About Analog Gear

The availability and choice of various types of Analog Gear has grown to tackle a staggering number of tasks and problems that we find when dealing with audio recording and production. Despite our studios (these days) being centered around a computer and software, Analog Gear still holds a very important part of our tracking, mixing, and mastering processes. Needless to say, microphone preamps are amount the most important, as we have to amplify the outputs of our mics to a recordable line level. Whether we are using standalone preamps, the compact 500 series format, or an all-in-one channel strip, the preamp (along with the microphone) is the starting point of our recording signal chain. From there, we have signal processing analog gear that can be used in both the recording and mixing process, these including compressors and limiter for controlling dynamics of the audio signal, equalizers for shaping sound and resolving frequency conflicts, gates and expanders for reducing and eliminating bleed from other sound sources, as well as multi-effects processors for adding reverbs, delays, chorusing, flanging and phasing, and much more. Direct Boxes can be a handy way to track acoustic and electric guitars, as well as bass guitars and keyboard, without the need for instrument amplifiers. For those that want an authentic traditional workflow, there are a number of quality studio consoles for handling your tracking, mixing and summing, and monitor controlling needs. For those that want the sonic benefit of analog summing, but without the additional functions of a studio console, the advent of Summing Mixers have brought a world of benefits to the modern hybrid studio. No matter the sized, workflow, or demands, of your studio – Front End Audio has the knowlegde, experience, and selection of Analog Gear to meet your needs.
