The Triton Extreme

No doubt about it. This is the TRITON with attitude. The aggressive new TRITON Extreme isbursting at the seams with more of everything that has made the TRITON family the workstation of choice for tens of thousands of performers, producers and musicians the world over. Tricked out with vacuum tube processing, USB audio CD burning and data sharing, CompactFlash data storage, digital I/O and stuffed with sounds, it’s everything TRITON – taken to the Extreme. Get a price

Tweak:  The "new" sounds seem to be taken from the existing Korg triton expansion boards.

S•8 Active Studio Monitor

Not too long after we released our popular TAPCO S•5 active studio monitor, folks started asking us for a bigger, louder 8-inch version with the same acclaimed sound. Your wish is our command. The new TAPCO S•8 is the loudest, most accurate 8” active studio monitor in its class, with a big low-end response especially well suited to modern rock, hip-hop and dance music styles. Compare to the competition and hear for yourself. The S•8 gives you more of a very goodthing.


Tweak: An alternative to the Mackie HR824, anyone?



The COMPACT 10 by Soundcraft features 4 mono and 6 stereo inputs, with additional line input ¼” jack sockets on 4 of the stereo inputs.

Other standard features on the COMPACT include 3 band EQ on the inputs, along with professional 48V phantom power for condenser microphones, dedicated balanced and unbalanced Record and Playback connections, independent engineer & artist headphone outputs, and monitor outputs. The dual headphone feeds provide a level of monitoring normally found in large commercial studios.

IR-1 Parametric Convolution Reverb

IR-1 is for any DAW user who needs superior reverbs and ambiences. IR-1 is a convolution reverb which has flexible classic controls of the key reverb parameters. Unlike other convolution reverbs only the IR-1 allows editing of all the traditional reverb parameters. IR-1 comes with an extensive library of samples and presets that recreate the sonic environment of over 60 carefully sampled real acoustic spaces and over 60 samples and presets created by classic hardware devices. The technology used in creating this library is based on the culmination of years of research by leading acousticians with Waves and establishes new benchmarks for clarity and accuracy in a sampling reverb.

Tweak: Waves catches up to the competition and now has its own convolution reverb. Get a price

Also announced The Musicians Bundle and Transform Bundle V2


M-Audio announced the Firewire 18/14 which is an 18 in and 14 out audio interface with ADAT lightpipe connections.
