T-funk Hits the Spot for Tipp

Tipp gives a tip of the hat to mics he used on Pulitzer-nominated recordings.

Los Angeles, CA (October 8, 2019)—Prolific LA recording engineer, mixer and audio/video producer Nick Tipp recently used his new Telefunken matched stereo pair of M60 condenser microphones to record viola and cello for an upcoming release by renowned composer Ted Hearne.

“I’m extremely pleased with this Telefunken master set,” comments Tipp, who specializes in recording and mixing live performances, both acoustic and amplified, and live in-studio tracking. For a variety of applications, each of his stereo M60 mics come with three interchangeable cardioid, omnidirectional and hypercardiod capsules. “I’ve been using the M60s in all three patterns on most of the current records I’m working on and all of my live classical concerts.”

Tipp has been recording the work of Ted Hearne for his upcoming Place album, for release in March 2020 alongside the LA Philharmonic’s production of the same piece at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. “I’ve been using these new Telefunken mics all over Ted’s new work that I’m producing. We received one of the three nominations for the Pulitzer Prize in music last year and this new one is simply phenomenal.”

With over 20 years of experience recording bands, ensembles, and artists in diverse rooms and spaces, Tipp has a history of creating unique, purpose-built recording environments, both physically and sonically. As an example, he managed production for all live broadcasts for two years of the annual Moogfest music festival in Durham, NC.

Tipp continues, “I’ve just grown to love the M60 system more and more with each session. I’m using these mics more than any others in spot miking, using both cardioid style capsules and even occasionally using them in omni to supplement the center and the deep center for left-center-right imaging. The brightness is perfect back there where the sources lose HF being so far from the mains.”
