need to adjust the XP2016 engage lettering on the faceplate's right...
or will this unit plug into a XP?



Is this actually a pre-production unit, or photoshop dream?

John-Martin 12-15-2011 07:13 PM

I'm guessing photoshop. Also, even though it's a 19" it's short a channel compared to the 2016.

manny 12-16-2011 03:45 AM

from what i understand demos are out

jnkarrik 12-16-2011 07:20 AM

I'd trade gain control for aux select on the front panel; espercially with only five inputs.

Special.K 12-16-2011 06:08 PM

If they were going to intergrate a EQ why not just add the XP's 3-band why bother with a 2-band with the ability to add the XP... too much EQ in my mind as i would still add the XP for the EQ...
I do like the idea of seperating the crossover section as i have never seen it used on the 2016s we have!

Laurin 12-16-2011 06:39 PM

Trade the bass & treble knobs for a lo cut filter knob and reso knob.
Gain has to go, input select has to come.

Special.K 12-16-2011 07:24 PM

Thanks Laurin i didn't notice there wasn't a input select on each channel, i love the input select on the 2016!

on a side note, my 2016, 1620 and my DL all have broken down at the same time and i have gone back to using on of my MP24's, i have fallen in love with it all over again, great sound, just needs rotarys insted of the sliders!

David Meza 12-16-2011 08:22 PM

I call bullsh*t on this although it is somewhat decent Photoshop work (even though they didn't completely blend out the seams from the original images). Note that the crossfader section can only accommodate channels 1-4 even though it has 5 channels. Additionally, there is a switch for the XP2016S on there.

If you believe this is real, then I'd like to offer you some beach front property in Palm Springs along with a few ounces of premium snake oil.

Special.K 12-16-2011 08:36 PM

David, i don't think that’s the point, yes it doesn't look right and god know if it is a fake or another Rane demo (have you seen the questionable digital images on their site). For me it's just a concept no matter who made the photo and weather or not it's real doesn't matter to me personally.

Just something for us to crap on about!!

Now how about that "Premium Snake Oil" you were offering, can you ship it to Australia, do you accept a credit card in my friend’s name????
For that matter how do you get oil out of a snake,,,, sounds dangerous???

manny 12-17-2011 03:23 AM

this is not a photoshop this mixer is currently being tested

Just guessing, but


Special.K 12-17-2011 08:16 PM

I don’t know Laurin I have lots of snakes on my Farm but I’m not sure if I could entice them into a blender, maybe if I put a mouse in the blender as bait!!!!

Manny, maybe people are right about that photo but it doesn’t mean the mixer doesn’t exist there are always prototypes drifting around, I know from personal experience I have had hush-hush demo mixers given to me to try out in my work shop from time to time it’s not uncommon! The last couple I had came with contracts to sign making sure I didn’t take photos or tell anyone about the mixers, both of those mixers were never made!

Has anyone ever seen the HBG (Bozak) DLX mixer? I was told at least 3 of those prototypes are out there but I have never actually seen one. I was told it was designed and built by the last few remaining original company engineers. They were built in 2010/2011 and have nothing to do with the new company and are 100% original with added features from the DLC.

I've only heard rumours and I thought it was just a myth but I would love to see one if it exists sounds like a nice bit of kit.. Maybe Santa will bring me one for Christmas!

Closest thing I've seen is this. Bozak HB-1-8A

Special.K 12-17-2011 11:56 PM

I find it strange to find a cross fader on a rotary mixer, I have never seen one used!
does anyone use the cross fader on say a 2016???

For some reason I can not view anything on those links. What am I doing wrong? They say the view is not available at this time.

this the DLX from mario giannotte and buzzy beck...

Captainjr 12-18-2011 11:51 AM

That is it Michele. I did not know if the photo I once seen was real or a mock up. The story I got was there were 5 built for customers to demo but the tooling involved proved to be too expensive so Buzzy was just sitting on it. I would like to know more about this if anyone has info or any real photos. I tried to find out more but the only thing I got was that supposedly Buzzy sent one to the west coast for John Kimura and one to the east coast for Mario G. to demo. There is one installed in a large night club, one was shipped overseas for evaluation, and he has one. I am glad to find out it is real and not just a photo shop hype. Thanks!

Captainjr, the link that I posted is the same picture that michele shared here. I think that a few months ago there were more photos of the HBG mixer on Mario Gianotte's profile but now I just found this one...

Special.K 12-18-2011 04:01 PM

I like it, nice and simple, i supose it is just too expencive to build mixers by hand these days!
I couldn't see the line either, is that something to do with my computer maybe?

djmariog 12-18-2011 06:24 PM

This is my mixer and my photo from my facebook page. Designed by Buzzy & myself.
HBG AUDIO DESIGNED BY; H=Hammarlund / B=BECK / G=GIANNOTTE .
More can be seen on my facebook page. Buzzy & I are still working on a few changes.

Happy Holidays
Mario G

Special.K 12-19-2011 01:36 AM

Nice work Mario, hope it works out, it would be good to have another option for a quality mixer!
