Eventide Fission Structural Effects Plug-In Eventide has released the Fission plug-in, which features the new Structural Effects meth- od for cleanly and completely separating the transient and tonal components of a sound in a way that makes it practical to modify the individual components independently. Eventide’s proprietary Structural Effects method makes use of frequency and time domain sifting to, in effect, deconstruct a sound. Fission features multi-effects for the transient and tonal sections enabling modifications from the subtle to the odd. A Focus control makes it possible for Fission users to “guide” the separation. The ability to “solo” and mix the de- constructed audio allows for forensic and subtle changes. For example, users can modify, delay, or remove the transient plucks of a guitar part without affecting the tone; retune a snare drum without touching the crisp transient; or modify, delay, or remove the tonal component of a piano line for a more staccato sound.

Studio Technologies Model 5401 Dante Master Clock Studio Technologies has released the Model 5401 Dante master clock. The Model 5401 provides precise timing signals for applications that utilize Dante Audio-over-Ethernet media networking technology. The unit implements a high-perfor- mance IEEE 1588 precision time protocol (PTP) server, compatible with the require- ments of Dante and capable of simulta- neously supporting the timing needs of up to hundreds of Dante-compatible devices. The Model 5401 provides the PTP v1 compatibility required by Dante, as well as supporting PTP v2 for AES67 applica- tions. In addition, the unit generates up to eight sine-wave audio tones on Dante transmit (output) channels, useful during audio network installation, maintenance, and operation. A clock input connection allows the Model 5401 to synchronize with a variety of timing reference signals.
