Awesome Foursome Of July 2013
The same month we got our hands on the impressive Sony RX1, touted as the smallest and lightest full-frame camera in the world, we also got to hear about the equally impressive Canon EOS Rebel SL1. Apparently this is now going to be the smallest and lightest full- frame camera in the world.
Google Glass - It’s In Your Hands
Imagine walking around an unknown road in the city but knowing who everyone is. Sounds a bit far-fetched? Well, not if Google has its way! After many years of cooking these glasses in their R&D labs, Goo­gle have finally decided to launch them "offi­cially" in 2013, for under $1,500. That's roughly about 82K in INR.
Opulence Re-defined - Bigger Ultra HD TV’s Is Better?
With bigger screen sizes in smart­phones, how could TV sets be far behind? Especially with the ever increasing pixel density, things are only going to get mega-sized mega-quickly! Whether or not you will be afford such extravagant devices will be another thing entirely, but they’re out there and we’ve spotted some of the best Ultra HD TV’s around the world.
The New 19" LED TV From AOC - Almost Life Like
AOC have launched a fairly good prod­uct with some great features like Dream Surround Sound, USB Movie, Real Color Engine, PC Input and HDMI - all of which help in really adding more depth to the LE19A1331/61. It's an LED TV at a very affordable price, with additional ports for that much room to have a better viewing experience.
Videocon VT10 - A Promising Debut
The first time you see the Videocon VT10 Tab you are amazed at its resemblance to the iPad. This white tablet's greatest spec is its screen size. 10.1 inches of capacitive multi-touch works perfectly. Although, one's fingerprint marks are quite prominent on them, we advise you purchase a scratch guard as soon as you purchase the device.
Test Stereo Amplifiers - Driving Your Tunes Forward (Part 3) : Rotel RA-10
Quite simply put, this Rotel stereo amplifier is superb. The RA-10 makes its mark among formidable competition by turning out a spellbinding performance that’s well beyond its asking price.
Test Stereo Amplifiers - Driving Your Tunes Forward (Part 2) : Marantz PM6004, Onkyo A-9050

Test Stereo Amplifiers - Driving Your Tunes Forward (Part 1) : Denon PMA-720AE
The 720 retains that surefooted sense of timing that we praised in the 710, with the added benefit of a tauter, more controlled bass. This amp does have a penchant for a forward-sounding midrange/treble, but there’s no excess brightness to that top end, which has space to breathe.
The Cowon EM1 Earphones - Musically Yours
Tangle free earphones with an in-line remote/mic built in?! Wow! Isn't that what every au­diophile wants while enjoying his music on the go. Unfortunately, not all earphones can give you excellent performances on all the devices you own. So, looking at the spec sheet and build of these Cowon EM1 earphones, we were expecting it to be really good for mobiles and some laptops.
The JBL J22i - A Lot More Than Just Earphones
When we received the earphones, looking at its packaging the first thing that we noticed was that it is made only for iPad, iPod and iP­hone. This kind of did not go down to well with all the "Android Loyal­ists" at the office. So, we decided to test the earphones on an iPhone.
Musical Fidelity M1SDAC - A Wonderfully Musical-Sounding DAC
It’s hard to pigeonhole products such as the M1SDAC. As the name implies it’s a digital-to-analogue converter but there’s more here. It’s a forward-looking device that recognizes phones and tablets are viable music sources and should be celebrated rather than ignored.
Skullcandy's Navigator Headphones - The Aviator's Kin
The sibling to Skullcandy's Aviator series are here - lovingly christened as Navigator. They draw inspiration from the Aviator's but do have a personality of their own. Right from the impressive looking packaging to the overall quality of sound you can expect.
Ten Top Synths (Part 3) : Synapse Audio Software, GForce Software, u-he, Native Instruments
On the face of it, dune is just a regular subtractive synth, and with two main oscillators, a sub-oscillator, three LFOs, three envelopes, filter, arpeggiator, modulation matrix and effects, you may be asking why it’s in our list. But through a combination of excellent patches, simple interface, flexible oscillators and a unison system called the Differential Unison Engine, it can conjure up some very big sounds.
Ten Top Synths (Part 2) : FXpansion, Rob Papen, Native Instruments
While the rest of our recommended synths adhere to an all-in-one design, DCAM: Synth Squad is the complete opposite, comprising a set of three totally individual synths connected by a master combo plugin called Fusor. The synths in question are named Strobe, Amber and Cypher, and each one addressed a different aspect of the analogue synth heritage.
Ten Top Synths (Part 1) : Native Instruments, KV331 Audio, LennarDigital
MusicRadar’s ‘Best Software Instrument of 2012’ is a do-it-all synth with an attractive price tag. The brainchild of Turkish developers KV331 Audio, over its six-year gestation period it’s morphed from a PC-only VST instrument into the cross-platform v2.5 we have today – but throughout that time it’s retained its core aim of offering multiple synthesis types in a semi-modular framework, flanked by an excellent range of effects.
Five Top Drum Machines (Part 2)

Five Top Filters (Part 2)
Quad Frohmage is a four-channel multi-filter. Each channel includes eight main filter types: low-pass, high-pass, band-pass, peak, notch, Moog, comb and ring modulator. Each type gets its own additional options, including such parameters as Slope, Fatness and Color. There’s also a self-oscillating SVF mode.
Five Top Filters (Part 1)
FilterFreak sounds great, and the input/output analogue modeling gives it a further dimension. But it’s the simplicity with which you can add modulation to this classic sound that makes it a plugin that you’ll turn to again and again, any time you need a lush and evocative filter. Great stuff!
Harman Kardon CL - Heavy And Powerful
The box of these headphones itself weighs at least a KG, this is what took us aback but then it is Harman Kardon packaging, you would expect they would impress from the very start. The product is made only for iPod, iPhone and iPad, this may disappoint few souls.
9 Speakers-Blowing Sounds (Part 3)
There’s nothing like a laser effect for adding intensity to a track, and it’s possible to make these simple sounds with practically any virtual analogue synth. Let’s use Dune CM. start by clicking the Bank B button to get an initialized preset. This gives us a sawtooth oscillator by default, which is perfect, as that’s the basis of this sound.
9 Speakers-Blowing Sounds (Part 2)
FM (frequency modulation) bass sounds work well because they can have a more interesting character and more punch than sounds created using subtractive synthesis. Start by loading Curve 2 CM into your DAW, then click New button in the top left-hand corner to initialize the patch.
9 Speakers-Blowing Sounds (Part 1)
If you’re a synthesis novice, it’s easy to be put off by complex interfaces and confusing terminology, but in this guide we’ll smooth the way and show you step by step how to create some of the most useful sounds in electronic music.

Five Top Distortion Plugins (Part 2)
Maul is a 3-stage distortion processor that can operate in three modes Multiband, Serial and Single. Multiband puts the three stages in parallel; Serial, as you can imagine, puts them one after the other; and Single leaves just one stage active.
Five Top Distortion Plugins (Part 1)

It includes six modules – Trash, Filter 1, Filter 2, Convolve, Dynamics and Delay and the processing order can be user-configured within the Graph page.

Portronics Pebble - Innovative And Convenient Music
Most of you who see the product will agree with us that it looks like a mouse. When we first received it, we were quite astonished with its size. Having reviewed several other porta­ble Bluetooth audio devices, all of them had a very different built then this one. We sure were looking forward to see what Portronics had to offer in this highly competitive product line.
