Interview with Alan Parsons (audio engineer), 2001

Question: Alex Mardas’ weird console at Apple, any recollections of that?

Alan Parsons: Oh, my goodness. I mean, what a piece of junk. I mean, it really was unbelievable. I mean, held together with bits of strings and chewing gum was an understatement. I mean, it really was just the most unbelievable … the philosophies were the strangest things, eight tracks, eight faders, eight speakers, you know. It was really odd.

Question: Whatever happened to it?

Alan Parsons: Somebody bought it for £50. They were ripped off.
