UNO Synth PRO X, a powerful analog synthesizer that invites its user to embark on a liberating sonic adventure, exploring a world of infinite possibilities where technology meets the timeless allure of analog warmth.
From offering exciting new sounds to becoming the centerpiece of more complex rigs, UNO Synth PRO X represents the sweet spot between an expandable and versatile analog sound engine, hands-on controls, portability and price, making it the perfect choice for seriously fun sound design anywhere.
From Classic to Brand-new Sounds
Inside UNO Synth PRO X, users will discover a unique analog sound engine that they can sculpt to be anything they desire. With a fresh layout, the new UNO Synth PRO X gives players immediate control over its dual-filter, 3-oscillator paraphonic design, 256 presets, 64-step sequencer and much more.
To add more color to the sound, there’s a warm and organic true-analog overdrive, plus 10 studio-quality effects (including a new shimmer reverb and uni-vibe-like modulations) in three simultaneous slots: modulation, delay and reverb.
External signals can be routed through the filters and the effects in addition to UNO’s original thru-put for daisy-chaining multiple units together without using a mixer.
More Ways to Play and Perform
UNO Synth PRO X offers a 64-step paraphonic sequencer with parameter automation including CV and Gate. It has step and real-time recording with a sequence randomizer (following the scale selected) to create intricate and evolving soundscapes. UNO Synth PRO X also features a 10-mode arpeggiator with pattern designer.
In addition to legato, mono and paraphonic modes, users will find a new Bassline mode which modifies the behavior and interaction between core parts of the synth like the filter and envelopes in exciting and inspiring ways.
Comprehensive, Easy-to-use Controls
UNO Synth PRO X offers the simplicity and familiarity of classic synths with added modern control elements. It provides over 30 hands-on controls plus a 16-slot modulation matrix. Users can easily design the most sophisticated modulation scheme with both internal and external sources including MIDI controllers.
UNO Synth PRO X stores 256 user-editable presets, each capturing the full state of the sound engine from oscillators to effects. Presets can be further managed with the included Editor/Librarian. The Editor works as both a standalone application and as a plug-in inside a DAW allowing users to program and play the UNO Synth PRO X just like a virtual instrument.
Connectivity includes USB-C and 5-pin DIN MIDI In and Out making it easy to integrate with other synths and Mac/PC, while assignable CV/Gate connections let UNO Synth PRO X interact effortlessly with Eurorack or other modular systems.
The Sonic Sidekick
Compact and weighing less than a kilo, UNO Synth PRO X is the ideal traveling companion. It can be powered via USB-C and includes a standard power supply unit with barrel for the power-in jack. It has a dedicated 1/8″ stereo headphone out as well as balanced stereo outputs for superior audio quality in any situation, whether on a plane or on stage.
No other synth in such a portable format places this amount of sound design tools at one’s fingertips. UNO Synth PRO X truly frees users to create the sounds they seek, whether emulating classic analog synths or shaping new unique sounds all their own.
IK Multimedia is pleased to announce the release of TONEX Mac/PC, the core element of AmpliTube TONEX™, IK’s complete software ecosystem which lets users model their own rig and play, practice and record with thousands of ultra-realistic Tone Models of amps and pedals.
TONEX Mac/PC is available today in 4 versions for purchase and download including a free version: TONEX CS. IK also announces that TONEX SE is now included with AXE I/O and AXE I/O Solo audio interfaces for guitar and bass players.
AmpliTube TONEX Ecosystem:
A revolutionary concept in rig modeling, TONEX Mac/PC uses breakthrough AI Machine Modeling technology to let users capture the sound of any amp, cabinet, combo or pedal (like fuzz, distortion, overdrive, EQ, booster) and turn it into a Tone Model, all with ease and a sonic accuracy that’s virtually indistinguishable from the real thing.
TONEX Mac/PC works as a standalone and plug-in for all the major DAWs. Plus it’s available seamlessly inside AmpliTube 5, appearing as additional gear with direct access to all the user’s Tone Models. TONEX has two main sections: the Modeler, where the AI Machine Modeling Tone Models are captured and generated; and the Player, where the Tone Models can be searched, played, customized and uploaded to ToneNET.
Coming October, TONEX App lets iOS users use Tone Models on their mobile device and experience the power of AI Machine Modeling, minus the modeling capability. TONEX App works both as a standalone app and as an AU plug-in for recording inside all the major mobile DAWs, and includes the same exact Player section as TONEX Mac/PC software to play and practice.
Owners of TONEX Mac/PC will be able to use the free TONEX App and sync their Tone Model library seamlessly between desktop and mobile devices in the studio, at home or on the go.
TONEX on ToneNET
A new dedicated section of ToneNET (www.tone.net) allows users to browse and listen to over 1,000 Premium Tone Models to help them decide which TONEX version to choose. Plus free user-created Tone Models from the TONEX community will be continuously shared and available for download in real-time, for a limitless growing repository of new tones.
TONEX standalone, plug-in and app, connect instantly to ToneNET from directly inside the program, allowing users to share their own Tone Models and explore the latest user and VIP Tone Models without breaking their creative workflow. Or, TONEX Tone Models can be experienced on ToneNET using a regular web browser and selected for subsequent download on the computer software or mobile device app.
Tone Models can be created in TONEX Mac/PC using a modern computer, a regular audio interface and minimal additional equipment. An interface such as AXE I/O is ideal for tone modeling with its dedicated Amp Out.
To make it easy for anyone to create Tone Models, IK’s new all-in-one TONEX Capture is an accessory that connects to the output of an audio interface to feed into an amp at just the right level. Then, the return stage sits passively between an amp and cab, sending a perfect copy back to the interface at a safe volume without affecting the amp/cab interaction.
The result is a pristine copy of the amp’s real tone, ready for TONEX modeling without the need for microphones and perfect room acoustics. Once modeled, users can experiment with different cabs using IK’s VIR™ technology or 3rd party IRs. TONEX Capture also makes it easy to model an amp plus cab and doubles as an ideal reamplification device.
IK’s award-winning studio monitor is now available in multi-unit bundles and the Dolby Atmos® setup guide.
IK Multimedia is pleased to announce enhanced support for immersive audio, including Dolby Atmos® systems. In addition to a recent firmware update adding a selectable 80 Hz low-cut filter, iLoud MTM studio monitors are now included in the Dolby Audio Room Design Tool to ease in setting up immersive audio configurations to Dolby’s technical specifications.
To enable more users to meet the rising demand for Atmos® mixing, IK is releasing a new iLoud MTM Immersive Bundle. Available now with 11 speakers, this bundle offers incredible performance at an affordable price point, allowing anyone to dive into producing for immersive audio. With their compact size, iLoud MTMs are easy to mount or can be quickly installed on any standard microphone stand for use in environments where permanent mounting isn’t an option.
With the explosion of immersive audio, studios of all sizes need to implement multichannel monitoring, from 5.1 surround to 7.1.4 and beyond. The Dolby Audio Room Design Tool is an interactive Microsoft Excel tool that allows the user to input speaker layout dimensions, speaker locations, and speaker and amplifier details to help design and model a Dolby Atmos® Home Entertainment configuration to Dolby recommendations.
iLoud MTM’s inclusion makes it easier than ever to set up a compact system that’s fully compliant with Dolby’s technical guidelines. Whether it’s for a commercial studio, home setup or home theater system, iLoud MTM delivers award-winning, studio-grade audio to every space.
Using the included MEMS measurement microphone, iLoud MTM’s acclaimed built-in ARC self-calibration system adjusts in seconds, correcting each one’s output to ensure the most precise and balanced sound from every position, including ceiling-mounting. The result is a true phase-coherent response across the useful frequency spectrum for unbelievably natural sound.
iLoud MTM is ideal for multichannel installations being linear phase and having a point-source acoustic performance to be accurate at any distance. This minimizes the inaccuracies that conventional speakers can introduce in the imaging, which is critical for multichannel and immersive setups.
iLoud MTM’s midwoofer-tweeter-midwoofer design boasts dramatically more controlled dispersion than typical designs. This minimizes the speakers’ interaction with room acoustics (and each other), making them ideal for rooms not custom-tuned for surround audio.
Just as importantly, iLoud MTM monitors make setting up a multichannel rig easy. At 30 to 50% smaller and lighter than comparable studio monitors, users will find setup a breeze in any size room. In addition, the iLoud MTM’s threaded bottom allows them to be mounted on a standard microphone stand or boom stand to best suit the listening environment or when space doesn’t permit ceiling mounting.
Have you ever found yourself mid-session missing a key cable or connection? Or worrying before, during, or even after a shoot that your work could be compromised by technical issues?
iRig Pro Quattro I/O will put those concerns to rest forever. It’s a professional-grade 4-in / 2-out portable audio and MIDI interface packed with everything you need for pristine field recording, content creation, streaming, podcasting and performing. Handle anything life throws at you without breaking a sweat.
