Milford, NH, August 17, 2011 â€“ Earthworks, Inc., a leading manufacturer of High Definition Microphonesâ„¢ for recording, live sound, and test/measurement applications, has donated a matched pair of QTC30 omni microphones to Womenâ€™s Audio Mission for use in their Recording Studio and Training Facility.
Womenâ€™s Audio Mission already has some big plans for the small diaphragm condenser microphones. The QTC30s are slated to be used in the microphone demonstrations and comparisons in WAMâ€™s upcoming "Introduction to Microphones" training module, which will be released when their online training website, www.soundchannel.org, launches an expanded and revamped website on October 15, 2011. The microphones will also be used in their world-class recording studio on upcoming projects by Vietnam national champion and master musician Van-anh Vo, as well as the teen acoustic duo, The Bayonettes.
Terri Winston, Executive Director of WAM, commented on the impact of the donation. "WAM's mission
is to provide the necessary technical training for women to succeed in the recording industry. That involves having access to the proper professional tools,â€? states Winston. â€œWe were so excited when Earthworks surprised us with the generous donation of a matched pair of QTC30 microphones. It really ensures that our students are being trained on the best microphones in the business and have the opportunity to actually hear what a difference that makes in the resulting recording."
