Acon Digital Verberate 2 Reverb Plug-In
Posted by Scott R. Garrigus

Acon Digital releases Verberate 2 with Revolutionary Vivid Hall AlgorithmAcon Digital has released version 2 of their acclaimed reverb plug-in Verberate. Verberate 2 introduces a new late reverb algorithm called Vivid Hall that is based on entirely new technology and is designed for natural and pristine reverb tails without repeating patterns, resonances or other artifacts.

"We are very excited about the new Vivid Hall algorithm”, says Stian Aagedal, CEO of Acon. "The algorithm is time variant even when all modulation is turned off and therefore has a distinct sound quality to it that cannot be captured by convolution reverbs. Interesting for the tech-savvy is that the technology is completely different from traditional reverb design and is not based on the variations of FDN networks, comb- or allpass-filters found in the vast majority of digital reverbs”, he continues...

Sterling Audio SL230MP Mic Pair for Stereo Recording
Posted by Scott R. Garrigus

Sterling Audio SL230MP Mic Pair Offers Stunning Value for Stereo RecordingSterling Audio, makers of high-quality studio recording equipment, announces the SL230MP medium-diaphragm condenser microphones. Offered as a matched pair, the SL230MP mics are an excellent choice for capturing ultra-realistic stereo recordings of acoustic guitar, piano, percussion, choirs, string sections, entire bands or orchestras, and more. As expected from Sterling, the sound and build quality is comparable to that of microphones many times more expensive.

Each SL230 mic employs a real gold-sputtered condenser capsule with a six-micron membrane, allowing for very high sensitivity to even the subtlest dynamic nuances in the source material. The mics' cardioid pickup pattern provides excellent rejection of off-axis sounds, and a Class-A FET (field effect transistor) circuit design fosters smooth, wide frequency response and clean, consistent performance. As with most condenser mics, Sterling Audio SL230s operate on standard 48 volt phantom power...

Teenage Engineering Pocket Operator Modular Synths
Posted by Scott R. Garrigus

Teenage Engineering releases Pocket Operator Modular Series synthesizersIn our ongoing mission to help people not only listen to music but to also discover how to make music themselves, we proudly announce the pocket operator modular series. A contrast to the more expensive modular synths already on the market. We decided to design an instantly rewarding, cheaper and more portable modular system. it comes in three different colors and sizes. We simply call them the 16, the 170 and the 400, spanning from $149 - $499. Our goal was to create a “poor man's modular” and in order to make the system really affordable they all come in flat pack kits, ready to bend, build and assemble from scratch.

pocket operator goes modular!
Up until now, it has been a high barrier for new users to enter the modular scene. It's expensive and also hard to figure out what modules you need to start with. We used our pocket operator platform as a starting point to develop an easy to use modular system at an affordable price (and as with all pocket operators we have of course compromised on everything except sound quality)...
