Mac Compatibility for Yamaha Consoles
New versions of Yamaha’s M7CLv3 Editor and LS9 Editor software allow its M7CLv3 and LS9 consoles to talk directly to Macs. The M7CLv3 Editor and LS9 Editor for Mac run under the Studio Manager V2 host, providing the same features and operating environment as the Windows version. For the M7CL, advanced features such as Sends on Fader operation via the M7CLv3 Editor will now be available via the Mac platform. The new software will be available for download this month.

Switchcraft SC900 Direct Box
Switchcraft takes the direct box to the next level, thanks to a patent-pending feature that automatically activates the unit’s ground-lift switch when 48-volt phantom power is applied, effectively creating a remote-controllable ground lift. There’s also a manual switch for selecting (or defeating) ground lift. The unit will be available in two forms: the deluxe $239 SC900 (with a Jensen transformer) and as the standard $169 SC900CT (non-Jensen) model.

Line 6 XD-V70 Digital Wireless
Operating in the 2.4GHz band, the new XD-V70 (cardioid handheld) and XD-V30L (beltpack) digital wireless feature DCL™ (Digital Channel Lock) and PDP™ (Proprietary Data Placement) technologies for reliable, encoded operation in hostile RF environments. Both units offer onboard digital mic modeling, 12-channel operation, 10-20k Hz RF response, max 300-foot range, 120dB dynamic range and 24-bit digital conversion. Retail: $499.
