Vintech Audio x73i - Power Supply

Member for

Hello everybody. I purchased a Vintech audio x73i, and I have a question for experts...
Power supply is for 120v/60Hz; but in our country is 220v... So i need to buy a transformer from 220v to 110v. My question is; if anybody knows that's the power consumption of "Vintech power supply"? ... transformer must be 100 watt... 300watt ... 600watt? ...
and by the way "Vintech Power Supply" is a pulse transformer or classic?(Electron).
this is important when choosing a transformer 220v to 110v.

p.s. sorry for the translation

Vintech x73i

Hi this is my first post and I want to thank you guys in advance for any feedback. I'm certain I'll learn a lot.

I do voiceovers and this is my mic chain. Miktek c7e/Vintech x73i/Purple Audio mc77.

Of course the Vintech does not have nput/output meters. I was told by the manufacturer in order to set up the x73i properly, crank the output volume and to adjust the input level selector. The issue I have is that the output level that I arrive at once this is done, is very low going into the mc77. Does this matter?

Neve vs Vintech

I ran into an old engineer friend last night at a gig, he had just returned from doing some tracking work at a studio in Florida, and of course, the talk eventually got around to gear... in particular, to preamps.

He mentioned that on the latest project he was working on, that he had used several Vintech 573's (500 Series stuff) on a variety of tracks, mostly vocals. (The Vintech 573 is a "clone" module of the famous Neve 1073 preamp.)

Advice for new front end ! (saffire56, 4-710, isa2, vintech273)

Hi guys,

Here's my new plan :
-Audio interface : Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56 (which is gone on warranty right now)
-Premps/converters : Next buy a Universal Audio 4-710 (which have 4 preamps + 8 converters)
-Added Preamp to the 4-710 : Focusrite ISA Two (which I already have) (2 preamps)
-Added Preamp to the 4-710 : buy later a Vintech 273 later on (2 preamps)

I sampled 15 snare drums using high end gear (Vintech, Lavry...) !

Hello guys, here is a new product : my snare drum collection !

I sampled a 15 snare drums collection, using high end gear and my background as a drummer. You'll find multi-velocities samples (4 rimshot hits, 3 medium hits, and 3 soft hits) in WAV format (top and bottom snare) for each one. You'll also find the same files in .TCI (Slate Trigger) format.
All samples are natural, no post-processing involved.

Vintech Audio X73i + Matching Comp?

Member for

First post for me at Recording.Org. I recently puchased a Vintech X73i and I'd like to get some opinions/recommendations on a good compressor to match this unit.

I'm looking for something primarily for vocals + guits/bass as a secondary criteria.

I've researched the Sebatron Nitrous, Daking FET Comp2 and the Distressor EL8. This is the price range I'd like to stay within. Of course, if there's something a couple hundreds up or down, I'd still consider it.

Vintech X73,X73i,X81

I know the main diff on these is the EQ section. Do you guys think the X73 and specifically the X81 warrant the extra dough? Or could I get by with the X73i? Would I feel like Im missing something with the X73i and wish I had gotten the X81?

Would I use all the extra Q points and such to warrant the extra cost?

thanks fro your thoughts
