Lightning Boy Audio (LBA) has announced the availability of the Voice of the Gods (VOG) plate reverb.
It’s an analog stereo plate reverb inspired by the classic EMT plate reverb first introduced in 1957. At just over 5 feet tall and 8 feet wide and weighing in at nearly 400 pounds, VOG provides a “shimmer” to recordings with the natural beauty of a real stereo plate reverb.
It also provides a detailed and rich warm analog sound, in contrast to emulators and plug-ins. Lightning Boy Audio takes a classic concept to a new level of high fidelity with our hand wired class A tube amplifiers.
The adjustable dampening panel on the VOG allows the reverb decay time to be set anywhere between 2 to 5 seconds, either manually, or with the optional motorized remote control.
The VOG driver amplifier is a class A, 15-watt mono tube amp that delivers rich single-ended tube tone and features passive EQ controls for bass and treble with also a volume control to push the reverb driver.
The driver amp is loaded with NOS EL84, 12AX7 and 6X4 vacuum tubes, paper in oil caps, and top-quality audio transformers available.
The VOG output amplifier is a class A, push-pull stereo tube amp with separate volume controls and offers the flexibility to connect to the FX return on a mixing board or to the inputs of an A/D converter for digital mixing. A matching pair of high-quality NOS 6922 vacuum tubes, a NOS 6X4 vacuum tube, and premium audio transformers round out the output amp.
Lightning Boy Audio recently completed a VOG install at Schwab Music, a mixing and mastering studio located on the north side of Chicago.
