ESI SW10K eXperience

Time+Space has announced it is now shipping the ESI SW10K eXperience, a powered studio monitoring subwoofer.

For many, a subwoofer is an essential ingredient for their monitoring system. Although many studio monitors such as the nEar04, nEar05 eXperience or nEar08 eXperience already provide a good bass frequency response, adding a SW10K eXperience will help you to provide a better picture of the low frequencies in your mix.

Whether you are producing classical 2.1 sound or 5.1 / 7.1 surround sound productions, SW10K eXperience will quickly become an important part of your monitoring setup. It´s compact size (even smaller than its predecessor), yet powerful output will easily convince you.

  • 10″ bass reflex powered subwoofer.
  • Amplifier power: 100W@100Hz, 4 Ohm, 0.1% THD.
  • Subwoofer crossover frequency: 50Hz – 250Hz (adjustable).

Short links for April 29th, 2008

Some interesting things I found on April 29th, 2008:

# Slashbot: The Guitar Hero Robot – A robotic system capable of autonomously playing the video game Guitar Hero.

Slashbot – mounted guitar and the fingers (solenoid actuators).

How does it work? The brightness of a pixel from the PlayStation2′s video signal is determined by the signal’s voltage amplitude. Since the notes are the brightest images on the screen they can be detected by setting trigger points. Once a detection is made, a control signal is sent to the robot after a specific delay (determined by the tempo of the song).

# Exclusive: Watch ‘Wanderlust,’ Björk’s New 3-D Video – Instructions on how to make 3-D glasses included.

# NI Ends Legal Dispute Over Traktor Scratch; Digital Vinyl’s Twisty, Turny History – As of Friday, it seems that the ongoing saga of a dispute over digital vinyl, beginning with the 2006 “divorce” of digital DJ titans Stanton Electronics and Native Instruments, may be over. NI released a statement Friday saying they had not only settled a US civil action patent case over their use of digital vinyl in Traktor Scratch, but had agreed to license the technology from N2IT Holdings, the US patent owners for digital DJing.
