Solid State Logic put its pro tech into tiny audio interfaces for bedroom producers

By News

I’m not sure I want to know what a “bedroom producer” is.

” Solid State Logic (SSL) is best known in the audio realm for its huge professional consoles that cost tens of thousands of dollars. But the iconic British company is now hoping to break into home studios for the first time. Ahead of NAMM, it’s debuting two affordable audio interfaces for bedroom producers called the SSL 2 and SSL 2+.”

Razer announces another mobile gamepad, but for Android and iOS

By News

The GameVice for iOS is very neat. The only problem is that my favorite games don’t support MFi controllers (I’m looking at you, FIFA).

The new gamepad is called the Razer Kishi, and it works with more devices than the Junglecat by attaching to the sides of your phone and connecting directly to it with either a USB-C or Apple Lightning connector, depending on the Kishi model specific to your phone. Plugging directly into your phone means the controller should, in theory, have very low latency, and, if you’re on Android, it should work with cloud gaming services like xCloud or Stadia. (If either of those services come to iOS, it seems possible that iPhone users could use Kishi for cloud gaming as well.)

Netflix wants to let people watch things at twice the speed, but Hollywood is pushing back

By News

” Netflix is testing a feature that will allow a small group of Android phone users to change the playback speed of what they’re watching, but some of Hollywood’s biggest actors and filmmakers are pushing back.
Directors Judd Apatow (Knocked Up), Brad Bird (The Incredibles), and Peyton Reed (Ant-Man) asked Netflix on Twitter not to move forward with the tool. Actor Aaron Paul (El Camino, BoJack Horseman) called it a bad decision.”
