    A range of DPA miniature microphones were used at Jacky Cheung’s recent Private Corner concert in the Jockey Auditorium, Hong Kong Polytechnic University. The DPA 4099S and 4099T instrument clip mics were used at the concert for trombone, trumpet and saxophones, while a grand piano was miked with 4061 miniature omnidirectional microphones. Mike Wong, Cheung’s monitor engineer, chose the cardioid 4099s for their excellent focus on the instrument as well as isolation and rejection from adjacent musicians. “In this concert,… View this post

    Provided by Sweetwater.   Q: I need to use a mic splitter with my rig so that I can record my band playing live. One side of the splitter will go to the house mixing console, the other side will go to my recorder. I’m using some condenser microphones, which obviously require phantom power. So my question is, can I use phantom power with a mic splitter? If not, what do I do? Is there some kind of separate phantom… View this post

    Royer Labs has introduced the R-101 ribbon microphone, well-suited for both studio and live sound reinforcement applications. The new R-101 offers numerous technological advancements pioneered by Royer Labs. Chief among them is the microphone’s multi-layered wind screening for superior protection from air blasts and plosives, providing excellent protection for the microphone’s ribbon element. This unique screening system also reduces proximity effect, facilitating closer miking with less bass buildup. The ribbon element’s smooth frequency response and phase linearity, coupled with sensitivity… View this post

    Provided by Sweetwater.   Q: I’ve been building a home studio for several years and have amassed quite a collection of gear. Now that I have it, is there anything I should keep in mind? How can I make sure my equipment lasts as long as possible? A: Our lives seem to be ruled by opposites; Things that taste good are usually bad for us, and things that taste bad tend to be good for us. In electronics, the law… View this post

    Provided by Sweetwater.   Q: I’ve been a long time audio engineer and often get asked questions, which I really enjoy answering. After all, it’s nice to pass along knowledge. However, I was asked one recently that really stumped me. This nice kid in a club wanted to know how I take care of my microphones. Well, I know what I do, but I’m long past the point of having any substantive advice on the topic. What are your thoughts?… View this post

    Based in Edmonton, Kentucky, Black Stone Cherry began using beyerdynamic microphones a few years back, after visiting the company’s booth at the winter NAMM show. “We tried a few beyerdynamic mics out on the road and they just sounded so much better – especially the vocal mics,” the band’s bassist Jon Lawhon recalls. “All of a sudden, people started complimenting us on the backing vocals, and the only change we had made was the mics.” Until then, nobody ever said… View this post

    “Recording guitar and playing guitar live are as different as night and day,” said author Jon Chappell in the introduction to the new fully revised and updated edition of The Recording Guitarist. It is a fact anyone who has every tried to lay down tracks will attest to—when it comes to getting the right sound down on tape (or hard drive as is increasingly the case) there is a whole different ethos than on stage or in the rehearsal studio.… View this post
