Burbank, CAâ€¦ Royer Labs, recognized globally as a leading manufacturer of high quality ribbon microphones, is pleased to announce the release of the companyâ€™s new microphone demonstration CD. Titled Inside the Mix, the new CD, which is available free(minus shipping charges) to prospective customers, offers detailed examples of both Royerâ€™s studio and Live Series microphones used in a wide variety of musical applications.
Inside the Mix is unique in that it enables one to hear the finished, fully mastered tracks of many of todayâ€™s best-known recordings and then offers a more detailed perspective on ribbon microphones by isolating the individual tracks that were recorded on Royer microphones. In doing so, prospective customers can hearâ€”with unprecedented detailâ€”the soloed track with the individual instrument as it was originally recorded.
Royerâ€™s new demonstration CD contains a broad assortment of musical examples from an equally wide range of musical styles. Inside the Mix includes performances by jazz trumpeter Arturo Sandoval, singer/songwriter/guitarist Brian Setzer, the rock band Matchbox Twenty, and Allen Toussaintâ€”one of the most influential figures in New Orleans R&B. Additionally, numerous leading engineers/producers contributed tracks to Inside the Mix, including nineteen-time Grammy Award winning recording engineer and record producer Al Schmitt, five time Grammy winning engineer Bruce Swedien, well-known Los Angeles-based film scoring engineer/mixer Alan Meyerson, and multiple Grammy Award winning music producer Ross Hogarth.
John Jennings, Royerâ€™s VP of Sales and Marketing, commented on the companyâ€™s new demonstration CD. â€œShort of actually being in the studio or at the FOH mix position on tour,â€? said Jennings, â€œInside the Mix presents both our studio microphones and our recently introduced Live Series microphones in a way that enables prospective customers to obtain a first-hand listening experience for critical evaluation. This new CD features our entire microphone line in a diverse range of musical applications and, most importantly, presents the track both isolated and in context to the finished recording.â€?
â€œExamples include miked guitar cabinets and trumpet solos that demonstrate our microphonesâ€™ ability to withstand high SPLs, examples of orchestral strings and woodwinds, use of the mics as drum overheads, and numerous additional applications,â€? continued Jennings. â€œThis is the perfect means of showing how our ribbon microphones complement todayâ€™s digital recordings and how they can enhance an actâ€™s sound when performing live. Iâ€™m confident this new CD will give many recording professionals a fresh perspective on the capabilities of ribbon microphones.â€?
Royerâ€™s new CD, Inside the Mix, is available complimentary by either making a request on the companyâ€™s website (www.royerlabs.com) or by calling Royer Labs at (818) 847-0121.
