    Black Lion Audio announces an homage to classic Melcor sound with welcomed Eighteen channel strip
     
     
    CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, USA: hot on the heels of the runaway success of its much-loved Seventeen compressor, boutique audio company Black Lion Audio is proud to announce the Eighteen channel strip — an homage to the classic Melcor sound, delivering the best of vintage vibes to today’s recordings — as of October 16
     
    Eighteen features a mic preamp with Cinemag input and output transformers and two BLA1831 discrete op-amps, as well as a passive program EQ with a custom Cinemag inductor. In spite of that, this channel strip’s preamplifier circuit is not just another clone, but rather an homage built to pay proper tribute to one of the most classic designs in the world. Which is exactly why Black Lion Audio developed the BLA1831 — a customised, discrete op-amp created through an extensive period of component testing to deliver great vintage tone while still matching a noise floor that is akin to modern equipment.
     
    Eighteen can be described as having a punchy midrange with a buttery-smooth top and bottom end. It also brings an impressive, original passive inductor-based equalizer featuring a custom-made Cinemag inductor to the musical proceedings, one that both discerning ears and those new to pro audio are sure to appreciate. As such, the results are amazing — a quiet and ultra-flexible equalizer that packs all of the vibe of anyone’s favourite program-style EQs.
     
    But better still, Black Lion Audio designs, engineers, assembles, and tests each unit by hand in the USA!
     
     
    Eighteen is expected to ship through Black Lion Audio’s growing global network of dealers/distributors (https://www.blacklionaudio.com/dealers) before the end of January 2020 with a MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) of $899.00 USD.
