Posted by Scott R. Garrigus

IK Multimedia's ARC System 2.5 with new MEMS microphone is now shippingIK Multimedia is proud to announce that ARC System 2.5 with MEMS microphone is now available for shipping. Version 2.5 of the Advanced Room Correction System combines a new highly accurate MEMS measurement microphone, measurement software together with an audio correction plug-in for Mac/PC DAWs (Digital Audio Workstations) and employs Audyssey MultEQ® XT32 patented technology to greatly improve the audio monitoring accuracy of speakers in any studio or listening room.

The first system of its kind, ARC System works by measuring the room in multiple positions, producing an accurate representation of its acoustic response, then generates a correction filter that makes the response linear. This allows users to mix and compose in an environment capable of an exact representation of the music and audio being produced, regardless of the acoustic characteristics of the room. ARC System was first introduced by IK Multimedia in 2007 and quickly established itself as one of the most popular acoustic correction systems in the world...

Posted by Scott R. Garrigus

The Routledge Research Companion to Johann Sebastian Bach from RoutledgeRoutledge has published The Routledge Research Companion to Johann Sebastian Bach. This book provides an indispensable introduction to the Bach research of the past thirty-fifty years.

XILS-lab PolyM Virtual Synthesizer Plug-In
Posted by Scott R. Garrigus

XILS-lab announces availability of PolyM - an authentic recreation of the Polymoog polysynthAudio software company XILS-lab is proud to announce availability of PolyM — an authentic recreation of the pioneering Polymoog polysynth, dreamed up by American designer Dave Luce and produced by Moog Music between 1975-1980, but benefitting from finest French software skills to truly create a plug-in pleasure principal as arguably the best ‘virtual’ divide-down oscillator technology-toting soft synth available anywhere and teaching the old dog some new tricks in the process — as of July 3.

That’s today. Putting PolyM in its present-day context involves initially looking back. But back in the early-Seventies, setting out to create an analogue, functional voltage-controlled synthesizer that was polyphonic against a backdrop of monophonic mainstays proved problematic for many. Moog’s musical solution came quicker than most, making an appearance in 1975 in its extremely expensive ($5,295 USD), nine-preset original form as the Polymoog keyboard (model 203a). It included...

Soundiron Bontastic! Vintage Italian Chord Organ
Posted by Scott R. Garrigus

Soundiron released the Bontastic! Vintage Italian Chord Organ Virtual InstrumentSoundiron is pleased to announce the release of the Bontastic! Vintage Italian Chord Organ.

The Bontastic! Vintage Organ instrument captures with perfect clarity the retro sound of the rare Bontempi B4 Electronic Table Organ. The instrument's vivid orange plastic exterior echoes the popular aesthetics of the 1970s and early 1980s during which time the organ was produced. The Bontempi organ that Bontastic! recreates is deceptively simple -- 25 keys and 8 chord buttons, no stops or options. But with Bontastic! we here at Soundiron have retrofitted a classic instrument and unlocked all the potential from a classic piece of music equipment...
