    Shure GLXD24/SM86 - WOW!

    by oldrags on 04-17-2014 05:08 PM <p><img src="http://img.audiofanzine.com/image.php?lang=en&amp;identifier=id&amp;size=thumb1&amp;module=product&amp;product_id=189822" alt="" title="Shure GLXD24/SM86 - WOW!" /></p>I could borrow this Shure GLXD24/SM86 (condenser, about US$ 650.-) along with a Sennheiser XSw 35 (dynamic, about US$450) for about a week and check them out. I thought it was going to be hard to decide between the two, but I was wrong. This wireless SM86 just blew my mind. SOUND The sound is just incredible. You get the definition of a good live condensor microphone (I personnally like and use the EV Cardinal). I tought that in a loud environment, the dynamic XSw might do just as well, but I was wrong. When rehearsing with our fusion band (www.soundcloud.com/soark), everyone found that at similar volumes, my voice could be heard clearly with the Shure, but not so much with the Sennheiser. The Shure makes me feel comfortable, because I know I can sing into it high or low, soft or yell all I've got and it will sound wonderful. This may be subjective, but singing the same loud song felt tiring with the Sennheiser and relaxing with the Shure. Wow... FEEDBACK RESISTANCE To my surprise, in our 3x4m rehearsal room, monitors cranked way up, the Shure didn't seem to generate more feedback problems than the Sennheiser. WIRELESS The digital wireless works great. There is no fuzz at all and I had to go outside the building (10m, one brick and one concrete walls in between) to get the sound to break down. You can't change the antennas on the receiver, but I doubt my wireless needs will surpass the original ones in the next few years. My only uncertainty: I wonder how solid the link is gonna be on stages with many 2.4Ghz devices around. HARDWARE The battery system is very cool. You get many hours out of it before the light turns red and when that happens, you can still go on for at least an hour (haven't tried to go further). To charge the battery, you can pop it right into the receiver unit, or you can even plug the mic directly into a USB port to charge the battery (micro USB). The mic and receiver are made of plastic, which is light and looks solid enough for my needs.

    Novation Launchpad S - Very satisfying!

    by RedPen on 04-17-2014 08:08 AM <p><img src="http://img.audiofanzine.com/image.php?lang=en&amp;identifier=id&amp;size=thumb1&amp;module=product&amp;product_id=179674" alt="" title="Novation Launchpad S - Very satisfying!" /></p>I used the S Launchpad for 4 months, I later sold to purchase a home AKAI APC 40. I had not tried to Launchpad or other products from Novation. It is very easy to use, it includes its configuration instantly ... it's Live at your fingertips! We launch clips, scenes, we can handle the volume of tracks, Sends, thanks to the panoramic MIXER mode which is very convenient.The USER mode is very effective: It has the ability to play drums for example, and save-the-fly live. In addition, the S version which lit pads have a more vivid color, and the feel is very nice. Launchpad even comes with skins for FL Studio (I do not use) which is designed for users of this software. What I like most about this product is its ease of transportation, use, and quality workmanship. The USER mode is awesome and the interface is very well thought out! Indeed, Novation had the good idea to set slip pad under the controller. I bought it with cover for storage, it was perfect. What I like least is the lack of faders or knobs. Obviously, the S Launchpad does not claim to be an "all in one". For a more complete controller that manages more features, better to turn to an Akai APC 40 or at home Livid Instruments CNTRL; however, this is not the same budget. Managing the volume could be a little more specific in the MIXER section: the volume is managed by leaps 6DB and nothing else. In conclusion, the S Launchpad is a handy controller, well thought out, versatile and well built, the price is attractive! PS: The Launchpad S is essentially dedicated to Ableton Live, although skins for FL are provided, it is with Ableton Live controller that can express all its qualities background! With hindsight, I would definitely do it again the same choice, Novation has pulled it off! Jibé RedPen alias.

    API Audio 5500 Dual Equalizer - A good cleaner

Output transformers. No adjustment of Q, the latter becoming increasingly close with the boost or cut. Shelf option on the bass and treble. Range practice setting (0.25, 0.5 and 1) that divides by 4 or 2 gain values. Of course if one is 1, the boost / cut will be the value indicated on the knob. It allows for a versatile EQ for both large corrections to the mix for minor alterations to mastering.

    Lehle Dual - A perfect ABY Box

    by drapeau_rouge on 04-17-2014 04:00 AM <p><img src="http://img.audiofanzine.com/image.php?lang=en&amp;identifier=id&amp;size=thumb1&amp;module=product&amp;product_id=88668" alt="" title="Lehle Dual - A perfect ABY Box" /></p>Dual is a ABY box that allows you to split the signal to play on 2 amps at the same time and even to a tuner. Each of the two outputs (except tuner) has its independent volume control, which adjusts the intensity of the signal sent to one or other of the outputs. It's simple, the Lehle Dual job done perfectly, without noise and without loops. I play 2 amps in concert, sometimes alternating, often in unison and Dual is impeccable. It's been almost 7 years that I use and I've never had the beginning of a problem. The quality gear at a price ... certainly significant, but it is the price of peace.

    Elokance 800C - Good quality / price ratio

    by ponfri on 04-17-2014 01:28 AM <p><img src="http://img.audiofanzine.com/image.php?lang=en&amp;identifier=id&amp;size=thumb1&amp;module=product&amp;product_id=160481" alt="" title="Elokance 800C - Good quality / price ratio" /></p>I use it for almost two years, it is my speakers lounge and evenings ... What made me choose this model is the price compared to other systems of the same power. Outside, I was pleasantly surprised by its power. Small flat on the lack of medium because it can quickly become loud in treble. But with a console (as I used) it corrects. The carpet finish is not the most beautiful effect but at this price it is just secondary. The price / quality ratio is excellent. Recommended for tight budgets.

This is the octave divider at the base It offers two modes, unison mode with four lengths (2 ', 4', 8 ', 16') and a standard mode with 3 osc offering three waveforms, we really switch between two configurations, as if there were two in a different synths. The unison mode consists of 4 long way organ, each length is spaced an octave and is composed of 3 oscillators each square after generation of octave division, used 4 lengths back to have 12 oscillators operating c is really big, each oscillator can be detuned independently, really huge, with vibrato, tremelo and resonance over there with the game on the cuttoff is huge Standard mode offers a standard config with 3 osc selection and lengths of 32 '2' by push button (not active in unison mode), it's classic. The sawtooth is an assembly of several square signals, it is clearly visible and identifiable to the ear, is there a special harmonic supperposition that make this single tooth finally saw the other two rectangular signals are classics. We found a sound especially with the moog filter. The envelopes are very fast, I could do very, very convincing 808 kicks, with a very significant impact. The filter is Moog 4 pole, very fine, it is sef resonant and you can play with the sinus created with the key follower, very friendly and heavenly

So finally I would say that quality is taken over all good purchased for 295 Euros on sonovente was beefier than a simple bag and bags prenium transport with 2 cables (spiral and right) 2 are 3 meters long and 1 pair of fabric oreilletes spare I say more when we see other brands not to mention selling some headphones at the same level packaging made but it is not zero even a cable replacement are of atria and bags and even less so I counsel all those who want to make a good investment and I will conclude by saying congratulations SENNHEISER I remake that choice eyes closed.

There is therefore: - Grid black aluminum to fix the pedals on through a system of male / female velcro provided, - Flight case with chrome accents and gray panels, - Supports for attachment metal on the power supply to the place below the grid, - Screw the metal bracket for power It must be admitted, Pedaltrain pedalboard delivers a very flexible in the arrangement of pedals, ultra-sound and well thought out. I was very impressed by the strength and quality of manufacture. Side of the coin, the unit is quite bulky and rather heavy as weighs about 20 pounds when everything is installed, including flight. I owned the Pedaltrain 2 Hard Case for 8 years (it was the first version without the holes for the power supply) and I made the choice to guide me on a Pedaltrain 3 for more space and able to fix my diet below (Voodoo Lab Mondo). I could keep my Pedaltrain 2 but I had trouble getting used to the idea of ​​cutting cheerfully to fix my diet ... changes were irreversible. I do not regret my choice. The Pedaltrain 2 Hard Case was already very strong, here the flight case is still a bit above despite similar design. Adding wheels and 2 extra handles on the sides a little easier transport of this ultra-pro pedalboard. For the choice of facing hard case soft case, I again hesitated between. And then I saw on the internet (forums and commercial sites) many users disappointed with the soft version box with a carrying case (cover torn piecemeal handle cover, problems with zip ...). While the price is not the same between the two versions, but considering the total value of my pedals, I preferred to take the hard version of the box to ensure maximum protection and I do not regret. The price / quality ratio is not so bad because a flight like this is very expensive. This pedalboard is an investment in the long term, but it will make you great service.
