ZAOR introduces ONDA media workstation

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

ZAOR has announced the ONDA media workstation, the latest addition to its family of CLASSIC Series media workstations and accessories designed to meet the diverse needs of today’s musicians and producers by balancing build quality and budget beyond compare.

ZAOR ONDA

The timeless and aesthetically-pleasing ONDA design dates back to customer requests for a lightweight yet reassuringly solid media workstation with easily-reachable rack spacing positioned to its extreme left and right when sitting at the mixing sweet spot.

Taking things one step further, atop each angled rack is a functional flat surface, sited as such for positioning nearfield studio monitors vertically or horizontally as the user sees fit (or the design of the studio monitor being used allows).

All in all, the focus is on durable quality with side panels, front arm rest, and feet all being crafted from solid local oak, which can be left in its natural blond-coloured state or stained to Cherry, Walnut, Mahogony, or Black — the choice is out there, so choose carefully!

The ONDA is available starting at RRP 1,200 EUR (incl. 15% tax, plus shipping costs).

ZAOR introduces MIZA Z-based modular system studio furniture concept

Related: , , , Posted in news on Apr 24, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Studio furniture developer/manufacturer ZAOR has introduced a new modular system studio furniture concept based around its marketable MIZA Z media production desk.

ZAOR MIZA Z

In creating the MIZA Z media production desk, ZAOR Studio Furniture has given much thought to the needs of modern musicians, producers, project studios, and post-production professionals working to space and cost constraints. The remarkable result is an attractive and adaptable platform that also allows users to decide what add-ons they need and where they want to position them to best suit their needs.

Characterised by its heavy-duty ‘Z’-shaped supports, the MIZA Z itself is available in black/cherry, grey/oak, or grey/ wengé (dark grey) colour combinations, and features a spacious (1836 x 850mm) surface with solid-wood front edge, and a matching cable tray on its rear underside. Topside there is plenty of room for a sizeable DAW controller and computer monitor, for example. From the front, a large, pullout tray can comfortably accommodate all manner of peripherals — from computer keyboard to master keyboard, small mixing console to an array of compact and bijou controllers chosen by today’s technology-championing DJ/producers. The choice is out there. Take your pick.

Freedom of choice need not end there, however. Far from it, in fact. For further questions still need deliberation: do you favour an in-the-box recording approach using an all-in-one desktop audio interface, perhaps, or readily access a rack- full of great gear to make great recordings? Do you work with speakers or only headphones? Different approaches dictate different setups, something ZAOR fully appreciates and acknowledges with its flexible MODULAR system studio concept. As such, the MIZA Z media production desk can be expanded easily to integrate several specific add-ons as the user sees fit.

First up, the MIZA GRIPRACK is available as a MIZA Z colour-matching 2U- or 4U-sized rack space with a padded top section onto which a speaker or computer monitor can be protectively positioned. As implied by name, simply slide it along the rear of the MIZA Z desktop then tighten it at the desired position. Up to three can be lined up in a row to provide up to 12U of rack space. Simple. And attractive and adaptable — just like the MIZA Z ‘mothership’!

Speaking of speakers, there is also a sensible solution for precisely positioning active nearfield monitors on the MIZA Z desktop as part of the MODULAR system studio furniture concept: the MIZA D-STAND. Studio monitor placement becomes a breeze with these MIZA Z colour-matching desktop stands that are also helpfully height-adjustable to the millimetre thanks to a hidden screw thread — slowly spin the padded top section of the speaker stand to reach the optimum listening level for the user concerned. Couldn’t be simpler, surely?

Should you wish to use larger studio monitors and position them further away then ZAOR Studio Furniture have also got you covered with the MIZA Z colour-matching MIZA STAND MKII. Attractive and affordable, yet designed to the best possible technical performance standards, these floor stands are also height-adjustable (875 – 1206mm), while the AERstop pad at the top of the stand helps isolate the speaker from the stand to reduce lower frequency content propagation from speaker to floor and room — professional through and through with looks to die for!

Concludes ZAOR Studio Furniture Sales & Marketing Manager Klaus Gehlhaar: “Every user works in their own way. We can’t build the right desk for every one of them, but we’ve gone modular so they can choose whatever they need!”

All modualar system studio furniture concept components can be ordered online directly from ZAOR Studio Furniture for 550 EUR (MIZA Z), 180 EUR (2U MIZA GRIPRACK), 200 EUR (4U MIZA GRIPRACK), 130 EUR (MIZA D-STAND), and 330 EUR (MIZA STAND MKII) — including 15% tax, plus shipping costs — or from any authorised dealer.

UNTERLASS Studio Furniture expands studio furniture range

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Jan 03, 2013 - comment 0 comments

UNTERLASS Studio Furniture has announced availability of the MONO 16 and MONO 30 floor racks for its flexible range of quality professional products.

Today’s budget-conscious climate has resulted in many musicians choosing to record in their own highly- personalised workspaces, often at home. Design consciousness is arguably at an all-time high, but what do you do when what you want does not exist? Why, design and build it yourself, of course! Which is exactly what Austrian Arno Unterlass did: UNTERLASS Studio Furniture by name, studio furniture by nature.

Hot on the heels of the company’s successful DUODESK 60 launch product — billed as being a one-man media production workspace for recording, mastering, and mixing — and clever, keyboard- accommodating DUODESK 60 KEY follow-up comes two matching floor racks to accompany either of those desks… perfect for those who just can’t get enough outboard!

Unterlass MONO 16

As implied by name, the MONO 16 features a slightly-angled, front-facing floor-level vertical 16HE rack (and a rear-mounted horizontal 4HE rack) with a flat surface area above to accommodate whatever users wish to position on there (within reason).

Its modular design means that multiple MONO 16s can be neatly lined up alongside one another to easily expand the system (if and when the need arises).

Unterlass MONO 30

Meanwhile, the MONO 30 takes a different design approach, perfectly mirroring the end profile of both the DUODESK 60 and DUODESK 60 KEY desks for expansion purposes.

It includes 30HE of rack space, shared across its 10-degree-angled desktop-mounted rack (10HE), front-facing floor-level vertical rack (16HE), and rear-mounted horizontal rack (4HE).

Optional white (alternative colour) or ‘Zebrano’ (deluxe wooden) finishes enhance the look and feel of the MONO 16 and MONO 30. Pricing upon request.

The MONO 16 and MONO 32 are available to purchase for 540 EUR / 690 EUR respectively (excluding VAT). Production time is approximately four weeks from order placement, and shipping is available from 100 EUR (excluding VAT), depending on destination. Both racks are securely supplied flat-packed in a wooden crate with instructions for relatively simple self-assembly.

UNTERLASS introduces keyboardists’ dream desk: DUODESK KEY 60

Unterlass Duodesk Key 60

Unterlass Studio Furniture has announced the Duodesk Key 60, the latest addition to its flexible range of quality professional products proudly manufactured in Austria.

Hot on the heels of the company’s successful DUODESK 60 launch product — billed as being a one-man media production workspace for recording, mastering, and mixing — comes the DUODESK 60 KEY. Confirms company founder Arno Unterlass: “The DUODESK 60 was the first furniture I designed and built; the next step was to integrate a keyboard shelf capable of handling heavy master keyboards. After a lot of research and prototype-building, the DUODESK KEY 60 was born. Its pull-out drawer enables composers and songwriters to work with large master keyboards, which can be rolled out from underneath the desk surface. An industrial- engineered guidance system ensures the necessary stability and strength required to handle the static and dynamic loads imposed at very low installation heights.”

The DUODESK KEY 60 is available as standard in a silk matt black lacquered finish for €2,225.00 EURO (excluding VAT). Featuring a cleverly-concealed cable management system, its two 10-degree-angled desktop-mounted side racks (10HE each), two front-facing floor-level vertical side racks (12HE each), and two rear-mounted horizontal racks (4HE each) all amount to a lot of rack space — surely enough to satisfy most recording requirements, while its ergonomic shape, look, and feel simplifies workflow. The height- adjustable keyboard drawer can comfortably accommodate master keyboards up to 170cm wide and 16cm high — including the likes of Doepfer Musikelektronik’s monstrous, heavy-duty flight-cased, 88-note LMK4+ example, with the front of the desk’s armrest panel being custom profiled to exactly match the purchaser’s master keyboard.

UNTERLASS Studio Furniture opens for business with DUODESK 60

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Oct 02, 2012 - comment 0 comments

All-new high-end studio furniture-maker UNTERLASS Studio Furniture has opened its doors for business throughout the European Union, offering a flexible range of quality professional products proudly manufactured in Austria.

Unterlass Studio Furniture Duodesk 60
Unterlass Studio Furniture’s Duodesk 60 in various configurations.

Today’s budget-conscious climate has resulted in many musicians choosing to record in their own highly- personalised workspaces, often at home. Design consciousness is arguably at an all-time high, but what do you do when what you want does not exist? Why, design and build it yourself, of course! Which is exactly what Austrian Arno Unterlass did: UNTERLASS Studio Furniture by name, studio furniture by nature.

So who better, then, to take up the UNTERLASS Studio Furniture story than the namesake company founder himself: “In 2009 I wanted to buy a desk for my own recording studio, but there was nothing on the market that fitted my needs, in terms of ergonomics, design, and materials. As a musician and producer myself, I knew exactly what I wanted: the look and feel of a studio — without having to buy a big analogue mixing console. I rendered the first prototype of the DUODESK 60 in 3D, then built it for real. This was exactly what I wanted — lacquered finish, open backs, and lots of space for rack units. The reason why I formed the company was that I got so many requests from people who wanted exactly the same desk.”

Billed as being a one-man media production workspace for recording, mastering, and mixing, today the DUODESK 60 is available as standard in a silk matt black lacquered finish for €1,780.00 EURO (excluding VAT). Featuring a cleverly-concealed cable management system, its two 10-degree-angled desktop-mounted side racks (10HE each), two front-facing floor-level vertical side racks (16HE each), and two rear-mounted horizontal racks (4HE each) all amount to a lot of rack space — surely enough to satisfy most recording requirements, while its ergonomic shape, look, and feel simplifies workflow, creating the impression of being in a professional studio environment — perfect for impressing clients, whether working in a fully professionally-designed studio or otherwise.

Various configuration options enhance the look, feel, and functionality of the DUODESK 60: deluxe (alternative ‘Zebrano’ wooden finish); flexi (extends the desk width by 20cm or 50cm); master (adds another angled 10HE rack space within the desk’s ‘sweet spot’); white (alternative colour finish). Pricing upon request.

Production time is approximately four weeks from order placement, and shipping is available from 100 EUR (excluding VAT), depending on destination. All desks are securely supplied flat-packed in a wooden crate with instructions for relatively simple self assembly. No need to widen any doors!

# minitek electronic music festival

here it finally is: new york’s electronic music + innovation festival! minitek is going to be slightly different from other festivals you know, even very different at times.

first of all because the festival combines two aspects: electronic music and innovation. while it seems pretty straight forward at first, you’ll see soon that we’re going to explore innovation not only in respect to music but also to other forms of art, science and technology.

Electronic music talents from around the world, a range of experimental art and technology installations, new consumer technologies that have never been applied in a festival context – such as RFID wristbands, and lots more.

Also check here and let Peter Kirn know Who Do You Want Interviewed At Minitek?

# More Cowbell.DJ – More Cowbell is the online spin off of the Saturday Night Live special featuring Will Ferrell as Gene Frenkle, the cowbell player, and Christopher Walken as the music producer, Bruce Dickenson. More Cowbell.dj allows you to cowbell any song you want and even add some Walken to the mix. I got a fever and the only prescription is cowbell.

# Making Music with the Arduino: Wires, Solder, and Sound Round-Up

Michael Una writes:

I received my Arduino Diecemila in the mail last week and have started to experiment with using it to synthesize audio and video. I’m not very experienced with programming microcontrollers, so I’ve been doing a lot of research to see what’s out there, and it’s greatly encouraging to see that people are taking this little kit in fun directions.

# Pipe Organ Chair – This is a pipe organ chair that plays a tune when you sit down (insert your musical furniture joke here).

# Advanced Mega-Round-Up: Going Microtonal with Synths

Peter Kirn writes:

Digital software instruments give you opportunities to explore new sounds and timbres, so why not add tuning to the list? Kore@CDM contributor and sound designer Eoin Rossney helps us navigate the potentially intimidating world of microtuning. Microtonal sound simply refers, generally, to tunings beyond the now-standard 12-Tone Equal Temperament we find on modern pianos. First off, microtuning doesn’t have to sound dissonant or “out of tune” – like other choices with synthesis, it can simply give you some new sonic abilities. Native Instruments’ synths are well-suited to the task, as many having tuning capabilities built-in. If you’re using plug-ins to assist your microtonal voyage, Kore is a natural with its plug-in hosting capabilities. But the most important thing is just to dive in somewhere and see what happens – with no physical instrument to retune, it’s something anyone can do.
