Craig Brekenridge, Earthworks Inc. Product Specialist
This jolly Product Specialist started by showing me their measurement mics which are used in specialized applications such as diagnosing a room's acoustics. All well and good says I. But I'm really interested in the music. That's just it, say'ith he. Our measurement mics are our music mics just minus some technical bits and bobs.
Near-perfect omni polar pattern. You interest me strangely says I for my plan is to mix in a bit of room sound with the classic Blumlein pattern as necessary if and when the classic Blumlein pattern sounds too austere.
QTC40: 40KHz omni. The workhorse. $1000
