Check out some of the in-depth features of SSL's VHD Mic Preamp Modules!

Whether you need to track pristine vocals, crunched drums or electric guitars on the edge of sonic destruction, the VHD Pre delivers a powerful and versatile sound shaping tool kit - the perfect analogue companion to your digital recording system. Based on the VHD circuit from our acclaimed Duality console, the VHD Pre adds four SSL mic preamps to any line level DAW audio interface, transforming it into a professional quality, multi-channel analogue recording system. The four ultra-clean, high-grade mic preamps are combined with independent Variable Harmonic Drive circuits that use 100% analogue signal paths to generate rich harmonic distortion - adding SSL analogue attitude to your digital recordings. As you increase the input gain, the Variable Harmonic Drive circuit introduces a blendable mix of 2nd or 3rd harmonic distortion to your source material, taking it from gentle valve-style warmth through to trashy transistoresque grunge. It’s a new world of overdriven possibilities. The Solid State Logic XLogix X-Rack VHD Input Module is devilishly warm and a dirty alternative to the pure Mic Amp Module. The front end combines classic SSL character with the modern Variable Harmonic Drive circuit, delivering a time machine of overdrive characteristics.

Overview of the features and specifications of the Radial Engineering Firefly Tube Direct Box

Radial Engineering's Firefly tube direct box is a class-A fully discrete instrument front-end designed for both studio and live performance. The Firefly begins with two inputs to allow quick changes on stage. This can be done using the front panel switch or with a standard latching remote footswitch. The instrument signal is immediately routed to a tuner output that is always on. Following the award-winning Radial JDV, the Firefly is also equipped with Drag Control load correction. This enables the artist to adjust the load on the magnetic pickup for a much more natural rendering. When bypassed, the load jumps to 4 meg-ohms enabling the Firefly to be used with piezo pickups. The class-A circuit features a select 12AX7 tube drive with both gain and trim controls allowing the user to increase the grit and warmth as needed.

Overview of the features and specifications of the Rupert Neve Designs 500 Series 551 Inductor EQ

The Rupert Neve Designs 551 Inductor EQ is the only equalizer for the 500 Series actually designed by Rupert Neve. Featuring 3 bands of EQ inspired by Mr. Neve's most prized vintage designs, along with custom-wound inductors, transformers and class-A gain blocks, the 551 brings the thick, powerful lows and sweet highs of Rupert’s classics to the 500-Series format for the very first time. The 3-band, custom-tapped inductor EQ on the 551 was inspired by RND's favorite portions of Rupert's vintage EQ designs. The low frequency band is designed to produce a creamy, resonant bass response – however, unlike the vintage modules that inspired it, the LF band on the 551 can be used as either a shelf or a peak filter, adding punch, dimension, and control to your low end. The 551’s inductor midrange band is ideal for sweetening vocals and instruments while bringing them forward in a mix, and its proportional "Q" response makes it well-suited for minimizing problematic frequencies. The high frequency band is a hybrid vintage / modern design, blending inductor circuitry with capacitor-based topologies to achieve vintage tones with enhanced control. The High Pass filter is a 12dB/octave design with a fixed 80Hz frequency, and can be used in tandem with the low frequency EQ to add low-end presence without clouding the source material. As Rupert originally intended with his most prized classic designs, each EQ section uses low-feedback, class-A discrete electronics to prevent low-level artifacts and harshness from detracting from the tonal shaping. However, this new circuit is a decidedly modern design with updated techniques and components that were simply not available 35 years ago, and should not be considered a "clone". Both the high and low band can be switched from shelf to peak curves and offer 15 dB of boost or cut. The high band can be switched from 8 kHz to 16 kHz, and the low band can be selected at 35 Hz, 60 Hz, 100 Hz or 220 Hz. The inductor based Mid Band offers 6 center frequencies; 200 Hz, 350 Hz, 700 Hz, 1.5 kHz, 3 kHz and 6 kHz. The Mid Band also has a "Mid Hi Q" switch to narrow the bandwidth of the filter.

Overview of the features and specifications of the Laney IRT-STUDIO Tube Guitar Amp Head

Featuring the same great IRONHEART tones as the bigger heads but in a low wattage studio package with some neat features added. The IRT-STUDIO features a USB Audio I/O and a RE-AMP send jack. The USB supplies both a dry signal and the processed signal – split left and right to your DAW – directly into either your PC/MAC or iPAD, which means that you can alter the guitar tone of your original recording – without having to re-track anything! The IRT-STUDIO has an internal dummy load – so unlike a conventional tube loaded amp – you don’t need to connect an external speaker – Which gives you truly silent recording! It also houses a high quality speaker-emulated record out immediately after the output section which means it delivers all valve tone to your DAW or PA or both at the same time for recording your live shows.

Overview of the construction and components of the IsoAcoustics L8R Series Speaker Stands

The only audio speaker stands that address the PIF Principles, the three elements affecting sound, IsoAcoustic's ISO-L8R adjustable speaker stand design system is a unique patented design that provides superior audio performance by supporting the PIF Principles in acoustic design: • Placement – proximity to adjacent and nearby surfaces. ISO-L8R audio stands raise the audio speakers or studio monitors off the supporting surface and away from adjacent surfaces to reduce reflections. • Isolation – from supporting surfaces. Decoupling the audio speakers or studio monitors from the supporting surface reduces the energy from exciting other objects, and allows the speaker and enclosure to float independently. • Focus – Raising and tilting the audio speakers and studio monitors creates an ideal listening position by forming an equilateral triangle from the speaker to the listener, with tweeters tilted to the listener's exact ear level.
