Interviews with dating gurus brent
Brent Casey is an audio equipment designer, perhaps best known — to date! He joined PMI Audio (parent company to Studio Projects) around 2002, redesigned the entire Studio Projects mic line around 2006, and in 2010 released the “Little Square Mic,” or LSM, which is in large part the subject of this interview.
Why should you care about a 9 USB microphone that is available in 4 colors, including pink?
Of course, the functionality doubled later on with the addition of the P48 [phantom-powered analog audio] output, which was an idea put forth by a staff member of Sweetwater during a presentation I gave at their Fort Wayne facility.
It was a pain in the ass to go back and change a finished design, but I’m very glad we did.
With regards to high impedance/low noise circuitry in capacitor-type mics, there are really only two suitable devices, tubes and JFETs.
Then, I switched to CAD, which is my version of a video game. Do you just reach for a known design, borrowing from one of the classics?For example, do the actual type of capacitors and brand of FET(s) make a difference?Component selection always matters, but there is a magnitude to how much difference in tonality and performance that a single discrete component may impart.Because no matter what color it is, it kicked a whole lot of ass in the Best 0 Condenser shootout.We’d set out to identify great “first mics,” which could double as inexpensive studio workhorses even after one’s mic locker gets built out.
Initially, I wanted something that folded up into an integrated body/case, but I got on the Internet, typed in “USB mics” and saw that Blue was already doing this and was really bummed. None of my circuit designs are taken from existing mics, except for the LSD2, which uses two C3 circuits.
