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’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. jodyjazz.com
