beyerdynamic Tour Gear
beyerdynamic’s new Tour Gear mic line includes 25 different models for live performance, divided into four categories: the entry-level TG 30 series, TG 50 (vocals, instruments, drums, headsets, lavalier), next level up TG 70 and the top-class TG 90 (TGV90r ribbon, TG V96c true condenser). Each mic features Sound Channeling Technology, in which the company’s acoustic experts have created acoustic labyrinths with special geometries that provide optimized sound channeling. They influence the sound and model the polar pattern by using precisely tuned delay lines and attenuation pads.

Renkus-Heinz IC2
The IC2 (IC Squared) from Renkus-Heinz is a high-powered, medium-format digitally steerable loudspeaker system designed for theater and club installations. Features include integrated digital beam steering with high-power output, built-in amplification and RHAON network control. Four 8-inch low-frequency Neodymium transducers and 1-inch Titanium Nitride–coated HF drivers offer high SPL point-source performance while providing individual steering control of each driver. Each IC2 two-way 8-inch module delivers articulate musicality and powerful punch, and can be used stand-alone, as a small groundstack or as a flown array of up to 20 cabinets.

Soundcraft VM2
Engineers can now monitor the status of any Harman HiQnet-compatible AKG radio mic directly from the Soundcraft Vi Series console surface, courtesy of VM2 (Vistonics Microphone Monitoring). VM2 provides real-time visual displays of battery life, RF status, mic muting and internal clipping directly on a channel strip on the Vistonics™ screen. Users simply plug in the mics, patch them to the related console channels, and that’s it. Users can identify the relevant mic receiver in the rack by pressing the Locate button, causing the receiver front panel display to flash. VM2 will be available for all Soundcraft Vi Series consoles in Version 4.5 software, including Vi1, Vi2, Vi4 and Vi6. Compatible AKG wireless mic systems are WMS 4000, WMS 4500 and DMS 700 (optional HUB 4000Q HiQnet Ethernet interface required).

Users can process up to 16 live audio channels using up to 40 plug-ins in real time with super-low latency; record MultiRack-processed tracks in real time direct to a DAW in the same computer, pre- or post-processing (or both, for maximum flexibility); and adjust their plug-ins,
