Product Description

[ UPDATE: The Vintage FX website is now live, and, amazingly, it has sound samples for every effect in the book. ]

Vintage FX is a magnum opus about vintage studio effects which is utterly addictive and superbly informative. The photos are great (we supplied a few from our archives).

Features the unsung behind the scenes studio heroes that helped shape some of the greatest recordings of all time. Like the Eventide H-910 that got Tony Visconti the gig producing Low for David Bowie with Brian Eno in Berlin (his legendary description - 'it fucks with the fabric of time' - sealed the deal). This book gives the reader a comprehensive overview of and a glimpse into the world of classic studio effects units – perfect for producers, musicians, gearheads...

Anthony Agnello, President of Eventide Audio Division, Inc., wrote:

"This book is a work of passion and dedication. It's an encyclopedia. It's a reference. I am gobsmacked at the amount of detail included for each of his subjects. For nerds like me, the photos of the 'innards', the circuit boards, ribbon cables and controls are fascinating. Above all, it's also a great read. Matthias considers every aspect of every piece of gear. How it sounded, what it does, why it was developed, who developed it. And, I think most importantly, he documents the artists that found inspiration from these effects and how those seminal effects were used, sometimes for the first time, on iconic hit records."
