Editors' First Take

Check out the AES 2009 Portal
Welcome back to the city that never sleeps! New York City is once again hosting the AES Convention (October 9 to 12, 2009). It’s been two years since audio pros trampled through the streets of N.Y,, attending the convention, hailing a taxi, dining at a great restaurant or taking in the sights.

Each year, we offer our "AES Audio Products Guide," where you can find the latest products that will be debuting—or showcased—at the show. Make sure you bookmark this page during the show for late-breaking news through our blog, updated videos of product demos, nightly newsletters and much more!

Product Debuts at AES 2009

Calrec Artemis
The Artemis console with routing and processing power is based on the company's Apollo platform introduced at the NAB show this year and uses Bluefin2 for processing and Hydra2 for routing. Bluefin2, the next generation of Calrec's trademark Bluefin high-density signal processing platform, lets Artemis provide substantial resources at multiple sample rates. Running at 48 kHz, Bluefin2 gives Artemis up to 640 channel processing paths, 128 program buses, 64 IFB/track outputs and 32 auxiliaries. Artemis also includes a second compressor/limiter in each channel, more than 70 minutes of assignable delay and three independent APFL systems for multiple operator use. Find out more about the Calrec Artemis.

Clear-Com Tempest 2400
Clear-Com Communication Systems announced the East Coast debut of its Tempest2400 wireless intercom system at AES 2009. Tempest2400 operates in a license-free frequency band where it is fundamentally resistant to interference from other wireless devices, ensuring that communications go off without a hitch in even the most crowded RF environments. Ideal for the rental and staging market, as well as live performance applications, it can be operated indoors and outdoors. Find out more information about Tempest 2400.
Booth #676

Phoenix Audio DS48 Mic Preamp
Phoenix Audio's new 8-channel mic preamp, the DRS8, is a solid-state Class-A discrete model. Each channel has its own dedicated level control, -30dB pad, phantom power, phase reverse, highpass filter and mute buttons. The unit has an 8-channel monitoring output facility so all eight channels can be sent directly to a monitor controller or a patchbay, as well as having individual channel outputs. Find out more information about the DS48.
Booth #860

Qualis Audio Sentinel
Qualis Audio announced the digital input version of Sentinel, a network based automated surround sound monitor that performs unattended monitoring of surround program material. Sentinel directly assesses stereo and mono compatibility of a surround mix, and it performs stereo and mono downmixes internally and compares these to the original surround mix.  If content present in the surround mix is missing from either the stereo or mono mixes, it flags a warning or error. Dr. Richard Cabot, president and CTO of Qualis Audio, will be presenting a technical paper on this technology at the N.Y. AES Convention titled “Automated Assessment of Surround Sound.”  Find out more information about Sentinel and the technical paper.
Booth #743

Solid State Logic Matrix, X-Desk
Solid State Logic will feature the new Matrix and X-Desk consoles, along with X-Rack and XLogic Digital I/O modules at the 127th AES Convention. The new Matrix and X-Desk continue the legacy of the AWS 900 + SE by delivering SSL sound and quality to smaller installations, while the X-Rack brings the sonic capabilities and functionality of the SSL flagship Duality console to any studio. XLogic I/O units provide reliable and cost=effective pathways to DAW systems. Shown for the first time in the U.S. at AES is the XLogic MX4 PCIe audio I/O and processing card and DSP-powered software mixer. Find out more information about these products.
