  1. Encompassing Environments: The Tools For Creating Ambient Music

    Encompassing Environments: The Tools For Creating Ambient Music
    There's no doubt that ambient music is currently seeing a resurgence. It could be the well-timed Mort Garson and Laurie Spiegel reissues that piqued interest or even documentaries like Sisters With Transistors. Maybe it's the fact a pandemic effectively canceled band practice for the foreseeable future. Either way, we're here to embrace these soothing sounds. If you haven't dabbled in the ambient artform, it's incredibly easy and fun to zone out making lush landscapes. Without the need for bandmates, musicians can take their own spin on beat making, sound design, field recording, looping and create something all their own. Today we’re gonna take a look at some of the popular tools that will help you create your own ambient sounds. Continue reading →

  3. Milkman Sound And Vintage King Collab On The Amp Rackmount Edition

    Milkman Sound And Vintage King Collab On The Amp Rackmount Edition
    Any studio worth its weight in gold has amplifier options for days. Something that will set your space apart from the rest is the new rackmount version of The Amp. This collaboration from Milkman Sound and Vintage King will give you a rack-ready amp that easily plugs into your workflow and works well with both pedals and outboard gear. The new take on The Amp is actually the same as the beloved 50 Watt pedal version, but comes in a 19-inch rackmount chassis. The preamp of The Amp centers on a single 12AX7 running at high voltage in a discrete Class A circuit. Just like a guitar amplifier, the tube preamp reacts to what a player is playing, generating harmonics and a sweet sounding high fidelity tube tone that you will love. Continue reading →

    Quick Hits: Strymon NightSky Time-Warped Reverberator
    The beloved pedal makers at Strymon recently unleashed the brand's latest release, NightSky. This pedal takes on the form factor of the popular Volante Magnetic Echo Machine and gives users instant access to 13 presets (300 via MIDI) of lush, warm reverb with endless possibilities. NightSky is ideal for those who want to experiment with their reverb. The pedal offers up nine different knobs with additional button-based controls for dialing in the sound you're dreaming of. You can select different waveforms using the MOD section, sculpt the EQ of the effect with the TONE section, use GLIMMER and SHIMMER to enhance different frequencies and pitch shift your reverb... That's just the tip of the iceberg. Continue reading →
  5. Vintage King Audio's Dustin McLaughlin Picks His Hottest Pedals of 2019

    Vintage King Audio's Dustin McLaughlin Picks His Hottest Pedals of 2019
    Dustin McLaughlin from Vintage King Audio here, and when I wasn't behind the camera or working on editing videos for VK, I was checking out the hottest guitar pedals of 2019. To say this year was "monumental" for pedals would be an absolute understatement. There were enough incredible releases to keep the heads talking on forums until 2040! So what happened in the world of guitar pedals in 2019? The smaller companies that we've come to know and love over the past few years like Meris and Chase Bliss Audio gave us incredible new tools for our boards. Meanwhile, industry forefathers like Electro-Harmonix and Boss continued their dominance with epic recreations and a few new concepts. Continue reading →
  6. Vintage King's Inside Look At Meris

    Vintage King's Inside Look At Meris
    Nestled in among the other small one-level buildings in the sleepy beachside streets of Ventura, California, sits an unassuming old storefront. The sun-baked exterior and paper-lined windows offer a distinct contrast to what lay inside, the brain trust of one of the world's exciting pedal makers, Meris. Unboxing a Meris pedal or 500 Series module is an experience unlike any other. This is thanks in part to Engineer/Founder Terry Burton, DSP Engineer/VP Angelo Mazzocco, and Creative Director Jinna Kim. Each aspect of the brand's products, whether it be packaging and artwork or design and function, offer up a connective aesthetic and sound that is distinctly their own. Continue reading →
  7. First Listen: Meris Hedra 3-Voice Rhythmic Pitch Shifter

    First Listen: Meris Hedra 3-Voice Rhythmic Pitch Shifter
    When it comes to Meris, pedal enthusiasts can always expect the unexpected. Earlier today, the innovative brand announced the release of the Hedra and they are once again living up to that reputation. This 3-voice rhythmic pitch shifter is unlike anything to come before it. Simply put, the Hedra is a behemoth. Blistering guitar harmony leads that track unbelievably well? Check! Getting polyphonic sounds from your monosynth? Got it! Individual delays on each voice? Oh yeah, big time. Continue reading →
