Audiotechracy releases free guitar patches for Reason

Audiotechracy has announced a collection of free guitar patches for Propellerhead Reason.

Audiotechracy Guitar Patches for Reason

After the success of the ‘Rock and Metal Drums ReFill Vol.1′ that I released a while back I have decided to follow that up with a set of guitar patches for you all to try. Rather that releasing this in the form of a ReFill, this time the download is in the form of just a Reason file with the patches all lined up in it for you.

The reason for doing this is that some of the patches are wah devices and include the automation lanes for the wah effect within the file. Also, whilst all of the patches are based in a Reason audio track, some of them use audio tracks paired up with Propellerhead Combinator patches built on the Line6 guitar rig (I’ve used the ‘Thrash Metal Rig’ one, but toned it down a bit). I could have built all the effects into Combinator patches and then released that as just a single unit, but I wanted to make these patches as accessible as possible to everyone. So no loading up patches or connecting things up to different audio channels then having to automate the wah yourself.

With these patches you just plug your guitar in, select the patch you want and off you go. If you want to then use these in Reason projects rather than just for practicing with then you can copy and paste them over to your tracks in the usual way.

The patches are a free download at Audiotechracy.

High-Performance Guitar Amp with 5-Speaker Stereo Design

AMPLIFi is unlike any amplifier ever built. The five-speaker stereo design delivers stunningly detailed guitar tones, from crystal-clear highs to deep and smooth low end. Featuring two tweeters, two mid-bass drivers, and a custom guitar speaker, AMPLIFi covers a far wider frequency spectrum than any other guitar amplifier, delivering sonic details traditional amps simply can’t produce. AMPLIFi is available in a powerful 150-watt model or portable 75-watt version, both of which can deliver ear-splitting volume levels.

Streaming Bluetooth Speaker System

AMPLIFi is the ultimate Bluetooth speaker system for guitarists, featuring streaming compatibility with Android™, iOS, Mac® and PC devices. The full-range speakers deliver amazing sound, while the custom guitar speaker functions as a thumping subwoofer. AMPLIFi combines playing and enjoying music like no other system, enabling guitarists to jam along with songs in their music library, play back tracks during band rehearsal, or crank up the volume at parties.

iOS App Control and Cloud Connection

The AMPLIFi Remote app for iOS introduces a new world of possibilities. Instead of using static knobs or tiny screens, guitarists can now control every aspect of their tones from an iOS device.* AMPLIFi Remote also introduces revolutionary Line 6 tone-matching technology, which automatically serves up guitar tones that match tracks in a guitarist’s music library.

With a cloud community of guitarists uploading their best patches, AMPLIFi Remote provides a unique and powerful resource for finding guitar tones. Within the cloud community, guitarists can rate their favorite tones, upload their own, and build their musical network by connecting with other musicians and fans. The AMPLIFi cloud automatically keeps all devices up to date and synchronized. Guitarists can store an unlimited number of presets in the cloud–and access them anywhere.

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Jun 25, 2013 - comment 0 comments

Line 6 has announced its new Relay V75-SC, a 14-channel digital wireless handheld microphone/transmitter with super-cardioid dynamic capsule.

Line 6 Relay V75-SC
Designed for use with the XD-V75 digital wireless system, Relay V75-SC isolates vocals while rejecting stage noise, resulting in supreme vocal clarity and articulation.

V75-SC is the first Line 6 vocal wireless solution to be released under the Relay brand. XD-V75, XD-V55 and XD-V35 vocal wireless systems will also join G-series instrument wireless solutions as part of the industry-standard Relay family—giving musicians a single source for the best-sounding, most reliable wireless in the industry.

“Discerning vocalists require a microphone that delivers pristine sound quality, even on loud or crowded stages,” said Max Gutnik, Vice President of Products, Line 6. “Relay V75-SC features a super-cardioid polar pattern that delivers excellent on-axis response while preventing feedback and bleed-in from other instruments—giving vocalists the confidence they need to deliver their best performances.”

Featuring 24-bit audio quality, 10Hz to 20kHz frequency response and a wide dynamic range of up to 118dB (A weighted), the Relay V75-SC signal is so clear and strong that it sounds and performs like a wired microphone. Thanks to compander-free Line 6® digital wireless technology, Relay V75-SC allows vocalists to convey every nuance of their performances to the audience with crystal clarity.

Relay V75-SC also offers four exceptional microphone models—including three based on the world’s most celebrated super-cardioid live mics—allowing vocalists to choose the perfect sound to match their voice, performance style and venue.

Relay V75-SC is a durable, dependable microphone transmitter designed to provide reliable performance night after night. The rugged metal body is engineered to withstand the elements and minimize handling noise. A custom hard-shell touring case with soft inner padding protects Relay V75-SC while traveling.

The Relay V75-SC is now shipping.

Line6 has also announced updates to its XD-V55HS, Relay G90, Relay G50 and Relay G30 digital wireless systems.

The XD-V55HS digital wireless system is now available with a tan headset option (in addition to black), allowing performers and spoken word presenters to choose the finish that’s right for them.

The free v2.0 firmware update for Relay G90, Relay G50 and Relay G30 guitar wireless systems allows guitarists to switch between RF1 and RF2 operating modes, enabling compatibility with other RF2 devices such as the Line 6 XD-V series. Additionally, RF2 operating mode enables 14-channel operation for the Relay G90 system, and reduces impact on other devices operating in the 2.4GHz space.
