PRODUCTS M-Audio BX-D3 Series Studio Monitors M-Audio has introduced the BX5-D3 and BX8-D3 studio reference monitors, featuring Kevlar woofers, treated silk dome tweeters, and onboard class-AB bi-amplification. The new BX-D3 range also features XLR balanced and 1/4-in. balanced/unbalanced inputs for connecting a range of different studio gear, a computer-optimized tweeter waveguide for enhanced imaging, low-end response controls to allow for placement near walls, and an onboard volume control. What separates the two ported monitors is amplifier power, driver size, and frequency re- sponse. The smaller of the two, the BX5-D3, has a 100-W amp driving a 5-in. LF driver and 1-in. tweeter with a quoted frequency response of 52 Hz to 35 kHz. The BX8-D3 has a larger 150-W amp that drives an 8-in. woofer and 1.25-in. tweeter. This larger model has a quoted response of 37 Hz up to 22 kHz. For more information, contact inMusic Canada: 877-981-9910, FAX 581-981-9913, ordercanada@inmusicbrands.com, www.inmusicbrands.com. IK Multimedia Lurssen Mastering Console Software IK Multimedia has updated its Lurssen Mastering Console for Mac/PC and iOS devices with more processing power. The software was born of a collaboration between IK Multimedia and Grammy-winning engineers Gavin Lurssen and Reuben Cohen. The Lurssen Mastering Console plug-in can be inserted in mono, stereo, and multi-channel tracks and busses in any compatible DAW as both a mastering and mixing tool. The new mono operation allows users to use the plug-in on mono tracks in regular mixing sessions or stereo busses for stem mixing or mastering duties, but it can also be used on 5.1 or even larger surround projects, depending on the DAW. The new update improves the sound quality by retaining the nuances of the original analog mastering chain while simultaneously removing the intrinsic noise of the hardware machines.
