Not an official product yet but Zoom showed me the up coming H5 compact recorder. Essentially the little brother to the popular H6. Main difference being 4-ch only, not 6-ch but the good news is that all the H6 peripherals are compatible. The unit I touched was not an actual working unit but the physical design was really nice to hold in the hand. Also note that this unit has the XLR connectors on bottom.Read More
Yamaha is now offering the HS monitor series in white, they look really nice and will match your "über" modern home. Subwoofer not included for this option.Read More
Zoom continues to offer the best audio quality for a compact video recorder with the Q4. Shaped more like a tradition video camera the Q4 has a wider lens which means you'll get even closer to your subject and that improves your audio. As you can see in the below image, the lens is wide enough so you can attach the Q4 to the head stock of your guitar. Other cool features include detachable tilt screen, 1080p and GoPro compatible mounting.
Elektron continues to innovate by making tools that change the way people create electronic music. They have created a hybrid drum machine that fused analog drum sounds with samples. It sounded beautiful and had the classic and unique Elektron step sequencer.Read More
If you are looking for some creative analog pedals Koma delivers. They have the RH301 which is a rhythm workstation, the FT201 which is an analog filter/10 step sequencer and lastly the BD101 which is an analog delay/gate. Truely mangle your sound beyond recognition! I had the guys from Koma show me the possibilities and the noise they created from a standard drum loop was ridiculous.Read More
