I acquired this classic digital mixer for a song because the screen had gone out. The old CCFL tube light had gone bad. I purchased a very thin strip of LEDs, found a 12V power rail from the power supply, and installed them as a replacement. It looks great and should keep this working for a long time.
I've noticed my blog has a lot of "audio tech" content and not much "production sound" content. I do production sound work full time, but there's usually an NDA in place or I'm just too busy on set to take pictures. (For example I recently worked on a shoot featuring a new 2023 Toyota vehicle and wasn't allowed to take photos.) Anyway, I'll try to include more production posts (including visual media or not) in the future.
