Anamod  ATS-1
App 514-721-1518   
The ATS-Analog Tape Simulator is the first product that uses the AnaMod process for modeling complex analog circuitry entirely in the analog domain. Specially developed analog building blocks are 'coded' to emulate the behavior of a complex analog system. Unlike digital plug-ins or processor-based outboard gear, there is no latency, and no A/D or D/A conversions to compromise the sound. The result is a faithful recreation of the original response, without using the original analog hardware.

Empirical Labs  EL8X Distressor
1884.28$ CAD   
The original concept of the "British Mode" came from an unusual setting on the classic UREI LN1176 limiter. The unit was designed to have only four ratios, each ratio being engaged by selecting one of four buttons. However, as early as 1980 (or before), renegade recording engineers, always on the lookout for something a little more "over the top", found that you could make all four buttons stay "in" if you pressed them just right. What resulted was a very, very aggressive sound that had some elements of the units 20:1 ratio, but with an unusual knee and new envelope shape. Somewhere along the line, someone called it a "British Mode" and the name has stuck. It is also called "all buttons in" and some other intuitive names.
Empirical Labs  EL8XS Distressor Stereo Pair
3644.11$ CAD   
Unlike most analog compressor/limiters the Distressor is a digitally controlled audio device and actually incorporates several products into one by utilizing digital controls to switch totally different circuits in and out. Years of beta testing and redesign went into the Distressor as will be the case with all Empirical Labs products.
Manley  Variable-Mu   (MSLCHP)
5230.00$ CAD   
It is one of the very few compressors that has become a real standard in Mastering studios and contributed to most hit records over the last decade and probably the next. "Mu" is tube-speak for gain, and Variable Mu? is our registered trademark for this limiter compressor. It works by using the "remote cut-off" or re-biasing of a vacuum tube to achieve compression. The precious vintage Fairchild 670 also uses this technique and is one of few all-tube compressor to do so, that we know of. Even the side-chain has glowing rectifier bottles.

Millennia  NSEQ-2
5209.10$ CAD   
Using the Millennia NSEQ-2 has made me completely re-think how I use EQ. Where I used to avoid using EQ at all, the NSEQ-2 has been employed to put just the right touch in a recording. The NSEQ- 2’s transparency and musicality is stunning! I don’t know of an EQ, digital or analog, that could approach its qualities.”

App 514-721-1518   
The MLA-2 is a stereo or 2-channel compressor with stepped drive (input gain), ratio, attack and release time and output gain controls. For optimum transparency and freedom from noise the MLA-2 employs a non-VCA design.
Rupert Neve Designs  Portico 5045
2450.00$ CAD   
The 5045 Primary Source Enhancer is a two channel device that is exceptionally useful at reducing feedback, effectively increasing the level a microphone can be raised before feedback occurs in a live sound environment by up to 20dB, without negatively impacting the sonic integrity of the source signal. With controls that are very simply laid out and generally require minimal adjustment, the 5045 is an invaluable tool for churches, stadiums, performance halls, or any venue where feedback is problematic.

The 5045 shares some traits with conventional "noise gates", but operates with a different principle. One common aspect is that both reduce the gain during the absence of signal - or more specifically, both begin to attenuate when the level of a signal falls below a certain user-de...

5250.00$ CAD   
Based around the high voltage, discrete and class-A signal paths made famous in the 5088 Mixer and the Portico II: Channel, the Portico II Master Buss Processor is creative tool that redefines the boundaries and limitations of traditional 2-channel compression and limiting.
With input and output transformers designed and implemented by Mr. Rupert Neve, the high-voltage 72V topology found in the Master Buss Processor (MBP) will integrate flawlessly with virtually any system. Additionally, the MBP incorporates mastering grade detented pots throughout to fine tune its revolutionary dynamics, tone, and stereo field controls. This new topology is a significant evolution of Mr Rupert Neve's classic designs with appreciable benefits to headroom, dynamic range, distortion, noise, slew rate, b...
SPL  IRON Mastering Compressor
8499.00$ CAD   
The IRON mastering compressor is not a copy of a classic unit, but rather an original concept in itself. Our goal was to conceive a compressor that provided a pleasant, melodic-sounding, transparent compression, inspired on the vintage compressors of the radio era. And we wanted it to be versatile enough to adapt perfectly to the needs of modern mastering studios.

Thus, the IRON combines not only the sonic virtues of legendary vintage tube compressors with the advantages of the High Dynamic 120 V operating voltage in a single unit. It also sets a new benchmark in terms of tube compressor technology, with the innovative implementation of a parallel dual-tube circuit.

SPL  PQ Mastering Equalizer
9999.00$ CAD   
The PQ Mastering Equalizer is a fully parametric, dual-channel five-band equalizer.

The PQ Mastering Equalizer ? Model 1540/1544 is a new revised edition of the well-known SPL PQ Mastering Equalizer ? Model 2050.

Both units are based on our 120V Rail Technology. The new PQ features the same high-quality characteristics as the previous model.

All five bands can each be activated or deactivated and you got the possibility (for every single band) to separately switch between Constant Q and Proportional Q. This kind of circuit has not yet been achieved in any other equalizer.

Each channel can completely be activated or deactivated, thanks to Auto-Bypass, even automated in a freely selectable time frame.

TK Audio  BC2-ME (Rev2) Mastering Compressor
2764.19$ CAD   
"The Magic Glue"

TK Audio's vision is to make products that will satisfy our customers needs. During years of success with our BC1 we got a lot of requests of customize units with stepped controls, more suitable for mastering. Therefore we now launch BC2-ME, a unit perfect for mastering. Except for the stepped controls we also added some nice features like illuminated switches, switchable output-stage between electronically-balanced or transformer balanced class-A.
BC2-ME uses the same basic sound path as the BC1, plus the extra features. The class-A mode offers a more vintage tone, like fat, punchy low-end response with more low mid character. The output section is the same as we use in the DP1mk3. BC2-ME also has a switch that adds extra "even" harmonics to the compressed si...
TK Audio  TK-lizer Mastering EQ with M/S func...
2185.96$ CAD   
"Fine tuning EQ - all the way from the lows to the highs"

Our new TK-lizer is a Baxandall type of EQ, high and low bands are selectable between shelving or bell, very useful for fine tuning of your low's, mid's and high's.
The EQ also has a built in M/S function which lets you process the mid and side signals separately.
You can also affect the stereo width of your music by using the level controls in M/S mode.
The three bands are based on the legendary Baxandall circuit from the 50's.

We like to thank Wayne Kirkwood at KA Electronics for letting us use his genius M/S circuit!!
