NAMM 2016: The Alto Pro BAT and Transport 12
Once again, Alto Pro decides to remind us why they're one of the top brands out there. With the BAT and Transport 12, they're adding two more excellent products to their lineup.
The Bat is a bit of an odd one out. At first glance, it looks like a 'simple' snap-on module to make your microphone wireless, but there's much more to it than meets the eye. Of course you can use to turn your favourite microphone into a wireless one for more freedom on stage. But there's more. First of all, this module uses the 2.4 GHz network, which is basically the Bluetooth network. This network can be used all over Europe and is relatively interference-free. Furthermore, the module has a stereo mode. This allows you to wirelessly transmit all kinds of line signals. Clearly the possibilities are many.
The Transport 12
With this battery-powered speaker, Alto Pro is planning to take the market by storm, and the future is looking bright! The Transport 12 may seem like ten a penny, but if you look closely, you'll see that Alto Pro chose quality over quantity. Its 1" HF driver and 12" woofer together create a rich, warm sound with a frequency range between 70 and 20,000 Hz. Of course, the Transport 12 has all the features you'd expect. It has a 2-band EQ, a built-in media player and a built-in wireless microphone that uses the UHF band. All of this comes in a compact housing with a battery that will last up to 8 hours. What's more, thanks to the built-in trolley handle, it's also very easy to take with you.
Clearly, Alto Pro put their best foot forwards, so their competition may need to watch their step. Game on!
