    I may add that I've only used old H910 for slight detune by a few cents, never really used those for significant pitch shifting / harmony. Glitchy indeed, but they had a nice "sound".
    The H3000 I found to "sound" real close and may be just as "good" (not talking pitch shifting performance here) with slight different flavor, when talking about warm-fat-"organic" yet with great clearity & depth-spread sound quality. Pure pitch shifting performance & capability is another story for sure, H3000 is light years ahead the good old H910 pioneer.

    In 1975...
    H910 : 1500$
    Readout option 02 : 125$
    2nd output option 04 : 240$
    Keyboard (mono) : 500$
    Keyboard (polyphonic) $600$

    So an expanded H910 with poly keyboard was 2465$.
    What could you buy with that money in 1975?

    I have honestly no idea I was not around yet :) I would guess quite a nice car with a cool big V8 in it?

    Call Nate at Get Off My Case; those guys build all our road cases; they are very well made and he may even hook you up a bit if you tell him your in the West Coast familia! ;)

    Good question, the equivalent purchasing power is almost $11 000 today.

    Cool stuff, I had never heard the whole session before, thanks for sharing.
    Btw, always found this to be one of the very best interpretations of "Little Wing" right there (last instrumental "demo" piece Mike is playing at the end).

    Well, well. Did you know the TERC circuit board looks just like that?

    Hey AnalogKid85!

    I would love to know what preset that "infinite switch" is on. I'm a big fan of the infinite reverbs & have an 'ol Lexicon PCM81.

    Thanks,
    Kyle
