Sometimes the coolest products at NAMM are the hardest to spot, and guitarists visiting the Eventide booth would easily overlook this incredible pedal built for… vocalists! The MixingLink is a microphone preamp in a pedal with phantom power and an effects loop that enables vocalists to sing through Eventide effects pedals like the H9 Harmonizer, Space, or Time Factor (or anything else should they prefer).
The Mixing Link has plenty of other Swiss Army uses for guitar players as an A/B box, mini mixer, headphone practice amp, and more, but really, this thing is perfect for a vocalist who doesn’t want to be bothered by complex, multi-effect vocal processors when they just need a simple way to add an effect or two to their vocals.
People have been saying great things about the new line of monitor speakers from PreSonus, and we’ve just received the Sceptre CoActual monitors in the studio for review, but new for NAMM was the Temblor T10 subwoofer, with 250W power and a frequency response of 20 Hz — 130 Hz (with a continuously variable crossover, of course). There’s also an 80 Hz high-pass filter, and the included footswitch controls the high-pass filter bypass as well as full subwoofer bypass, too.
The sum of all tracks is… say hello to the Space Heater, a single rack space, eight-channel summing mixer with a 12ax7 tube circuit! The design conception was to provide a way to add some analog warmth to a full digital recording, for example, by sending eight of your drum tracks into the Space Heater, applying varying amounts of tube drive to each track, and then sending it back to your DAW. That’s just one of many possible uses for the innovative device. We love that you can select one of three different levels of voltage to the tube: 25, 50, or 100 volts, depending on whether or not you want some distortion or clean warmth. With an external power supply, ¼” TRS and D-sub in/outs, this could be a great “secret sauce” device for your pro studio.
With the second-generation active ambient system, the bodypack now enables stereo recording via the microphone system, so a performer can capture a live rehearsal or other performance from their own sonic perspective. Cool! Also new is a Bass Boost switch that adds 10 dB of additional low-frequency response to the mix, as well as use of the same quadaxial cable found on other Sensaphonics headphone products.
