Variable Mix Bus
By utilising an american style output amplifier, classic through hole components and a British output transformer we bring you RETRO IRON, a variable output mix bus with LOW BUMP and HIGH LIFT EQ. Based upon two consoles from David’s first job in 1967 at the now legendary Advision Studios in London, RETRO IRON adds punch and ‘vibe’ to the consoles mix output. So whether your simply tracking, summing a few inputs or crafting a fully blown console mix RETRO IRON offers you that unique analogue console sound with a little bit of extra character that will put the final touch on any mix.
Splitable Four Band EQ
The incredibly flexible, Dearden designed EQ offers two fully parametric bands that span from 40Hz to 20kHz, offering a powerful and punchy sound. These are flanked by low and high shelving EQ bands (with a minimal signal path) that are perfect for adding weight and air to your source and when combined with the parametric EQ, make for the ultimate sculpting tool. Don’t forget, you can really take advantage of the EQ as it can be split across both the short and long faders, making us one of the only companies to offer this unique feature.
The Mix Bus Compressor
Based on technology from the 80s and 90s the ASP8024’s mix bus compressor is known for adding a rock and roll dynamic to your mix. Often likened to classic analogue boards, the ASP8024’s mix bus compressor provides that classic VCA ‘glue’ that will give your mix that ‘sounds like a record’ feeling. With improved circuitry and a slick new gain reduction VU meter for improved visual feedback (if you’ve used the ‘gentle needle bounce glue trick’ before, you’ll know exactly what we mean) it will fast become one of the most useful tools in your arsenal!
It doesn’t stop there! Introducing BASS EXPAND, a brand new high pass filter in the compressors side chain. BASS EXPAND will tighten up your mixes and add punch without destroying your low end, making it an ideal tool for bass heavy productions. We may have just made the most versatile mix bus compressor in the industry…
With an impressive array of connectivity options the Audient ASP 8024 36PB Heritage Edition will quickly become the hub of your studio. Whether you’re bringing in your DAW outputs, effects returns, monitoring devices and other line sources, or simply connecting to your 2″ tape machine the Heritage Edition provides ultimate flexibility for the modern recording studio.
