Heritage Audio 8173

When launched in 1972, the 1081 became the most flexible equalizer ever in a mixing console. Its 4 band equalizer allowed sculpting the sound in such a unique way, mainly due to the fact that both mid bands covered almost the whole audio spectrum in 20 steps. Unfortunately, a class A/B output stage was used instead of the class A one used in the 1073, making it a second choice for tracking in favour of the 1073.

Unfortunately, a class A/B output stage was used instead of the class A one used in the 1073, making it a second choice for tracking in favour of the 1073.

Being users of the old modules for 20 years, we always came with the "could it be possible to have a 1081 eq with a 1073 preamp in our console?" question. The answer has been NO, until now...
We are proud to introduce the 8173 mic pre- 4 band equalizer module. The name says it all. The best of both worlds in an 8 3/4" module package, fully compatible with Series 80 consoles. It could be easily described as a 1073 with the mid bands of the 1081. We´ve decided to keep the 1073 Baxandall shelving lo and hi eq bands as they sound amazing, but have implemented a choice of 3 hi shelving frecuencies, a la 1084. Flexibility and Tone!!!

Heritage Audio 6673

Heritage Audio 6673. In March 1970 the first 1073 module was launched and became the standard in 80 series consoles.

Heritage Audio 6673

In March 1970 the first 1073 module was launched and became the standard in 80 series consoles. The 1066 was gradually replaced in newly shipped consoles and finally disappeared. The 1073 featured almost the same identical circuitry, being the most relevant differences the hi frequency shelving ( 12Khz instead of 10Khz ) and the equalizer´s mid band, which had one more center frequency, but lacked the constant Q of the 1066 . Vintage module connoisseurs do know how sweet the 1066mid band sounds and, for some, something was lost in the way. Until now...
The 6673 module is the answer to an old question among vintage module users. Should I use a 1073 or a 1066 for this specific source material? Should I need to boost at 700 Hz or would it be better to cut at 360 Hz? Should I need 12Khz or would it probably better to add 10Khz instead? 
These and a lot more questions that have become "classic" in some professional environments have a new answer.
 
Heritage Audio is proud to introduce the 6673 module. A 100% series 80 compatible module featuring the same Class A mic preamplifier found in the classic modules with an added key feature: A 4 BAND EQUALIZER. Better said, THE 4 band equalizer as it features the same exact 3 band equalizer circuit found in the famous 1073 plus the mid band found in the 1066.
In addition, we have expanded the 1073 mid band with 3 extra frequency choices, widening the sonic palette.
 
Now you can boost at 700 Hz for "thick as a brick" guitars and cut at 360 Hz to get rid of the mud.

    Heritage Audio 2264E Compressor / Limiter

    First launched in 1974, the original 2264A Compressor/Limiter was a worthy successor of the 2254, with shorter recovery times and more precise controls. However a far more transparent class A/B amplifier stage was used instead of the much beloved class A one. By today standards, something was lost in the way. Making our rendition to the 2264 with the class A amplifier became an obvious task. And here it is, the 2264E - Enhanced 2264-, gain control circuit of the 2264a with a 2254 audio path. Best of both worlds! 
     
    Hand crafted exactly as in 1974. No corners cut. Electrically and mechanically compatible with all other 10 series modules, the 2264E can be used in 80 series consoles, third party 8 channel frames, etc.

    Heritage Audio 73 Junior 1073 500 Series Equalizer

    The 73EQ JR is a fully featured Line Input module for the 500 Series.


    It not only shares the 3-band Equalizer with his big brother, the 1073, but also shares the same transformer coupled line preamp and Class A transformer balanced output stage.


    These facts make the 73EQ JR unique on its class, being able to capture a full transformer based, Class A sound without relying on external preamps.


    The Equalizer features the same Baxandall type High and Low shelf found in the 1073, with the addition of a high frequency selector switch. 4 different frequencies are possible instead of the fixed 12Khz one.

    The mid band is the same exact dual inductor 1073 one, thick low and sweet high midrange boosts without being muddy or brittle!

    The line preamp has a range of +6 to -20dB, allowing heavy eq boosts without overloadingA/D converters.

    Finally, special care has been taken with power handling, implementing internal +24v slow turn on regulation (about 20 seconds to reach full voltage ). This makes your 73EQ JR independent of the rest of the slots and makes your lunchbox's PSU happier.

    - +6 to -20dB Class A Line preamplifier, bridging input impedance, balanced and floating.

    - High Frequency: +/- 16dB shelving, selectable at 10, 12, 16 or 20Khz, Baxandall type.

    - Low Frequency: +/- 16dB shelving, with selectable frequency of 35, 60, 110 or 220 Hz, Baxandall type.

    - Mid Frequency: +/- 18dB peaking, fixed Q, selectable center frequencies of 0.36, 0.7, 1.6, 3.2, 4.8 and 7.2 Khz, dual inductor based.

    Heritage Audio 1084 Low Pass Filter Module

    The 1084 module is considered by many to be a 1073 on steroids. It can be described as a 1073 with some added flexibility, without losing any of its many famous sounds.

    The differences with the 1073 module are as follow:
    - 3 selectable hi shelf frequencies, instead of the 12Khz fixed one in the 1073.
    - 2 selectable Qs in the mid band, being the hi Q the same 1073 one.
    - 5 frequency selectable passive LC Low Pass Filter, which is not available in the 1073.

    The Low Pass Filter is especially useful for sweetening overhead tracks, harsh or brittle hi hats and cymbals. It also helps remove unwanted hiss and noise on bass heavy tracks, where a flat high frequency response is not needed.

    In combination with the High Pass Filter, Special Effects can be archived, like telephone, radio and TV sounds that never sound natural using plug ins!

    The Lo Q option in the mid band makes heavy boosting exceptionally natural and helps tracks sound unprocessed. Acoustic and classical recordings will highly benefit from this feature.

    Whether you're in doubt which module to choose, 1073 or 1084, and money is not the problem, the 1084 should be the way to go, as all the features and sounds of the 1073 are intact.

    Whether you can live without the sweet Low Pass Filter and the 12Khz high shelving frequency limitation is enough for you, going the 1073 way might be enough.

    - 80dB Class A Microphone preamplifier, HI-LO selectable minimum input impedance, balanced and floating. High gain positions show a higher impedance, ideal for old ribbon mics.

    Heritage Audio MCM-8

    Standing for Music Compact Mixer 8, the MCM-8 is an 8 slot 500 Series enclosure with 10 channel mixing capabilities and it's the Top of the Line of the new Heritage Audio "ON SLOT" Technology (OTS) 500 Series enclosures.

    "ON SLOT TECHNOLOGY" takes advantage of last generation power electronics to handle power supply on a "per slot" basis. Each slot has its own power supply linear regulation stages, therefore modules are isolated from the rest. They just share the metal enclosure.

    With literally hundreds of brands making 500 series modules, we at Heritage Audio think this is the professional way of handling this reliably, eliminating issues often associated with sharing power between different modules of different brands and natures.

    Each slot features test leds for checking correct power operation (red for +16v, green for -16v), located aside of the slot connector.

    Thanks to the use of OST, the power capability of the MCM-8 is 400mA per rail per slot maximum, with an overall of 1.4A (1.6A non continuous) per rail, whichever is reached first.

    Phantom power available is 140mA total.

    The RAF Blue Gray enclosure is made out of heavy gauge steel with an aluminum front panel in the United Kingdom.

    There are Pan and Fader controls per slot on dual concentric potentiometers. Pan pots are center detent for precise center positioning. Features include an ON switch to assign each channel to the Mix Bus.

    The Mix Bus follows a passive, voltage summing topology, similar to that found in the 80 Series consoles of the 70s. The gain loss is restored by the same Class A, 2n3055 driven, transformer based output stage used in the 1073 by which Heritage Audio is known for.

    An additional Stereo Input is provided on the back of the unit, allowing several MCM-8 units to be daisy chained, or signals not needing further 500 series processing to be mixed together.

    The central section has analog VU meters and a Stereo Master fader.

    Connections are made by means of both gold plated XLRs and DSUB25 Input and Outputs, with Standard Tascam protocol.

    Heritage Audio BT-500

    The Heritage Audio BT-500 Bluetooth-Streaming 500 Series Module is Heritage ?s entry into the Internet of Things. No other current product, be it 500 series, rack or other format, has the features of the BT-500, which finally solves the connectivity problems of mobile devices in a professional studio environment.
    NO MORE MINI JACKS... The BT-500 streams audio from your mobile device over Bluetooth and delivers a fully balanced, +22dBu stereo output. 
    Employing last generation audio specific Bluetooth technology, the best Codecs your devices can support and a state of the Art, Burr Brown based analog signal path, it solves the already classic, irritating problem of connecting your iOS or Android device to your Studio setup. To this day this has been solved using mini jack to XLRs adaptor cables, but the limitations of mobile devices' analog audio paths have become clearly apparent. Listening to references on the iTunes Store, recordings sent by email, Spotify, You Tube, you name it. You do it every day, all the time. Nevertheless integration has been non convenient to say the least, until now.
    SOUND QUALITY OVER BLUETOOTH? AAC & APTX... The BT-500 automatically recognizes your device ?s best codec option and uses it for streaming. Apple ?s iTunes Store and You Tube use AAC* as native so streaming from an iPhone or iPad will result in a lossless transmission, much better than an analog wired connection!! Vast majority of Android devices have already adopted the APTX**codec, which is nearly lossless and the standard that wireless high quality headsets and sound bars are adopting. For a complete list of devices currently supporting APTX please visit: Wireless Headphones and Bluetooth Speakers - aptX Products
    In case your device can ?t support neither AAC nor APTX, the BT-500 will stream audio using the classic SBC codec.
    BURR BROWN PEDIGREE ?S IN THE ANALOG PATH... The BT-500 substitutes your mobile device ?s analog circuitry with a state of the art, fully differential Burr Brown balanced output stage which delivers a full 0dBfs = +22dBu output able to drive a load of 600 ohms. This allows direct level comparisons while mastering or mixing with Apple ?s iTunes Store or mobile stored reference mixes.
