Antelope Audio has added four vintage compressors to its library of FPGA vintage hardware-based effects – the BA-6A, FET-A78, SMT-100A and Grove Hill Liverpool.

BA-6AThe company specialises in Thunderbolt and HDX models of sought-after vintage effects, offering with real-time performance without DSP native processing on its Thunderbolt and HDX audio interfaces – the Orion Studio HD, Goliath HD, Orion Studio Rev. 2017, Orion32 HD, Zen Studio+, Orion Studio, Goliath, Orion32+ and Zen Tour.

The all-new BA-6A follows the Fifties-vintage limiting amplifier design – a hardware unit originally created for television and radio broadcasting, but which became a favourite with recording engineers. Generating three-stage amplification with a moderate drive, hard knee compression, fast attack and medium release, the BA-6A has a brings vintage sound to the present-day production table.

Historically, the FET-A78 was used on innumerable pop and rock recordings, while the classic SMT-100A is suited to use on vocals, drums and punchy bass, the original unit having been around for more than 30 years. Antelope Audio has worked hard to preserve the sound of both in the FPGA domain – emulating the smooth sound of vacuum tubes.

Grove Hill Liverpool is a contemporary fusion of American and British compression technologies, with origins in the 1960s. Rotary knobs for controlling Input gain, Threshold, Attack time, Recovery time and Output Attenuator (dB).

The BA-6A, FET-A78 and SMT-100A are already available for the Orion 32HD, Goliath HD, Orion Studio Rev. 2017, Orion Studio and Orion Studio HD interfaces, with Goliath, Orion 32+, Zen Tour, and Zen Studio+ to follow, while the Grove Hill Liverpool is already available for Antelope Audio’s HDX audio interfaces – Orion Studio HD, Orion 32HD, and Goliath HD.
