Do you remember?
The Producer from Gates Radio Company, then a division of Harris Intertype, was a four-channel recording mixer designed for production. The transistorized Producer contained 12 inputs in two microphones and two high-level channels, a self-contained monitor amplifier and speaker and cueing facilities.
A 1964 advertisement for this unit claimed that the Producer "fills a long existing void between multi-function audio consoles and standard commercial sound equipment."
That was then
In 1934, Carl Smith established the Smith Practical Radio Institute, which later became the Cleveland Institute of Electronics.
In a 1965 ad for the school in Broadcast Engineering, Smith (above) said, "There is no substitute for knowledge. Even if a friend or relative can get you a good job, you'll fail mighty fast if you can't produce results. The first good emergency will separate the men from the boys."
Turning 70 this year, the institute is now a privately owned co-educational technical college. The institute's mission is to educate individuals in technical skills through independent study methods. The CIE prepares its students to become skilled technicians and engineering technologists who can solve electronic engineering and computer technology problems.
