Solid State Logic C100 HDS Version 2 Console
Unveiled at last month’s NAB show, the C100 HDS V. 2 is SSL’s newest broadcast console upgrade, with a new processor option for the Blackrock processing unit and Blacklight, the company’s new optical I/O format. The new higher-capacity CPU card greatly expands processing power to cover full DSP options to the increased number of regular channels available. The new interface delivers four times the channel count of MADI on a single connection, employing the same easy and familiar LC optical connector. A fully configured C100 HDS with the V. 2 upgrade (priced per configuration) is capable of delivering up to 512 sources to the mix bus.

Milab DC-96C Microphone
The DC-96C ($TBA) side-address, large rectangular-capsule mic from Milab is designed for both live and studio use. An upgrade of the DC-96 series that was originally released in 1967, the cardioid-only “C” features the capsule from the DC-196 and has a single-layer mesh grid. The transformerless design takes up to 144dB SPL, offers a switchable 12dB pad, and ships with a windscreen, stand adapter and lifetime warranty.

ADAM AX Series
These four new AX Series monitors from ADAM boast redesigned cabinets, new woofers and amps, plus the company’s X-ART ribbon tweeter. The line ranges from the ultracompact A3X (4.5-inch LF driver, 25W x2) to the high-performance A5X (5.5-inch midrange/woofer, 50W x2), A7X (7-inch midrange/woofer, 50W/100W) and A8X systems (8.5-inch midrange/woofer, 50W/150W). AX Series woofers feature larger voice-coils and more power for greater linear excursion and higher output. All models have beveled upper corners to minimize reflections and front porting. Retail prices for each speaker are A3x, $299; A5x, $449; A7x, $599; and A8x, $899.

LiquidSonics Reverberate
Reverberate ($50) from LiquidSonics is a convolution audio processor offering true zero-latency operation for two separate impulse responses. It promises a more dynamic-sounding reverb by optionally modulating an amalgamation of two separately controllable, true-stereo IRs using an LFO. Impulse responses can be edited using ADSHR curves, pre-delay, cropping and re-sampling for precise envelope and length control. An integrated sample browser provides a rapid means of auditioning existing IR libraries, and the internal preset management helps to navigate the 48 supplied presets quickly. Reverberate is available for AU on Mac and VST on Mac and PC.
