NAMM 2008: SONNOX Supressor

Das neueste Baby in der angenehm gestalteten und modern klingenden SONNOX-Reihe (ehemals Sony Oxford) ist der SUPRESSOR – ein De-Esser. Das mag erstmal nicht so spannend klingen, doch alle Homerecorder mit beschränktem Budget und China-Mics der unteren Klasse werden sich freuen. Die Teile bedanken die Verwendung mit besseren Preamps (RNP, DAV, P1) gerne neben höherem Detailreichtum auch mit sägenden Zischlauten. So wie ich SONNOX kenn, wird das ein rundumglücklichendlichnichtmehrvonhanddieS-lauteausdemmixschreiben Plugin.


Sonnox is excited to announce the launch of its first new plug-in since the Company became independent in April 2007. The Oxford SuprEsser joins the existing range of highly regarded audio processing plug-ins in the Sonnox line-up.

The Sonnox Oxford SuprEsser is both a very highly-featured professional De-Esser and a Dynamic EQ at the same time. There is a basic mode for quick fixes, but also an advanced mode for increased functionality and fine-tuning. The combination of an intuitive FFT display and three listen modes enables the user to easily see and hear exactly where the problem frequencies are, allowing the rapid reduction or removal of the offending audio. Rather than simply allowing a frequency to trigger full-band compression, only the offending frequencies are carefully carved out leaving the rest of the mix untouched.

Since the SuprEsser can operate at all frequencies, ‘plosives’ and other annoyances can also be removed effortlessly, making it more than a simple De-Esser. Additional features include Automatic Level Tracking, Linear Phase Filtering and a Wet/Dry blend control for final balancing.

“The R&D and market research process for our next plug-in convinced us that there is room for a truly professional De-Esser,” says Sonnox Sales & Marketing Manager, Nathan Eames, “so it was an obvious move to fill this void with a fully spec’d, high-quality plug-in, which has actually evolved in the development process to become a whole lot more than a simple De-Esser. The Dynamic EQ section, for example, is extremely versatile and I can see it being used in a creative capacity as well as its more obvious corrective usage.”

Preis: a.A., aber da gibt es bestimmt wieder die rapide günstigen Bundles


NAMM 2008: Vorprogramm

Um die Wartezeit bis zu den nächsten Neuheiten zu vertreiben, hier ein aktuelles Video zum Thema straight outta Youtube.


  • der freche Stifthalter rechts im Bild
  • die tighte Musik, die wie aus den Newssendungen bei Robocop klingt
  • Bonus Features

  • leeres Blatt Papier
  • Good Night & Good Luck,



    Uiuiuih! Der Preamp aus dem ISA 110 mitsamt Lundahl Transformer und ein paar schönen Desktop/Projektstudio-Monitoring Features. Unschwer zu erkennen ist das Bild ein CAD-Konstrukt und noch nicht das fertige Gerät, deswegen ist „Lieferbar April 2008″ mit Vorsicht zu genießen. Arnd schaut morgen, ob er das Teil in echt zu fassen bekommt. Kosten soll’s 499 Brit.Pfund.

    Focusrite ISA One – a classic single-channel pre-amp.

    ISA One delivers Focusrite’s prestigious ISA transformer-based pre amp in a rugged and portable chassis, at a ground-breaking price.

    ISA One features the classic vintage microphone pre-amplifier topology from the original ISA110 module, including the Lundahl L1538 transformer and bespoke zobel network. (The original 110 pre amp formed the cornerstone of each channel of Focusrite’s legendary Forte console.)

    The pre amp is complemented by a line input (XLR and TRS Jack) and an independent D.I. channel, complete with dedicated gain control, active or passive impedance switch, a TRS Jack output for routing to an amp and an independent XLR output on the rear. This flexible independent D.I. makes the ISA One ideal both for engineers wishing to blend a D.I.’d guitar signal with a mic’d guitar cabinet, and for demanding performers who require a single classic solution for both guitar and vocals.

    ISA One also features an insert point, should the need arise to place extra processing between the pre amp or D.I. and the optional converter. Phantom power, phase reverse and a 75Hz, 18dB/octave high-pass filter are also available from the angled front fascia.

    Independent input metering for both channels is provided in the form of a moving coil VU meter with variable calibration to suit analogue and digital recording media, alongside two six-LED peak meters; inputs can be metered either pre- or post-insert. The meter calibrations utilise all the same reference points as Digidesign’s Pro Tools HD system, allowing effortless line-up.

    ISA One’s headphone output features a dedicated volume control, which delivers an external stereo cue mix, (a simple click track, or a stereo mix feed from an interface or a live console,) fed to the headphones via two TRS jack inputs on the rear of the unit.

    Focusrite ISA One main features include:
    Rugged and portable transformer-based pre amp
    Line input (XLR and TRS Jack)
    Independent D.I. channel
    Insert Point
    VU Meter
    Six Led Peak meters
    Headphone out with dedicated volume control
    Optional Stereo A/D Converter provides two channels of 24 bit/192kHz A-D conversion with a dynamic range of 119dB.

    NAMM 2008: Waves IGTR


    Erste NAMM 2008 News: was hübsches kleines für die Gitarristenwestentasche.

    Knoxville, TN (January 8, 2008) — Waves Audio is celebrating the new year with the release of their pocket-sized device, the iGTR Personal Guitar Processor. iGTR puts the GTR family’s quality guitar amp and effects sounds into an intuitive, convenient, portable pocket-sized device that allows guitarists to plug in and play, anytime, anywhere.

    Although the convenient and sleek design allows portability, the iGTR has several options and ranges for users to dial in:
    Three Virtual Amps: Warm, Normal and Bright
    Modulation Effects: Phaser, Tremolo and Wah
    Ambience Effects: Reverb, Chorus and Delay

    iGTR’s multiple inputs and outputs enable it to act as a preamp and recording effects processor or as an on-the-go tool for playing alone or with friends. Additionally, guitarists can plug an iPod or other mp3 device to jam along with their favorite songs. The inputs and outputs include:
    1/4″ guitar input
    Mini stereo auxiliary input (used for mp3 connection or jamming with friends)
    Two mini stereo outputs for headphones and speakers

    The iGTR is powered by four AAA batteries (included) or a standard 6-12V DC Adapter (not included). The iGTR also comes with a belt clip and a 50cm stereo auxiliary cable.

    “The GTR series has brought guitar processing technology and effects modeling to a new level,” says Waves Audio CEO Gilad Keren. “Our new iGTR puts that power in a pocket-sized device for the on-the-go guitarist. For convenient practicing, playing along with favorite songs or jamming with friends, the iGTR is second-to-none.”

    The iGTR will be showcased at NAMM and released by late January.

    Access Virus Snow: SÜÜÜÜß!

    Access Virus

    Oh Gott, die neue Flocke von Access entlockt mir Glücksgkuckser! Da haben die den Baby-Eisbär Effekt voll ausgenutzt. Der neue Snow bietet eine Menge Features für (hoffentlich) wenig Geld. Leider ist die Webseite nur auf Flash, weswegen sich der Infotext nicht kopieren läßt – so click here für mehr.

    “The Virus TI Snow is the ideal companion for live musicians and for those who want to take a powerful but compact synth to a jam session.” said Marc Schlaile, Access’ Product Director. “Over a thousand sounds can be accessed with a maximum of 4 button pushes.

    With 3 programmable hardware knobs per patch and additional ones for filter and envelope control, performers can control the core of the sound without having to dive into an edit menu.”

    The TI Snow is 100% compatible with all patches for the TI series and plays back a maximum of 50 voices with 4 multi-timbral parts (64 multi performances, 512 RAM and 512 ROM patches).

    The oscillator models include virtual analog, hypersaw, wavetable and graintable types. The filter section features a Moog cascade filter emulation with 1-4 poles and self-oscillation among others.

    The FX section includes simultaneous reverb, delay, eq, distortion, lo-fi effects, bass boost, phaser and chorus/flanger – even in multi mode.

    Sounds can also be edited and stored using Virus Control, their VST/AU/RTAS compatible plug-in. 16 patch select buttons can be used for fast access to edit menus and navigation. “Easy edit mode” allows for fast and dramatic changes providing a selection of context-sensitive parameters which adapt by analysis of the underlying sound patch. Nevertheless, pretty much all parameters can be edited on the hardware when switched into “expert edit mode”.

    The sturdy metal enclosure of Virus TI Snow houses a pair of stereo inputs and outputs (output level @ +4dB), MIDI in- and outputs.

    USB can be used for Total Integration, which offers another three stereo outputs into the Virus Control plug-in and sample-accurate MIDI timing. The audio inputs can be utilised to mangle any type of sound using the filters and effects.

    The Snow comes in a messenger bag which offers enough space for the power supply and additional cables.

    Pricing & Availability
    Virus TI Snow will be available in Spring 2008 through authorised Access dealers worldwide.

    Suggested retail price is: €1100.- (Incl. 19% MwSt) / $1.350,00
