Waves makes movements with new Brauer Motion plugin

Waves makes movements with new Brauer Motion plugin

Waves Audio is now shipping the Brauer Motion plugin, a spherical auto-panner developed together with Grammy-winning mix engineer Michael Brauer.

The Waves Brauer Motion plugin allows users to create a world of movement inside a mix with up-to-360-degree auto-panning. The feature works especially well on rhythmic tracks such as percussion and acoustic guitar, on swelling pads and organs, or to achieve subtle or drastic panning movement.

As the man behind top-selling albums from Coldplay, John Mayer, Dave Matthews Band, Florence and the Machine, Bob Dylan, Hall & Oates, Aretha Franklin and many more, Brauer has a deep understanding of how movement can be used to energise a mix.

The plugin comes with four different panning modes to direct the motion of the sound; four different trigger modes for a variety of on/off options; two separate panners with full control; a dynamics section; pre-delay, motion filter, and precise control over the speed, width and depth; and a master section with gain and wet/dry controls.

The Brauer Motion plugin also includes presets from top mixing engineers, including Michael Brauer, Dave Pensado, Mark Ralph, Ross Hogarth, Tom Elmhirst, Tony Maserati and Yoad Nevo.

A brief introduction to Waves' new Brauer Motion plugin can be viewed below:

Inside the transformational AV duo of Paula Temple and Jem the Misfit

Paula Temple and Jem the Misfit are working on the latest iteration of a project about transformation. It melts and fragments, crystallizes and forms, from its rich palette of hybridized techno and ambient textures, sonic and visual alike. And now, it’s set to be involved in some way in transformation beyond just the confines of a single performance – as a statement about what society might do differently and how artists can contribute. With NODE Forum in Frankfurt am Main, Germany at the end of the month, the duo will premiere Nonagon II, a sequel to their stunning 2014 AV ...

Platform is finally a desk made for electronic musicians, engineered by an architect

It’s often overlooked, but the one piece of technology that has advanced the least in electronic music making in the past decades might be … the furniture. Output, whom regular readers will know mainly as a software instrument maker, have decided to make something that’s harder – as in a desk. PLATFORM is a simple but elegant design at an affordable price that ticks a lot of boxes of things musicians have tended to miss. It’s a chance to upgrade from IKEA-level studio gear without spending too much more money. And it’s surprisingly sensible. You’ve seen desks that look roughly ...

This free B-side from Machinedrum is the perfect thing for the solstice

Ready to raise your energy level and channel your higher self on the longest day of the year? (Or the shortest day of the year, if you’re in the southern hemisphere?) Machinedrum (the artist, not the Elektron box) has quietly released the track that has the perfect vibe for that – even if you didn’t spot the track name. And it’s now a free download. It’s short, but otherwise sounds as much hit single as b-side, warm, friendly, and uncomplicated – genius. You might put it on repeat as instant anti-depressant. Enjoy! THE HIGHER SELF OF A PERSON IS SEEN ...

Quincy update – RoGame Software add Ableton Link support in their generative music composition app

I included Quincy (currently UK£3.99/US$4.99) from RoGame Software in my iOS generative music apps roundup a while ago. Quincy is a sort of abstract ambient music generator and the app uses an underlying algorithm that is based upon the Game of Life pattern generation process.

RME ARC USB, Digiface USB out now in the UK

RME ARC USB, Digiface USB out now in the UK

First launched at NAMM 2017, the new ARC USB controller and Digiface USB interface from RME are now available in the UK through Synthax Audio.

The ARC (Advanced Remote Control) USB is an ideal companion to the recently introduced Fireface UFX+ audio interface as well as the company’s TotalMix FX routing and mixing software. It can also work with any RME audio interface that is currently compatible with the latest drivers supporting TotalMix FX – includes interfaces that were released as far back as 2001 – offering intuitive control over the interface’s DSP-based routing and effects section.

Operating as a UAC 1 class device, the new ARC USB can be used with Windows and Mac OS X. As soon as the ARC USB is present in the operating system,TotaIMix FX will automatically detect and communicate with the controller. Any hardware that uses TotalMix FX can be controlled, from a PCI-based Multiface up to the latest Fireface UFX+. The latter includes direct connectivity for both online and stand-alone operation.

The ARC USB features a jog wheel, 15 freely assignable, illuminated buttons, as well as a TS (Tip/Sleeve) connector for a foot switch that can be assigned individually. The RME ARC USB can also control multiple units simultaneously.

The "extremely compact" Digiface USB portable digital audio interface features four optical ADAT/SPDIF I/O and a high-quality analogue line/phones output via TRS for Mac and PC USB 2 devices.

It offers 32 channels of I/O, while the analogue output hosts channels 33 and 34, and can be used freely in conjunction with the included TotalMix software. It is also bus-powered, meaning no external power supply is required for the unit.

Each single optical port on the Digiface USB can use either ADAT optical (up to eight channels) or S/PDIF (stereo). While the inputs adapt automatically to the incoming signal format, the outputs can be individually switched between ADAT and S/PDIF operation.

The interface supports both SMUX and SMUX4; as such, an eight-channel audio stream at 192 kHz can be accommodated via 4 x S/PDIF or ADAT on both the inputs and outputs.

Nitelites becomes L-Acoustics’ latest K1 partner

Nitelites becomes L-Acoustics' latest K1 partner

Newcastle-based Nitelites has become the latest certified L-Acoustics K1 partner, with the UK rental company having recently taken delivery of a full K1 system.

Nitelites – which was founded in 1983 – plans, designs and delivers events both in the UK and around Europe, while the company says this latest investment in K1 underlines its continued commitment to steady expansion.

The firm's new K1 system, which comprises 48 K1, 24 K1-SB and 24 x KS28, compliments its existing stock of K2, KARA, SB28 and ARCS II cabinets and LA12X amplified controllers with LA-RAK II.

Jochen Frohn, director for business development at L-Acoustics explained: “The Nitelites team have already shown their expertise and success, deploying L-Acoustics K2 systems for prestigious events. As their expertise and client base grew, they were getting requests for a stadium sized PA. Nitelites has consistently impressed us with their technical proficiency and commercial strategy, and we are happy to have Nitelites as part of our K1 network of partners.”

“We’re very well known for our concert touring business,” added Nitelites’ Andy Magee. “But we also work on sporting events such as the Great North Run, where, overnight, we fly a mile of line array into the centre of Newcastle. Likewise, we provide sound to big art installations and an increasing number of bespoke touring solutions, such as a 6.1 system for 10,000 people we supplied for the Lumier Festival in Durham. Increasing our offering of L-Acoustics with K1 means we are able to expand all areas our business further and we’re looking forward to working with the K1 network in the UK.”

Nitelites K1 has already made a difference at We Are FSTVL, where the company upped the number of stages it supplied from three to eight for this year’s May bank holiday weekend in Upminster, London.
