In this video review for Production Expert, Pro Tools Expert, Technical Editor James Ivey takes a look at the new ML-32D from Tascam. A 32 channel Line Level I/O to Dante converter. James shows you around the unit, explains the connectivity and how he is using the ML-32D in his studio set up and then goes on to let you hear the unit in a short track featuring full drum kit, bass and lead guitar.
Continuing our look at the DiGiGrid Desktop Range, the natural partner to the excellent DiGiGrid D is the DiGiGrid M. A 2 in, 2 out Soundgrid IO which, having tried all the boxes in this range I have to say is my favourite. I can think of many, many tracking jobs which would be improved immensely with a bag of DiGiGrid Ms.
In this review Pro Tools Expert Team Member Julian Rodgers takes an in depth look at the DiGiGrid D, the largest of the For Desktop range from DiGiGrid.
Pro Tools Expert Audio over IP specialist Julian Rodgers looks at the Focusrite AM2 headphone amplifier. Whether as part of a RedNet system or as a high quality endpoint in a mixed Dante system simple things, if they are worth doing, are worth doing well.
Cards on the table time - I've long been a fan of Genelec - I like the sound their monitors make, and personally feel that they translate well. However I am very aware that they're not to everyone's tastes, and I've experienced quite a few installations where they've been forced into speaker locations and acoustic environments that don't help them sound their best.
