    Harman’s AKG has introduced a pair of tabletop microphone solutions for wireless use. The new CBL31 WLS and STSDAM+ both offer durability and flexible housing options and are well-suited for meeting rooms, courtrooms, conference rooms and houses of worship. The AKG CBL 31 WLS and STSDAM+ are based on heavy-duty tabletop mechanics and due to their heavy weight, are highly shock-absorbent and hold the microphone firmly in place. Various AKG pocket transmitters (including the WMS40/45/420/470 and DMS700) fit into the… View this post

    Top producer/songwriter Mitch Allan—also an engineer and good at multitasking with a variety of artists such as Melissa Etheridge, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, and Selena Gomez—notes that his new microphone of choice is the Telefunken ELA M 251E. Allan acquired the ELA M 251E, handcrafted in America and a re-creation of the time-honored large-diaphragm tube microphone, at Vintage King in Los Angeles. “My first wow microphone was my vintage (AKG) C12,” he recalls. “I explained to Chris Bolitho at Vintage… View this post

    The Concert Choir at Kirkland, Washington’s Northwest University has a reputation as a premier performance ensemble, demonstrating a wide-ranging musicality on pieces from throughout the choral repertory. For the choir’s recent annual concert at Seattle’s Benaroya Hall, engineer Steve Smith recorded and mixed the live performance, utilizing microphones from Audio-Technica. Although the recording will likely be used only for archival purposes and internal circulation rather than commercial release, Smith did not take any shortcuts, carefully miking the 100-plus member choir,… View this post

    Provided by Sweetwater.   Q: I’ve tried using overhead mics to add depth to my drum recordings, but all they do is make the recording sound washy. Any advice? A: A well-placed room mic can certainly add depth and space to a recording, especially on drums. But sometimes a room mic ends up picking up too much of a particular instrument and drowning out the source you were hoping would benefit from the room mic. A gate can be an… View this post

    Popular rock band Umphrey’s McGee are touring with a wide assortment of Telefunken dynamic microphones for vocals and drums. “Keeping the drum kit out of a drummer’s vocal mic is difficult.,” says FOH mixer Chris Mitchell.  “The M81-SH offers great rejection while still sounding natural and strong.” Originally from South Bend, Indiana, the music of Umphrey’s McGee is often referred to as progressive improvisation or “Improg”. Although the band is part of the jam band scene, with ever-changing setlists, improvisation,… View this post

    Article provided by Home Studio Corner.   I listen to a lot of recordings, and one mistake that I find very often in a beginner’s recording is that they don’t record acoustic guitars with microphones. Now, this is certainly my opinion, but I feel that acoustic guitar was meant to be recorded with a microphone. The direct sound of an acoustic guitar just never sounds good to me. I am an acoustic guitar player, so I’m certainly biased, and there… View this post
