The CU-51’s dual-capsule design provides a cardioid pattern for vocals and a wide range of musical applications. The low proximity effect and ability to withstand high SPLs insures clean, distortion-free response when recording instruments with wide dynamics.

    This article is provided by BAMaudioschool.com.   My first day as a real engineer rather than an assistant was all about bass. The engineer (who was the studio manager as well) took a break after we recorded basic tracks on a Salsa song. Before leaving the room he told me to punch where the bassist wanted. I started, and was easily able to hear and punch individual notes rather than whole phrases. A few times I disagreed about which note… View this story

    One of the most commonly asked questions in audio is “What microphone can I use that doesn’t cause feedback?” The answer: no such microphone exists. Feedback results from a combination of many factors, including loudspeaker placement, microphone placement, and the frequency response of both devices and room acoustics. It’s a complicated process. Entire books have been written on the subject and the mathematical formulas that model feedback are quite involved. So let’s summarize the problem. What is it? Feedback is… View this story
