Pro Audio Technology News From Around The Web
Synchro Arts VocALign is now available with ARA integration in Studio One Professional. ARA (Audio Random Access) is an extension co-developed by Celemony and PreSonus for audio plug-ins. ARA technology enhances the communication between plug-in and DAW, and gives the plug-in and host instant access to the audio data without requiring audio to be exported to the plug-in and then re-imported into the DAW. Synchro Arts and PreSonus have worked together to integrate VocALign tightly into Studio One with a simple, streamlined workflow to provide automatic, instantaneous time alignment of the selected audio signals.
VocALign with ARA integration is a free update for all registered users.
An alternate term for “vibrato system,” encompasses all of the parts of an electric guitar vibrato assembly. The specific pieces depend on the type of vibrato system. For example, a double-locking system will have a locking nut, floating bridge, fine tuners, vibrato arm, and vibrato springs. A Bigsby vibrato system will only have a tailpiece, vibrato arm , and vibrato springs.
ATC has unveiled the SCM12 Pro, a compact passive 2-way studio monitor. Coming in at an affordable price, the SCM12 Pro features a smaller footprint design, a proprietary 6-inch woofer, and a high-power 1-inch soft-dome tweeter featuring ATC’s unique dual-suspension technology.
The all-new P1 Pro amplifier is the ideal companion for the SCM12 Pro, with 150-watts per channel in a rackmount format. The dual-mono, two-channel amp utilizes the same technologies as the acclaimed amp packs built into the ATC Active Monitor line. The P1 Pro’s stellar specifications include less than 0.002% total harmonic distortion (at -95dB), greater than 100dB crosstalk isolation, greater than 110dB (DIN) signal-to-noise, and a frequency response that runs from near DC to 400kHz (-3dB). Special bundle pricing is available when purchasing the SCM12 Pros with the P1 Pro.
World-famous guitarist and founder of BluGuitar Thomas Blug presents his Amp1 Nanotube amplifier. This compact amp packs a Nanotube-driven output section that delivers the punch and sonic intensity of a tube power amp. Use it to drive your favorite speaker cabinet, or plug directly into the sound system with the cabinet-emulated output.
The optional Remote1 adds a ton of functionality, including user presets for all amp settings. The optional Looper Kit adds four switchable, relay-based effects loops to your rig.

Another word-ological victim of guitarists’ tendency to refer to their guitar’s vibrato system as a “tremolo” system. Tremolo springs (vibrato springs) are used to counter-balance the pull of the strings. The springs balance the bridge or tailpiece of the system so that the guitar can be played normally, and provide tension so that the bridge or tailpiece returns to its balanced resting position after the vibrato system is used to raise or lower the pitch of the strings.
With a surface-mount tailpiece system, such as a Bigsby, the spring is inserted between the vibrato bar and the tailpiece. In an internally mounted system, such as the standard Stratocaster tremolo or a locking tremolo system, such as a Floyd Rose, the spring is located inside a body cavity in the back of the guitar. It is attached to a moving block that is integral to the bridge on one end and a “claw” screwed into the guitar’s back on the other.
Keith McMillan Instruments has released Windows support for the K-MIX 8-in/10-out audio interface programmable mixer. Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10 (64-bit only) are now supported by the K-Mix Editor software and the custom K-MIX USB Audio Driver 1.1.0.
Plugin Alliance has issued the following statement:
“…in our qualification of Apple’s new Sierra OS (v10.12) we have discovered serious problems with many Plugin Alliance products that primarily affect customers who use the Audio Units format. Our developers are working hard on a solution, but at this time we are recommending that all Mac-based Plugin Alliance customers do not upgrade to Sierra. We will continue our qualification efforts and expect to announce full support in the near future.”
