TC Electronic intros Reverb 8 for System 6000

Related: , , , , , , , , Posted in news on Feb 28, 2014 - comment 0 comments

TC Electronic has announced Reverb 8, a new infinite channel reverb algorithm for TC Electronic’s highly acclaimed System 6000 audio processing platform.

TC Electronic Reverb 8

A single System 6000 MKII frame is capable of running two Reverb 8 instances, delivering 16 output channels of ultra-realistic space. For an even higher channel count, multiple System 6000 MKII frames can be linked in a network, offering reverb for virtually any channel-count.

Reverb 8 may be fed with any input signal – mono, stereo, 5.1, 7.1, etc. – and deliver to an infinite number of output channels, perfectly suited for e.g. Dolby Atmos (up to 62.2 surround), Barco Auro (11.1 surround) or NHK’s multichannel broadcast format Super Hi-Vision (22.2 surround). In short, Reverb 8 goes from mono to infinity, or anywhere in between.

“For more than two decades of developing and refining some of the world’s finest room simulators, we have had the infinite “Lego brick” reverb as a goal. One missing link was the ability to add credible envelopment without artifacts even when a source already contained plenty of spatial information, for instance natural reverb from a microphone pick-up,” says Thomas Lund, CTO for Broadcast & Production at TC Electronic. “Reverb 8 has that essential quality without reverting to modulation. At the same time, high density distribution is becoming available. We’re confident artists, producers and audiences everywhere will reckon the super-natural 3D sound improvement Reverb 8 has to offer.”

Reverb 8 is available to purchase for $1,825 USD. It is also available as part of Film 6000. Reverb 8 is compatible with the System 6000 MKII mainframe only.

Focusrite announces RedNet D16 AES – 16-channel AES3 I/O for Dante audio networks

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Feb 07, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Focusrite has announced RedNet D16 AES, a 1U 19in rack-mount interface featuring 16 channels of AES/EBU connectivity to and from a Dante audio network, with Ethernet redundancy for maximum network reliability.

Focusrite RedNet D16 AES

Perfect for bridging between digital consoles, power amplifiers or any other AES3 equipped audio equipment and a Dante network, RedNet D16 AES has a Sample Rate Convertor (SRC) on each input pair allowing instant operation with any AES3 source. Word Clock and Digital Audio Reference Signal (DARS) connections provides synchronisation with a wide range of hardware, while S/PDIF I/O allows the integration of equipment such as CD or solid state recorders/players.

Two DB25 connectors each provide eight channels of combined I/O to the AES59 standard, allowing speedy interconnection with other DB25-connected or XLR-based equipment by use of standard DB25 to XLR cables. The rear-panel XLR female input can be used either as a DARS sync source for the Dante system, or as an AES3 audio source replacing input channels 1–2 on the DB25 connectors. An XLR male socket provides a duplicated AES3 outlet for output channels 1–2. The RCA S/PDIF input can similarly replace input channels 3–4 of the DB25 connectors, while the S/PDIF output can replicate any adjacent odd/even pair of the 16 output channels.

The two network connectors on the rear of the unit allow two modes of operation. They can be used either as a primary/redundant network interface, allowing seamless switchover in the case of network failure, or as a daisy-chain port allowing the connection of multiple units.

All the clocking and input/output options of RedNet D16 AES are remotely-controlled by the RedNet Control software application for Mac and PC.

Focusrite RedNet will be discussing and demonstrating the full range of RedNet products at the AV Networking World event, taking place 4th February at the Amsterdam Holiday Inn during ISE.

The RedNet D16 AES has a U.S. MSRP of $1899.99 USD.
