  • Buyer's Guide: Avid Pro Tools | MTRX

    Avid have been busy adding features to Pro Tools over the past couple of years, but it’s been a while since we’ve seen any new hardware from them. During that time we’ve seen the I/O hardware playing field change as AD/DA Converters have taken another leap in quality/affordability and Audio-Over-IP has started to really take shape and consolidate around the Dante standard from Audinate.

    Now Avid is back in the hardware game with a very well specified, pristine sounding I/O with sophisticated internal routing and IP connectivity. Meet the Avid Pro Tools | MTRX. MTRX was originally designed by NPI and launched as the DAD AX32. It’s a configurable interface that has already found a home with high-end mix and mastering engineers and Vintage King Audio clients like Alan Meyerson, Craig Bauer, Warner Brothers and Mick Guzauski. This new version has been rebranded and updated with a smart black finish, and a simplified menu of user-installable optional upgrades. Continue reading

  • Hear The New UK Sound 176 Mono Compressor

    In late 2017, BAE Audio announced the formation of a sister company, UK Sound, with a focus on creating affordable, high quality gear. UK Sound's latest release follows suit with this ideal, as the 176 mono compressor offers up a design inspired by the classic UREI/Universal Audio 1176.

    This isn't the first time that UK Sound has channeled the legendary FET-style compressor. The brand's first release, the 1173, brought together an 1176-style design with the much-loved Neve 1073 mic pre. While the 1173 comes in at a cost of $1,200, the new standalone version of the 176 only costs $749.00. This makes it perfect for anyone who already owns a 1073 mic pre and just wants more compression in their workflow.
