Customer review

 

Paul is the owner of VintageMaker -

 
 

- and one of the most passionate people we have ever done business with inside the small pro audio world.

 

Paul has an extensive knowledge of gear and has been making custom summing mixers to order for years. Paul offers options and customization that no other company (to our knowledge) offers. Not to mention the VintageMaker summing mixers can be made with both active and passive circuitry along with other flexible options which makes these summing mixers a no brain for any producer or audio engineer.

The VintageMaker products offer a very clean, 3d and transparent sound. The units are handcrafted with extreme care and are laser engraved. Overall, the VintageMaker units are damn classy looking units! These units do not just look pretty though, the sound dynamite! Separation, clarity, width, and so much more. What's not to love when it comes to taking an ITB mix and turning into that open and pristine analog console sound!

We have ordered a lot of gear online over the years from overseas companies, and no company did I better job with the packaging than VintageMaker. While it was a deep pleasure to receive a unit packed with such care in the mail, what really shines with Paul is that he is a highly communicative and enthusiastic engineer. For weeks we exchanged long-winded emails for designs and ideas about what we the best for our needs. Paul cut zero corners, and without input, created us a summing mixer that suited all our needs!

Whether you are in a bedroom studio looking to go outside the box, or a professional working in a million dollar hybrid studio with racks on analog gear, you should drop Paul a line and look into the myriad of options he can create for you. Everything from high channel counts, to subgroups, to high-end Input and Output transformers, Paul has you covered. To top it all off, you will receive detailed email updates, photos, and more every step of the way during the build process of your unit. Lead time is about 3-4 weeks, but well worth the wait to have your dream summing mixer! While there are many great companies like SSL, Burl, Neve, and many more offering summing mixers these days, none come with the outstanding flexibility as VintageMaker for a highly appealing cost.

Why analog mixing and mastering?

 

 

source: https://www.g-sonique.com/whyanalogmastering.html

 

- Because you want to sound like pro!

 

Simply: Good sound sells and make best first impression of your music…
You know that your entire favourite and worldwide successful artists have stunning sound/mastering, all commercial records are mastered in professional 
mastering studios. Perfect sound makes first impression and this is most important in modern music. You can make perfect sound only with combination of 
best analog equipment and digital tools, long term experiences, accurate monitoring and acoustically treated studio. This is simple fact.


- Transparent yet loud and professional sound, dynamics and overall balance
You can create "pseudo-mastering" with software plug-ins but sound will be probably distorted and squashed like hell with volume levels same like your 
favourite official released records. At best scenario with home pseudo-mastering transients, drums and hi-hats will be harsh and unpleasant to ears, sound 
will be digitally flat and sharp, sub bass will be squared not nice round and fat. This happens because home mastering works only with digital numbers and 
gain reduction/compression is done only with virtual digits. Gain reduction / making good dynamics is one of most important part of mastering. 
Analog mastering works with real signal, not numbers.
We are using many special techniques how to achieve loud and dynamic sound without distortion, sharp digital squashed sound and ear-killing transients 
and harsh trebles. We can make gain reduction with various tools at many stages of mastering like: transparent analog compression, vacuum tube saturation, 
analog limiting, clipping of hi-end AD converters (much better sounding than digital limiters, technique used on all today's commercial albums) and finally 
transparent digital limiters. If gain reduction is done with various analog and digital methods you can get loud, yet transparent, dynamic and pleasant sound.

 


Class A Equipment : fat, warm and pleasant analog sound / color. 

 

 

(No digital harshness, distortion and squashed sound like with home computer 
pseudo-mastering)  Vacuum tubes and other electronic components are producing 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc. harmonics as well as saturation/rounding peaks which 
makes sound so called warmer, fatter, richer (bass is round and fat, middles are intensive but pleasant, trebles are nice and silky - all without significant 
boosting of equalizer). There are many software emulations, but instead of real analog coloring they simply produce distortion and ugly digital artifacts/aliasing. 
Same with cheap hardware equipment.


- Experiences of mastering engineer
Experiences in music production, mixing and sound design as well as knowledge of special mastering techniques and tricks is most important if you want to 
get good sound. Our mastering engineer has more than 10 years experiences with producing music and mixing, playing in bands and as DJ, organizing 
music events, 4 years of experiences with work in other mastering studio (A.D.) and was leading DSP programmer in G-Sonique so he knows also technical 
background and secrets of digital audio processing.


- Make sure your music sounds good everywhere: club, open air party, home hi-fi or car
Basic nearfield monitors are perfect for mixing, but has flat / plastic sound without color and character, yet not enough details of sound. That is why all mastering 
studios use expensive hi-end audiophile speakers combining quality and linearity of monitors, with extremely detailed sound but with character and fullness of 
hifi sound. To be sure your track sound good on every speakers, we have next pairs of hi to low-end reference speakers in 2nd room. This, together with 
experiences allows mastering engineer to make accurate/precise sound that will sound good everywhere / on every sound system small or big concert PA.


- Fine-tuned balance of frequencies in acoustically treated studio with accurate monitoring
It is good known fact that bad room acoustic can change amount of frequencies that you hear, often bass is multiplied, other frequencies are reflected from walls 
or otherwise very absorbed if you have too many diffusers in mix studio. One frequency can affect others like heavy subbas can make mid-trebles virtually softer 
and more pleasant, but opposite missing of bass can make your record flat and sharp sounding. Bad acoustic can affect individual frequencies by +/- 6dB or 
more! Only if you have professionally calculated and measured studio
