Additional to Plasma meters

by Peter Clark
(London)

The origins of the plasma meters come from CBS London who gave MCI an NTP plasma meter and said, "This, all along the console, please." The meters originally had a "sample and hold" feature, but were horrific to make both in terms of time and cost, so MCI commissiones a Mk2 version, the one most people know.

Plasma NEW
by: John sisti

The first place for media so I saw were in the mid 70s at A&M. They were so fast and accurate you couldn’t keep track of your levels. We found when we mixed on them they would end up being about 10 to 15 DB below what we really had thought we were aiming for.
They definitely got better in the years to follow.
