Adam Audio A7X Active Studio Monitor
ADAM Audio has announced that it is giving away free plugins to users who register their ADAM products on the MyADAM section of the company’s website.
Currently on offer is Obelisk, a MIDI Chord Builder VST/AU plugin from UK-based audio software developer Frozenplain. Obelisk makes it easier to write chord progressions and explore new harmonies for melodic lines, transforming each MIDI note that you play into a harmony that (optionally) matches the key and scale of your track. The structure of the harmony is created by selecting intervals on the right of the GUI, or by loading up one of the many chord presets. By pressing a few notes on your keyboard, you can create the harmonic basis of your new track.
In the MyADAM area, ADAM customers also have the option of increasing the warranty period of their ADAM products from 2 to a total of 5 years.
Adam Audio A7X Studio Monitors builds on the phenomenal success of the industry-standard A7 active studio monitors as used in top studio applications all over the world. The A7 are still found in many studios today and consistently received amazing reviews. The Adam A7X monitors, despite being its' successor is much more than simply a 'facelifted' model, it is being billed as the "Evolution of a legend". A quick listen to the A7X and you will almost certainly agree that this, rather bold, claim is more than simply marketing speak.
A7X, along with the whole AX range features an X-Art tweeter to handle the high-end frequencies. This is testament to Adam Audios' dedication to only using the highest quality components in their products and helps ensure crystal clear sound reproduction at the top end of the frequency range. X-Art stands for "eXtended frequency response" and isn't just a fancy name, the technical data on these tweeters speaks for itself and is backed up in listening tests time and time again.
Adam A7X incorperates a newly-designed 7" midwoofer with a much larger voice coil. The diaphragm is made from Carbon fiber/Rohacell/Glass fiber which, with minimum weight and maximum rigidity, prevents break up resonances resulting in an outstanding dynamic behaviour and impeccable sound characteristics.
Adam Audio know that high quality drivers are nothing without high quality amplification which is why the A7X has two built-in independent amplifiers built only from components that meet Adams' exacting standards. The midwoofer in the A7-X is powered by a 100w PWM amp twice as powerful as the one in it's predecessor and, combined with a new driver, provides almost distortion-free sound reproduction. Meanwhile, the X-ART tweeter in the A7X is catered for by its' own 50W A/B amplifier.
Adam A7X have dual bass-ports on the front of the cabinet which allow for a more 'unrestricted' bass response. The front panel also features a power switch and volume control which retains the volume setting independently of the power. On the rear panel are several additional controls: a gain for the high frequencies (± 4dB) and two shelf filters for high and low frequencies. To ensure greater compatibility, there are both XLR (balanced) and RCA (unbalanced) connectors.
