Audiofile Releases Triumph 2.5

A next-generation tool for audio editing, mastering, sound design, podcasting and post-production

Minneapolis, MN (January 21, 2015) – Audiofile, a leading music technology company, announces the release of Triumph 2.5 on the Mac App Store. Built on the success of the company’s Wave Editor, Triumph 2.5 represents the next generation in audio editing, mastering, sound design, podcasting and post-production with new features, powerful DSP and a refined workflow.

AF_Triumph_2_5

Triumph 2.5 is a significant step forward in Triumph’s evolution. Audiofile has improved workflow efficiency by redesigning the Render Assistant with the ability to render and export multiple formats simultaneously, allowing assets to be auditioned more easily by clicking “play” in an asset’s popover, and by adding video import functionality, which will appeal to sounds designers and those working in post-production.

Triumph 2.5 also represents a significant step forward for sample rate conversion and dither as it now includes algorithms by Goodhertz, creators of Triumph’s digital scrubbing feature and FHX™ headphone listening DSP. Goodhertz’ mastering-grade audio sample rate converter combines incredible sonic performance with unmatched speed and efficiency for a nearly ideal frequency response, preserving high frequency content and eliminating aliasing. Goodhertz dither is a custom-tailored noise shaping algorithm that, rather than relying on noisy peaks or drastic high frequency shaping, always remains smooth and natural sounding while preserving every possible detail of the audio.

“The Triumph workflow is revolutionary,” adds Ricardo Gutierrez, Grammy-winning mastering and mix engineer. “It’s a great Swiss army knife. The fact that it can play back different sample rates in a project is amazing. The shapes used for automation, and the way you can snap to grid the different shapes, is really cool. I’m fully in the box now with mastering and finally have the tools and plug-ins to work in the box. I haven’t touched my analogue gear since the summer. Clients want things so fast and Triumph lets you do that!”

Other additions and enhancements to Triumph include:

• Greatly improved performance and stability
• Optimized for OS X 10.10 Yosemite
• Enhanced editing of individual channels in the Waveform View
• Adds an option to import DDP sets from the File menu
• Improved SoundCloud integration
• Improved multichannel file support
• iZotope MBIT+ Dither™ and 64-bit SRC™ are now available by purchasing an additional license from the Audiofile online store or via in-app purchase in the Mac App Store version
• Various improvements to key commands
• Improved User Guide

“I really like this app a lot,” said Rich Breen, Grammy-winning recording, mix and mastering engineer. “Of course, most important are the sonics, and I’ve found it to be totally solid in this respect. For scripting, I can either duplicate and edit an existing script directly in Triumph, or copy it into AppleScript Editor and edit there for greater flexibility – I don’t know of any other audio apps that offer this kind of feature.”

Pricing and Availability
Triumph 2.5 is now available on the Audiofile website for $79.99. Triumph 2.3.2 is available on the Mac App Store for $79.99 with free update coming soon. For product and ordering information or to download a demo, visit http://www.audiofile-engineering.com/triumph/.

Audient Breaks New Ground At NAMM 2015

Anaheim, California – Seventeen years since its inception, British audio equipment manufacturer Audient brings exciting new products, a fresh, dynamic team, a progressive new owner and a new distribution partner to the United States.

Audient_Logo

No stranger to NAMM, Audient comes to this year’s show having picked up its third TEC-Award nomination, this time for the eight-channel mic pre, ASP880. Another recipient of much acclaim is the feature-packed USB AD/DA interface and monitoring system, iD22 which visitors to the show should be able to get a look at.

It all started with the large format ASP8024 analogue console designed by David Dearden, who himself lays claim to a sound electronics design experience second to none. He’s spent over 40 years working with consoles, headed up DDA, co-founded Audient, and also had the incredible experience of helping build the custom console used for John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’ album.

“Every Audient product with a mic pre – including the latest releases, ASP880 and iD22 – incorporates the original Dearden-designed console preamps,” explains Chief Technical Officer, Tom Waterman taking pride in driving Audient’s engineering in new directions, whilst staying true to the company’s heritage. “Indeed Audient is the only company whose renowned mic pre design features throughout the whole range. It is testament to the design of the flagship analogue console, ASP8024 that it is still manufactured today and that there are more than 1,000 in daily use worldwide.”

ASP8024 is a top choice for schools as well as studios across the United States. Renowned creative institute Full Sail University packs a staggering 12 desks into a single teaching space; NYU Steinhardt and University of Central Oklahoma both possess one and Women’s Audio Mission has just taken delivery of its first 48 channel Audient.

Industry heavyweight Simon Blackwood is at now at Audient’s helm and has a proven track record for pro audio business development – past successes including Focusrite, Novation and founding Spirit.
A year after taking the reins he is very pleased with the brand’s progress, stating: “There was significant growth in our business in 2014 and our focus for 2015 is the US market”. Most recently he has utilised his close connections with industry manufacturing to help source new technology and better component pricing, which has led to the significant reduction in the price of iD22.

Together with Tom’s vision for exciting new products, Simon promises to propel Audient forward into the new year. “We have plenty of scope for further development over the next 12 months, and great energy from our team based in southern England. Setting up new distribution agreements in the States and across the globe is just the start of it.”

To bring this new direction to the USA, Audient has signed on a new distribution partner in Momentum Audio Sales. Founded by audio industry veteran John Devins on his experience in leading sales efforts for Steinberg, Cerwin-Vega, Focusrite/Novation, AKG, and JBL, Momentum Audio Sales is the perfect fit for Audient to expand their offerings in the US market. Devins will tap established dealer and sales rep networks in the US and is looking forward to a year of growth in 2015.

New Black 7′s ‘Fine Wine’, Chandler Limited infused…

The New Black 7 - Fine Wine

Brentt James Arcement, Jason K. Herman, Tory Stoffregen (L,C,R)

Chandler Limited’s own Tory Stoffregen and his band The New Black 7, have matured into a worthy addition to any music-loving soul’s library with the release of the recent single ‘Fine Wine’ and video from their upcoming album, ‘God Willin’ And The Creek Don’t Rise’.

While the journey of every record has its own tale, this production is exceptionally noteworthy in its setting, cast, and a childhood friendship spanning decades.

The New Black 7 have made the in-house recording studio of the Shell Rock, Iowa based pro-audio manufacturer Chandler Limited their home, while enlisting Chandler’s founder Wade Goeke for co-production.

The ability for The New Black 7 to lay down tracks at Chandler Limited’s recording studio has benefits. The obvious one is having access to some of the greatest recording equipment on the planet, while another is offering themselves up as worthy guinea pigs to challenge the designs of Wade’s latest creations. A large chunk of Chandler Limited’s product line gets into the act, including super secret prototype hardware, and the highly anticipated soon to be shipping REDD.47 tube microphone pre-amplifier from Chandler Limited’s Abbey Road Studios line. (for details, see session notes at end of article)

The band’s job is clear, perform, and they do. For Wade’s part, he’s placing microphones, dialing in sounds, ever-tweaking his creations until satisfied. With this much recording gear at your fingertips, and the guy who designed it in the room ready to tune the device on the spot, you know the options are endless.

By now Tory and the band have Wade’s voice calling out ‘Do it again’ etched into their DNA. However, The New Black 7’s talent and musicality coupled with Wade’s electronic design prowess yield a wonderful result.

The whole track is well crafted and the energy is certainly captured to great effect. Tory’s rollicking baritone lead vocal pouring into a Chandler prototype microphone keeps your ears pinned back for the next turn in this infectious track. Guitarist Jason K. Herman’s meticulous performance effortlessly sparks crunchy harmonic embers from the tubes of a Chandler Limited GAV19T guitar amp, all plucked at just the right times. Then, there are those drums! The consummate professional Brentt James Arcement’s drumming perfectly drives ‘Fine Wine’ comfortably along, while New Black 7’s go-to studio bassist and newest member, Dan Dryden holds down the fort. This is what you want to hear in a track, distinct elements, each with its own character, however bonded by some unidentifiable force.

With pots turned sideways, switches worked, and meters long-since dimed, the many takes, and tracks in the bag, ‘Fine Wine’ was ready to be mixed and mastered.

Being so close to home in a variety of ways, this artistic endeavor left Tory, the band, and Wade with many emotions, and considerable contemplation of who would handle mixing duties. Enter Grammy and Emmy award-winning engineer Jamie Tate.

Nashville based Jamie Tate (Alan Jackson, Marty Stuart, Justin Moore, Sheryl Crow, Brooks & Dunn, Taylor Swift) was chosen to unify the catalog of bits melody, harmony, and groove that would become ‘Fine Wine’.

The New Black 7’s Tory Stoffregen had this to say about the selection of Jamie Tate for mixing duties, “We were big fans of his mixes, big and punchy but not typical “Nashville” gloss. A little bit country and a little bit rock and roll!”

With everything patched-in and so Chandler, it is only fitting to find Jamie Tate’s studio ‘The Rukkus Room’ has a stash of vintage Chandler Limited gear. Jamie a long-time Chandler Limited user commented, “I use my TG1 Limiter on every session, from the first Taylor Swift record to this new Billy Currington single; I have serial #12! I also have the Chandler Limited EMI TG Channel; again, it’s such an early version. The TG Channel along with my U-47, it’s my default vocal chain. If I record or mix it, these Chandler Limited EMI/Abbey Road Studios boxes will be on it.”

When you listen to ‘Fine Wine’ it instantly surrounds you, full of fidelity, dimension and the vocal perfectly placed. Of course the sonic characteristic of Chandler Limited gear is there; however, how Jamie has presented the energy of The New Black 7 to the listener takes it to a special place.

With Jamie’s brilliant mix completed, the track was set for finalizing. For mastering, the boys leaned on Chandler Limited’s longtime relationship with Abbey Road Studios; that was a no brainer.

Session notes (Chandler Limited Gear): REDD.47 Pre-amp (Vocals, Bass guitar), Prototype CL microphone and prototype channel (Vocals), TG2-500 Pre-amp with TG Channel MKII EQ (Kick drum, and Snare), Little Devil Pre-amp and Little Devil EQ (Toms, Rooms, Overheads), Zener Limiter (Room mics), TG2 Pre-amp/DI, prototype CL microphone, prototype channel, and GAV19T guitar amplifier (Electric Guitars), Prototype channel (Acoustic guitar, and Mandolin)

Chandler Limited announces REDD.47 Pre-Amp

Chandler Limited REDD.47 Pre Amp - EMI Abbey Road StudiosChandler Limited adds tube pre-amplifier to its Abbey Road Studios series

Shell Rock, IA – October 2014 … Chandler Limited, recognized globally for signal processing and related music and audio products that deliver the classic analog sounds recording and professional musicians seek, announces addition of the REDD.47 pre-amplifier to Chandler’s esteemed Abbey Road Studios product line.

The REDD.47 microphone pre-amplifier, considered a ‘holy grail’ to some, is most closely associated with the sound of The Beatles’ records recorded at Abbey Road Studios from 1964-1968. Today, 50 years later, Chandler Limited revives this legendary sound with its own incarnation of the famous REDD.47.

The origins of the REDD.47 began at Abbey Road Studios’ technical division, the ‘Record Engineering Development Department’,  in 1958. The REDD.47 line amplifier was designed as the replacement for Telefunken’s V72S. The latter was a specially modified version of the Telefunken V72 valve amplifier, used in the early EMI REDD mixing consoles at Abbey Road Studios.

The REDD.47 tube amplifier was introduced as the plug-in all-purpose line amplifier component for EMI’s next generation REDD.51 mixing console, first built in 1959. However, Abbey Road’s Studio Two, home to the majority of The Beatles’ recording sessions, only received its REDD.51 mixing console in 1964. The REDD.47 left its unmistakable sonic character on every Beatles record from 1964 to 1968.

Chandler Limited’s re-imagination of the REDD.47 realizes the punchy, aggressive sound of the original pre-amplifier, while adding new features required for the rigors of today’s recording studio environment. One of the features of Chandler Limited’s REDD.47 design is increased gain, allowing a range of tonal options from pristine clean sound to classic rich, saturated tone with up to 2% harmonic distortion before clipping. The Chandler Limited REDD.47 pre-amp easily reproduces the distortions heard on The Beatles’ ‘Revolution.’

The introduction of the REDD.47 tube pre-amplifier is a milestone for the Shell Rock, Iowa pro-audio manufacturer and Chandler’s heralded Abbey Road Studios product line. Chandler Limited founder and chief designer, Wade Goeke, had this to say,

“Obviously this is a big step for Chandler Limited. The REDD.47 is possibly the most famous mic pre of all time and we all wanted it to be special in sound, function, and appearance. From using the original documentation, to remolding the jumbo old style knobs, to reviving the Rumble Filter, every part of this design has been special . . . and if you’re wondering . . . yes, it distorts in that special way just like on the old songs!”

Equally excited for the new REDD.47 pre-amplifier is Abbey Road Studios’ Head of Audio Products, Mirek Stiles,

“Abbey Road Studios is proud to see the legendary REDD.47 microphone pre-amp brought back to life as a hardware unit. The distinctively warm and sometimes aggressive sound the REDD.47 is known for has made a huge impact on some of the most important historical recordings of all time. It’s very exciting to know the famous ‘edgy treble’ sound will now be available to engineers, producers and artists all over the world.”

Chandler Limited’s REDD.47 pre-amp has the ability to be used as a mic pre-amp, line amplifier, or serve as a D/I, and is sure to become a record production staple of recording studios worldwide.

To learn more about Chandler Limited’s REDD.47 pre-amp visit: http://chandlerlimited.com/redd-47-pre-amp

Chandler Limited expects to begin shipping the highly anticipated REDD.47 pre-amp during first quarter 2015.

Westlake Pro Posts Tony Shepperd Mixing Master Class Videos

First installments of video series now available on YouTube

Los Angeles, CA (October 7, 2014) – Westlake Pro, a leading retailer of professional audio, recording, live sound equipment, and technical services has posted the first two videos in a new Mixing Master Class series with veteran mixing engineer Tony Shepperd.

TonyShepperd

Shepperd, a prolific engineer who has recorded and mixed such music heavyweights as Take 6, Whitney Houston, Quincy Jones, Diana Ross, Madonna, Kenny Loggins, Boyz II Men and more, deconstructs his mix of Sheléa’s hit single I’ll Never Let You Go as he talks about his workflow and his vocal production technique, which have become his specialty over the past two decades.

“It was an honor for us to host Tony Shepperd,” said Peter Malick, Director of Online Content for Westlake Pro. “The depth of knowledge that he shares with our customers and viewers is a testament to his willingness to further the craft of recording, mixing, and producing.”
