Summ-thing for Everybody: DIYRE SB2 Passive Summing Mixer

New blog post is up...geek out with me about summing mixers:

The Beyerdynamic M-160 has an unusual design for a ribbon mic -- it actually has a hypercardioid pickup pattern instead of the usual figure-8 pickup pattern found in most ribbons. In addition to its pickup pattern, it also has a more present sound compared to other ribbon mics. This mic was widely used by Eddie Kramer (audio engineer for Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin) to record electric guitar. But the M-160 is more than just a great guitar mic -- the vocals on Jimi Hendrix’s rendition of “All Along the Watchtower” were recorded with an M-160, and the drums on “When the Levee Breaks” by Led Zeppelin were recorded with a pair of M-160s.

Thanks for the shoutout Zebra Press! This EP was a joy to record.

We just met this exciting young talent and our Theatre Editor, exclaims that the local T.C. Williams High School grad is "attacking the music world with a vengeance and boldly making her mark"

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Saturation I remember the first time I used the output k**b on a microphone preamp. I was interning at a recording studio built into a old farmhouse right next to the historic Antietam battlefield. Although I try to make recordings that transcend place, I
