Dangerous Music Liaison
Dangerous Music is now shipping the Liaison ($2,399), a Mix Certified Hit from Winter NAMM 2011. The unit features six stereo-insert loops, assignable to two stereo buses; flexible and parallel processing; instant recall of any gear patched through the unit; and seamless integration with Dangerous Master. Scenarios include recall of gear chains for recording vocals and instruments, storage and recall of two custom-mix processing chains for mixing, and switching of processors in any order for mastering.

Antares Auto-Tune EFX 2
Antares Auto-Tune EFX 2 ($129) is the newest generation of the popular tool for real-time pitch correction and the iconic Auto-Tune Vocal Effect. Features include Auto-Motion™ Vocal Pattern Generation, allowing users to add a variety of intricate musical patterns to their tracks for an entirely new (and sonically dramatic) vocal effect. Designed to make almost everything automatic, Auto-Tune EFX 2 provides two different flavors of the Auto-Tune Vocal Effect, as well as Antares’ real-time pitch correction. For songs with complex chord progressions or modulations, users can optionally set up custom scales or use their host’s automation facility to allow the processing of virtually any vocal line. Auto-Tune EFX 2 is available now for RTAS (Mac OS X and PC), VST (Mac OS X and PC) and AU (Mac OS X).

ADAM A77X Monitors
The A77X monitor ($1,399 each) from ADAM features the company’s X-ART tweeter, new woofers and amplifiers, and completely redesigned speaker cabinets. The new A77X is equipped with the same advanced technologies as its popular counterpart, the A7X, but produces much higher, compression-free maximum SPLs and dynamics. Due to its power and radiation characteristics, it is ideally suited for near- and mid-field monitoring. The A77X’s two 7-inch woofers feature 1.5-inch large voice coils and powerful 100W PWM amplifiers. Both are capable of deep lower-register reproduction. The woofers cover different frequency bands: One handles the (sub) bass frequencies to approximately 400 Hz, while the other reproduces most of the midrange, eliminating interference between the two drivers.

Waves Bass Rider
A companion to Waves’ Vocal Rider plug-in, Bass Rider (Native, $200; TDM, $300) delivers perfect bass levels without changing the natural sound of a user’s bass. Optimized for the frequency range and envelope characteristics of bass instruments, Bass Rider features operation up to 24-bit 192kHz; support for TDM, RTAS, Audio Suite, VST and AU; and target energy meter and a target slider for setting the desired bass-level range and calibrating the Rider Fader “0” position. Other features include sensitivity control, artifact-tolerance control, maximum and minimum range, and output trim.
