The Rewire project sees a collaboration between abstract urban artists and experimental electronic musicians, where the latter interpret the works of the former. These works are to be exhibited at Gamma Transport Division, Edinburgh. The Kickstarter aims to supplement the exhibition with a book and vinyl box set, and ends on Saturday August 9th.
AVB has been developed by the IEEE as an international standard specification for transporting high-bandwidth, low-latency audio and video over Ethernet. As a true industry standard, it is not proprietary and controlled by one company, allowing for open interoperability across devices and brands, with consistent, non-disruptive adoption of refinements to the specification, as it evolves.
MOTU have also released a 5-port AVB Switch for the networking of AVB interfaces.
Steinberg have released VST Connect Performer for iPad – now an iPad can be used for remote recording of audio and MIDI via internet to a host computer running a full version of Cubase 7 or higher/Nuendo 6.
Steinberg have announced details regarding support for Yosemite.
The letter as posted online,
Dear loyal Steinberg customer,
As an industry leader, Steinberg Media Technologies strive to provide the best customer experience when purchasing and using our products. We therefore have chosen to communicate relevant results that have come to our attention directly with you, results that may be of your concern in the next months.
In light of the forthcoming operating system OS X Yosemite recently announced by Apple we have unfortunately identified an issue with our software.
The issue is owing to our current installer as implemented through the entire range of our software products. If you are planning to update to Yosemite this fall or to take part in the Yosemite beta-testing program, please be aware that our software products as are cannot be installed on this operating system. Current Steinberg software installed before updating to OS X Yosemite is not affected.
The solution we offer is a small software tool currently available as downloadable pre-release version from our website which will enable a seamless installation of our existing software range on the OS X Yosemite operating system.
Again, we recognize this issue may cause some confusion. I want to emphasize that the issue has duly been addressed and you can continue to use our software products with confidence on the upcoming operating system announced by Apple.
There has also been a Nuendo Live 1.1 maintenance update as well. – Version 1.1 provides compatibility with Windows 8/8.1 and OS X 10.9 as well as with Yamaha’s QL live mixers.
I (SF) have commented numerously on the desire to listen to music with the option to tweak it – and AJ has written/talked about the moving beyond the fixity of recorded music…
I’m also involved in a number of collaborative projects would benefit from a less clunky way of sharing session data – but is some sort of open standard for cross software transfer too much to ask for?
I (SF) have tried it out both in its standalone and VST plugin versions and — after initially being overwhelmed by the number of parameters, and somewhat underwhelmed by some of the presets — have found it to be a convincing simulation of real-world guitar rig(at times too much so → all that hum!)… The included noise gate is invaluable!
UK based Modulus is pleased to announce the availability of the Modulus.002 an analogue/digital hybrid polysynth.
The Modulus.002 features a Fater semi-weighted keyboard, with 12 discrete voices of polyphony. IT features two oscillators per voice alongside two sub-oscillators with select-able wave forms. Also included is a 24dB/octave four pole to 6dB/octave one pole filter transitions and a LFO is available to each voice along with a global LFO.
What makes the Modulus.002 more interesting though is the use of a digital control service centred around a touch screen interface and interestingly Ethernet connectivity for updates and program management, though the more typical MIDI connectivity is also offered.
