can the comps/limiters on my 089 mixer be patched internally on the main busses(they are actually connected to the main buss faders physically) or must they be patch through external patch bay?

I own a 189

Hard to say what they're worth. I own the 189 for almost a year now. I've seen them go for almost 10 G - although it really depends on the condition. I got mine for free (well 100 EUR) and did all the recapping recently.

Just for hecks I'm posting submix of drums and bass of a song a did for a client - he wanted a darkish and a phat "incognito" style sound. It's what studer does well - dark and phat! It's just drums and bass, but you'll get the idea.

If you like an open and agressive board (SSL etc) - this would be just the opposite - dark and warm.

I'm going through a 089 now located at UCSD in San Diego. One major benefit is to replace all the BC109 and BC 179 transistors to the BC550/560 low noise types. That includes the thick film modules as well as the front ends for the line card 301's and the mic pre's, if you want to remove the hiss. The 301's need to stay as the offset trim access is the audio input to use the opamp's drive section and to avoid it's noisy input transistors. The other 748 opamps are swapped to National LME49710NA in the aux sends, reverb returns and compressor modules. The Lemo connectors used on the back did increase the costs of wiring this up as XLR's would be a tough fit on the rear panel. I'm still addressing the power supply issue as the -22 volt rails are low, (I may up to -24 volts) and increasing the audio rail psu current is another option if an outboard Power One linear is used.

These are quite a project if you include replacing dozens of transistors, EQ caps, tantalum coupling caps, etc. The results are clear, quiet and musical.
