TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik has partnered with Indaba Music to present a monthly mixing contest: TELEFUNKEN Multi Track Sessions LIVE. Each month a new song recorded exclusively with TELEFUNKEN microphones, live on stage in front of an audience, will be available for download as part of the mixing contest.

“Go Go Go,” recorded live with Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers is the first song in the ongoing monthly contest. Bluhm previously released an acclaimed solo record before relaunching her country soul career with the Gramblers. Contest participants can enter by submitting their mixes via the Indaba Music contest page. The top ten mixes will be determined by popular vote, with a winning mix judged by the artist and TELEFUNKEN’s staff members.

Each month both the Winner and the Popular Vote Winner will receive a TELEFUNKEN microphone. Prizes include microphones from the R-F-T and Dynamic Series including the M82 Dynamic, M81 Universal Dynamic and the M80 Dynamic, as well as the CU-29 Copperhead, AR-51, AK-47mkII and the ELA M 260.

TELEFUNKEN’s Multi Track Sessions LIVE is an excellent tool for auditioning the TELEFUNKEN microphone product line in the comfort and familiarity of a personal studio or listening environment. Focusing on the Dynamic Series, these recordings feature the newly released M82 on kick drum alongside the M81 on guitars and toms, and the M80 on vocals and snare drum, as well as the ELA M 260 small diaphragm tube mic on drum overheads and room mics.
