In 1990 we were approached by the managing director of a big recording studio complex in South Africa with the request if we could design and produce all the cables necessary to run a very big studio complex. We did, and one of the products was the balanced FLEXICON B4 especially designed to be used in mixing consoles.
Combining superior transmission quality, a very low conductor to conductor capacitance and a very high screening factor combined with a very high flexibility and a high durability is not simple. But as always a very fine design was the result. The direct effect was that we sold 75 km. FLEXICON B4 to SSL, Neve and Focusrite. This 75 km. was to be used in the three different 96 channel mixing consoles especially made for the BOP studios in South Africa.
