Gator Frameworks Elite Studio Furniture Line

Gator Frameworks has launched the Elite Studio Furniture line , which includes a studio main desk , a corner piece , rack side-car table , and two keyboard tables . The new studio furniture line was created for musicians and audio pros who are now finding themselves working and recording from home more often . The furniture is designed to look good in the user ’ s home living space while offering studio-specific features .
The studio desk ( GFW-ELITEDESK ) is an ergonomic workstation with a double-level design and customizable rack system to provide ample space for gear essentials . The desk also includes unique features like cable management throughout the legs and prebore holes for mounting desktop mic boom arms .
The rack side-car table ( GFW-ELITEDESKRK ) holds up to 10 U of rack gear along with surface space for a small mixer or desktop accessory and a slide-out tray . The corner piece ( GFW-ELITEDESKCRNR ) is an extension piece to either side of the studio desk to add more room to one ’ s workspace . The keyboard tables ( GFW-ELITEKEYTBL ) are available in both 61- and 88-note specs , their compact sizes are an ideal space-saving solution . The upper platform in both models features a flip-top design with a soft close . Like the studio desk , the tables have under-desk cable organization systems and leveling feet .

Massenburg MDWEQ6 Parametric EQ Plug-In

Massenburg DesignWorks has released the MDWEQ6 plug-in , a high-resolution parametric EQ , which is available for VST and AU applications . Two packages are available , including AAX Native , VST , and AU formats , with or without AAX DSP for Pro Tools HDX and Pro Tools Carbon interfaces . A full demo version is also available .
Following the introduction of the MDWEQ6 for Pro Tools in 2020 , the company says the new versions for both Mac ( AAX , VST & AU ) and Windows ( AAX & VST ) are a result of a large number of customer requests for MDWEQ6 to support a wider range of applications , including Logic Pro , Final Cut X , Adobe Premiere , DaVinci Resolve , Digital Performer , Cubase , Nuendo , Pyramix , Ableton Live , and Studio One . Built on the unique MDW filter-form , the MDWEQ6 plug-in includes a host of professional features including a new active spectrum display , new high and low pass filters , high-Q shelves with sharper transitions , and node points for ease of parameter adjustment directly on the graph . Users can refine sounds using constant shape reciprocal filter curves from the industry-standard reference . The company says the MDWEQ6 processes audio exactly as it states , making surgical EQing easier . This new generation plug-in emulates the constant shape ( i . e . reciprocal ) filter curves of the industry-standard reference for parametric EQ , Massenburg ’ s well-known GML 8200 equalizer .
