Hazelrigg Industries VEC Recording Bundle

The Hazelrigg Industries VEC Recording Bundle creates a pristine and musical recording solution (channel strip), by combining the VLC Microphone Preamp and EQ, with the VNE Tube Compressor, and a stylish vent panel to go in between them. This combination looks great and sounds amazing!

The Hazelrigg Industries VEC Recording Bundle offers a pristine, yet musical high fidelity sonic character with the open dimensional lushness of tubes.

The VLC Preamp & Equalizer

The foundation of the VLC is the legendary Preamp and Power Supply design utilized in the VT series of Tube Microphone Preamplifiers from D.W. Fearn. Designed for sonic transparency and delivering incredible headroom, the VLC will produce stunning results with dynamic, condenser and ribbon microphones and will change the way that you approach your mic locker during a session. A rotary switch on the front panel will also select between Microphone, Instrument Input (DI) or the Balanced Line Level Input located on the back panel. The all tube DI path is ideal for acoustic instruments with pickups, electric bass, modular synths or any instrument that would enjoy a bit of D. W. Fearn magic, while the Line Level Input allows the VLC to be wired as an insert on your mixer or DAW for fast and easy “re-preamping” of tracks during production or mix down. This feature is the secret weapon of many VLC users and allows them to breathe new life into tracks received from remote clients or simply add a bit of extra mojo to a mix as needed. Moving beyond the input and gain sections, the VLC delivers powerful tone contouring in the form of a passive LC EQ. The bottom is handled by variable Low Cut and Low Boost controls while the top end is managed similarly with High Boost and High Cut dials. Each of these four controls features a two way High/Low Frequency Select switch for even more precise tone shaping. Beautifully musical - even at extreme settings - these controls encourage you to use your ears to dial in your tone while an EQ In/Out toggle is nearby to make it easy to check your work.

The VNE Compressor

Ideal for tracking and mixing, the Hazelrigg Industries VNE features an all Class-A vacuum tube audio path, like all D.W. Fearn and Hazelrigg Industries products. As originally introduced in the D.W. Fearn VT-7 Stereo Tube Compression Amplifier, the gain reduction circuit utilizes readily available tubes to deliver classic tube compressor performance, while employing a unique Pulse Width Modulation control circuit to drive the compression. The combination of this precision PWM control methodology and D.W. Fearn’s high fidelity compression amplifier design result in an audio tool that delivers comprehensive dynamics control, without imparting unwanted tonal artifacts on the source material. In use, the VNE can be applied as subtly or aggressively as desired while retaining a beautifully transparent sonic signature.

The VPH Vented Rack Panel

Tubes put off heat. Heat rises. This 1U vented panel mounts in between the VLC and VNE, to allow the proper space for the heat to vent and dissipate between the units, keeping them cooler. All the while matching the aesthetics of the units, for a stylish look.

What We Think

If you want a channel strip solution that gives you a musical but natural tone with tons of detail and life, the Hazelrigg Industries VEC Recording Bundle is exactly what you are looking for. The Pre has clarity and depth, and is open and smooth. The Plutec style EQ it is paired with helps shape and elevate the audio to a new level. The VNE is musical, but as far as compression behavior - it is transparent. This combination creates something unique and magical. This bundle is absolutely perfect for acoustic instruments and vocals. Also, if you are the Blue Grass band that records single mic in the center of a semi-circle....... this bundle would bring so much energy to your recordings. It is something to experience to understand how stellar this bundle is sonically. - Ryan Ferris,Pro Audio Sale Manager
