ADAM Audio gives away free plug-ins, extends warranty to five years

ADAM Audio Free Plug-insIt’s been a year since ADAM Audio was acquired by the Focusrite Group. Now, the speaker manufacturer is following in the footsteps of the parent company. Similar to Focusrite’s Plugin Collective and Novation’s Sound Collective, ADAM Audio is giving away free plug-ins to owners of its speakers and headphones. All you need to do is register your products on the company’s website. As an added bonus, you’ll also have the option to extend the warranty period from two to five years.

ADAM Audio gives away free plug-ins

In Focusrite’s and Novation’s Sound Collective / Plugin Collective program, registered owners of the companies’ products receive a different plug-in for free every two months. ADAM Audio is now offering a similar deal. Register your product(s) in the MyAdam section on the company’s website, and you’ll find your free gift in the Free Plugins section in your user account. Easy! The offer applies to owners of the ADAM Audio T series, AX series, S series and subwoofers, as well as the SP-5 headphones.

The current offer is Obelisk by FrozenPlain, a MIDI chord builder and harmonizer plug-in that makes it easy to chord progressions for your melodies. Obelisk automatically harmonizes melodies with chords that match the key and scale of your track.

Extended warranty

Here’s another great offer for owners of the aforementioned ADAM Audio products purchased from an authorized dealer. Upon registering your products, the manufacturer will extend the warranty period from two to five years. That’s quite generous and speaks for the confidence ADAM Audio has in the quality of its products. Again, all you need to do is create a user account and fill out the product registration, and you should be good to go.

Deal: Save 100 euros on Sennheiser XSW 1-835 wireless microphones!

Our colleagues at Thomann are offering you some awesome deals on Sennheiser XSW 1-835 wireless microphone systems. Various frequency band systems are available with a whopping discount of 100 Euros! This is a limited availability offer as long as stocks last. If we’ve whetted your appetite, read on for tech details and money saving links.

Sennheiser XSW 1-835

So what’s the deal with the XSW 1-835 wireless microphone? Well, it’s based upon Sennheiser’s XSW wireless technology; the microphone uses the 835 dynamic capsule plucked from the evolution series. That means you get a high-quality cardioid wireless microphone with a frequency response ideally tailored to vocals. Additionally, you’ll also benefit from the advantages of Sennheiser’s XSW wireless system technology.

Each XSW set allows you to choose from one of ten channels within a preset frequency bank. Simply purchase the XSW wireless set with the frequency bank that best suits your application. Operation is a doddle with an auto-scan function finding free and available frequencies for you. A true diversity system, you can kiss goodbye to irritating dropouts and enjoy the stage freedom a wireless system gives you.

Importantly, transmitter and receiver pairing is as simple as the push of a button; the built-in display keeping you posted on battery life. Talking of battery life, two AA batteries will give you up to 10 hours of performance time! The pro features continue with both jack and XLR outputs on offer; you can also switch between line and mic level from the receiver.

Your Choice of Frequency Bands

We don’t know how long the current offer will continue for, but we’ve noticed before that some deals sell out within hours. Our advice would be to jump on this one whilst you have your pick of frequency bands! All models within the XSW 1-835 range are the same, it is only the preset frequency bands which differ. If you’re in any doubt, contact Thomann directly.

Right – on to the affiliate deals from our friends over at Thomann!

The Sennheiser XSW 1-835 A-Band Vocal Set covers the A-Band frequency range from 548 to 572 MHz.

The Sennheiser XSW 1-835 B-Band Vocal Set works with the B-Band: 614 to 638 MHz.

With the Sennheiser XSW 1-835 E-Band Vocal Set the E-band frequency range is available: 821 to 832 and 863 to 865 MHz.

And finally, the Sennheiser XSW 1-835 GB band Vocal Set GB-Band frequency range: 606 to 630 MHz.

TYXIT T.ONE promises a wireless live sound revolution

TYXIT is a Swiss company aiming to revolutionise the way you connect your instruments. The Kickstarter campaign promises quick setups, freedom from cables and ease of use. Is this the beginning of a connectivity revolution? Or is it just another Kickstarter destined to disappear without a trace?

TYXIT: A Wireless Revolution?

When TYXIT’s press release dropped into our inbox we were, admittedly, sceptical. We hear words and phrases such as “revolutionary” and the cringeworthy “game-changer” bandied around on a daily basis. It’s not the first time we’ve been promised a revolution in wireless technology; do you remember Audiofusion? No? We didn’t think you would…

Why should you care about TYXIT then? Well, we think that this technology might actually deliver. TYXIT’s aim is to free you from endless cables, expensive wireless systems and monitoring and recording problems. It’s a nice idea, isn’t it? All you need is to plug in one of TYXIT’s transmitters, use a receiver pack for your monitoring and mix yourself using an app on your phone.

So What’s The Catch?

Importantly the TYXIT T.ONE system works on the ISM frequency band; this is much more robust than other cheap systems which use domestic Wi-Fi. It’s affordably priced and appears well-engineered, so what’s the catch? If you’re in a band with only a few input sources, we can see this working well for you. If you play in a traditional rock band, with multiple mic sources, it may become financially prohibitive.

We also have reservations over the ability to interface multiple channels with a front of house system. It should be noted that you’ll probably need an additional computer; we can’t see much info on multichannel audio outputs. Obviously, that’s all additional cost and complexity you’ll have to deal with. You might well feel that defeats many of the advantages of the TYXIT system.

If you’re interested in getting on-board with TYXIT, then there’s good news for you. If you head over to their Kickstarter page, you can take advantage of various early bird perks.

Let us know if you decide to take the plunge! We’re eager to see how the TYXIT system plays out in the real world…

MacOS ransomware EvilQuest found in pirated Ableton and Mixed In Key software

EvilQuest ransomwareNew ransomware specifically targeted at Macs is going around. EvilQuest encrypts the files on your hard drive and claims that you’ll only be able to regain access your data if you fork over some bitcoins. But that’s not all: it also infests your system with other malware including a keylogger, which can reveal your sensitive information to the attackers.

EvilQuest ransomware

Malware that specifically affects Macs is still comparatively rare. But it does exist ‚Äď and this time around, us musicians should be paying attention. EvilQuest is a new malicious piece of code that seems to spread through pirated copies of popular music applications, among others.

Once EvilQuest has found its way onto your hard drive, it encrypts the drive, preventing you from accessing your files. It then proceeds to tell you that the only way to get your data back is to pay ransom in the amount of USD 50 in bitcoins. The attackers claim that you’re “guaranteed” to get your files back, but I think we all know where this is going.

EvilQuest ransomware

Caution: the EvilQuest ransomware spreads through pirated music software!

And EvilQuest doesn’t stop there. IT experts have identified various other bits of malicious code that could expose your personal data to the attackers, and these will likely continue to run even if you pay ransom and regain access to your files. The malware apparently searches your system for files like wallet.pdf, wallet.png and key.png, which are associated with handling cryptocurrency. It also installs a keylogger, which tracks your keystrokes and transmits them to the attackers, potentially exposing your passwords and sensitive data.

Keep your data safe

Sounds scary, right? But here’s the thing: To contract EvilQuest, you need to be a bit of a crook yourself. The ransomware spreads through pirated software, much like the LoudMiner trojan exposed last year. Among others, the list of “warez” affected by EvilQuest seems to include Ableton Live and the Mixed In Key DJ software. Apparently it also spreads through pirated copies of Little Snitch, which is especially devious as that’s a popular tool for internet security.

So what does this mean? To state the obvious: if you stay away from cracked software and suspicious servers, it looks like you have little to worry about at this point. Protect your data by keeping your backups up to date, so you can restore your system in case things do go wrong. And consider using protective software like Malwarebytes for Mac or the free RansomWhere for an extra layer of protection.
