  • Louder Than Liftoff is proud to present the Silver Bullet - Void Corp Edition in a sleek matte black anodized aesthetic. This limited edition version of drBill's Stereo Tone-Amp offers all the same features of the original Silver Bullet

    MOJO Amps + Tone Shaping = Tone-Amp™

    The Silver Bullet represents a new, innovative class of hardware designed to infuse missing analog mojo into your digital world. MOJO Amps capturing the vibe of vintage American and British consoles are coupled with a musical results-driven set of tone shaping features. Together they create a Tone-Amp capable of handling all mixing, tracking, and microphone preamp duties.

    Integrated signal routing functionality not only enhances creativity and workflow, but also makes the Silver Bullet a single unit solution for the modern hybrid studio.

    The Silver Bullet is very effective at introducing desirable analog artifacts (i.e. 'mojo') into digitally produced mixes without expensive summing solutions, consoles, or never-ending chains of emulation plugins. The Silver Bullet was designed to enhance and shape tracks to sound like a record during every phase of audio production from composition to the final mixdown.

    1. Tone-Amp analog Mix and Tracking processing modes with dedicated I/O
    2. 'A' and 'N' cascading MOJO Amp circuit topologies inspired by classic American and British consoles from the 70's
    3. Mix and Tracking Modes allows both Mix processing and Overdub / Tracking processing without any re-patching of cables or need for patch bays
      1. Mix: process the 2-bus, bounce digitally recorded tracks and stems, combine with a DAW controlled summing system, or use with a passive summing in Folcrom mode.
      2. Track: connect after your mic preamp, synth, sampler, etc.
    4. Mic Modes allow Silver Bullet to function as a fully featured stereo microphone preamplifier with Polarity Reverse and 48V phantom power
    5. Stereo signal path throughout with single set of easily recallable detented controls
    6. Visually stunning 20-segment stereo high resolution output meter
    7. MOJO LEDs provide visual feedback of signal level intensity
    8. Tone shaping EQ suite designed specifically for mix sweetening and broad stroke tone sculpting of individual tracks
      1. Tight: 12 dB/oct, 20 Hz high pass filter with slight resonance at 40 Hz for tightening bottom end and increasing low frequency headroom
      2. Baxandall Tone EQ, +/-9 dB boost/cut
        1. LF: Pultec-inspired Subsonic (30 Hz) and Bass (60 Hz) frequencies
        2. HF: Presence and Air frequencies
      3. Vintage: softens high frequency response to emulate vintage British consoles
    9. Custom wound transformers
    10. Class-A biased op amps
      1. All circuit components chosen by ear for maximum MOJO
      2. Includes robust external universal (100-240 VAC, 50/60 Hz) power supply and IEC power cord (EU version has both CEE7/7 and UK power cords)

      Made by tone geeks for tone geeks. Designed and assembled in Silicon Valley, California.

    11. The Void Corp Board of Trustees has agreed to take orders for a very limited number of units that are scheduled to begin shipping on or before 2/16/18, if your order was placed in December or January.

      When will I be charged for my order?

      You will be charged when you submit your order at checkout.

      When will you be ship my order?

      The Void Corp Board of Trustees  will process and ship new orders within 5-7 business days, in the order in which they are received.

      How much progress have the droids made building this awesome new product so far?

      As of 2/12/18 completed units are steadily rolling off the assembly line.  We shipped the first batch of backorders on 2/9/18.  The droids are continuing to perform mechanical integration, calibration, testing of new units.  Once they complete assembly they will then box up the product for safe shipping to your studio.  Since this is a limited edition product, please note that it will not be offered on an a consistent ongoing basis. 

      How long does it take to manufacture a product like the Silver Bullet?

      It generally takes 4-6 weeks to have PCBs made and assembled, 4 weeks to have the faceplates and metal enclosures fabricated and finished, and about 2 weeks for final assembly and calibration. Once all that is complete (about 6-8 weeks total), we box up the units and ship them to our fulfillment center where they will be sent out to customers all over the planet.

      Can I upgrade my silver-faced Silver Bullet to a Void Corp Edition?

      The Void Corp Board of Trustees does not sanction making these exclusive features available as upgrades to existing Silver Bullet owners. They will be unique to these limited edition units. N o principled supporter of the Rogue Planet Command mission should ever consider going over to the dark side of Void Corp. User modifications will also void your warranty.

    Policies & FAQ

    14-day No Hassle Return Policy

    Try out our gear in your studio and, if within 14 days you're not satisfied, let us know and we'll issue a refund.

    To be eligible for a return, your item must be "like new" and in the same condition that you received it. It must also be in the original packaging with all original materials (power supply, power cord, product card, etc.).  Please refrain from racking 19 inch rackmount gear during this trial period so that the faceplate and enclosure don't get scratched.

    To complete your return, just give us a call or shoot us an email, and we'll send you instructions for packing up your unit and shipping it back.  Please note that you will be responsible for return shipping costs and we ask that you insure the unit for its full retail value to protect against loss or damage.  Once we receive and inspect the unit we will issue a refund for the purchase price less the cost of shipping.  Units received in any condition other than "like new" may be subject to a restocking fee.

    World-Class Shipping

    We ship to (just about) any address in the world via USPS, FedEx, and DHL Express. When you place an order, we will estimate shipping and delivery dates for you based on the quantity of your items and the shipping option you choose. Once payment is approved, in stock products will ship out from Rogue Planet Command within 2-3 business days .  We ship on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.  Once an order ships you will be sent tracking information via email and/or Facebook Messenger (if selected at checkout).  Please coordinate with the shipping company to have your package held for pickup if you know you will not be home when the package is expected to arrive.

    Please note that the shipping rates for many items we sell are dimensional weight-based. To reflect the policies of the shipping companies we use, weights may be rounded up to the next full pound.  Also note that international customers are required to pay all import duties and taxes required by their respective countries.  When filling out customs forms we declare the actual purchase price.  Please do not ask us to declare lower values.

    If you reside outside of North America, we highly recommend DHL Express when ordering a Silver Bullet for the quickest delivery and with zero customs headaches.

    We require a signature for all Silver Bullet orders to help ensure you safely receive the package.

    FAQ

    When can I expect to receive a response to my email or phone call?

    Most emails or phone calls will receive a friendly reply within 24 hours, if not within just a few hours.  However, sometimes we get sucked into the glorious nebula of designing and building products.  Or need to do laundry, shop for groceries, or sleep.  We appreciate your patience as we balance the demands of our intergalactic commitments, and try to enjoy time off on the weekends.  Please don't be upset if an email you sent on Friday evening doesn't get returned until Monday.

    How much will it cost to ship my order overseas?

    Our shopping cart has a shipping calculator that is configured to estimate shipping to anywhere in the world.  All you have to do is add a product to the cart and then click the cart icon in the upper right corner of your browser.  At that point you can select your country, province, and enter your postal code.  A list of available shipping options will be displayed after you click Calculate Shipping.  As mentioned above, international customers are responsible for paying all import duties and taxes for their respective countries.

    What shipping option do you recommend for European customers?

    If you are ordering a Silver Bullet or 500 series module, we highly recommend that you select DHL Express shipping.  DHL acts as the customs broker and offers exceptionally quick door-to-door service.  We've been seeing packages arrive in the UK in 4-5 days.  There is no hand off with local postal services like there is with USPS so you will know where your package is every minute of the day by accessing the tracking information. They will require you to pay all customs and import taxes before delivering the package to your door.

    My country charges high import taxes.  Can you adjust the customs value to help me out?

    Sorry, but no.  As a rule, we declare the actual purchase price.  

    Do you accept wire transfers, ACH payments, or Paypal as forms of payment?

    We only accept payment through our online store using major credit and debit cards at this time.

    How are you guys able to sell products of this quality level at these impossibly affordable prices?

    We simply reject the notion that a middleman like a dealer or distributor needs to come between the guy that designs and builds the gear and the artist that uses it.  By adopting a direct sales model we have been able to pass that savings onto our customers.  Do you really want to pay 30% more for your gear?  All we ask in return is that you make lots of great music and help spread the word about our company and products.

    Can I have my favorite pro audio dealer get me a Silver Bullet?

    Sure, if you want to pay more money for our products.  See the question above.  Our pricing model does not allow for typical dealer margins.  Really.  If you'd like to order 10 Silver Bullets we'd be happy to give you a sweet discount though.

    I just bought a used unit from some dude online.  Can I have the seller send it to you first to check out?

    As a policy, we decline to get in the middle of third party transactions on used gear.  If you receive the unit and it requires repair please contact us and we can go over service options.  

    What in the bloody galaxy is Void Corp?

    Void Corp is a character in the Louder Than Liftoff universe.  Some of our products are made as limited edition Void Corp versions with a black aesthetic.  Click the link for more info.

    It would be really cool if you guys had t-shirts.  Can you make me one?

    Yes.

     

    Louder Than Liftoff reserves the right to refuse selling our products to anyone that is hateful, sexist, bigoted, racist, homophobic, or just a meanie in general.  Be kind to each other and the planet.
