    Avid Sibelius 7 - Just a notation software.

    by Dargor on 07-24-2014 11:20 AM <p><img src="http://img.audiofanzine.com/image.php?lang=en&amp;identifier=id&amp;size=thumb1&amp;module=product&amp;product_id=123314" alt="" title="Avid Sibelius 7 - Just a notation software." /></p>One of the first things to notice, it's that the program will take some time to install it (it requires a minimum of 40 gigabytes free space) and make sure that you have a better hardware than the one specified on the minimum requirements section, otherwise it will either crash or freeze quite often. I've only used it under Windows 7 and no compatibility mode was required. The audio configuration could be a little tricky, since the manual it's a little hard to understand if you're new with this type of software, so as the MIDI configuration. Tutorials a little hard to follow, so basically you have to learn on the go.

    Shure PG27 - "Not that Great, but not that Bad"

    by livewidmusic on 07-24-2014 07:13 AM <p><img src="http://img.audiofanzine.com/image.php?lang=en&amp;identifier=id&amp;size=thumb1&amp;module=product&amp;product_id=95750" alt="" title="Shure PG27 - "Not that Great, but not that Bad"" /></p>The "Shure-PG27" side address cardioid condenser microphone comes in two options - XLR and USB type. I went with the XLR option. Weighing only 438 grams, this condenser microphone delivers what it promises. Extremely sensitive highs. This phantom powered uni-directional microphone delivers up-to 124DB SPL and up-to 144DB SPL (with -20DB attenuator switched on). The maximum output gain this microphone can withstand is -41DBV/Pa at minimum gain. Having a gold sputtered Mylar large diaphragm, the PG27 can be used for a wide variety of amplified and analog sound applications such as for vocals, acoustic/bass guitars, wind instruments, drum overheads and piano, especially for professional studio recording environments (Applications might vary with the person using the microphone). Though the PG27 mentions a neutral frequency response of 20Hz-20KHz, there is a significant boost from the 4KHz region, especially between 6-8KHz and then the response gradually decreases with another exaggerated boost from the 10KHz region. The polar pattern mentioned along with the manual, is almost similar while recording. More concentrated capturing happens towards the centre. The sides are also well sensitive. The User guide and the specification sheet is available online via the official Shure website, and the information given is trustworthy and convincing. There are no additional drivers/softwares to be downloaded to start using this microphone. Connect the XLR to your dedicated Sound-card, switch on your phantom power and you are ready to record. I have mainly used the PG-27 mostly for recording vocals. In this regard, the vocals captured usually would have boosted highs, but this can be controlled depending upon the mic placement and the type of room you are recording in. Don't worry, the PG-27 has a good understanding of the proximity effect and delivers boosted bass around 6 - 10DB's below 100Hz, when you are close enough to the microphone (Close to around 1/4 inch).

    Subdecay Studios Quasar DLX - The most original

    by stiiiiiiive on 07-24-2014 05:48 AM <p><img src="http://img.audiofanzine.com/image.php?lang=en&amp;identifier=id&amp;size=thumb1&amp;module=product&amp;product_id=116371" alt="" title="Subdecay Studios Quasar DLX - The most original" /></p>It is an analog phaser based BBD chip digitally controlled: the best of both worlds. It is switchable between 4, 6 and 8 poles. An inlet and an outlet, plus a CV input or expression. Power is negative center between 9 and 18V. I have not tried with more than 9V. Many settings are fairly traditional: center frequency of phasing, phasing depth, re-injection (feedback) positive or negative mix between the incoming signal and the phase signal, LFO shape and speed of the latter. Two footswitches complement it all: a tap tempo and bypass. Perhaps they are a bit too close ... nothing discriminant. Besides that, I appreciate its small size allows it to be easily integrated into a pedalboard. LED oscillates between red and yellow at the rate of the LFO when the effect is activated. It oscillates between red and off when the effect is bypassed. Practice to see the tempo at any time.

This was followed by a golden period called "the golden age jackson" where the models produced under the name professionnal were in the opinion of connoisseurs of quality equal to U.S. models between 90 and 95. At this time the brand took the time to dry out the wood! blow the beats were dry and hold water .. But today new guitars .... short .... The only real difference between this and the MIJ USest hardware the U.S. is equipped with an original floyd . Mine is 1992, verifiable and identifiable by the "digit" 5 digits visible on the last fret. Originally mounted duncan sh4/sh2 with a floyd Shaller, which has nothing to envy to a floyd rose frt 2000 marks pearl and the jackson logo, ebony fingerboard, white binding, a rounded table 18 MM maple carved knobs dug a push pull on the volume to get the double simple.

They give great sound, they last long and remain flexible (light), which allows you to make "bends" as a guitar. The 45-125 provides easy shooting game for all styles of music, including blues. I hope Dean Markley long continue to model strings and pulling 45-125.

    Roland A-800PRO-R - A powerful keyboard and quality

    by - Krom - on 07-24-2014 01:50 AM <p><img src="http://img.audiofanzine.com/image.php?lang=en&amp;identifier=id&amp;size=thumb1&amp;module=product&amp;product_id=143486" alt="" title="Roland A-800PRO-R - A powerful keyboard and quality" /></p>I will not detail the features that are available everywhere, but those who have made me lean towards this keyboard. I was looking mainly a MIDI keyboard 61 keys with aftertouch, relatively compact, which has controllers fader and potentiometer type and also the possibility to plug in and use a MIDI sustain pedal. It&#39;s been a year and a half that I have this keyboard as I write this review.

    Yamaha PSR-S950

    by sireson on 07-23-2014 09:19 PM <p><img src="http://img.audiofanzine.com/image.php?lang=en&amp;identifier=id&amp;size=thumb1&amp;module=product&amp;product_id=163404" alt="" title="Yamaha PSR-S950" /></p>When purchasing this keyboard I was looking for an instrument that could run a live show I was putting together without any other equipment. I wanted to perform from the keyboard as well as be supported with a realistic, or at least sympathetic accompaniment. What I was not expecting was to be pleasantly surprised at how this instrument not only ticked all the boxes I wanted but also provided inspiration for taking the show further. The S950 is a 61-key keyboard workstation with features and options too numerous for a single review. The connections are basic: output L & R, foot pedal input, MIDI, USB B and USB A as well as a mic input (more on this later). In addition there is a video output, primarily designed for showing the lyrics when running karaoke tracks - something this reviewer has yet to enjoy… The main panel is a sea of buttons and a few knobs, the colour display being the centre of the keyboard’s universe. All functions are designed to be accessible with as few presses as possible and, for the most part, the screen is clear about where you should go next. There are getting on for 1000 voices built in to the unit, several of them the same as those on the Tyros 4. Four of these voices can be played at the same time, two each side of the split point. In addition there are over 400 accompaniment styles, each with four variations, a set of fills and three intros and three endings. On top of all that there are a raft of multi pad sets, some of which are one-shot, others of which are MIDI based - they play along to your chord selection - and you can also play your own .wav files directly from a USB stick. With the addition of a sequencer, many many effects, a vocal harmoniser, USB audio playback and full one-touch registration memory this keyboard provides infinite flexibility only really limited by your imagination and your understanding of how the keyboard works.

    ESP Truckster - Aged Primer Grey - just perfect

    Roland RD-700SX - Excellent portable piano

    by sireson on 07-23-2014 07:27 PM <p><img src="http://img.audiofanzine.com/image.php?lang=en&amp;identifier=id&amp;size=thumb1&amp;module=product&amp;product_id=34032" alt="" title="Roland RD-700SX - Excellent portable piano" /></p>I will open this review by saying that I primarily purchased this instrument for the piano action and a reasonable piano sound. I am a classically-trained pianist and regularly need to perform at events where no piano is available and a lightweight keyboard just will not suffice. This instrument is a stage piano and therefore has a full, 88-key, piano action keyboard. This action makes the piano quite heavy (25Kg) but the pay-off is the realistic feel of the keys. I spent some time selecting my first stage piano and that was an RD-600. Eventually I upgraded to this instrument, purely because the previous piano had seen too many gigs to look attractive at classical events any more. Connections to the piano are very basic. There are balanced XLR and unbalanced 1/4” output sockets, a headphone socket, MIDI ports and three pedal inputs. The only other connections are power and a USB B socket, discussed later. The layout of the control panel is simple but effective. Almost everything has a dedicated button and those that don’t are easily accessible via menus on the clear, central display. Something that should be obvious is the lack of internal speakers. This piano requires connecting to an amplifier of some sort. I generally use a Yamaha StagePas for amplification since it is very portable yet provides stereo sound - necessary for really appreciating the piano sound. This is clearly a negative but if there were speakers mounted in this portable instrument they would, most likely, be facing up, towards me, and not to the audience. This would be useless for all the situations I need this instrument for. Internally there are just over 200 sounds, as well as General MIDI, and 185 rhythm patterns. There are also various different effects that can be applied to the sounds to give quite a variety of results. However, I tend to use this piano primarily as a piano so I have not dug deep into sound/effect combinations. There are expansion slots available for the Roland SRX expansion boards but I have not installed any in my instrument as yet.

I would have taken an independent speaker sound quality but at this price, it is not there. Or he must walk around with more effects, preamps ... that says autonomous said as light then this amp has everything you need built.

    Roland CB-CS2 - Carrying bag for Cube Street EX

    by annieviolette on 07-23-2014 07:03 PM <p><img src="http://img.audiofanzine.com/image.php?lang=en&amp;identifier=id&amp;size=thumb1&amp;module=product&amp;product_id=213908" alt="" title="Roland CB-CS2 - Carrying bag for Cube Street EX" /></p>It is well thought out, very practical. We do not need to retire for the benefits top rolls provided with scratches. For an amp of this price, it's good to protect it and to walk safely. We are sometimes on the grass, it cuts the humidity, I leave the protected part knobs case where someone would go with a Shambling beer. Expensive but useful.

It took me several attempts to get the full downloads ... Get out your modules and banks ONE by ONE in the order suggested by the site! General Configuration: without comment, once everything has been downloaded properly ... No incompatibilities encountered, I use it in its latest version on win 7 64bit with Ableton Live 9. Question manual, it is clear, it is in English and with a racing such, it is a regret for me that does not control enough technical English. But the FAQ section of the website and service tips will certainly help.

    Carl Martin Pro Power - Excellent product

It is very convenient and it fits very easily. It is much less heavy and less heavy than it seems. With these 8 isolated and regulated (6 outputs 9V (100mA) / 12V (90mA) outputs and 2 9V (300mA) / 12V (200mA)) outputs, one can already have a beautiful configuation pedals. The connector is supplied with sufficient I think. I use a wha Custom Audio Electronics, a TC Electronic PolyTune Mini tuner, compressor Mad Professor, a Providence phaser, overdrive Suhr, distortion Tone Freak, a Strymon delay, reverb and boost Dr. Scientist. I put a lot of time deciding on a model to me my diet. I made the right choice in my opinion. It works perfectly without any buzz for over a year. The value for money is more than adequate when you see the modularity of it and the price of some models such as the Voodoo Lab.

    Elokance Elo-800C - Very satisfactory

But while one is very powerful, I am very satisfied! The record is excellent, it is very compact and is ideal for rooms up to 200 people. max and outdoors for "small" meetings. The bass / mid / treble is really stunning. The system has multiple inputs (RCA and XLR) with adaptation to any type of source! I find the quality / price ratio very suitable. Eventually, I intend to take the most advanced equipment, especially for larger parties, but this one fits all for a very reasonable budget.

It has an adjustable twitter.

    Apple Mac mini late-2012 core i7 2,3 Ghz - The foundations of my computer music configuration

    by rombautsdidier on 07-23-2014 03:08 PM <p><img src="http://img.audiofanzine.com/image.php?lang=en&amp;identifier=id&amp;size=thumb1&amp;module=product&amp;product_id=201043" alt="" title="Apple Mac mini late-2012 core i7 2,3 Ghz - The foundations of my computer music configuration" /></p>How long have you use it? - 1 day with ProTools 11, Sibelius First, Eastwest Complete Composer Collection, EZDrummer Toontrack, IK Multimedia Amplitube 3 and soon Apollo Twin Duo. What is the particular feature you like best and least? Goodies: - Instead it takes - Connectors available - Price Cons: - I nitpick but a second HDMI or DVI output would have been nice. Have you tried many other models before buying it? - Yes, I started with the iBook G4 and eMac, a Macbook Air, a MacPro. How would you rate the quality / price? - For the musician that I am, it meets my needs perfectly. It is clear that Apple is always more expensive than the others but it was worth our money. Stability, fluidity, a lot of software shipped by default for immediate use (Keynote, Page, Numbers, Garage Band, iMovie, iPhoto, etc ...) With experience, you do again this choice? ... - I no longer have the means and the use of acquiring the Macpro is overpriced, so to repeat the mac mini seems to be a very good solution for a sedentary musician.

    Pedaltrain Volto - A big thank you Pedaltrain

I bought to use in my Pedaltrain pedalboard nano. Comes with scratch, it can be installed quickly and easily in the pedalboard. It is thin and light. It delivers 2,000 mA with 2 9V outputs and comes with several cables that connects 6 pedals. Pedaltrain thought really everything! I could do a repeat of 3h without reloading having connected pedals 4 above. So I did need power cable, it's great. It can be charged by USB or jack and the loading is very fast growing. Here we have a great product, ideal for rehearsals and lives on a small to medium nomadic pedalboard.

    Alesis iO Dock II - disappointment

The idea was to make me a little mobile studio for the holidays. The real plus of this resort is that you can power the iPad while registering then with a mobile interface as in the line 6 we see the battery level off at high speed and you must always remember to reload ipad. Or there is great disappointment is that the guitar input produces a very audible hum whatever guitar and whatever settings. It is therefore useless to record a guitar. Latency is also audible, but still manageable. I do not know if this is a fault of mine or related to my ipad 2. I turned my stuff and I try something else.

    Radial Engineering BigShot EFX - It makes the job!

He found its place on my pedalboard for quick and easy snap two groups effect. One group for my rhythm sound saturated with 2 overdrives, and a Suhr Tone Freak. A second group for my lead sound with a boost Scientist Dr Providence and phaser. This allows me to not make tap when it comes to press pedals past several solo and even to go clean configuration. This is the first switcher that I use. Its main feature is that it has no LED. This is an advantage and a defect at a time. A default because on stage, without LED, you would lose. If it was not enough to hear back, we can not know if you have activated a loop or not. An advantage because it does not need power to operate. When you have a pedalboard with 8 pedals or sometimes more like me, and we used all the outputs of the power supply, it is very convenient and it avoids a cable more. I wanted a simple, robust model, effective and without the need for power. For the price, it does the job really well.

I must say that I am completely spoiled by the high-end audio that gives me my Metric Halo preamps, its converters, the MIO console and summing 80 bits, its quality DSP effects ... So I tend to quickly to the mouth as soon as it's a bit below: D You get used quickly to luxury, I guess! One DI, shame I think.
