MBLOK memory device launches on Kickstarter

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

Kwelea has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund its MBLOK memory storage device.

MBLOK
MBLOK is a secure personal mobile storage with Bluetooth and USB interfaces that is designed to have long battery life.

By pairing the MBLOK with all of your devices through Bluetooth, you can use it just like local memory. However, instead of transferring files between devices, they are all stored in one location.

Stream movies, music and access files on the go with up to 300 hours of battery life without need for internet access. Plug in to PC and upload data similarly to a flash drive while charging the MBLOK simultaneously.

In addition, it is so small that it can fit in your pocket yet has up to 256 GB of storage space.

This project is looking to raise $120,000 CAD by June 16th, 2014.

Audiowerkstatt releases midi-clock-shifter

Related: , , , Posted in news on May 16, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Audiowerkstatt has launched midi-clock-shifter, a device that allows you to move your MIDI-slave as many MIDI-clock-ticks as you want forward or backward, while running in synchronisation to the MIDI-master.

Audiowerkstatt midi-clock-shifter
A 7-segment-display shows the direction and number of MIDI-clock-ticks, the MIDI-slave has been moved.

A tool, for on-the-fly correction of a MIDI-slave, that is not reliable or to push a loop, that is not recorded in a rhythm, to that rhythm. And a tool to have fun with playing around with two sequencers and do things like e.g. going slightly forward and backward with one of them.

You can set whether only the MIDI-clock and MMC commands (start, stop, continue) are sent or the MIDI-data, received at the MIDI-in, will be mixed with that.

The midi-clock-shifter is available for purchase for 149 EUR.

Simmons intros SD1500KIT electronic drums

Related: , , , Posted in news on May 12, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Simmons has announced the SD1500KIT, its new flagship electronic drums model.

Simmons SD1500KIT

With a host of features at a surprisingly affordable price, the new Simmons SD1500KIT breaks new ground as the most realistic and full featured electronic drum kit in its class. While most of today’s affordable electronic drum sets compromise on sound or ergonomics, the Simmons SD1500KIT is the first electronic kit of its kind to deliver a wide-ranging palette of ultra-realistic sounds in a full-sized, full featured, professional quality drum set that focuses on both sound and feel.

The SD1500KIT starts with a full sized, ergonomically designed 6-piece drum kit plus hi-hat, three multi-zone cymbals, and a host of features typically reserved for only the highest priced electronic kits. With a total of 22 specific trigger points, the SD1500KIT is designed to deliver the most responsive, realistic drum performance possible. Its hex-shaped blue anodized frame and die-cast aluminum hardware feature memory lock mounts for speedy setup and maximum stability. Simmons’ exclusive multi-position hi-hat pedal and triple-zone snare pad deliver unprecedented responsiveness, and its crash cymbals offer dual zone and choke capability.

The SD1500KIT electronic drum kit doesn’t scrimp on sound, either. Simmons’ flagship SD1000 Digital Sound Module has been upgraded and enhanced with a completely new custom sound library featuring more than 500 ultra-realistic samples of the most popular classic and modern drum kits. With full 64 voice polyphony, full programmability, and powerful on-board processing, Simmons’ exclusive Variable Attack Response programming delivers some of the most responsive dynamic velocity sensitivity available, with alternating sample playback for even more realistic, expressive sound.

“This exciting new kit truly outshines and outplays anything else in its class,” remarkedJim Norman, Simmons Product Manager.”The new SD1500KIT is ideal for drummers looking for a low-volume rehearsal kit, for schools or churches needing a full size, low-impact stage setup, or for small and mid-sized project studios where recording acoustic drums might not be an option. Whether you’re practicing, recording, or performing, the SD1500KIT is designed to deliver the goods.”

The Simmons SD1500KIT electronic drum is available for purchase $999.99 USD.
