Live Sound, sE On Tour

Allen & Heath Adds sE Electronics to ProFactory Mic Presets

From the Allen & Heath website:

Allen & Heath is pleased to announce the availability of the latest ProFactory channel libraries for its Qu series digital mixers. Following successful collaborations with Audio-Technica, Shure, and Sennheiser, the new presets cover a range of popular sE Electronics microphones, including the V3, V7, VR, 4400a and RNR1.

ProFactory Mic Presets offer engineers of all abilities an ideal starting point to get the best possible sound quickly and easily. The team at Allen & Heath worked closely with sound engineer Frederik Brandt Jakobsen at sE Electronics who developed the optimal settings for each microphone and instrument combination.

“Convenience is key. On-board effects and snapshots are mandatory characteristics of today’s digital consoles. Allen & Heath have taken this one step further with the addition of ProFactory Presets to their Qu series,” says Toni Scherrenberg, Global Sales & Marketing Director at sE Electronics.

“We know the strengths of our products, and we have created a variety of awesome-sounding EQ settings for sE microphones.”

The presets are available now as a free download from the Qu series product pages HERE.

Tape Op Magazine Reviews the V7 Dynamic

We were ecstatic when we opened this month's issue of Tape Op magazine and saw their review of our V7 Supercardioid Dynamic mic.

Here are a few quotes, but you should definitely go read the whole thing...

 
 

"The V7...is a stage mic that doesn’t feel like a compromise. I’ve had this mic for almost a year, and it’s captured amazing vocal performances, with stellar sounding results. Plus, the V7 excels at all of the requirements for live use — even more so than the industry standards."

"...great rejection and a smooth off-axis frequency response, with fewer ups and downs in the spectrum vs. the Beta 58A."

"...the V7’s self-resonance is more than one octave lower than that of the three Shure mics — which means you have a much greater chance of being able to EQ (or multiband-compress) the handling noise out of a V7-recorded track, without losing as much from the lows and low-mids. This is a tremendous advantage when your singer wants to hold the mic."

"Moreover, given its stellar sonic performance, it’s also a great dynamic mic for drums, guitar amps, and other instruments too. I think every studio should have at least one V7 — for tracking live vocals, but also for recording anything that would make you pull out your other favored dynamic mics. Given its price, you can probably afford to buy a few of them."
