Default TRADE: ProControl Main Unit and 2 fader packs

Edit (27/07/12):
>>>Gone! Thanks Jason!<<<


Looking to trade in a ProControl main unit (faulty - for parts or repair) and 2 fader-packs (working - but may need a service).

Am not interested in $$$ sale, just trade. All reasonable offers are welcome such as microphones, outboard gear etc. Would even consider a bucket of mic-leads. Audio gear only, tho. I already have a garden-hose and a wheelbarrow.

Located East-Coast Australia.

Email me for photos.

If you were in the US, I'd definitely be interested... but the shipping cost of something this big from Oz to the US would probably exceed the value of the trade.

Just looked up shipping cost to the US. Both units in one parcel would be around $200AU for standard air mail. Sounds feasible to me.

Make me an offer I can't refuse

What exactly is wrong with the main unit? Does it power up or is it totally dead?

I have several boxes of stuff that I can't remember what's in them as well (mostly cables), but off the top of my head, I have the following stuff laying around... I honestly don't think that any or all of this stuff I have is really equal in value to a procontrol, but I'm not really sure what a broken Procontrol is worth these days:

1. Roland GR-30 Guitar synth. Also have an old Mac iicx with the GR30 editor software on it which makes creating patches for it much easier.

2. Audiotechnica AT822 stereo mic. I've only used this a few times to record footsteps and a few other random sound effects.

3. Blackburst generator - 1U rack mount centennial video systems brand. Has 4 BNC outs, one of them is damaged but the other 3 work fine.

4. I also have a few PT6 era ilok assets, I think the only ones really worth transferring at this point would be the soundtoys ones, which are TDM only. (iirc I have soundblender, pitchdoctor, filterfreak, and pitchblender). The soundtoys assets can be individually upgraded to the most current version, or used to discount the price of the v4 TDM bundle.

If any of this stuff is interesting to you, let me know. john_toolbox [at] hotmail [dot] com

The main unit powers up but freezes after a while. The lights flicker randomly, blink nervously. Power cycle sometimes helps, sometimes not. Wouldnt trust it in production. That's why it's for parts or repair. I don't expect big value for it.

The 2 fader packs are in decent condition considering their age. Work as they should as well as I can tell. Not sure what the 2nd hand value is.

I'd recommend this gear for someone who has a working pro control studio and wants 16 more faders (=2 faderpacks) plus a bunch of spare parts (pro control).

John, Unfortunately the gear you listed is not what we're after. Am interested in outboard gear (preamps, processors,effects) or microphones for studio or live use.

No problem, as I mentioned I didn't really feel that what I had was equal to the value of your pro control anyways. I'll let you know if I end up with anything else that might interest you, otherwise good luck with the trade, sounds like it will be a good deal for someone.

What about 1 fader pack in trade for 1 kick mic (d112, b52, d6...) plus one SM57?

Hope you don't mind me butting in here.

Jan, it sounds like the PSU is faulty on your ProControl.

I've had a few of these over the years and it's a common problem. I had the same issue on the fader pack, same symptons, was quite an easy fix.

Stef.
