Stanton Hosts DJ Performances at 2013 NAMM Show

DJ Young 1 to Spin at Gibson Pro Audio Booth

Stanton®, part of the Gibson Pro Audio division, and an industry leader in the design and manufacture of professional audio products for DJs, is bringing the future of DJ gear and talent to the attendees of the 2013 NAMM Show, where the company will host performances by some of the industry’s top DJ’s. Headlining the schedule of events will be DJ Young 1, performing in the Gibson Pro Audio booth (Room # 303AB – Level 3) on Saturday, January 26 at 1:00 p.m.

During the event, DJ Young 1 will take the stage and mix beats from a variety of genres—including hip-hop, top 40, reggae, electro/club, neo house and deep house—all on the SCS.4DJ Complete Digital DJ System, one of Stanton’s latest offerings. Just 10 years old, DJ Young 1 is the youngest Advanced level student of Jam Master Jay’s Scratch Academy in Los Angeles, where she continues to hone her craft. She has spun her magic at a diverse range of venues, including the San Francisco Supper Club, The Palms (Los Angeles), Leige (Oakland) and The New Parish (Oakland). She has also lent her talents to special performances for San Francisco Pride Day, DJ Spark’s Birthday Bash, and the WNBA Los Angeles Sparks MVP Picnic.

Like DJ Young 1, Stanton’s SCS.4DJ is a game changer for the industry—the first fully integrated DJ solution capable of providing the functionality and performance demanded by today’s music enthusiasts, professional DJs and artists. Powered by state-of-the-art processors, the SCS.4DJ removes the need for an external computer during performances. Users can simply plug in a storage device and start mixing with the built-in decks, mixer and high-resolution color display.

Additional performances by Stanton artists will be posted daily at the Gibson booth -Room # 303AB.

Earthworks Launching 500 Series Preamp at NAMM

Milford, NH, January 21, 2013 –Earthworks will introduce its first 500 Series module, the 521 ZDT at the 2013 NAMM show this week in Anaheim, CA (Booth 6882).

Based on the ZDT Preamp technology designed by David Blackmer, the 521 ZDT brings the exacting standards of the Zero Distortion Technology preamplifiers to the convenient 500 series format, providing a “wire with gain” option to the 500 series rack.

The solid state ZDT 521 features switchable phantom power, polarity invert, and peak amplitude clip detection, just as in the original 1021 single channel ZDT Preamp. The transformerless output stage of 521 ZDT will easily drive long cable runs without loss of quality, making it ideal for remote recordings. Transparent gain is switchable from 5dB to 60dB in 5dB steps.

The Earthworks mic amp topology provides outstanding common mode rejection, excellent overload margin and an incredibly low noise floor, combined with the ultra wide bandwidth of the ZDT Preamps (1Hz to 200kHz +0.5dB) and distortion of less than 1 part per million (0.0001%). This exceptional level of performance is maintained over an extensive range of impedances applied to the input, making the 521 ZDT suitable for practically any microphone – ribbon, dynamic or condenser.

The 521 ZDT is expected to ship Spring 2013.

The Music Producers Guild Holds Its Second Q-Time Event

 

The Music Producers Guild’s Q-Time event proved its popularity with its second outing at The Hospital Club in London’s Covent Garden.

Nearly 100 people filled the room on the first floor of Dave Stewart’s members’ club to listen to and contributed to the debate on pressing issues affecting music producers, artists, recording engineers, mixers and all those involved in the production of recorded music.

The panel comprised producer-of-the-moment Jake Gosling (Ed Sheeran, Paloma Faith, One Direction); independent thinker and New Music Strategist, Andrew Dubber; producer, songwriter, DJ and multi-instrumentalist, Tommy D; producer manager Ros Earls (140 dB Management, representing Alan Moulder, Flood, Gil Norton, Steve Osborne) and Nude Records creator, Saul Galpern (Suede, Ultrasound, Black Box Recorder). BBC 6 Music presenter and singer/song-writer, Tom Robinson guided, supported and moderated the event with professional skill and good judgement.

Topics ranged from the government failure to recognise the music industry as “creative”, the audio quality of digital music files, the continuing closures of major UK recording studios and the effects of reduced revenue of recorded music sales on the incomes of producers and non-performing songwriters.

The debate was informed, entertaining and vital and the chairman’s direction ensured an active participation from the attentive audience.

The event was recorded and will be made available in full to MPG members via the website: www.mpg.org.uk.

The next Q-Time event is confirmed for April 8th, again at The Hospital Club, and the panel will include Guardian journalist and singer-songwriter Helienne Lindvall; CEO of UK Music, Jo Dipple; the Liberal-Democrat spokesman for Culture, Media and Sport, Lord Timothy Clement-Jones, and senior economics director of Spotify, Will Page.

Tickets will be available from the MPG website.
