Interviews with dating gurus brent
[MI is the industry’s term for Musical Instrument products.
–Ed.] The second thing was that there was a specific customer archetype — usually a parent — who wanted a mic that plugged into a computer without a lot of hassle.
Because no matter what color it is, it kicked a whole lot of ass in the Best 0 Condenser shootout.
We’d set out to identify great “first mics,” which could double as inexpensive studio workhorses even after one’s mic locker gets built out.
The present circuitry actually has the capability to turn the mic into a porcupine of I/O, dials, switches, etc., but we chose not employ any of that.For example, do the actual type of capacitors and brand of FET(s) make a difference?Component selection always matters, but there is a magnitude to how much difference in tonality and performance that a single discrete component may impart.Brent Casey is an audio equipment designer, perhaps best known — to date! He joined PMI Audio (parent company to Studio Projects) around 2002, redesigned the entire Studio Projects mic line around 2006, and in 2010 released the “Little Square Mic,” or LSM, which is in large part the subject of this interview.Why should you care about a 9 USB microphone that is available in 4 colors, including pink?This is why the mic has this split personality of being a podcast/Skype-type device as well as a serious recording mic.The form this all took is similar in size and shape to many handheld devices we carry around with us today.So, in some designs, there is circuitry dedicated to shaping specific frequency ranges of the raw capsule output.I guess the obvious example of an industry-standard capsule that has well-known nonlinearities is the one in the Neumann U87?The LSM was one of the top picks in all three sessions — guitar & vocals, podcasting/VO, drum overheads.(Don’t take my word for it, though; you can listen blind to the raw tracks and decide for yourself.) Now that I’ve been recommending LSM to people, I wanted to get a little more insight into its origins.
