Preamp / Outboard Processing

Thermionic Culture LTD.

Thermionic Culture was founded in the UK in 1998 to manufacture, promote and sell ex Chart topping Recording Engineer Vic Keary's all valve studio equipment designs. These designs have been repeatedly lauded by the music press and users as 'innovative and groundbreaking’, some have won prestigious awards, and they often have a quirky and unique twist of their own. Tubes have less inherent distortion than transistors etc. and very low noise, so sound very natural in well designed circuits, especially with excellent audio transformers as required. Some circuits have unbalanced 'single ended' outputs which give a really open sound, but when Tubes are deliberately overloaded, for effect, they give a very warm sounding harmonic distortion. Thermionic Culture are used in several High End Recording and Mastering studios and is internationally acclaimed for Naturality, Warmth and Reliability across the spectrum of equipment such as Mic.Amps, Enhancers, Summing Mixers. All made in England to the highest standards much of the equipment being hand point-to point wired in the traditional way.

The Crane Song story started in 1995 when Dave Hill - electronics and professional audio wizard - decided to bring his expertise to a new focus. One of the company's earliest designs was the STC-8 compressor and peak limiter, still popular today for its ability to emulate vintage compressors, as well as sculpt new tones all its own. In all, Crane Song offers a potent lineup of single- and multi-channel compressors, a digital signal processor, 8-channel microphone preamplifier and A/D converter, along with an excellent stereo monitor controller. Studios can also enjoy Crane Song's processing wisdom via the TDM plug-in bundle, Phoenix.
