    – Albin Johnsén, ISA och Buster Moe först ut när Corite öppnar fan-funding plattform för alla
    Stockholm, 2 oktober, 2019; Corite, den första fan-funding plattformen av sitt slag, lanseras idag. Tjänsten gör det möjligt för vem som helst att investera i artisters kommande verk och vara en del av resan – från den första mixen till en potentiell hitlåt. Albin Johnsén, ISA, Buster Moe, Amanda Alexander och Penthox är bland de första artisterna ut på Corite, som nu öppnar upp för alla.
    Till följd av musikindustrins digitaliserings-boom har ännu ett skifte gjort sig synligt där ny teknik utökar artisters valmöjligheter och kontroll. Svenska Corite, som backas av bl.a. Danny Saucedo, lanserar nu ett nytt alternativ för artister att bygga sina karriärer tillsammans med sina fans. På den digitala fan-funding-plattformen kan fans stötta artister genom att investera i deras kommande verk.
    – Musikfans kan nu spela en aktiv roll i artistens resa och belönas för det på längre sikt. Vi vill stärka den nya generationen av skapare genom att involvera deras fans på en ny nivå och samtidigt ge dem friheten att behålla full kontroll över sitt arbete, kommenterar Mattias Tengblad, CEO och medgrundare av Corite.

    På Corites platform behåller artisten alla rättigheter och bestämmer själv sitt värde samt hur stor procentandel den vill dela med sig av. Från fansens perspektiv blir det en möjlighet att stötta sina favoritartister, hitta nya talanger och dela framgången.
    Albin Johnséns kommande singel ”Jag håller av dig” feat. Finess, ISAs ”Who the Hell”, Buster Moes ”The Story We Used to Tell”, Amanda Alexanders “Modern Lovers” och Penthoxs ”Bottom” finns nu på Corite.
    – Digitaliseringen har förändrat allt och steg för steg bygger vi ett nytt musikuniversum genom sociala medier, digital distribution, och nu även fan-funding som ger oss artister möjlighet att förverkliga våra låtar tillsammans med de som alltid varit viktigast oss - våra fans, kommenterar Albin Johnsén.
    Fans och investerare kommer att vara de största supportrarna av låten när den släpps. Corite kommer att, genom olika gamifierade funktioner, göra samarbetet mellan fans och artist både spännande och roligt. “Backarna kommer inte bara att göra en monetär insats, de kommer att boosta låtarna och skapa hits,” säger Emil Angervall, COO och medgrundare av Corite.
    Corite - så fungerar det:
    1. Artisten laddar upp en kampanj inför ett nytt låtsläpp – sätter beskrivning, värdering och procentandel – och Corite publicerar denna för fansen.
    2. Fansen investerar valfritt belopp i kampanjer de tror på och får därmed en procentsats av låtens framtida streaming-intäkter.
    3. När musiken streamas får artisterna och fansen betalt samtidigt. De kan hjälpas åt att dela låten och tillsammans följa framgångarna via streaming-data från de populära tjänsterna.
    Besök corite.com för att komma igång.
    Artist-kommentarer:
    – Fan-funding kan hjälpa mig att förverkliga mina kreativa visioner, tillsammans med mina fans. Det betyder att jag kan vara 100% mig själv på ett sätt som jag definitivt tror är vägen till framgång för artister idag, säger ISA.
    – Det har blivit viktigare än någonsin att bygga plattformar, som t.ex. sociala medier, där vi kan kommunicera direkt med fansen. Corite tar det verkligen till en ny nivå där vi förs närmare fansen än någonsin och även kan dela framgångarna tillsammans, säger Buster Moe.
    – Utan fans, inga artister. Fansen kommer alltid att vara grunden till att artister fullföljer sina drömmar och fortsätta dela sitt skapande med världen. Att fans och artister nu kan teama upp och jobba tillsammans är en riktig game-changer, säger Danny Saucedo.
    Om Corite: 
    Corite är den första plattformen som gör det möjligt för fans att investera i artister och vara en del av den kreativa resan från den första mixen till en potentiell hitlåt. När musiken streamas på Spotify eller Apple Music får artisterna och fansen betalt på samma gång, baserat på sin insats i låten. På så vis får artister större ekonomisk frihet och en helt unik möjlighet att sprida sin musik via sina fans. Corite grundades av Mattias Tengblad och Emil Angervall, båda med över 20 års erfarenhet av management och digitalisering hos bl.a. Universal Music Group där de lanserade distributionstjänsten Spinnup och playlist-nätverket Digster. Investerarna inkluderar Eastate, ägt av familjen bakom East Capital Group (investerare i Spotify och X5), affärsänglar som artisten Danny Saucedo och Sofie Grant (Emerge & Co, fd. Spotify), samt investerargruppen Tagehus. Bolaget har sitt säte på Kungsholmen i Stockholm. Mer info: corite.com

    BRNO, CZECH REPUBLIC: software applications, software effects, and hardware processors developer Audified is proud to announce availability of ToneSpot Electric Pro — this time targeting its innovative ToneSpot one-shot channel processing plug-in concept at easily enhancing electric guitar tones as another aptly-named Swiss Army Knife-style solution fit for working with the heaviest of genres through to more traditional ones, regardless of whatever combinations of guitar amps, pedals, or plug-ins are already being used in the tricky and time-consuming craft of pursuing electric guitar processing perfection — as of September 27…

    Anyone who has ever tried to ape an exceptional-sounding electric guitar tone that they have heard on one of their favourite artist recordings should surely appreciate how tricky and time-consuming quest finding the ‘Holy Guitar Grail’ can be. After all, acquiring an awesome guitar and amp combo, magnificent microphones, superb-sounding stompboxes, and outstanding outboard effects can be a costly business — before trying to perfect putting those purchases into practice! Perhaps getting hold of some of the many magical guitar amp- and authentic-sounding stompbox- simulating plug-ins out there today better suits some aspiring artists and producers as an achievable alternative. As amazing as both ways of working can clearly sound, more often than not, that sought-after exceptional-sounding electric guitar tone proves to be beyond reach when recorded and mixed with the rest of the band. Even endless tweaking fails to yield the desired result — really frustrating for anyone, novice or otherwise.
    Why? Well, answering that is easy: electric guitars can take a lot of processing. Put it another way: with many of today’s genres, giving guitars the treatment they need to musically shine is key to a mix’s success, so it is important to get the guitar sound just right. Reality dictates that guitars are often having to vie for attention with several layers of other instruments that can clash if left unchecked within the confines of a muddled mix. More often than not, it could be that the recordings themselves sound too thin, sterile, or harsh due to a lack of audio engineering skill. Similarly, bringing back overly muddy- or dark-sounding guitar recordings from the brink of disaster can prove problematic.
    Put it this way: what is really required are appropriate-sounding guitar tones that can cut through. They need to be punchy and fat sounding, yet simultaneously show a great deal of clarity and tightness. That’s not all! At times, guitars still need to sound very natural — even if heavily processed. Putting all this into practice is far from easy, evidenced by the fact that professional audio engineers often go to great lengths in pursuit of building an awesome-sounding tone in a well-stocked recording studio. So chances are that tone benefitted from some seriously heavy lifting to get to where it needed to be, blending several re-amping chains with copious quantities of filtering, equalisation, saturation, and even some multi-band processing, perhaps. The top engineers even go as far as running the signal through their complicated chains two or three times in series until producers and artists are 100% satisfied with the result!
    Results like those seriously heavy-lifted, awesome-sounding tones have hitherto been harder to come by for those without access to such well- stocked recording studios. Saying that, though, even if taking the arguably more cost-effective — certainly space-saving — ITB (in-the-box) recording route using a computer, it is not enough to simply run electric guitars through a real tube amp or guitar amp simulation plug-in to achieve the standards heard on today’s professional productions. The truth of the matter is that a ton of plug-ins are required, and that eats away at a significant portion of CPU (Central Processing Unit) power.
    Thanks to Audified’s audacity, however, there is now a simpler solution... stand up and take a bow, ToneSpot Electric Pro! Pursuing electric guitar processing perfection needs not necessarily be the tricky and time-consuming craft it once was with just this one processing plug-in taking care of all the musical magic as the hitherto missing ‘magic bullet’ — truly the key to success since it bears bountiful tricks on tap that draw from a deep well of extensive engineering know-how, yet balances that with much in the way of creative freedom.
    Fortunately for all, Audified’s ToneSpot Electric Pro promo video simply says it like it is: “Swiss Army Knife for all tone hunters... Best mixing tricks for electric guitar processing... Monstrous processing power and flexibility... Musically labeled controls... Works perfectly with any amp simulation or real tube amp.”
    Simply speaking, then, ToneSpot Electric Pro improves the tone, no matter what amps, stompboxes, or plug-ins its users are already using for their electric guitar processing. Putting it to the test should surely prove to be an ear-opening experience for anyone adding it to their tone-hunting plug- in collection! And anyone seeking something simpler still could consider Audified’s alternative ToneSpot Electric Express offering, featuring the same processing power as its bigger brother, but with a reduced control count. Clearly, pursuing electric guitar processing perfection is indisputably no longer the tricky and time-consuming craft it once was — thanks to Audified’s audacity!

    ToneSpot Electric Pro is available to purchase for a time-limited introductory promo price of $49.00 USD until October 18, 2019 — rising thereafter to $99.00 USD — from Audified’s online shop here: https://shop.audified.com/products/tonespot-electric-pro
    ToneSpot Electric Pro can be directly downloaded as an AAX, AU, VST2, VST3, 32- and 64-bit native plug-in for MacOS (10.9 and above) and Windows (7, 8, and 10) — alongside a demo version — from Audified here: https://services.audified.com/download (Note that all Audified’s ToneSpot series plug-ins are serial number-protected, so no iLok is required.)

    September 26, 2019 - IK Multimedia announces the Hammond B-3X tonewheel organ virtual instrument. Created in close collaboration with Hammond USA and Suzuki Music Corp. of Japan, along with top Hammond artists, it meticulously recreates the sound, controls and entire effects signal path of the legendary Hammond B-3. This comprehensive approach offers a level of realism and detail that will satisfy most the discriminating B-3 fans while also offering an affordable introduction to the unique world of tonewheel organs that can be enjoyed by all levels of players.

    IK's industry-leading modelling techniques were employed to deliver fine details and nuances that passed the discerning ears of the Hammond Organ Company in Chicago. In addition to its authentic organ sound, this new instrument offers a full-rig chain including stomp effects, an extended version of IK's Leslie® Collection with a rotary cabinet with mix-and-match amp and cabinet models plus four microphones, a parallel guitar amp with 4x12 cabinet, a mixer and three studio post effects.
    Available for Mac/PC as a stand-alone application and as a virtual instrument plug-in, the Hammond B-3X offers plug and play convenience for both recording and performing.
    Hammond USA Executive Vice President Peter Nguyen shared, "We're excited about the very first official Hammond/Leslie Virtual Instrument, and the partnership with IK Multimedia which made it happen. The teams certainly captured the qualities that have made the Hammond Organ an essential part of music for the past 85 years."
    It's all in the details
    True to the hardware original, Hammond B-3X begins with 91 tonewheels, which are based on well-maintained Hammond organs that IK studied in locations around the world. These free-running tonewheels are mixed in real-time based on the notes played and drawbar levels, for authentic realism.
    Hammond B-3X can be fine-tuned using IK's detailed models of the original settings, controls and circuits, which were all approved by the Hammond Organ Company. Users can employ tonal filtering, select the independent key click, and engage the iconic Hammond percussion and chorus-vibrato circuits with advanced controls.
    For deeper exploration and realistic touches, Hammond fans will appreciate a familiar simulation of the effects of "ageing" components to control tonal balance, generator leakage and crosstalk, and the chorus circuit's presence boost.

    True tone, real experience
    All the controls are designed to recreate the exact experience of playing a classic, hardware B-3 organ - from the order of the chorus/vibrato settings to the placement of the percussion switches. Some additional features have been included as well, for modern convenience.
    The drawbars update in real-time when the inverted drawbar settings keys are selected, allowing users to save 24 custom drawbar settings per preset. For live use, a "Controls" view hides the keyboard and enlarges the drawbars and switches for less distraction while playing. MIDI assignments for modern Hammond digital organs are also included, making it plug-and-play easy to perform with everything at arm's reach.
    Extended stomp box effects
    The organ feeds a 5-unit pedalboard in the STOMPS section that features overdrive, graphic EQ, stomp box-style chorus-vibrato, wah wah and spring reverb. Derived from IK's award-winning AmpliTube and T-RackS software, these effects were carefully chosen and arranged for easy recreation of the widest range of iconic tonewheel organ sounds. They can also be assigned to MIDI control for on-stage use.
    Real Leslie® sound
    The signal is then sent to a CABS section that includes a choice of real Leslie amps and speakers that can be mixed and matched, along with a parallel guitar amp and 4x12 cabinet. Using technology derived from IK's award-winning AmpliTube 4 amplifier modelling, combined with an extended version of IK's Leslie® Collection, Hammond B-3X's cabinet section offers a massive range of sound-shaping option tabs. They include:
    Setup - lets users fine tune the Leslie's slow and fast speed settings - including acceleration and deceleration - and adjust the mic distance and configuration Leslie Amp - offers a selection of five Leslie power amps (or a power amp modelling off switch) and two guitar power amps to use in any of five Leslie cabinets, with full control over gain, EQ and volume Leslie EQ - enables the rotary speaker to be shaped with high-pass, low-pass and parametric mid EQ Guitar Amp - adds a parallel guitar amp derived from AmpliTube into the mix for use with popular rock tones used by top rock and blues players; offers full tone-shaping controls and spring reverb Mixer - blends the sound of the Leslie, with independent volume and panning of both the horn and drum mics, the parallel guitar amp, and the DI organ sound for unprecedented tonal flexibility Add professional polish
    Lastly, Hammond B-3X offers three rackmount studio effects derived from IK's T-RackS Mixing and Mastering Workstation to add a final, professional touch.
    IK's Limiter 76 FET-based compressor offers an iconic, timeless sound; the EQ-81 adds classic console tone-shaping and warmth; and a digital reverb adds a pristine sense of space.
    Pricing and availability
    Hammond B-3X is available from the IK Multimedia online store and from authorized IK dealers worldwide for a special introductory price of €/$199.99 (regular pricing will be €/$299.99). IK customers with qualifying registered products with a retail value of €/$99.99 or more will be eligible for special introductory crossgrade pricing of €/$149.99 (regular crossgrade pricing will be €/$199.99).

    Neu-Anspach – September 24th, 2019 – The Adam Hall Group announces immediate availability of the new Gravity Touring Series – the first ever stand series specifically developed for the professional rental market. The robust, fully metal stands impress with durable designs that withstand the toughest conditions. The Gravity Touring Series also features captive metal adjustment knobs and other functional details that make "on the road" touring life significantly more efficient.
     
    The Touring Series by Gravity is built to last and is aimed at professional customers from the rental and touring sector who naturally have high demands for their stands every day. Therefore, Gravity has focused on maximum stability, well thought-out functionality, and innovative details for the Touring Series. Features such as captive full-metal adjustment knobs and effective boom attachment with just a ¾ turn allows the designs to stand out from comparable models. All the detailed solutions are based on countless hands-on experiences and feedback from professionals in the rental and touring sector – from stage hands to warehouse staff and technical directors of large productions.

     
    Detailed Solutions for Professionals
    The Touring Series retains the tried and tested basic concept of a stand but builds on it with many welcome and practical improvements. For example, the attachment knobs of the Gravity Touring Series do not screw out completely, only to a fixed point. The fact that the knobs cannot be removed without tools means that they don't get lost over time or during the rush of live performances or touring. At the same time, the boom of the stand can be tightened with just one turn – a significant time saver in the busy rental and touring business. When it comes to height adjustment, the developers at Gravity also took to heart feedback from rental professionals and developed an ergonomically optimized grip, which is easier to grasp.
     
    The new Gravity Touring Series is available now. Available at series' launch are the TMS 4321 B Touring Series Tripod Mic Stand with standard boom, the TMS 4322 B Touring Series Tripod Mic Stand with telescopic boom and the TSP 5212 LB Touring Series Speaker Stand with auto lockpin.

    AudioFuse 8Pre comes with the AudioFuse Creative Suite, accurately recreated vintage preamps and legendary studio effects that will give your music that triple-A studio sound.
     
    Meet all your recording needs
    The Arturia AudioFuse 8Pre is an incredibly useful tool for many situations that arise in modern music production:
    Drum recording: 8 channels of premium audio, so you don’t have to choose which drum mic gets the best preamp. They’re all the best! Using boutique mics: huge gain and no noise means you can crank the levels and still have a pristine audio signal. Live recording: 8 superb preamps let you track a whole band with the best audio quality around. Live performing: 8 outputs let you give the sound tech more options, so you can sound your best when you hit the stage. Creative recording: channels 1 and 2 feature dedicate effect insert points, giving you more creative scope during tracking. Expanding your setup: if you already own an interface you love, AudioFuse 8Pre can add another 8 ins and 8 outs through ADAT. Mix with confidence: the included software plug-ins are modelled on some of the most iconic studio outboard ever made from the 60s to the present day. Master with accuracy: absolute flat response and no noise at all volumes, across all frequencies, both on headphone, monitor, and line outputs. "The 8Pre is an amazing piece of kit, giving you 8 of the best preamps on the market for a great price.” Martin Dutasta, the man in charge of Arturia’s audio interfaces, is excited that musicians and producers all around the world will soon be able to use the AudioFuse 8Pre. “It's the kind of thing that every engineer or producer will have a use for, and I hope people will love making it part of their creative setups."

    Den 5 oktober är det dags för final i Unity Talang 2019, Västerbottens första och enda talangtävling i urban musik för ungdomar. Finalen hålls på Hamnmagasinet och hostas av det sydafrikanska hiphopkollektivet Heal the Hood som också kör som mellanakt. Finalisterna kommer göra upp om ett förstapris på ett musikstipendium och studiotid.
    Den 5:e oktober kl. 18.00 är det dags för final av årets upplaga av Unity Talang. Under våren genomfördes två deltävlingar. En på Ålidhem (8:e juni) och en på Ersboda (15:e juni) där deltagarna fick uppträda med sin musik inför en jury. Från deltävlingarna valdes sju stycken finalister ut som nu kommer att tävla i finalen om ett musikstipendium på 3000 kronor och studiotid på Zebra Studios. Artisterna som valts ut är Sarah Kerubino, Dazy, Salle, Winuka, Mohammed Jay-Z, Sonja Bygdebo och Sumeya som alla återigen ska ställa sig på scen inför juryn.

    Finalen får också finbesök av det sydafrikanska hiphopkollektivet Heal the Hood som kommer att agera host (konferencier) och också stå för mellanakten medan juryn överlägger. Heal the Hood är ett konstnärligt kollektiv och en ideell hjälporganisation vars syfte är skapa nätverk för unga artister nationellt och internationellt. De gör de bl.a genom att erbjuda aktiviteter för ungdomar för att höja deras självkänsla och vilja att delta i ett demokratiskt samhälle. Heal the Hood kommer till Umeå för att hosta Unity Talang och under hela finalveckan kommer en insamling att hållas för att stötta deras arbete. Insamlingen kommer oavkortat gå till föreningen som kommer att köpa en buss som ska användas i deras ungdomsverksamhet. Dagen efter finalen den 5:e oktober kommer de även hålla ett nätverksmöte i Umeå för ungdomar för att prata om framtida utbyten mellan Umeå, Västerbotten och Kapstaden, Sydfrika.
    Unity Talang är en talangtävling i Urban musik för ungdomar mellan 15-25 år. Den startades på initiativ av Sara Stenman går under Studieförbundet Vuxenskolans Unitysatsning och har till mål att inspirerar ungdomar som håller på med urban musik, (dvs hiphop, reggae, R&B och soul) och skapa en plattform för dem att fortsätta utveckla sitt skapande från. Tävlingen genomfördes för första gången under 2018 och vinnarna då var syskonduon Maya & Mimi Arctaedius. Maya har sedan dess släppt två singlar och vunnit P4 Nästa Västerbotten. En annan deltagare, William Lysachov Forsell fick ta emot Norrlandsoperans Urban North-stipendium för sitt engagemang i urban kultur.
