And The Answer is !........Nile Rodgers. This story "word for word" was in this month's MOJO Magazine. This quote is from INTERVIEW Magazine November 6, 2013. I guess Nile tells that story often, or the Mojo interviewer was lazy. You decide.

EHRLICH: You crossed paths with Sinatra again later, right?

RODGERS: Quincy Jones was producing a record for him, and Quincy had decided that he wanted to take a leap into the digital age and record on a Sony digital tape recorder. At that time, the only two people in America who owned them were Frank Zappa and myself. They asked Frank Zappa, who was closer to them in L.A., and I guess Zappa said no, so they asked me. I said, “Absolutely.” So they came and recorded on my tape recorder, and I’m standing in the room—I’m sure that Mr. Sinatra thought I was an assistant engineer or something. So I said, “Mr. Sinatra, I don’t know if you remember me, but I’m Pud.” And he looked at me and went, “Wow, Pud. What are you doing here?” I said, “Well, the tape recorder you’re using—that’s my tape recorder.” And he says, “What do you mean that’s your tape recorder?” I said, “I’m the biggest record producer in the world.” And Mr. Sinatra said, “I thought Quincy was the biggest record producer in the world.” And I went, “No. That was last year.” [laughs]

My guess it is one of the digital recording consoles that were sold for mere U$ 400 in last year's auction...

No shit ! Both his parents were junkies. In 1983 he also owned a Synclavier which he used on Madonna's Like a Virgin album. Disco still sucks though.
