On Friday, November 18th, New Haven, CT based composer / multi-instrumentalist Jonny Rodgers (www.jonnyrodgers.com) visited the TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik facility to lend his superb musical talents in the name of research and development. The entire product line of TELEFUNKEN vacuum tube based microphones were assembled in efforts to record a performance of Jonny's unique combination of water filled wine glasses and male voice.
The performance of "Glorious" was recorded and filmed live, with no overdubs, at TELEFUNKEN's studio, direct to Pro Tools via the studios API 1608 console.
The performance was tracked via 6 individual matched sets of microphones, including spaced pairs of the large diaphragm U47, C12, AR-51, AK-47 mkII, and CU-29 Copperheads. The newly released small diaphragm tube ELA M 260 Stereo Set were employed utilizing the cardioid capsules, along with the AR-70 Stereo microphone fixed in X/Y. Vocals were re-enforced with a U47 and the ELA M 251E. Each of these microphones offer a completely unique tone and sonic characteristic that is clearly heard via the provided isolated audio files.
The multi-track files from this recording session are now available for download for audition on your own DAW of choice, in the comfort of your own familiar studio. All audio files are presented in stereo .WAV format and were recorded at 24bit / 44.1KHz sample rate.
All the files are clearly labeled with the microphone used (C12, AR-51, etc), and then the make and model of pre amplifier (BAE 1073, Manley, Neve, API, etc.).
