Tonelux Universal Console – No Longer Available

Discrete recording console
MFR# Universal Console

Product Description

The Tonelux Universal Console can be configured for up to 96 channels, room for Eqs, Mic Pres, Compressors, Control Room Section, Returns, Masters, and the new ShadowMix Motorized Fader System that uses your DAW's automation to run them, but with the audio going through them into the Tonelux modules!!!

Tonelux provides a system that can do tracking, mixing, overdubs and most other production work with the broad line of modular products it manufactures. We have taken many of the oversimplified external systems and included many of the large format console features into a very high quality, affordable system of modules that can be combined or used individually. We have used both discrete and IC based amplifiers in the positions that they each work the best in. With two new discrete opamps, the Tonelux line sounds as sweet as possible, with most comments referring to it's "dimensional sound" and it's "clear high end and fat bottom".

The starting point is the flexible Tonelux multi-function powered rack. With one single rack model, you can intermix any of the modules in any quantity because the configuration of the rack is universal for all modules. With Paul Wolff's extensive experience with console designs, beginning with his many years spent customizing live sound consoles, studio consoles and working in both environments, building nearly 35 custom consoles, through his final design of the first discrete surround console, not forgetting the modular designs of some of the first OTB summing mixers, EQs, Mic Pres and Compressors that are still being sold as they were designed, Tonelux was the next logical step, quickly becoming the leader in modular, configurable production systems, with a complete ground up concept that doesn't use obsolete designs to make something that appears new. "With a dramatic new direction in the music industry, the way everything is done is being re-invented, and that requires a new direction in the way we design our tools."

"I started to see a change in the industry, and saw a need for a system that enhanced the way engineers, producers and musicians recorded their music. The DAW is here to stay, which many people and companies still regard as the 'studio killer'. Like any new invention, the DAW has changed the face of recording for ever, and with change, comes new opportunities, not always seen at first." It's like either being on the train or being on the tracks...

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.
Phil T.
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.

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.
