The NEW BRICK2 is here; ONLY A COUPLE LEFT AT THE INTRODUCTORY PRICE!
The BRICK2 makes use of more up-to-date technology in the manufacturing of the main printed circuit board, than the original BRICK (and it's a lot prettier!), but it is still totally hand built in the UK and individually tested and signed off by me.
The price of the BRICK2 is £920 but I'm selling the first batch as a ‘special’ as this is a first 'outboard' product of mine for some years so the introductory price is £595 for the first ten units. Most of these are now sold (3rd July). I have just a couple left! Have a look at the 'SHOP' page!
As a reminder, the BRICK2 is a totally analogue recording channel suitable for any single microphone, but particularly excellent for voice recording. It is a superlative microphone amplifier suitable for all mic types including ribbon, a photo-optical compressor of historic design, a harmonic enhancer that can operate also as a de-esser and dual analogue outputs.
But after all that..... there will be compression!!
P38EX Stereo Mastering Compressor was a stereo 'opto' compressor solidly made in the UK. Affordable by the smaller studio, but with full mastering performance instantly recognisable as superior to any regular compressors. Still lots of interest.... I'm working on a plan to produce a replacement with some original improvements!
The forums are full of comments and questions from engineers asking why their recordings don’t sound ‘right’ when they are following the directions and using the right gear. Why does an apple pie from a supermarket not taste anything like as good as one that grandmother made? The answers are remarkably similar! The supermarket pie has ‘uniformity’ processed into it; the ingredients may be pure and wholesome, but they are bland and ‘safe’. There are additives to preserve and packaging to enhance, the final result is pale and uninteresting. Digital equipment is designed by engineers who firmly believe that the ‘quality’ of a sound can be defined and measured, but great engineers know that there is much more to sound than that!
