    All-


    Fred Foster is looking for a Thorn Q-File to add to his console museum at ETC. If anyone knows of one in complete condition that's available, please let me know.

    Thanks

    No Q-File, but I know of a guy in Hicksville, L.I., that has a Channel Track. Possibly a Multi-Q and I am dead certain a Micro-Q.

    Wow, and old Q-File. How cool. I think that makes me feel a little old. Good luck with that Steve. Ahhh, and the old Micro-Q. I sure suffered a few turns with that one. Good luck to you Steve.

    Curious as to figure out what this Q-file thing is, I googled and then did an image search and well... Thorn Q-file - Google Image Search 3rd row, second column. Van, might you have one?

    Btw, anyone care to make this slightly educational and explain what they are? :grin:

    Im thinking it might be some sort of punch card method of storing cues?

    The Thorn/Kliegl Q-File was one of the first widely accepted memory lighting control systems. It was installed in many opera houses and high-profile TV studios. Kliegl Q-File 1000 Preliminary Data.

    It could also be argued that there wouldn't be an ETC today had it not been for the Q-File.
