    VK Shootout: Urei/Universal Audio 1176 Compressor vs. Reproductions, Plug-Ins, and Pedals
    The Urei/Universal Audio 1176 is an icon in the recording studio and has had a profound influence on modern gear makers. So it's no surprise that many companies have sought to remake and add to the 1176 since it was first released in 1967. How do these 1176-influenced compressors compare to the original? That's what we set out to find in our latest shootout. While there are many different 1176 emulations out there, we gathered a small group of gear, including reproductions, plug-ins, and pedals to take to The 45 Factory. This could have been an all rackmount compressor shootout, but we decided to offer up a variety of options at different price points. The list of gear in the shootout includes a vintage Urei 1176 Rev D, Universal Audio's modern 1176 LN reproduction, Origin Effects Cali76 Compact Deluxe, Origin Effects Cali76 Stacked, Universal Audio 1176LN plug-in, and Avid Pro Tools BF76 plug-in.

    How Will Avid Pro Tools Price Changes Effect You?
    Starting July 1st, Avid will be making some changes to their Pro Tools and creative software pricing. We’re here to give you some insight on what's involved, what it means to you, and how you can buy ahead to lock-in pricing on certain items for next few years. How Avid Pricing Works  Historically, a Pro Tools user would purchase a hardware/software bundle that contained a permanent license for the software. You merely made paid for updates to keep with the latest version releases. Later, Avid moved to an a la carte situation where you could buy the hardware and software separately as you pleased, which made things a lot more flexible. Continue reading →

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
