M-Audio FireWire 1814

The latest audio interface from M-Audio, the 1814, connects to a computer via high-bandwidth FireWire and also offers ADAT Lightpipe connectivity. The 1814 gets its name from having 18 inputs and 14 outputs. The two main analog inputs feature XLR/phono hybrid jacks and mike/instrument preamps with gain controls, phantom power and pads. Two headphone amplifiers are also onboard and their output mixes can be individually assigned via software.

JodyJazz HR*

JodyJazz’s new hard rubber mouthpieces for alto and tenor sax go for the sound, look and feel of vintage jazz mouthpieces. Available in a variety of facings and opening sizes, the mouthpieces are faced on a special facing machine and then hand finished. HR* alto models are based on the Meyer mouthpiece but have a bit more projection and brightness. The tenor HR* is modeled after the Otto Link but has a more free-blowing feel.
