Fender Custom Shop Releases Limited Edition Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster In Honor Of Woodstock 50th AnniversaryFENDER® CUSTOM SHOP RELEASES LIMITED EDITION JIMI HENDRIXTM
STRATOCASTER® IN HONOR OF WOODSTOCK 50TH ANNIVERSARY
2019 Artist Model Pays Homage to Hendrix’s Iconic Performance,
World’s Most Legendary Musical Event with Authentic “Izabella” Reproduction
HOLLYWOOD, CALIF. (August 16, 2019) – Fender Musical Instruments Corporation (FMIC) today announced the launch of its newest artist model addition: the Limited Edition Jimi HendrixTM Stratocaster; it honors rock legend Jimi Hendrix on the eve of the 50th anniversary of Woodstock, where he delivered one of the most-iconic performances in rock music that amplified the voice of a generation. With only 250 units made, this limited edition, highly collectible “Izabella” Stratocaster replica from the Fender Custom Shop celebrates this milestone in music history.
Jimi Hendrix wholly embraced the Fender Stratocaster as his preferred instrument. Of the many Stratocaster guitars that Jimi played, “Izabella” is the one with which he’s most closely associated, thanks to his searing performance of “Star Spangled Banner” at the Woodstock festival on August 18, 1969. The Woodstock festival stands as a pivotal moment in the history of American culture, and remembering the event on its 50th anniversary, the voice that rose highest, and spoke the loudest, belonged to Jimi Hendrix and Izabella. The climax of Jimi’s set was his interpretation of “Star Spangled Banner.” Never before had the national anthem been performed with such expressive ferocity. The sound of Jimi Hendrix and his Stratocaster loudly illustrated the anthem in a blazing new light.
“Jimi Hendrix playing ‘Star Spangled Banner’ at Woodstock was a cultural moment heard around the world,” said Mike Lewis, VP Product Development, Fender Custom Shop. “We’re especially excited about this release because not only is the Izabella one of the most iconic instruments of our time, it represents a moment in history that will forever be woven in our cultural make-up. The Fender Custom Shop has done tributes to many extremely meaningful artist guitars through the years, but there was an extra sense of awe and privilege in the air in recreating the Izabella.”
The Izabella Stratocaster was originally purchased at Manny’s Music on West 48th Street in New York City. It was a 1968 Olympic White Strat with an alder body and two-piece maple neck, with no “skunk stripe” and truss rod adjustment at the heel. The “F style” neck plate had the serial number 240981, which, along with the pickups and hardware, were standard 1968 issue. Significantly, the guitar featured the “big” Strat headstock with the Bob Perine-designed Fender logo and bold arced “Stratocaster” type. The headstock, when turned upside down in his hands, became an iconic emblem. Izabella was the last guitar Hendrix played with his original Jimi Hendrix Experience group, and the final guitar he ever played in concert. Izabella is displayed at MoPOP (formerly EMP Experience Music Project) in Seattle, Wash.
“This Stratocaster timestamps an amazing era and shines a spotlight on one of the most epic moments of our time,” said Janie Hendrix, CEO/President, Experience Hendrix L.L.C. and Authentic Hendrix LLC. “The unforgettable image of Jimi with his Strat on that Woodstock stage is embodied in this guitar. He changed music history with every earthshaking note he played that day. What a way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Woodstock. And we’re overwhelmed by the opportunity to join Fender in regifting the world with this beautiful recreation.”
Hundreds of hand-crafted steps went into making the Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition Jimi Hendrix™ Stratocaster authentic to the original. Priced at $6,900.00 and fully authorized by Authentic Hendrix, it captures all of the details and features of the original to allow players to harness the power of his iconic set at Woodstock 1969. This model features an Olympic White alder body with a 3-ply Parchment pickguard, as well as a flatsawn maple “`60s C”-shaped neck with a maple fingerboard, 21 vintage-style frets and nickel-plated steel .010-.046 gauge strings. To harness that epic Woodstock tone, the guitar has a 6-saddle American Vintage synchronized tremolo; three custom hand-wound ’69 single coil Strat® pickups in the bridge, middle and neck positions and a three-position blade switch with controls for Master Volume, Tone 1 (neck pickup) and Tone 2 (middle pickup). Vintage-style nickel/chrome Closet Classic hardware is featured throughout, in addition to Vintage White control knobs. Each Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster will come with a deluxe hardshell case, custom strap, custom headband, coiled cable, commemorative booklet and a Certificate of Authenticity.
The Fender Custom Shop Limited Artist Signature series celebrates the storied guitars of legendary musicians by building recreations of their instruments in exacting detail. Based on close examination of the original guitars, every nuance is noted and incorporated into the build. Reverse-engineering the model, vintage, wood, hardware, electronics, finish and player customizations are all vital to the process. Most importantly, the player’s wear patterns are recorded: every nick, scratch, gouge and bump are vital to the authenticity of the recreation–they are mapped and documented with precision.
A showpiece for any music-lover’s collection, the Limited Edition Jimi Hendrix™ Stratocaster not only preserves the memory of one of the most iconic performances in all of rock history, but it also allows fans worldwide to have a true Jimi Hendrix experience with detailed artistry and craftsmanship.

Origin Effects Launches The RevivalDRIVE CompactOrigin Effects launches the RevivalDRIVE Compact
New overdrive delivers ultra-realistic amp-like tones in a more compact, affordable and user-friendly package
Oxfordshire, UK (16th August 2019) – Origin Effects have just released the RevivalDRIVE Compact, a single-channel overdrive designed to accurately recreate a range of British and American non-master volume valve amp tones.
The RevivalDRIVE Compact condenses the groundbreaking circuit design of the original dual- channel RevivalDRIVE into a smaller, more pedalboard-friendly package. Equipped with a streamlined set of wide-ranging controls, this new pedal promises to make the RevivalDRIVE’s awesome array of amp-like tones more accessible – and affordable – than ever before.
Launched in 2018 to universal acclaim, the RevivalDRIVE houses a complete valve amp-style signal path recreated in analogue electronics, with comprehensive controls that let you explore a wealth of different amp characteristics.
“We designed the RevivalDRIVE to be as flexible as possible,” says Origin Effects founder Simon Keats. “The response we’ve had from players has been phenomenal, but we also know that not everyone wants to deal with that many knobs and switches! With the RevivalDRIVE Compact, we set out to design a pedal with the same sophisticated circuitry on the inside, but a simplified set of controls on the outside that would make it quick and easy to dial in a really great sound.”
In addition to the same amp-style circuit topology, the new RevivalDRIVE Compact features several controls lifted directly from the full-sized RevivalDRIVE. These include the Lows control, which lets you overdrive or tighten up the low end, and the More/Presence control, which varies negative feedback around the pedal’s power amp stage, changing the level of touch-sensitivity from Plexi, through to Fender, and VOX style amps. The Blend knob, which mixes the dry and overdriven signals together, has been tweaked to provide more musical results by gently reducing gain as you add in the guitar’s natural tone, while the brand-new Highs knob condenses the original RevivalDRIVE’s multiple preamp voicing modes into a single, continuous control.
The RevivalDRIVE Compact also features a simplified yet powerful Post-Drive EQ section, designed to tailor the output of the pedal to suit the voicing of the amp you’re plugging into, as well as flat-response power amps, mixers and recording interfaces.
The RevivalDRIVE Compact is available now from Origin Effects dealers worldwide and direct from www.origineffects.com.
RevivalDRIVE Compact: Key Features
Availability: Available worldwide on 16th August 2019 from Origin Effects dealers
About the RevivalDRIVE Compact
The RevivalDRIVE Compact is a versatile overdrive that captures the authentic tone, feel and response of a range of classic non-master volume valve amps.
Inside, it houses an unabridged valve amp signal path recreated in analogue electronics, including the preamp, phase inverter, push-pull power amp and rectifier stages plus a speaker-emulating reactive load.
By altering the way these stages behave and interact, the RevivalDRIVE Compact’s user-friendly controls provide instant access to a wealth of British and American amp voicings, from clean to fully cranked, while powerful EQ compensation controls will make sure it sounds great with a wide variety of amps.
Gain: sets the amount of overdrive
Output: sets the overall output level
Blend: adjusts mix from 100% overdrive to 100% dry (clean boost), simultaneously adjusting gain to maintain a musical blend of clean and overdriven signals
Lows: controls the overdrive’s low-frequency characteristics, from fat and fuzzy Tweed-style distortion to tight and defined British drive
Highs: provides continuous adjustment through a range of classic Fender- and Marshall-style preamp voicings, progressively increasing mids and highs
More/Pres (clockwise): above 12 o’clock, functions like the classic Marshall Presence knob, releasing high frequencies from the effects of negative feedback
More/Pres (counter-clockwise): below 12 o’clock, progressively reduces negative feedback around the power amp, increasing gain and altering the pedal’s transition from clean to overdriven in response to playing dynamics
Post-Drive EQ: three preset EQ curves (flat power amp, Fender Blackface, Marshall) and a continuously adjustable filter adapt the pedal’s output to suit your clean amp settings
• Ultra-high input impedance
• Silent switching
• High-quality “signal-conditioning” bypass mode • High-current, low-noise electronics
• Premium components throughout
• Advanced power supply filtering and protection • Runs off standard 9VDC adaptor
• Designed and built in England

Antelope Audio Expands Audio Interface Series With Orion Studio Synergy CoreAntelope Audio advances acclaimed audio interface series with workhorse Orion Studio Synergy Core ‘hot-rod’
SANTA MONICA, CA, USA: trailblazing pro audio manufacturer Antelope Audio is proud to announce it is taking preorders on Orion Studio Synergy Core — advancing its acclaimed audio interface series’ workhorse with ‘hot-rodded’ hardware from the ground up to include six ARM-based DSP (Digital Signal Processing) processors paired with two proprietary FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) chips, creating Antelope Audio’s state-of-the-art Synergy Core effects processing platform (producing phenomenal onboard computing power to free up host computers from running the cutting-edge company’s effects); upgraded D/A (digital-to-analogue) converters (capable of delivering 130dB dynamic range on both pairs of monitor outs) and discrete transistor mic preamps (perfectly matched to bring out the best in Antelope Audio’s acclaimed Edge and Verge modelling condenser microphones); and access to today’s fastest, most versatile data connection, ThunderboltTM 3 (with custom high-performance, low-latency drivers for Mac and Windows) — as of August 13...
As implied by the Synergy Core wording boldly blazoned across its finely refreshed, familiar front panel, Orion Studio Synergy Core cleverly lets users offload Antelope Audio effects to the audio interface itself; in turn, this frees up the host Mac or PC to record and play back more tracks, and run CPU-hungry virtual instruments and native time-based effects. Ultimately, users of Orion Studio Synergy Core can take on big projects, build intricate mixes, reduce latency, and keep their system stable — all thanks to that perfect pairing of six ARM-based DSP processors and two proprietary FPGA chips creating Antelope Audio’s state- of-the-art Synergy Core effects processing platform. Put it this way: with such staggering processing potential onboard, Orion Studio Synergy Core can comfortably accommodate any growing studio setup; after all, its effects processing capabilities have been doubled to 32 channels strips, each of which are able to host up to eight effects slots, potentially allowing for 256 effects instances in any given session!
Speaking of processing potential, Orion Studio Synergy Core comes complete with 50 of Antelope Audio’s acclaimed real-time effects on tap (https:// en.antelopeaudio.com/products/orion-studio-sc-real-time-fx/) — namely, ALT-436C (compressor); FET-A78 (FET compressor); SMT-100A (compressor); VCA-160 (compressor); Stay-Levin (compressor); FET-A76 (FET compressor); x903 (compressor/limiter); PowerFFC (compressor); BAE-1023 (EQ); NEU-PEV (passive EQ); NEU- W492 (EQ); NEU-W495 (EQ); VEQ-4K BROWN (EQ); VEQ-4K ORANGE (EQ); VEQ-4K PINK (EQ); VEQ-STU 089 (semi-parametric EQ); VEQ-STU 169 (inductor EQ); VEQ-STU 900 (semi-parametric EQ); VEQ-1A (tube EQ); VMEQ-5 (tube EQ); ClearQ (parametric EQ); VEQ-HLF (passive high/low filter); Gyraf Gyratec IX (tube mic preamp); BA-31 (mic preamp); AuraVerb (reverb); Master De Esser (de-esser); PowerEx (expander); PowerGate (gate); Plexi 59 (UK) (tube guitar amp); Bass SuperTube VR (tube guitar amp); DarkFace 65 (US) (tube guitar amp); Top30 (UK) Bright (tube guitar amp); Tweed Deluxe (US) (tube guitar amp); Overange 120 (UK) (tube guitar amp); Burnsphere (DE) Lead (tube guitar amp); Marcus II (US) Lead (tube guitar amp); Modern (US) CH3 (tube guitar amp); Rock 75 (UK) (tube guitar amp); Rock 22.10 (UK) (tube guitar amp); Darkface 65 2x12 (guitar cabinet); Top30 2x12 (guitar cabinet); Modern 4x12 (guitar cabinet); Green 2x12 (guitar cabinet); Vintage 4x12 (guitar cabinet); Green 4x12 (guitar cabinet); Caliper 50 1x10 (guitar cabinet); Bluelux 1x12 (guitar cabinet); Clst 1x12 (guitar cabinet); England 4x12 (guitar cabinet); and Bass Tube 1x15 (guitar cabinet). All told, that is a sizeable collection of top-tier compressors, EQs, and mic preamp emulations, plus guitar amp and cabinet models, and more with which to bring tracks to life! Let it be said: since Synergy Core architecture allows access to the processing muscle power users could conceivably want to simultaneously run as many of those acclaimed real-time effects that their sessions could conceivably need, heavy lifting clearly comes naturally to Orion Studio Synergy Core!
But back, briefly, to that finely refreshed, familiar front panel; there the ThunderboltTM and USB interface with 12 Mic Preamps wording makes Orion Studio Synergy Core’s raison d’être perfectly plain for all to see. Perfectly positioned as a cross-platform audio interface, Orion Studio Synergy Core offers both ThunderboltTM 3 and USB (Universal Serial Bus) 2.0 connections to the DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) host computer — complete with custom high-performance, low-latency drivers for both Mac and Windows. With ThunderboltTM 3, it is even possible to power/charge an Apple MacBook directly from the audio interface itself!
When it comes to working with Orion Studio Synergy Core, however, hearing is believing. After all, those 12 mic preamps are based on Antelope Audio’s Discrete MP (https://en.antelopeaudio.com/products/edge-strip/), a Discrete Dual Ultra-Linear Microphone Preamp, while Orion Studio Synergy Core’s Accusonic 3D modelling engine lets users transform Antelope Audio’s acclaimed Edge (https://en.antelopeaudio.com/edge-family/) and Verge (https:// en.antelopeaudio.com/products/verge/) modelling condenser microphones into expensive-sounding replicas. And anyone recording line-level signals need not fret for Orion Studio Synergy Core’s Direct In function hard-bypasses the mic preamps themselves, so signals sail straight into the A/D converters with 124dB DNR. Do not fear, for Orion Studio Synergy Core far from disappoints in the D/A department, delivering 130dB DNR on both pairs of monitor outs (MONITOR A and MONITOR B), which can run simultaneously or in A/B mode. Whatever way Orion Studio Synergy Core users choose to record, though, the truth is in there!
That’s not all. As the soon-to-be ‘brain’ behind professional studio setups the world over, Orion Studio Synergy Core provides robust, flexible tools for routing and monitoring, so sending audio anywhere with the digital patch bay and latency-free mixer made easily accessible via its software control panel is a given. Globally, top-tier recording and broadcast facilities rely on Antelope Audio's renowned rock-solid audio clocks; with its world-class WC (Word Clock) IN and OUT, Orion Studio Synergy Core similarly syncs studio setups with the cutting-edge company’s 4th Generation Acoustically Focused Clocking technology, employing 64-bit DDS (Direct Digital Synthesis) to keep audio in lockstep at up to 192 kHz!
Clearly, then, those ThunderboltTM and USB connections combined with 12 of Antelope Audio’s discrete mic preamps, extensive analogue and digital I/O totalling 30 simultaneous inputs and 22 simultaneous outputs (including DC-coupled I/O for CV control of analogue modular synths), upgraded D/A conversion, and unprecedented onboard processing power with access to those 50 included real-time effects make for a well-oiled machine like no other audio interface in its class. To power up Orion Studio Synergy Core is to see and hear this ‘hot-rodded’ workhorse make light work of any recording or mixing project put in its (superior signal) path!
Orion Studio Synergy Core is available for preorder — priced at an RRP of $2,795.00 USD — through Antelope Audio’s growing global network of authorised dealers (https://en.antelopeaudio.com/dealers/). Or order online directly from Antelope Audio via the dedicated Orion Studio Synergy Core webpage (https://en.antelopeaudio.com/products/orion-studio-sc/), which also includes more in-depth information.

SonoTone Premium Guitar StringsExhilarating Tones: SonoTone Launches Line of Premium, American-Made Guitar Strings
SonoTone strings usher in a new era of balanced tone, longevity and expressiveness for guitarists
Allston, Massachusetts, August 13, 2019 — When P.K. Pandey — the founder of Allston, Massachusetts-based premium string manufacturer SonoTone — set off on his personal quest to create strings that would recreate the cherished vintage guitar tones of his memories, he had no intention of selling them to anybody else or starting a new business. But after developing precisely the right formula — which included the use of premium metals and a painstaking manufacturing processes — and subsequently sharing them with a few friends, who happen to be famous guitar players, Pandey changed his mind. The time had come to introduce premium strings to the market that enhance an instrument’s fidelity, resonance and feel.
Now available at www.sono-tone.com for electric, acoustic and bass guitars in several different gauges, SonoTone premium strings combine time-tested American craftsmanship with a modern approach to meet the needs of today’s guitar player. Each set of strings is handcrafted with the intention of inspiring guitar and bass players to play their instruments longer — and to keep making music — by providing unparalleled tone and feel across a range of playing styles.
Vintage tone from a bygone era
P.K. Pandey, who made his career as a professional recording studio engineer and A/V systems design/build engineer (AVNSYS), was deeply inspired by the authentic vintage tones of the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s. With the discerning ear of a recording engineer, he began making premium strings for himself in 2014 to achieve the elusive tone and feel he sought to record and reproduce.
“I was disappointed in the results I was getting from all the current strings on the market,” Pandey said. “I played everything and felt like the market for guitar strings had become embarrassingly commoditized. I was searching for strings that would have a more refined resonance, greater balance and longer sustain.”
”I remember when I was a kid, the strings were better,” Pandey continued. “Since there were fewer choices back then, I feel like manufacturers made strings with intention — with the highest quality materials and workmanship that was possible at the time. But times changed, and I just wasn’t getting the kind of tones I wanted from the strings available nowadays. So, I said, ‘There’s got to be a better way.’“
Pandey started researching different formulations for guitar string designs, from wrap and core materials to winding techniques, and adjusted the variables accordingly. “Eventually, I found some strings that were just ridiculous — they performed phenomenally better to my ears,” Pandey said, “On all guitars, the strings behaved differently with each guitar, increasing the resonance.”
Sharing with (legendary) friends
Once Pandey had his proprietary string-manufacturing formula, he had no intentions of sharing his “secret sauce” with anyone. But, one day, he received a call from his good friend, guitarist Joe Perry, who was complaining about the strings he was using at the time. He said they sounded dead or kept breaking, and that all the alternatives on the market were not sufficient. Pandey sent a set to Perry, and immediately after putting them through their paces, Perry subsequently asked for enough packs to take on a world-tour with Aerosmith — which effectively became the real-world beta test for SonoTone strings. Pandey even developed a custom set for Perry to use on certain songs where he needed more acoustic tones from his Gibson ES-Les Paul guitars.
It was at that point which Pandey decided it was time to develop a brand identity, master the manufacturing process and design professional packaging for his strings. “Perry has been playing with SonoTone strings ever since,” says Pandey. “I really value Joe’s opinions and insights, since he’s so brutally honest.”
Now available: SonoTone premium strings
Not long after supplying Joe Perry with his first bulk-supply of SonoTone strings, Pandey has since had others reach out — including Jeff Beck, whose tech also ordered a set after speaking to Perry’s team. “I’ve sent hundreds of packs to Jeff Beck since,” Pandey said. “I now make him two different custom gauge sets, which he played with on his last tour. Jeff said, ‘I haven’t popped one yet!’”
Now available for $18.99 for guitar (acoustic/electric) or $69.99 for electric bass on www.sono-tone.com, guitar and bass players seeking to increase the resonance and fidelity of their instrument can purchase SonoTone strings, which are available in different formulas to help serious players master the art of their sound. Visitors can also check out dozens of product demonstrations available on SonoTone’s website before buying to find the right set of strings, no matter their playing style.
Please visit to www.sono-tone.com for more information.
SonoTone is a small batch high-quality string manufacturer based in Massachusetts. In a world of commoditized, all-purpose guitar strings sold to the mass market, SonoTone strings are authentic, comfortable and expressive and sold directly to the customer.

WAM Partners With Disney & Dolby On First-Ever Sound For Picture Conference For Women In LAWAM PARTNERS WITH DISNEY & DOLBY ON FIRST-EVER SOUND FOR PICTURE CONFERENCE FOR WOMEN IN LA
Top Post-Production Professionals from Disney Animation, Dolby Laboratories, Skywalker Sound, and more Featured at Nonprofit’s Award-Winning Training
(San Francisco, CA – August 14, 2019) – Women’s Audio Mission (WAM) is proud to present WAMCon Los Angeles: Sound for Picture in partnership with Disney Animation Studios and Dolby this August, as part of their in-demand recording arts conference series. Sponsored by industry heavy-hitters like Dolby, Disney, Spotify, Eventide, iZotope, Epidemic Sound, Shure, and Universal Audio, WAMCon Los Angeles: Sound for Picture is WAM’s first conference on sound for animation, film, television, and games.
WAMCon Los Angeles features top industry professionals like Academy Award-winning Re-Recording mixer Lora Hirschberg (Captain Marvel, The Lion King), four-time Emmy Award-winning Supervising Sound Editor/Re-recording Mixer Onnalee Blank (Game of Thrones), nine-time Emmy award-winning Re-recording Mixer David Fluhr (Moana, Frozen II), VP of Post Production at Disney Animation Studios Berenice Robinson, Head of Editorial at Disney Animation Studios Fabienne Rawley, and Kate Finan of Boom Box Post. WAMCon features workshops and demonstrations spanning a range of topics in sound for picture, including a behind-the-scenes Dolby Atmos® mixing forFilm workshop at the company’s state-of-the-art Screening Room in Burbank with Jurgen Scharpf (Lead Audio Mixer, Dolby Laboratories).
“Women on the technical-side of the entertainment industry remain vastly underrepresented, which means we aren’t in the production environments to make sure our perspectives are represented,” said WAM Executive Director Terri Winston. “We designed WAMCon LA: Sound for Picture, to support more women and gender non-conforming individuals in this industry and to connect them to the top post-production professionals, so that they are trained and mentored by the best.”
WAM trains over 2,000 women and girls a year in music production and the recording arts to address the critical lack of women in the audio industry.

Part Live Sound Console, Loudspeaker Management System, and Four Channel, Four-Deck Serato DJ Pro Controller, the DJ-707M Offers Working Mobile DJs a Compact, All-In-One Event Audio Solution
Los Angeles, CA, August 13, 2019 — Roland, a leading manufacturer and distributor of electronic musical instruments and professional video products, announces the DJ-707M DJ Controller — a four-channel, four-deck Serato DJ Pro controller engineered for the perfect balance of functionality and portability. DJs searching for more than song mixing now have tools to manage complex event audio requirements, all-in-one with the powerful benefits of a portable live sound audio console, loudspeaker management system, and fully-fledged performance DJ controller. The DJ-707M will be available in the U.S. in August 2019 for $999.
Designed in consultation with leading event DJs, the DJ-707M is built to efficiently manage the wide-ranging needs of mobile DJs. The compact controller packs more specifications than larger, bulky controllers and the reinforced internal and external metal parts ensure it can withstand life on the road. Plus, its compact size allows it to sit between turntables and DJ media players, and it is DVS Upgrade ready for component DJ set-ups.
DJ-707M’s built-in 24-bit/48 kHz audio interface and high-end Roland D/A conversion for Master, Booth, and Zone outputs — loudspeaker management that includes separate 4-Band output EQ, multiband compressor and limiter on each — ensure working DJs deliver loud, clean sound. Built-in automatic feedback suppression listens for and anticipates feedback, adjusting speaker output automatically and preventing disruptions. Each assignable output’s separate EQ, multiband compressor, and limiter output settings can also be saved and recalled with 10 Scene Presets.
The DJ-707M features seven inputs, including front mounted auxiliary inputs for easily connecting instruments from guest musicians or two additional microphones. Built with the DNA of a professional audio console, the DJ-707M features two studio-quality XLR microphone inputs. Each channel also has its own gain, low-cut switch, and noise gate, plus effects from reverbs and delays to key-based auto-pitching and auto-ducking. Dual USB inputs allow up to two instances of Serato to be run on separate computers, creating seamless transitions between DJs or backup rigs. Its USB input can also be used to connect an iOS device for music playback.
Dedicated Serato DJ Pro controls allow for creation and triggering of hot cues, loops, effects, drum patterns, and samples, plus switching between four Serato decks. Roland’s hardware effects can be assigned individually to the dedicated hardware Filter/FX knob to finesse blends or accentuate scratches. DJ-707M’s standalone mixer allows computer-free performance using CDJs, turntables, mics, and more.
Driven by the sound of Roland’s TR-909 and TR-808 drum machines, the DJ-707M also contains launchable preset rhythms for adding punch to classic tracks, crafting transitions, or creating accompaniment for instrumentalists. Other on-board OSC sound effects include sweepers and synth stabs.

Dynaudio Launches Custom Install Product Bonanza At CEDIA Expo 2019Dynaudio Launches Custom Install Product Bonanza at CEDIA Expo 2019
The New Performance Series In-Wall and In-Ceiling Custom Installation Models and New Outdoor Speakers Deliver a Great Installation Experience and Superior Sound Quality
NORTHBROOK, Ill. — Aug. 14, 2019 — Danish loudspeaker legend Dynaudio iwill be showcasing a salvo of new products at this year's CEDIA Expo 2019 in Denver. The company is taking the wraps off its Performance range, a brand-new, slimline product family comprising high-end in-wall and in-ceiling custom-installation speakers, plus a special fire-resistant back-box. Dynaudio also announced two new outdoor loudspeaker models, its first-ever offerings in this category. All these products use the same technologies and undergo the same expert tuning process as Dynaudio's legendary home, professional, and in-car systems.
Dynaudio Performance Series In-Wall and In-Ceiling Speakers
The new Performance range marks the entry point to the award-winning Dynaudio Custom Installation product lineup. It was designed to deliver high-quality sound in distributed audio, media room, and other architectural audio applications.
"We want to make it as easy as possible for installers to do their jobs efficiently and effectively, which is why we've kept our entire Performance range super-simple to specify and install," said Andrew Werdean, president, Americas, Dynaudio. "Most of all, we want their clients to experience incredible sound quality and truly enjoy music and films as they were meant to be heard. These new products make it even easier for installers to achieve both."
For installers, specifying Dynaudio Performance speakers means not having to choose between deep or shallow versions of in-wall and in-ceiling speakers: The new lineup keeps things simple with just one relatively shallow depth. They also no longer have to compromise between fit and performance. Every Performance speaker installs perfectly the first time and simply delivers high-quality audio.
The rectangular in-wall speakers are a simple one-piece design that slots into place and is secured simply by tightening the special doglegs that grip the drywall. The round in-ceiling speakers make installation even simpler with no tools to install; users can just fit the frame and simply twist the speaker module to lock it into place.
The Dynaudio Performance Series is comprised of:
• P4-W65 in-wall speaker (28mm soft-dome tweeter, 6.5-inch MSP woofer), MSRP $399 each
• P4-W80 in-wall speaker (28mm soft-dome tweeter, 8-inch MSP woofer), MSRP $499 each
• P4-C65 in-ceiling speaker (28mm soft-dome tweeter, 6.5-inch MSP woofer), MSRP $399 each
• P4-DVC65 in-ceiling speaker (two 28mm soft-dome tweeters, 6.5-inch MSP woofer), MSRP $449 each
• P4-C80 in-ceiling speaker (28mm soft-dome tweeter, 8-inch MSP woofer), MSRP $449 each
• P4-LCR50 in-wall LCR speaker (28mm soft-dome tweeter, two 5-inch woofers), MSRP $599 each
There is also an accompanying shallow-depth, fire-proof metal back box packed with Morgan Superwool to provide one hour of protection. The box mounts onto standard 16-inch-on-center studs.
Dynaudio Custom Outdoor Speakers
Dynaudio has also announced two new outdoor speakers: the OW-6, with a 28mm soft-dome tweeter and a 6.5-inch woofer; and the OW-8, with a 28mm tweeter and an 8-inch woofer. They can be connected to a regular amplifier as a pair of passive 8Ω speakers or daisy-chained on a single 70V/100V system by using the selector on the rear. This is an ideal feature for outdoor spaces or commercial applications where multiple speakers are needed to create a consistent sound level across a larger area.
The OW-6 and OW-8 are both IP65-rated, enabling them to withstand everything but a high-pressure jet-washer, and they can operate in temperatures from -27.4 °F to 104 °F (-33 °C to 40 °C). Each OW-6 is available for $499, and the OW-8 is $649. Both models are offered in black or white and include articulating wall-mount brackets.
