Orion32: Unmatched I/O Flexibility, Audio Quality and Clocking Accuracy:

Antelope Audio’s Orion32 is the world’s first 32-channel AD/DA converter, supporting both MADI and USB interfaces, clocked by Antelope’s renowned 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) technology. The device features 192 kHz I/O streaming of 32-channel digital audio through its custom-built USB chip, which provides simple connectivity to any USB-enabled DAW or computer. The converter also provides 32 channels of 96 kHz audio through its fiber optic MADI I/O connections, which can be used to connect with any suitably equipped MADI compatible device.

In addition to being an extremely high quality audio converter, Orion32 is also an audio master clock. The device employs Antelope’s proprietary 4th generation of AFC and oven controlled oscillator, technologies that made Antelope Audio clocks an industry leader for accuracy and reliability in recording, mastering and post-production facilities around the world. The 4 word clock outs, together with the 10 MHz input, make Orion 32 the ideal centerpiece to any project studio, high-end studio or live performance environment.

Sennheiser to Demonstrate its Unique Laser Drum Microphone Concept at 2014 NAMM Show

Daily Demonstrations Will Feature Concept Microphone Developed by Sennheiser Technology and Innovation Lab, San Francisco

Anaheim, CA – January 21, 2014: Audio specialist Sennheiser (Hall A, Booth 6577) announced that it will exhibit an advanced concept microphone at the 2014 NAMM Show, which is designed to improve drum sound pick-up. The concept, developed by Sennheiser’s Technology and Innovation Lab in San Francisco, is unique and based on a recording technology supported by lasers.

In the past, Sennheiser has used exhibitions such as the NAMM Show as sounding boards to gain insight and feedback on its latest developments in its Pursuit of Perfect Sound. The new laser drum concept will be demonstrated on the Sennheiser stage to visualize the idea.

Typically, many microphones are used to capture the sound of a drum kit. However, each single microphone usually captures many other sounds in addition to its intended source. This is why many engineers have used gating techniques to keep the sonic image focused and avoid what is commonly referred to as comb filtering: a series of delayed signals that create sonic interference.

Rather than relying soley on dynamics processing, Sennheiser’s laser drum microphone concept uses laser vibrometers to measure the vibration of the drum head. Instead of being triggered by acoustic waves, the gates for each drum are triggered using the laser beam which picks up the visual vibration of the drum head. This equates to less bleed across the pieces of the entire kit, and a more focused overall drum sound.

To experience Sennheiser’s unique laser drum microphone concept in person, please visit the Sennheiser booth between Thursday, January 23rd and Saturday, January 26th at 11:15 a.m., 1:50 p.m. or 4:50 p.m.
