  6. Eastwood Guitars introduces two new upgraded versions of the popular Airline Jupiter: the Airline Jupiter PRO and the Jupiter PRO Dallas Green Signature.

  10. Following a year of intense instrument modelling deep inside XILS-lab’s ear-opening laboratories, the XILS V+ virtual instrument and effects plug-in has finally emerged, sounding nigh on indistinguishable from an instantly-recognisable keyboard vocoder classic much loved by both contemporary and acclaimed artists alike.

Vocoders arguably had their musical heyday in the Seventies with the lik

  16. According to Radial Sales Manager Roc Bubel: "When we started building 500 series products our primary goal was to solidify the standard so that we would create a bunch of useful modules.

The latest in our series is the PreMax. This is designed to bring greater density and affordability to the 500 series format by combining a preamp and EQ into a single space module.

  20. The value of the Vari-Chain™ System is that it solves two problems that have bedeviled guitarists for years: Configurable Length is important because it eliminates unused power plugs, which can short out a pedalboard system—causing a sudden loss of power in mid-gig. Vari-Chain™ eliminates this risk by configuring to power a specific number of pedals. Right-Angle Plugs save space on pedalboards, but are not ideal when plugging multiple power chain cable together. The resulting right angle “corner” at the junction inhibits threading power throughout the pedalboard. Vari-Chain™ solves bot
