Rascal Audio Analogue ToneBuss
The Analogue ToneBuss (price TBA) from Rascal Audio uses all-discrete, Class-A circuitry (no ICs) with custom-wound I/O transformers. Front panel controls include pan switches for channels 1 to 4 and switchable direct throughputs for channels 5 and 6. These give users without a patchbay the ability to hardwire their favorite outboard processors to their D/A outputs. When editing, simply switch to the DIR position, process and re-record the audio, and then switch back to L/R when it’s time for mixdown. Other features include balanced in/outs on DB-25 connectors, and main and monitor L/R outputs. VB Amp Enclosure
The VB Amp Enclosure™ lets users record amplified instruments without sacrificing volume. Each enclosure has a convoluted foam interior, heavy fabric exterior, cable porting and the VB Iso Pad. VB Amp Enclosures are available in four sizes in two different series. The VB Amp Box™ includes ventilation and is recommended for combo amps. The VB Speaker Box™ does not include ventilation and is recommended for speaker cabinets only. Prices start at $995.

NTP Technology DAD AX24 192 PHD Interface
NTP Technology’s DAD AX24 192 PHD (price TBA) is a new version of the AX24 8-channel, high-end AD/DA audio converter that comes complete with an interface card connecting it directly to Avid’s Pro Tools. The AX24 192 PHD supports sampling rates from 44.1 up to 192 kHz, and offers an optional high-quality mic preamp. The unit can be configured with eight analog inputs or eight analog outs, or both. It is operated via the DADman control application, which is capable of handling 128 channels and can be automated from Pro Tools (emulating the Avid Pro Tools PRE) or via EuCon for operation from Euphonix’s MC-Pro and 5-MC hardware controllers.
