New from Electro-Voice ( is the RE410, a handheld condenser mic for lead vocal applications. The RE410 has a uniform cardioid pickup pattern for feedback rejection and isolation from loud onstage sources; specs include a 50-20k Hz response and 140dB maximum SPL handling. A multistage pop filter reduces plosives and breath noise, while a Memraflex hardened steel grille offers protection, and a Warm-Grip handle provides a comfortable feel and isolates handling noise.

QSC ( expands its series of bi/tri-ampable screen channel loudspeakers to a total of nine units, ranging from the compact SC-413 to the flagship SC-443, with its 4×15 bottom end and proprietary MH-1075 mid-high section. All mid-high sections feature a horn-loaded midrange topped by a titanium-diaphragm compression driver coupled with an adjustable pan-and-tilt bracket. With nominal coverage rated at 90° horizontal (+20°/-30°) in the vertical plane, each is outfitted with its own driver-protection network and a passive crossover for bi-amp use, and also facilitates high-frequency crossover points of up to 1,800 Hz to ensure that most dialog is reproduced by a single element for added intelligibility. LF in the three new units uses QSC's Close-Coupled Woofer (CCW) technology, which keeps coverage angles considerably wider over a greater frequency range than traditional devices employing widely spaced woofers.

STARDRAW CONTROL BETA DOWNLOAD is now offering live sound and systems pros a free beta version of its Stardraw Control application.

Unveiled at Winter NAMM, Peavey ( debuted six newly redesigned CS Series power amps: the CS 1400, CS 2000, CS 3000, CS 4000 and CS 4080 HZ (all dual-channel), plus the 4-channel CS 800×4. Building on the reputation of Peavey's renowned CS 800, the new series features DDT® compression/anti-clipping protection, two-rackspace designs and up to 4,080 watts. Protection circuits guard against shorts, improper loads, abrupt turn-on levels, high temperatures, DC and subsonic frequencies. Also standard are active temperature-controlled fans, XLR/¼-inch Combo inputs, binding post and Speakon outputs, and a five-year warranty.

The AQ Series from Martin Audio ( comprises six full-range enclosures ranging from the ultra-compact dual 5-inch ICT AQ5 to the high-power AQ15 (400W. 15-inch woofer/high-efficiency HF compression driver). AQ Series products may be used individually, in multiples or distributed, depending on the application. The line is complemented by four subwoofers from a compact single-12 to the high-power, dual-15 AQ215. An AQX controller provides user-selectable active crossover, limiter and trim functions from a single-rackspace chassis.
