Audio Hardware : Alta Moda Audio releases the AM-30 - macmusicAlta Moda Audio releases the AM-30
Fully discrete microphone preamplifier in 500 series format

Hilo Hawaii – February 10 2014 – Professional audio equipment manufacturer Alta Moda Audio today debuted the AM-30, its first ever microphone preamplifier and the latest product in Alta Moda's expanding range of popular 500-series rack products.

The Alta Moda AM-30 is a fully discrete, class A transformer-less design unlike any other preamp on the market. Clean at lower settings, the AM-30 can be pushed and smoothly over-driven where other preamps would harshly clip. The AM-30's high headroom and DI input make it ideal to warm up previously recorded tracks or loops. Made in the USA, the AM-30 has a MSRP of $499 USD.

Alta Moda makes the highly acclaimed Unicomp all-discrete stereo compressor/limiter as well as a line of quality, high-performance modules for 500-series compatible rack enclosures.

Virtual Instrument : Sample Logic announces HAVOC - macmusicSample Logic announces HAVOC – Pre-order & Save!

HAVOC is the ultimate cinematic percussive suite of over 850 instruments and multis that will transform the tools of your trade. The HAVOC sample collection has been derived from hundreds of industrial machines, farm tools, and everyday auto body parts and gears, all recorded in a massive multi-car garage. Each sample was recorded, processed, manipulated, morphed and then programmed creatively utilizing Sample Logic's award-winning user interface controls. Geared for film, TV, game composers, and sound designers, HAVOC takes cinematic percussion to an entirely new level.

Recorded in a massive multi-car garage!

Wood, plastic, metal, and glass are among the many organic materials used, twisted, and morphed into HAVOC. From saws and chains, to buckets and drills, anything and everything one would find inside a garage was recorded. Why not bring these tools to the recording studio? Instead, HAVOC brings the recording studio to the garage. Everything was recorded in their natural habitat (a massive 24-car garage), the result of which was amazing acoustics and natural reverbs culminating in bigger and more cinematic sounds!

Advanced User Interface

HAVOCS' progressive user interface has been designed with the composer and sound designer in mind, providing effortless control for complete real-time customization. HAVOC is centered on user experience by providing the freedom to infinitely transform samples into evolving instruments with endless possibilities.

Features include:

"Multi-core Effect Sequencers" for real-time effect automation
"Triggers" – 48 unique effect chains
"Arpeggigater" – sequencer based gate effect
