Peterson StroboSoft Suite

Peterson previously only offered its StroboSoft Suite as a digital download, but the software-based strobe tuner for Mac and PC now ships in a retail box that includes a hard-copy manual and an audio adapter for a sound-card jack. Peterson also puts its Intonation DVD in each box, an added value that covers fundamental strobe-tuning concepts and also provides tips and tricks for tuning. If you’ve already downloaded the StroboSoft Suite but want the DVD, rest easy—it’s available separately from petersontuners.com.

Edirol R-09 WAV/MP3 Recorder

Losing lots of musical ideas to a bad memory? Don’t let it happen again. You can record the brilliant melodies that come to you in line at the grocery store with Edirol’s new, pocket-sized R-09, then flesh ’em out when you get back to the studio. The R-09 records WAV files in 24-bit resolution and features an onboard stereo mike as well as input for an external mike and output to audio or USB. It’s also a fine item for capturing a concert or field recording, and it records and plays back in MP3, too. edirol.com

Maxon AD999 Analog Delay

Still think the digital revolution is just a bunch of noise? Maxon’s new AD999 Analog Delay pedal is the latest addition to its Vintage Series and offers a total of 900 milliseconds of pure analog delay. The AD999’s controls are kept to a minimum to keep noise down and keep operation simple. The pedal features Wet and Dry outputs to allow for panning between two amplifiers or channels. Runs on a 9-volt battery. maxonfx.com
