Manufacturer of custom recording consoles and high-end outboard gear, Undertone Audio has launched its re-designed UnFairchild 670M II which was first unveiled at AES LA in October 2016. The Fairchild is a compressor that needs no introduction and it’s coveted by many for its musicality. The compressor’s circuit is beautifully simple — only two transformers and four paralleled vari-mu tubes in the audio path. The Undertone Audio UnFairchild is a painstaking recreation of the classic sound from this circuitry, capturing the best of the past, and now also offering more modern functionality. Overcoming the original’s limitations, UnFairchild’s redesigned circuitry improves on the lifespan and reliability of the JJ 6386 tubes, a massive cost-savings for studios and engineers. And the UnFairchild’s focus on flexibility and functionality enables it to handle every compression task on any style of music, from pop to rock to jazz to classical.
