We had to replace every faceplate on every module but never fixed the Patch bay or center section that I remember. Moding all the mic pres because they would go into oscillation because they were able to pass signal from almost DC to light. Mine has the Atari to PC conversion done. I have used a bunch of Mozart’s when I was in LA.

Second get your soldering iron ready since if the caps are original or close to original you are going to have a big re-capping job ahead of you. Now the big problems. If you were to use Neve Modules in these you wouldl have to replace the power supplies with the newer ones or they could not handle the power.

Everything that Micheal says seems to ring true to me. They were very nice modules with a very similar design at least in the schematic to what Neve did on the first Focusrite aek.


It had MZ and MZ modules which if I remember right were Inline dual input modules and single mic,line input modules.

November 28, They were very nice console’s for the price. Moaart issue with the master section also rings true and I plan on attacking it this winter, I’ve been pouring over the schematics and have some angles of approach scoped out.

We had a good tech at the time and he went through cleaned things up a bit.

Amek mozart, any good?

November mzart, I worked for the Bakery Studio in North Hollywood for 4 years and they had serial number of the Mozart in the A room. Had to mod them to roll off about Khz. Big mistake from a bean counter Good luck, Michael Greene. Is it any good? What would the annual maintanance cost be aprox? Mozqrt this way worth the hassle of installment and maintanance? It had NO Rupert Neve modules. The RN modules had a bunch of daughter boards on them for the EQ and they had a bunch of tight small caps.

Or are you being fed a line of crap. So fucking hot that we had to re-cap all the modules after a year because they used cheap caps that dried out from the heat. I wish I could remember exactly. Again a bunch of beta testing. The only thing that I noticed was that you could hear the weak link in the console and that was the master section. They suck to re-cap. They packed too much into them with almost the whole channel strip fitted with dual concentric knobs it made it tough to see the eq and also the sends but you got used to it.


It had mute switches on the modules and all after it had them right above the fader with bigger switches. I also think he did some op-amp swaping but I can’t be sure.

The real question is are you really getting a Mozart with RN modules? These consoles run extremely hot and all the electrolytic caps are standard temp they dry up quick.

The automation on those boards was simple but effective, and easy to use. If you can do that and also maybe do some mods to the center section you will have a real decent console to sum with not to mention something not bad to track with as far amfk eq’s go. It was a nice sounding console but had some issues that I had the “Pleasure” of helping fix.

What does it sound like? The underside pan was basically hand hammered sheet metal and the Elco connectors were wired differently than all others that came after it. It worked much more stable after that not to mention you could actually replace the computer when it blew up.

It was OK but with some mods could be made better.
