    Eric Valentine Breaks Down UnderTone Audio's UNFa-1 Accessory Box
    Eric Valentine is a beloved record producer and engineer who's had his hands on countless hit records over the years. Throughout 2020, his YouTube series, Making Records, has been a great source of inspiration for those who have been stuck inside and want to learn new skills for recording and mixing. Aside from his work in the studio, Eric also heads up UnderTone Audio. The brand has been manufacturing a wide array of analog-based outboard gear for several years, including the UnFairchild 670 MKII. The UnFairchild is a painstaking recreation of the legendary Fairchild compressor, which sounds incredible and weighs in at a fraction of the cost of an original unit. Continue reading →
  2. Comparing A Vintage Fairchild 670 To The UnderTone Audio UnFairchild 670M

    Comparing A Vintage Fairchild 670 To The UnderTone Audio UnFairchild 670M
    The Fairchild 660 and 670 vintage compressors are the most sought after and coveted compressors of all time. They have been the top choice for tracking and mix engineers for over five decades because of the signature glow and warmth they add to whatever source you run through them, even if no compression is actually happening. They have been the choice compressor for The Beatles, Pink Floyd, classic Motown records and many more. Loaded with 20 tubes, 14 transformers and miles of wiring, it’s no wonder that the Fairchild has a sound that has been unmatched… Until now. UnderTone Audio is a pro audio company run by recording guru Eric Valentine. Valentine has been making records for over 25 years and worked with many of today’s top artists. He has used pretty much every piece of gear on the planet and knows how to create gear that caters to the modern tracking and mix engineer. Engineers such as Greg Wells swear by Valentine’s designs, as Wells traded in his vintage Neve console for one of UnderTone Audio’s custom recording consoles. Continue reading →
