Steinberg AXR4 Thunderbolt Audio Interface with premium sound quality
The AXR4 features four Neutrik combo inputs and two individual headphone outputs on the front side. On the rear panel are eight TRS line inputs and eight TRS line outputs alongside two pairs of ADAT I/O doubling as S/PDIF, the second of which provides an alternative AES/EBU Sub-D connector. The MIDI input and output next to the word clock I/O featuring advanced SSPLL (Super Suppression Phase Locked Loop) jitter suppression round out the many connectivity options available to the AXR4. Two Thunderbolt 2 connectors provide ample throughput for ultra-low latency recording, connecting to the computer and for daisy-chaining of up to three interfaces.
The design of the AXR4 interface is centred around delivering exceptional audio quality. With a 32-bit integer resolution as well as a maximum sample rate of 384 kHz, this audio interface is like no other, setting the standard for future music productions. Its four studio-grade hybrid microphone preamps deliver a very natural sound owing to the refined transformer circuitry and Rupert Neve Designs’ SILK processing, accurately modelled by Yamaha’s VCM (Virtual Circuitry Modelling) technology.
First-class DSP effects for monitoring
Another prominent highlight is the inclusion of Yamaha’s DSP effects for latency-free monitoring: the VCM 276 compressor, the VCM EQ601, the Sweet Spot Morphing Channel Strip, and the REV-X reverb, a complex reverb algorithm renowned for its superb sound quality.
Any DAW can be used with the AXR4 by harnessing the power of the dspMixFx AXR mixing application, providing easy routing and setup of the 28x24 matrix mixer and monitoring without any latency when using the included effects.
“With its selected components and renowned SILK processing by Rupert Neve Designs, our AXR4 interface considerably raises the bar in audio quality. The comprehensive input and output options make it the perfect choice for ambitious musicians and producers of project studios and larger recording facilities.
Nexo Geo M12
Nexo is proud to add the new M12 to its flagship Geo M Series. The new Geo M12 is a compact line array system with easy AutoRigTM integral rigging system which automatically connects the speakers from the front rigging points when the they’re assembled together. Geo M12 comes in two variants, giving you the option of 10° and 20° of vertical dispersion. Moreover, you can easily increase the horizontal dispersion of the speaker by using the magnetic waveguide flanges from 80° to 120°. Speaking of ease and versatility, the Geo M12 gives you the option to switch from a 2-way Passive mode to 2-way Active mode with a mere flick of a switch at the back of the speaker, on the go. It uses a patented V-shaped profile for its bass port to increase low frequency efficiency and linearity even at high power. The Geo M12 can achieve a frequency response of 50Hz to 20kHz and a nominal peak of 140 dB SPL with its 12” long excursion Neodymium driver equipped with a patented Phase Directivity Device and a 3” voice coil 1.4” throat driver on a patented Hyperbolic Reflective WavesourceTM which creates a virtual wavesource ‘outside the box’, resulting in optimal wavesource coupling without destructive interference. You can get a flexible system with the same accessories, making the switch from hanging the speakers to ground stacking all the more easy.
