SkoogMusic launches Indiegogo crowdfunding for Skoog 2.0 musical instrument

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

Scottish based SkoogMusic last week launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign, aiming to enable production of its ground-breaking musical instrument ‘Skoog 2.0’.

This uniquely expressive, uber-cool cube is designed for everyone to play, but unlike a traditional instrument, you don’t need to read music or memorise your scales to give this a go. All you need is a love of music.

(If you are into your music tech, Skoog 2.0 will ship with a full API, bonus mogo synth and it will be ready to rock with Ableton)

Doctors of musical-tech innovation, David Skulina and Ben Schogler, and their small team of creative-developers, have spent the last 4 years proving their ‘music for everyone’ concept (in the shape of the “Skoog”) in the world of education. Extensively tested, honed and developed internationally, Skoog 2.0 is the evolved result: a nifty, wireless, thing of beauty that we can all play.

Patent-pending technology and a range of music-making apps & software, make it an ‘out-of-the box’ joy to play, allowing for a huge range of abilities, creative talents, and musical preferences. It’s also wireless, iOS compatible and highly responsive, so ideal for anyone interested in being creative with sound. Plus, it’s an awesome musical accessory for the iPad.

“The genius of the Skoog is that it provides a powerful tool for music creation, whilst also being intuitive and easy to use. It’s genuinely expressive, providing you with the same control over musical sounds as a flautist has of a flute or a violinist has over violin.”

– British composer Nigel Osborne, MBE

The campaign ends December 10th, 2014.

Mackie intros DL32R digital mixer with wireless control

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.
