Earlier this year as part of TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik's continuing research and development program, the Massachusetts based band "THE BREW" (www.thebrew.biz) were invited to TELEFUNKEN Studios in South Windsor, CT to help Team T-funk road test some new microphone designs.
During this R&D session THE BREW tracked one complete song from start to finish, while the process exclusively employed TELEFUNKEN microphones. Many of the microphones are stock production models; some were prototypes of new ideas in development. Most of the sounds were captured using multiple microphones providing countless tonal mix options.
These individual multi-track audio files have been prepared for download and are now available. All audio files are presented in .WAV format and were recorded at 24bit / 44.1KHz sample rate. They are clearly labeled in the same format with the source listed first (LEAD VOX, ACOUSTIC, PIANO). Then the microphone used (C12, AR-51, etc), followed by the make and model of pre amplifier (API, GRACE, BAE, etc). Photos of the instruments and their microphone placements have been included for your reference.
The audio files for The Brew's song "What I Want" are grouped into four ZIP files for your convenience; just download, unzip and have at it. The files are all named with instrument and mics used.
