  • Fresh Listen: Tube-Tech CL 1B

     
    Since it first made its debut in 1987, the Tube-Tech CL 1B has become a modern studio classic. Why is this compressor what engineers and producers often patch in for their sessions? The optical tube compressor offers up smooth, butter-like compression that is practical and doesn't feature the harshness that can be associated with some other compressors.

    In particular, the Tube-Tech CL 1B has become synonymous with being the go-to compressor on vocals in the pop and hip-hop music communities. The compressor is known to have been a mainstay on vocal sessions for Kanye West, Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez and plenty more chart-topping hitmakers. Continue reading

  • Vintage King Presents: Silent Knife

    It's Halloween time and at Vintage King we've been getting in the spirit by binging on our favorite horror movies, both new and old. Whether it be the lush beauty of Mandy, the stark realism of the latest Halloween or the bonkers nature of every Friday The 13th sequel, we got inspired to create something of our very own.

    In our new short, Silent Knife, we posit the question, "What happens when a serial slasher's knife goes quiet?" Not "quiet" as in the killer goes dormant, but "quiet" in the sense that things just aren't quite the way they used to be. There's just that little something missing. Continue reading

  • New AEA KU5A Reimagines BK-5 With Supercardioid Pattern

    The new AEA KU5A serves as a reminder that the brand has always been known for creating incredible ribbon microphones. Once again, inspiration comes in the form of a classic RCA mic, but this time, AEA is giving their new microphone a sonic quality all its own.

    For the KU5A, AEA looked to the form factor of the RCA BK-5. The end-address design microphone was originally released in the mid-1950s and was primarily used at TV and radio stations. The microphone has been a recording studio staple in the decades since, as its lightweight body and uniaxial design enables users to have a more directional focus on the sound source.

    We were fortunate enough to have Solid State Logic's Fadi Hayek recently stop by the Vintage King studio room and give us a walkthrough of the Fusion's features. Watch our new video below to hear all five of the Fusion's coloring tools at work and gain more insight into the unit. Continue reading

  • Using Chandler Limited's EMI REDD Microphone On Vocals, Drums And More

    The microphone innovations created under the roof at EMI are many of the same principles and techniques that we still apply in the recording studio today. Alan Blumlein, anyone? With the release of their REDD Microphone, Wade Goeke and the Chandler Limited crew are putting EMI microphones on the map once again.

    For the first microphone to be badged with the EMI logo in 50 years, Chandler Limited teamed up with engineers at Abbey Roads Studios. The resulting EMI REDD Microphone is a large diaphragm tube condenser mic that features a vacuum tube based REDD.47 Mic Amplifier circuit directly coupled to a custom handmade premium platinum membrane capsule.
