Alive and Kicking

NAMM attendance up, product intros abound By Frank Moldstad
With healthy traffic and a plethora of new product introductions, the 2002 NAMM Winter show in Anaheim this past week proved that the pro audio business is alive and kicking. NAMM announced that final attendance was 65,490, a slight increase from last years record-breaking Winter show attendance (see news story).

Major upgrades and new releases abounded from recording/editing software firms such as Digidesign's ProTools, Cakewalk's Sonar, EMagic's Logic Audio, Steinberg's Nuendo, MOTU's Digital Performer, and Syntrillium's Cool Edit Pro.

There were many developments in hardware -- notably Manley's SLAM (Stereo Limiter And Micpre) , Kurzweil's KSP8 multi-bus signal processor, Focusrite's OctoPre, Mackie's SDR 2496 hard disk recorder, Midiman's Surface One control surface, a new dual channel comp/EQ unit from Macolm Toft (distributed by PM Audio), MOTU's new 896 FireWire audio interface -- but we'll stop there before this turns into a laundry list.

Over the next few days, we'll bring you complete coverage of these products and many more, including some hot news about plug-ins, storage, connectivity formats, and virtual instruments as well.
