- Heavyocity Evolve – With nearly 6 gigabytes of data containing 3,900+ 24-/16-bit samples sets, Evolve’s goal is nothing less than to completely reinvent sound design and the virtual instrument. This collection of sounds and instruments was created by TV and video game composers Heavy Music and Sound Design, not some “wannabes.” Evolve is not content to be “just another ho-hum collection of instruments” – it offers a selection of instruments and sounds that empower all composers, with rhythmic percussion and stunning tonality that will blow open the floodgates of their creativity. Evolve is fast becoming a favorite for scoring for film and TV, and it’s certain to become a favorite of yours, as well. Honestly, don’t you think it’s time for your sound library to Evolve?
- JBL EON305 – This passive full-range 15″ PA loudspeaker is built to handle plenty of power and to provide clean, full sound reproduction – all from an amazingly lightweight enclosure! The EON305 features a superior quality 15″ low-frequency driver and 1″ neodymium compression tweeter, as well as JBL’s SonicGuard HF protection circuit, “daisy-chain” functionality for adding additional speakers, and integrated inserts for suspension-mounting applications. You also get handy, dependable NL4 and 1/4″ input connectors. EON has long been synonymous with portability; one person can easily lift, load, and mount an EON system virtually anywhere. Deep-welled full-size handles feature ergonomically designed grip points, while balanced weight distribution and composite enclosures make EON truly one of the lightest and easiest sound-reinforcement systems to transport and set up.
