Undertone Audio In Stock at Awave

There are a few limitations of the original Fairchild that we set out to address. First, we have made careful adjustments to the circuitry that greatly improve the lifespan and reliability of the tubes. Additionally, we’ve added a whole host of exciting new features that have never before been available on a Fairchild. The UnFairchild sports 6 original preset Time Constants and 4 variable Time Constants (attack and release), MS function, side chain processing, a true bypass, fine adjustment of left/right balance, user adjustable “DC Threshold”, and “Feed-Back” vs. “Feed-Forward” functionality. With the UnFairchild, we’ve made this extraordinary circuit flexible enough to handle pretty much every compression task on any style of music.

The mpressor 500 Receives the TEC Award!

The mpressor 500 Receives the TEC Award!

We are super excited to announce that elysia has just won the TEC Award. It’s the mpressor 500 which actually made it in the category Signal Processing Hardware (500 Series Modules).
We are so honored by this, and we would like to take the opportunity to thank all of our friends and customers for your amazing support during the last 12 years.

Watch this video to get some ideas on how to use the mpressor 500 on all kinds of different sources, and learn how to benefit from its great number of truly useful special features. Plus, there are tons of sound samples available in our SoundCloud channel.

And here is the mpressor 500‘s big brother and ancestor, the mpressor rack. Most of the creative and innovative features of this monster of a compressor have actually found their way into the module as well. This video is all about the origin.

For those who like to work hybrid or in the DAW exclusively, the mpressor is also available as a plugin. The amazing emulation has been created in cooperation with Brainworx, and it’s available for all major platforms including UAD.
Check it out here!

Why do we call the mpressor “the compressor from the future“? It was actually NYC producer Joel Hamilton who awarded this title to the rack version. In this video, Joel explains what he likes about the concept and the special features of one of his most favorite compressors. Enjoy!

Black Lion Audio Patchbay Rack 8


Black Lion Audio Patchbay Rack 8

Our industry has seen the explosion of 500 series products in recent years and with it, an equal number of 500 series power supplies.  This format excels in its potential for quickly dialing in sounds, however, has been greatly limited by the lack of flexible routing options without the use of expensive external patchbays and wiring harnesses. The portability and compactness of has always been balanced out with the need for bulky, full 19” rack mountable patch bays. The ability to use a 500 Series setup in a live performance has been hampered by the need to carry around heavy snakes and have access to the back panel on stage, with no easy solution for linking modules in separate racks.

We at Black Lion Audio have never settled for industry convention or what is considered “good enough.”  Instead, as always, we have approached this problem with the goal of delivering functionality and performance never before available.  Enter the Patchbay Rack 8!  Equipped with a fully balanced TT/Bantam patchbay, the PBR-8 has unlimited routing options for quickly dialing in sounds that don’t require modules to be loaded in any particular order.  Easily try out a signal chain, re-route it, split it using one of the built-in “Mults”, send it to modules in another rack, route it back, then send it out, all from the front panel!

Providing a stable and reliable power supply has been long been one of the issues dogging this format.  To solve this issue, the PBR-8 features OST (On Slot Technology) developed in Europe by Heritage Audio.  This technology allows us to take advantage of individual regulation per channel, insuring that noise, power issues or crosstalk of one module do not effect other modules. The hefty power supply provides 400mA per rail per slot maximum, with an overall of 1.6A (1.8A non continuous) per rail, whichever is reached first.  Coupled with the patchbay, this OST not only makes the PBR-8 one of the quietest and most reliable 500 series power supplies, but without the most functional and flexible ever built.

Available End of Q1 / Early Q2.

In The Spotlight: CLASSIC Legendary Sound of Black Lion

In The Spotlight: CLASSIC Legendary Sound of Black Lion

Black Lion Audio B173 Mic Pre

The B173 is Black Lion Audio’s homage to the highly revered Neve 1073 mic pre. The B173 is a single channel mic pre-amp with input and output transformers, stepped gain, output level control, phantom power, and phase. It features a DI, 80dB of gain, and is housed in a 1U, 1/2 rack chassis.


Black Lion Audio B12A MkII Mic Pre

Inspired by the classic American rock sound of the original API 312A, the B12A MkII delivers the high-end sound and rugged quality you’d expect from B.L.A., at an amazing price! The B12A MkII is a single-channel microphone preamp in the style of an API 312A, and features an upgraded input transformer, higher gain, and lower noise than the original B12A. It also features an output transformer, a Hi-Z input, phantom power, pad, phase, and is housed in a 1U, 1/2 rack chassis.


Black Lion Audio Micro Clock MkIII

The Micro Clock MkIII is a significant redesign of its predecessor, the Micro Clock MkII. Core technological improvements include lower-jitter crystal oscillators, higher-quality galvanic transformer isolation in the signal path, dedicated output drivers with better isolation, higher-precision signal division, and much heavier noise filtration throughout the circuit. All of this results in a more robust, lower-jitter clock signal than the Micro Clock MkII, with even more desirable harmonics in the clock’s spectral band that impart an undeniable musical quality to the conversion process. The feature set has expanded to include an LED frequency display, six BNC outputs capable of up to 384kHz, AES and RCA S/PDIF outputs capable of up to 192kHz, an optical S/PDIF output capable of up to 96kHz, and removable 1U rack ears.
