New Gear Alert: Studio-Q Talkback System by Radial, Turn Guitar Tabs Into Sheet Music with TabBank & More

View Single Page

Radial announces the Studio-Q™ desktop talkback/cue system is now shipping.

Radial delivers a much-needed talkback solution to smaller studios with Studio-Q.

The Studio-Q is a super compact, desktop talkback/cue system. It begins with a simple cue switch that turns on the built-in microphone (or the “producer” mic) XLR input. Each mic is equipped with an individual trim control along with a master mic volume. These can also be remotely activated using a remote mute footswitch. Once depressed, the signal is routed to the studio headphone system while it automatically shunts the program to the desired level.

The program signal path is balanced for easy integration with any console, and features a fully variable level control on the front panel. When the band is full-on, a remote output may be used to send a dry contact to a beacon to attract attention.

Studio-Q is available now for $259.99.


Focusrite announces the latest addition to the Plug-In Collective: WOW2.

WOW2 features 21 filters, all of which can operate in “Vowel” mode, opening up a world of extraterrestrial possibilities.

This month’s Focusrite Plug-In Collective offer is a 50% discount off Sugar Bytes’ WOW2 creative multi-filterbox for customers who have registered Focusrite hardware before August 31, 2017. Once registered, they can log into their Focusrite accounts to access WOW2, which is regularly available for $99.

WOW2 is everything needed in a filter unit, in a compact GUI. All 21 filters produce a warm analogue sound with high resolution, free of any aliasing. Creative possibilities are opened when the LFO sequencer steps in, which utilizes presets that are a great starting point for users to expand upon.

Turn guitar tabs into sheet music with the TabBank app for iOS.

Edit, play and print your own guitar tabs with TabBank, the new app for iOS made by the developers of ChordBank and Better Notes.

TabBank helps writers craft songs using simple chords, lyrics, and tablature, exports their compositions as printable, paper-sized PDFs, and even sends finished manuscripts directly to modern printers. It can also import existing tabs from the web.

From the same developers as longstanding guitar chord app ChordBank and Apple-featured notes app Better Notes, TabBank is designed as much for composing music as it is for finding and importing popular songs from the web.

A desktop version of TabBank, which will enable composers to start songs on their phone and finish them on a larger screen, is planned for later this fall.
