Universal Audio announces UAD-2 Satellite DUO and QUAD Firewire DSP Accelerator Packages

Universal Audio has announced the impending release of UAD-2 Satellite DUO and QUAD Firewire DSP Accelerator Packages.

UAD-2 Satellite

As the newest members of UA’s UAD-2 Powered Plug-Ins platform, the UAD-2 Satellite family combines DSP acceleration with the plug-and-play simplicity of Firewire 800/400 – perfect for modern, Intel-based iMacs and MacBook Pros.

UAD-2 SatelliteThe UAD-2 Satellite puts the entire UAD Powered Plug-Ins library within easy reach of Firewire 800 and 400-equipped computers; no PCIe card installation required. In developing these UAD plug-ins, UA’s DSP engineers work with leading hardware manufacturers – including Roland, Neve, Studer, dbx, Solid State Logic, Lexicon, Manley, Empirical Labs, Trident, SPL, EMT and more – using their exact schematics, golden units, and experienced ears. This gives computer-based musicians and engineers the warmth and harmonics of classic analog recordings, wherever they mix.

Available in DUO or QUAD processor format (with either two or four Analog Devices SHARC processors, respectively), UAD-2 Satellite packages provide a processing “boost” for digital audio workstations, and include a selection of classic analog emulation plug-ins, right out of the box.

Notable UAD-2 Satellite features include:

  • Access the UAD Powered Plug-Ins library on select Firewire 800 and 400 equipped computers.
  • Compatible with a wide range of modern Intel-based iMacs and MacBook Pros.
  • Run larger mixes in Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, Nuendo, Performer and more – without taxing host computer CPU.
  • 5 models to choose from:
    • DUO (Core).
    • DUO Flexi (w/ $500 Plug-In Voucher).
    • QUAD (Core).
    • QUAD Flexi (w/ $500 Plug-In Voucher).
    • QUAD Omni v5.7 (w/ 50 UAD plug-ins).

The complete line of UAD-2 Satellite DSP Accelerators is slated for a Q1 2011 release with prices starting at $899 MAP USD.

Rupert Neve Designs launches Portico 5024 Quad Mic Amp at AES 2010

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Nov 04, 2010 - comment 0 comments

Rupert Neve Designs is launching the Portico 5024 Quad Mic Amp at the 2010 AES Conference.

Based around custom transformers and class-A topologies, the 5024 combines extraordinary purity with the sweet musical performance expected from a Rupert Neve Design. With four channels of renowned Portico Series preamplification, independent Silk controls, two channels of DI inputs, and an M-S decoder, the 5024 is a workhorse equipped to enhance the front-end performance of any digital or analogue recording system.

For RND’s founder and head designer Mr. Rupert Neve, the real beauty of the 5024 is found on the inside. “Transformers have always been a signature component of my designs, and the implementation of custom transformers with the class-A circuit topologies developed for the Portico Series have drawn on countless years of knowledge. As the result of countless hours of experimentation, these preamplifier designs greatly enhance sonic performance, and make listening a more enjoyable experience. ”

In addition to 72 dB of gain, the 5024′s mic pres include individually selectable phase, mute, phantom power, a selectable frequency high-pass filter, and the Silk circuit, which yields the rich warmth and presence of the renowned classic designs. Channels 1 and 2 of the 5024 feature a high-Z input designed for instrument level sources. Channels 3 and 4 feature an M-S switch, which enables Mid-Side decoding without the use of multiple console channels.

“Versatility has always been a forte of the Portico Series pres,” says RND marketing director Tristan Rhodes. “Engineers ranging from high end producers to project studio hobbyists have learned to trust Portico modules to sound amazing with virtually any source material or microphone. In the context of a four-channel preamplifier, this flexibility, paired with features like Silk, M-S and DI inputs. makes the 5024 a great choice for studios looking to improve their preamp arsenal.”

RedWirez Marshall 1960A/Celestion G12M-25s, free IR library

RedWirez Marshall 1960A/Celestion G12M-25

RedWirez has released a free impulse library of a Marshall 1960A with Celestion G12M 25-watt Greenbacks.

Ah, the legendary Marshall 1960A. Pretty, ain’t it? With its grill-cloth glistening in the bar-light as this beast muscles out power chords in an amaranthine haze of smoke, hot lights and adoring fans… this cab positively reeks of rock… the raucous, beer-soaked, unapologetic kind. Oh, and it sounds great, too.

It was the first cab we ever sampled and is still one of our favorites, so it seems fitting to release these IRs into the wild on Redwirez’ birthday.

Marshall 1960A IR features

  • Loaded with four, well-traveled 25-watt Celestion G12M “Greenbacks”.
  • 17 industry standard mics, so explore countless tonal possibilities: AKG C414B-ULS, Audix D6, Audix i5, Beyerdynamic M160, Coles 4038, Electrovoice RE20, Heil PR30, Neumann KM84, Neumann U47, Neumann U67, Neumann U87, Royer R121, Sennheiser MD409, Sennheiser MD421, Shure SM57, Shure SM7, TAB-Funkenwerk SM57. The paid version also includes DPA 4007, Neumann U47FET, Sennheiser MD441, Unidyne III 545, Earthworks TC30, Neumann M7 on BLUE Bottle, Neumann M8 on BLUE Bottle.
  • Added IRs of the G12M’s impedance curve at varying degrees of prominince (paid version only). These can be used to capture the effect of a tube amp interacting with the speaker. In general, tube amps have a higher output impedance than solid-state amps. As a result the speaker’s frequency response is shaped to varying degrees by it’s own impedance curve. All of our cabs will be getting this update in the near future.
  • Up to 54 positions per mic for a total of 777 IRs (1048 in the paid version)
  • Uncompromising signal chain that won’t add undesirable color to your sound. Bryston 4B -> Cab -> Mic -> Neve 1073 or Earthworks 1022 -> Prism Orpheus.
  • Edited for better phase coherence allowing you to mix multiple IRs.

The Marshall 1960A/G12M cab is available as a free download (valid email address required).

Native Instruments Abbey Road 80s Drums, Kontakt-based drum instrument

Native Instruments Abbey Road 80s Drums

Native Instruments has announced the release of Abbey Road 80s Drums, the third instrument developed together with the iconic British recording studios.

ABBEY ROAD 80s DRUMS contains two characteristic instruments that significantly contributed to the sound of the respective musical decade – a vintage Yamaha 9000, one of the most groundbreaking and mostrecorded kits in music history, and a Slingerland Magnum Chrome with single-headed concert toms and a full set of Octobans, the melodically tuned tubular toms that were popular among drummers of that time.
Both drum kits were set up and sampled with painstaking precision in Abbey Road’s Studio Two and Studio Three, taking full advantage of the acoustic properties of these famous recording rooms.

ABBEY ROAD 80s DRUMS features an especially sophisticated implementation of the typical “gated reverb” technique that enabled the distinctive huge-but-tight drum sound of the 80s. Different sets of ambient microphones were used at Abbey Road to capture additional, strongly compressed versions of the room sound, including a mono overhead signal recorded through a STC 4021 “Ball and Biscuit” microphone and a specially built replica of the SSL E-Series talkback compressor, utilizing a further popular recording trick of that time.

Selected Neve preamps, an analog 2-inch tape machine and other exclusive outboard gear further contribute to the genuine, powerful sound character of ABBEY ROAD 80s DRUMS. Up to 27 velocity layers per instrument, each with up to six additional variation samples, guarantee maximum authenticity both for rhythm programming and for real-time MIDI-controlled playing. The highly functional user interface offers convenient control over all articulation, sound shaping, mixing and routing functions, with envelopes and volume of the gated ambience individually adjustable per instrument group. Advanced randomization can even add subtle nuances to the tone and timing to make it virtually indistinguishable from a studio-recorded drum performance.

Abbey Road 80s Drums is available for purchase in the NI Online Shop on DVD and as a download for $119 USD / 99 EUR.
