Milab Microphones will be represented at the 127:th AES convention in New York City by the new Milab distributor for North America - FDW-Worldwide.
Visit us in booth 673 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center - October 9-12, and take this opportunity to have a chat with Mattias Strömberg, marketing manager for Milab Microphones, who will be present throughout the convention.
Today is the last day at work for Gunnel Ågervall, a Milab/PML employee for 49 years - her retirement starts tomorrow, July 1st. Gunnel was the first person to be hired when PML moved from Stockholm to Scania in 1960. No one has been here longer than she and no one knows more about old microphone models than she does. We will miss her presence here at the office, but of course we all wish her a great retirement.
Prestigious pro-audio magazine Resolution (UK) reviews the Milab SRND 360 in the may/june issue. It's another strike for the innovative surround microphone. Some quotes:
"A quick walk around the microphone shows that it's extremely good at localising direction with sources that appear directly on-axis to either a physical or virtual capsule translating accurately to playback. There's also an extremely smooth sounding location of audio as the source moves around the microphone and between channels with little in the way of objectional phase artefacts."
"Tonally, the SRND 360 sounds extremely solid."
"I tried the SRND 360 on a small acapella choir and on a drum kit in the same room. […] In both scenaria the SRND 360 proved fabolous at generating rock-solid imaging when played back in 5.1, and in the case of the drum kit, again very little in terms of smearing of transient sounds."
"It positively encourages you to be creative and perhaps to try recording in surround when you might not previously have considered it worth the bother."
"Neat and compact; easy to use and set up; flexible enough to work in a number of stereo and surround configurations; big sound and tight imaging."
The 2009 Prolight + Sound has come to an end. It's been a very busy week with many interesting meetings.
We presented our new bass drum microphone - The BDM-01 - which received more attention than we had expected. The first batch was sold out even before the fair, so the second (and larger) batch is in production.
We would also like to thank our host FBM Audio - Milab distributor for Germany and Switzerland - for a job well done.
