I saw it at AES NYC

I'd been an AES member since 1973 and saw this 'beast' at AES NYC in 1978, I believe. This was it's ONLY showing and 3M made tape specifically for it and this show, as I remember. The reels of tape had to weigh 15-20lbs. It was an awesome site to see. This was also the same show where MCI debuted the series 600 console.
Being from Southern California, this was the first East Coast AES I had ever been to. The difference was AMAZING!! Everyone was dressed in suit & tie as opposed to jeans and tie-dyed in LA. It made a huge impression on me.
