Meet the UNFa-1 Accessory Box

Undertone Audio is excited to announce an all-new product, the UNFa-1 UnFairchild Accessory Box. The UNFa-1 adds a whole new world of control and flexibility to the UnFairchild, with some features that we always wanted on the UnFairchild, and some discovered after years of using the UnFairchild. The highlights:

FB/FF Control

UTA added the FB/FF control so you can get the full benefits of applying Feed Forward (“FF”) compression to the UnFairchild circuit. FF compression is a wonderfully aggressive sound but can be a bit unwieldy at times. Being able to blend the Feed-Forward (“FF”) signal with the Feedback (“FB”) signal allows you to add just the right amount to get that amazing aggressive sound without having the compression fall of a cliff of over compressing.

HP Freq Control

Many of you are likely already aware of the practice of High Passing the side chain signal on a compressor. For those of us that like to have a lot of low end in our mixes, it is helpful to make the compressor LESS sensitive to those frequencies so it is not mostly reacting to only the low frequencies and pulling down the volume of the overall mix. The HP FREQ control allows you to control this issue.

Mix Control

Many of you are likely already aware of “parallel” compression. With parallel compression, you are blending the compressed signal with the original uncompressed signal instead of only hearing the compressed signal. It allows you to use more extreme compression settings without having the signal sound too compressed. Why is this useful? Why wouldn’t you just use a less extreme compression setting if you want it to sound less compressed? Blending more extreme compression can sound very different than simply setting the compressor less extreme.

Output Control

As mentioned in the “Front Panel Controls” section, UTA has found that the UnFairchild can sound really good when pushing A LOT of level through it. By reducing the output level, you can get the benefits of pushing a lot of level without clipping the input of whatever device comes after it.

…and so much more!!!
