    Countryman Associates has introduced the H6 headset microphone, available in both omni and directional versions and outfitted with the same microphone capsule as the company’s popular E6 omni earset mic.

    This article is provided by Bartlett Microphones.   You patch in a piece of audio equipment, and there it is: HUM! This annoying sound is a common occurrence in sound systems. Hum is an unwanted 60 Hz tone—50 Hz in Europe—maybe with harmonics. If the harmonics are especially strong, the hum becomes an edgy buzz. A sound system also might be plagued by RFI (Radio Frequency Interference). It’s heard as buzzing, clicks, radio programs, or “hash” in the audio signal.… View this post

    The CAD Audio AS32 Acousti-shield was developed as an essential accessory for recording; when effectively utilized, it can substantially reduce unwanted reflections, echo flutter and environmental acoustic interference. The design results in an easy to use, highly flexible device, while not sacrificing stand-mounted stability. The AS32 Acousti-Shield is constructed from a high quality 16 gauge perforated stainless steel shield mated to 53mm high-density micro cell acoustic foam resulting in a dry recording environment.

    This article is provided by Rane Corporation.   Selecting the right preamplifier for a given microphone, or conversely, selecting the right mic for a given preamp, involves two major factors along with several minor ones. First, the two big ones: Input headroom. Do you have enough? Noise. What will the preamp add to your mic? You need to determine whether the mic, under worst-case conditions, is going to overload the preamp input stage, and also whether the preamp is going… View this post

    Start by identifying the location of the speakers in the cabinet. Don’t assume that the speaker location is symmetrical (some are, some aren’t.) You may need to look at the back of the cabinet or shine a flashlight through the grillcloth to locate the position of the drivers inside the cabinet. Next, aim for the center of the paper cone, and about 1-2 inches from the grillcloth. This is the general starting place for all setups. Adjustments will be made… View this post
