Steinberg/RND Portico 5033, 5043 Plug-Ins
Steinberg has released the RND (Rupert Neve Designs) Portico 5033 and RND Portico 5043 ($799, bundle), two signal-processor plug-ins reflecting the close cooperation between Rupert Neve, Yamaha and Steinberg. The RND Portico 5033 is a 5-band equalizer with three fully parametric filters and one band each of high- and low-shelving filters. The RND Portico 5043 plug-in is a high-end compressor featuring two entirely different characteristics: feed-forward and feed-back. By incorporating the punch, warmth and clarity of its hardware counterpart, this plug-in promises uncompromising compression quality for various applications. RND Portico 5033, RND Portico 5043 and the 5033/5043 bundle are available as a boxed version from authorized Steinberg resellers or as boxed and download version from the Steinberg Online Shop.

sE RN17 SP Microphones
sE Electronics has released another mic in collaboration with Rupert Neve. The SE RN17 SP ($3,149) comes as a stereo pair and features the world’s smallest gold-sputtered capsule coupled to the world’s largest transformer. It promises extended high frequencies, incredible dynamic range, and a massive, rich and warm low end. The RN17 SP ships with factory-matched cardioid capsules in a beautiful custom wooden box and includes two custom sE shockmounts and a stereo mounting bar—all in a striking, rugged flight case.

Shure SRH940 Headphones
The Shure SRH940 ($375) professional reference headphones promise to be your headworn everything with accurate frequency response, tight bass and smooth high-end extension with minimal distortion. Their collapsible, lightweight design sports a premium padded headband for superior comfort and portability. Accessories include a threaded, ¼-inch gold-plated adapter, two detachable cables (straight and coiled), a replacement set of velour ear pads, and a zippered, hard travel case.

Propellerhead Balance Audio Interface
Propellerhead Software has released its first hardware interface, Balance ($499). The slick-looking, 2-in/2-out desktop I/O box is integrated with Reason Essentials Software and is compatible with Mac and Windows. Fully USB 2–powered with separate volume controls for monitors and headphones, Balance contains eight input connections to keep all instruments, mics and devices connected and ready to record with the press of a button—without software pop-ups or control panels. Hardware buttons on Balance bring up a large meter/tuner in Reason and also can enable “Clip Safe,” Propellerhead’s new recording technology that with one click heals clipped recorded audio.
