JESSUP, MARYLAND – DECEMBER 2009: API is pleased to invite all NAMM attendees to stop by Booth #6411 and enter a drawing to win a free JDK Audio R22 Compressor. Winners will be chosen by random drawing at the end of the day on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. A total of three lucky winners will each receive a JDK Audio R22 Compressor. Winners need not be present to win. JDK Audio is an entirely new brand developed, engineered and made in America by API (Automated Processes, Inc.) that captures the essence of vintage electronic design.

The new R22 is a two-channel rack-mount compressor with linkable stereo operation that uses true RMS power summing, API’s patented Thrust circuit for chest-hitting low-end, and easy to use, refreshingly musical control of all parameters. Visitors to the booth will have the opportunity to listen to multitrack material through the new R22 and other JDK gear at the JDK listening station. The R22 Compressor is the fourth product in the JDK line of robust analog signal processing equipment. Previously introduced products include the R20 two-channel mic pre, the R24 two-channel four-band EQ, and the V14 four-band VPR 500 format equalizer. more…

Tonelux Tilts NAMM

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – DECEMBER 2009: Tonelux rack-mounted gear, which is exclusively distributed worldwide by TransAudio Group, will introduce its new TILT eight-channel tone control at the NAMM Show in Anaheim, California in January 2010. The innovative TILT control, designed by Tonelux founder Paul Wolff, rebalances a channel’s high- and low-frequency content via a single knob, and was first featured on the company’s MP1a discrete mic preamp module.

Centered on approximately 700 Hz, the TILT control knob boosts high frequencies from 0 dB to 6 dB while simultaneously cutting low frequencies by the same amount when turned fully to the right. When turned to the left, low frequencies are boosted by up to 6 dB while high frequencies are similarly cut. This allows a user to conveniently alter the EQ of a track to better fit into the mix using a single rotary control. more…

New at NAMM! Transaudio Group Introduces the True Sysytems PT2-500 Modular Mic Pre

pt2_500.JPG

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – DECEMBER 2009: With the introduction of the PT2-500 mic pre and DI, TRUE Systems continues its contortionist legacy of packing immense-sounding microphone preamplification into infinitesimal spaces. Descendant of the TRUE Systems Precision 8, which squeezes eight audiophile-grade preamps into a single rack space, the diminutive PT2-500 conforms to the modular 500 Series format. Like all the other preamps in the TRUE Systems family, the PT2-500 delivers stunning detail, rich analog depth, and a robust, reliable design. But the PT2-500 is 500 module sized, for audio professionals who want everything in a rack ready to use, over and over again without buying additional power supplies and multiple racks.

The PT2-500 features up to 70 dB of high-headroom, low-noise microphone gain. An exceptionally high-quality direct input (DI) calms edgy piezos and provides a THRU jack for amping or effects. Switchable phantom power, 80 Hz high pass filter, and polarity reverse give the unit appropriate flexibility, even in its tiny, 500 Series space. Like all TRUE Systems preamps, the PT2-500 boasts a frequency response that reads like a misprint, 1.5 Hz to 600 kHz (-3 dB), ensuring that the audible and usable ultrasonic ranges are well within its linear response. more…

The New England School of Communication Takes 5.1 Monitoring to the Next Level with Genelc

NESCom

— Genelec monitoring is an established tradition at NESCom, where all seven control rooms in its Audio Engineering degree program feature Genelec Active Monitors —

NATICK, MA, December 15, 2009 — The New England School of Communication (NESCom) opened in 1981 with a mission to train students for careers in the broadcasting and related fields. Though it may be approaching its 30th anniversary, NESCom has kept its teaching technology at the cutting edge all of that time.

More HD Surround Sound from Sky with Soundfield’s UPM-1

keith_lane.JPGLAS VEGAS, NEVADA: European satellite broadcaster BSkyB, better known as Sky, has purchased eight of SoundField’s stereo-to-5.1 upmix processors for live use in their studios and outside broadcast facilities. The SoundField UPM-1 is a 1U, 19-inch rack processor which can create a convincing, phase-coherent 5.1 surround panorama from stereo audio in real-time, without adding any reverb or unwanted additional phase shifts. It does this by adaptively analyzing the two-channel stereo material, separating the content into its ambient and direct components, and placing any material from the center of the original stereo mix, such as commentary or dialogue, into the center channel of the resulting 5.1 panorama. For HD broadcasters, the UPM-1 ensures that most audio can be broadcast in fold-down friendly surround sound, without obvious moments when the broadcast soundscape narrows to stereo during the transmission of older, stereo-only material.

“The UPM-1 is already proving its worth here at Sky,” comments Keith Lane, Operations Manager at BSkyB. more…
