- Focusrite Liquid Mix 16 – Now Focusrite brings Liquid Technology to everyone at a much more accessible price. The innovative Liquid Mix 16 offers emulations of 40 compressors and 20 EQs with a FireWire Hardware controller, and at a pricepoint that’s lower than any previous Liquid Technology products. Thanks to its built-in DSP, you can have up to 16 channels of vintage or modern compression and EQ with one Focusrite Liquid Mix 16 – all without any load being placed on your computer! Liquid Mix 16 also offers a “free” mode for the compressor. Original compressors with limited or absent controls suddenly become fully featured – yours to use as you choose. Each channel appears as a separate VST/AU/RTAS effect within the sequencer and will work within all major DAW applications!
- Roland MT-90U – This multi-format music player allows instant playback from a range of different file formats for easy, flexible rehearsal options. The USB-equipped MT-90U lets you load MIDI, MP3, or WAV files, and you can practice along anywhere thanks to its built-in speaker and easy portability. You can also change the pitch and speed of your files (a great way to learn complicated passages). A wireless remote controller and microphone input are even included for karaoke fun with the MT-90U! Equipped with a USB port, the MT-90U makes the file-import process quick and easy. Students or teachers simply load in favorite songs from a USB memory key such as Roland’s new M-UF1G, or external devices such as a USB floppy-disk drive (FD-01A: sold separately) or a USB CD-ROM drive (commercially available, sold separately).
- Seymour Duncan SFX-08 Power Grid – As a guitarist, when you need power, it’s generally because you want to lay down chunky rhythms or you need to bust out with a blazing solo. Enter the Power Grid, Seymour Duncan’s newest stompbox, which is designed to provide powerful overdrive and distortion suitable for rhythm and lead playing, thanks to five stages of class A discrete circuitry, which are cascaded to provide nearly 100dB of gain. All this raw horsepower is managed by a multi-element gain and volume system that allows fine control. For example, if you crank the gain, you’ll get a very thick, saturated “modded British” distortion, reminiscent of the big guitar sounds that defined metal. But if you back the gain off, you’ll get a very responsive “crunch” distortion similar to the rhythm channel on the SFX-03 Twin Tube Classic.
