HOT GEAR Reloop Concorde Vibe Turntable Cartridge Reloop has partnered with Ortofon to release the Concorde Vibe, the fourth DJ turntable cartridge in the Concorde series. The Concorde Vibe is made specifically for heavy duty applications in a club environment. It is focused on achieving the highest possible sound quality from DJs’ records and the use of an elliptical stylus allows for maximum contact with the record groove, resulting in rich and detailed sound reproduction. The high output level and flat frequency response makes this cartridge ideal for club and studio use. Other features include direct SME mounting, an ideal sampling rate, and a frequency range of 20 Hz-22 kHz.

Tracktion MOK Waverazor Virtual Synth Tracktion has released the MOK Waverazor, a futuristic virtual synth that splices waveforms into twisted and aggressive new sounds. Waverazor’s oscillators slice up famil- iar waveforms and recombine them into multi-segment “Frankenstein” waveforms that provide the foundation for sonic exploration. Each segment can have different harmonic content, with individual harmonics subject to amplitude modulation at a rate and level determined by the contents of each wave fraction. Instead of modulating the entire waveform on and off, the oscillator modulates harmonics to different levels in a sequenced pattern. Waverazor’s interface features a central oscilloscope that enables precise waveform creation. Two X/Y performance controllers modulate a combination of slice parameters, while additional knobs make it possible to morph multiple parameters at once.  For more information, go to www.tracktion.com. Godin 5 th Avenue Uptown Ltd SilverGold Guitar Godin has released the 5 th Avenue Uptown Ltd SilverGold, an archtop guitar adorned top to bottom in a silver-gold metallic finish. Its resonant body has a vintage twang and growl of a late 1950s and early ‘60s archtop guitar thanks to a pair of TV Jones Classic pick- ups controlled via a three-way toggle switch. There is also a Bigsby tremolo for dynamic expression, making the guitar ideal for ɽ)Օ̰ɽ䰁չ䰁ѡȁɕ̸)=ѡȁɕ́Ցݥ䁅ɍѽ)̰ͥ䁹)ɉɐɥие͍ص)ɉɐɅ̰хɽȁͅ)Չѥ́ɽɔ)ȁɔɵѥхЁ)եхдܴܰ`дܴа)եх̹ܹեх̹(ȃ 8$84TL$ $8
