    TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik is introducing the new M81 universal dynamic cardioid microphone at the NAMM 2012 Show, booth 1868. The new M81 has a more linear frequency response than the company’s M80, resulting in a microphone with a distinct clarity but with a different depth and body to the tone, and less of the M80’s characteristic high-end response. The performance of the M80 has been likened to that of a condenser microphone and has become popular for vocal and snare drum… View this post

    Audix USA has launched the FP QUAD drum mic pack, a cost effective alternative to the DP QUAD drum mic pack introduced in 2011. The FP QUAD pack includes F6 dynamic microphone for kick drum, the F5 dynamic microphone for snare drum and two F9 condensers microphones for overhead applications. The F5 and F6 are high-SPL dynamic microphones, well suited for close mic’ing and vital for capturing the attack and percussive sound of the drums. The F5 mic reinforces the… View this post

    You’ve finally invested in a high-quality vocal microphone and your voice has never sounded better. Unfortunately, the keyboard player in your band decides he wants to use your mic during his featured rap. You cringe as he practically eats the microphone. You can barely watch as he encourages audience members to scream into the mic. Afterwards he returns your mic, still operational but considerably wetter and unhygienic. Microphones are subject to an inordinate amount of abuse, especially in live music.… View this post

    It is not usual to encounter an entirely new musical genre, nor is it unusual not to have a clue what to do with it. And that’s exactly what some in the live audio community are encountering with the burgeoning Celtic music scene. Historically, Celtic music has been around a lot longer than America itself. In fact, Celtic music is the roots of bluegrass. Irish and Scottish immigrants brought their traditional folk music with them and several generations later, it… View this post

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   As you may already know, I’m in the process of doing a few upgrades in my studio. Whenever I’m looking to buy a new piece of equipment or upgrade an existing piece of equipment, I try to ask one simple question: What will help me make better recordings? My goal isn’t to marginally improve the recordings. I’m looking for holes in my system. I’m looking for weak links. For example, I… View this post

    If you’re just starting the trek from dynamic to condenser microphones, beware of the four steps of disillusionment. Step 1. Wow, this new cheap condenser mic sounds great! Listen to all of the high frequencies! I’m going to use it on everything! Step 2. Hey, is it me, or is this new cheap condenser mic a little edgy on some things? Step 3. Hey this new cheap condenser mic is noisier than some of my dynamic mics, especially on really… View this post

    Kenny Rogers recently wrapped up his annual “Christmas & Hits” tour that runs from Thanksgiving to Christmas Eve, with Frank Farrell, Rogers’ technical director and monitor engineer, noting that the sold-out tour goes to every kind of venue from arenas and casinos to theaters and high school auditoriums. Designed to be “as frugal as possible in this economy,” the tour includes an 8-piece band and a full complement of A/V equipment with multi-video servers and five projector screens, all of… View this post
