Line 6 has announced its new Relay V75-SC, a 14-channel digital wireless handheld microphone/transmitter with super-cardioid dynamic capsule.

Line 6 Relay V75-SC
Designed for use with the XD-V75 digital wireless system, Relay V75-SC isolates vocals while rejecting stage noise, resulting in supreme vocal clarity and articulation.

V75-SC is the first Line 6 vocal wireless solution to be released under the Relay brand. XD-V75, XD-V55 and XD-V35 vocal wireless systems will also join G-series instrument wireless solutions as part of the industry-standard Relay family—giving musicians a single source for the best-sounding, most reliable wireless in the industry.

“Discerning vocalists require a microphone that delivers pristine sound quality, even on loud or crowded stages,” said Max Gutnik, Vice President of Products, Line 6. “Relay V75-SC features a super-cardioid polar pattern that delivers excellent on-axis response while preventing feedback and bleed-in from other instruments—giving vocalists the confidence they need to deliver their best performances.”

Featuring 24-bit audio quality, 10Hz to 20kHz frequency response and a wide dynamic range of up to 118dB (A weighted), the Relay V75-SC signal is so clear and strong that it sounds and performs like a wired microphone. Thanks to compander-free Line 6® digital wireless technology, Relay V75-SC allows vocalists to convey every nuance of their performances to the audience with crystal clarity.

Relay V75-SC also offers four exceptional microphone models—including three based on the world’s most celebrated super-cardioid live mics—allowing vocalists to choose the perfect sound to match their voice, performance style and venue.

Relay V75-SC is a durable, dependable microphone transmitter designed to provide reliable performance night after night. The rugged metal body is engineered to withstand the elements and minimize handling noise. A custom hard-shell touring case with soft inner padding protects Relay V75-SC while traveling.

The Relay V75-SC is now shipping.

Line6 has also announced updates to its XD-V55HS, Relay G90, Relay G50 and Relay G30 digital wireless systems.

The XD-V55HS digital wireless system is now available with a tan headset option (in addition to black), allowing performers and spoken word presenters to choose the finish that’s right for them.

The free v2.0 firmware update for Relay G90, Relay G50 and Relay G30 guitar wireless systems allows guitarists to switch between RF1 and RF2 operating modes, enabling compatibility with other RF2 devices such as the Line 6 XD-V series. Additionally, RF2 operating mode enables 14-channel operation for the Relay G90 system, and reduces impact on other devices operating in the 2.4GHz space.

“The H9 is designed to pack all that you need by way of delay, modulation, pitch, and reverb effects, along with a fast, accurate tuner, in a small footprint. We’ve also created a feature-rich remote control app, H9 Control, for controlling the H9 from an iPhone or iPad, wirelessly via Bluetooth or tethered to your PC or Mac via USB,” said Ray Maxwell, Eventide’s VP of Sales and Marketing. “As always, our prime directive is to deliver the Eventide sound that our users have come to rely on. Never before has that sound been packed into such a small package,” he added.

The H9 comes bundled with a set of the most popular algorithms taken from Eventide’s stompboxes: Liquid Chorus, Organic Chorus, Shimmer Chorus, Classic Chorus, Phase XO Chorus, Bias Tremolo, and Opto Tremolo from ModFactor; H910, H949, and Crystals™ from PitchFactor; Tape Echo and Vintage Delay from TimeFactor; and Hall and Shimmer from Space. The standard bundle also includes the first in a series of new H9-specific algorithms, UltraTap Delay™.

IK Multimedia announces iRig BlueBoard

IK Multimedia has announced the iRig BlueBoard, the first Bluetooth MIDI pedalboard for iPhone, iPad and Mac.

Winner of the iLounge “Best in Show” at the recent CES, iRig® BlueBoard, a groundbreaking new Bluetooth MIDI pedalboard for iPhone, iPad and Mac, which gives you: the guitarists, bassists and keyboard players hands-free control of mobile and Mac music apps.

IK Multimedia iRig BlueBoard

iRig BlueBoard is a great addition to any mobile or studio rig for live performance and recording. You can use it to extend control of your preferred music apps by switching presets, changing sounds or modifying effects parameters – all hands-free. You don’t have to put down your instrument, and can remain focused on your performance.

Any music app or software that is MIDI compatible (the standard communication protocol for musical instruments) – such as IK’s AmpliTube, VocaLive, SampleTank, iGrand – or any other Core-MIDI-compatible app like Apple GarageBand, can be operated wirelessly with iRig BlueBoard.

This ultra-portable unit uses Bluetooth 4.0 technology to transmit the actions of its four onboard, backlit footswitches and its two optional external pedals to the mobile device or Mac. Then using the included iRig BlueBoard app and software, the Bluetooth signals are converted into MIDI messages and routed internally to the music app that’s running on the device.

Because it’s wireless, iRig BlueBoard lets you setup onstage without being tethered to your mobile device. The unit’s range is 10 meters (over 32 feet), giving musicians a great deal of mobility to roam the stage that would be impossible with a wired unit. Because the footswitches are backlit, they’re easy to see in all lighting conditions, even on a dark stage. Additionally, the fact that iRig uses wireless Bluetooth leaves all the wired ports of the device free, so they can be used simultaneously by interfaces or controllers that feature the 30-pin or Lightning connector, like IK’s iRig HD, iRig MIDI or iRig Keyboard, and adapters or microphones that use the device mini-jack such as iRig or iRig MIC.

iRig BlueBoard features

  • Bluetooth MIDI pedalboard (10m/32.8′ range).
  • 4 backlit switches for sending program, bank and other MIDI messages.
  • 2 1/4″ inputs for optional expression pedals or switches that can used for sending continuous controller or on/off messages.
  • BlueBoard iOS app runs in background on mobile device or Mac, and translates Bluetooth messages to MIDI.
  • Runs on standard AAA batteries.
  • Small enough to fit in a laptop bag.

iRig BlueBoard is priced at $99.99 USD / 79.99 EUR MSRP (excl. tax), and will be available in the second quarter of 2013.

PreSonus introduces StudioLive AI-series loudspeakers

Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on Jan 25, 2013 - comment 0 comments

PreSonus has announced its new StudioLive AI-series Active Integration Loudspeakers, the first active loudspeakers that deliver studio-monitor accuracy onstage and are equipped with complete wireless or wired remote control and monitoring using an iPad or laptop.

PreSonus StudioLive AI-series

All StudioLive AI-series speakers incorporate Fulcrum Acoustic’s TQ™ Temporal Equalization algorithms. TQ employs multiple, fully addressable Finite Impulse Response (FIR) filters to eliminate horn reflections and to correct linear time and amplitude anomalies. Collaborating with Fulcrum Acoustic co-founder, Dave Gunness, PreSonus software designers incorporated custom TQ algorithms with dynamics processing, FFT tools, and performance monitoring into the onboard DSP – quite possibly the most powerful suite of tools ever available in a loudspeaker system. The result is a PA system with remarkably clear, coherent, studio-quality sound: Studio…Live!

Another key component of the StudioLive AI’s distinctive design is its use of Active Integration technology. Active Integration combines wireless and wired networking and communications with the aforementioned powerful DSP to create a unified working environment.

All StudioLive AI-series loudspeakers include a USB Wi-Fi module to connect to SL Room Control software over a wireless network. SL Room Control is an impressive system-configuration application for Mac OS X®, Windows®, and iPad that provides both individual and grouped speaker control and includes a 31-band graphic EQ and an 8-band parametric EQ, muting, soloing, and level control, in addition to performance monitoring (over temperature, click detection, and excursions). A network-setup wizard is also included to quickly connect each speaker to your wireless network. An included Ethernet port on each speaker can be replaced with an AVB option card, which is expected to available in late 2013.

Full-range AI-series loudspeakers are available in three configurations. Each compact, powered, 3-way loudspeaker relies on a custom-designed, 8-inch coaxial speaker with a 1.75-inch titanium compression driver to reproduce the mid and high frequencies. The triamplified, Class D power amplifiers in each model (quad-amped in the 328AI) deliver an astonishing combined 2,000 watts of power.

The StudioLive 312AI comes equipped with a 12-inch ferrite speaker to handle low-frequency reproduction. This model is a great choice for venue owners who need high-quality speakers that offer enough coverage for normal bar needs (such as game broadcast and canned music) and are powerful enough for a band or a karaoke night.

Featuring dual 8-inch ferrite speakers for low-frequency reproduction, the StudioLive 328AI delivers full-range, high-powered performance, yet is streamlined and compact- just right for the club that needs a compact PA with the frequency range, sound, and power of a large system.

For the large venue that needs a bigger low-end, the StudioLive 315AI provides 3-way coverage, with a 15-inch speaker for the lows.

Each full-range system has a combo XLR/TRS line input and an XLR microphone input with an XMAX™ Class A mic preamplifier and 12V phantom power, as well as an XLR audio throughput. The full-range speaker systems are pole-mountable and have two ergonomic side handles, interlocking stacking, and M10 fly points. All enclosures are of lightweight plywood construction. Three operation modes allow the user to choose DSP presets for their application, such as MP3 playback, live performance, or stage monitoring. Users can also create a custom preset using SL Room Control and store it onboard for use later.

In addition to the full-range, 3-way systems, PreSonus is offering the StudioLive 18sAI, a powered, 18-inch, ferrite subwoofer designed to complement the full-range StudioLive AI speakers while still being flexible enough to work with other powered loudspeakers. A 1,000W amplifier powers the subwoofer. The StudioLive 18sAI offers stereo line inputs (XLR/¼-inch combo) and full-range stereo line outputs (XLR) that can be summed to mono. An alignment delay can be set to 0, 2, or 4 feet, allowing the subwoofer to combine perfectly with a full-range system.

Each full-range, three-way speaker system includes a switch that engages an External Subwoofer mode. In this mode, a custom low-cut filter ensures that the bottom frequency range of the woofer and the top range of the StudioLive 18sAI subwoofer overlap, and an alignment delay and phase correction are enabled, creating a true time- and phase-aligned, four-way system.

The StudioLive 18sAI subwoofer offers an additional alignment delay that can be set to 0, 2, or 4 feet, allowing the full-range system to be placed on the subwoofer pole (the 0 setting) or with the subwoofer in front, or with the full-range system onstage and the subwoofer on the floor.

Custom accessories for the AI-series speakers include a mountable Sub Dolly to make hauling the 18sAI subwoofer easy and a pull-tested Sub Pole to mount a full-range system atop the 18sAI. An M10 Kit, which contains four M10 eyebolts, lets you fly any full-range model in a permanent installation. Protective covers for the 312AI, 328AI, 315AI, and 18sAI are also available.

All models are expected to ship late in the first quarter of 2013.

Alesis introduces MultiMix 10 Wireless & MultiMix 16 USB FX mixers

Related: , , , , , , , , , Posted in news on Jan 25, 2013 - comment 0 comments

Alesis has announced MultiMix 10 Wireless and MultiMix 16 USB FX, two new models to its MultiMix Series of live and recording mixers.

As the name suggests, the MultiMix 10 Wireless now features Bluetooth capabilities, and the MultiMix 16 USB FX now offers onboard effects.

“These mixers bring exciting new features to our popular MultiMix lineup,” says Alesis Project Manager Walter Skorupski. “We are very pleased to add these models to the mix.”

Alesis MultiMix 10 Wireless

The MultiMix 10 Wireless is a 10-channel, rack-mount mixer that is well suited to smaller clubs and venues, houses of worship, and traveling systems. Channels 1-4 are mono and offer both XLR mic inputs (selectable phantom power is provided) and balanced 1/4″ inputs. TRS inserts are also provided. Channels 5/6 and 7/8 are stereo-paired channels, offering left and right balanced 1/4″ ins. Channels 7/8 also offer a pair of stereo RCA inputs. Configured in stereo, Channels 9/10 are dedicated to receiving a stereo audio signal from any Bluetooth-enabled device. Simple, single-button front-panel pairing makes it easy. Each channel offers a peak LED, trim knob, 2-band EQ, pre and post sends, a pan knob, and a smooth-travelling 60mm fader.

On the back panel, the MultiMix 10 Wireless features 1/4″ aux sends and 1/4″ balanced stereo returns. The main stereo outs are 1/4″ balanced, and an additional set of 1/4″ stereo monitor outs are provided. Up on the front panel, the Master section includes additional easy-access XLR+1/4″ combo inputs for Channels 1 and 2 that override the respective rear inputs, making it easy to temporarily connect a microphone or other sound source without removing the mixer from the rack. An 1/8″ jack allows a non-Bluetooth source to access Channel 9. Located alongside the master fader, the twin 10-stage LED meters feature red peak indicators. A dedicated headphone jack is provided; the level is controlled by the monitor/phones knob. A very handy 1/8″ output provides the main mix directly from the front panel.

Alesis MultiMix 16 USD FX

The new MultiMix 16 USB FX performs double-duty as a versatile live and recording mixer and as a USB audio (16-bit, 44.1 or 48 kHz) interface for computer-based recording, even doing both at the same time. This class-compliant connection provides true plug-and-play connectivity with the computer and nearly any recording software. The versatility of the MultiMix 16 USB FX is ideal for the performing musician with a home or project studio.

The onboard processor (FX) offers 8 effect types, with individual sends on each channel. Eight mono channels include both 1/4″ and XLR inputs, with selectable phantom power. Four stereo-paired channels feature 1/4″ inputs. A direct guitar-level input is available on Channel 8. Each channel strip includes a multi-band EQ, sends, pan, and level control. Multi-stage LED metering, dedicated main and headphone outputs with individual levels, and two-track RCA tape ins and outs complete this multi-use mixer. Cubase LE6 is included.

Alesis will be exhibiting at Booth 6700 at the 2013 Winter NAMM show, January 24-27 in Anaheim, California.
