Designers often look to earlier decades or generations for inspiration, borrowing motifs and palettes that are recognizable through their ability to elicit nostalgia. From the ever-popular 50s and 60s to the growing interest in the early years of the 20th century, this rejuvenated aesthetic can influence everything from fashion and hair (or beard styles) to housewares and furniture. New Retro focuses specifically on graphic designers that evoke bygone eras with their creative work. The first section showcases logo design and examines the ways in which designers are able to incorporate vintage typefaces and imagery to create new and innovative brand identities and logotypes. The second section presents highly skillful graphic output ¿ from poster and print design to fashion, product, packaging design and more ¿ that nods back while leaning forward.

The flamey AA-grade koa earmarked for this series was so seductive we couldn´t resist going all-koa (although a premium Engelmann spruce top is optional). Larry Breedlove´s rosette design incorporates a serpentine swath of koa set against creamy boxwood. The koa/boxwood pairing carries over to the Engraved Twist fretboard inlay, in which the design´s swirling complexity is tempered with the subtle, organic quality of thin wood lines. A shaded edgeburst around the entire guitar — including the neck — adds a touch of vintage Hawaiian charm that´s complemented by rosewood binding, thin white purfling, and Gotoh tuners.Tonally, a koa top should make koa´s natural midrange sweetness even more pronounced, especially after the guitar has been played in. Koa guitars also tend to be well-suited for the stage because the initial attack is balanced and focused without being boomy.Get all the Taylor´s news with the Wood&Steel magazine right here.

The Distressor is an automatic gain (or volume) control device (AGC in engineering terms) designed for pro audio (music) applications. Basically, it electronically controls the volume of just about any source in a very pleasing, and musical manner - adding fullness, intelligibility, and especially in the Distressor´s case - excitement. This type of device is often called a limiter or compressor by audio industry people. Its most probable uses will be in recording studios, live sound situations, movie sound production, and radio broadcast production. Unlike most analog compressor/limiters the Distressor is a digitally controlled audio device and actually incorporates several products into one by utilizing digital controls to switch totally different circuits in and out. Years of beta testing and redesign went into the Distressor as will be the case with all Empirical Labs products.Besides offering a wide range of control and unique features, the Distressor offers a warm, vintage sound by using a custom designed gain control circuit. This warmth or vintage sound has become an important issue in the last 15 years, as the super clear and linear digital technology does very little (or nothing) to soften harsh sounds nor emphasize the bass frequencies in music sources. Older analog tape, vinyl records and tube equipment on the other hand, could not be prevented from coloring the sound, often to the frustration of recording engineers. However, many people have now realized that this coloring can be extremely pleasant and musical.The current digital technology is often referred to as cold and brittle among other terms, although we prefer the term unforgiving to describe the negative side of the linearity. The Distressor offers several modes that color the signal, even without compression (or gain control). These extended modes were designed to allow emulation of some very old and some very expensive vintage gain control units (compressors & limiters) and deliver a classic knee sound all its own.Specifications * Freq. response is 2 Hz to 160 kHz in clean audio mode (+0, -3 dB). Response is shaped in distortion modes (Dist 2, Dist 3). * Dynamic range 110 dB from max. output to min. output in 1:1 mode. Greater than 100 dB signal to noise in distort 3 mode. * Distortion ranges between .02% and 20% depending on distortion mode and release times set on front panel. * DC coupled output - High quality input caps. * Input impedance is 20K Ohms, Output impedance is * Time constants - Attack range 50uS - 50mS. Release range .05 sec to 3.5 seconds, normal modes and up to 20 seconds in 10:1 opto mode. Time constants are dependant on ratio. * Metal Chassis - single height 1.75 high, 10 deep, 19 wide. * Shipping info - 12.1 lbs mono, 24.2 lbs Stereo pair. Mono box dimensions 22.5 x 18.5 x 3 1/4. Stereo Pair box dimensions 22.5 x 18.5 x 6 1/4

The ultimate ´´color box”. As a 500-series follow-up to the Portico 5042, the 542 delivers the same thick, musical simulation of tape while drastically enhancing creative control via a number of new features. In addition to the the ´´true tape” circuitry – great for bringing out 3rd-order harmonics – the 542 incorporates a soft-clip circuit that tames the harshest sources and enhances 2nd-order harmonics, a variable and versatile Silk/Texture circuit for three transformer tones in one, and a wet/dry control to blend in the perfect amount of saturation.The 542’s ´´True Tape” emulation circuit provides the nostalgic rounding and compression usually only achieved by the use of tape, and can offset the harshness often found in digital recordings. Unlike digital emulations, the ´´True Tape” drive circuit works by feeding a custom-designed transformer acting as a ´´record head”, which in turn is coupled to a correctly equalized replay amplifier. As the voltage rises on the ´´record head”, saturation increases, and a soft clip circuit engages at higher levels to round off peak transients. The sound of the tape circuit can be further modified with selectable 15 / 30 IPS modes and a pre/post-tape blend control. In addition to the tape circuit, the 542 also has the variable Silk & Texture circuitry developed for the Portico II series modules, which allows the engineer to fine-tune the harmonic ratio and tonality on the output transformer.Getting the Most Out of the 542While in the olden days, tape’s non-linearity was generally looked upon as more of a curse than a ´´feature”, the advent of digital systems that operate in a completely linear fashion has made many appreciate the quirks of non-linear audio processing. Unlike linear designs, non-linear devices require the user to actively experiment with gain staging to find the ´´sweet spot” of the circuit. Although this requires a small amount of effort on part of the engineer, if used properly, the effect can add a dynamic aspect to performances that can enhance the impact of a song.The non-linearity in the 542’s ´´True Tape” circuitry and Saturation control necessitate taking note of both drive and input levels. How levels are staged into the 542’s tape circuit can significantly impact tone, depending on the position of the saturation control and the drive level on the tape circuit. As saturation is increased, low frequency compensation is decreased, and at a drive level of 5 the soft clipper enters the circuit. Finding the best balance point between low frequency response, total harmonic distortion, and desired soft clipping require playing with a combination of the saturation, trim and blend controls, and may also include using dynamics processing and proper gain staging before the 542.As a rough guide, we recommend starting with an input signal from around 2-10dBu and applying saturation, 15 / 30 IPS, Silk, and blend to taste. However, it always behooves the engineer to experiment with the balance between the pre-tape signal level and the level of the saturation control to find the best results for each source.To get a better idea of what is happening at different saturation and ´´Tape Head” levels, look through the frequency response and THD by frequency response graphs in the Technical Specifications section at the end of the manual.Also, like a real tape machine, the flux loops in the ´´True Tape” circuitry can pick up signals from strong nearby magnetic fields (The most likely sources are nearby power supplies, power amplifiers and computer monitors). Although we have shielded both the unit as a whole and the tape circuit to minimize stray inductance, if you have issues with hum when engaging the tape circuit, try moving the 542 to other spots away from magnetic field radiators until the hum subsides.Adding TextureBoth Silk modes are modified and fine tuned by the ´´Texture” control. By manipulating the Texture control, the amount of Silk can be changed from essentially absent, to roughly four times the amount of coloration found in Silk from the original Portico Series. With Silk / Texture engaged, the distortion characteristic and harmonic content of the unit are very reminiscent of many of Rupert’s vintage class-A designs. These controls add another realm of tonal control to the 542, and should be explored creatively in conjunction with the ´´True Tape” for best effect.Designed for 500 Series by Mr. Rupert...
