360 Systems

Classic Recording Studio Equipment

360 Systems was founded in 1972 by Robert Easton, a U.S.C. cinema department graduate working in the Hollywood film industry. The firm’s original business plan focused on applying new semiconductor technology to products for the music and recording industries. Many of these “firsts” from the 1970s have since become industry standards. Starting in the 1970s, new semiconductor and software developments enabled a wealth of creative tools for these markets.

The 360 Systems Model 2800 Programmable Equaliser was a fairly unique product at the time of its release in 1980, with its tactile controls and programmability. Using a Z-80 microprocessor and CMOS memory storage, the 360 Systems Model 2800 Programmable Equaliser was able to store up to 28 user created EQ curves.
