Rupert Neve Designs has announced the RNHP, a precision headphone amplifier. Based on the headphone output stage from the 5060 Centerpiece Desktop Mixer, the RNHP is a dedicated 24V reference-quality headphone amplifier with level and impedance-calibrated +4dBu Line and unbalanced RCA inputs. There is even a 3.5mm input for consumer electronics integration. RND say it is designed with near-zero output impedance and high-power, high-headroom circuitry to drive any headphones on the market without compromise. The unit was developed by Rupert and the team to address the shortcomings of other headphone amplifiers and provide a new level of clarity. The RNHP retails at a cost of $549  www.rupertneve.com

 

High-end clocking and conversion manufacturer Antelope Audio is launching its most accessible and versatile recording tool to date, the Zen Tour. The inteface features an ultra portable form factor, Thunderbolt and USB connectivity, 8 analogue inputs and outputs, DSP effects, hardware-based guitar amp and cab simulations and more. Antelope says this makes it the ultimate creative recording tool for musicians and bands.

There are 4 switchable Mic/Line inputs and 4 High impedance/Line inputs as well as digital ADAT & S/PDIF I/O for increased connectivity options. There are both dual independent headphone outputs and dual monitor outputs. Dual reamp outputs provide versatility for guitarists and other recording artists and a talkback button on the front. Zen Tour incorporates the same parallel DSP processing capabilities found on Antelope Audio’s professional studio devices, enabling super low recording latency. These include guitar amp and cabinet simulations, EQ, and the AuraVerb reverb. With the incredibly low latency of Antelope’s Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) processing, Antelope claim their guitar amplifier models respond with the same immediacy of real tubes.

Antelope Audio continues to develop their software-based hardware control for Zen Tour with a touch screen, a handy mobile app, and a cross-platform software control panel. With its networking and remote control implementation users are able to manage all Zen Tour features from multiple computers in the same network as well as from a smartphone or tablet with iOS and Android mobile apps. Zen Tour carries a price of $1,495 or €1,495.   www.antelopeaudio.com

Eyeheight has just announced the introduction of the first two modules in its AudioLoudnessSuite, namely the AudioLoudMeter and CorrectLoudWidget. These plugins allow programme audio to be conformed quickly and easily to European or North American approved standards. The new modules are being offered for free on a six month trail licence.
AudioLoudMeter is an audio loudness metering plugin which evaluates mono, stereo and 5.1 surround. It offers metering for momentary, short term and integrated loudness plus individual loudness contributions of L, R, C, Ls and Rs. Additionally true peak readings using 8x oversampled audio are shown plus digital Loudness readout in K-weighted Full Scale (LKFS) units. There is a Loudness distribution histogram and a time-scalable loudness history graph for ATSC A/85 and EBU-R103 modes of operation.
The Eyeheight CorrectLoudWidget is a loudness analysis and correction plugin. Target and true peak values can be changed as appropriate for your chosen platform. Both plugins will be available soon via the Eyeheight website.   www.eyeheight.com

StudioLive AR USB mixers are equipped with a USB 2.0 audio interface that can capture all input channels, plus the main mix at 24 bit 96kHz. PreSonus’ Capture live-recording software and Studio One 3 Artist software are both are included free. An onboard stereo SD recorder lets you record the main mix without a computer also. All models are intended to be available in the third quarter of 2016, with expected prices of $599.95 (AR16), $499.95 (AR12) and $299.95 (AR8).

PreSonus has also released two new models in the RM Active Integration live mixer range. The RML16AI and RML32AI rack-mount mixers provide similar functionality to their predecessors, yet each offer eight of their inputs as TRS combo locking sockets allowing line inputs via 1/4” TRS. The 16 and 32 channel versions retail at $1119.95 and $1799.95 respectively.  www.presonus.com

NTP has released new option cards, new firmware and control software for DAD converters. The AX32 firmware version 2.0 increases the matrix capacity to 1,500 x1,500 non-blocking cross points for routing and splitting any input to outputs signals and all input and output channels have independent level control and audio metering.

There are two new I/O option cards for the AX32, a dual MADI I/O module and an eight-line AES3 (AES/EBU) I/O module with optional sample rate conversion. ‘With the addition of the new cards, the AX32 is now one of the most versatile platforms for audio postproduction on the market,’ comments NTP Technology Business Development Manager Jan Lykke. ‘It is ideal for processing stereo, surround-sound or 3D formats like Dolby Atmos. The AX32’s internal processing engine is now capable of providing PPM-style audio level information and level control for all 1,500 input and outputs.
DADman 5.0 is a redesigned software with an updated GUI supporting the features of the new platform, showing signal level meters on all analogue and digital inputs and outputs. The connection matrix has been made larger for better overview. Pro Mon and the new Cue Mix functionality can be operated from DADman 5.0 in parallel with Eucon enabled control surfaces. www.digitalaudio.dk
