Waves REDD Console Plug-Ins
The REDD console plug-ins from Waves model the custom-designed consoles built by and named after Abbey Road Studios’ in-house Record Engineering Development Department. Waves meticulously re-created the unique color, character and tonal complexity of the original desks: the REDD.17 still belonging to Abbey Road Studios, and the REDD.37 console now owned by Lenny Kravitz. Controls include amp selectors, bass lift, classic and pop EQ types, high and low tone controls, stereo spread, drive and more. Both REDD.17 and REDD.37-.51 are Native- and SoundGrid-compatible and are available at an MSRP of $349.

Neumann KH310 A Monitors
The new KH 310 A monitor from Neumann ($TBA) features newly developed drivers including an 8-inch woofer, 3-inch soft-dome midrange; and an alloy-fabric dome 1-inch tweeter. Three Class-A/B amplifiers (150W, 70W, 70W) provide power.

Argosy Spire Speaker Stands
Argosy Console has released the IsoAcoustic-enhanced Spire Speaker Stands, which provide an attractive and stable solution for studio monitor isolation. Two models are offered in the line: the Spire 420i ($399), with a height of 42 inches, and the Spire 360i ($379) measuring 36 inches. Features include 5x 4-inch powder-coated substrate for stability and resilience, die-cut side panels, and beveled edges. Argosy’s new stands feature integrated IsoAcoustics-patented technology, designed to keep all movement on-axis to move in the direction of the speaker cones’ travel, while resisting movement in other directions. The result is tightening of the low end as well as improved stereo imaging.
