Hi there! Welcome to Hello New Gear, September back-to-school edition! We would like to present to you some of the most exciting and innovative products which have been released on the music and audio market this month! Prepare yourselves… ?
Strymon ZelZah Dual Phaser
We start off with Strymon’s new dual phaser, named ZelZah! Besides its really cool look, with its purple finish, this pedal offers 2 distinct phasers (4 steps and 6 steps respectively) which can be used separately, in parallel or in series, with stereo inputs and outputs and the unparalleled sound quality we know from Strymon!
Artinoise Re.corder is a classic soprano recorder with a built-in wireless connectivity and sensor platform. Touch sensors detect the fingering, a pressure-sensor measures the strength of the breath and, best of all, there’s an additional inertial sensor for adding expressiveness to the playing. Also, this instrument doesn’t only produce recorder sounds, it can produce a myriad of instrument sounds and can also be used as a keyboard and a drum pad! Check out the specs on the product page and the 4 colourways available (Black, White, Red and Blue).
The Matrix Mixer is Erica Synth’s latest creation and is, as its name suggests, a 16-input and -output DC coupled mixer with buffer (3.5mm jack); 256 possible connections, each with 3 attenuation levels (Gain = 1, Gain = 0.7, Gain = 0.3); and memory slots for 254 presets! And all in a truly original form! Find all the information on the product page…
