That was my guess by looking at the cover of a Yabby You/Michael Prophet at Dub Station (King Tubbys) CD. I also see DBX, UA 1176 compressors, Drawmer gates or comps, AMS digital effects unit (the RMS or RMX 16 is it?), and another piece I can't identify. It's only a partial photo.

We were showing old Criteria MCI boards on a thread a while back and that desk looks like old Criteria MCI's when i was there in the late 70's

Glad to see that another one made such marvelous music.

"I Got You" by James Brown is also an MCI desk. Jeep and Dave Harrison were some Funky Cold medinas, it would seem.


think these would sell?

The similarity in the layout, however struck me.
Talk about **** and Shinola.

I'm apparently looking at a newer (and much bigger) console they had at King Tubby's, probably in the 80's. It does look like an MCI though.
