The Warm Audio Iconic Vocal Chain is an exclusive Front End Audio vocal bundle that replicates that iconic vocal sound heard on countless pop, hip-hop and R&B hits from the 90's through today, and sought after by engineers, producers and artists.
Front End Audio has teamed up with Warm Audio to put together the Iconic Vocal Chain which is made up of three Warm Audio pieces: the Warm Audio WA-8000, Warm Audio WA-73EQ and the Warm Audio WA-1B. Each item in this bundle has been faithfully and accurately recreated making this iconic sound within your reach, without breaking the bank! We have also included Warm Audio Premier Cables to round out this bundle, so you are ready to track iconic vocals right out of the box.
Warm Audio WA-8000 Tube Microphone
The WA-8000 is a nod to a very special large diaphragm tube condenser microphone that made its way onto countless platinum recordings starting in the early 90s and continuing today. The sound of this mic has delivered hits for artists ranging from Dr. Dre, Mariah Carey, Boyz II Men and Brian McKnight to Eminem, Rihanna, Drake and more. The original stood out, boasting a natural and open top end, supremely clear midrange, and the ability to render detail in a vocal performance unlike most other mics on the planet. The WA-8000 rises to the occasion and delivers all that top end, beat by beat, at a price that will leave you hypnotized.
Warm Audio WA73-EQ Microphone Preamp & EQ
If there’s one style of preamp that professional engineers would unanimously agree has defined the tone of pop/rock records for decades, it would most definitely be the much respected '73-style of mic pre. '73-style preamps have been massively used in recording and live applications for many years and are still considered to be the “Holy Grail” of preamp choices today. The tone and sweet character that vintage '73-style mic preamps imparts is so unique and familiar, that Warm Audio had only the pure desire to release sonically accurate reproductions. After years of R&D, intense research and countless hours of auditioning, the WA73-EQ was born!
Warm Audio WA-1B Optical Compressor
The WA-1B accurately recreates world-class Scandinavian compression combining smooth tube-optical warmth with precision controls. Like its original inspiration favored by producers and engineers from Chris Lord-Alge to Rick Rubin, the WA-1B delivers that revered “forgiving” musical compression of tube-optical circuitry with speed and control more closely associated with modern dynamics processing. As the compressor of choice for many of the most profound vocal performances, this style of compression has shaped the sound of recordings by artists such as Adele, Dr. Dre, Lenny Kravitz, Norah Jones, The Black Keys and many more. With premium components and meticulous circuit design, the WA-1B has all of the tone and characteristics of the most celebrated compression that blends vintage tone with modern control.
Warm Audio Premier Cables
When Warm Audio decided to create superior audio cables, they knew that they needed to find a partner just as meticulous as them when sourcing the highest quality components available. With that mission in mind, they partnered with Switzerland-based Gotham AG - Europe’s top producer of premium cable, known as “The Neumann Cable” for decades. The construction and components, in partnership with Gotham AG, allow Warm Audio to offer cables with absolutely stellar audio performance, near-perfect signal transfer, and ultimate reliability. Front End Audio includes three cables with this bundle: a 20 footer to connect the WA-8000 to the WA73-EQ, a 3 footer to connect the WA73-EQ to the WA-1B (from the back of the unit), and a 10 footer to connect the WA-1B to you your interface, which should give you plenty of extra cable for those longer desk runs. If any of these cables do not work for your particulare setup, just let us know and we will be happy to accommodate your connection needs.
