Miking Made Easy
For the videos, the filmmaker Geert Verdickt – himself a musician and vocalist in a band – has chosen a classical rehearsal room and a typical stage in order to have a closer look at the musicians’ instruments and voices. He gives an illustrative description of the microphones and shows how they can best reproduce the sound of each instrument. Verdickt’s insider tips range from mounting the mike to avoiding spill from other sound sources on stage.
“We all know that a picture is worth a thousand words, and these videos give a clear and understandable overview of what each microphone is suitable for and what is the best way to mount and position it,” explains Oliver Ohrndorf, Marketing Manager MI for Sennheiser.
The two-minute video clips cover the entire evolution range, including the 600, 800 and 900 series. Whether they are used for vocals or instruments, all evolution microphones feature impressive sound quality and extreme robustness. The videos are now available at www.sennheiser.com/evolution or at the official Sennheiser YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/sennheiserofficial
