In the June 2005 “L.A. Grapevine,” it was incorrectly reported that Flying Faders systems are out of manufacture. In fact, Martinsound (www.martinsound.com; 800/582-3555) in Alhambra, Calif., currently manufactures Flying Faders (pictured) and has recently delivered systems to the Finn Brothers, Blackbird Studios, Light the Fire Media and the Foo Fighters. According to Doug Osborne, Martinsound Inc. director of sales & marketing, “Although the Hewlett Packard Viper Real-Time Co-Processor used in FF systems is out of production, limited quantities are available at Martinsound. In addition, Flying Faders II, which eliminates the need for the Viper card and other hard-to-find components, is currently in the late stage of development.”
