Note: The New Products Guide will not be published until the first day of the show.
New Products


Debuting at NAMM is MOVEK's (booth 3690, Hall D) myMix, a personal cue mixer with built-in multitrack recording storage for studio recording/live performance/rehearsal applications. MOVEK is a new company founded by former Telex Group president Mathias von Heydekampf. Read more about the myMix.

Tonelux TILT
Tonelux will introduce its new TILT 8-channel tone control. The TILT control, designed by Tonelux founder Paul Wolff, rebalances a channel’s high- and low-frequency content via a single knob, and was first featured on the company’s MP1a discrete mic preamp module. Centered on approximately 700 Hz, the TILT control knob boosts high frequencies from 0 dB to 6 dB while simultaneously cutting low frequencies by the same amount when turned fully to the right. When turned to the left, low frequencies are boosted by up to 6 dB while high frequencies are similarly cut. This allows a user to conveniently alter the EQ of a track to better fit into the mix using a single rotary control. Find out more about the TILT.

True Systems PT2-500 Modular Mic Pre
The diminutive PT2-500 conforms to the modular 500 Series format, and features up to 70 dB of high-headroom, low-noise microphone gain. A high-quality DI calms edgy piezos and provides a thru jack for amping or effects. Switchable phantom power, 80Hz highpass filter and polarity reverse give the unit appropriate flexibility.The unit boasts a frequency response of 1.5 Hz to 600 kHz (-3 dB). Find out more about the PT2-500.
