Do SC-Carbokab 225 and EMC-QUAD-EGB1 improve sound recordings?

When I reviewed SOMMER CABLE’s Epilogue, one of the best XLR (balanced; microphone) cables for studio monitors you can buy, I read a press release about two of their other cables.

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

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.

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
