— In the fast-paced world of broadcast commercials, Beacon Street Studios finds that time is its most precious commodity, and GC Pro’s full-service capability means Beacon Street can focus on the music while GC Pro finds the right gear —

beacon street

Beacon Street Studios in Venice, California, is a unique kind of place, where major international advertising firms, including BBDO, Ogilvy & Mather and DDB, have their clients’ music created for broadcast spots, such as the five commercials for Career Builder, Hyundai, Bridgestone and Gatorade that they scored for the Super Bowl this year. At the same time, music artists including Hootie & the Blowfish and April Hendrix, and noted music producers like Don Was and Ed Cherney, have also found Beacon Street Studios – a space once occupied by the legendary Joni Mitchell – to be a creative haven for their art. Being such an in-demand facility keeps their calendar busy, and as they were looking to update several studio components, the biggest issue was time. Fortunately, Guitar Center Professional (GC Pro), the outside sales division of Guitar Center that focuses on the needs of professional users, helped the studio find the right gear effectively and efficiently, determining what new equipment was needed to help the facility keep up with demand. With GC Pro on its side, Beacon Street was able to keep the focus where it needs to be – on the music. more

Waves Releases Vocal Rider, a Revolutionary Plug-in for Mixing

— Waves Vocal Rider intelligently raises or lowers vocal volume without coloring or compression —

vocal rider

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL — Waves Audio is now shipping Vocal Rider, the first of Waves’ pioneering series of innovative new Mixing tools. Vocal Rider is indispensable for mixers and recording engineers, automatically riding the levels of vocal tracks. Instead of manually riding a console fader, or tediously drawing in every level change on a DAW track, Vocal Rider does it automatically, making it a true timesaver.

First, the user sets the target range of the vocal level in relation to the rest of the mix. Vocal Rider then compensates for all deviations from the target, intelligently raising or lowering the vocal volume, instantly. Unlike compression, Vocal Rider adds absolutely no additional coloring to the track

The new Vocal Rider Live component includes an exclusive Spill control to differentiate the vocal from background instrumentation and noise, for better tracking and performance. more

— All-in-one pocket-size studio offers infinite overdubbing —

SOS1 SOS2

MELVILLE, NY — Korg introduces the SOUND on SOUND (SOS) Unlimited Track Recorder, which enables musicians to capture and develop musical ideas as they happen, wherever they are. Battery-powered and completely self-contained, the SOS contains a high-quality stereo microphone and a built-in speaker for all-in-one recording and monitoring.

Unlike other portable recorders (even multi-track), the SOS allows for an infinite number of overdubs or alternate takes to be recorded. Each track, take or overdub is recorded as an individual CD-quality 16-bit / 44.1 kHz WAV file, and saved directly to a microSD or microSDHC card. Accurate BWF (Broadcast Wave Format) timing information is embedded in each track, meaning all tracks will automatically line up when imported into a computer-based DAW system for further editing, mixdown and final playback. The SOS can record up to 200 songs in the traditional linear manner, or be set to loop a specific section. Memory consumption is roughly 100 recorded minutes per GB (gigabyte). more
