MOTU ships UltraLite AVB audio interface

Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on Feb 19, 2015 - comment 0 comments

MOTU has announced it is now shipping the UltraLite AVB, a compact 18-input, 18-output audio interface with DSP mixing, wireless control, AVB audio networking and best-in-class analog audio quality for on-the-go mobile audio recording.

MOTU UltraLite AVB

The latest in MOTU’s award-winning UltraLite series, the UltraLite AVB provides more I/O than previous models, with separate mic and guitar inputs (two each), 8-channel ADAT optical (switchable to stereo TOSLink), 6 x 8 balanced quarter-inch analog I/O and MIDI IN/OUT jacks, all housed in a rugged aluminum alloy half-rack chassis that slides easily into a backpack.

The balanced analog outputs achieve a measured dynamic range of 117 dB, rivaling the audio quality of interfaces at much higher price points.

Expanded DSP doubles the available processing power for the redesigned console-style mixer, which provides 48 inputs, 12 stereo busses and 32-bit floating point effects processing, including modeled analog EQ, vintage compression and classic reverb. Matrix routing lets users quickly patch ins to outs, or split inputs to multiple destinations. Users can even use the UltraLite AVB as a stand-alone mixer and control everything wirelessly from innovative web app software running on their iPad™, iPhone™, tablet, smartphone and laptop.

“Like its predecessors, the UltraLite AVB delivers an impressive combination of superb audio quality and innovative features that truly set it apart from other mobile audio interfaces,” said Jim Cooper, MOTU Director of Marketing.

The UltraLite AVB connects to a computer through AVB Ethernet or audio class compliant hi-speed USB 2.0 (compatible with USB 3.0 and iOS) and records at sample rates up to 192 kHz.

Through AVB Ethernet, users can connect another MOTU AVB interface for more I/O — or connect to an expanded MOTU AVB network with multiple interfaces and computers.

The UltraLite AVB is available for purchase for $649 USD.

Rane intros MP2015 Rotary Mixer & TTM57mkII for Serato DJ

Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on Jan 26, 2015 - comment 0 comments

Rane has introduced the MP2015 rotary DJ mixer, a no-compromise music-mixing performance instrument.

Rane MP2015

Control, sound, reliability and durability distinguish Rane’s new techno house club mixer for high-end audio systems.

Born from a legacy of rotary club mixers beginning in 1971 with Rudy Bozak’s CMA-10-2DL, on to 1982 and UREI’s 1620, then in 1999 Rane’s MP2016/XP2016 combo, and now in 2015, the MP2015 represents the next revival and evolution.

With over 40 years of rotary mixer experience to draw on, along with collaboration and input from the world’s best techno house DJs, the MP2015 is the best mixer produced by Rane—ever. There are no compromises in the design. It has the best sound, the best features, the best feel, and the best reliability and durability.

Rane has also introduced the TTM57mkII for Serato DJ, a plug-and-play 2-deck turntablist mixer with two USB ports and software controls.

Rane TTM57mkII

When introduced in 2006 the TTM57SL broke ground as the first ever DJ mixer with built-in USB sound card and tightly integrated Serato software controls. When discontinued in 2013, the TTM57SL had developed a cult-like following.

The TTM57mkII stays true to its original design by supporting familiar workflow while improving performance and software integration. Updated software controls include silicone RGB backlit pads for triggering 4 cue points per deck or the SP-6 sampler. Classic joystick controls toggle slip, instant doubles, internal mode, censor, and transform. Dedicated auto-loop & loop roll controls with back-lit buttons. Intuitive Serato DJ iZotope FX controls for easy & quick access.

The mixer features Rane’s exclusive dual USB port architecture for intuitive DJ change over and supports creative dual computer applications. The TTM57mkII is a classic reborn.

Slate Digital intros Mix/Master & Mix/Master/FX bundles

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Jan 26, 2015 - comment 0 comments

Slate Digital has announced Mix/Master & Mix/Master/FX bundles, offering an entire virtual analog studio, starting at $19.99 USD per month.

Slate Digital Mix/Master Bundle

One of the key missions of Slate Digital is to give audio engineers access to all the amazing tools that they’ve ever dreamed of, and for a price that makes them worry more about making music rather than worry about their bank account. But last summer, our friends at Gobbler introduced us to an idea that would allow people to better experience our products and use them more efficiently, creatively, and affordably. Introducing the Mix/Master bundle and Mix/Master/FX bundle.

With the Mix/Master bundle, you get every single Slate Digital product, and every single Slate Digital update and future product for $19.99 per month. That’s a full arsenal of tape machines, analog mixing consoles, vintage eqs, classic compressors, mastering limiters, and so much more in the pipeline coming soon. And again, when you join the subscription, you don’t just get what Slate Digital has now, but you’ll get new plugins throughout the year for free as long as you subscribe.

PreSonus intros StudioLive 64AI & 48AI Mix Systems

PreSonus has announced two new StudioLive AI Mix Systems that deliver large-format channel counts, recording, powerful DSP, and more for under $7,000.

PreSonus StudioLive AI Mix Systems

Available in 48- and 64-channel frame sizes, StudioLive AI Mix Systems consists of two cascaded StudioLive AI consoles, a joining bracket that locks the two mixers together, a PreSonus PRM1 Precision Reference Microphone, and a custom dust cover.

StudioLive AI Mix Systems perform as a cohesive mixer and offer a familiar, surface-driven workflow with one-to-one control over every parameter. Every channel is routed through the bus outputs of the Master mixer and every global setting is controlled from the Master to provide seamless integration between the two cascaded consoles. All the power and performance available to a single StudioLive AI mixer are available to cascaded StudioLive AI Mix Systems.

Each StudioLive AI Mix System provides a robust audio interface, making it easy to record and playback audio as well as to use your favorite plugins as inserts on any of channel. Connect each mixer to a wireless router with a standard Ethernet cable and you’re ready to remote control your StudioLive AI Mix System from an iPad or iPhone or go wireless using the included USB WiFi LAN adapters.

The StudioLive 64AI Mix System cascades two StudioLive 32.4.2AI mixers to create a 64-channel system with 80 x 66, continuously bidirectional FireWire 800 recording interface; 26 mix buses, including 8 effects buses (for 4 reverb and 4 delay processors), and a whopping 558 discrete EQ and dynamics processors. This feature-rich, 64-channel mixing system is a fraction of the size, weight, and price of a conventional large-format digital console yet offers features no console anywhere near its price class can match.

The StudioLive 48AI Mix System consists of two cascaded StudioLive 24.4.2AI mixers, giving you a 48-channel console with an onboard 64 x 50 FireWire 800 recording interface; 22 total mix buses, including 8 effects buses; and DSP processing on every channel and bus for a total of 438 EQ and dynamics processors.

Like every StudioLive AI mixer, the StudioLive 64AI and 48AI Mix System include the StudioLive Software Library. The library includes PreSonus’ Capture™ live recording software, Studio One® Artist DAW, VSL-AI with Smaart Measurement Technology™ for Mac® and Windows®, SL Remote-AI for iPad®, and QMix™-AI for iPhone®/iPod® touch, plus a free account with PreSonus’ Nimbit® online direct-to-fan marketing and distribution service.

PreSonus StudioLive 64AI and 48AI Mix Systems are available for an expected street price of $6,999.95 USD and $5,499.95 USD, respectively.
