 HAPI MkII, the best just got better... And the video too


An updated version of the HAPI MkII promotion video has been released, enjoy.

We had a great introduction of the HAPI MkII. Our sales network is stocked up and working hard to fulfill all the orders. HAPI MkII customers have started using them in their productions and are delighted. Here is a 
quote (translated) from a French customer of Yes Audio, Merging Sales Partner in Quimper, Brittany:

"Review on the 
HAPI MkII: It killed me, the distinction in between analog and digital and the “so calledâ€Â superior analog warmth over digital is a false issue; what counts is quality. Not mentioning musical finesse and many other things that I didn’t hear before. Of course excellent with classical music, baroque music but with Rammstein it blows your mind off ! It goes very well with all kinds of music 😄 Deep basses, a very warm sound. What more to say? A fantastic presence. The slightest detail of a recording is reproduced with fidelity of when it was created. Thank you Yann for your advises.  It is really worth trying it out, the risk is that you won’t be able to give it back, outstanding! An issue; impossible to go back. Anubis will be the next step added to HAPI." - Jazzride Pascalc

Merging provides the RAVENNA/AES67 solution for the new studio facility

Given a reputation for producing award winning products and with a majority of employees being keen musicians, setting up a recording facility in the new headquarters in Cambridge, MA was a serious endeavour.  To support its purpose as both a testing facility and as a not-for-profit recording and mastering studio, careful equipment choice was paramount.   That task fell to iZotope’s Chief Engineer and Education Director, Jonathan Wyner and renowned acoustician, Francis Manzella.  Critical components in the listening chain are the mic pres and the A/D and D/A converters.
