[permalink] 20.04.2017

Sony A9 ILCE-9 Alpha photo Sony introduced a new, revolutionary digital camera, the A9 (model ILCE-9). The most technologically advanced, innovative digital camera that Sony has ever created, the new A9 offers high-speed, blackout-free continuous shooting at up to 20 fps, 60 AF/AE tracking calculations per second, a maximum shutter speed of up to 1/32,000 second and much more. These features are made possible thanks to its new 35mm full-frame stacked Exmor RS CMOS sensor -- the world's first of its kind -- which enables data speed processing at up to 20x faster than previous Sony full-frame mirrorless cameras. This unique sensor is paired with a brand new, upgraded BIONZ X processing engine and front-end LSI that maximises overall performance. The new A9 also features a vibration free, fully electronic, completely silent anti-distortion shutter, a new Z battery (NP-FZ100) with approximately 2.2x the capacity of W batteries, dual SD media card slots (one with UHS-II support), an Ethernet port, new Quad-VGA OLED Tru-Finder with approximately 3,686k dots, a 5-axis image stabilisation system, uncompressed 14-bit RAW support, and 4K video recording across the full width of the full-frame image sensor. Additionally, the camera can record Full HD at 120 fps at up to 100 Mbps. The new A9 will start shipping from May 2017 (U.S.A.) to June 2017 (Europe) priced at approximately 4,500 USD / 5,300 EUR / 4,500 GBP. [source]

Spitfire Audio aims for the stars with BT PHOBOS Polyconvolution Synthesizer
[permalink] 19.04.2017

Spitfire Audio BT PHOBOS Polyconvolution Synthesizer video Spitfire Audio released BT PHOBOS, a virtual synthesizer conceived in close collaboration with notable namesake American composer and electronica pioneer BT (Brian Transeau; The Fast And The Furious, Monster, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider). The new Polyconvolution Synthesizer for AAX, AU, VST, and VST3-supporting DAWs lends itself to writing cinematic electronic, epic, and hybrid compositions, courtesy of its liquid, morphing, and transformational convolution capabilities. Based on the unexplored precept of polyconvolution as its synthesis engine, the BT PHOBOS combines rhythmical with tonal (as an impulse response) yielding some of the most modern, liquid, and percolating responses! BT PHOBOS can be purchased and digitally downloaded (22.9 GB of uncompressed WAV files, featuring 2,422 samples) as Spitfire Audio's first plug-in for any AAX-, AU-, VST-, and VST3-supporting host for a time-limited introductory promo price of 209 GBP / 229 USD / 239 EUR (inc.

Plugin Alliance nails Neve vintage vibe with 354E multiband compressor plug-in
[permalink] 18.04.2017

Plugin Alliance Neve 354E video Plugin Alliance, uniting some of the best-known international audio companies under one virtual roof, is proud to announce availability of 354E - Plugin Alliance partner Lindell Audio's multi-band model of the venerable Neve 2254E diode bridge compressor, replicating its distinctive behavior and creamy character as an appealing AAX Native-, AU-, VST2-, and VST3-compatible three-band M/S (Mid-Side) mastering compressor plug-in. The original 2254 mono compressor/limiter design dates back to 1969, becoming a standard module in the company's classic 80 Series analogue consoles. Its input stage is based around an input transformer followed by a diode bridge relying on the dynamic resistance of the diodes changing with current provided by control voltage to act as a level control element. The plug-in models the famous compressor across each of its three (LOW, MID, HIGH) independent frequency bands with adjustable crossover frequency bands (for honing in on where compression is needed most). Out now for a time-limited introductory promo price of 129 USD, rising to 199 USD thereafter. [source]
