10 Series Racks: These racks include power supplies and phantom power for 10 series modules like the BAE 10 Series Modules. 1066, 1073, 1084, 1023, 1028 and the new 1032 will all fit perfectly in 10 Series racks. These particular 10 Series racks will also accommodate any vintage Neve modules you have.
500 Series Racks and Modules: The 500 Series Format has exploded over the past 8 years. The 500 series design itself has been around for a while but in the past 8 years many manufactures have stepped up their game in this format. A lot of manufactures are not only making modules but also are making 500 series rack systems to house the modules. In this section you will find 500 Series Racks, Modules and accessories.
500 Series Dynamics: Many 500 Series compressors are based on classic models, which have been redesigned to fit the 500 Series format. You can choose from a number of types, ranging from opto to VCA to FET models. Some compressors include sidechain capability. Many feature VU metering, despite the compact size of the units. All the controls you’d expect are present on these compressors: threshold, attack, release, makeup gain, and ratio. Almost all models are mono, but when stereo needs come about, you can just link two units together. Many offer de-essing capability.
500 Series Equalizers: While most 500 Series equalizers are parametric, you can also find graphic EQs that fit the chassis format. Parametric equalizers are the most widely used in situations where very fine control over the audio signal is desired. You’ll find mostly 3-band and 4-band parametric EQs in 500 Series formats. Many include low- and/or high-frequency shelving to handle cuts and boosts of signals above or below a specified frequency. In general, parametric EQs offer up to 12dB of boost and cut, which should handle just about any situation where EQ is desired.
500 Series Preamps: 500 Series preamps come in the form of tube modules, solid-state modules, modules that duplicate the circuitry in vintage units, and units tuned for special applications. Whatever type of mic preamp you want, it’s probably available in a 500 Series module. Most of these preamps provide 48V phantom power and include a hi-Z instrument input. You can choose between transformer or transformerless designs, and tube or solid-state models. Some 500 Series preamps add EQ and dynamics processing, becoming true channel strips.
500 Series Racks: All of those modules have to live somewhere, and that’s where the chassis (frame) or Lunchbox (an API trademark) comes in. The chassis has slots for two or more 500 Series modules. It provides not only a slot for the module to live in but also power for the module, as well as inputs and outputs for getting signal in and out of the module. Some chassis are tabletop units, while others mount into racks. They range in size from 2-slot (which can hold two single-width modules or one double-width module) to 10-slot, which can hold up to 10 single-width modules or a mix of single- and double-width modules.
Recording Accessories: Just like the name, you will find all the extra bells and whistles you might need to fill in the blanks of your studio. From Pop Filters, Studio Racks and Balanced power conditioning. Everything you need to connect the dots.
Acoustic Treatment: One of the most important investments you can make in your studio is acoustic treatment. I can almost say it is more important than a new microphone, preamp or even before you invests heavily into other gear. You will find everything you need to flatten and balance out your control and live room in this sections. Everything from Diffusors, Absorbers, Ceiling Tiles and way more...
AD/DA Converters: AD/DA Converters is a device that converts a continuous physical quantity (usually voltage) to a digital number that represents the quantity's amplitude. Simply put: changes analog voltage to ones and zeros. Converters can be just A/D (Analog to Digital), D/A (Digital to Analog) and both. They can also range from a minimum of 2 Channels up to 16 Channels in most cases.

Channel Strips: A channel strip is comprised of a number of signal processing tools including a preamp, usually followed by a compressor, an EQ section, and in some cases a de-esser or an enhancer (exciter). If you’re recording vocals, for example, this gives you every processing tool you need for professional vocal recording in one convenient and cost-effective unit. Since all the electronics are housed inside the same box (as opposed to being patched from separate preamp to compressor to EQ, etc), the chances for noise are diminished.

Compressors / Limiters: A compressor is a device that reduces the dynamic range of program material. This is useful in the case of vocals or an instrument that changes from low levels to very high levels. Reducing the dynamic range causes the high levels to be reduced, which prevents distortion and makes it easier for you to set optimum levels. Properly applied compression allows an instrument or vocal to “sit” better in the mix and allows for louder average levels and punchier-sounding mixes. A limiter stops the output of a signal path from exceeding a predetermined level.

Dual-Channel Preamps: Single Channel PreampsPreamps are offered in single-, dual-, or multi-channel configurations. A two-channel preamp is obviously desirable for stereo miking techniques. A single-space rackmount unit with eight preamps will offer you major space savings and generally, big bang for the buck, letting you track a complete drum kit, for instance, or plug in an entire instrument-level hardware synth rig. Do you do remote recordings? Multi-channel preamps are also ideal for mobile recording rigs.
Dynamic Microphones: In a dynamic microphone, the audio signal is generated by the motion of a conductor within a magnetic field. In most dynamic mics, a very thin, lightweight diaphragm moves in response to sound pressure. The diaphragm’s motion causes a voice coil suspended in a magnetic field to move, generating a small electric current. Dynamic mics are less sensitive (to sound pressure levels and high frequencies) than condenser mics, and generally can take more punishment. They also tend to be less expensive. Dynamics are perfect for drums and electric guitars. The most popular snare mic of all time is the Shure SM57 (also great on guitar amps). Many engineers swear by the Sennheiser MD421 on toms.
Dynaudio was founded in Denmark in 1977 with a focus on creating the ultimate Hi-fi speakers.

Large Diaphragm Condensers: When it’s absolute fidelity to the source you’re after, reach for a condenser microphone. Condensers are more responsive to the “speed” and nuances of sound waves than dynamic mics. This simple mechanical system consists of a thin stretched conductive diaphragm placed close to a metal disk (backplate). This arrangement creates a capacitor which is given its electric charge by an external voltage source – a battery or dedicated power supply, or phantom power supplied by your mixer. The diaphragm vibrates slightly in response to sound pressure, causing the capacitance to vary and producing a voltage variation – the signal output of the microphone. Condenser mics come in both solid-state and tube variations and a wide variety of shapes and sizes – but they all function according to these principles.

Plug-ins: Audio plug-in effects are a staple of every music production system, and reproduce the functionality of traditional, hardware-based effect units. The term ‘effects’ can bring to mind weird and wonderful sounds, but effects can also be much more subtle sound processors like compressors, EQs or even gating plug-ins. You could think of an effect as anything that changes a sound, regardless of the way in which it does it.
Pop Filters / Windscreens: A pop filter or pop shield is an anti-pop noise protection filter for microphones, typically used in for vocal recordings. It serves to reduce or eliminate 'popping' sounds caused by the mechanical impact of fast moving air on the microphone during recorded speech and singing.

Reverbs / Delays: After equalization and compression, the most frequent effects sound engineers rely on is reverb and delays. Hardware Reverbs and Delays are becoming less common these days due to the availability of software plug-ins. This section contains hardware reverb /delay effects processors. But the hardware units in this section have more than just reverbs / delays. Most of them are bonafide multi-effects processors giving you a nice selection of effects beyond just reverbs / delays
Ribbon Microphones: Used extensively in the golden age of radio, Ribbon mics were the first commercially successful directional microphones. Ribbon mics respond to the velocity of air molecules moving a small element suspended in a strong magnetic field, rather than sound pressure level (SPL), which is what “excites” most other microphone types. In studio applications this functional difference isn’t important, although it can be critical during an exterior location recording on a windy day. Vintage ribbons such as the RCA 44 and Coles 4038 were notoriously delicate; today’s ribbon mics are designed to handle the rigors of daily studio use

Small Diaphragm Condensers: When it’s absolute fidelity to the source you’re after, reach for a condenser microphone. Condensers are more responsive to the “speed” and nuances of sound waves than dynamic mics. This simple mechanical system consists of a thin stretched conductive diaphragm placed close to a metal disk (backplate). This arrangement creates a capacitor which is given its electric charge by an external voltage source – a battery or dedicated power supply, or phantom power supplied by your mixer. The diaphragm vibrates slightly in response to sound pressure, causing the capacitance to vary and producing a voltage variation – the signal output of the microphone. Condenser mics come in both solid-state and tube variations and a wide variety of shapes and sizes – but they all function according to these principles.

Studio Monitor Stands: Need a secure, stable, commercial grade stand to hold your studio monitors. The stand on which your studio monitors sit on can be argued as just as important as your studio monitors themselves. Not only are stands supporting the weight and stability of your speakers but they can also have a significant acoustic impact on how your studio monitors sound.
Studio Monitors: You will find Passive,Active Studio Monitors and even subwoofers in this section. A good set of studio monitors is key to any set up. And finding the right pair or single (mono) can be a tough decision. It is based off of your room (acoustics, size etc...) and the type of music content you are primarily recording and mixing. Maybe you need a subwoofer or maybe a set of full-range monitors will do the trick. I am here to help you narrow down that decision.
