    stuck way in the back. I think it's famous for being one of the first of its kind. So I'm cleaning it up, but likely needs some work, not sure if I'll ever get it running but it brings back a lot of memories.

    Oh yes...........had one of those. It was how I got hooked on recording at home for sure. Mine came with a separate mixer/ compressor called an M-15. Awesome little mixer for it's time.......but the compressor was even better. I still have my M-15 today and it's really useful for compression on lots of things. Ok....I know........sounds crazy.

    I did a search, but didn't find M-15 audio compressor, but I did find an M-15 air compressor. Do you have a link?

    Sorry.........my fault...........it's an MN-15. Search for that. Later re-named to an MN-50.

    I'm pretty sure it needs a belt. I remember seeing a big bag o' belts on ebay one time, I think it was cheap also. I may go look again.

    I still have my old X-15 and the screw-on piggyback battery box accessory. I did have the MN-50, but sold that on eBay a few years back. I should pull it out and see if it still works. Kinda suspect the belts may have deteriorated with age. Had a lot of fun way back then with it. Bought in 1986 for $415(US) from Union Music in Worcester, MA .

    Yeah....that X-15 was my first unit and I did lots of hours of recording on it for a long time. It came with the battery box and the MN-50. I lent it to a band buddy at one point and right after I got a Tascam 388...so I never asked for the Fostex back. Not too long ago he told me it's still working!! Wow!! As it happens...I also have 2 MN-50's. Not sure how I ended up with 2. They both work....and if you want some unique compression sounds....give one a try. Using the mic input with the adjustable compression really levels out the input while adding some useable tones. A blast from the past!!
