Shure has announced the 5575LE Unidyne Limited Edition microphone, a single element unidirectional dynamic microphone to be released in celebration of the Unidyne microphone’s 75th anniversary.

Shure 5575LE

As the world-renowned leader in microphones, Shure Incorporated has designed and manufactured many innovative products for the audio industry over the past nine decades. However, none have been more impactful or iconic than the Unidyne® microphone. In January 2014, the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) presented Shure with the Milestone Award for the Unidyne technology. Being honored with this prestigious award puts Shure in the same company as famed inventors, including Guglielmo Marconi, Nikola Tesla, Michael Faraday, and Benjamin Franklin. This honor also puts the invention of the Unidyne technology alongside landmark events such as the invention of the first computer and the Apollo Space program. To mark this achievement, and to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the development and availability of the 55 Unidyne microphone, Shure is proud to announce a new Limited Edition Unidyne model, the 5575LE Unidyne® Limited Edition Cardioid Dynamic Microphone.

A special anniversary version of the iconic 55 Unidyne cardioid dynamic microphone, the 5575LE replicates the original design, with appropriate improvements in durability and sound quality. A sublime recreation for collectors, the serialized limited edition 5575LE features the current Unidyne III cardioid element, the classic large outer grill, vintage badging, and zinc die-cast, with a silver finish desk stand. The microphone comes in an aluminum flight case with 75th anniversary logo branding, and includes two Unidyne photo prints and a certificate of authenticity, featuring a tribute from Shure Chairman Mrs. Rose L. Shure. Only 5575 pieces of this model will be available worldwide.

“The Unidyne is the most recognized microphone in the world, used by countless performers, including Elvis and Sinatra, as well as numerous contemporary artists” said Scott Sullivan, Senior Director, Global Product Management at Shure Incorporated. “The 5575LE pays homage to the beloved and classic 55 Unidyne, packaging together vintage aesthetic and performance features for collectors and performers.”

Introduced in 1939, the 55 Unidyne was swiftly adopted as the microphone of choice for broadcast, public address, recording, and two-way radios. As the popularity of the 55 grew, it found its way into many performance environments that would cement its iconic status and legacy as “the microphone that needs no name.” To the industry, the 55 Unidyne provided control of feedback and reduction of off-axis ambient sound. In the hands of popular performers and heads of state, the 55 Unidyne became recognized as a familiar cultural presence and a sign of quality. Its design has come to symbolize what many think of when they hear the word “microphone.”

The Shure 5575LE Unidyne Limited Edition cardioid dynamic microphone will be available in December 2014 at a retail price of $399 USD.

Of course the Rob Papen brand has not yet reached its 50th anniversary, although its founder has, however, finally reached his 50th birthday on October 8 and is also celebrating his 35th synth-playing ‘anniversary’. As such, if you were to ask Rob how old he feels, he would probably reply, “Mmm… around 35!”

So from today (October 8) until October 10 we will be celebrating with you by offering an ’appropriate’ 35% discount on software purchased at robpapen.com or at your local Rob Papen dealer!

The sale ends October 10th, 2014. Use coupon ROBPAPEN at checkout.

NUGEN Audio unveils key loudness management innovations & celebrates 10-year anniversary at IBC2014

At the IBC2014 show in Amsterdam, NUGEN Audio is celebrating a decade of service to the film and broadcast community by showcasing several innovations in its line of industry-leading post-production and broadcast audio tools.

NUGEN Audio DynAptT for LMB

The centerpiece is the company’s groundbreaking new DynAptT dynamic adaptation technology for loudness-compliant audio repurposing, now available as an extension for NUGEN Audio’s Loudness Management Batch (LMB) Processor. In addition, NUGEN Audio is introducing a new version of LMB Processor’s MXF Extension with DPP AS-11 compatibility.

Also at IBC2014, NUGEN Audio will feature version 1.1 of MultiMonitor, its powerful loudness and true-peak monitoring software application, and will preview its upcoming technology for stereo-to-5.1/7.1/9.1 upmixing in film and television production.

NUGEN Audio’s LMB Processor, an offline file-based batch loudness analysis and correction program for high throughput applications, is the first product to feature the company’s new DynApt technology. DynApt addresses the challenges of repurposing theatrical content to TV in the context of full loudness compliance, giving audio engineers a new option for adapting the content in a fast and efficient manner that completely preserves dialogue clarity. DynApt provides similar breakthrough benefits when adapting TV content for mobile streaming, or any other application that requires adapting dynamics accurately to the constraints of the delivery system. Working much faster than real-time, DynApt adapts dynamic audio appropriately for different listening environments and playout systems, while respecting the level of dialog in the original mix and meeting specific loudness criteria.

LMB Processor’s MXF Extension is the first NUGEN Audio product set to receive DPP AS-11 certification, a result of the company’s participation in the Digital Production Partnership (DPP) compliance program. Making its IBC debut, the MXF Extension introduces native MXF audio-handling that enables LMB Processor to perform automated analysis and correction of audio within an MXF container while preserving all other data within the file.

Ideal for loudness playout monitoring in master control rooms and outside broadcasting operations, MultiMonitor version 1.1 includes usability and logging improvements to enhance the postmortem and compliance record, so that data can be reviewed later if the need arises. MultiMonitor now offers individual logging for up to 16 individual loudness and true-peak meters – a total of up to 96 mono, stereo, and 5.1 audio channels. With version 1.1 of MultiMonitor, each meter is individually network addressable, broadening the possible applications.

NUGEN Audio’s new Enterprise Solution Program offers a wide range of custom-coded applications that can be tailored to the specific needs of large-enterprise customers. The new program leverages NUGEN Audio’s experience delivering software-based loudness integrations in many large organizations worldwide, such as the BBC, ESPN, France Télévisions, VRT Belgium, and many others. Each custom enterprise solution can support multiple users and enable IT staff to centralize licensing across multiple machines, without having to juggle many unique license codes.

“For a decade, NUGEN Audio has been serving the needs of clients ranging from small, boutique post-production houses, to the world’s largest broadcast and production organizations. At IBC2014, attendees will see why NUGEN Audio continues to be the leading innovator for standards-based solutions that ease the burden of loudness compliance,” said Jon Schorah, founder and creative director, NUGEN Audio. “A great example is our new DynApt technology, which makes loudness compliance and repurposing faster and less expensive, with a better-quality result than other methods. And MultiMonitor now supports individual logging and network addressing for more loudness meters and more channels than any other solution.”

NUGEN Audio 10th Anniversary

In celebration of its 10 years of business, NUGEN Audio is now offering a 40% discount on its Loudness Toolkit, an industry-leading suite of loudness, true-peak metering, and correction tools including VisLM, ISL, and LM-Correct.
