Are you ready for the biggest event of the year? Vintage King is at the NAMM Show 2023, and we can’t wait to share with you all of the new products that have caught our eye. From cutting-edge audio interfaces to innovative 500 Series modules, there’s something for everyone at this year’s show. Here are some of the highlights that have already been announced.

Avid Pro Tools MTRX II

Introducing the Avid Pro Tools | MTRX II, the new standard in professional audio interfaces. This powerful device is designed to meet the needs of the most demanding post-production and music production studios, offering unparalleled performance and versatility.

The Pro Tools | MTRX II works with any workflow, whether you use Pro Tools, Core Audio DAWs, Avid control surfaces, or other studio gear. Additionally, the MTRX II can be used as a high-quality standalone audio interface with a built-in monitor controller, making it easy to adjust the levels of your speakers and headphones.

Neumann MT 48

Neumann’s first-ever audio interface, the MT 48, promises unparalleled sound quality and flexibility. Developed in collaboration with digital audio experts Merging Technologies, the MT 48 features a wide dynamic range, ultra-low-impedance headphone outputs, and plenty of expandability via digital I/O. The large color touchscreen makes it easy to access settings, routing, mixing, and DSP effects, so you can spend less time fiddling with your gear and more time creating music.

As Neumann puts it, “The MT 48 is the missing link in the Neumann universe, connecting microphones, loudspeakers, and headphones to create the perfect studio.” If you're looking for a top-of-the-line audio interface that will give you the tools you need to make your music sound its best, the Neumann MT 48 is the perfect choice.

Cranborne Audio Carnaby 500

Meet the Carnaby 500, a 3-band parametric EQ for the 500 Series format that offers something truly innovative—Harmonic EQ. This is the first analog EQ in the world that uses harmonic saturation to shape your sound, adding a new dimension of warmth and character to your audio. 

The secret behind Carnaby 500 is its ‘saturation-core’ technology that generates authentic analog harmonic saturation as you boost and cut frequencies. With the Carnaby 500, you get the best of both worlds: the precision and flexibility of an equalizer, and the richness and depth of harmonic saturation.

Flock Audio Patch VT and CX Module

PATCH VT is Flock Audio’s latest addition to the PATCH series, boasting 128-point connections (64 inputs/64 outputs), plus two front-panel TRS/XLR combo inputs, and two XLR outputs, making it easier than ever to interface with all of your favorite gear. Equipped with patented Flock Audio Matrix Technology, PATCH VT offers 100% transparent analog routing with no AD/DA conversion, latency, or changes in level or impedance when creating complex multing combinations. 

Positioned between the classic 64-point PATCH and the extensive 192-point PATCH XT, the PATCH VT is suitable for mid-sized studios that require more than 32 inputs or outputs but don't need the PATCH XT's capabilities. Moreover, PATCH VT, like all products in the PATCH Series, can be expanded with up to 10 PATCH modules.

Trinnov NOVA Processor 

Trinnov's latest release, the NOVA Optimizer, provides affordable and portable access to the brand's cutting-edge Optimizer technology. Despite its compact size, the NOVA is a powerful tool that covers all your monitoring needs from stereo to 5.1. As with all Trinnov's Optimizer solutions, the NOVA makes it easy to connect, align, and seamlessly switch between sources and multiple sets of monitors. 

NOVA features an array of analog and digital I/Os, allowing you to connect all your devices, including multiple sets of speakers, your audio interface, and Trinnov's 3D Measurement Mic and La Remote hardware controller. Additionally, you can use the NOVA as your primary audio interface along with the Dante virtual sound card for direct DAW-to-monitoring integration.

Neumann KH 120-II 

The KH 120 A was the first studio monitor from Neumann and it quickly became a worldwide reference for professional monitoring. The Neumann KH 120 II is the next generation of reference monitors, taking the acclaimed KH 120 A to a new level with deeper bass, higher resolution, and onboard DSP power. 

In spite of its small form, this studio monitor delivers deep low-end down to 44 Hz and high SPL capability and features an array of analog and digital connectivity, with optional AES67. Best of all, the new KH 120-II monitors can be combined with other KH Series speakers to create immersive or surround setups.

We're also eagerly anticipating big announcements from some of our favorite manufacturers, including Antelope Audio, Kali Audio, IK Multimedia, Pope Audio, and Ex Machina. These companies always push the envelope when it comes to innovative audio gear, and we can't wait to see what they have in store for us this year.
