For those who couldn't make it to the 2011 AES Convention last month in New York City, we have a special treat for YOU! EARS and co-sponsor Vintage King will host a showcase of select products that were featured at the AES show. Chicago's local Vintage King Rep and fellow EARS member Jeff Leibovich will be on hand to help out and answer any questions about the gear. We invite you to bring a hard drive with your own multi-tracks and come twist some knobs and bang the board at this fun and informative event.

The Doublewide is a tube compressor module designed from the ground up for the 500 Series. It's authentic Retro compression for the masses.

ShadowHills_Mastering_Compressor
Shadow Hills Mastering Compressor
The Shadow Hills Mastering Compressor has extraordinary functionality, and also provides mastering grade compression and limiting for tracking and mixing. Essentially it is two compressors in series, per channel, that can act in stereo, or dual mono. First comes our mastering grade electro-optical compressor, followed by our discrete Class-A compressor/limiter. Both feed our switchable custom output transformers, Nickel, Iron, and Steel. There is enough gain in each section to overdrive the hottest tape, or clip your converters, if you're into that sort of thing.
