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

Mackie has announced the all-new Creative Reference Multimedia Monitor Series, delivering the studio-quality design, sound and performance you expect from Mackie monitors in extremely desktop-friendly, compact designs that are amazingly affordable.

Mackie CR4

The series includes two models – the CR3 and CR4 – with 3-inch or 4-inch woofers that pump out an impressive amount of deep, punchy low end and 3/4-inch silk-dome tweeters that deliver smooth, articulate highs. CR monitors also feature a sleek, curved high-frequency waveguide for wide, even dispersion of sound and a well-defined, immersive stereo image. In addition, all-wood cabinets and custom-tuned rear ports provide a natural warmth to the sound that only true studio reference monitors can provide. With a combination of high-quality components and professional build quality, Creative Reference monitors deliver an affordable solution for those looking to step up from cheap, plastic computer speakers or for audio/video professionals looking for compact, but amazing-sounding studio monitors.

“When mixing audio or creating media, it’s critical that your audio translate across all the various speakers and headphones listeners will use,” commented Matt Redmon, Mackie Senior Product Manager. “Even if you are just enjoying a video or music, our new Creative Reference monitors will let you hear every nuance and detail the producer intended.”

Mackie Creative Reference monitors offer some truly convenient features that deliver real flexibility for both professional and personal applications. Unique to the line, a left/right speaker placement switch allows users to locate the volume control on the left or right of their workstation. The front panel includes a on/off/volume knob with a lit power indication ring that will also control the volume of headphones, which can be plugged directly into the front of the monitors. Great for comparing mixes, auditioning files or just enjoying a bit of music or video, there’s also a front-panel aux input for simple connection of a media device.

“With smartphones always at our side, you can easily find yourself creating professional multimedia one minute and streaming a video the next,” commented Redmon. “With our new Creative Reference monitors, you get the best of both worlds…studio-quality performance, an extremely compact design ideal for smaller workstations and smart features perfect creativity on any level.”

Creative Reference monitors come with all the connecting cables needed for the user to get started immediately. As a bonus, there’s even a pair of acoustic isolation pads included. Used in professional applications, acoustic isolation pads minimize unwanted bass buildup that can muddy a mix. Plus, the pads’ angled design allow the user to tilt the monitors slightly up or down for more focused listening depending on their setup.

“So whether you’re a seasoned pro looking for a compact pair of accurate, articulate monitors for work or just looking for a pair of amazing-sounding speakers for entertainment, Mackie’s new Creative Reference monitors are an affordable solution that deliver professional results in our most compact form factor to date,” concluded Redmon.

The new Mackie CR3 and CR4 monitors will be available for purchase in pairs in August 2014, priced at MSRP $129.99 USD (CR3) / $199.99 USD (CR4).

PreSonus updates Studio One to v2.6

PreSonus has announced the release of version 2.6 of Studio One, a significant upgrade to the company’s award-winning digital audio workstation software for Mac and Windows that adds groundbreaking integration with PreSonus StudioLive AI-series mixers, Nimbit, and SoundCloud and more than 50 other improvements and workflow enhancements.

When you launch Studio One 2.6, you’ll immediately notice that the Start page has been enhanced. A new Nimbit dashboard on the Start page provides access to up-to-date Nimbit® user account statistics (number of fans, number of active promotions, and sales) directly from Studio One.

In addition, the user receives help messages on how to engage with fans and customers and boost sales.

A new SoundCloud™ dashboard displays key statistics from a user’s SoundCloud account, as well as a scrolling display of the SoundCloud activity stream.

StudioLive AI-series mixer users will enjoy a special new connection with Studio One. When you record to the newly updated Capture™ 2.1, you can now save StudioLive AI mixer scenes along with your Capture audio. In Capture, this means you can play back audio through the mixer using the original scene that was in use during recording, even if it was recorded on a different StudioLive AI mixer. That’s pretty cool but it’s just the start.

When a Capture 2.1 session is opened in Studio One 2.6 Artist, Producer, or Professional, and a mix scene is present, all the fader, pan, mute, and Fat Channel settings for each track are automatically imported into Studio One. What makes this so great is the new Fat Channel Native Effects™ plug-in, which is a native version of the StudioLive 32.4.2AI mixer’s Fat Channel, including the gate, compressor, limiter, and four-band fully parametric EQ.

With the plug-in and the saved mixer scene, you can play your tracks using the same processing and settings that were being used during recording-even when you don’t have a StudioLive mixer available. The Fat Channel presets are compatible with their StudioLive AI counterparts and can be exported from Studio One to a StudioLive AI mixer via Universal Control. The Fat Channel plug-in also is a regular Native Effects plug-in, so you can use its powerful processing on any of your Studio One tracks and mixes.

Studio One has long integrated with Mackie Control/HUI-compatible hardware controllers; in version 2.6 (all varieties, including Studio One Free), this support has been considerably enhanced. Mackie Control/HUI integration now includes Send slot navigation, Sends support, Control Link mapping, momentary Mute/Solo, Track Edit mode, FX Bypass mode (EQ Button), add insert/send/instrument, plug-in/instrument list and preset list navigation, and more.

The metronome features have been enhanced significantly, including accent and offbeat click, convenient click-track rendering, custom click samples with drag-and-drop and menu options, and even save all metronome settings, including click sounds, as a preset. You also get a visual numerical count-in when you hit the Record button.

Studio One Professional users will enjoy enhancements to the Project page. A new CD time display shows the current CD length of your project, and the Transport bar shows relative song position. The update also delivers improved ISRC text input.

Version 2.6 also adds a long list of workflow and editing improvements, enhancements to the MIDI engine, and more. In fact, the update has so many enhancements and new features that we can’t list most of them here. For a complete list, please see www.presonus.com/products/Studio-One/whats-new.

Studio One 2 is available to purchase for $399 USD (Prefessional) / $199 USD (Producer) / $99 USD (Artist). Prices ex. VAT.
