Isp Technologies Decimator Prorack G Noise  ...Isp Technologies – Isp Technologies Decimator Prorack G Noise Reduction System
The Decimator ProRackG guitar noise reduction system establishes a new standard for excellence in real time noise suppression performance. The Decimator ProRackG was designed to provide the maximum possible performance in a rack mount dual channel noise reduction system designed specifically for extremely high gain guitar amplifiers. Designed with 2 channels of single ended noise reduction configured specifically for high gain guitar applications, it allows one channel to deliver noise reduction for the guitar directly and a second channel to eliminate amplifier gain noise. Channel one eliminates 50 or 60 cycle hum, buzz, stage light noise and any other noise picked up directly by the instrument. The ProRackG channel one output drives the front end of your guitar amplifier and eliminates all of the input noise picked up by the guitar. The control circuit of the second channel detects and tracks the guitar signal directly while the signal processing audio chain is patched into the effects loop of the high gain guitar amplifier. Now you can quiet down even the most insane amounts of noise with any amplifier system incorporating a series effects loop. The Decimator unit will also solve the typical high gain feedback or squealing problem high gain guitar players fight.You know how difficult this problem can be. You play staccato notes and in between each note you have a squeal or burst of feedback that’s virtually impossible to control. Problem solved with the Decimator ProRackG. By proper setting of the threshold for channel one and channel two you can eliminate this problem for good. The Decimator ProRackG has dual processing channels incorporating both low-level downward expansion and dynamically controlled low-pass filtering in a very easy to use single rack space unit. The ProRackG is based on ISP Technologies patent pending “Time Vector Processing,” which provides the most adaptively dynamic release response characteristics of any rea

Powered by an internal 9-volt battery or via phantom power at the XLR output, the Xdirect Active Direct Box from ART features a switchable low-pass filter that cuts out all very high-frequency interference. This Bessel filter on the output is placed out of the audio range and is primarily intended to reduce radio frequency interference before it gets into the main system. The filter also reduces computer noise artifacts when used as an interface between a computer-based audio workstation and monitors. Phase inversion switch reverses signal polarity at the source. The ART Xdirect has a stylish, compact, and durable chassis; input attenuator switches for a wide range of signal levels; and an input through jack for tapping off the signal chain. A ground lift switch lets you totally separate the input and output signal grounds, reducing hum and ground-loop noise.Internal 9-volt battery or phantom powerSwitchable low-pass filterPhase inversion switchStylish, compact, and durable chassisInput attenuator switchesInput through jackGround lift switch

In recording, there are certain things that you can only know through years of experience, such as which preamp works best on vocals, which one rules on guitar, or what preamp to use if you have a dark-sounding instrument or mic that needs some brightening. With A Designs Audio’s EM series preamps you can let the 60 years of combined experience and super tone-sensitive ears of Jon Erickson and Pete Montessi save you years trying eek secrets out of pro engineers and lurking on forums. Each preamp in the series is designed to handle specific recording chores with the remarkable sound quality that A Designs Audio is now famous for. (Read the buzz on the forums, you’ll find nothing but raves.) Best of all, you get high-quality audio in a space-saving and affordable package. Custom transformers, the key to a big punchy sound In solid-state preamp design, the key to a big punchy sound rests in the input and output transformers. (That’s where you get what is known as the “big iron” sound of the ’70s). To ensure top-quality sound, A Designs has their transformers custom-built by Tom Reichenbach of Cine-Mag, whose lineage extends back the days when his father Ed built transformers for Altec-Lansing in the ’40s. Not only are the transformer hand-made, they’re also “ear-made” by Jon (who spent years rebuilding vintage gear for LA studios), and Peter (longtime LA musician and preamp guru), who won’t okay a transformer design until they get exactly the sound they’re looking for. With the A Designs P1, you can put those ears and 60 years of combined experience to work for you and bring your recordings to new sonic heights.

D.W. Fearn Vt-7 Stereo  ...D.W. Fearn – D.W. Fearn Vt-7 Stereo Compressor
The D.W. Fearn VT-7 Stereo Compressor has an all Class-A vacuum tube audio path, like all Fearn audio products. The gain reduction elements utilize circuitry that duplicates the sound and characteristics of the finest classic vacuum tube compressors, without depending on tubes that are no longer manufactured. The control circuitry is modern solid-state analog. The two channels may be used independently or linked together for stereo. A built in sidechain high-pass filter may be selected to reduce the compression on bass-heavy material. Controls (each channel): Threshold Gain Attack Release Harder/Softer Separate/Link/Link HPF The VU meters may be switched between indicating gain reduction or output level. The VT-7 Compressor has a highly transparent sound, although it can be used more aggressively when needed. Artifacts of the compression process are substantially lower than in most other compressors. The two channels may be used independently, or linked for stereo. In addition, a third position on the Link switch inserts a high-pass filter (HPF) in the sidechain to reduce the gain-reduction sensitivity of the VT-7 to low frequencies. This is a gentle roll-off, nominally at 100Hz. This allows a bass-heavy mix to have a better frequency balance, and prevents heavy low-frequency audio from modulating the audio level. The VT-7 is equally adept in tracking as well as a bus compressor. Even jazz and classical tracks can be sent through the VT-7 for some mild gain control without obvious effect other than a significant improvement in the overall sound of the mix. Design PhilosophyLike all D.W. Fearn products, the VT-7 stereo compressor is a no-compromise design. From the quarter-inch thick front panel painted with the finest polyurethane finishes to the choice of all components and controls, the VT-7 is built to look as great as it sounds.

Daking Mic Pre One  ...Daking – Daking Mic Pre One 500
Daking Mic Pre One 500: Geoff Daking, a designer of audio gear in the tradition of the greats; Neve, API, and Trident, has turned his considerable expertise on both sides of the control-room glass into a premier line of preamps, compressors, and custom consoles used by engineers and producers the likes of Joe Chiccarelli and Butch Vig. His latest creation is the Mic Pre One 500, a modular 500-series* preamp based on his popular Mic Pre One. The Mic Pre One 500 features switchable phase, 20dB mic input pad, +48V phantom power, and a selectable 1/4″ line/Hi-Z instrument input.Like the Mic-Pre One, the Mic Pre 500 shares the gain structure and Class A, fully-discrete transistor circuitry design of Daking’s popular Mic Pre IV. The front panel controls include a variable high-pass filter (with a range of 10-200Hz @ 12db per octave) as well as continuously variable input gain. It also includes an eight-segment tri-color LED meter with simultaneous VU and Peak. In addition, because the home recordist faces challenges that the professional studio owner does not, the Mic-Pre One 500 features a powerful continuously variable high-pass filter with a range of 10-200Hz @ 12db per octaveThe Mic Pre One 500 gives you both the punchy and exciting sound of its prime inspiration, the Trident A Range console (considered to be the best sounding console for rock by Daking himself, and numerous platinum producers), and the convenience of a 500-series module, which gives you the ability to add more great Daking channels as your budget allows.*Note: In order to operate, 500-series units require a VPR**-compliant power suppy, or “lunchbox” such as the Radial Workhorse (#H74107), A Designs Audio 500HR Rackmount Frame (#241582), or Empirical Labs EL 500 (#H72812).** What is the VPR Alliance?Initiated by API Audio, the VPR Alliance is a program of standardization and consistency guidelines for manufacturers wishing to make product70dB gain8-segment, tri-color meter with VU and peak indicationsSwitchable polarity20dB pad with constant reflected impedanceSwitchable +48V phantom powerDirect 1/4″ instrument input on the front panel
