CAD 10th-Anniversary GLX Mics
To commemorate one of its most popular and best-selling lines, CAD Audio introduces the new 10th-anniversary GXL Black Pearl Mics and Studio Packs. Compact and road-rugged, the GXL1200BP ($79.99) condenser features a transformerless design and a fixed cardioid pattern. The GXL1200BP’s small size, accuracy and high-SPL capability make it ideal for miking overheads, hi-hats, cymbals and stringed instruments. The GXL2200BP ($99.99) is a large-diaphragm condenser microphone that features a 1-inch gold vapor–deposited diaphragm promising exceptional sensitivity and low distortion. The GXL3000BP ($139.99) features a precision-engineered, 1-inch gold vapor–deposited multipattern (cardioid, omni, figure-8) dual-diaphragm capsule. All the mics come in a black-pearl chrome finish and include a shockmount or mic clip, vinyl pouch and polishing cloth.

DNR Collaborative Designs MixControl Pro
MixControl Pro ($129) is a successor to DNR’s flagship mixing plug-in package, offering a complete high-quality, professional channel strip featuring flexible module processing and pristine audio quality. New features and improvements include high-quality oversampling, two new professional UI layouts, three unique analog-style saturation modes and a much more responsive FFT analyzer. Other features include solo for individual EQ bands, three new saturation modes, gate wet/dry-mixing function and full V1 backward-compatibility. MixControl Pro is available for purchase from DNR’s Webshop.

Merging Technologies Ovation
Ovation ($1,120 to $6,960) from Merging Technologies is a media server and sequencer that provides a new and robust platform for use in any live, fixed install, or TV and radio production. It combines the power of MassCore DSP, virtually limitless I/O and busing, full VST support and complete integration with the Pyramix Virtual Studio editing system. Ovation can be operated as a media sequencer by using its own Show Controller Engine through a powerful, intuitive and fully customizable user interface specially designed to be accessible from any touchscreen or tactile devices, or simply as a pure, “Black-Box”-like, Media Server, transparently remote controlled by all of the most popular protocols.

Electronaut M63 Preamp
The M63 ($3,495) 2-channel microphone/instrument amplifier from Electronaut features Lundahl amorphous-core transformers; 63 dB of gain; slow-start tube-rectified high-voltage power supply; and phantom power with ramped start/stop action. Other features include two level controls per channel, Sifam VU meters, switchable 20dB pad, small-signal relays with gold-plated contacts, new-production Daka-Ware knobs and an optional custom case.
