Hello New Gear – May 2022

May has arrived and with it some pretty versatile gear! From a brilliant amp in stomp box format to unusual synthesizers and workstation concepts, an all-in-one light and mini multi-effects to a punk guitar… Curious? Let’s get started straight away!

Hughes & Kettner StompMan

The Hughes & Kettner StompMan is a compact single-channel electric guitar amplifier, in stomp box format, with fully analog and zero-latency Spirit Tone Generator technology. This little guy sounds really big, because its power amplifier delivers 50 watts into 4 ohms, 25 watts into 8 ohms or 12.5 watts into 16 ohms. The serial FX loop and the solo function are adjustable and can both be switched via footswitches. Power is supplied via the power supply unit, which is of course included in the scope of delivery. You can find out how the StompMan works and, more importantly, how it sounds in the Hughes&Kettner video below:

beyerdynamic MMX-100 Black

Concentrate on what’s happening on the screen and chat without stress! That’s exactly what the beyerdynamic MMX-100 Black is for, an analogue gaming headset in a closed design with a META-Voice electret cardioid condenser mic. The over-ear shells with ear pads, made of synthetic leather and filled with memory foam, ensure noise reduction and a perfect fit. The transmission range from 5 to 30,0000 Hz and sound pressure level of a powerful 116 dB also impress! Suitable cables for PC or game consoles are included.

Harley Benton MR Classic Series

With the MR-Classic series, Harley Benton is reissuing an iconic electric guitar from the punk era in different versions. They are available as a standard version with a scale of 648 mm or as a baritone version with a scale of 685.8 mm, in various colors from black to red, blue and sunburst to the obvious white, which would have surely been Johnny Ramone’s choice. All models have a basswood body with a bolt-on neck made of Canadian A-grade maple, C-neck profile, 22 frets, 2 Artec P-90 Alnico-5 Vintage single coil pickups with 3-way switch and volume and tone control knobs. There’s also a fixed bridge, Kluson-style Wilkinson tuners and deluxe chrome hardware. We also offer various models in a bundle with a suitable gig bag and, if required, also with a strap and cable. But the best thing is: It sounds fantastic and can do much more than just punk! See for yourself in the video below:

Korg Volca FM2

Korg has given one of the most popular synthesizers in the Volca family an update. The Korg Volca FM2 is a full-fledged and powerful FM synth with 6 operators and 32 classic algorithms. The new generation scores with a doubling of the polyphony voices, to 6 now, a reverb that is now available in addition to the chorus, and the synth now also understands touch dynamics via MIDI and has MIDI Out. The simple operation, the arpeggiator and the 16-step sequencer with motion sequencing have remained. And if you’ve always wanted to hear that in connection with classic FM sounds, no problem: The Korg Volca FM2 can also load patches from the legendary DX7. More in the video below:

cre8audio NiftyKEYZ

The ingenious thing about the Eurorack format is that you can put together your own personal synthesizer. But mostly it turns into a huge wall unit. With the cre8audio NiftyKEYZ, a 49-key keyboard for Eurorack modules, you now have the basis for your supersynth in keyboard format. With a width of 112 TE, you can install modules of your choice and play with the 49-key synth-action keyboard with velocity and aftertouch. The 4x CV/Gate outputs can be split into key zones and used polyphonically or monophonically. Also integrated are 2 buffered multipliers, a multimode arpeggiator, auto-chord function, transpose, glide, swing, a clock-synchronous LFO and a MIDI interface via 5-pin Din and USB. Cre8audio shows you what this could look like in the video below:

Critter & Guitari Organelle S

The developers from Brooklyn, New York simply call the Critter & Guitari Organelle S a music computer. But there is quite a lot behind it, namely a synthesizer, a sampler, an effects device and a sequencer with a 25-button keyboard. There is also an integrated microphone, an OLED display, 4 real-time controllers, stereo input and output, headphone jack, MIDI in and out and an HDMI output for connecting a monitor. The concept of the organelle is not new, but with the S version there is now a much more compact variant that can be perfectly integrated into your live setup. More on that in the video below:
