SPL RackPack 4, De-Esser
Sound Performance Lab has released a new four-module rack system and a dual-band de-esser module. RackPack 4 (pictured) is a compact and portable frame that loads and powers up to four SPL RackPack modules. The unit features sturdy rubber feet and a handle for tabletop use or it can be mounted in a 19-inch rackspace. The new Dual-Band De-Esser module reduces sibilance through sophisticated phase cancellation rather than compression. Its two independent stages target low and high bands, and also automatically adjust input signals so processing is uniform regardless of the distance between source and microphone (Prices TBA).

Sonifex RB-DD4 Digital Audio Delay
The RB-DD4 ($1,897) from Sonifex lets users delay four mono channels of audio independently or together. Each channel delay is user-selectable from multiples of common video frame rates or a user-defined value set via the serial interface. The unit is perfect for synchronizing audio to video that’s been delayed by processing latency.

Lawo Version 4.8 Software
A new interface for its mc2 Series and the Nova73 HD systems, the Lawo ( Version 4.8 software (available as a free upgrade) allows for even faster and more flexible workflow. Features include a new channel display, offering additional color and textural information for the VCA and Link displays. Users can also interconnect any number of channels via link groups that are linkable with different modules, such as fader, mute or EQ. A color and name can then be assigned to each group for easy and quick visual referencing. In addition, temporary links of multiple channels can be created using the Couple function, allowing for the quick adjustment of all of the grouped channels’ parameters.

Audio Precision APx Upgrade
Audio Precision upgrades the capabilities of its APx Series audio analyzer with the BW52 ultrahigh-bandwidth 1MHz FFT option and new Version 2.5 software. The BW52 ($2,500; or as part of the Analog Performance bundle, $3,000) delivers testing bandwidth from DC to 1 MHz at 24-bit resolution when measuring out-of-band noise in Class-D amps, sigma-delta converters and other audio devices. The APx update adds custom reporting options for automatic direct export of APx test and measurement data into customizable Word documents; the ability to stream Dolby TrueHD lossless audio compression format through the APx HDMI option; and WAV file analysis for testing a digital recorder/PC soundcard.
