Modeled after a ‘gold-standard’ British analog preamp known for its warmth and musicality. Its sonic signature is ubiquitous to the point of needing no further introduction, and it’s borderline impossible to make it sound bad.
Impresser was modeled after one of the most flexible, powerful and edgy compressors known to the audio world. Its signature sound is due to a unique analog design and a very special feature set. Impresser fits the best from classic vintage compression while adding a wider range of control options to the table. This vintage unit, now recreated by the powerful Antelope Audio FPGA engine, can handle it all. Impresser can add gentle and warm compression to your tracks or aggressively pump up any source audio.
The flexibility of Impresser is aided by the addition of its own harmonic distortion. This can be used for subtle, tube-quality distortion and even instead of a tape saturator. It works magic with or without the Impresser compressing the signal. Our own contribution to the effect comes as adjustable frequency settings for the High and Band Pass Sidechain Filters. This offers you even deeper control when shaping the frequency range where you need the Impresser doing its job. Like all Antelope Audio FPGA compressor models you can use the Impresser either on mono or with two channels stereo linked.
PowerGate is Antelope Audio’s very first noise gate tool. Requested by our trusted users, it’s now available with all our Thunderbolt & USB or HD interfaces for free. PowerGate allows you to track audio from sources with unwanted background or ground noise. It will keep you sound free of any artifacts such as bad resonances, bleeds from other sources or excessive sustain. PowerGate features a standard set of controls. Precise Threshold, Attack, Hold, Decay, Range and Gain knobs allow yo to adapt the unit to any kind of problematic sound.
Modeled after a legendary 1950s compressor, Tubechild670 gives you nothing less than the sound of the golden age of rock’n’roll. An expensive collectors item, the hardware original has been sought after and used by more studios and on more hit records that you can ever imagine. And now, thanks to our real-time FPGA modeling platform, this coveted tool is in your hands — for free.
Tubechild670 is a precise peak limiter that sounds thick and natural. It gives you control over the Input and Output Gain levels, the Threshold and the Time Constant. We owe its signature sounds to a very smart and simplistic circuitry design, short attack, and long release time. The Tubechild 670 is guaranteed to help vocals and leads shine in the mix, but also works its magic on drums and sounds spectacular when applied for “gluing” groups of instruments. It’s very subtle in terms of adding its own character to the overall sound, but you can’t mistake a Tubechild670-treated track as it just sounds so great!
Grove Hill Liverpool is a contemporary fusion of 1960s’ finest American and British compression technologies. This compressor sounds rich, wide and thick. Run acoustic guitars through it and you’ll hear them as clear as possible, yet with a more full-bodied sound and soul.
A great mid-range healer, Liverpool will add a desirable smoothness to guitar leads, synths and vocals. And when applied to bass, it will achieve a big and warm sound. Push it harder, and you’ll add an edge without affecting clarity. Liverpool is an amazing tool that’s quite unlike other compressors.
BA-6A is following the original simple, beautiful and effective design of a 1950s legendary limiting amplifier. It was originally created for TV and radio broadcasting purposes, but was quickly adopted by many recording engineers because it was easy to use and sounded so great. Even today the BA-6A not only holds up, but is still sought after and used in various pro studio facilities across the globe. Allowing three-stage amplification with a moderate drive, hard knee, fast attack and medium release, BA-6A has a balanced and vintage sound. It can help you tame the most aggressive and peaking instruments or the wildest mixes without losing any of the music’s punch.
An ’80s classic, the SMT-100A is among the easiest compressor effects to learn. Yet, this ease of use doesn’t come at the cost of neither effectiveness, nor sound! For over 30 years now, this unit has remained a top choice by the pros for its fast attack times and its ability to do a great job with vocals, drums, and bass. For its FPGA-driven replica, we worked hard to painstakingly preserve both the special sound of the SMT-100A and its simplistic design and control set. This way, you can focus on getting the sound you want quickly, without much of a learning curve.
Is this product in stock?
We try our best to have everything in stock, but sometimes items sell out faster than we can update the website, as this is a manual process. If this is the case we will call or email you and let you know if your order cannot be fulfilled, and what your options are as soon as possible. We have multiple warehouses around the country so the "in stock" and "out of stock" is an indication of if the item is able to be shipped from one of them, our store, or one of our distributors.

Whilst it Is possible, we highly recommend that you do not do it. All freight warranty & insurance will be void. Only do so at your own risk, if someone steals it, Musos Corner & The freight company will not be held accountable.
If you will not be able to take the delivery, it might be worth asking a friend or neighbour to take delivery of it for you.
What if it appears my goods have been freight damaged?
Please check all items before signing for them! This is very important. Do not sign for an item that appears damaged, to sign for them means "Signed for in good working order" and subsequently is out of the couriers hands, and voids insurance. If this was not possible, there can be a 24 Hour window to try and claim insurance, please contact us & the courier immediately. This only applies to orders that have paid for Insurance & are sent via courier.
Can the courier or delivery person call me prior to delivery?
Unfortunately as often as we request this, we get denied as many times. No courier or Australia post worker will call you prior to delivery despite any bribes we may try and offer.
If you select courier we will send you a tracking number which you can use to find out an estimated time of arrival for your goods, or alternatively have it sent to a business address.
Can I have my goods delivered on the weekend or after hours?
Unfortunately this is not possible at the current point in time, however you are welcome to pickup in store late night Thursday or on weekends from our Newcastle store. Please contact us to set a pickup time.
I've been emailed a tracking number, how do I track it?
The number should look like Fastway FA0000001 or Startrack YTP0000 or Aus Post 111111, Simply go to the website of the company it was sent with (Fastway,Startrack Express, Australia Post) and trace it there.
Do i need to set up my product?
All guitars some fully set up ready to play (after a quick tuning). Banjos will need to be set up after delivery as they cannot be shipped set up unless they are bought with a case. Some products like piano stands require some basic assembly as they are flat packed for shipping.
