From classic recording consoles and microphones to the latest in control surfaces and studio monitors, Vintage King has the perfect recording equipment to outfit any studio. No matter your size or budget constraints, we can help you achieve the audio that you've been dreaming of.
Start your journey with the right microphone. This is a key tool for capturing any sort of acoustic-based instrument. There is a wide variety of microphones (condenser, dynamic, ribbon, pzm), each with its own benefits for capturing specific instruments. Brands like Townsend Labs, Antelope Audio and Slate Digital even create modeling microphones that utilize digital emulations of classic mics.
For analog purists, it doesn't get any better than recording consoles and outboard gear. Leading manufacturers like API Audio, Solid State Logic and Neve have been creating analog consoles for decades. The basic elements of consoles, including mic pres, EQs and compressors have been recreated in many other formats including desktop, rackmount and 500 Series. This makes finding the right gear at any level an easy task.
Some engineers prefer a streamlined digital workflow, which means building a rig with audio interfaces and control surfaces. Audio interfaces offer music makers a number of inputs and outputs to capture sound sources in the studio. Once the audio has been captured, an engineer can use a control surface to gain tactile control over editing and mixing audio within the DAW of their choice.
One of the most important aspects of working in the studio is monitoring. In order to ensure their audio will sound good on a number of different systems, engineers will employ a number of different monitors, headphones and even car stereos to check their mixes. Vintage King has studio equipment like monitors and headphones of all different shapes and sizes from brands like Barefoot Sound, Focal, ATC Loudspeakers and Genelec.
