- MOTU Electric Keys – This is MOTU’s first sample collection since the release of Ethno Instrument, and it’s a winner! The company has now extended its virtual instrument expertise to the world of vintage keyboards. Inside Electric Keys you’ll find recreations of legendary electric pianos, electric organs, clavinets, Wurlitzers, tape samplers, and other rare and exotic electric keyboards, all of which are multi-sampled at 24-bit/96kHz (though they may be used at any standard sample rate via the 32-bit UVI playback engine). MOTU gathered up 50 well-preserved and perfectly maintained instruments from the likes of Fender, Yamaha, Korg, Roland, Hammond, Wurlitzer, Hohner, Elka, Farfisa, Mellotron, Moog, RMI, ARP, and others. Presets consist of carefully crafted multi-samples with multiple velocities, layers, and/or release samples, all streamed from disk, so even large presets load quickly and conserve computer memory.
- Samson MediaOne 3A – Talk about big sound from small speakers! These compact active monitors provide clear, accurate sound with an ultra-small footprint. They are ideal for desktop audio and video setups, and are fully AV shielded for use near any computer or video screens. These are active (powered) monitors with 15 watts of Class A/B power per side, driving surprisingly robust 3-inch woofers and 25mm tweeters. The precision-tuned, rear-vented cabinets help to provide a surprisingly robust low end for such small enclosures. Each pair includes a “master control” speaker with front-panel level control and a headphone jack. Passive crossovers utilizing a multi-pole design deliver linear response from bottom to top.
- Shure SM63 – More elegant than many traditional handheld mics, the Shure SM63 has a slightly longer, thinner body that gives it a great look on stage, up front during worship services, and particularly on-camera. Its longer design is particularly favored by broadcast and television studios not just because of its comfortable, balanced feel, but because it provides just enough extra reach to tilt easily toward interviewees during remotes. The rugged SM63’s smooth, wide frequency response is tailored for optimum speech intelligibility, making it a great choice for remote podcast interviews, or for use during live broadcasts. It includes a controlled low-frequency roll off to reduce noise from either a stand or the wind, plus Shure added a humbucking coil to make this mic practically impervious to strong hum fields such as those notoriously produced by studio lighting.
