Time+Space announces iZotope and ESI competition

Time+Space has announced a new competition in which you can win ESI monitoring speakers and iZotope effects plugins.

Time+Space iZotope and ESI giveaway

You’re pleased as punch with the bassline, the chords are catchy and the lyrics are simply genius but unless you’ve got the right tools for mixing and mastering, your track will probably lack that professional polished finish.

Thanks to software developers like iZotope, this can all be achieved easily in your home studio with plugins such as Ozone 5 Mastering Suite, Alloy 2 Essential Mixing Tools and Nectar Vocal Suite all helping you to get impressive results with relatively little outlay.

Of course, you need a decent set of monitoring speakers as well, and that’s where ESI come in. Earlier this year the German audio specialists released their Unik product line – professional quality active reference monitors that produce a clear, strong and precise sound thanks to the extraordinarily light membrane of the ribbon tweeter.

UK-based distributor Time+Space are giving you the chance to win a pair of Unik monitors plus iZotope software in their October competition with a total prize giveaway totaling over £1600!

Competition prizes

  • First prize: Pair of ESI Unik 08 monitoring speakers and iZotope Ozone 5 Complete Mastering Suite
  • Second prize: Pair of ESI Unik 05 monitoring speakers and iZotope Nectar Complete Vocal Suite
  • Third prize: Pair of ESI Unik04 monitoring speakers and iZotope Alloy 2 Essential Mixing Tools

The competition is only open to European residents and ends on 31st October, 2012.

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Jul 25, 2012 - comment 2 comments

Time+Space has announced the Aktiv monitoring speakers from ESI.

ESI Aktiv 08

Off the back of their higher end UniK series delivered earlier this year, ESI has announced the release of a new line of affordable studio reference monitors – the Aktiv 05 and Aktiv 08.

Replacing the nEar05 / 08 eXperience range, the Aktiv 05 and Aktiv 08 boast unparalleled punch in the low-mid frequency thanks to the top quality kevlar driver – a major improvement over the paper and polypropylene drivers used in many comparable speakers.

Plus, thanks to a retuning of all components by German engineers, including a completely revised design of the crossover circuitry plus a higher quality silk dome tweeter, the Aktiv 05 and 08 provide honest sound at an affordable price and are perfect for use in a range of settings.

Aktiv features

  • 2-way powered speaker / active studio monitor speaker.
  • 5″ or 8″ kevlar curved cone as low frequency driver.
  • 1″ silk dome tweeter as HF driver.
  • Aktiv 05 output power: 60W (HF 30W, LF 30W).
  • Aktiv 08 output power: 90W (HF 30W, LF 60W).
  • Aktiv 05 frequency response: 50Hz – 20kHz.
  • Aktiv 08 frequency response: 40Hz – 20kHz.
  • magnetically shielded for desktop operation without electronic interference.
  • input connections: XLR / TS1/4″ combo connector, balanced / unbalanced input.

The ESI Aktiv monitors are sold as single units with the following RRPs:

  • Aktiv 05: £109 GBP.
  • Aktiv 08: £155 GBP.
