As its name implies, Thermionic Culture makes pure valve equipment exclusively, with a range including microphone preamplifiers, compressors, summing mixers, distortion units and, of course, equalisers. The Swift is a two-channel equaliser that’s a replacement for the three-channel Freebird EQ. That was a 4U, half-rack unit, designed to be part of a modular system alongside the similarly sized Nightingale mic-pre; The Swift is a more conventionally sized 3U 19-inch rackmount unit.

It's the MusicTech Mobile Music issue! With the iOS platform, you can get versions of everything music-production related, and we feature the best of them in the new issue of MusicTech. We've broken it down into five categories: DAWs, Synths, Interfaces, DJ/Beats and Sound Design – Martin Delaney guides us through it all. Also in this issue we have reviews of Reason 9 plus gear from Thermionic Culture, AKG and ROLI, and software from IKM and iZotope. There's modular news and reviews of Euroracks from Studio Electronics and AJH plus tutorials on songwriting, compression and using Ableton Link. An issue not to be missed!
