Mix technical editor Kevin Becka reports from the show floor in the Anaheim Convention Center, as Day 2 of the Winter NAMM 2014 unfolds:

Jonathan Little from LittleLabs had his new "Pepper" box on hand. It's a slick guitar recording and live sound tool that lets you insert pro processors and stomp boxes across the signal path, then precisely match the level for re-amping.

Tectonic Audio Labs showed its new Distributed Mode flat panel loudspeakers, which not only sip power, but are also lightweight and use a honeycombed surface covered in Kevlar as the transducer.

Peavey introduced the new PV Series mixing consoles that integrate blue tooth technology and AutoTune into powerful desktop and rack-mountable mixers. They also showed their RBN Sub and RBN 112 powered speaker enclosures.

API introduced the 505-DI Direct Input module and NAMM's first look at The Box console. The DI features Tone and Bright buttons and a 100k/400k variable input impedance switches.

Radial Engineering had their new Space Heater, an 8-channel tube drive and summing mixer. Features include a 12AX7 tube line amp with Eclipse transformers with a three position switch letting the user select the applied voltage on the tube for color.

Avid announced that AAX plugin third-party development for Pro Tools 11 was nearly complete and the approach of Avid Connect, the inaugural event for their Customer Association coming April 4-6 at the Bellagio in Las Vegas.
