The heart of a digital recording rig is the A/D or D/A converter. An audio converter is what converts the signal from the analog source of a microphone into a digital representation that we can manipulate inside our favorite DAW. It then transfers that digital signal back into analog so you can hear it through your studio monitors, assign it to outboard dynamic processing, or send it to be mixed on an analog desk. The quality of your converter can make or break the sound of your recordings and mixes, so make sure you pair the converter for the quality of music you are looking to produce. With a wide variety of options available, choose from smaller two channel converters like the Audient iD22, Burl BS Bomber, or Crane Song HEDD 192. For a larger rig, look into options like the Antelope Audio Orion 32 HD, Universal Audio 16 MKII, Avid HD I/O, Burl Audio M80 Mothership, or Focusrite RedNet2, which offer expandable I/O to fit the largest recording rigs.

When expanding your system past one converter, make sure to pair your recording rig with a quality clocking system. A clock will speak to all connected devices, and make sure they are all in sync while recording. Models like the Avid Sync HD, Black Lion Audio Micro Clock MKIII, Antelope Audio Eclipse 384, and Benchmark DAC2 are a great choice when expanding your studio.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

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.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

Thank you so much! Vintage King has been so fair and easy to work with. I can't thank you enough. It feels good to trust such a hefty purchase to folks who are so helpful and knowledgeable. Vintage King is a sound designers dream store.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
