Bettermaker EQ 232P
TransAudio Group is shipping the Bettermaker EQ 232P, a flexible 2-channel analog equalizer that updates a classic design and adds the digital accuracy, repeatability and consistency of a plug-in. The unit can be bought with full controls ($4,950) or with a blank front panel for exclusive DAW control ($4,250). The EQ 232P offers a 12dB/octave highpass filter covering the range 18 to 200 Hz, two active parametric filters from 45 to 1k Hz and 650 to 15k Hz, plus a PEQ section featuring high- and low-frequency shelving passive filters, each with separate boost and cut. Settings may be saved in up to 399 presets in the unit’s internal memory, and may additionally be fully automated, and all settings saved with the DAW project using the supplied software plug-in.

SoundToys Radiator Plug-In
SoundToys’ Radiator software plug-in ($129) models the Altec 1567A tube mixer from the 1960s. Features include bass and treble tone controls, a mix control for easy parallel processing, and the saturation and harmonic effects of the original hardware’s input and output amplifiers. Radiator also includes Little Radiator, a simpler single-stage tube preamp model based on the Altec 1566A hardware, the little brother of the Altec 1567A.

Magma PE3R 3-Slot PCI Chassis
The latest expander from Magma goes old school, allowing legacy PCI cards (Pro Tools|HD, UAD-1, TC Powercore, Lynx Studio, MOTU, RME, Apogee, etc.) to be used in a tower or laptop ($1,499). The chassis attaches to a PCI or PCIe slot (a host card is included), and requires no software for installation. Laptop users can also take advantage of the PE3R’s capabilities by using it with a PCMCIA or ExpressCard connection. All cards installed in expansion chassis are transparently available to the host system and operate at 64-bit PCI speed.
