At the 2010 NAMM Show, Juergen Michaelis demonstrates his new Jomox MBrane II modeling synthesizer.
The MBrane II is a small analog synth optimized for percussive snare drum and cowbell-like sounds, with a wide range of sound characteristics. Jomox’s new design makes it possible to produce authentic membrane-like sounds from 2 analog T-Bridge oscillators, by means of coupling and dampening. A versatile noise generator with white noise, metal noise and envelope control lets you create snare drum, rim shot, cow bell and bongo sounds.
At the 2010 NAMM Show, Behringer introduced an updated line of Xenyx Mixers that feature internal USB audio interfaces and 24-bit multi-FX processors.
Sporting a wide range of options, the next-generation XENYX live/studio mixers from Behringer merge built-in USB interface, “one-knob” compressors and XENYX mic preamps and “British-style” channel EQ.
The mixers feature a new digital effects processor with 16 editable presets including reverb, chorus, flanger, delay, pitch shifter and multi-effects (no FX on 1204USB). All models are phantom power-equipped and include a software package that features energyXT2.5 Compact Behringer Edition music production software.
All the Xenx mixers ship with rack-mount brackets.
Waldorf is showing the Zarenbourg electric piano styled keyboard instrument.
According to Waldorf, the Zarenbourg is for “keyboardists who want to spank the plank”.
The Waldorf Zarenbourg offers realistic emulations of five classic electric pianos, including effects. It features 76 real wood keys, as well as a high-end speaker system.
Zarenbourg Orange PhotoNothing that came before rivals its look, touch and feel. Its clearly arrayed, easily understood control panel sports classic knobs and indicator selector switches. And the top of its housing offers plenty of room for a full-grown synthesizer. A real player’s instrument, indeed.
An instrument that delivers to-die-for authenticity, Zarenbourg is a love-at-first-try proposition. And you can personalize this object of your affection by ordering the upper body panel in a color that strikes your fancy**.
Zarenbourg Union Jack PhotoAn External In accepts the input of stereo signals for Zarenbourg’s internal speaker system. Ideal to connect a notebook to the Zarenbourg to create a tiny home studio, which even looks great in a living room.
This high-end EMES studio monitor system with two broadband loudspeakers and a subwoofer is tuned specifically to the Zarenbourg — no compromises made.
