Thermionic Culture - The Kite

Not a sigle tread about this one around.
It appears to be out and shipping.. has no one here yet grabbed a unit and tested it?

would love to hear some thoughts and user experiences.

cheers

We have one. During mix, it's at the end of our 2bus chain for the last finishing touches. The AIR is great.

One is a summing mixer and the other is an EQ. So no summing on the Kite. The extra drive and distortion is available on both, of course, courtesy the red "Attitude" knob. Both units are very clean sounding before activating the attitude knob.

Indeed the whole philosophy of Thermionic Culture is to use tubes because they are so clean and so fast sounding. Much faster than solid state.
