    Many believe that condenser microphones are more sensitive than dynamic microphones (moving coil) and therefore pick up “everything,” e.g., stage wash and noise. Sensitivity, however, is nothing but a constant conversion rate from pressure to voltage and more important, it is distance independent. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not the reason for picking up “everything.” Most condenser mics are indeed more sensitive. A Neumann KMS 105 condenser with a sensitivity spec of 4.5 millivolts at 1 Pascal (4.5 mV/Pa) is… View this story

    Sennheiser is now a member of Crestron’s “Integrated Partner Program.” Both vendors’ products can be integrated into a single combined solution. Among the compatible products are the TeamConnect family of products, SpeechLine DW and ADN. Data can be exchanged easily between systems, such as Sennheiser’s conference solution ADN – here, because control commands are transmitted via TCP/IP, the audio conferencing system’s central unit, the ADN CU1, can be connected to one of Cestron’s media controllers.

Seriously, when it comes to snare mixing, the last place you want to be is behind the mixer. There are… View this story
