  2. Vienna, Austria (April 9, 2020) - Musician Derek Brown recently tested out an Austrian Audio OC818 microphone, using it to capture his unique style of saxophone playing – dubbed ‘BEATBoX SAX’. Part beatbox, part instrument-slap technique, and part saxophone playing, Brown has turned BEATBoX SAX into a phenomenon – his YouTube music videos and tutorials are enormously popular among saxophonists and music lovers alike, racking up over 150,000 Youtube subscriptions. Previously the director of jazz studies at Abilene Christian University for six years, Brown received his BM in Music Performance (Classical and Jazz) from Hope College in 2006, and his MM in Jazz Studies at the University of Cincinnati, College-Conservatory of Music in 2008. Crossing genres from jazz, to classical, to funk (and without using any looping or electronic effects), Brown’s unique playing style was born out of a love of blending musical genres. “I grew up with a very normal way of playing the saxophone,” he said. “I studied classical music and I started liking jazz. I went to university and I studied all the techniques and different ways of improvising. I was always feeling a bit lost, thinking ‘what’s my new thing to say on this?’ Am I a jazz musician? Am I a classical musician? Am I a pop musician?” Brown decided that he didn’t need to choose - the result being a unique blend of jazz and pop-style saxophone playing, combined with instrument-slapping techniques. Requiring a microphone that was up to the challenge, Brown tested an Austrian Audio OC818: “It was great; it is everything I look for in a mic,” he said. “I had a very quiet signal and it seemed to pick up all the different things I'm doing on the saxophone, which is very important because everything I do – even though it sounds like it’s being looped or has an electronic effect – it’s not, it’s all acoustic. So I need a microphone that is going to pick up every little detail, from the ring scratching that I’m doing, to all the intricate sounds coming out of the belt, and my voice. This was a perfect mic; it had a great sound to it. It seemed to produce a very natural-sounding saxophone.” Brown also likes that the OC818 microphones are handmade in Vienna: “I love the idea that these are being created in Austria,” he enthused. “I know it’s very easy to have things outsourced to other countries, so I love that this tradition is being continued. I can't wait to see what Austrian Audio comes up with next.” Handmade in Vienna, the OC818 is a multi-pattern dual-output condenser microphone equipped with a world-first: optional wireless control. At the heart of the range is the patent-pending, handmade CKR12 ceramic capsule, made to the same critical dimensions as the legendary CK12 capsules. However, the CKR12 goes further still, utilising a revolutionary new material offering far more stability, meaning every OC818 is inherently paired with any other OC818, or even Austrian Audio’s OC18 mic.
  3. HOLLYWOOD, CALIF. (April 9, 2020) — To support the community during social distancing, Fender continues to offer new users three months of complimentary lessons on Fender Play, the complete online learning app for guitar, bass and ukulele. After bringing these free lessons to everyone three weeks ago and an outpouring of support from over 150 artists like Jimmy Page, H.E.R., Brendon Urie, Ashley McBryde, Tash Sultana and Orville Peck, more than half a million people have signed up to access the app. To further share the power of music, Fender will now offer free lessons to the first 1 million users who sign up for the 3-month Fender Play giveaway. “We’re blown away by the overwhelming response to our three months of free guitar, bass, and ukulele lessons on Fender Play,” said Fender CEO Andy Mooney. "We started by providing complimentary lessons to the first 100,000, but quickly surpassed that number in just three days.” “With this new, current reality, it’s clear we need music now more than ever,” Mooney added. “Music has the power to connect us, create a sense of community, and most importantly, lift our spirits. We hope offering Fender Play to even more aspiring players allows them to explore their creativity and make some noise while we’re spending more time inside.” Fender Play makes it easier than ever to learn how to play with multi-genre, instructor-guided video lessons to assist those embarking on their musical journey. Designed with bite-sized learning in mind, it gives beginners everything they need to get playing songs by their favorite artists in minutes. Research has shown that playing an instrument promotes increased creativity, helps with alleviating stress, and boosts the immune system, among other benefits. Whether people are getting back into guitar after a hiatus, interested in learning a new skill, or trying out guitar for the first time, Fender hopes this giveaway will reinforce the myriad benefits that learning to play has on the mind and body. Since 1946, Fender helped build the guitar community by empowering individuals to play and create music. This includes supporting artists through initiatives like the Uncancelled Music Festival and the MusiCares® COVID-19 Relief Fund to support musicians and touring personnel in need. Whether it be dusting off an old guitar, learning a new skill or entertaining tiny hands, the brand hopes opening Fender Play up to 1 million users inspires and encourages even more people to harness the power of playing as the world continues to navigate a new normal. To sign up for a free 3 months of Fender Play, interested users can visit fender.com/playthrough to redeem a code and set up their account. Be sure to check ad blockers. Payment information is not required. There are no strings attached – just musiƒc. Once the code is redeemed, students can download the app via Google Play or the App Store and sign into their account. Additionally, Fender Play is available via web/desktop. Post social-distancing, Fender will offer these players a special discount on the app – including 10% off select gear on Fender.com – if they decide to continue their journey on Fender Play for another year. www.fender.com
  4. Iisalmi, Finland – April2020... Genelec – the global leader in professional loudspeakers – is now offering customers the option of a special RAW aluminium colour finish, available on a selection of the most popular models in its Studio, AV and Home Audio ranges. All the models feature the timeless Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE) design, developed by Genelec in close collaboration with leading industrial designer Harri Koskinen, and fashioned from recycled aluminium.The RAW versions require no painting and less finishing material than standard painted models – creating an even more environmentally friendly loudspeaker that allows the natural beauty of the enclosure’s raw aluminium to shine through, and gives each individual loudspeaker a unique look and feel. The models available are all two-way designs, and include the 8020, 8030 and 8040 nearfield studio monitors, the 4020, 4030 and 4040 installation loudspeakers, the new 4420 and 4430 Smart IP loudspeakers and the G Two, G Three and G Four home audio models. Genelec’s original use of aluminium enclosures dates back to 1996 with the launch of the 1029A nearfield model, with the distinctive curves of the revolutionary diecast MDEdesign finally achieving worldwide recognition when the 8000 series was unveiled in 2004. By eliminating edge diffractions, the MDE delivers incredibly flatfrequency response, precise imaging and unparalled acoustical performance. The slimline enclosure is elegantly cast and beautifully finished to produce an extreme rigid structure withlarge internal volume – thereby extending the frequency response while simultaneously reducing resonances and thus the quantity of internal damping material required. Over the years the MDE design has made possible an extensive range of custom paint finishes, but with the announcement of the new RAW option, Genelec is confident that customers will be attracted to the idea of investing in an endlessly recyclable Genelec loudspeaker that is itself largely created from recycled beverage cans and automotive parts – but is now even kinder to the environment. Genelec Managing Director Siamak Naghian comments: “We have been trialling the RAW finish for an extended period of time, gauging customer response while fine-tuning the production process. Although we were driven by the desire to offer a loudspeaker option with even greater sustainability credentials, it quickly became clear that customers across all market segments also loved the ‘industrial’ design aesthetic that RAW represents. We hope the audio community will agree that our RAW loudspeakers sound exceptional, are beautiful to look at –and are better for the planet too.” For more information, please visit www.genelec.com/RAW
  5. Brainworx Audio is proud to announce availability of bx_console SSL 9000 J — putting the big, deep, and clear sound of Solid State Logic’s legendary large-format 9000 J Series console in the hands of DAW users as an officially-approved plugin with 72 different TMT (patented Tolerance Modeling Technology) emulations, enabling anyone to build a 72-channel analog SSL console in the box by using TMT to harness the power of the most famous British console ever produced for their mixes. Available at www.plugin-alliance.com as of April 8. The SSL 9000 J improved upon its predecessors by offering extended bottom end, a more clean and open top end, and additional distortion-free headroom — quickly making it a favorite among the top producers and engineers who crafted some of the biggest pop, hip-hop, R&B, and orchestral recordings of the 1990s, 2000s, and beyond. Brainworx’s bx_console SSL 9000 J was developed using the original Solid State Logic 9000 J schematics and built by using component modeling in close collaboration with SSL engineers. Additional refinement of the exacting emulation came courtesy of GRAMMY® Award-winning mix engineer Michael Brauer, who helped Brainworx by matching the plugin’s sound and behaviour to the SSL 9000 J he personally used on countless Gold- and Platinum-selling records throughout his celebrated career. Musically, Michael Brauer and other top-tier mix engineers have helped create a rich menu of presets so users of the bx_console SSL 9000 J plugin can get going without necessarily needing to start from scratch. Speedily experience the sound of SSL at its best — in the box, with the console design used on countless major releases from artists including Aerosmith, James Bay, Beyoncé, Mary J. Blige, Joe Bonamassa, Coldplay, DMX, Evanescence, Yo Gotti, Jay-Z, Wyclef Jean, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Madonna, John Mayer, Nicki Minaj, Nas, Rihanna, Santana, Shakira, Britney Spears, The Black Eyed Peas, Usher, Kanye West, and so many more. But better still, bx_console SSL 9000 J has been taken to the next level by Brainworx adding powerful plugin-only features, such as continuously variable THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) and V GAIN (virtual gain) controls to add colorful saturation and/or simulated analog noise independently or globally — changeable across all plugin instances. In addition to the original EQ, DYNAMICS, and FILTERS sections, it also features switchable EQ modes between E- and G-style filters. Notable 9000 Series-only dynamics features such as ‘peak detect’ and expander/gate ‘hold’ are all present and correct, accessible via a scalable UI (User Interface) to adapt to various screen sizes and workflows. With 72 different TMT channel emulations in one plugin, bx_console SSL 9000 J users are working with the only true console emulation — everything else is just a channel strip. Says Michael Brauer: “The bx_console SSL 9000 J was the missing link going hybrid and in the box.” Having spent so long working so successfully with Solid State Logic’s legendary large-format 9000 J Series console in his previous New York studio before bravely moving into a hybrid situation at his new cutting-edge mixing studio, BrauerSound, he should surely know! bx_console SSL 9000 J is available for purchase (as an AAX AudioSuite-, AAX DSP-, AAX Native-, AU-, VST2-, and VST3-supporting plugin for MacOS 10.9 through 10.14 and Windows 7 through 10) at an attractive introductory price of $299.99 USD until April 22, 2020 — rising thereafter to an MSRP (Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price) of $349.00 USD — from here: https://www.plugin-alliance.com/en/products/bx_console_ssl_9000_j.html Owners of bx_console SSL 4000 E or bx_console SSL 4000 G can add the new bx_console SSL 9000 J to their Plugin Alliance account for only $149.99 USD by managing their plugins and various personal offers from here: https://www.plugin-alliance.com/en/manage-plugins.html Owners of bx_console N, bx_console Focusrite SC, bx_digital V3, bx_townhouse, bx_XL V2, elysia alpha compressor, Lindell Audio 80 Series, Mäag Audio EQ4, Shadow Hills Mastering Compressor (any version), SPL IRON, or SPL Transient Designer Plus can add the new bx_console SSL 9000 J to their Plugin Alliance account for just $179.99 USD courtesy of the brand partners by managing their plugins and various personal offers from here: https://www.plugin-alliance.com/en/manage-plugins.html A fully-functional, 14-day trial of bx_console SSL 9000 J is available to anyone registering for a free Plugin Alliance account here: http://www.plugin-alliance.com/en/registration.html bx_console SSL 9000 J is included in Plugin Alliance’s monthly MEGA Bundle subscription (https://www.plugin-alliance.com/en/products/pa-mega-bundle-monthly.html), annual MEGA Bundle subscription (https://www.plugin-alliance.com/en/products/pa-mega-bundle.html), and monthly bx_bundle subscription (https://www.plugin-alliance.com/en/products/brainworx-bx_bundle-monthly.html) at no extra cost!

  7. Linköping, Sweden, April 1st, 2020. A powerful and musical modern plug-in channel strip with the unique vintage sound of Chandler Limited®, the Zener-Bender combines the crisp and colorful character of the Curve Bender Mastering Equalizer with the big, punchy Zener Limiter to bring class, history, and most crucially of all, a phenomenal sonic impact. Component-modeled with Softube’s customary care and experience, these units together can take charge of any mix. Tracing the heritage of the Chandler Limited® Zener-Bender is like discovering an imperial family tree. The roots of the Chandler sound are in EMI consoles, used at Abbey Road from the 60s onwards to record some of the most seminal albums of all time, by the likes of Pink Floyd and The Beatles. And right up to the present day the Curve Bender and Zener Limiter are being used in both hardware and plug-in form by top producers and engineers across records by world-leading artists such as Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, The White Stripes, Foo Fighters, Taylor Swift, and more. The influence of the Chandler Limited® sound cannot be overstated. It shapes the world it rules. Adding the focused channel strip workflow, as well as modern plug-in features such as External Sidechain, Mid/Side Processing, and Channel Linking, the Zener-Bender is a step into the future for your mixes. Bring the mojo and musicality of the Curve Bender, and the sophisticated authority of the Zener Limiter, to your DAW of choice and hear the improvements. The individual plug-ins are included with the Zener-Bender, so sessions featuring the Curve Bender or Zener Limiter alone will remain as royally awesome as ever. Zener Limiter and Zener-Bender For Console 1 In addition to the Zener-Bender, Softube and Chandler are releasing two new products: the Zener Limiter is now available as a standalone plug-in in native format, and Console 1 owners will be able to take advantage of the Zener-Bender’s sound with an exclusive Console 1 version of the strip. In short • Zener Limiter and Curve Bender combined in one channel strip • The historic EMI/Abbey Road sound from the late 60s realized by Chandler Limited®’s hardware and reimagined for a modern studio context • Includes four plug-ins: Zener-Bender, Zener Limiter, Curve Bender Mastering Equalizer and Zener-Bender for Console 1 • Units used on modern classic records by Beyoncé, The White Stripes, and Lady Gaga • Zener Limiter is now available in native format • Curve Bender, Zener Limiter and Zener-Bender For Console 1 plug-ins are also available as separate products • Plug-in exclusive features: External Sidechain, M/S Processing, Channel Linking
  8. Linköping, Sweden, April 3rd, 2020: Tactile control of your most important DAW parameters inspires your production and performance to be even more musical. Full compatibility between Ableton Live and Softube's Console 1 ecosystem is now available, allowing Live users to take advantage of all the hands-on capabilities that both Console 1 and Console 1 Fader offer in the studio or on the stage. Control of volume, pan, solo, and mute in Live is just the start. Sending to return tracks for reverb, adding drive to distort a loop, filtering sounds while launching scenes, and grouping tracks with layer mode takes your creative potential to a new level. Those using Ableton Push to create or perform will love the addition of faders to their workflow for the first time. Flexibility is key – it is your music, so you decide what setup is best for you. Console 1 and Console 1 Fader can work on their own in Ableton Live or be used together. And those mixing larger sets can even add more than one Console 1 Fader for an additional 10 faders. The full compatibility features are available for Ableton Live 10.1.9 (VST3). To help Ableton Live users get started, Softube created, in collaboration with Ableton, a series of educational videos showing how to incorporate Console 1 Fader into their workflow. The videos can be watched on Softube's website: https://www.softube.com/console-1-and-ableton-live Console 1 & Console 1 Fader The Console 1 ecosystem is an elegant and modern mixing solution, combining hardware and software to give engineers and producers the best of both worlds: the versatility, affordability, and usability of in-the-box mixing, alongside the workflow, feel, and focus dedicated hardware can bring. Console 1, the original hardware unit, can be used alone, or in combination with Console 1 Fader for a tight complete mixing console experience. Users can even use multiple Console 1 Fader units to build the ideal workflow. With no need for MIDI mapping or assigning, Console 1 works straight out of the box with all major DAWs – Ableton Live, PreSonus Studio One, Steinberg Cubase, Cakewalk by BandLab/SONAR, Cockos Reaper, Logic Pro X, Pro Tools, and more – any host that can run a VST, AU, or AAX plug-in can work with Console 1. Some hosts offer deeper compatibility, allowing control of the DAW itself from Console 1's hardware. Live is the latest addition to this group, joining Studio One, Cubase, Cakewalk by BandLab/SONAR, and Reaper, with more DAWs being added regularly. In short Ableton Live has now full compatibility with Softube's Console 1 and Console 1 Fader (Version 10.1.9 / VST3) Live users can now control their DAW from the Console 1 and the Console 1 Fader hardware, using the knobs and faders to adjust volume, pan, solo, mute, sends, drive, and other parameters Perfect for use in the studio or on the stage Ableton Push users will love the addition of faders to their workflow

  10. Zero-G Fractale Fragmente is an exquisite, experimental multi-format sound library from the Hamburg-based electronic project neueheimat. neueheimat is the brain-child of Dennis Grell and Philipp Staudinger – two producers and sound designers, whose idea was to create an unconventional library of sound tools for film and video soundtrack creators experimental music artists and alternative EDM producers.

Most sound sources came from field recordings, underwater shooting, contact microphones, broken machines, industrial equipment, children's toys, live concerts and other noise sources all recorded through a vintage analogue signal path to create a unique and incomparable listening experience. Fraktale Fragmente comes with an elegant and easy to use Kontakt interface that will help you create entirely new sounds from the existing samples. Not only are there 6 individual filters, ADSR and LFO, there is also easy access to a whole array of effects, including delay, reverb and modulation that will help you sculpt and shape your sounds to perfection.

  12. Neu-Anspach – April 2, 2020 – What does the global coronavirus crisis mean for the event technology industry? How are manufacturers, distributors, and service providers being affected by the massive restrictions implemented? What challenges – but also opportunities – lie ahead? The Adam Hall Group’s Industry Talk addressed these crucial questions. In a group video conference broadcasted at 10:00 a.m. on March 31 at www.event.tech, eight participants exchanged views and thoughts for around 90 minutes in front of an online audience of more than 1700 viewers. The international panel of experts concluded that “We will get through this together.” The Adam Hall Group reacted to the international developments of the coronavirus (COVID-19) with the industry talk. Hosted by Marcel Courth, the Editor-in-Chief & Publisher Production Partner and Publisher Professional Technology & Live Communication Unit, the Adam Hall CEO Alexander Pietschmann spoke to Nico Ubenauf, CEO satis&fy, Marcus Pohl, Chairman of the Board ISDV & IGVW, and Joe Lamond, Präsident & CEO NAMM, about the most pressing current measures and potential ways out of the crisis, as well as a number of other topics. “No other industry has felt the effects of the coronavirus crisis earlier than the event industry.” No events, no concerts, no conferences, no trade fairs – the event industry has been globally affected by the effects of the coronavirus crisis on a wide-ranging scale. Event technology service providers, in particular, have had sales losses of 100%. In that respect, Nico Ubenauf then highlighted the great depth of solidarity within the industry: “No industry can survive a shutdown lasting several months. That’s why we quickly teamed up with other companies to do something. We wanted to be proactive and not just complain about the – right and important – measures being taken.” Marcus Pohl from the ISDV talked, among other things, about a large-scale survey among event technology service providers and other industry participants. In February and March alone, more than 12,000 events in Germany were canceled, corresponding to a loss of around 30,000 working days for the self-employed service providers involved. “The Tables Have Turned.” As an event technology manufacturer, CEO of Clay Paky Marcus Graser faces especially large restrictions and problems in Italy: “On the one hand, we hope that we will be able to start up production again at some point and that our supply chain will return to normal to some extent. Just a short while ago, everyone was worrying and watching what was going on in China in this regard. Now, the tables have turned, and Europe is experiencing a growing demand problem.” If the normal ways of doing things and working are done away with, even for just a bit, new options need to be explored. Nico Ubenauf, who is a forerunner in the area of livestreaming events with satis&fy, once again drove this point home: “You can also use the time to establish new projects and processes. People will also have a huge desire to attend concerts and events once all the security measures are over. At the same time, however, live streaming will continue to play a greater role and could potentially be an inexpensive ticket alternative for premium events in the future.” Joe Lamond, President and CEO of NAMM Show, finished with very specific, overall words of hope and encouragement: “Perhaps this will all end with our governments showing greater appreciation for everyone in the future – for the self-employed, employees, people in general, and last but not least those involved in our industry, who make all these events possible every year.” The participants of the Adam Hall Industry Talk at a glance: • Marcel Courth (Moderator): Editor-in-Chief & Publisher Production Partner, Publisher Professional Technology & Live Communication Unit (Ebner Media Group) • Marcus Pohl: Chairman of the Board ISDV & IGVW • Nico Ubenauf: CEO satis&fy • Joe Lamond: President & CEO NAMM • Luca Lastrucci: CEO/co-founder Powersoft • Marcus Graser: CEO Clay Paky • Simon Kropp: Editor-in-Chief EventRookie • Alexander Pietschmann (Host): CEO Adam Hall Group Anyone who missed the Adam Hall Industry Talk can watch full coverage of the event at www.event.tech. #WeWillGetThroughThisTogether #ProAudio #ProLighting #EventTech #ExperienceEventTech More information: adamhall.com cameolight.com ld-systems.com gravitystands.com palmer-germany.com defender-protects.com
  13. SANTA MONICA, CA, USA: launched last year to widespread critical acclaim as the world’s first bus-powered modeling microphone, cleverly combining the ease and convenience of a digital mic with the flexibility and sound quality of a recording studio, Antelope Audio is proud to enhance Edge Go’s Synergy Core capability — centred around a single ARM- based DSP (Digital Signal Processor) plus custom-designed FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) chip architecture (following in the trailblazing formative footsteps of its innovative Discrete 4 Synergy Core, Discrete 8 Synergy Core, Orion Studio Synergy Core, and Zen Tour Synergy Core audio interface namesakes) — via various vocal-oriented virtual effects emulations available as paid software expansions, while also adding seven new vintage mic models for free, as of April 2… Simply speaking, Synergy Core combines the phenomenal parallel computational capabilities of FPGA processing with industry-standard DSP, as brought into play on Antelope Audio’s game-changing Discrete 4 Synergy Core, Discrete 8 Synergy Core, Orion Studio Synergy Core, and — most recently — Zen Tour Synergy Core audio interfaces. All are capable of latency-free direct monitoring with effects when recording as a direct result, readily allowing users to hear already processed signals in real-time — even before pressing record, and acting as a time-saver and creative workflow enhancer in the process. Another added user benefit comes courtesy of offloading the host CPU (Central Processing Unit) from effects processing when mixing and/or mastering, making it perfectly possible to work with larger DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) sessions without compromising channel count or creativity with effects processing. Having ‘hinted’ at Edge Go’s Synergy Core capability late last year when announcing availability of Auto-Tune Synergy as a custom-designed software plug-in that leverages the next-generation hardware acceleration of the Synergy Core platform to deliver the legendary Auto-Tune® pitch correction and vocal effects with ultra- low latency, Antelope Audio has hereby effectively enhanced Edge Go’s Synergy Core capability still further via various vocal-oriented virtual effects emulations. Entering the radical realm of the world’s first bus-powered modeling microphone for the first time, Antelope Audio’s Opto-2A carefully captures all the subtleties and nuances of an iconic Sixties-vintage electro-optical compressor that needs no introduction. Its continued use in broadcast and recording studios worldwide over half a century after its inception is testament to its audio engineering excellence. Exceptionally warm sound and a gentle compression character have endeared it to generations of artists and producers, possibly gracing more hit records than any other outboard unit in hardware history. Having said that, key to its unique personality is the T4 optical attenuator, the outcome of time spent developing optical sensors for the US military. Its sonic signature is the two-stage release, greatly contributing to its smooth and musical compression. Clearly, Opto-2A is similarly simple to dial in, with only GAIN and PEAK REDUCTION controls needed to tweak the resultant sound, and now the authentic-sounding Synergy Core effect that is Opto-2A is available to a whole new realm of users as a paid software expansion for owners of Edge Go. Meanwhile, MG4+ faithfully recreates the superlative sound of an acclaimed 500 Series EQ module making its presence felt sonically on hundreds of top charting records from the likes of Madonna, Snoop Dogg, and many more well-known faces of popular music. MG4+ also authentically emulates its innovative SKY BAND — but boosted by offering 10 (2.5, 3.5, 5, 7, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, and 40 kHz) settings above and beyond the original hardware’s five — to add the kind of expensive-sounding gloss and sheen typically heard on hit recordings benefitting from high-flying production teams and expensive equipment. Enhancements continue with an additional master GAIN control not present on the original hardware. However, since this six-band EQ is also notable for its highly-linear phase operation — far from easily achievable in the analogue domain, it stands to reason that MG4+ manages that, too, preserving any audio being fed through it without suffering from any phase-shifting artefacts. As such, purity and clarity combine, perfectly powered by Antelope Audio’s latency- and CPU-free Synergy Core effects processing — perfect for enthusiastic Edge Go users seeking latency-free direct monitoring with effects when recording. Helpfully, hearing an already processed voice without any distracting latency makes for faster creative decision-making, which is clearly a winner in itself. Antelope Audio’s Adaptive Vibrato’s virtual effect development derived from closely examining some tried-and-tested circuits before incorporating those impressions into a virtual unit delivering a veritable vibrato toy box — complete with LATCH and TRIGGER MODE; RATE and DEPTH controls; five-way WAVE modulation; DELAY and RISE controls; THRESHOLD and ENDFREQ controls; plus control over the DRY/WET MIX. Antelope Audio’s appropriately-named Adaptive Vibrato is another notable new (to Edge Go) Synergy Core effect to be reckoned with! With Space Flanger, owners of Edge Go can creatively set the following controls to apply a distinctly modern twist to a popular pioneering effect to the sound of any vocalist or instrumentalist: GAIN — adjust input volume (-12dB to +12dB); WAVE — choose between triangle and sine wave modulation; FEEDBACK — adjust the amount of output signal being fed back into the input (produces resonance); DELAY — adjust the offset between the source and delayed signal (in milliseconds); RATE — adjust the frequency of the modulating wave (perceived as a change in modulation speed); DEPTH — adjust the amplitude of the modulating wave (perceived as volume change); and MIX — blend between the DRY (unaffected) and WET (processed) signal. Similarly, Antelope Audio’s Synergy Core-powered Vari-Speed Tremolo really represents a fresh and versatile virtual take on vintage tremolos, courtesy of its five-position WAVE selector and the addition of a VARI-SPEED RATE knob. Needless to say, by adjusting how quickly the frequency of the modulating wave varies, Vari-Speed Tremolo users — including owners of Edge Go, of course — can spice up their tremolo effects with a welcomed touch of unpredictability. Ultimately, expecting the unexpected is often the way forward for owners of Antelope Audio’s high-end professional audio equipment. Edge Go comes complete with no fewer than 18 vintage mic emulations — including seven (Berlin K86, Berlin 47 TU, Berlin V563, Berlin/Halske MN25, Berlin M251, Minnesota 20, and Illinois 7B) new ones — embedded as realtime Synergy Core-based, CPU-free software within Edge Go’s onboard processing and also as AAX-, AU-, and VST-compatible plug-ins for post-production, together with 20 real-time effects (including Auto-Tune Synergy), so is no exception to this unwritten rule! Record or stream live with the kind of fidelity only a professional large diaphragm condenser microphone with high-end audio converters can deliver — sample rates start at 44.1kHz and go all the way up to 192kHz, with a wide and open 117dB dynamic range. Results are polished and immediate, thanks to authentic-sounding effects and presets produced by top audio pros. Powered by a macOS 10.12 Sierra- or above-running Mac (2012 or newer with available USB 2.0/USB3.0/3.1 port) or Windows 10-running PC (with available USB 2.0/USB3.0/3.1 port), Edge Go does not require 48V phantom power to function. Forget about preamps, mixers, and power supplies — simply plug it in and start recording... with various vocal-oriented effects now available as paid software expansions for this truly Synergy Core-capable creative wonder! Why not expand Edge Go’s generous capabilities, then? There is no need to break the bank in doing so. Edge Go comes complete with all necessary cables, a rugged shock-mount, an adjustable pop filter, and a sleek desktop mount — all packed in a portable, sturdy suitcase, and available for purchase (priced at an RRP of $1,295.00 USD/€1,295.00 EUR) through Antelope Audio’s growing global network of authorised dealers (https://en.antelopeaudio.com/dealers/).

  14. HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (March 31, 2020)—Fender Musical Instruments Corporation (FMIC) today released the all-new Tom Morello "Soul Power" Stratocaster. Tom Morello collaborated with Fender on his first artist signature Stratocaster which features unique customizations from the original “Soul Power,” like a kill switch that helped shape his radical sound and riffs from the Audioslave era and beyond. Morello takes a creative approach to playing, infusing feedback, unconventional picking and tapping, in addition to heavy guitar effects that all inspired his new signature guitar. This past year the original “Soul Power” was recently featured at The Metropolitan Museum of Art® and currently resides in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame®. The "Soul Power" Stratocaster is one of the most iconic guitars of the modern rock era and allowed for Tom to create a new sound after his time with Rage Against The Machine. Morello has pushed the boundary of guitar to new limits through his innovative style of playing and heavy metal and punk hybrid riffs. “This Fender Soul Power signature guitar is made to my exact specifications and is an authentic replica of the instrument that forged my sound in Audioslave,” said Tom Morello. “That was a period of renewed artistic freedom and limitless expression on the guitar for me and Soul Power was the sonic divining rod leading the way. Just as important as getting the specs right however is the charitable/social justice component of my collaboration with Fender. Together we are giving away hundreds of guitars to underprivileged schools and to the Jail Guitar Doors prison rehabilitation program to help unlock creative doors and create better (and louder) futures.” The Tom Morello "Soul Power" Stratocaster features a bound-top alder slab body, originally a limited run Strat®, a "Deep-C" maple neck with a 9.5"-14" compound radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets and matching painted headstock. Tom's unique, powerful sounds - from gentle rhythms to screaming feedback, chaotic stutters and more - inspired every detail of the guitar. From a Kill Switch that creates the “Stutter” effects emulating DJ scratching that he is known for, to a Seymour Duncan® Hot Rails™ bridge humbucker pickup that delivers power and dynamics and a Floyd Rose® Locking Tremolo System that allows for radical Tremolo effects while staying perfectly in tune - this Strat was built to rock. “We are extremely honored to have worked with Tom on this project and embark on a long-term partnership throughout 2020,” said Justin Norvell, EVP Fender Products. “Tom’s iconic original “Soul Power” guitar sound created a monumental impact on rock at the time and we’re looking forward to players today being able emulate those unique sounds with the Tom Morello "Soul Power" Stratocaster. Collaborations like these continue to keep Fender’s legacy in rock ‘n’ roll alive and inspire the next future rockers of our generation.” The launch of Morello’s guitar marks the start of his and Fender’s 2020 collaboration in association with the Fender Play Foundation designed to equip, educate and inspire the next generation of players, alongside Tom’s other charitable efforts with Jail Guitar Doors. Tom Morello "Soul Power" Stratocaster – $1,399.99 is based on the modified Designer Series Strat used during his time in Audioslave and features an alder slab body with binding and a Deep “C"-shape maple neck with 9.5"-14" compound radius rosewood fingerboard and 22 medium-jumbo frets. Other features include: a recessed Floyd Rose® locking tremolo system, Seymour Duncan Hot Rails bridge humbucker, two Fender Noiseless™ pickups in the neck and middle positions, a chrome pickguard, kill-switch toggle, locking tuners, matching painted headcap and iconic "Soul Power" body decal and a black Fender case.
  15. Iisalmi, Finland, March 2020... Genelec is proud to unveil the 1235A Smart Active Monitor, which fuses the sound and heritage of the iconic 1035 main monitor with high performance 96 kHz processing and the ability to adapt to any space through its tight integration with Genelec’s GLM calibration software. The 1235A is therefore the perfect main monitor for large music, film and post production studios that demand high SPL, and neutral, stable imaging that can be perfectly optimised for the room’s unique acoustic environment. Launched in 1989, the original 1035 became an industry standard throughout the world, fulfilling the need for a wall-mountable full-range monitor that could deliver true reference performance at high SPLs and over long listening distances. Legendary studio designer Sam Toyoshima was an early evangelist for the 1035, and as a result it was quickly adopted by many of the world’s finest studios, including Metropolis and Olympic in London and JVC and West Side in Japan. The new 1235A shares all the finest characteristics of its forerunner. Outstanding frequency response both on and off-axis, coupled with superb directivity, results in a very wide and stable sweet spot that can be trusted by multiple listeners within a room. With a short term SPL of 130 dB and low frequency extension down to 29 Hz, the 1235A also delivers staggering power, but its transparent uncoloured performance ensures that the listener can still make accurate, reliable mix decisions even after long sessions. The 350 litre enclosure of the 1235A matches exactly the dimensions of the 1035, and features dual high performance 15” drivers, dual 5” midrange drivers and a low distortion 1” throat compression driver. The midrange and tweeter drivers work in conjunction with proven DCW waveguide technology to produce the outstanding directivity and smooth, consistent imaging for which the Genelec brand has become renowned. The 1235A’s remote-mountable RAM XL electronics module contains power amplification, crossovers and processing, with Class D amplification delivering 2000 W, 800 W and 250 W for the LF, MF and HF drivers respectively. Input connectivity is provided via both analogue and AES/EBU digital formats – along with an AES/EBU digital output – and the updated design of the 1235 also delivers a flatter on-axis frequency response and improved noise performance than was possible with the original 1035. Through its integration with GLM software, the 1235A can be configured, controlled and calibrated for any type of acoustic environment, allowing the user to tailor the frequency response, level, distance delay and more, to provide a truly optimised listening experience – and mixes that translate perfectly to other rooms and systems. GLM allows users of any type of Genelec Smart Active Monitors to easily and swiftly create systems to suit all types of stereo, multiple stereo, multi-channel or 3D immersive audio formats. Happily, the technology of the new 1235A is also available as a retrofittable on-site upgrade for existing owners of 1035A and B monitors. The upgrade, which includes installation of the new RAM-XL module, brand new drivers and a complete system calibration, can be completed with no structural changes and little downtime, enabling 1035 users to benefit from improved performance, greater flexibility – and many more years of reliable service from their monitors. Genelec Managing Director Siamak Naghian comments: “While control room sizes are generally shrinking, there is still a clear demand from the worlds of music, film and post for main monitors that can deliver pristine truthful performance at very high SPLs. Sitting happily between our 1234 and 1236 main monitors, we are sure that the technology of the 1235A will be warmly embraced by those building new rooms, and existing owners of vintage 1035s that now want to take advantage of all the power and flexibility that our Smart Active Monitors offer. The first pair of 1235As is already destined for Metropolis Studios in London, and we’re excited about the potential for this reborn Genelec classic!” The 1235A is available now. For more details, please visit www.genelec.com and for more information about 1035 upgrade options please contact your local Genelec distributor.
