Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on Oct 16, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Mackie has introduced the DL32R, a powerful new 32-channel digital mixing system completely controlled wirelessly from Mackie’s intuitive Master Fader iPad app.

Mackie DL32R
The DL32R features complete wireless control over everything, including fully-loaded DSP and multi-track recording/playback.

“Early on, Mackie believed that we can bring the user incredible benefits if we just let go of old conventions,” commented Ben Olswang, Mackie Senior Product Manager. “By ensuring that each and every feature can be controlled wirelessly without compromise, we are delivering benefits to users that were simply not possible before now.”

The Mackie DL32R features a mix of flexible, professional I/O in an ultra-compact 3U rackmount design. Each of the 32 inputs (24 XLR, 8 XLR/TRS combo) feature Mackie’s all-new Onyx+™ recallable mic preamps, with remote control over preamp gain and phantom power. The new Onyx+ preamps outperform the industry-proven Onyx design, which has garnered rave reviews for its boutique-quality sound and performance.

The DL32R 32-channel wireless digital mixer with iPad control will be available worldwide in Q4, 2014, priced at a MSRP of $2499.99 USD.

XTZ launches Kickstarter campgain for wireless Headphone Divine

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Oct 13, 2014 - comment 0 comments

XTZ has launched a Kickstarter campaign for the brand new wireless Headphone Divine, the world’s first high-end DSP wireless headphone with Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC pairing.

Let’s face it: headphones have been on the market for more than 50 years now. Year after year, new products come up – always offering more additional features and new designs. However, a closer look at the technological side of the product reveals that the changes often merely concern the design. When it comes to technology, not much has happened throughout the years. That’s due to the fact that there is a limit of what you can accomplish inside the size of a headphone. Until now…

With our new Headphone Divine, we take a huge step forward by combining the long experience of mechanical knowledge with the latest sound engineering technologies:

  • DSP sound optimization, including an algorithm for both frequency and impulse response.
  • Bluetooth 4.0 technology with aptX® Codec – no cables, no chaos (however, we also include a by-pass cable, so that you can connect the headphone to any 3,5mm jack).
  • NFC that pair your headphones without hassle
  • New: Works on PC and Mac via Bluetooth!

The Kickstarter project has already reached its initial target of $25,000 USD. Various stretch goals may still be reached before the project is funded on November 3rd, 2014.

MBLOK memory device launches on Kickstarter

Related: , , , , , , , , Posted in news on May 21, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Kwelea has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund its MBLOK memory storage device.

MBLOK
MBLOK is a secure personal mobile storage with Bluetooth and USB interfaces that is designed to have long battery life.

By pairing the MBLOK with all of your devices through Bluetooth, you can use it just like local memory. However, instead of transferring files between devices, they are all stored in one location.

Stream movies, music and access files on the go with up to 300 hours of battery life without need for internet access. Plug in to PC and upload data similarly to a flash drive while charging the MBLOK simultaneously.

In addition, it is so small that it can fit in your pocket yet has up to 256 GB of storage space.

This project is looking to raise $120,000 CAD by June 16th, 2014.

IK Multimedia releases iRing

Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on May 09, 2014 - comment 0 comments

IK Multimedia has announced the release of the iRing motion-tracking controller for iDevices.

IK Multimedia iRing
Originally presented at CES 2014, iRing is a wearable and affordable controller for iOS music apps and more. It allows touch-less parameter control via state-of-the-art motion-tracking technology.

iRing utilizes a wearable ring with identifiable markers, the mobile device’s front-facing camera, and advanced computer vision with highly-optimized recognition algorithms to determine the precise positioning of the ring markers. The device camera picks up the positioning of the ring patterns and the apps convert that information into music commands for dedicated app or MIDI information, which any compatible music app can read. This means that a user can operate up to six controllable music parameters in their preferred music apps with one or two hands gestures.

Also included are two free apps for music applications, which are intended for everyone from music lovers to DJs to seasoned musicians: iRing Music Maker and iRing FX/Controller.

iRing Music Maker is a free app designed to give music lovers and DJs a fun new way to create
 music and grooves using hand gestures, no matter what their skill level. iRing Music Maker
 utilizes music “loops” that always sound good together and can be remixed in virtually limitless
 combinations by simply waving the hands with the iRing controllers in front of the device’s 
camera. To learn more about iRing Music Maker, watch this video playlist.

iRing FX/Controller is the app for musicians and DJs that is both a real-time audio 
effects processor and a MIDI controller with fully assignable parameters. It can be used as a
 touch-less outboard audio effects processor, or can be fully configured to send multiple 
simultaneous MIDI parameters such as control changes, notes, or any other MIDI messages.

 To learn more about iRing Music Maker, watch this video playlist.

There is an SDK and a free licensing program available upon request for developers who want to integrate motion control into their apps.

The iRing is available for purchase in three colors (white, green and grey) for $24.99 USD / 19.99 EUR (ex. taxes). iRing FX/Controller and iRing Music Maker apps will be available as free downloads from the App Store.
