  3. First Listen: Retro Instruments 500PRE

    First Listen: Retro Instruments 500PRE
    When Retro Instruments first announced the brand's new 500PRE ($799), we knew we were in love before we ever even heard it. After all, what's not to love about bringing the Sta-Level design to the 500 Series world and packing three tubes into that compact module. Little did we know, we had something to do with the inspiration for it. "It was inspired by the Vintage King April Fools’ Day post on the 500 Series Fairchild 670," says Retro Instruments Owner/Designer Phil Moore. "“The performance of the 500PRE exceeded my expectations. It’s based on professional tube console program amplifiers from the era of the Sta-Level and 176. It’s got 75 dB of gain and no compromises."

  4. First Listen: Strymon Iridium Amp And IR Cab Simulator Guitar Pedal

    First Listen: Strymon Iridium Amp And IR Cab Simulator Guitar Pedal
    Over the past decade or so, musicians have increasingly looked to cab sims, impulse responses and DIs to lighten their load in terms of weight and volume. The new Strymon Iridium ($399) offers a different take on these options for guitarists by giving them a fully-featured cab sim/IR loader that lives on their pedalboard. Have you ever plugged your guitar directly into a full-range monitor with your favorite overdrive engaged? It sounds like a coffee can filled with hornets angrily buzzing around. With the Iridium placed after your overdrive and before the monitor, this transforms the can of bees into your favorite tube amp with the flick of a switch. Continue reading →

  6. First Listen: Chase Bliss Audio Mood Micro-Looper And Delay

    First Listen: Chase Bliss Audio Mood Micro-Looper And Delay
    Joel Korte of Chase Bliss Audio gave the pedal world quite a shock last week when he dropped the new Mood micro-looper and delay. With many in the community looking towards the previously announced Blooper and Automatone as the brand's next potential releases, the Mood pedal was a pleasant surprise. The pedal is another collaboration (much like the recent Dark World), between Chase Bliss Audio and two other brands, Old Blood Noise Endeavors and Drolo Effects. Essentially, the stompbox features two separate pedals inside with the left channel being dedicated to effects and the right side acting as the micro-looper. More on that in a minute though...

    First Listen: TC Electronic DVR250-DT Digital Vintage Reverb Controller
    The modern-day studio has become a place where differing thoughts and design aesthetics merge together to give us more creative tools. For the release of the TC Electronic DVR250-DT, the brand's designers have built something that will equally delight fans of digital reverb and those that crave more tactile control over their sound. At its core, the DVR250-DT is an incredible reverb plug-in. TC Electronic has taken inspiration from one of the most beloved reverb units ever created, the EMT-250, and kept very faithful to its classic sound. While the 100-pound radiator-style build of the original is gone, something very unique has taken its place. Continue reading →
  8. First Listen: Aston Stealth

    First Listen: Aston Stealth
    Aston Microphones set the pro audio world ablaze in 2016 when they introduced their first releases, the Origin and Spirit. In the time since, they've continued to design innovative microphones with a similar hearty build aesthetic, traits that both extend to their brand new Stealth mic. The word "unique" is only a starting point for defining the Aston Stealth. The microphone features an internal Class A preamp, an internal shock mount system, and four different voice settings that will give users a wide range of options to use in the studio. Each of these voice settings feature their own high-quality signal path, which helps to keep phase distortion to a minimum. Continue reading →
  9. First Listen: Antelope Audio Edge Modeling Microphones

    First Listen: Antelope Audio Edge Modeling Microphones
    Antelope Audio has expanded their Edge series with the release of the new Edge Solo, Edge Duo and Edge Quadro. All of these microphones come replete with incredible vintage microphone emulations that will allow you access to classic sounds in the studio, in addition to just being great mics on their own. Last week I was able to spend a day in the studio with the new Edge series microphones, and after testing each microphone on a variety of sources, I was blown away. There are so many options available right out of the box and the variety of tones I was able to get from a single microphone without leaving the control room was extremely satisfying Continue reading →
