BAE are manufactures of high end microphone preamp/equalizers faithful to vintage designs of the seventies and before. With a penchant for high quality transformers like Carnhill (St lves) and Jensen, everything is as close to the vintage philosophy as possible. Not only that but they insist everything is hand-wired/soldered using discreet electronics and not economized on a circuit board.
The UK Sound 276 Stereo Compressor is a dual version of their 176 compressor, a modern take on the classic 1176 style compressor. Now you can add a high-quality stereo compressor to the rack without breaking the bank.
The Input control adjusts incoming levels from the preamp, working similarly to the threshold on a standard compressor. Choose between four Ratio settings, 4:1, 8:1, 12:1 and 20:1. Flipping the “!” switch will engage the “all buttons in” setting found on classic 1176 style compressors, the perfect tool for adding layers of depth and excitement to any source. Use the Output dial to send the perfect level to you DAW or Tape Machine.

Lancaster Audio engineers industry leading music production software. Our guitar cabinet impulse responses and Kemper amp profiles have received critical acclaim and are featured in the studios and on the stages of top producers and recording artists worldwide.
What is an Impulse Response (IR)?
An IR is a snapshot of a speaker cabinet’s linear characteristics. For speaker cabs, this means frequency, edge response, and phase response. In even simpler terms, an IR you download from our website is a speaker cabinet emulation that is inserted in your signal chain after your amp simulator.
Lancaster Audio is giving away 3 IR Everything Bundles! ($1340 each) Literally all of their IRs! Including Producer Packs!
The V7‘s road-ready design is all metal – no plastic parts here. The chassis’ high quality, highly durable zinc alloy is designed to hold up under on-stage stress for years, and the spring steel mesh grille is dent-proof and corrosion-free for perfect reliability.
Also, see that beveled edge around the grille? That prevents your mic from rolling around when you put it down on top of your amp or the stage floor. (It’s the little things that count.)
The V7′s gold-plated XLR connector also ensures a loss-free and reliable signal connection for years to come.

MasterCheck is the complete optimisation solution for today’s delivery services, a plug-in providing the tools to make sure your music reaches the listener as intended. Streaming apps, download stores and podcasts all use data compression, loudness normalisation or both. These processes can affect your track in undesirable ways: your loud, punchy mix could end up quiet and flat, or suffer clipping and distortion.
MasterCheck reveals these problems ahead of time, and enables you to deliver masters perfectly tuned for specific playout systems.
MasterCheck demonstrates the effects of loudness normalisation so you can find the sweet spot between perceived loudness and dynamics, and allows you to hear artefacts introduced by the encoding process ahead of time. You can quickly find the point where these processes will start to negatively impact the music, putting you back in control.
Nugen is giving away a copy of Mastercheck Pro! ($149)

Soundtheory emerged in 2016 after nearly 14 years of fundamental research. For more than a decade, they have worked on an alternative approach to signal processing inspired by quantum theory and mathematical methods such as non-commutative algebra, differential geometry, and information theory. Sound, theory.
They discovered deep insights into how the human brain processes sound. This research spiraled into the development of new and unique methods for realtime audio processing. They are particularly proud of our highly advanced human auditory perception model which allows us to analyze sound the same way a human would perceive it.
Gullfoss is an easy-to-use tool for everyone from the amateur musician to the professional mastering engineer. Its clean user interface offers a set of basic parameters that can be adjusted to improve the clarity, detail, spatiality, and balance of a mix or recording in a matter of seconds.
