Audio-Technica AT2021 Condenser Mic
The new AT2021 condenser microphone from Audio-Technica is designed for both live and studio applications, and offers a wide frequency response of 30-20k Hz as well as the ability to handle high SPLs (145dB max). Its compact 4-inch body is ideal for tight placements. The AT2021 requires 48VDC phantom power, features a cardioid pickup pattern and has a low-mass diaphragm for fast transient response on piano, drum overheads or acoustic instruments. MSRP is $139, including stand clamp and carry pouch.

Adamson Eklipsa
Shipping at the end of the month, the Eklipsa array is available in two-way, 12- and 15-inch bi-amped versions that pair a neodymium woofer with a 4-inch diaphragm neodymium compression driver. Offering 18x60-degree (VxH) dispersion, Eklipsa is intended for horizontal arrays, but multiple cabs can be vertically arrayed using additional hardware. The 11-ply Baltic birch trapezoidal enclosures are finished in textured acrylic and have a 14-gauge rolled steel grille.

DiGiCo/Waves SoundGrid
Waves’ SoundGrid is offered as a new option for DiGiCo SD7/SD8/SD9 consoles, integrating Waves plug-ins directly into the mixer via a simple Ethernet Stealth-Waves link to a rackmounted external PC, that has plug-in parameters available on the console’s touchscreen. Session settings can be transferred to another SD7/SD8/SD9, or users can save the console settings and Waves tweaks onto a memory stick. And combining the board’s powerful FPGA processing with Waves’ MultiRack keeps plug-in latency low.
