Korg’s captivating Monotron and Monotribe have created waves of hands-on, knob-tweaking, analog music-making all across the planet. To capture this creativity, Korg Inc. has created the online Monomania Sound Contest, in conjunction with Korg UK and Korg USA. Due to popular demand, the U.S. deadline for this contest has been extended to January 1, 2012. This is a chance for Monotron users to compete for prizes by submitting a video or audio clip of themselves making sounds with their Korg Monotron or Monotribe. In the U.S., 10 winners will be selected in each of three categories: Monotribe Music; Monotron FX; Monotron Music. Prizes include a silver-plated Monotron and Monotribe, plus a host of other Korg gear prizes and Korg T-shirts. A World grand prize of a one-of-a-kind 24-karat gold-plated Monotribe will be offered to the winner of the Monotribe Music category, as well as a silver-plated Monotron Duo (Monotron Music category) and a silver-plated Monotron Delay (Monotron Sound FX category). Those winners will be announced at the Winter NAMM Conference in mid-January 2012. For additional contest details and instructions for submitting an entry, please visit:




Bluebell Triple Stack Silhouette

Bluebell Opticom at the 2018 NAB Show

At the 2018 NAB Show, Bluebell will demonstrate the Silhouette line of rugged, deployable, high-density, mixed-technology media converters. The heart of the Silhouette power-insertion product family for robotic cameras in remote production scenarios, the Silhouette is a fully integrated 4K UHD robotic head system that works with SD-SDI, HD-SDI, 3G-SDI, and 4K UHD cameras to provide power and control to the camera head and fibre optic connectivity for the remote-control panel. As a result, operators no longer need to rely on stadium power. The customizable Silhouette comes in three sizes and can accommodate any combination of 4K HDR, quad 3G-SDI, trilevel sync, GigE, serial data control, communications, IFB, and multichannel audio signals. Customers can choose to get power from a 12V DC supply, a V-Mount battery, a hybrid cable, or a combination of the three. Introduced at IBC2017, Silhouette units are deployed all over the world in sports, theatre, and music venues.
