  2. Hey XBaker, It's a cute little control surface. Currently I am using the Mackie Control Surface (MCU). I am hoping some time during this your to switch to the Icon Qcon Pro G2. This control surface is smooth and the faders aren't as noisy as the MCU's, which aren't really that noisy at all to think about it. It's nice to have all of these controls at your finger tips.
  3. Audient has a new Audio I/O with 24×24 EVO 16 audio interface EVO wanted to come up with a super-sized incarnation of its easy-to-use recording gear concept. Up till now, it was exemplified by the simple and portable, but also capable EVO 4 and EVO 8 audio interfaces. The EVO 16 doubles the latter, but the size increase is manageable. The unit fits both desktops and racks (rack ears sold separately) and its chassis is made of solid steel chassis with non-slip rubber feet. That’s just respectable. The EVO 16 also breaks out the hi-res, full color screen which I still associate with pricier units. It seems decent screens are finally starting to trickle down more affordable models. The screen is being put to use by EVO’s all-new Motion UI control system. It uses to intelligently display information about your session ‘as and when you need it’. Apparently, the experience is comparable to using a Smart device. You know, the sort that kind of knows what you’re going for most of the time and tries to deliver that on tap, with little menu diving required. With Audient parenting EVO, there’s plenty of that brains and technology going the EVO 16. However, it stays affordably priced and novice-friendly. An uncomplicated interface with lots of room to plug stuff into that’s non-expensive is definitely something I can get behind. Is there anything in the unit itself stopping one from making the next chart-topper? I seriously doubt it. Read the specs.

  4. Sorry, I thought I was reading about the QCon Pro
  5. Go to time line @3:09 to see the ART PRO VLA II and hear what Dave says about the compressor.
  6. Alan, Information from the ART website (Keep in mind that the tubes in this Compressor doesn't have much to do with the sound coming out of the compressor, so changing them wouldn't make much of a noticeable change, however, others may differ) 😉 Overview The ProVLA II is a tube driven Vactrol®-based Compressor / Leveling amplifier designed to excel in any professional audio environment. Superior performance and an incredible tone makes the ProVLA II and indispensable tool for tracking, mixing, mastering, dynamic control of live sound sources or for use in broadcast audio. Capable of delivering a far more musical natural sounding and sonically transparent compression than competitive units in its class, the ProVLA II uses an Opto-electronic circuit rather than the more typical design VCA driven level detection circuit. This VCA-less design coupled with a 12AT7 vacuum tube in the gain stage makes the Pro-VLA II the ideal dynamic control device for critical audio applications. Exceptional signal integrity with extremely low noise and low distortion is achieved in the ProVLA II by utilizing a transformerless design throughout. Vactrol® Technology Unlike typical compression units that use Voltage Controlled Amplifiers (VCA’s) to handle level detection, the Pro VLA II’s Opto-electronic design allows a far more transparent and musical sounding compression without sounding aggressive or un-natural. This Vactrol based optical electronic circuitry is the basic component of the classic highly sought after compressors of past. Vactrol® design allows the ProVLA II to react to audio signal in much the same way the eye naturally adjusts to fluctuations in light levels – smoothly, quietly and almost imperceptibly. Soft Knee Leveling The ProVLA II is a soft knee leveling amplifier by design. Although capable of providing dramatic compression effects, the ProVLA II was designed to excel in any application where transparent, expressively musical dynamics control is desired. Comprehensive Metering Large highly visible backlit analog VU meters accurately display input and output levels while extremely fast 10-segment LED’s display gain reduction. For added functionality, the LED’s display either average level for mastering & mixing applications or peak hold for monitoring individual sources when tracking audio. Versatile I/O XLR and 1/4-inch TRS balanced inputs and outputs are provided to ensure the ProVLA II can connect with any audio source or hardware. A +4dBu/-10dBu mode switch optimizes ProVLA II I/O for either consumer or professional equipment. Key Features VCA-Less Vactrol Opto-Compression Design Mastering Quality Audio Signal Path with Tube Gain Stage Enhanced Link Mode – While in stereo link mode, channel 1 level control acts as a master output level and channel 2 becomes a balance control between them, – optimizing the Pro-VLA II for use as a mastering tool Variable Threshold, Ratio & Output Controls LED Backlit VU Input/Output Level Metering LED Metering Indicates Both Average Level And Peak Hold Accurate Ten Segment LED Gain Reduction Metering +4dBu/-10dBu Mode Switch Optimizes Pro-VLA II For Interface with Professional OR Consumer Grade Components Active Balanced XLR And 1/4-Inch Inputs & Outputs Toroidal Transformer Reduces Mechanical & Electrical Hum Specifications Equivalent Input Noise@+4dBu: -99dBu (”A” weighted) / @-10 dBV: -107dBu (”A” weighted) Maximum Attenuation30dB Input Impedance10K Ω Maximum Input Level+20dBu (in +4dBu mode) / +10dBV (in -10dBV mode) Maximum Output Level+20dB max Frequency Response10Hz to 100KHz (+/- 0.5dB) Dynamic Range> 100dB (20-20KHz) Attack Time0.25msec. to 50msec. variable Release TimeVariable 150ms to 3s SlopeVariable 2:1 to 20:1 Total Harmonic Distortion<0.1% (typical) Dimensions3.5″ x 19″ x 9.2″ (8.9cm x 48.3cm x 23.3cm) Weight10.5lbs (4.76kg)
  7. You open the software Maschine up as Soft Synth in cakewalk
  8. Bonjour, La vidéo a déjà été faite, il vous suffit d'aller dans la section des tutoriels Cakewalk et de rechercher Maschine Mikro MK3, cependant, voici le lien que vous recherchez.
  9. Here is a video that I came across showing how easy it is to use outboard gear in Cakewalk . There aren't a lot of videos demonstrating this, so I thought I'd show what I found. Enjoy.
  10. I wanted an additional compressor in my hardware rack but I didn't want to break the bank on it. I started watching YouTube videos to see what folks were purchasing that worked well but didn't cost a lot and offered dual ins and outs. I came across the ART PRO VLA II Compressor and started to investigate further. This is not a bad compressor to use mainly on vocals, but it can be used on other things as well. I know this Compressor has been out for a while, but I never considered it before with all of the big name compressors floating around. Nice Job ART!

  14. The Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO 250 Ohm Over-Ear Studio Headphones or The Beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO 250 Ohm Over-Ear Studio Headphones are just as great. One is open back for mixing and one is closed back for tracking. I buy mine from here ~~~> HHGregg
