Santa Barbara, CA (October 6, 2006)–Looking for something to fatten up your sounds and mixes? U.S. distributor, QuireTec Designs International urges that you look no further than the Fatman line of studio processors, designed and manufactured by renowned UK audio company, TLAudio. QuireTec will be showing the Fatman processors at AES this weekend, in Booth #1644.
Included in this Fatman line is the Fat Funker, a tube-based rack-mount recording channel, complete with mic preamp, compressor, and EQ, that also features an instrument input optimized for guitar and bass, and the 2 Fat, a rack-mount compressor/EQ with presets designed for a variety of sound sources, from vocals to guitars to drums. Like the Fat Funker, the valve-based 2 Fat adds exceptional warmth and richness to virtually any sound, and–according to QuireTec–“at an estimated street price of well under $600, establishes new standards in price/performance for high-end tube-based studio processors.” Both units feature analog outputs; a digital output option is also available.
QuireTec president Ted Keffalo commented: “In this age of digital recording, a tube front-end can make the difference between a recording that’s dry and sterile, and one that’s warm and pleasing. For players, the instrument input on the FatFunker makes it perfect for a guitar or bass rig. There’s no question that Fatman processors deliver, giving users access to great tone, along with the quality that TLA is known for.”
Again, Fatman processors are on display at the QuireTec booth, #1644.
