NEW FROM TFPRO.... BRICK2
The BRICK2 will be available on MONDAY 28th MAY 2018!
Production has been going well and the first production prototypes are sounding just as good as the two test models that I have had running for a whole year.
The BRICK2 (previously called the TDC) makes use of more up-to-date technology in the manufacturing of the main printed circuit board, than the original BRICK, 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 plus VAT but I'm going to sell the first batch as a ‘special’ as this is a first 'outboard' product of mine for some years so I’m making the introductory price £595 plus VAT for the first ten units.
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.
As with best quality professional equipment I offer a ‘trial period’ of 28 days, money back and my usual (now famous?) lifetime guarantee.
For more information I’m happy to email a copy of the draft handbook; email me at email@example.com
But after all that..... there are still compressors!!
P38EX Stereo Mastering Compressor is a stereo 'opto' compressor solidly made in the UK. It is still 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 some more.
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!
The TFPRO P38 range…., definitive optical compressors; compressors that brings out mood and feeling. The TFPRO P9….. Ted’s definitive equaliser; it brings warmth and life. The TFPRO M16….. Fine mic amps and mixing, a formidable combination; redesigned 16X version now available.NOTE, this website is now much more a 'resource' than a sales window. Ted still manufactures the odd compressor for those who insist! The range of TFPRO equipment was the result of a new look at the performance and design requirements of the 21st century record producer; a way of using the great tools and techniques of the past, and maintain the standards that are essential today. The range carries on and now extends with a new generation of Orbitsound labelled professional hardware starting with the microphone channel... the TDC.
