The UE 18+ Pro is the company's second-generation flagship custom in-ear monitor and adds proprietary True Tone Drivers to a redesigned acoustic system, fort more detail, separation, presence and coherence in a four-way crossover, triple-bore and six drivers per monitor design. The drivers extend the frequency range by 3kHz to enhance the upper band frequency response and an adjusted midrange gain improves presence, for a clear, yet warm sound. It's available worldwide in December 2016 through Ultimate Ears Pro and authorized dealers, for a suggested retail price of $1,500. Numerous faceplate color options and custom faceplate designs are offered.

Waves Audio Primary Source Expander

New Gear

Now shipping, the Waves Primary Source Expander (PSE) plug-in for live sound lets users reduce stage bleed and sensitivity to feedback when a mic is idle by automatically lowering mic levels between musical phrases. At the heart of the plug-in is a precision expander, tailored for melodic sources such as vocals, guitars, strings, brass, woodwinds and more. PSE works like a fader that smoothly attenuates the channel’s level when the source goes below the threshold that’s been set. The user determines both the threshold and the amount of attenuation. Reducing stage noise leakage when microphones are idle will help users get an overall mix that is more coherent, more focused and has better phase relations.
