ISE 2017: d&b debuts plug-in for MediaMatrix

Thursday, 26 January 2017

The Netherlands - Compatibility and interoperability is key for d&b, who will launch an amplifier plug-in for the Peavey MediaMatrix NION DSP and nControl PC at the ISE Amsterdam exhibition in February 2017.

This latest push by the German loudspeaker system manufacturer to improve third party integration makes a complete d&b sound reinforcement system accessible via any MediaMatrix control method, and completely interoperable with the MediaMatrix networking approach. It follows plug-ins for the QSC Q-SYS control system and Beckhoff automation and control technology.

MediaMatrix is a networked DSP and control system that is scalable, efficient and exactly tailored to the needs of the user. Integration with MediaMatrix allows system designers to achieve high performance d&b sound quality in installation applications that require detailed, customized remote control features.

The complete system is designed and managed via PC with the MediaMatrix NWare software, and then accessed and controlled wirelessly with any smart device supporting HTML5 via the Kiosk2Go remote control platform. The system can also be controlled using wall panels, touchscreen devices and GPIOs.

The new d&b amplifier plug-in for MediaMatrix provides control parameters to adjust the mute status, levels, power On/Off, and alter the AmpPreset. This enables the complete system to be configur

Monday, 23 January 2017

USA - At NAMM 2017, Audio-Technica displayed its ATM350a Microphone Systems. Offering crisp, clear, well-balanced response even in very high SPL applications, the ATM350a Cardioid Condenser Instrument Microphone comes in six specially designed systems that provide discreet, rock-solid mounting solutions for a host of instruments, including woodwinds, strings, brass, percussion, drums and piano.

Following in the footsteps of the popular ATM350, the ATM350a is capable of handling 159 dB max SPL, a 10 dB increase over its predecessor. This allows the mic to cope with an even greater range of extremely powerful, dynamic sound sources. Like the ATM350, the new mic features a cardioid polar pattern that reduces side and rear pickup and protects against feedback. The mic's in-line power module incorporates a switchable 80 Hz hi-pass filter to help control undesired ambient noise.

"This is a notable update to one of our successful products," stated Gary Boss, Audio-Technica marketing director, pro products. "End-user feedback led us to provide additional mounting options and updated performance in the mic itself. This new variety of mounting options makes the ATM350a a versatile tool in the studio and its unprecedented build quality is perfectly suited for the road on a wide range of instruments and applications."

NAMM 2017: Auralex celebrates 40th anniversary

NAMM 2017: Auralex celebrates 40th anniversary

Monday, 23 January 2017

USA - At NAMM 2017, Auralex Acoustics kicked off the celebrations to mark its 40th anniversary. As part of this landmark event, Auralex will be offering special limited-edition commemorative products, exclusive value-added rebates, and other surprises for loyal Auralex dealers and end users.

Eric Smith, company founder and president, began the Auralex journey in 1977. He recalls, "I was 17 years old, and I applied for a job at the number-one FM radio station in Indiana, a powerhouse 50,000-Watt operation. I became acutely aware of how poor the acoustics in the control room were, just as they were in other radio facilities I found myself in subsequently.

"At the same time, I had a mobile and nightclub DJ business, where I was designing DJ systems. I was using a well-known acoustical treatment for these DJ rigs, but it would crumble, falling onto the records as they were spinning. I was looking for a better product that was affordable, had longevity, and would stand up to the rigors of the road. That's when I began to focus on developing practical, real-world, cost-effective solutions, and the roots of the Auralex brand were born."

Smith allowed his varied background and interests to help shape the goals of the Auralex brand, and that has helped drive a market-driven corporate culture. He notes, "Our staff will tell you that we consistently remind each other to

Monday, 23 January 2017

USA - Dynaudio PRO has announced its latest addition to the LYD studio monitor range. The new LYD 48 features a three-way speaker design, coupling an 8" and a 4" woofer with a 1" tweeter, making them well suited for nearfield as well as midfield monitor applications. It will be available as white and black, as the original LYD range, but also in a classic all-black version.

"We are very excited to now add a bigger brother to the LYD range," says Sebastian Rodens, product manager for Dynaudio's PRO division. "This new three-way monitor shares many of the same benefits as the original LYD range, including significant low-volume precision. Obviously, the new three-way is even more powerful and brings audio precision to your passion regardless of whether you produce electronic music, rock, jazz, classical or any other genre - and at any listening volume."

Each of the woofers and the tweeter are powered by a dedicated state-of-the-art Class D amplifier, delivering 80W / 50W / 50W of power per monitor. The amp features a 96kHz/24bit signal path and selectable input sensitivity, as well as the same Standby Mode as the original LYD speakers.

Also, like the other LYD monitors, the new three-way version features Bass Extension, allowing for a choice between the default setting or pushing towards maximum bass or maximum volume. Changes will affect the low-end response,

Final Curtain - The curtain is coming down on the most celebrated circus in the US, the Greatest Show on Earth, run by Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey.

Activists who campaigned for decades against the travelling circus's animal acts welcomed the news.

"After much evaluation and deliberation, my family and I have made the difficult business decision that Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey will hold its final performances in May," said a statement from Kenneth Feld, CEO of Feld Entertainment, the family business which has run the circus since the late 1960s.
