Akai Professional has announced three new Ableton Live controllers: The APC40 mkII, APC Key 25, and APC mini. In 2009, Akai Professional partnered with the creators of Ableton Live, and introduced the original Ableton Performance Controller. The APC40 raised the standards for controller design and revolutionized Ableton Live software and hardware integration. Akai Pro now unveils the reimagined APC40 mkII along with two compact Ableton Live controllers, the APC Key 25 and APC mini.
Waves and Abbey Road have released Reel ADT, the first plugin to successfully emulate Abbey Road Studios’ pioneering process of Artificial Double Tracking. The effect that would become an integral part of Abbey Road’s signature sound was initially created at the famed studios in the 1960s to meet the needs of some very special clients: The Beatles.
Waves has released MetaFilter, a multimode filter plug-in with extensive modulation options and powered by Waves’ Virtual Voltage technology. The MetaFilter creative effects unit provides all the warmth, depth and fatness of classic analog filters, along with the modern control and flexibility distinctive of Waves tools.
