Transaudio Family of Products Cleans Up At NAMM and Grammys

Wow, 2012 has certainly taken off with a roaring start for the Transaudio family of product lines! At the 2012 NAMM Show in Anaheim we premiered:

Phoenix II


The Crane Song Phoenix II AAX plug-in. In Phoenix II, Dave Hill’s decades of engineering and recording experience take the original Phoenix plug-in to a new level and new platform. If you want real tape sound and dynamics in your Pro Tools 10 rig, then test drive the Crane Song Phoenix II AAX plug-in.



The new Sonodyne’s SLF 210 subwoofer delivers rock-solid low-end response for your monitoring system. The 10″ high-excursion woofer provides an impressively extended bass response down to 30Hz, with lots of headroom and lower distortion thanks to the 200-watt amplifier with built-in limiter. And although the SLF 210 is perfectly suited to join forces with Sonodyne’s studio monitors, this subwoofer’s variable crossover frequency (50Hz-150Hz) makes it easy to integrate into any existing system. So if you need powerful, extended bass response in your monitoring system, the Sonodyne SLF 210 is ready to deliver.



The new Dave Hill Designs’ Titan is a hardware compressor-limiter that does a superb job of transparently controlling dynamic range, but also gives you an amazing palette of tasty coloration options.

Dave Hill Designs Titan

It’s a digitally controlled analog feedback compressor with two types of VCAs (plus a crossfade) that provide your studio with a huge spectrum of color and control choices. Use the crossfade to blend between squeaky-clean or ultra-coloration. Titan’s stepped controls and color LCD display let you easily recall your settings from previous sessions. If a definitive hardware compressor (with serious mojo) is on your studio must-have list, Dave Hill Designs’ Titan certainly deserves your consideration.
