Yes, I know; it’s the ‘first world problem’ of first world problems. I recently won a contest which brought to my studio an entire mic-locker’s worth of really first class microphones. Needless to say, I was, and still am a bit overwhelmed. That said, in taking a solid piece of advice from my most trusted source (my wife), I decided to take this opportunity to write about said microphones as I put them through paces at Machine Room Studio. Now unless you are a silly audio freak as I am, this may bore you to tears; then again, I’m assuming people actually read what I write (I should be so lucky). OK, that’s the introduction – next post for the first test results. Check check…is this thing on?
