Softube Tape is never leaving my mix bus MixFx slot. Pale Pyramid. Reason: Added to. Is this working on studio one 4. Anyone using it? No demo for non sphere users I'm a non-sphere S1 guy and I'm likely just gonna buy the 2 consoles, don't care about the cassette stuff. I didn't like it when I actually used it. CTC-1 is great sounding and way overlooked I bought all three The Portastudio is Can they be used on busses? Or only on the master? Colour me interested , but since I found the 5.
Too bad , but great to see presonus are still actively developing the mix engine. Didn't like any state space emu. Just my taste. The portastudio is more useful on a specific group bus as a sound design tool. I bought Porta Cassette and Brit Console. Top Mentioned Manufacturers. Subscribe to our mailing lists.
On 23 December , Northern Ireland-based vehicle manufacturer Wrightbus was awarded the contract to build the Future Routemaster. On 17 May , the final design was unveiled by Wrightbus, with asymmetric glass swoops as its signature "futuristic" styling feature.
The body has two diagonal glass windows from top to bottom decks, one curving around the rear, the other on the right-hand side towards the front, which provide natural light to the interiors of both staircases. The rear staircase is in the same position as in the original Routemaster, curving around the rear section, while the front staircase is straight, ascending on the right-hand side of the chassis over the driver's cab, opening out in the front of the upper deck.
The use of three doors and two staircases is not new to London: London Transport evaluated a prototype bus in the s as part of the Alternative Vehicle Evaluation programme: a specially modified Volvo Ailsa B55 with two staircases. These trials were curtailed due to the running-down and eventual closure of London Transport's bus Engineering Research department. A static mockup was unveiled at Acton depot on 11 November  the first engineering prototype was driven by Boris Johnson at a public demonstration on 27 May Within days of its unveiling, the first prototype was reported to have broken down on the M1 motorway north of London,  but this was due to human error; it had run out of fuel.
The first new bus fleet number LT 2 entered service with Arriva London on 27 February , on route The eight prototypes were registered on GB registration plates. A block series of Northern Ireland plates in the LTZ 1xxx series was reserved for the production examples with the xxx correlating with the fleet number. The prototypes were reregistered. The first were delivered with Euro 5 engines except for six, which were fitted with trial Euro 6 engines.
In January , an additional order was placed, bringing the total to 1, In June The Guardian reported that the rear door design had been changed, so the door could not be opened between stops, and the platform pole removed, abandoning the original "hop-on, hop-off" open platform design objective. At the end of it was announced that London Mayor Sadiq Khan had discontinued procurement of the vehicles to save money and help pay for a promised four-year public transport fares freeze.
In May , LT1 and LT2 were loaned to the UK government to take part in a global trade mission covering 16 countries in four continents over 12 months. It was repainted green, branded as the New Bus for West Yorkshire. As of March , 1, New Routemasters are under TfL operation, which represents one-ninth of the total fleet.
New Routemasters currently run on the following routes: . New Routemasters previously operated on the following routes. In November , route 10 was withdrawn and its New Routemaster buses were transferred to route When in one-person operation, the driver operates all three doors. When in two-person operation, a conductor stood on the rear platform and that door stayed open even while the bus was moving. At stops, the conductor pressed a button to inform the driver that the platform was clear; the driver operated the other two doors as was done for one-person operation.
Only routes 9, 10, 11, 24, 38 and initially operated with an open rear platform and a conductor on board. The other routes did not operate with conductors from the start, and the rear platform remained closed while the bus was moving. In , the TfL board was told that new routes would have no conductors and would operate with the rear door closed while moving. To address issues caused by air-conditioning failures, in September it was announced a programme would commence to retrofit opening windows.
Under the bus contract tendering system for London, routes are often updated with new buses every five to seven years, with new buses owned or leased by the operator, whether the route operator changes or not. Older buses, often go on to further use outside London, either cascaded within the fleets of the large national operators who own several of the London operating companies or sold to other regional companies.
An exception is the New Routemaster. New Routemaster is only exclusive for London usage, so when the bus operator changes like the case of route 15 , the New Routemaster will continue to remain on the same route but different operator, but it will stay throughout the physical lifespan of New Routemaster.
London transport commissioner Peter Hendy acknowledged in that there were economic challenges in requiring current private London bus operators to tender for routes if they required the outright purchase of the New Routemaster. He acknowledged it could lead to higher bids overall because a rear platform bus was unlikely to appeal to operators outside London and with the questionable applicability of hybrid technology to more rural operations.
Because of the close connection between British car magazine Autocar and New Routemaster, it was the subject of a road test in December The magazine said it was "the best in public transport", referring to the vehicle's hybrid drivetrain as "brilliant economy and an interior to die for".
The New Routemaster was also road tested by Top Gear 's James May in an episode where it left London and drove to attractions such as Cheddar Gorge before returning to the capital to take part in a 'Best of British' vehicle celebration. The New Routemaster has been criticised for the ineffectiveness of its air conditioning on hot days; the Mayor responded that the system was working as intended.
The upper-deck windows have been criticised for being small, not giving comparable views to other bus models, and not letting in much light to the upper deck, making it "gloomy". Although London Buses' Director of Operations promised that all New Routemasters would be staffed by conductors and the rear platform would be open 12 hours a day,  when the buses were introduced on route , there was no second crew member and the rear platform was opened by the driver at bus stops only.
In July , the BBC reported a high level of battery failure, with 80 New Routemasters operating in diesel-only mode. An improved battery design was being introduced. Prior to , some New Routemaster buses with faulty batteries emitted more harmful particles than the buses they replaced.
It is no surprise the emissions are higher than those on conventional buses as the New Bus for London is not operating as designed. It is supposed to be powered by an electric motor, but instead is using its inefficient diesel engine that should, in normal conditions, be running at constant speed".
Additionally, as passengers can board by any door and touch their Oyster cards to the reader, there is significant fare evasion; the driver cannot check passenger compliance as with a single entry door. This reduces revenue, but an additional issue was identified by a bus driver in a letter to a newspaper: passenger numbers are measured by number of fares paid, so they are much underestimated. Bus provision is curtailed or cut due to this perceived drop in passenger numbers; the writer identifies routes 10 and 48 as among those cut.
It has been suggested that the back door and staircase will be sealed and the Oyster card readers removed at the back and centre, removing all the remaining "Routemaster" features of the bus.

The hour hand embodies an Imperial-Class Star Destroyer, the bane of the rebellion, while the minute hand appears as a Super-Class Star Destroyer, one of the most powerful Empire vessels. The captivating tourbillon cage represents the northern hemisphere of the Death Star, making one revolution per minute.
Each realization of a Death Star-shaped tourbillon cage required ' lines of code, which led to operations on high-technology machines. Star Wars iconography is subtly inserted to sublimate the whole such as the esthetic Galactic Empire emblem and the Aurebesh script.
A dome-shaped sapphire crystal has been specifically conceived in order to house the Death Star tourbillon cage and its green superlaser. Made in black DLC coated grade 5 titanium, this 45mm case is crafted to the finest standards of Swiss design and engineering. The traditional crown system has been replaced by an ingenious, inset push-button system, featuring an engraving in Aurebesh script - one of the most widely used alphabets in the Star Wars galaxy. The Death Star-inspired Tourbillon watch itself tells us a great story of passion, craftsmanship and advanced technology.
The timepiece is equipped with an interchangeable strap system. The clean lines are preserved by cleverly hiding the two quick-release buttons on the underside of the case. This practical feature will allow a change of straps with one simple click, from the included calfskin leather strap to either of the two other included rubber straps.
This marks the first time that authentic kyber crystal props will be released to the public as part of Kross Studio ultimate collector set and are an opportunity for die-hard fans to own a piece of the fascinating Star Wars galaxy. Kyber crystal container The powerful and precious nature of the crystals required them to be stored in armored crates for transport.
A functional art piece More than parts were necessary to produce each container, scaled to half the original film dimensions of 3. An immersive visual experience Every aspect of these substantial art objects, like fine sculptures, have been thoroughly conceptualized and executed with immersive details.
The capsules The three capsules contain the Death Star Tourbillon watch, two additional straps and the original kyber crystal movie prop. Inspired by the Death Star legacy Like the powerful battle station itself, the masterpiece of components highlights notable technical innovations, such as the hands which have been affixed to a peripheral display that orbits degrees around the tourbillon.
