THE LAUNCHER DELUXE
In a world full of microphone boosters and boxes, there is a surprising lack of options that offer unique and colorful sounds in stereo. The Launcher Deluxe changes that. This stereo inline mic preamp and line-level saturator expands on the winning formula of the original Launcher to give engineers and artists an indispensable tool they can use anywhere.

Soyuz (союз) is the Russian word for "union," We believe the union between an artist and their microphone is profound, so we build products that artists can rely on to access the full potential of their creative vision.
and Soyuz Microphones is the result of a union between Eastern manufacturing prowess and Western design sensibilities.

I put it [the 017 TUBE] up against my best tube U47 – which is my all time favourite mic... What was crazy was just how close sounding your mic was to the best mic in the world... I would definitely say that I would use this mic over many others in practical use.

Producer of Nirvana, Pixies, Breeders

Producer and author of Elliot Smith, Kurt Vile
