Neumann microphones on exhibit at Musikmesse Prolight + Sound 2014

Musikmesse and Prolight + Sound 2014 once again offered a spectacular look at the technology and tools designed for today’s music, sound and media producers. This year the annual trade event was held March 12-15 in Frankfurt, Germany, and spanned nine massive exhibit halls covering everything to do with music and sound, all housed in one extraordinarily large complex known at the Frankfurt Messe Hall. More than 110,000 reported registrants were in attendance.

Here, in no particular order, are a few of the more impressive products shown for the first time at MusikMesse/Prolight + Sound.

Neumann’s recently announced TLM 107 multipattern microphone is shipping in April 2014 for around $1,500. The TLM 107 is a high-resolution sound transducer said to capture sound without adding coloration. It is offered in black or silver, with a sleek look as good as it sounds, and comes in a newly designed casing.

Montarbo's Virtual Mixing Technologies VMT real-time mixing and monitoring environment

Montarbo demonstrated the Virtual Mixing Technologies VMT, a real-time mixing and monitoring environment combined with 120-channel recording and editing based on the SAW DAW with currently up to 96x96 I/O channels. Targeting the live concert production and recording markets, Montarbo is producing a touchscreen-based mixing system, using Direct X VST plug-ins that will not allow the use of any latent plug-ins in the system, with sample accuracy on any route used.

Audient introduced its new ASP880 8-channel microphone preamplifier and ADC that includes variable impedance and variable highpass filters.
