Breitlow is an accomplished development engineer who has been with Neumann for 13 years. The panel, which is to be moderated by Eddy B. Brixen, EBB-Consult/DBA Microphones, is being presented in association with the AES Technical Committee on Microphones and Applications. Following is an abstract:
“There are lots and lots of microphones available to the audio engineer. The final choice is often made on the basis of experience or perhaps just habits. (Sometimes the mic is chosen because of the looks… .) Nevertheless, there is essential and very useful information to be found in the microphone specifications. This workshop will present the most important microphone specs and provide the attendees with up-to-date information on how these are obtained and understood. Each member of the panel—all related to industry top brands—will present one item from the spec sheet. The workshop takes a critical look on how specs are presented to the user, what to look for and what to expect. The workshop is organized by the AES Technical Committee on Microphones and Applications.”
