VIDEO: One Man’s Adverture at the 2012 Frankfurt Musikmesse
By Andrea Pejrolo
Back in March I attended the Frankfurt Musikmesse. Beside having a wonderful time visiting Munich and other German attractions (and yes, including sampling some great food and beer!), I had the chance to witness first hand some of the newest products in digital audio production. iPad/iPhone software and hardware were definitely one of the hottest items at the show and there were several solutions and products that I found particularly interesting such as:
– Alesis IOMix (8 track, 4 Channel recorder mixer for iPad)
– Neyrinck V-Control Pro
– Sonoma Wireworks Studio Track, Four Track (for iPhone), Guitar Tone Amp simulator
– RME Fireface UCX audio interface for iPad and Mac
– Blue Mic Sparkdigital for iPad
For the audio/production fans that couldn’t be there, I put together this video with the highlights from the Musikmesse 2012.
Enjoy and please send me feedback regarding your favorite products!
