Once again, as part of Basement Recordings/WST’s ongoing quest to continuously identify ideal microphones for capturing the steelpan instruments in an orchestra setting - WST spoke to Matthew McGlynn of Roswell Pro Audio at the 145th AES convention in New York. He is both the company founder, and innovator behind the designs of Rowell microphone products.
As chance would have it - (chance probably had nothing to do with it when the Pan Gods are active) Matthew is a lover of steelpans and fell in love with the sound of them a long time ago. In this WST tech notes and tips, Matthew gives a brief talk on the benefits of, and why a Roswell microphone, is ideally suited for that daunting task of accurately capturing the rich tonal qualities of the steelpan instruments.
Additionally, Matthew speaks on the advantages overall of the Roswell family of handcrafted microphones - the Mini K47 condenser microphone, Delphos Condenser Microphone and RA-VO Voiceover Microphone.
Basement Recordings/When Steel Talks (WST) looks forward to reviewing a pair of Roswell microphones as lead stereo imaging capture devices in our box-and-one technique, and maintaining the creation of the ultimate immersive experience for the listener of the steel orchestra production. Stay tuned.
