Timing is the brain child of an ex-Google developer. It’s a rare app that’s been made in Europe (Austria) to make it to the hit charts. And it does so for a reason. Timing delivers on its promise to track your activities over time automatically.
If you have OmniFocus 3 for the Mac, I’m sure you’ll have the iOS version as well. If you don’t, here are a couple of reasons why you should.
iZotope acquired Exponential Audio, a small company with important DAW plug-ins to create reverbs and other effects. That company was founded by Michael Carnes, a classical musician and recording engineer, who also created many of the preset effects. It was quickly recognised as a trendsetter in the industry.
They don’t come cheap, VOVOX cables, but then they can’t be, given their build quality and the sound you get out of them. But, as always with cables, the question is whether you hear a difference. I received a test unit of a VOVOX Sonorus direct S and compared it with an ordinary Cordial, an Inco X-Lead, a Mogami Gold Studio and Gold Stage, and a d’Addario Planet Waves ASMC cable.

What do filmmakers, GoPro shooters and photographers have in common? They crave for speed. The ProGrade Digital MicroSDXC memory card is a UHS-2 card that offers just that and not only at the input side. It comes with a UHS-2 converter which has a double row of contacts.
Mac users who thought the Spotlight search features that are readily available in the Finder are all there is to it, are wrong. HoudahSpot is a ﬁle search utility that builds upon the existing Spotlight engine but allows for vastly more options to search through your files.
The people of Hedge, the (mainly video) offloading slash backup app, have acquired Postlab. This will allow them to deliver an efficient and vendor neutral workflow solution very soon.
Although you can, of course, offload your footage and photos using a €5 SD-card reader, it pays off to spend that little bit more. A good media reader won’t fail in the middle of an offload, is fast, robust, readily available and unobtrusive. ProGrade’s memory card readers are all of that and more.
