If you want to place the Olive console in the time period it was developed, you MUST delve into some late 1960s / early 1970s DB magazines. They were the only ones right on top of it at the time.

EVERYBODY stole ideas from the Olive.
I worked at Angus helping to build their consoles, and the use of those "thumb switches" for EQ settings was ingenious. Angus consoles had them and they were in fact like having a graphic EQ set up vertically instead of horizontally. They were beyond intuitive, they were in fact completely familiar the first time you used them.
