Roland AIRA Series - TR-8, TB-3, VT-3, and SYSTEM-1 Rhythm, Synth, and Vocal Effect Machines

Roland AIRA Series - TR-8, TB-3, VT-3, and SYSTEM-1 Rhythm, Synth, and Vocal Effect Machines | Sonic sense | Scoop.it
Roland has been teasing us with previews of what's to come in the next era of their synthesizers. Today Roland released four new powerful electronic instruments that brought back some classic instruments that shaped the sound of most of the popular music we hear today. The new AIRA series features a multitude of instruments from drum machines, bass synthesizers, vocal effects processors, and a lead synth. With the analog circuit behavior technology in each of these units, Roland created new, updated versions of classic instruments that model the actual analog circuitry from classic instruments such as the TR-303, the TR-808, and the TR-909. With the new AIRA TR-8 drum machine, TB-3 touch bassline synthesizer, the VT-3 Vocal Transformer, and the SYSTEM-1 lead Synthesizer. We were itching to start playing with these, and we are in the process of creating a video series outlining the sound and features of the new AIRA series. First off, check out our video featuring the Roland AIRA TB-3 with some cool vocoder effects from the AIRA VT-3.

MXL 550 / 551 Microphones In the Studio

MXL 550 / 551 Microphones In the Studio | Sonic sense | Scoop.it
Recording music may seem like a daunting, expensive field to break into.  As technology improves and becomes more affordable for us all, the days of needing a multi-million dollar studio just to record a demo are over.
David Tyson's insight:

Granted there are still those $10,000 microphones that we all dream about, but it is possible to purchase a product that won’t break the bank and still gives you the results you need for a fraction of the price.  When you think about “entry level products,” a lack of quality often comes along with that though.  MXL is one such company where a product with an entry-level price tag does not mean a lack of quality

New at NAMM 2014: Ultimate Acoustics with a new brand of studio foam

New at NAMM 2014: Ultimate Acoustics with a new brand of studio foam | Sonic sense | Scoop.it
Ultimate Acoustics dropped some knowledge on us and the rest of NAMM 2014 with the release of their newly designed studio foam packages.First of all, they taught us that the ever so popular wedge and pyramid shapes we commonly seem in studio foam panels are intended for ease of shipping more than for actual acoustic absorption as the foam material is so soft, that the wedges don't actually cause any sort of diffusion like one might suspect.  Their new foam has a flat front, making for more mass, and is said to be double as effective than the previous designs of foam.
