    Yea,
    I made a similar request a few years ago on the light network, and no-one seemed to even have a good idea where to look.
    I even called all the standard used gear sites... no joy...
    Good Luck!

    We've got one here, but it's not for sale :)

    I've actually written a library on the Hog 1 to control a Catalyst before.

    Scott,

    I will be there (private fixture training) Thursday and Friday can I come up and see it. When it was around I was still stuck on Colortran and Strand desks. So I have yet to see one in person.

    Lee,

    That should be possible. Just have the Service guys you're with contact Brad Schiller or myself.

    Hey scott, can i come up and watch you run a DL2 off of it :D. I would like to see it, i have never seen one in person either. I found a pic a while back, and it looked like a large console with a bunch of cables everywhere, but thats about all i could tell, the pic was terrible.

    I found a pic in the lighting museum (looks about like half the stuff laying around my garage)

    Hi,

    Just to let you know if you are still interested there is a Wholehog I on www.ebay.co.uk at the moment.

    Hope this helps.

    I got to see one once when I stopped by the CWP office in Van Nuys a few years back.

    I have one here in my shop in Nashville, TN (also not for sale). I actually just resurrected it from the storage trailer and wrote a profile for some Elation Design Spot 250s to see if it still had any life in it... It runs great until it crashes (which it routinely does). This console was #5, it's name is Spotco... Named & Built for SpotCo in England and Used on a Rolling Stones tour in the early '90s then sold to Opryland USA in Nashville, after the park shut down at the end of 1997 TMG acquired the desk. It was actually my first ever moving light desk, and I was very happy the other day to see it still running. It is truly a work of art and there are things about it I still miss.

    P.S. Does anyone know how to get in touch with Nick Archdale? I have a few questions for him about the desk.

    Now that's an old console....

    to the above post ^^^ I don't believe the WH1 would have ran off a HDD, when WH2 saved to floppies??

    Hey Brad, can I have your office space? I will trade you. ( If you are going to LDI this year... You should bring the WH1 for display purposes?) Marketing by showing customers that you have been around awhile and that Highend products are quality/solid and still works after a long time ;)

    It ran on a PC, and the PC is hard drive based . . . .

    Right.... shoot. Didn't really think about that one... Well I feel stupid now. In my defense it was really really late when I posted ^^^

    No problem! Likely backups were to an FDD as well . . . not much else at the time.
