Zaxcom Fader Motion Capture http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/21548/zaxcom-fader-motion-capture Fri, 15 Feb 2019 09:28:57 -0700 Vitaliy_Kiselev 21548@/talks/discussions image

Zaxcom is proud to announce Fader Motion Capture (FMC), a feature that records the fader levels and movements made by the production sound mixer in real time into a separate file. The file can be then imported into a post workflow where the fader movements are replicated in the workstation. This time-saving technology allows post production to edit and remaster the location mix without starting from scratch. “Today, many hours of the location mix can be discarded by post as the mix track is being remixed from isolated tracks,” says Glenn Sanders, President of Zaxcom. “Fader Motion Capture will allow the industry to utilize more of the location mix with the added benefits of a fully editable track and saving time.”

How it works

Fader Motion Capture is available on Deva 24 as a standalone recorder or when paired with Mix-16 or Oasis control surfaces. It creates a separate FADER folder containing “.FAD” files found on Deva 24’s recordings. These files can then be converted into AAF files using free downloadable software called Zaxcom Fader Motion Capture to AAF Converter.

Once converted to AAF, the files can then be imported into the workstation. The new files can be added to any timeline where key frames generated by the location mix can be fully edited and remixed. To view the Fader Motion Capture key frames in the workstation change the audio view to “volume”.

Workstation compatibility

Fader Motion Capture is compatible with Media Composer, Media Composer Ultimate, Pro Tools and Pro Tools Ultimate. To use Fader Motion Capture in Pro Tools, users must first import the converted AAF files into Media Composer then export the audio through Media Composer to be imported into Pro Tools for further editing.

Availability

Fader Motion Capture is standard feature on Deva 24 and is currently available in beta release. The Zaxcom Fader Motion Capture to AAF Converter software is both PC and MAC compatible. You can find out more info by visiting http://zaxcom.com

IK Multimedia iLoud MTM Reference Speakers http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/21382/ik-multimedia-iloud-mtm-reference-speakers Thu, 24 Jan 2019 00:31:06 -0700 Vitaliy_Kiselev 21382@/talks/discussions

IK Multimedia debuts iLoud® MTM, a compact, no-compromise, reference monitor designed to deliver pristine sound and an unprecedented level of accuracy that redefines nearfield monitoring for the modern, computer-based, professional and home studio.

When IK's earlier monitor system, the iLoud Micro Monitors, launched in 2016, producers and engineers at every level marvelled at the performance coming from such a small setup, so IK challenged its design team to push this concept even further and create a new compact design with a sound quality that would rival monitors several times the price and provide innovative features not found anywhere else.

iLoud MTM offers an ultra-flat frequency response, but more importantly, a truly linear phase response as well - a premiere feature in this price segment available only on a handful of products costing considerably more - to provide natural, true-to-life sound. This is achieved through IK's advanced DSP expertise that also provides for digital crossovers and self-calibration derived from IK's award-winning ARC™ System. This enables iLoud MTM monitors to deliver unsurpassed accuracy, clarity and transparency, with a generous 100W RMS power and a class-defying 40 Hz to 24 kHz frequency response. In addition, the symmetrical MTM design provides superior imaging and precision, even at close distances, with a perfectly perfect sweet-spot, thanks to the included tilt-able isolation bases. This enables users to create mixes that will translate across multiple playback systems, with no ear fatigue.

Building upon IK's acclaimed iLoud Micro Monitors, this new compact monitor delivers the accuracy and bass response of larger monitors, and superior audio quality when listening at close distances. This makes iLoud MTM the ideal monitor for nearfield work and a workhorse monitor for desktop use in a home or project studio.

Reference-class, ultra-linear response

The primary role of any studio monitor is to deliver accurate, uncoloured sound for easier mixing decisions that will translate across multiple playback systems. iLoud MTM uses the most advanced DSP techniques to provide total control of the speaker's performance, delivering results simply not obtainable with traditional analogue designs. Highs are neutral and defined, mids and lows are clear and as balanced as ever. Users can mix for hours with no ear fatigue, and their work will translate better than ever.

And of course it's loud, with 100W RMS total power per speaker and 103dB SPL maximum sound pressure, delivering the exceptional volume the iLoud brand is known for.

Digitally-controlled for precision audio

iLoud MTM uses audiophile-grade, high resolution algorithms and top-of-the line A/D converters to carefully manage cross-overs, filtering, time alignment, equalization, dynamics control and auto-calibration. Totally DSP-controlled and precision time-aligned, iLoud MTM also manages the off-axis response to minimize the effects of room reverberation. The advanced onboard processing is the product of IK's over twenty years of experience in digital signal processing, helping iLoud MTM deliver sound far beyond anything in its size or class.

Extended low-end that rivals larger systems

iLoud Micro Monitor surprised the world with bass performance delivered from a 3" speaker that "defied physics". iLoud MTM offers even more, with bass response down to a surprising 40Hz, ideal for modern music styles.

iLoud MTM also debuts IK's new patent-pending Physical Response Linearization (PRL™) system that uses a precise model of the enclosure's design, construction and materials, combined with electro-mechanical measurements of the real units, to correct the system's performance in real time. The result is a stunningly "firm", balanced and defined low end, to surpass the sound of speakers even twice iLoud MTM's size.

A new phase in precision sound reproduction

The great majority of conventional studio monitors - even high-end designs - suffer from skewed phase response caused by traditional, phase-shifting crossovers and driver/enclosure phase alterations. The end result is an unfocused stereo image, blurry transients, and overall lack of detail.

iLoud MTM leverages IK's two decades of DSP experience to offer a true phase coherent response across the useful frequency spectrum, for unbelievably realistic, natural sound. Users will hear instruments and dialogue as if they were happening live, discover more detail in their tracks than ever before, and avoid wasting hours trying to EQ away issues that were never there. This linear phase response is rarely found in speakers even several times iLoud MTM's price.

Symmetrical design for superior imaging and precision

iLoud MTM uses a midrange-tweeter-midrange symmetrical design, with a pair of 3.5" high performance woofers and one 1" high definition tweeter, which provide ultra-precise, defined, point-source sound that simply can't be achieved by traditional 2-way systems at close distances.

The result is a more natural, life-like sound that minimizes the ear fatigue caused by traditional 2- or 3-way designs where different frequencies arrive at the listener's ears at different times, so users can mix longer with less effort.

iLoud MTM's design also offers exceptional sound dispersion, enhancing the transparency and neutrality. The controlled dispersion minimizes the impact of room acoustics, for even truer monitoring. The end result is faster, easier mixing with better results. On top of that, this innovative design keeps the monitor dimensions to a minimum (30 to 50% smaller than comparable monitors), to fit in even the smallest spaces.

Instantly adjust to the acoustic environment

Today's studios range from dedicated, acoustically-treated spaces to a spare bedroom. To help optimize the monitoring for any room's particular acoustics, iLoud MTM monitors feature built-in acoustic auto-calibration derived from IK's award winning ARC™ System, with IK's reference ARC™ microphone included, to automatically adjust the frequency response to their positioning. Users simply set up the monitors, place the mic in the preferred listening position, and press a button to instantly provide custom calibration for the specific listening environment. iLoud MTM also offers a low-frequency extension control and low and high-frequency trim controls to adjust the response to suit individual tastes.

Always get the perfect angle

iLoud MTM includes a tilting mount that not only helps isolate it, but also adjusts from 0° to 20° for correct positioning in a wide range of setups. That's higher than most other "tilting" monitors that too often can't actually reach the required angle for desktop or other close-listening setups. To cover the full spectrum of installation options, a rubber base for horizontal shelf-placement, and a bottom thread to mount conveniently on mic stands, are also included.

Combined with its symmetrical design and phase-coherent response, iLoud MTM allows for ultra-focused, accurate monitoring anywhere.

Price and availability

iLoud MTM will be available in Q2, 2019 at a MSRP of €349.99* each.

Sony PCM-D10 Audio Recorder http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/21343/sony-pcm-d10-audio-recorder Fri, 18 Jan 2019 18:34:00 -0700 Vitaliy_Kiselev 21343@/talks/discussions image

Hi-Res Audio takes your recordings to the next level

Record professional sound with Hi-Res Audio at up to 192kHz/24 bit. Whether it’s your live music set, new podcast episode or breaking news report, the PCM-D10 unlocks a new level of detail and texture.

Connect all your gear with twin XLR/TRS jack

Plug in two inputs for high-quality two-channel recording. Compatible with XLR and TRS connectors, the twin jack gives you more choice over your sources, from mics and mixers to keyboards. These jacks are independently mic or line level switchable and have independent 48V phantom power. You’ll also find a dedicated stereo 3.5mm mini jack input.

Capture flawless sound with dual ADCs

Combining two top-of-the-line AK4558 A/D D/A converters with our own high-quality technology, the PCM-D10 raises the bar for your recordings. Working in tandem, they maximise S/N and allow you to capture flawless sound at up to 192kHz.

Take total control of your input levels

With the variable analog gain amplifier, you can dial in your audio levels with precision. The recorder features independent dials for your L and R channels, so you’re free to adjust both, or just one, of your inputs. And because these are high-quality analog controls, you can adjust the gain smoothly, without the step noise that can be encountered with digital volume.

Analog headphone amp for pitch-perfect playback

Whether you’re monitoring live or reliving the performance, you’ll enjoy clear, detailed audio and high output power from the PCM-D10’s high-quality MAX9723 analog headphone amp. This also features an integrated analog volume controller for smooth adjustment.

High S/N mode

With high S/N mode, you can stop worrying about lost low levels. The PCM-D10’s two ADCs record at different volumes – one regular and one lower – and if any low levels are lost, the device automatically replaces these sections with audio captured at -12dB. The result? Clear recordings for even the most dynamic performances.

Power supplied by batteries or USB-TypeC

Choose from different power supply options to match your recording environment. USB Type-C™ can be more suited to studio time, while dry cell batteries (4xAA) are ideal for recording in the field.

Capture more with up to 256GB of SD card storage

With 16GB internal memory, you’re always ready to lay down Hi-Res recordings. And with the capacity to add up to 256GB of SD card storage, you can record professional audio, even through the longest sessions. Plus, if you turn on Cross-Memory REC mode, the recorder will automatically switch to SD card when you exceed the internal memory, so you can be sure you never miss a take.

Hit record from your smartphone

Use the Sony REC Remote app to start recordings from your smartphone. This helps eliminate the interference sometimes caused by jogging the device when you hit the REC button. You can also use the app to adjust most recording settings, mark tracks and monitor your levels. Available for Android and iOS.

RODE SoundField NT-SF1 microphone http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/19437/rode-soundfield-nt-sf1-microphone Fri, 13 Apr 2018 00:28:21 -0600 Vitaliy_Kiselev 19437@/talks/discussions image

The first product for the SoundField By RØDE family is a marriage of SoundField’s pristine ambisonic recording technology, and RØDE’s commitment to audio excellence accessible by all creators. Completely designed and made in Australia at RØDE’s Sydney campus, the NT-SF1 is a triumph of innovation and manufacturing quality. Featuring four of RØDE’s all-new, ultra-quiet ½-inch TF45C capsules in tetrahedral array, the NT-SF1 produces natural, transparent four channel A-format recordings which can be transformed and manipulated in B-Format, courtesy of the soon-to-be-released SoundField by RØDE plugin.

“When The Freedman Group acquired SoundField in late-2016, the aim was to continue producing the premier 360-degree audio capture loved by the professionals who bring us cinema sound and 7.1 broadcast,” says Freedman Group CEO Damien Wilson. “And we are. But, as is the RØDE way, we have brought our manufacturing and design expertise to bear on this new family of microphones. The SoundField By RØDE NT-SF1 is for creators for whom the ultra-high-end SoundField products are out of reach, and delivers results unmatched by all but the most expensive ambisonic microphones.”

Head of RØDE’s New Product Development and former Director of New Product at SoundField for 16 years, Pieter Schillebeeckx, says this is the most exciting development in the technology in decades. “Delivering this kind of professional-use technology at a sub-USD$1000 price point is a world first in the ambisonic world,” he says. “It gives budding VR creators, immersive filmmakers and videogame world builders an accessible and high-quality way to dive into 360-degree-with-height audio capture.”

Due to release soon in 2018, the SoundField By RØDE NT-SF1 will democratise one of the last bastions of high-end recording the way RØDE has always done: with precision, price and unbeatable after-sales service.

That’s why today, Zaxcom, a leader in innovative audio technology, is pleased to announce the ZMT3-Flex, a wireless transmitter created to capture the on the field experience of professional sports.

Glenn Sanders, President of Zaxcom says, “We’re excited about this new transmitter. Zaxcom has always been part of the sports and entertainment industry and wanted to develop something that boosted functionally while maximizing player safety.”

Inspired by a creative collaboration with top audio specialists, the ZMT3-Flex is part of Zaxcom’s patented Digital Recording Wireless line that can transmit a fully encrypted digital audio signal while simultaneously recording the audio internally.

The ZMT3-Flex is constructed from a soft yet durable silicon rubber that allows the transmitter to bend and flex, providing an elevated level of safety for the professional sports player. The design also features rounded corners and is extremely thin at only 0.4 inches (1.02 cm). It weighs only 3 oz (85 g).

The unit is versatile, capable of transmitting audio from a single mono microphone or dual microphones in stereo through two microdot inputs. The internal recording simultaneously provides a catalog of all audio whether transmitted or not to a microSD card with timecode. The audio is recorded to a highly reliable lossless format called MARF that eliminates file corruption due to a dead battery or early card removal.

When transmission security is of the utmost importance audio can be encrypted using one of the 16 million encryption codes for an unbreachable level of privacy.

ZaxNet™ functionally is included which allows you to control the ZMT3-Flex remotely without removing the bodypack from the talent. Sound recordists can select a channel, adjust the input gain, jam timecode or place the unit in record and playback modes.

The ZMT3-Flex is also equipped with Zaxcom High Density modulation or ZHD for short. ZHD increases the number of available channels at a location. This is especially important in places where there are a number of nearby wireless systems. An integrated OLED is paired with manual controls to navigate an intuitive menu system. Powering the unit is a single rechargeable battery. The ZMT3-Flex is shipping now with a MSRP of $2,495.

Tascam TH-07 High Definition Headphone Monitors http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/21081/tascam-th-07-high-definition-headphone-monitors Sat, 08 Dec 2018 14:16:03 -0700 Vitaliy_Kiselev 21081@/talks/discussions image

TASCAM has introduced the TH-07 High Definition Headphone Monitors. A premium headphone intended to duplicate the audio quality of high-end near field monitors, the TH-07 has been tuned for full but natural bass, flat mid-range, and clear high end and is suitable for mixing, monitoring, or any audio task demanding outstanding quality. The new headphones employ custom-made 50 mm drivers and offer a wide 10 Hz to 30 kHz frequency response and sensitivity of 100 dB ±3 dB. Their closed-back design allows a full bass response while blocking out most external noise.

With its circumaural design and earcups of soft, pliable leather that fit snugly over the ear, TH-07s remain comfortable over long sessions, even when wearing eyeglasses. The earcups can be rotated and angled for maximum flexibility and easy one-ear monitoring and provide substantial isolation from sounds in the outside world.

The TASCAM TH-07 comes with two detachable cables. One cable is coiled and shorter for low-clutter, short-distance work and has a 1/8-inch connector; the other is straight and longer (approximately 8½ feet) and has a multi-connector that accommodates both 1/8-inch and ¼-inch jacks. Both cables have gold-plated connectors. A leather bag with a pull-tie closure protects the headphones when they are being transported or not in use.
