Prodigy Engineering Anima 8-channel remote control preamp

Prodigy Engineering Remote Control Preamps
Prodigy Engineering specializes in high-performance analog products with digital control, including its Anima 8-channel remote control preamp, which integrates with DAWs such as Logic, Pro Tools and control surfaces like ICON. Taking control to the next step, its Bella is a single-channel mic pre in the popular API 500-series module format, but with a front panel USB port for remote DAW control and internal jumpers for cascading control data when using multiple units. Watch the Prodigy Engineering Remote Control Preamps video.

QSC K-Series Speakers
The K Series of lightweight, high-performance powered loudspeakers from QSC feature molded ABS enclosures, 1,000 watts of onboard amplification and 1.75-inch HF devices. The line comprises the K8, K10, and K12 2-way cabinets and the KSub dual-12 subwoofer to extend LF performance to 44 Hz. QSC's proprietary DSP Digital Extension and Excursion Processing (DEEP) actively manages transients for extended LF response.

Sony PCD-M10 Recorder
The Sony PCM-M10 palm-sized compact recorder has electret condenser stereo mics, 96kHz/24-bit capability and is bundled with Sound Forge software. Watch the Sony PCD-M10 video.

Solid State Logic X-Patch
The X-Patch software-controlled routing system from Solid State Logic brings the flexibility of plug-in style routing to boutique analog processing. X-Patch lets you build analog processing into your favorite processing chains and then easily place it into signal paths—for example, favorite mic pre, EQ and dynamics processors can be recalled as the perfect vocal chain at a single stroke. For more, watch the SSL X-Patch video.

Synthogy Ivory II Piano
The latest version of Synthogy's flagship software, Ivory II is easily the most realistic sampled piano we’ve ever heard. Ever since Kurzweil released the K250, authentic-sounding sympathetic resonance has been the holy grail of digital-piano designers, and the folks at Synthogy have finally hit the mark, doubling the realism of an already fine virtual instrument in the process.
