while the Apogee engineered microphone preamp gives you up to 40dB of gain. The made-in-America MiC 96k also features an all-metal construction and multicolour LED for status indication and input level monitoring as well as a control knob for quick input level adjustments. The mic is compatible with a number of DAWs including Apple’s GarageBand and Logic Pro, as well as Pro Tools.

Dave Smith Instruments Announces Tabletop Prophet 12

BASED ON Dave Smith Instruments’ (DSI) recently launched flagship Prophet 12 synth, the Prophet 12 Module boasts the same power and sound as its larger, keyboard-endowed version, but in a smaller, more transportable design. Each of the Prophet’s 12 voices is composed of a brand new hybrid digital/analogue architecture created by a digital front end (that can be used for thickening the signal, adding harmonics, or completely destroying the signal pre-filter) followed by an all-analogue signal path output. Each voice has five high-resolution oscillators, a digital character effects section, a resonant Curtis low-pass filter, a high-pass filter, a tune-able feedback circuit, a four- tap delay line with feedback per line, four loopable five-stage envelope generators, four syncable LFOs

with slew and phase offset, a sophisticated arpeggiator, and a 16-slot modulation matrix with 26 mod sources and 97 modulation destinations. The Prophet 12 Module’s streamlined intuitive

interface promotes quick and easy control of every parameter on the synth with each section able to be selected at the press of a button and edited through the OLED display. Dedicated low and high pass filters potentiometers provide quick and smooth control of filters while modulation assignments can be created using the Assign Mod buttons. Despite its comparatively diminutive dimensions,

the backpanel I/O of the Module matches that of the Prophet 12 keyboard in almost all aspects (apart from featuring an external power supply in the interests of making it as compact and portable

Meyer Sound Introduces New Stage Monitor

MEYER SOUND has expanded its on-stage solutions with the new self- powered MJF-210 low-profile high- power stage monitor. The MJF-210 is the lightest stage monitor in the company product line, and carries the sonic performance of the MJF-212A stage monitor. “The MJF-210 started with a

customer’s request to bring the intelligibility and power of the MJF- 212A into a more production-friendly package,” said Pablo Espinosa, chief loudspeaker designer and vice president of R&D. “The end result is a product that reflects users’ needs in the field, and its small footprint also offers more flexibility in bringing the myriad self-powered advantages to the stage.”

The MJF-210 features a low-

The front of the MJF-210 slopes at an optimal 40º from the stage, while the well-behaved constant directivity horn gives the performer more freedom to move on stage while staying within the wide vertical coverage. The drivers are powered by a

profile design with an impressive power-to-size ratio, and very low distortion. Each monitor measures less than 14in high and weighs 67 pounds. In

addition, it provides the sonic and practical advantages of a self-powered system, including reliability, low distortion, and ease of setup and configuration. With the amplifier
