Waves WNS: The Waves WNS noise suppressor, is a real-time multiband processor for broadband noise suppression on dialog tracks. Suitable for indoor and location dialog recordings containing constant or modulating environment noise, WNS delivers superior sound quality with minimal artifacts. WNS offers all the flexibility, portability, power and precision of software: true Pro Tools integration, multiple simultaneous instances, full recall and full automation. And because all processing takes place in the box, there's no loss in sound quality resulting from I/O conversion.
Listener Driven Radio
Listener Driven Radio: Listener Driven Radio (LDR) is a new model for radio built on crowdsourcing that allows listeners to go online or use an iPhone and offer their input into what plays next on the radio station. LDR is constantly absorbing listener input, song votes and comments on music, and automatically adapting radio programming in real-time. The audience can control the station's on-air product within the parameters the program director creates.
Two-way powered loud speaker
TH-15A: The TH-15A two-way powered loudspeaker delivers 400W of system power in a rugged design weighing 36lbs. It offers the power, portability and performance required of a compact PA. The TH-15A benefits from Mackie Active technology, which incorporates an active crossover and driver time and phase alignment for optimized system performance. The 15” woofer and 1” compression driver produce great overall sound and low-frequency response for a cabinet of this compact size. A user-adjustable three-band EQ with a sweepable mid lets the user flexibly EQ the system for the application at hand. This is a great feature for smaller setups that may not have a ton of outboard equipment.
