  1. Achieving Console Sounds With Rupert Neve Designs 5060 Centerpiece, 5059 Satellite And 5057 Orbit

    Achieving Console Sounds With Rupert Neve Designs 5060 Centerpiece, 5059 Satellite And 5057 Orbit
    Earlier this year, Rupert Neve Designs gave its line of summing mixers a significant boost. Two of the brand's classics, the 5059 Satellite and 5060 Centerpiece, were given the Shelford Blue color treatment and the new 5057 Orbit was added to the summing family.  With the addition of the 5057 Orbit, it's easier than ever for studios to achieve Rupert's classic console sound, no matter their size or budget constraints. So how do these summing mixer options from Rupert Neve Designs differ? We'll get way more in-depth in our new demo video below, but for starters, here's an overview of what each piece offers up to recording and mix facilities. Continue reading →
  2. Rupert Neve Designs Summing Mixer Family Expands With 5057 Orbit

    Rupert Neve Designs Summing Mixer Family Expands With 5057 Orbit
    Just a week or so after the news that the 5059 Satellite and 5060 Centerpiece would be getting the Shelford Blue treatment, Rupert Neve Designs has announced its summing family will be expanding further. The new 5057 Orbit ($1999) condenses Rupert Neve's classic console sound into a 1U rackmount unit with 16x2 class-A analog summing. With the release of the 5057 Orbit, Rupert Neve Designs is offering something summing-related for recording studios of all shapes and sizes. At the top, there is the award-winning 5088 recording console. This is the culmination of six decades of console design from Rupert Neve and its technology flows throughout the rest of the brand's product line. Before we get into the details of the 5057 Orbit, here's a quick breakdown of each summing option: Continue reading →
  3. Vintage King Workflow: Jim Kaufman

    Vintage King Workflow: Jim Kaufman
    In our Vintage King Workflow series, we enter the studios of audio creators to learn about the gear that is essential to their process. For Santa Monica-based producer and mix engineer Jim Kaufman (Anti-Flag / Beware of Darkness), the world-class conversion and summing power of Burl Audio have had the biggest impact on his output."I was never happy with the conversion that I had before. Navon [Weisberg] at Vintage King told me about the Burl stuff," says Jim. "I knew Dave Cobb was using it, Dave and I have the same manager, and I love Dave's records. So I went in and I got the Mothership and it was amazing." Continue reading →
  4. Fresh Listen: Shadow Hills Industries The Equinox

    Fresh Listen: Shadow Hills Industries The Equinox
    The Equinox from Shadow Hills Industries has been around for a number of years, but often gets overlooked in terms of the sheer amount of tools it can bring to a session. The 2U rackmount unit can be looked at as a complete small-scale recording console with mic pres, summing buss, and monitoring section. The mic pre portion of The Equinox features two of Shadow Hill's signature GAMA mic pres, which offer 60dB of gain, 24 position stepped attenuators, phantom power, and 1/4" DI input. Where these mic pres truly shine though is the switchable output transformers in the amplifier section. Continue reading →
  5. Recording And Mixing With The Burl B16 Mothership And B32 Vancouver

    Recording And Mixing With The Burl B16 Mothership And B32 Vancouver
    Burl Audio is well known for the incredible B80 Mothership, but their gear offerings extend beyond the famed converter rack and give users a number of different options in the studio. In an effort to better showcase the Burl B16 Mothership and B32 Vancouver summing mixer, we headed to the 45 Factory with Audio Consultant Andy Caitlin (a.k.a The Lasso) to work on a track that he conceived during a recent tour. For the uninitiated, the Burl B16 Mothership is a 2-slot version of the much bigger, 10-slot B80 Mothership. The 2U rack mount form factor allows users of smaller project studios to take advantage of Burl converters. For Andy's track, he recorded piano, drums, electric guitar, and synthesizer through a B16 Mothership with the BAD8 and BDA8 daughter cards, and a BMB4 Waves SoundGrid card connecting the rig to the studio's Mac.

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.
