Mackie ProDX Wireless Digital Mixers

Posted by Mikers On January - 28 - 2016 ADD COMMENTS

As  many of you know it’s NAMM season so there is plenty of new audio related products being showcased and announced at the moment. One that caught my eye was these new wireless mixers from Mackie….

Mackie’s press release follows:

26501_713ProDX Series mixers couple the power of digital mixing and an ultra-compact form factor perfect for solo performers, small bands, venues and commercial applications that require lower channel counts. Both mixers are equipped with Mackie’s Wide-Z™ mic preamps. These combo inputs allow connection of mic, line and instruments and require no gain adjustment for easy setup. And with their single knob hardware design, any user can make quick and easy level adjustments. Using the companion MixerConnect™ control app, users unlock powerful processing and total wireless control plus the ability to wirelessly play back music or backing tracks from any Bluetooth® capable device.

“Performers, small venues and commercial applications often have to settle for limited capability when choosing a compact mixer,” commented Ben Olswang, Mackie Senior Product Manager. “With ProDX, we’ve delivered a powerful digital mixer with loads of processing, wireless control and Bluetooth streaming. But we’ve also created a mixer that incredibly convenient and easy to use from the intuitive from panel interface. It’s the perfect combination.”

ProDX mixers have built-in hardware that allows easy control over any channel and output via a single knob. This is perfect for applications such as restaurants, commercial applications, rehearsal studios that have many users that only need quick level adjustment with virtually no learning curve and often in dimly lit or tight spaces.

In addition to the quick front panel hardware, ProDX mixers provide complete wireless control over everything from EQ and FX to voicing and mix presets using the MixerConnect app available for iOS and Android™ devices. This allows the mixer to be stored safely and out of sight without losing any control. Performers can attach their phone to their mic stand for fast changes to their mix without interrupting the performance to run to the mixer. Both models feature an integrated control bridge, offering a convenient place to set a phone or tablet at just the right angle for keeping an eye on the mix.

ProDX mixers provide the essential tools users need to dial in a great mix. Easy-to-use 3-band EQ w/ sweepable mid, low cut and no-hassle compression per channel delivers pro sound with zero fuss. The built-in ReadyFX™ effects engine offers a choice of 16 great-sounding effects, so users can pick the perfect delay for their guitar or apply reverb to add life to any vocal application.  A flexible graphic EQ on all outputs allows fine tuning of the overall mix. Users can save their mix and and instantly recall at the next show for quick setup.

In addition to the convenient hardware controls, powerful processing and wireless control, ProDX mixers are equipped with the essential I/O that typical small mixer applications require. The ProDX4 features two Wide-Z preamps, plus TRS main outs and an aux send for sending audio to a monitor or separate zone. The ProDX8 extends the input count to 6 mic preamps and the addition of a second aux send. Both mixers also come with a 1/8″ stereo aux input for connecting a media player and a headphone output for monitoring or silent practice.

“We are excited to bring this incredibly versatile, compact mixing solution to users,” Olswang commented.“ProDX was designed to deliver a powerful digital mixer with the ease of use of an analog mixer, all at an incredible price, perfect for solo performers, small bands and commercial applications.”

Posted by Mikers On October - 27 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

iRigPRODUOIK Multimedia, the leader in mobile music creation technology, is pleased to announce iRig® Pro DUO, the first truly mobile high-definition dual-channel mobile audio and MIDI interface for iPhone/iPad, Mac/PC and Android devices. The smallest fully-featured dual-channel interface, iRig Pro DUO finally frees musicians to create inspired music on the go with studio-quality audio and a whole suite of features found in interfaces costing three times the price. Designed and made in Italy, it comes fully loaded with everything musicians and producers need to record on the move.
iRig Pro DUO features two XLR/TRS combo audio input jacks with gain controls and phantom power, ultra-low noise/high-headroom preamps, high-end 24-bit AD/DA converters, MIDI IN/OUT jacks for connecting controllers and other MIDI devices, a stereo pair of TRS balanced output jacks and a headphone out with level control. To top it all off, it’s also truly self-powered via 2 AA batteries and comes with an array of additional powering options. No other studio-quality audio interface offers this level of portability at such an affordable price. And, most remarkably, it manages to fit all of these features (and more) into an extremely compact enclosure that fits easily into the palm of a hand. With iRig Pro DUO, true mobility for portable simultaneous 2-channel recording and processing has finally arrived for everyone.

True mobility
What makes iRig Pro DUO stand out in the crowded interface market is its remarkable level of portability and professional audio quality. Designed to fit recording studio specifications into a travel-ready enclosure, it is the smallest fully-featured dual-channel interface available. Its compact size and multitude of powering options make it ideally suited for use while on the move – for true “off the grid” performance, iRig Pro DUO can be powered by 2 AA batteries (included). Plus, iRig Pro DUO can be powered via USB for Mac/PC or via an optional wall power adapter. This means that it’s ideal for use everywhere: on the road, at a gig, in the studio and anywhere in between. It’s a perfectly portable self-contained mobile studio solution for the musician or producer who wants the utmost in recording quality and versatility.

iRig Pro DUO is the most compact dual-channel interface available. Measuring just 130 x 75 x 38 mm, it fits easily into a gig bag, laptop bag, pocket or the palm of a hand.

True pro quality
iRig Pro DUO’s high-grade analogue circuitry and no compromise power supply design provide studio-quality sound on the go. Its dual XLR/TRS audio input jacks can be used to plug in guitars, basses, keyboards, line-level instruments and microphones to capture pristine and transparent 24-bit audio on the go. Players can record two channels of audio simultaneously using two instruments, two studio microphones or any combination of instruments they desire. It’s perfect for singer/songwriters, guitar and bass jammers, duet singers and more – the possibilities are infinite. MIDI controllers and instruments can be connected with ease thanks to iRig Pro DUO’s MIDI IN/OUT jacks. All the required cables for connecting MIDI hardware are included (TRS to MIDI-DIN).

With its dual inputs, musicians can make multi-track recordings on the fly. iRig Pro DUO can accommodate high-end phantom powered condenser microphones – 48V phantom power is available with the flip of a switch. Sound can be conveniently monitored with zero latency via either its 2 balanced TRS outputs or its headphone out jack with onboard level control.

Superior output
iRig Pro DUO’s high-quality balanced outputs can easily drive any kind of input. They deliver a stunningly clear audio signal thanks to its exceptional output drivers. The totally floating design of iRig Pro DUO’s balanced outputs protect it from potential ground loop issues and buzz when performing onstage with iOS devices or laptops. This superior design makes it the ideal audio interface for live performing musicians that want to connect their gear directly to the stage audio system without having to use any special cables or problematic DI Boxes.

True studio sound
When it comes to recording interfaces, they’re really only as good as they sound – and iRig Pro DUO sounds absolutely fantastic. This is due to world class AD/DA conversion, no compromise analogue stages, superior power supply, ultra-low noise and high-headroom preamps and professional balanced audio outputs. Simply put, iRig Pro DUO lets musicians and producers make great sounding recordings with all the musical subtlety and nuance of a pro studio interface, but in an extremely mobile form-factor.

Shure Announces MOTIV™ range

Posted by Mikers On January - 11 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

content_MOTIV_Family_alt2Shure is introducing the MOTIV™ range of digital products, a new plug-and-play microphone line aimed at individuals looking to capture high-quality, 24-bit 48 kHz audio via a Mac, PC or Apple iOS device for podcasts, YouTube videos, field recording, or to capture acoustic/vocal performances. All four members of the new MOTIV range are Apple MFi (made for iPhone, iPod, or iPad) certified devices, including three condenser models (the MV5, MV88 stereo model, and MV51 large-diaphragm model) and a sleek digital audio interface (MVi) that can connect directly to any iOS device without additional adapters or connection kits. For in-depth control, there’s also the free ShurePlus™ MOTIV Mobile Recording iOS app.

The microphones and interface come with five user-selectable DSP modes — Speech, Singing, Flat, Acoustic Instrument, and Loud — designed to help entry-level users seeking better audio quality, and which set audio parameters on the different models behind the scenes, including gain, EQ, and compression.

“The design of the MOTIV range acknowledges respected Shure products of the past, while offering the latest in modern technology and connectivity,” comments Shure Senior Product Manager Wolfgang Bilz. “The MOTIV range was conceived to offer everyone the means to record high-quality sound directly onto mobile and USB devices. With their advanced sound quality, durable construction, powerful DSP and flexible operation, they continue the high standards for which Shure is known.”

About MOTIV Digital Products
• MV5 Digital Condenser Microphone: The MV5 is ideal for recording vocals and acoustic instruments, or for use with Skype, and comes equipped with three DSP modes, Micro-B to USB and Micro-B to Lightning cables. Engineered for quick and easy portable use, the MOTIV MV5 has a custom tuned microphone capsule and a built-in headphone output for real-time monitoring. It’s available in grey and black and ships complete with a detachable desktop stand and integrated thread mount compatible with any quarter-inch standard camera tripod.

• MV88 iOS Digital Stereo Condenser Microphone: The MV88 allows users of any Apple iPhone, iPod, or iPad equipped with a Lightning connector to capture high-quality field recordings on the go.

The one-inch capsule element is easily monitored in real-time through the built-in headphone output, and the striking vintage design includes an integrated kickstand for desktop use, which quickly adapts for use with standard mic stands.

• MVi Digital Audio Interface: The durable, low-profile MVi connects any XLR microphone or quarter-inch (6.3 mm) jack instrument (guitar, bass, or keyboard) to an iOS device, Mac, or PC for high-quality audio capture. In addition to the five built-in DSP preset modes, the MVi also includes Micro-B to Lightning and Micro-B to USB cables, as well as Shure’s onboard touch panel control for quick access to gain, mute, and headphone volume adjustments.

Mini review: iPhone 6

Posted by Mikers On November - 26 - 2014 ADD COMMENTS

iphone-61If you could bottle and sell the ‘anticipation’ of the world’s legions of Apple fan prior to each new iPhone release, you’d be one wealthy SOB. It never fails to amuse and amaze me, just how much build up there is. And I say to myself every year, I’m not going to buy into all the leaked pre-release videos and blurry images that appear online before the official product is unveiled, but I end up scouring all the apple news related sites for all the latest news and images nonetheless.

Well the big day arrived this September (as it does most years), and we now have not one, but two new flagship iPhones, the 6 and the 6 Plus. And it without a doubt, Apple has answered many of the questions fans have been hoping for leading up to the launch of Apples redesigned iPhones.

Both new models share most of the same key features, such as being powered by the new A8 2nd gen processor, which is dual core 64 bit and clocks in at 1.4GHz, plus you get the M8 motion coprocessor. There is also 1GB of RAM. They both feature a thinner, more rounded form factor and include a sleek glass front the curves to meet the rounded body. I’ve personally been longing for this shape to return since the iPhone 3.  They just feel more comfortable and natural in the hand.

So while both phones perform virtually the same, the overall size of them is the main difference. The display on the 6 is  4.7 inches, and the 6 Plus offers a huge 5.5 inches, and the later also delivers 1920-by-1080 which is full HD visual specs. Naturally, the 6 Plus is wider, longer, and heavier too. Rather than bore you with any more specs, they’re all available here https://www.apple.com/iphone-6/specs.

Keeping in mind I went from my everyday phone, an iPhone 4S, straight to reviewing these two, the change was dramatic, to say the least. I’ve got friends with the iPhone 5, but that model for some reason just didn’t appeal to me personally, so I skipped that whole generation.

Iphone 6 synthEven though I had both phones to review at the same time, I felt it would be sensible to ‘live’ with the iPhone 6, before even taking the 6 Plus out of the box. From day one with the 6, I knew I was going to love these new phones. From the more responsive OS (yes I kept iOS 6.4 on my 4S), to the jump from 3G to 4G, impressive battery life, and crisp screen resolution, the changes were momentous in almost every way. The 6 feels extremely thin next to my 4S, which isn’t surprising given the physical specs, but together with the curved form factor it is real improvement is design.

When I finally pulled the 6 Plus out of the box, after a month with the 6, it did initially feel a little cumbersome, but honestly, within a few days, it’s larger dimensions and added weight weren’t an issue, and I preferred it over the 6. The larger display, enhanced camera, and added battery life were some of contributing factors in this. I can however see how this model may not suit all users, perhaps females with small hands, and I won’t lie it won’t fit comfortably in every pocket/purse/bra, so lugging it around for some might be a chore.

Input/Output wise, both models feature the now standard lightening adaptor on the bottom along for charging/syncing, along with the headphone port and a mono speaker. The left hand side of the handset has the familiar volume controls and the mute button, which I personally get heaps of use out of, and hope they never remove it. The biggest change to the design has seen the sleep/wake switch relocated from the top to the right hand edge, just above the sim card slot. For many iPhone users, including myself, this takes some getting used to.

Some small, but useful, software features appear on the 6 Plus that it’s smaller brother doesn’t have including a landscape mode, but they aren’t deal breakers. And until developers start to take advantage of this landscape mode, the form factors are the main reason you would go for one over the other.

Iphone 6 drumsSo how do these new models fit into the existing iOS music making eco-system? As you can see from the images I’ve taken of the 6 and 6 Plus side-by-side, the clear winner for any touch-based app is having a bigger display to play with, whether it for easier access to keys on a synth, or tweaking knobs on a virtual guitar amp. There is always going to be a trade-off between something that is extremely portable but perhaps not as easy to operate, then something in the tablet domain that is not as pocket friendly but is far easier to perform on. While both the 6 and the 6 Plus offer more screen real estate over earlier iPhone models, it comes down to each user’s personal needs and desired experience. For example, if and when inspiration strikes and you just have to put an idea down right there and then, you’re more likely to have your phone within reach, than a tablet. As I mentioned, after spending the first few days with the 6 Plus, the added size wasn’t even a concern. I’d pick up the 6 every now and then, and compare the two in both of my hands, and didn’t at any point feel the desire to want to go back to the 6.

One other thing important to note, while the 6 Plus is certainly entering tablet size territory, it doesn’t run iPad apps, and there is a boot load of killer music apps that are still only iPad exclusive.

So for the win, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus offer more screen real estate than previous iPhones, they offer improved processing power, longer battery life and obviously run the latest version of iOS, 8. It was no surprise to see existing music apps load faster, and show no signs of lag (unlike my aging 4S). What I’m really waiting for now, is the next wave of new music apps that truly take advantage of these enhanced features and power, so I can finally discard my 4S to my historic desk draw of outdated tech. (Actually that’s a lie, I’ve since ordered a 6 Plus for myself, as I couldn’t bare the thought of going back to what looked like a toy phone in comparison)

The latest iPhones, like all the previous models, are available to buy outright from Apple and authorised 3rd party retailers, or as part of a 1 or 2 year contract with the provider of your choice.Iphone 6 guitar
