Dynaudio Professional releases AIR Control software

Dynaudio Professional has released a new AIR Control application for PC, Mac and Windows-based tablets, allowing users to carry out advanced calibration and alignment of their AIR monitoring system.

Dynaudio Professional AIR Control

The software provides access to advanced tools and features inside AIR monitors and subwoofers including timing and SPL calibration and parametric EQs for each monitor. Air Control allows users to define and store custom setups and presets with selective parameter locking, and a special measurement mode provides EQ line signal out from selected monitors.

“AIR Control will be available as a free download, and we are very excited to offer our current and future AIR users the advantages of this intuitive software that easily and intuitively unlocks all the power of their AIR monitor systems.” says Fred Speckeen, Global Business Manager for Dynaudio Professional. “AIR systems are an industry standard, and have been so for over a decade. It is chosen by ear by the world-leading film, music and broadcast production studios. AIR Control is designed to meet their accelerating project and workflow demands where minutely accurate adjustments and configurations must be easily made, saved and quickly recalled.”

AIR Control replaces Dynaudio Professional’s original ‘TC PC-IP’ installer software that was developed for professional installers. The new AIR Control application design is easier to use and an even more efficient way to fine-tune a complete, digital AIR monitoring system. The new AIR Control runs on Mac, PC and Windows-based tablets.

The AIR Control software is available for download now.

Patchworks updates Conductr controller app to v1.2

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Aug 21, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Patchworks has released version 1.2 of the Conductr Ableton Live controller app for iPad app, featuring a new 4-dimensional XY pad.

Conductr with XY-4D pad

After its successful transition to a freemium model last June, Conductr takes a step further and launches a long awaited feature: the XY-4D pad.

Many Conductr users have been asking for an XY pad for months. But the Conductr developers didn’t want to release a XY just like any other. So they took their time to create the Conductr XY-4D pad.

A Conductr XY-4D pad can be created just like a User Module, and can contain 4 fx units. Each unit allows you to control up to 4 parameters: one horizontally (X), one vertically (Y), one by pinching (Z) and one on/off parameter when tapping (K). So you can control up to 16 parameters in a single module, and even have up to 64 parameters at your fingertips in the Playground with the 4 user modules view mode.

Last but not least: each XY-4D unit has a reset and a freeze mode. You can go as crazy as you want and never get lost.

Changes in Conductr v1.2

  • New: 4-dimensional XY pad:
    • Each XY-4D pad can contain up to 4 fx units.
    • Control up to 4 parameters in a single fx unit: one horizontally (X), one vertically (Y), one by pinching (Z) and one on/off parameter by tapping (K).
    • Each fx unit has a reset and a freeze mode.
    • Control 16 parameters in a single XY-4D pad.
    • Control up to 64 parameters with the Playground’s 4 User Modules view mode.
  • Bug fixes and improvements.

From now on, the Conductr free basic version will include one XY-4D fx unit. Users can purchase the Premium User Modules to get unlimited User Modules featuring a complete XY-4D pad on each module.

Akai Professional omtrps AFX & AMX controllers for Serato DJ

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Aug 06, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Akai Professional has announced the AFX and AMX, two new controllers for Serato DJ.

Akai AFX and AMX controllers
Over a USB connection, AFX and AMX each add extensive hands-on controls to a variety of DJ setups ranging from Serato NoiseMap Control Vinyl (DVS), minimalist controllers, HID-capable CD transports, and more.

AFX, a controller for both modern electronic dance music artists and turntablists, features an intuitive array of knobs, pads and buttons for advanced track manipulation. Ten pad modes enable DJs to trigger samples, set and launch hot-cues, slice songs, and assemble loops on the fly from 8 velocity-sensitive, backlit pads. Touch-activated FX knobs provide sound sculpting prowess with a creative twist – a Touch mode allows the knobs to respond with a turn, a tap, or both. An endless controller with LED readout delivers needle-drop access to any point in the track for efficient workflow.

AFX is the first Official Serato Accessory to include exclusive controls for Serato’s newly minted Serato Flip Expansion Pack. Serato Flip allows users to record their Cue Point and Censor actions, which can be saved and looped, ready to re-trigger and start in an instant. Serato Flip lets users create and save up to 6 “Flips” per track, ready for playback in the studio or club. Voucher codes for the Serato Flip Expansion Pack and the popular Back Pack FX Expansion Pack are included with every AFX.

AMX is a plug and play mixing control surface with inputs for Serato NoiseMap control signals. AMX unlocks the full-version of Serato DJ, and features a 24-bit, 96 kHz audio interface for sending the mix to a speaker system. With gain, EQ, Filter knobs, two line faders, and a mini innoFADER crossfader, AMX is the ideal central hub for a Serato DJ setup utilizing turntables or CD controllers with Serato NoiseMap (DVS). Further, AMX is the first interface to take advantage of Serato’s newly announced DVS Expansion Pack. Each EQ and Filter knob is touch-activated for generating all-new sonic expressions. Transport and library navigation controls complete the mouse-less experience that combines the power and flexibility of Serato DJ with the hands-on hardware experience DJs demand.

“Producers and DJs exist in worlds that have been colliding at a rapid rate. Today’s leading artists want to manipulate music in real-time with the level of control Akai Professional has made famous in the studio, ” noted Dan Gill, Akai Professional Product Manager. “AMX and AFX let DJs of all walks expand their control set and take advantage of every ounce of performance power Serato DJ offers.”

AFX features

  • Expands audio command control of Serato DJ; FX, loops, cue points and more.
  • Serato Flip-capable -create custom edits, extend your music or re-imagine it altogether in the studio or club.
  • Includes Serato Flip and Back Pack FX Expansion Packs, a $49 value.
  • 4 decks of control over a single USB connection.
  • 9 touch-activated knobs for effects tweaking and EQ kills.
  • 8 velocity-sensitive, backlit pads with RGB feedback.
  • 10 pad modes for triggering hot cues, loops and slices.
  • Powered by a single USB connection.

AMX features

  • Mixing surface with 24-bit/96 kHz audio interface for Serato DJ.
  • Plug and play with Serato DJ (included) – no upgrade purchase required.
  • 2 sets of phono/line inputs for Serato DJ timecode signals such as DVS & HID (DVS Expansion Pack sold separately).
  • 9 touch-activated knobs for cutting-edge EQ kills and Filter sweeps.
  • Pro-grade, adjustable mini innoFADER crossfader.
  • Powered by a single USB connection.

The AFX and AMX will be on display at DJ Expo, Booth 416, August 12-14th in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The controllers will be available for purchase this fall priced at $199.99 USD/£139.99 GBP/179.99 EUR for the AFX and $249.99 USD/£179.99 GBP/229.99 EUR for the AMX.
