UNTERLASS Studio Furniture expands studio furniture range

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Jan 03, 2013 - comment 0 comments

UNTERLASS Studio Furniture has announced availability of the MONO 16 and MONO 30 floor racks for its flexible range of quality professional products.

Today’s budget-conscious climate has resulted in many musicians choosing to record in their own highly- personalised workspaces, often at home. Design consciousness is arguably at an all-time high, but what do you do when what you want does not exist? Why, design and build it yourself, of course! Which is exactly what Austrian Arno Unterlass did: UNTERLASS Studio Furniture by name, studio furniture by nature.

Hot on the heels of the company’s successful DUODESK 60 launch product — billed as being a one-man media production workspace for recording, mastering, and mixing — and clever, keyboard- accommodating DUODESK 60 KEY follow-up comes two matching floor racks to accompany either of those desks… perfect for those who just can’t get enough outboard!

Unterlass MONO 16

As implied by name, the MONO 16 features a slightly-angled, front-facing floor-level vertical 16HE rack (and a rear-mounted horizontal 4HE rack) with a flat surface area above to accommodate whatever users wish to position on there (within reason).

Its modular design means that multiple MONO 16s can be neatly lined up alongside one another to easily expand the system (if and when the need arises).

Unterlass MONO 30

Meanwhile, the MONO 30 takes a different design approach, perfectly mirroring the end profile of both the DUODESK 60 and DUODESK 60 KEY desks for expansion purposes.

It includes 30HE of rack space, shared across its 10-degree-angled desktop-mounted rack (10HE), front-facing floor-level vertical rack (16HE), and rear-mounted horizontal rack (4HE).

Optional white (alternative colour) or ‘Zebrano’ (deluxe wooden) finishes enhance the look and feel of the MONO 16 and MONO 30. Pricing upon request.

The MONO 16 and MONO 32 are available to purchase for 540 EUR / 690 EUR respectively (excluding VAT). Production time is approximately four weeks from order placement, and shipping is available from 100 EUR (excluding VAT), depending on destination. Both racks are securely supplied flat-packed in a wooden crate with instructions for relatively simple self-assembly.

UNTERLASS introduces keyboardists’ dream desk: DUODESK KEY 60

Unterlass Duodesk Key 60

Unterlass Studio Furniture has announced the Duodesk Key 60, the latest addition to its flexible range of quality professional products proudly manufactured in Austria.

Hot on the heels of the company’s successful DUODESK 60 launch product — billed as being a one-man media production workspace for recording, mastering, and mixing — comes the DUODESK 60 KEY. Confirms company founder Arno Unterlass: “The DUODESK 60 was the first furniture I designed and built; the next step was to integrate a keyboard shelf capable of handling heavy master keyboards. After a lot of research and prototype-building, the DUODESK KEY 60 was born. Its pull-out drawer enables composers and songwriters to work with large master keyboards, which can be rolled out from underneath the desk surface. An industrial- engineered guidance system ensures the necessary stability and strength required to handle the static and dynamic loads imposed at very low installation heights.”

The DUODESK KEY 60 is available as standard in a silk matt black lacquered finish for €2,225.00 EURO (excluding VAT). Featuring a cleverly-concealed cable management system, its two 10-degree-angled desktop-mounted side racks (10HE each), two front-facing floor-level vertical side racks (12HE each), and two rear-mounted horizontal racks (4HE each) all amount to a lot of rack space — surely enough to satisfy most recording requirements, while its ergonomic shape, look, and feel simplifies workflow. The height- adjustable keyboard drawer can comfortably accommodate master keyboards up to 170cm wide and 16cm high — including the likes of Doepfer Musikelektronik’s monstrous, heavy-duty flight-cased, 88-note LMK4+ example, with the front of the desk’s armrest panel being custom profiled to exactly match the purchaser’s master keyboard.

DUODESK KEY 60 features

  • Max. keyboard width / height: 170 / 16cm.
  • Linear guidance system.

UNTERLASS Studio Furniture opens for business with DUODESK 60

All-new high-end studio furniture-maker UNTERLASS Studio Furniture has opened its doors for business throughout the European Union, offering a flexible range of quality professional products proudly manufactured in Austria.

Unterlass Studio Furniture Duodesk 60
Unterlass Studio Furniture’s Duodesk 60 in various configurations.

Today’s budget-conscious climate has resulted in many musicians choosing to record in their own highly- personalised workspaces, often at home. Design consciousness is arguably at an all-time high, but what do you do when what you want does not exist? Why, design and build it yourself, of course! Which is exactly what Austrian Arno Unterlass did: UNTERLASS Studio Furniture by name, studio furniture by nature.

So who better, then, to take up the UNTERLASS Studio Furniture story than the namesake company founder himself: “In 2009 I wanted to buy a desk for my own recording studio, but there was nothing on the market that fitted my needs, in terms of ergonomics, design, and materials. As a musician and producer myself, I knew exactly what I wanted: the look and feel of a studio — without having to buy a big analogue mixing console. I rendered the first prototype of the DUODESK 60 in 3D, then built it for real. This was exactly what I wanted — lacquered finish, open backs, and lots of space for rack units. The reason why I formed the company was that I got so many requests from people who wanted exactly the same desk.”

Billed as being a one-man media production workspace for recording, mastering, and mixing, today the DUODESK 60 is available as standard in a silk matt black lacquered finish for €1,780.00 EURO (excluding VAT). Featuring a cleverly-concealed cable management system, its two 10-degree-angled desktop-mounted side racks (10HE each), two front-facing floor-level vertical side racks (16HE each), and two rear-mounted horizontal racks (4HE each) all amount to a lot of rack space — surely enough to satisfy most recording requirements, while its ergonomic shape, look, and feel simplifies workflow, creating the impression of being in a professional studio environment — perfect for impressing clients, whether working in a fully professionally-designed studio or otherwise.

Various configuration options enhance the look, feel, and functionality of the DUODESK 60: deluxe (alternative ‘Zebrano’ wooden finish); flexi (extends the desk width by 20cm or 50cm); master (adds another angled 10HE rack space within the desk’s ‘sweet spot’); white (alternative colour finish). Pricing upon request.

Production time is approximately four weeks from order placement, and shipping is available from 100 EUR (excluding VAT), depending on destination. All desks are securely supplied flat-packed in a wooden crate with instructions for relatively simple self assembly. No need to widen any doors!

Brainworx announces bx_rockrack and Rock’n’Roll product line of plugins

Brainworx has announced bx_rockrack, the first plug-in in its new Rock’n’Roll line of plug-ins.

The first product to be presented in this video sneak preview shows the soon-to-be-released bx_rockrack Guitar Amp plugin, and reveals the totally new approach Brainworx has taken to model not only a guitar amplifier and a speaker, but to “digitally capture” the whole recording chain of the NEVE VXS 72 equipped Brainworx Studio in Germany.

Unlike most other digital guitar plugins bx_rockrack does not offer models of “57 amps, 68 cabinets and 273 microphones”, but 3 GREAT SOUNDING AMPS (clean, crunch, lead – modeled with the typical BX quality, of course), and for the first time ever the complete recording chains of some of the best real-world studios out there (read below)!

Each recording chain contains the guitar power amp, the speaker cabinet, the microphone(s), mic preamp and console EQ, plus even the post-production effects needed to produce walls-of-sound ready to be released on any major label production. And.. bx_rockrack is as easy to operate as a real guitar rack!

A guitar, a DI box and bx_rockrack, that´s all you need to rock & roll.
Yes, we’re serious about this statement.

The PRO version will even enable you to use your own, real guitar amplifier or preamp to record through the recording chains we have captured, and to play our modeled amps live through your speaker cabinet on stage.

The recording sound of international top studios – in your computer!

After just finishing to capture the Brainworx Studio we will be in Los Angeles at the end of April to capture the recording chain of one of the world’s best-known rock guitar sound studios, famous and responsible for many of your favorite rock & metal CDs! Stay tuned for more info soon.
