Based upon extensive customer feedback, TVU Networks has added an audio mixing panel as a feature to its popular, cloud-based TVU Producer multi-camera, cloud production solution. With TVU Producer, novice or experienced video producers can remotely produce multi-camera live events with zero latency – even when using smartphones as production cameras.

“Our new Audio Mixing Panel has been a highly requested feature of TVU Producer, which enables anyone to produce professional video without expensive equipment or training,” said TVU Networks’ CEO Paul Shen. “The Audio Mixing Panel enables an audio production crew to manage audio production from a separate location than video production. The mixing function is extremely easy to use and gives the audio operator full control over program audio. As part of our continued expansion of remote production capabilities, this is one more piece that enables all crew – whether they’re a graphic artist, video or audio production crew, instant replay operator, commentator, or producer – to be part of a professional production operating from a safe location such as their homes.”

Paintable Subminiature Cap

Together with the new Paintable Subminiature Cap, the 6060 Subminiature Microphone is perfect for broadcast, film and theatre productions.

For bodyworn theatre situations, the cap can be quickly and easily painted and/or covered in makeup. This allows unlimited visual creativity when miking up talent. All types of paint and makeup normally used in a theatre environment can be used.

Audio-Technica, a leading innovator in transducer technology for over 50 years, announces two limited-edition iterations of its acclaimed AT2020 Cardioid Condenser Microphone featuring a reflective silver finish: the AT2020V (standard) and the AT2020USB+V (USB model). The visually striking finish is meant not only to celebrate the mic’s clear, natural sound quality, but to mirror the creative force of its user, making these mics ideal for YouTubers, livestreamers and other content creators.

These rugged side-address condensers are equipped with low-mass diaphragms custom-engineered for extended frequency response and superior transient response. The mics’ cardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of desired sound source. All models in the AT2020 mic line – the price/performance standard in side-address studio condenser microphone technology – offer a wide dynamic range and handle high SPLs with ease. Both of the limited edition V models come with AT8458a shock mounts to attenuate any noise, shock, or vibration transmitted through a mic stand, boom, or mount.

DPA Microphones’ new 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun Microphone is being widely adapted into the television and film production world as a plant mic solution. Featuring the same sonic qualities as the brand’s supercardioid 4097 CORE Choir Microphone, the compact 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun has been optimized to pick up speech from a distance.

“We spoke with professional sound engineers to find out what they needed in their toolboxes and designed the 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun as a plant mic solution to complement their other equipment,” says René Mørch, product manager, DPA Microphones. “Ideal for miking in small spaces, the 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun has a small footprint and clear audio pickup. The sonic qualities of the 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun are particularly beneficial for placing mics in inconspicuous locations as it enables location sound experts to capture sound from anywhere on set. Used in combination with our boom mics and lavaliers, the 4097 Micro Shotgun becomes the final piece of a complete microphone package to meet the needs of any TV or film production. Since the 4097 has the same sonic characteristics as all DPA mics, it is now easy to capture reliable, high-quality audio that doesn’t need dubbing or hours of mixing and post-production work.”

Featuring a hybrid modular synthesis approach, PreSonus®’ Deep Flight One instrument library for Studio One®’s Presence XT sampler draws on rare and sought-after analog and digital synthesizers and layered field recordings, sweetened with legendary and exotic signal processors, to create a huge range of organic, deep, and inspiring sounds. Use Deep Flight One’s Multi Instrument presets straight up or combine its elements any way you like to create unique instruments and effects.

Deep Flight One delivers dramatic sounds, both tonal and atonal, from field recordings; percussive sounds and tonal and atonal soundscapes from classic modular synths; and otherworldly textures of the type much sought after by TV and film composers, electronic music producers, and others seeking fresh sounds. While each multisample preset can be used as is, the real power of this instrument is in the combination of multiple layered elements. Samples are raw material to be molded with synthesizer parameters such as filters, envelopes, modulation, and effects. By using sample-start modulation, controlled in real time using velocity, no two single keystrokes sound exactly the same.
