Steinberg is pleased to announce the availability of WaveLab 7.2, the latest update to the industry-standard solution for mastering, audio editing and restoration.
The 7.2 update provides seamlessly integrated remote control support for Steinberg’s advanced CI, CMC and CC121 models and also supports up to three MIDI-compatible hardware devices. Other highlights include 64-bit versions for Mac and Windows platforms, an Upload-to-SoundCloud function and an updated version of the Dirac 3.5 time-stretching and pitch-shifting algorithm. Plus, WaveLab 7.2 introduces an advanced marker handling system and several workflow and user interface improvements.
The update is now available free of charge from the Steinberg website.
As expected, Apple moved its Logic Pro music production tool to the App Store. And the results are mostly what you’d expect. The biggest change is the price: Logic gets slashed to US$199.99, while MainStage gets a so-low-you-might-as-well-try-it $29.99 sticker price.
Wave editor Soundtrack Pro, removed from Final Cut Studio, is gone here, too. Lesser-known mastering tool WaveBurner gets the axe.
Logic Pro 9 is still Logic Pro 9. Today is a minor update that you can now download via the App Store if you choose. Logic Studio remains for sale through Apple in its boxed edition, but at two hundred bucks, the App Store version is the winner.
Thunderbolt™ solution for Prism Sound Orpheus and ADA-8XR interfaces
Cambridge, UK: The recent addition of the new Thunderbolt I/O connection to Apple Mac computers means data can be transferred faster than ever - 10Gbps of bidirectional throughput plus a separate display bus.
Lightning fast speed and huge bandwidth has meant Thunderbolt can accommodate nearly any existing connection to a variety of external devices with the necessary adapter, including Prism Sound FireWire audio interfaces Orpheus and ADA-8XR.
After extensive testing on the latest Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2 operating system the Sonnet Thunderbolt Adapter passed with flying colours and will allow Prism Sound FireWire interface users to maintain the same software control and functionality they are currently benefiting from through the FireWire 800 and 400 connection.
