As UK-based Rycote is the industry-standard specialist in shock & wind protection for field production sound, I took their Softie Duo-Lyre Mount with pistol grip handle to the test with the Deity S-Mic 2. The microphone came with only a basic plastic mount that I suspected to transmit all the vibrations and bumps it could possibly suffer from common, daily usage.
Revoice Pro is used worldwide by audio professionals for adjustment and alignment of vocals, instruments and ADR as well as double track generation. I tested the app using several recordings from audio as well as video sources.
The second in the series on what could possibly go wrong starts with something that isn't directly related to the inner workings of tech products. I'm trying to sell a Wacom Intuos Pro Paper Edition Large graphics tablet for 300 Euros. It's a brand new tablet in the original box, of course and I'm selling …
The Illuminati light meter (links to review) is a Bluetooth light meter – in fact, it's the only Bluetooth one on the market so far – that you control through an app on an iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch. The app is also available on Android, but as I only have an iOS device I'm going to …

It’s been a while since I reviewed Alien Skin’s Exposure app, so I took it upon me to give Exposure X4 a good look and what I found was an app that combines strong MAM features with an attractive feature set for adjusting and creatively editing images.
RX Advanced is iZotope’s flagship audio editor that started out as a sound correction/fixing application. A couple of versions ago, the app became a true editor with the ability to record and edit audio, and to fix, correct and adjust using a sophisticated machine learning algorithm. As with all technology, the app continuously evolves and improves, and the latest version, RX 7 Advanced, is now capable of intelligently identifying vocals, bass, percussion and other instruments in a mix. In addition, RX 7 Advanced now also supports surround sound in addition to mono and stereo.
