AES gear that will be in the studio next year!!!

I was checking out the Mix 2002 AES new products guide. I saw three things that will be in my place next year:

1)Princeton Digital Reverb 2016- My Eventide SP2016 died this year

Now I found a replacement and it has digital ins and outs. One of my favorite vocal verbs.


2)Pro Tools 6- Blah, blah, blah.


3)Eventide Retro Algorithm cards for my DSP7000


Wish list: Lexicon 960LS(stereo version of 960L) maybe half the price?

Protools...seems like an update that I'm not in a hurry fordfegad
But the lexi 960 stereo... are they gonna do that? Do you like the lexi better than the tc6000? Out of my league for now but soon

Yeah Lexicon is doing a stereo version of the 960L. I liked the reverb better than on the M6000, but TC is coming out with their TC Reverb 6000 algorithms for the M6000. I am sure that will make it even better. I forgot to add the Cranesong Ibis Eq. I know Brad Blackwood has talked it up for the longest, so it must be the bees knees. Hey Brad is there a price on this thing yet? Are we talking high $3000's or (gulp) high $4000's?

Universal Audio Debuts 6176 Channel Strip

Combines the 2-610 Microphone preamp and 1176 compressor

October 6, 2002

Universal Audio, manufacturer vintage audio reproductions and DSP powered plug-ins debuted their new 6176 channel strip to attendees of the Audio Engineering Society Convention in Los Angeles. The 6176 combines Universal Audio's two most successful products-the 2-610 microphone/instrument preamplifier and the 1176LN compressor-into a single "channel strip" product.

The 6176 features several improvements over the standalone 2-610 mic preamp and 1176LN compressor. "While we're known primarily for painstaking reproductions of vintage gear," said Universal Audio Chief Analog Designer, John Hinson, "with the 6176 we allowed ourselves to add new features and take advantage of components with superior specs over the originals. For example, the mic preamp now features a 15db pad and a beefed-up power supply that tightens up the bass. The compressor section still has the twenty micro-second attack time and program dependency of the original 1176, but it is much quieter. Vintage character with modern specs is what we were going for and I think we've hit it. It's the best of both worlds."

The 6176, a single, horizontal rackmount unit, has a suggested US retail price of $2,495 and will begin shipping in the fourth quarter of 2002.
:wave:
Peace.

AES must haves....

#1 AEA (Wes Dooley) 84 ribbon mic - A $900 (!!!) cross between a 77 and a 44 for less than half the price of the new 78 (77 type mic). I went looking for the new 78 but the 84 is just too good of a deal to pass up.

#2 the new Brauner Phantom - a non-tube Brauner built to Brauner quality standards for only just over $1k ($1200???) including a nice aluminum case.

#3 the new Telefunken of North America mics certainly look damn nice, and the 47 "Cinemic" is a novel twist on the usual offerings.

#4 the new API line level input stage ($1995) allows you to use all of your outboard gear with the 7800 master strip

#5 the new Speck mic preamp ($800) with pan-able dual outputs is a LONG overdue feature on mic preamps.

No more food or other non-essentials, all money must go towards gear.

What's the deal with these? Is PT 6 an upgrade to a Mix+ system or for HD?

We are seriously considering this baby instead of a GML EQ for our ultra top shelf EQ...

The price so i read is being touted as $4500(introductory price) so who knows what it will end up as.. hope it does not go the way of the Manley SLAM!!!!!!!

But by the the time it gets out to Australia it will be a 1/3 of annual wage like the STC8grudge so who knows... maybe we'll just hot rod some alesis and Behringer gear and put them on 80 volt rails and see them fry... it'll be great entertainment!

HAhahah

Pro Tools 6 is for both HD and Mixplus.

$4500 huh?

That sucks!!! Oh well, than that means I better start saving now. Wiggy I was thinking about using it as my mix buss EQ(right now my Massive occupies this position). If its $4500 non mastering, than the mastering version(detented pots) will be closer to $6000...

I think I am going to start looking at something else for this purpose. I've been digging the EAR 660 comp on vocals lately and I know they make an EQ so maybe I'll give that a whirl. The Fairman is too expensive right now.

Based on my day at the show..... Cranesong HEDD 192, Dangerous 2 bus LT, Daking Mic pre's x2 (and that groovy console that is going to Steve Albini)
API 3412+m , an Equitech power supply maybe one for the remote truck too.

Also got to finally hear the ADAM line from top to bottom....the s3a's are wonderful and the little guys (11's? ) were cool too. Maybe next year. Oh yeah PT 6 looks really nice, some cool file management stuff in the new rev.

and I'll need to get the skin replaced on my jaw after leering at the NEVE 88r.

other interesting things to note: fewer mullets than NAMM but still a good showing....

Alot of guys in the Audio world are really fat....and I'm on my way there dammit.

I noticed a few years ago that engineers tend to be either really fat or really skinny. I'm in the middle but leaning towards the fat side. Hopefully not for long though, I'm looking into joining a gym.

Guys, NAMM in Nashville is flat out awesome, from a people-watching perspective.

Words simply fail me. I can only imagine how many trailer parks, log cabins and moonshine factories emptied out as those folks headed for Nashville NAMM.

Imagine Joe Dirt, cloned on a massive scale. On the upside, generally good natured and friendly. On the downside, many unrecommended biological pairings involved in the family tree and a diet composed entirely of fried anmals.

maybe its because i am white trash from the south...but i think the LA namm is the best people watching. mullets, 80's spandex, fat ugly guys from KISS, escorts and fluffers all thrown together with guys ernestly selling marching band equipment....

but to stay on-topic, there was a really cool "more-me" personal monitor network system( the name escapes me). not available till jan'03 but a nice package consisting of a breakout box(analog and /or lightpipe in) sending out 8 channels to 4 powered headphone/mixing boxes for $1295 list( w/ all cables). pretty cool.

Looks like the $4500 will stick for now. BTW, that's retail - who pays retail?

Mastering version will prolly retail at $7k. Mastering versions are being built first (I get one ASAP!!!).

It already won a PAR2002 award at AES - everybody that came by and listened just sat there dumbfounded. This box is the new king...

Lexi vs TC6000

I compared these units for a long time before
going with the 6000. Fantastic reverb as well as other cool fx and they update constantly.
I also splurged for the Dangerous 2 Buss and their wonderful Dangerous Monitor module. Fantastic!
I have to buy this stuff when my daughter's still young and thinks everyone needs a scholership because their Dad has to buy new gear everyday.
cheers,
chap
