will be all over the floor at AES -- don't miss checking out what
high-performance multi-core platforms from Intel can bring to your music
production! You can see Intel-based PCAudioLabs systems in the
Fairlight, Steinberg, and Cakewalk booths on the Exhibition floor, and
Intel-based DELL systems in the Digidesign booth, among others.
Apple Logic Studio
Apple updates its flagship Logic
music/audio production software as a comprehensive $499 bundle filled
with production tools. The centerpiece is Logic Pro 8, featuring a
redesigned interface that makes it easier to write, record, edit and
mix. Also included in the bundle is Soundtrack Pro 2. Previously only
available in the Final Cut Studio bundle, Soundtrack Pro 2 is created
for film/video audio post work, offering powerful editing tools,
surround mixing and a streamlined design that speeds audio
post-production for picture. Another highlight is Studio Instruments,
providing a huge set of included virtual instruments, Studio Effects
(with some 80 signal processing plug-ins, from convolution reverbs to
vintage compressors to amp models) and Studio Sound Library, with 18,000
Apple Loops, 2,400 channel strip settings and 1,300 sampled instruments.
Another plus is MainStage, a new live performance rig for
guitar/keys/bass that's designed to simplify using software instruments
onstage. AES Demo Rooms #2D07/2D08.
Royer Live Series Mics
Royer Labs has created
road-ruggedized versions of three ribbon mics, enabling live
sound/touring pros to capture the most subtle details of a live
performance. The new Live Series mics are based on the SF-24
phantom-powered stereo ribbon, the R-121 ribbon mic and the R-122 Active
Ribbon™ mic. By increasing the ribbon thickness, these recording
tools have been optimized for live applications. Live Series microphones
are identified with an "L" on the top of the mic and are priced the same
as the studio versions. Royer's new Live Series Microphones are slated
for delivery Q1 of 2008. MSRPs: SF-24 Live, $4,495; R-121 Live, $1,395;
and R-122 Live, $1,895. AES booth #868.
While keeping the popular features of
the PD 6 digital field recorder, the PD606 and PD204 offer many updated
features, including full-size DVD-RAM disc recording, 8-track recording
through the digital I/O, dual-drive recording, extreme power efficiency,
digital mixer input routing, HD drive access through USB 2, high-res LED
meters, tri-level sync and more. The new machines resemble an updated PD
6, allowing users to adapt to the 606 and 204 easily. Power options
include Ni Cad and IDX Endura cell technologies and 6+2 poly files can
be recorded if desired. Retail: $9,995. AES booth #512.
The portable D888 recorder/mixer has eight inputs
and eight outputs, allowing it to be placed in-line with other systems
or act as both a stand-alone 8-track recorder and a small-format analog
mixer with effects. Native WAV recording and high-speed USB 2 data
transfer allow recordings to be shared with computer-based systems for
full editing and final mastering. Korg is currently bundling Cubase 4 LE
software for a total solution. AES booth #344.
Designed to provide low-cost/high-quality
performance, the cardioid M3 is suitable for both live and studio use,
while internal shockmounting and low handling noise make it suitable for
location recording and sample/sound effects gathering. Other features
include a switchable highpass filter, 3-stage (0/10/20dB) pad, 142dB SPL
handling, 48VDC phantom or 9VDC battery powering, molded flight case and
foam windscreen. Retail is $249. AES booth #1112.
Bag End PD10E-I Double-10 Sub
Now in a self-powered
version, the PD10E-I is specifically designed to fit into locations
where space is at a premium. The system packs a lot of bass into a small
cabinet -- down to 8 Hz -- thanks to the company's exclusive INFRA
technology that provides high-fidelity, yet compact bass sound.The
built-in Minima One is a 1,000-watt high-efficiency amp that weights
just 5 pounds. The 49-pound enclosure is 13x22x13 inches (HxWxD) and
retail is $1,620. AES booth #909.
Crowley and Trip "El Diablo"
A ribbon mic tough enough for
close-in kick drum miking, "el Diablo-Mercenary Edition" uses Crowley
and Tripp's ultratough Roswellite ribbon material and is said to have
the "aggression of the 421 with the size of the 47 FET without any of
the phase issues that often occur when using two mics on a single
source." Shipping begins this month. AES Booth #772.
