Musik Messe 2012 Some "Messe"-Pics (500 series and other stuff)

Visited the Musikmesse in Frankfurt today.
Find some pictures attached.
500 Series overload this year...

- SM Pro Audio presented a mic pre and opto comp module called the "Tubebox".

- Golden Age Project with the 500 series version of the Pre-73 called Pre-573.

- The Lindell Audio stuff in the flesh (or "in the metal") was absolutely amazing. Absolute no-brainer!!! I will order 2 comps and 2 eqs as soon as they are available!!!

- Found a 500 series version of the Valley People Dynamite

- SPL presented their Analog Elemental Series. Thought they would make all modules of their modular series available in this format, but only any combination of Premium Preamp, Preference Preamp, Dual-Band De-Esser, TwinTube, Transient Designer and DynaMaxx are available.

- TK Audio presented a mastering EQ. Nice unit!!!

- EVE presented their new studio monitors. Great company! Great products! So great that someone actually stole 5 monitors on thursday... SH*T !!!


I also found a chinese manufacturer who was displaying non-branded mics, different outboard gear and 500 series modules. They were looking for companies to buy there products. Then of course rebranded and all that... They claimed to have 40 years of pro audio manufacturing experience. Well as far as I could tell, the stuff was Chameleon Labs, Golden Age Projects, Studio Projects ... Took a photo of the 500 series stuff. They actually offer a "581 Discrete Mic Pre", "TMP-1" (Tube Mic Pre), "1731 Discrete Mic Pre", "73C Vintage" AND a 500 series rack... Other units on the way. Name of the company "bcaSound - Beijing Century Audio". Interesting fact, you can order everything from them directly, if you buy at least 50 pieces. Then of course they are branded, painted, etc. exactly like you want them to be...
group buy anyone

So all in all a really interesting Musikmesse this year.

Well, great minds think alike

There was also other great stuff presented, so if anyone has the chance to go there on the last day... go for it! Hall 5.1 is the place to be!

Fab Dupont for example was presenting the new UA Apollo. Some live vocals and keyboard playing included! Also a great product!

Valley People, cool!

I don't get what SPL is doing. Why don't they release some proper 500 series modules?

They tried to go their own way... and maybe failed... What's holding me from buying their modular series is the fact, that the rack is too expensive!
But I don't know if it's technically possible to downsize their modules to the 500 format. They're almost twice as deep!

I don't know. If they manage to stick four transient designers in a rack surely they could manage a 500-series TD.

Gerne!

The Tubebox was packed into a lunchbox with an SM Pro Audio cover instead of the API one... funny. But they were not connected to an audio source. And it was not attached with screws. I pulled it out to have a look at the guts and nobody from SM Pro Audio was interested... Wouldn't surprise me if the unit was gone by saturday! I was a little bit disappointed because the "tube" inside looked actually more like an halogen-bulb... I wouldn't expect too much from the unit. After all SM Pro Audio is not known for high end outboard gear. Not even mid level i'd guess...

Why would you need a dual rack pack for that?!? Just buy the upcoming Dual Twintube of the Analog Elemental Series!!! It is an absolutely gorgeous piece of gear! I spent around 20 minutes with it on the Musikmesse and it is most likely that I will buy one.

I was checking out the smproaudio thing. 239 euroretail.

It feels like 20 euro. The tube curcuit is a joke.

Yeah, that's exactly what I thought when I pulled the module
out of the Lunchbox and had a look at the circuit.
Cheap china built modules with low quality components and
insufficient quality controls have finally arrived in the 500 series...

No idea... They were barely speaking any english, so it was hard to communicate. The rack was only available on paper, haven't seen it displayed. You could drop them an email?! Interesting feature is the power consumption meter, switchable to display all 10 different slots. You can't find this products at their website, maybe they are still searching for a company buying them...

Yes, that looks awesome! Thats what I'm getting!
Any idea of the price for a The analog elemental series dual Twintube?

Thanks again

Great pics!

I'm glad someone from GS stopped by the Lipinski Sound booth. Did you get a chance to see our new parametric EQ and API compatible power supply?

can't wait to hear and read about the Lindell products. Zen Audio has them in pre-order, but I want to know the ins&outs first.

So I got the scoop on the E1073. It's the MP73 that 797 audio sells.

I didn't get any other information from the manufacturer except that 797audio sells them for $600.

I also found this link...

Google Übersetzer

Price seems a bit high for such a unit. Since the Chameleon Labs is selling them for about the same.
