Following the successful launch of its Onyx-i mixer series, Mackie now expands its Onyx Series with the Onyx Blackjack and Onyx Blackbird recording interfaces. Onyx Blackjack is a desktop 2x2 24-bit/48kHz unit with USB output. I was more interested in the single-rackspace Onyx Blackbird, a 16x16 24-bit/96kHz unit with eight Onyx mic preamps...

Cloud JRS-34 Active Ribbon Microphone Review

Dec 1, 2010, By Kevin Becka

About a year ago, a new microphone company based in Tucson, Ariz., released its first product: the Cloud JRS-34 ribbon. The mic is made entirely in the United States and owes its engine to Stephen Sank, the son of Jon R. Sank, who designed ribbon mics for RCA from the late 1950s to the early ’70s. The JRS-34 features the same ribbon used to refurbish countless RCA 44s, and promises high-quality, smooth performance. The mic is also available in a passive version for $300 less. ...

Oct 25, 2010, By Brandon Hickey

Steinberg Nuendo 5 DAW Software Review

Oct 25, 2010, By Chuck Ainlay

I started using Nuendo about 11 years ago, back when state-of-the-art, tape-based digital recording systems like Sony’s PCM-3348 seemingly became obsolete overnight. You had a choice: Use Pro Tools, or die the slow, painful death of becoming an irrelevant recording engineer. ...
