But alas, you can't because there's just too much top secret stuff on it. Upcoming products that are under construction, prototypes under development and most importantly... inventions. Before this year's out, LBA will be unveiling a series of new and innovative analog tools for the Mix Engineer. One of these tools is revolutionary and very affordable, but that's super hush hush for now, so lets talk about the other goodies.
The Flux Bender Equalizer is unfortunately delayed at the moment, while Cinemag hastily works to build new output transformers for the production prototype. There was a mistake with the last batch, and I admit it was my error for ordering the wrong transformers... the part numbers were one digit off. The EQ is completely wired up and just awaiting its output transformers. This production prototype will be tested and studied to verify technical information such as frequency points, S:N performance, and any potential issues will be hunted down. Following the test phase, the prototype will be disassembled. The components from the production prototype will be used to build the first production model. I would like to point out that the current production prototype is not the first prototype. There have been a number of prototypes leading up to this one, which is the first stereo version.
Analog Plate Reverb... I'm about to start working on the plate reverb at LBA Studios. It was the very first plate reverb I ever built and its long overdue for some massive updates. The electronics its running are the most up to date amplifiers offered by Lightning Boy Audio, but the mechanics are out dated. The 1401 plate reverb design differs in a number of ways, so I will be stripping down the old reverb and the only thing I'm keeping from it is the frame. New sheet of steel (slightly different dimensions), new driver, new motorized panel with remote, new isolation case. I'll be documenting the rebuild with lots of youtube video footage, so make sure you subscribe to my youtube channel to stay up on the updates at:
