Fairlight CC-2

Fairlight has announced the release of CC-2, its next generation audio engine.

CC-2 is based on Fairlight’s Crystal Core Technology, powering their entire range of high-speed digital audio mixing, recording and editing systems, delivering guaranteed performance and increased efficiencies in the largest and most complex productions.

“Traditional approaches to audio processing are not enough in today’s high-track-count, multi-channel immersive surround mixing environments,” commented Tino Fibaek, Chief Technology Officer of Fairlight. “The new CC-2 guarantees rock-solid performance for our customers, with no limits. Creativity should never be limited by technology”.

CC-2 features

  • One Thousand Channels
    Track counts and surround formats of today’s film and television productions require a more advanced and more scalable alternative to outdated DSP based solutions, which is why Fairlight has moved to the more advanced FPGA-based CC-2 technology. Providing 1,000 hard disk playback channels, 100 live inputs and 100+ output buses available, the CC-2 system is the fastest and most powerful audio engine ever made, perfectly suited to today’s submersive surround sound formats, including Dolby® Atmos™, DTS® MDA and NHK’s 22.2.
  • Enhanced Productivity
    Tightly integrated with Fairlight’s editing and mixing environment, the new CC-2 enables a range of productivity-enhancing features including an entirely new 64 bit codebase, advanced delay compensation, and faster than real-time bounce to name just a few. With equalisation, dynamics, plug-ins and inserts always on every input and bus with near zero latency, unlimited headroom and legendary sound quality, Fairlight users will now be able to tackle larger projects, with more tracks, more processing power, and more speed with ease.
  • Accelerated Workflow
    CC-2 is a quantum leap in processing power and when combined with Fairlight’s intuitive user interface, tactile control surfaces featuring their patented, self-labelling Picture Key Technology, and tight integration with third-party storage, media asset management systems or video collaboration environments, Fairlight delivers the fastest workflows of any system on the market. When faced with tight deadlines, you can rely on Fairlight to help you deliver a quality product, on time, every time, at least 20% faster than on competitive systems.
  • Invest in your future
    Continuing a long tradition of seamless upgrade paths, Fairlight has ensured that CC-2 is also compatible with audio hardware purchased for CC-1. This means that owners of Fairlight systems don’t need to replace their current audio interfaces and control surfaces to upgrade to CC-2. Existing investments in Fairlight’s high-quality hardware continues to be supported, maximising the return of investment on existing equipment.

Ugo Audio sets its commercial plugins free

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Mar 31, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Ugo Audio has announced that its VST plug-ins for Windows are now available as freeware.

Ugo M-Theory & Dualism
Ugo’s M-theory synthesizer offers a wide range of high quality synthetic and synth/acoustic hybrid modeled sounds.

From 2003-2011 I was into designing synths and effects with SynthEdit. I was obsessed with it for years but eventually my life became increasingly busy, leaving me with no time for plugin development. These are the results of those experiments – some of which were pretty popular, and all of which I thought were quite fun.

They are all rather old now, and very outdated as far as system compatibility goes. To use them these days, you’ll need either a 32-bit Windows host or a wrapper such as jBridge. Also, only Rez is multi-core compatible, so for all others you can only use one instance per project without crashing your host. You may bump into a few other bugs too.

Due to their age, and that I no longer have time to update them, I’ve decided to make even the previously commercially released plugins freeware now. I hope you have some fun with them.

The free downloads include M-theory & Dualism, Rez, Disturbance, Ironhead Suite, Metallurgy, and more.

PreSonus announces StudioLive AI-Series Digital Mixers with Active Integration

PreSonus has announced its new series of StudioLive AI hardware/software digital mixing and recording systems, each with Active Integration technology.

StudioLive AI-series mixers retain the same surface-driven functionality that made StudioLive mixers famous, while adding even more processing power, enhanced workflow features, and Active Integration technology. Like the original StudioLive series, they’re incredibly intuitive and easy to learn and use.

PreSonus StudioLive AI 32.4.2 mk2

The series consists of three models: the 32-channel StudioLive 32.4.2AI, with 24 dedicated mix buses; 24-channel StudioLive 24.4.2AI, with 20 dedicated mix buses; and 16-channel StudioLive 16.4.2AI, with 16 dedicated mix buses.

Unrivaled sound quality is provided by premium Burr-Brown A/D/A converters and new DSP architecture based on the acclaimed 64-bit Studio One® audio engine. Robust DSP performance, direct Wi-Fi and LAN communication, fast and intuitive workflow, an onboard FireWire s800 interface, and a tightly integrated software suite for Mac®, Windows®, and iOS® create a streamlined working environment for both live and studio use.

Redesigned from the ground up, these state-of-the-art mixers provide analog workflow with extensive dual signal processing on every channel and bus and actively integrated software that solves real-world problems and lets you record and distribute what you mix. All signal processing-Fat Channel processing, reverb and delay effects, graphic EQs, the works – is available on all channels and buses at all times. Configurable networking and communications option cards ensure your investment won’t be outdated as new technologies emerge.

Active Integration is the difference

PreSonus Active Integration (AI) is a complete, networked, tightly integrated hardware/software ecosystem in which every touch point in the system communicates to enhance the user experience and solve practical problems in ways not previously possible.

PreSonus StudioLive AI

In StudioLive AI-series digital mixers, Active Integration technology provides wireless or wired (Ethernet) remote control over nearly every feature, thanks to tight integration with the newly redesigned PreSonus StudioLive AI Software Library for Mac®, Windows®, and iOS®, which is included free with StudioLive AI-series mixers. The new mixers sport a FireWire s800 interface and an Ethernet control port on an upgradeable card that can be swapped for optional Dante, AVB, or Thunderbolt.

Thanks to Active Integration, StudioLive AI-series digital mixers deliver an extended feature set, including twice as many internal effects buses as first-generation StudioLive mixers (two reverbs and two delays on dedicated buses), the ability to create two complete sets of parametric EQ and dynamics-processor settings for each channel and bus and make quick A/B comparisons at the touch of a button, and more.

Seamlessly integrated software

The StudioLive AI Software Library has been redesigned for the Active Integration platform and includes the latest versions of PreSonus’ tightly integrated software bundle for Mac and Windows: Capture™ 2.1 multitrack-recording software, Studio One Artist® 2.6 DAW, and Virtual StudioLive-AI editor/librarian/control software with Smaart Measurement Technology™.

In addition, StudioLive Remote-AI control software for iPad® and QMix™-AI aux-mix control for iPhone®/iPod® touch will be available free from the Apple App Store.

All of these applications are designed to communicate with each other and with the mixer. For example, channel names entered in SL Remote-AI are broadcast throughout the network (including Capture), so you only have to name a channel once-and you can name it from anywhere, including the StudioLive AI mixer.

Here’s a level of integration you won’t get anywhere else: When you record with Capture 2.1, you have the option of saving the StudioLive AI mixer scene along with the Capture Session. Studio One 2.6 can open Capture Sessions natively, and when you open a Capture Session that includes a StudioLive AI mixer scene, the Studio One mixer is set to match your StudioLive AI mix scene, including fader values, mutes, pan, and FX send mixes. Fat Channel settings are loaded into Studio One’s new Fat Channel Native Effects™ plug-in. Now you can listen to your mix on your laptop, just as it sounded during the gig, even if the StudioLive AI mixer is packed and on its way to the next gig.

Last and far from least, PreSonus’ award-winning Studio One® DAW has been updated to version 2.6. In addition to the aforementioned ability to import StudioLive AI scenes from Capture 2.1 and apply the scene to its own mixer and new Fat Channel plug-in that can share presets with VSL-AI, version 2.6 adds Nimbit® and SoundCloud™ dashboards to the Start page, extended hardware-controller support, major metronome enhancements, and much more.

StudioLive AI digital mixers are expected to be available at PreSonus dealers in the third and fourth quarters of 2013, with the StudioLive 32.4.2AI coming first, followed quickly by the other two models. MAP/street price is expected to be $3,999.95 USD for the StudioLive 32.4.2AI, $2,999.95 USD for the 24.4.2AI, and $1,999.95 USD for the 16.4.2AI.
