RME Babyface Portable Interface
Sporting an incredible amount of features in a small package, the bus-powered RME Babyface ($750) features 192kHz AD/DA converters, two phantom-powered preamps, 10 inputs, 12 outputs and onboard processing. The Babyface has an RME optimized USB 2 high-speed bus (Mac/PC) that uses RME’s SteadyClock to ensure reference-quality conversion. The optical I/O is usable as ADAT with SMUX support or S/PDIF. The headphone output is driven from an extra D/A converter available on the unit or breakout cable. Other features include a DI input, TotalMix DSP mixing software and FPGA-based three-band parametric equalizer, reverb and echo.

Audix TM1 Measurement Microphone
Designed to capture acoustic measurements for room analysis software, RTAs and other sound control devices, the Audix TM1 ($299 MSRP) has a uniform Omnidirectional pattern and a flat 20 to 20k Hz frequency response. This 6mm capsule condenser mic features a nickel-plated brass body, shock absorbent “O” rings and snap-to-fit mic clip. Options include an acoustic foam screw-on windscreen and shock-mount adapter.

Blue Sky EXO 2 2.1 Monitor System
Evolving from Blue Sky’s EXO stereo monitoring system, the $499 EXO 2 package comprises a powered 110-watt subwoofer, two 35W satellites and a controller. Like the original, the EXO2 combines true full-range monitoring with the convenience of a desktop remote control hub. However, so that the subwoofer can more easily integrate into smaller spaces, the EXO sub has been greatly reduced in size (10x9x11 inches). Each 3-pound (7.2x4.8x5-inch) satellite features a 3-inch cast-frame woofer, neodymium motor structure and a 1-inch fabric-dome neodymium tweeter.

Audio Precision APX515 Audio Analyzer
AP has released its latest and most affordable audio analyzer: the APx515 ($6,200). The unit features two-in/two-out operation at up to 192 kHz, an intuitive GUI with one-click measurements, control via a footswitch or barcode scanner and the ability to create custom reports using MS Word and the APx UI. The APx515 promises tests within three seconds and offers three options including SW-HST, which adds high-speed multi-tone and continuous sweep measurements; SW-AML, which adds IMD, MOL, dynamic range and FFTs; and SW-ACR, which adds acoustic response measurements.
