Ambisonic soundfield mic
Tetramic: Based on the principles of Ambisonic recording, Tetramic allows the placement of a single tetrahedral microphone in a sound field, recording of four channels of audio in A format, transform them using software into B format (W, X, Y and Z), and later interpret those four channels to essentially any single-point configuration of microphones. The four channels of B format can also be interpreted into almost any playback format.
Convertcon: Convertcon is a new three-pin male and female cable connector in a single housing. It is available with black chrome housing and gold contacts. By sliding the housing back and forth, Convertcon is transformed from a male to female connector. This new male/female cable end XLR allows for use of one connector, as it can mate with either a male or female three-pin XLR. Convertcon shares some of the features and benefits of Neutrik's best-selling XLR XX series. It also features an improved chuck type strain relief that provides higher pull-out force and makes assembly easier and faster.
Classic Series: Furman's Classic Series offers all the technologies of the Series II line, including Linear Filtering Technology (LIFT), Series Multi-Stage Protection (SMP) for the highest level of surge protection available, and automatic Extreme Voltage Shutdown (EVS) to protect connected equipment from overvoltage conditions. For rack illumination, the units feature Smooth Track LED rack lights and a rear-panel BNC connector to power any standard gooseneck lamp. The Classic Series includes three 15-amp models, the PL-8C, PL-PLUS C, and PL-PLUS DMC, along with the two 20-amp Pro models, the PL-PRO C and PL-PRO DMC. All units in the Classic Series feature nine outlets with two rear-panel isolated outlet banks to lower intercomponent noise interference, along with a Protection OK indicator on the front panel to alert users to the operational status of the unit. To accommodate bulky transformers, the power management solutions feature wall-wart spacing.
CD burning software
DMDS Burn: DMDS Burn brings watermarked CD burning to the desktop. Created in response to client needs, DMDS allows clients to use their DMDS Agent to produce audio CDs at their desktop that are individually watermarked with any data the user specifies. The entire process can be done in a few minutes, with the watermark data embedded into a CD quality audio file. Currently, record labels either have to purchase very expensive watermark burning hardware, or ship the tracks out to an external service to complete this task. Both of these alternatives are inefficient and time consuming.
IBOC Lo-loss: Myat's patent-pending technology combines FM and digital signals in a way that others said couldn't be done. It uses filters to combine digital and analog transmitters efficiently to create an IBOC signal for transmission. This method is significantly more efficient than other high-level combining techniques currently in use. Applications include use with the proposed digital sideband power increase. Up to 86 percent efficiency for digital insertion is possible. It is available for primary and extended mode IBOC operation.
Condenser vocal mic
Evolution E 965: Not only is the Evolution E 965 microphone the company's flagship product within the Evolution range, it is also its first large-diaphragm true condenser microphone. A wide frequency range, extensive dynamics, and extremely low distortion are among the mic's features. The E 965 also features a dual-diaphragm transducer, which allows users to switch between cardioid and super-cardioid pick-up patterns. When the ambient volume is loud the user can select the tighter pattern. For high sound pressure levels, users can switch on a pre-attenuation of -10dB. A low-cut filter reduces impact noise and reduces the low-frequency overemphasis during close miking. Handling noise is efficiently reduced by the shock-mount design, while an integrated pop shield and windshield make the microphone very user-friendly.
Audio editing software
Protools 8: Completely updated with a new user interface, more than 70 plug-ins and virtual instruments, fully-integrated MIDI and score editors, and an expanded array of editing features, the new Pro Tools 8 software provides everything users need to create, compose, score, record, mix, produce and broadcast all in one application. At first glance, the most noticeable new feature in Pro Tools 8 is its redesigned user interface, which frames an expanded set of creative tools and a host of features. Enhancements, such as dockable Editor windows and a configurable Edit window toolbar, make it easier to navigate than ever before.
