Akai Professional, a leading manufacturer of keyboards for performers and recording artists, introduced its new Advance Keyboard series. Available in 25-, 49-, and 61-key sizes, the Advance 25, Advance 49, and Advance 61 provide unprecedented playability and advanced manipulation of any virtual instrument via an interactive, full-color display complemented by performance friendly hardware controls.

Sound Radix Drum Leveler

By selectively applying gain to single drum beats, Drum Leveler easily achieves the desired target level for each beat, without affecting bleed noise or beats that are out of the user-defined processing range. Unlike traditional envelope-followers that detect incoming levels and utilize VCA to apply gain changes, Drum Leveler runs an advanced new algorithm that takes full advantage of the digital domain - allowing unparalleled control over drums' dynamics. Available now, priced at $149 US, for Mac OS X and Windows systems and AAX, RTAS, VST and AU hosts, both 32 and 64-bit. [source]
