Audirvāna audiophile music player

Audirvana Plus used to be my preferred audiophile music player until Big Sur came along and the app had some small issues. That made me look out for alternatives, but my quest wasn’t a success. And then [Audirvãna Studio] got released and I tried it out and found that it’s even better than its predecessor.… Read More Audirvāna audiophile music player

IK Multimedia’s UNO Synth Pro is nothing short of amazing

I’m used to reviewing and using high-end software synthesizers like Hexeract on the Mac and Moog 15 on the iPad, but I have limited experience with analogue synthesizers. That is why I was eager to test the IK Multimedia UNO Synth Pro. I had reviewed IK Multimedia’s UNO before and found it a nice synthesizer but it lacked the power and sophistication of polyphonic software synths. The UNO Synth Pro, though not polyphonic, is different.… Read More IK Multimedia’s UNO Synth Pro is nothing short of amazing

Hear a difference a cable makes: the SOMMER Cable Epilogue

I am sort of a cable freak, so when I read claims that a cable sounds better because it has a very, very low wire-to-wire capacitance of 35 pF, I simply must know more about it and ideally try it out for myself. And that’s how I got to test a pair of the SOMMER Cable (in some countries sold under the brand name Hicon) microphone cable with the name Epilogue which is wrapped in a bright yellow sheath and fitted out with Neutrik “SATIN” XLR connectors, which have rotated, genuine gold-plated contacts in the male and female versions… Read More Hear a difference a cable makes: the SOMMER Cable Epilogue

NUGEN Audio Paragon, convolution reverb as you’ve rarely heard before

A few weeks back, NUGEN Audio announced its Paragon plug-in with a Youtube movie. It turned out the app the company have been working on is a convolution reverb. I was keen on reviewing Paragon as NUGEN Audio is one of only a handful companies in this industry that consistently develops high-quality, high-performance audio plug-ins. And Paragon doesn’t disappoint. It operates in up to 7.1.2 audio channels and it’s Dolby Atmos compatible.… Read More NUGEN Audio Paragon, convolution reverb as you’ve rarely heard before

iZotope Neoverb creates gorgeous reverb effects in an equally gorgeous UI

iZotope’s newest reverb plug-in, Neoverb, is powered by Exponential Audio technology, and it is the touted as the most intelligent reverb plug-in for music producers up to date. And indeed, in contrast to the many, many controls of Audio Exponential’s plug-ins that lets you tweak a reverb to the insanely great, Neoverb stands out with a sober UI that still lets you access the most beautiful sounding reverberation you can imagine.… Read More iZotope Neoverb creates gorgeous reverb effects in an equally gorgeous UI

The Loupedeck Live is not just for live streamers

The Loupedeck Live that’s only recently been released is a small sibling of the Loupedeck CT. It has the touch screen, rotary knobs and eight buttons, and that’s it. The square buttons and the touch wheel of the Loupedeck CT have been left out. The unit is made of the same aluminium and sturdy plastic components as the CT model. It does come with a mountable stand, so you can position the Loupedeck Live in a 30 degree angle.… Read More The Loupedeck Live is not just for live streamers
