TSL To Introduce Surround Zone2 At CABSAT 2014

News Image
TSL Products is to introduce the new Surround Zone2 DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) plug-in and ST450 MKII Surround Sound Microphone System at this year's CABSAT (Hall 8, Stand B8-20).
The SurroundZone2 plug-in unlocks information captured by SoundField microphone systems, providing control over a range of microphone parameters from a single intuitive user interface.
The MKII version of the popular ST450 battery-powered surround microphone system delivers a new mic pre design with improved metering functions.
"The new SurroundZone2 plug-in and the ST450 MKII microphone system were developed based on extensive industry feedback as to what the professional production community needs to better complete broadcasts and programming," says Pieter Schillebeeckx, Product Manager of SoundField for TSL Products.
"The main focus throughout the development of these products was ease of use across the most popular Digital Audio Workstations, both from a usage and a set-up perspective."
SurroundZone2 supports Stereo (Mono) and surround sound formats including 5.0, 5.1, 6.0, 6.1, 7.0, 7.1 and SoundField's proprietary B-Format (for SPS200 A-Format input only) outputs.
Available Controls include Input and Output trims, Hi-Pass Input filter, Mic Orientation: End-Fire and Invert, Solo and Mutes for the Individual outputs, Rotate, Snap Tilt (individual front and rear tilt) and Zoom, Individual Width Controls and Individual Polar Pattern Controls. The plug-in is available in AAX Native and VST (both 32-bit and 64-bit, for PC and Mac) and AU (both 32-bit and 64-bit for Mac).
The new ST450 MKII further refines the design of the electronics in the original ST450 preamp package. The new mic-pre design allows for 3dB gain steps, replacing the 6dB steps of the original. The overall available gain has been increased from 30dB to 42dB, while the seven-segment bargraph meter now includes a peak hold function for at-a-glance tracking of signal overload.
