The Solution


 

WHAT WE DO

 

We make affordable, passive, transformer based devices that can add density, focus, and interest to your signal chain.

As modern musicians working on DAW's we all need to tame the digital glassy-ness on our tracks, but we can't all afford to buy texture-rich analog gear for every channel ... until now! Transformers, as everyone knows, can impart pleasant harmonic texture to musical tracks.  Our passive devices sit "in-line" in your signal chain, and respond to the gain of an input signal and add subtle coloration that can’t be quite duplicated with EQ or compression.

It is time to put some ANALOGTONE in your tone!

I’m loving patching it in stereo across my mix bus and recording the return. I’ve been a bit surprised by some of the characteristics – it seems to really calm down the most aggressive transients, which both warms up the sound and smooths out the harsh edges. It also seems to employ a pseudo-limiting quality that helps me squeeze a bit more volume out when I bring it back in…

I’ve enjoyed using it on individual instruments, specifically acoustic and electric guitar, bass, upright bass drums sub mix, and vocals. The Tonewire was a LIFESAVER recently when recording vocals for a very strong, aggressive singer who didn’t like the “mechanical, harsh” sound of his voice. I simul-tracked him through an AT 4033 and a regular ol’ SM-57. The AT for shine and clarity, and the 57 because it ignored some of the nuances of his voice and gave a more straight-forward signal. Ran them each through a tube pre to tape, then inserted the Tonewire on each to return on a third and fourth track. The resulting signal was so much more smooth, without compromising the strength of the vocal…

I really like it. The video does it no justice. I have been trying to think of a way to make a video that helps it but with online streaming being such poor quality it seems null and void. The thing that I noticed the most is that the mix gets wider. It is so hard to explain. The thing I was missing is there now. Good product, most people would not understand but I am an advocate.

— B. Bee, Producer, Ogden, Utah

The both sound fantastic […] I can see myself using the SOME settings on both units constantly, but the MORE settings will find their way into a bunch of mixes too almost as easily — although not as often on the 2bus.

If you like the sound of transformers, this is a great way to get a lot of flavor for little cost. I don’t know what that final price will be, but I believe it will retail around $300. Well worth that price in my opinion.

These are the type of units, I would not use occasionally, but simply use them on everything because they don’t do too much, they just bring back a little of the analog, ear-pleasing, sound from nature that agrees with our ears. Thank you Analogtone! I think I’m going to purchase one of each. And I look forward to double stacking them to see what happens.

I tracked female singer songwriter with a Grace M801 thru a Lauten Audio Horizon Tube Mic for vocals and Earthworks SR30 on the 14th fret of a Taylor 810. Out of the Grace for each channel into the Orange Tonewire and tracked song 1st in bypassed mode. Then I did a second take with the “Less” switches and a 3rd take with the “MORE” switches. Listening live the differences were subtle but going back thru the 3 takes i found I was instantly gravitated toward the 3rd take. On take one i was 2nd guessing my mic choice on vocals, just wasn’t quite right. Just a little too much attack in the higher frequencies. I decided to let it ride. Take 2 (Less) some of the edges were rounded. Take 3 (More) right on the money. It was like an oh so slight compression of -2 or -3 along with a rounding of those top frequencies gave her voice a hug. Felt just right.

— Ben Canon, Producer, Charlotte, North Carolina

First, the Orange really made a difference. I was live listening while playing with the more/some switches and the saturation differences were noticeable to me. That said, my wife couldn’t really hear the difference. (I would classify her as a music consumer, but just wanted to share that some may think it’s a very subtle difference). There was a warmth and saturated tone that came from the unit being in use that was not there without it. I ended up mastering with ‘some’ because I didn’t want to oversaturate the entire mix, especially since it was done in a good studio. But with the ‘some’ setting, here are the major three things I noticed: A warmer tone, A richer bottom end, A softer tone in the mids.
