Fairlight CC-2

Fairlight has announced the release of CC-2, its next generation audio engine.

CC-2 is based on Fairlight’s Crystal Core Technology, powering their entire range of high-speed digital audio mixing, recording and editing systems, delivering guaranteed performance and increased efficiencies in the largest and most complex productions.

“Traditional approaches to audio processing are not enough in today’s high-track-count, multi-channel immersive surround mixing environments,” commented Tino Fibaek, Chief Technology Officer of Fairlight. “The new CC-2 guarantees rock-solid performance for our customers, with no limits. Creativity should never be limited by technology”.

CC-2 features

  • One Thousand Channels
    Track counts and surround formats of today’s film and television productions require a more advanced and more scalable alternative to outdated DSP based solutions, which is why Fairlight has moved to the more advanced FPGA-based CC-2 technology. Providing 1,000 hard disk playback channels, 100 live inputs and 100+ output buses available, the CC-2 system is the fastest and most powerful audio engine ever made, perfectly suited to today’s submersive surround sound formats, including Dolby® Atmos™, DTS® MDA and NHK’s 22.2.
  • Enhanced Productivity
    Tightly integrated with Fairlight’s editing and mixing environment, the new CC-2 enables a range of productivity-enhancing features including an entirely new 64 bit codebase, advanced delay compensation, and faster than real-time bounce to name just a few. With equalisation, dynamics, plug-ins and inserts always on every input and bus with near zero latency, unlimited headroom and legendary sound quality, Fairlight users will now be able to tackle larger projects, with more tracks, more processing power, and more speed with ease.
  • Accelerated Workflow
    CC-2 is a quantum leap in processing power and when combined with Fairlight’s intuitive user interface, tactile control surfaces featuring their patented, self-labelling Picture Key Technology, and tight integration with third-party storage, media asset management systems or video collaboration environments, Fairlight delivers the fastest workflows of any system on the market. When faced with tight deadlines, you can rely on Fairlight to help you deliver a quality product, on time, every time, at least 20% faster than on competitive systems.
  • Invest in your future
    Continuing a long tradition of seamless upgrade paths, Fairlight has ensured that CC-2 is also compatible with audio hardware purchased for CC-1. This means that owners of Fairlight systems don’t need to replace their current audio interfaces and control surfaces to upgrade to CC-2. Existing investments in Fairlight’s high-quality hardware continues to be supported, maximising the return of investment on existing equipment.

BOSS announces GP-10, GT-001, VE-2 & GT-100 version 2.0 update

BOSS has announced the GP-10 and GT-001 guitar processors, the VE-2 vocal harmonist, and a version 2.0 update of the GT-100 amp effects processor.

BOSS GP-10

GP-10: Guitar Processor

The new GP-10 puts a universe of amazing tones and tunings at your command, all in one compact processor that’s affordable and easy to use. With a Roland GK-compatible pickup on your guitar, the GP-10 lets you transform your sound into numerous classic electric and acoustic guitar types, basses, and even analog-modeled synths, including the legendary Roland GR-300. Not stopping there, you have access to instant altered tunings, including popular open tunings, 12-string tones, and “down” tunings that are essential for today’s ultra-heavy rock styles.

The versatile GP-10 also functions as a full-featured multi-effects processor for both GK and normal pickups, giving you a huge selection of COSM® amps and effects for live playing and studio recording. In addition, USB connectivity lets you capture GP-10 tones directly into your DAW, and you can even play computer-based soft synths from your axe with the GP-10’s guitar-to-MIDI convertor!

GT-001: Guitar Effects Processor

The GT-001 packs the acclaimed amps and effects of the flagship GT-100 Version 2.0 in a stylish desktop processor for your home studio or mobile rig. Its small size fits easily into any workspace, while the intuitive interface makes it simple to dial up world-class tones for recording and practice.

BOSS GT-001

In addition to the guitar input, an XLR mic input is included for capturing vocals or acoustic instruments, and the built-in USB audio/MIDI interface provides a direct connection for creating music with your favorite DAW.

Like the GT-100, the GT-001 offers powerful sound creation possibilities with dual amps and effects chains and flexible routing options. On top of that, a newly developed guitar-to-MIDI function lets you have fun with Guitar Friend Jam and other computer programs from a normal guitar input—no special pickup required! Available as a free download, the BOSS TONE STUDIO software provides a cool graphical interface for tweaking tones from your computer, plus access to BOSS TONE CENTRAL for free studio-ready patches and much more.

BOSS VE-2

VE-2: Vocal Harmonist

Combining sophisticated sound with simple operation, the VE-2 Vocal Harmonist delivers a complete effects solution for all singers, particularly those that perform with guitar. This portable, battery-powered stompbox has everything you need to create polished, studio-quality sounds everywhere you sing, from concert stages and street performances to practicing and having fun at home.

The VE-2 magically creates beautiful harmonized vocals that follow your singing, with pitch that automatically tracks the chords played on a connected guitar, a preset key, or a combination of the two. Using one of these three operation modes, it’s easy to create perfect real-time harmonies in any key, even if you have no experience with gear or music theory.

In addition to harmony, the VE-2 provides essential effects to enhance your voice, such as high-quality reverb/delay and an enhancer with real-time pitch correction. Also included is a USB audio function that allows you to connect to your computer and easily capture impressive VE-2 vocal sounds for music recordings, social media videos, and more.

GT-100: Amp Effects Processor

With the new GT-100 Version 2.0 update, BOSS’ flagship multi-effects processor is now even more powerful than before, adding a host of great new features to its already formidable arsenal.

BOSS GT-100

Two new amp types are included, along with cutting-edge MDP effects, an acoustic guitar simulator, and an improved rotary effect. A convenient Guitar-to-MIDI function is on board as well, letting you have fun with Guitar Friend Jam and other computer software using your normal guitar.

The GT-100’s USB audio capabilities have been expanded too, providing greater flexibility for re-amping applications. And with the BOSS TONE STUDIO software, you can now edit GT-100 patches from a friendly graphical interface on your computer.
