Rational is all over it.  I think list is around $300. but don't quote me on that.  It will blow away the old Audix.  Earthworks is going to have to step it up or lower there prices me thinks, or Harry might be getting a matched set of Audix instead of EW.

Has anyone heard about a new Audix measurement mic?


After I sent my two TR40s in for test (April of last year), I was told by the Audix test engineer with whom I dealt that they were working on a new measurement mic that was supposed to be as good as the Earthworks 30 but for less money. He said he hoped that it would be released in about six months but otherwise made no guarantees.

Obviously it is not ready for prime time.

They showed it at NAMM.

Harry -
A few posts back is the youtube video at namm - here it is again:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fizlhpuhm8g

It is true that list is $299, at least according to the video - these things seem like they are subject to change until the product is actually released.  

Do you happen to know anything about the capsule?  Is it pre-shrunk?  

Thanks,
Grant

...And now the TM-1 is on the Audix website:  http://www.audixusa.com/docs/products/TM1.shtml

If it isn't obvious by now, I'm a little obsessed with measurement mics, (and construction levels - go figure) particularly with what their diaphragms are made of, since I don't know of any other way to really gauge long term stability other than reports from the field, which can be spotty.  So, I sent Audix an e-mail the other day to ask about the TM-1 diaphragm, and this is what they said:  

After the TM-1 is in day to day use we will see the real quality, stability, etc. ,  it is difficult to predetermine accurately the performance of any product until it has been in use.  It is my belief that the quality and performance of the TM1 (short term and long term) should be evaluated by those that are using the product.
“Pre-aged and pre-shrunk” to one degree or another most diaphragms are conditioned in the manufacturing process."


FWIW.  

And here's another gem I haven't heard anyone else talking about.  The Avantone AK-Type VII.  Sports a nickel diaphragm (I only know because I asked) and sells for $499.  Sweet.

Type VII ?  I wouldn't use anything lower than a Type-II  Very Happy

Looks like a possible "find". Know anything about the company, reliability of their products, service/warranty support, etc ?

Thanks, Grant.

Hi Tom -
The only thing I know about the company is that their recording mics are being very well received by top studios and engineers.  I'm selling a CV12 which will arrive today or tomorrow, so I'll get to see the quality of their product firsthand.

I'm using a matched set of 6 x DPA 4007sim micr. The 4090/91 is also ok i own 10 pieces of them but i use them on stage . I somethimes use the 4007 on stage but there a little to expensive to have them trown around by musicians or stage people . I used a 4007 in a base drum a couple of times . That was a eye opener on low end specialy for the subs in that configuration of PA

Timo,
That is an impressive array of mics you have there! I am having serious mic envy, stuck here with my cheapo Earthworks wannabes. Embarassed

The 4007 is capable of extremely high SPLs before overload so I am not surprised that it would make an impressive kick drum mic.

I'm about this close to ordering a set of M30's, but this looks very interesting. Is it me or does it look almost too good to be true? I'm hesitant because I've never heard of them.

Hi all,

I dot know if anyone mentioned it before or not.
My favorite measuring mic is (and its also quite affordable) the one what comes with the Klark DN6000 analyser.
It also can be ordered as a mic alone.
it is dead flat, and it always comes with a measured response graph (measured with B&K equipment)

any toughts?

Thanks,

Tamas
