Steinberg VST Connect Performer

Steinberg has announced the release of VST Connect Performer for iPad, an app that offers online remote recording collaboration with producers and musicians in real time.

Steinberg’s VST Connect plug-in links Cubase production environments to any musician connected to the Internet through a computer or iPad running VST Connect Performer.
VST Connect Performer transmits audio data from the iPad to the host computer and establishes a communications uplink between musicians and producers.

VST Connect Performer requires a peer-to-peer connection with VST Connect SE (included in Cubase versions 7.5 and 7 and Nuendo versions 6.5 and 6) or VST Connect Pro.

“VST Connect Performer’s finally available for the iPad. This means that musicians and producers collaborating with studios running VST Connect don’t need a laptop or computer but can stream their performance directly from the iPad. And the display’s real estate gives users sufficient room to navigate easily around the app,” said Matthias Quellmann, product marketing manager at Steinberg.

VST Connect Performer features

  • Collaborate with other musicians and producers around the world.
  • Peer-to-peer solution with sample accurate sync.
  • Cue mix section for optimal recording environment.
  • Encrypted transfer for secure exchange of important audio material (VST Connect Pro only).

Related: , , , , Posted in news on May 23, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Avid has announced that world-class educational establishment and Avid Learning Partner Musicians Institute College of Contemporary Music, in Hollywood, California, has expanded its partnership with Avid to give the next generation of creative talent access to the industry’s leading audio technology.

Musicians Institute Studio

With the addition of the Avid System 5 digital audio mixing console, students can gain valuable hands-on experience with the tools and workflows used in the real-world production environments of today and tomorrow.

This implementation expands Musicians Institute’s existing Avid workflow, which includes the industry-leading Pro Tools®|HDX system. With Pro Tools|HDX integration, System 5 is now fully networked with the recently announced Avid MediaCentral Platform, giving the Musicians Institute access to an even wider range of tools and experts for collaboration, music production, and, eventually, monetization of their own content.

“Avid audio consoles and control surfaces are the industry standard in post-production and broadcast,” said Mehdi Hassine, music and post-production instructor at Musicians Institute. “As our students transition into the real world, it’s critical that they have solid practical experience on the leading audio systems to prepare them for the pressures of our highly demanding media production world.”

Avid systems are used in every lab, studio and main live performance room at Musicians Institute’s world-class facilities. It offers hands-on experience in a wide variety of consoles and control surfaces as part of its audio engineering program, including Avid ICON D-Control™, D-Show® and SC48. All of its studios are currently transitioning to Pro Tools|HDX.

“Proficiency in Pro Tools is an essential requirement for any music or post-production engineering position,” continued Hassine. “As an Avid Learning Partner, our students are able to distinguish themselves as they enter the profession by proving their dedication and excellence through the certification process. It also means we stay current and relevant with the latest hardware, software and curriculum. From training our instructors to providing technical support, Avid has been a key partner in our facility and curriculum.”

“By giving students hands-on experience on the industry-leading digital audio solutions, Musicians Institute is able to prepare students to meet the demands of real-world production environments and excel as audio professionals,” said Jeff Rosica, senior vice president of worldwide field operations at Avid. “Our Avid Everywhere vision extends to the entire ecosystem of artists, content creators, producers, and aspiring professionals – all of whom deserve access to the highest-quality, most innovative tools for their craft. We’re pleased to partner with Musicians Institute and to help set a new standard for professional audio education.”

Moogfest has announced the Moogfest Audiotool competition, offering participants a chance to play at Moogfest and get released on a compilation.

Starting today, Moogfest is inviting anyone to produce a track – using the free cloud-based audio workstation Audiotool – and submit it to the Moogfest Competition. The winner gets to play a set at Moogfest in Asheville, North Carolina, taking place from the 23rd to the 27th of April 2014. The winner will also, along with 7 runners up, have their tracks included on a limited edition release which will go out to the artists, VIPs and press who will be attending Moogfest.

Participants will have until the 25th of March to submit a track to the competition. A select panel including some of the Moogfest artists will then judge the tracks, with the the winner being announced on 1 April 2014.

Moogfest is the annual festival that celebrates the innovative spirit of founder Dr. Robert Moog, an American pioneer of electronic music and inventor of the Moog synthesizer. Emmy Parker, Brand Director at Moog Music Inc commented: “Moogfest represents the synthesis of technology, music and art. Audiotool’s innovative platform empowers emerging artists to create on their own terms. We are excited to offer Audiotool’s rich community of musicmakers an opportunity to be a part of Moogfest 2014.”

Since the 50s Moog Music has pioneered and developed devices that offer artists endless possibilities when it comes to creating sound. Audiotool, which started in 2008, brings together a range of retro and new school synthesizer emulations running in the browser, allowing collaboration and free access for anyone. The browser-based audio workstation is all about democratising the process of music creation and collaboration in the cloud. This partnership offers a unique opportunity to combine forces and to capitalize on the natural strengths and alignment of the two brands.

Audiotool inventor André Michelle said: “this partnership is huge for us and our users will be super excited about the chance of winning a set at Moogfest, for one just because of the incredible line-up. It’s also a unique opportunity for Audiotool users to have their music critiqued by some of the Moogfest artists.”

The contest submission phase ends March 25th, 2014. The winners will be announced April 1st, 2014.

The grand prize is playing live set at Moogfest (flight, hotel and artist pass included), and 1st – 8th place winners will get their tracks on the Moogfest 2014 compilation.

Korg announces development of new ARP Odyssey synthesizer

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Feb 19, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Korg has announced that a faithful recreation of the legendary 1970s ARP Odyssey analog synthesiser is being developed by Korg for release later in 2014.

The ARP Odyssey was released in 1972 by ARP Instruments, Inc. and quickly became famous for its unique rich sound and innovative performance controls. It was a staple for many recording and performing musicians worldwide and was used on countless hit records over many years. The Odyssey was one of the highlights of the ARP company and became a long selling product. With slight updates and improvements it was sold through to 1981.

Korg is also proud to welcome Mr David Friend as our chief advisor on the Odyssey. David Friend established ARP Instruments, Inc. along with Alan Robert Pearlman and is a past president of ARP Instruments, Inc. He was also the lead designer of the original Odyssey in addition to designing or co-designing many other products.

After ARP, Mr Friend became a successful technology entrepreneur. In 2010, he was named Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year in the Emerging Technology category for the New England Region, he has been a lecturer at MIT’s Sloan School of Management and is now Chairman & CEO of Carbonite, Inc. He has been a trustee of the New England Conservatory and Berklee College of Music.

In the last few years, KORG INC. has released several top selling analog synthesizers such as the monotrons series, the monotribe, the volca series and the hugely successful MS-20 mini, a faithful fully analog recreation of the 1978 MS-20. With Korg’s technology capabilities and planning ability for analog synthesizers, and in collaboration with David Friend, we believe the legendary ARP Odyssey will become a “must have” for an all new generation of music makers.

The ARP Odyssey is scheduled for release in September 2014.
