Fredrik Nordstrom (of Studio Fredman) used the CM47 for all the vocals on the Architects latest album, Lost Forever//Lost together which has won best album at Kerrang! Everyone at AA sends their congrats!>
"Fredman", in preparation for his next project, just added another 3 CM47fets to his AA mic locker for use on the drum sound. He "loves that mic!" A true workhorse in the studio.
We are proud to launch our new microphone the CM251! The mic is inspired by the original ELA M251. Using modern circuit designs while maintaining the vintage sonic character of the original, our CM251 offers yet another flavour to our mic line up.
"The CM251 is smooth and present. It just sounds right when you put it up on a vocal. It has a mellower sound then the C12. The creamy top end captures emotion wonderfully." - Dave Thomas
May 30th saw the first Advanced Audio studio day held at Rimshot Studio's. The event allowed a small group (about 30 lucky souls) to witness a full lineup of AA mics in a live recording session featuring a group of very talented session musicians. With Niall Acott at the helm of the SSL board, and the use of some beautiful 60's era Decca valve preamps two full tracks were captured in AA style! Check out the video and the tracks!
Fall Out Boy's last album, recorded with Butch Walker, Save Rock and Roll featured the CM47 and CM67se on vocals. Guitarist Joe Trohman is now building himself a studio and wanted to add some AA mics to his arsenal.
" Stoked on the mics! I plan on these being heavily used, they'll get a lot of miles for sure." - Joe Trohman
Advanced Audio CM47 makes an appearance on MTV, Portugal, May 2014
The video, recorded at Kbranca Music in Portugal, is being featured on MTV - Portugal.
"the two Portuguese MTV Artists reach the perfect balance between Fado and Pop Music, in a duet that touches the heart."
Universal Music South Africa recently chose AA mics as the "go to" mics for their newly opened recording studio complex in Johannesburg. Two CM67SE and a CM47fet will be blessing the audio waves in SA.
Charles Kelly of Lady Antebellum recently found himself in front of the Advanced Audio CM67se and the mic he was accustomed to. " When Charles sang into the AA 67, the rest of the band freaked out and said it was the best he ever sounded...(click on link above to read more!)
Wes Maebe's $50k studio setup "boasts brave analogue in a new digital world." Have a look to see the other gear and AA's CM 47 as the go to LDC.
After a very successful week in Asia the AA team has returned with a load of knowledge and insight into our microphone production and factories day to day operations.

Advanced Audio Microphones found ourselves reveling in the famous loading bay at Fader Mountain Sound in Vancouver, BC recently. Formerly, Little Mountain Sound Studios, the studio's loading bay is famous for (or infamous) the shotgun snare sound. It can be found on a huge number of hit albums. Bruce Fairbairn and Bob Rock recorded Aerosmith's Permanent Vacation, Pump and Get a Grip , Metallica's Black Album, Bon Jovi´s Slippery When Wet and New Jersey and Motley Crue's Dr. Feelgood to name but a few of the greats who have been recorded within those walls.
The company ( yes, all 4 of us!) are heading to Shanghai to visit our factory. We will be discussing the first run of our preamps and gaining even more insight into our capsule and microphone production. Shanghai is the tech capital and we look forward to 'geeking' out in the factory!
London - Advanced Audio Microphones had a chance to shine in a way they have never before; on a large ensemble in a world class studio, with award winning pro's at the helm!
"Studio one at Angel Recording Studios"
Three sessions, all taking place at Angel Recording Studios in London, consisted of 40 of the finest London players and a saxophone soloist. 5 time Grammy nominee Chris Walden arranged and conducted the group, while James McMillan brought his award winning producing skills. Mic choices for a session of this size are not taken lightly. So, when James proposed using AA mics it required some discussion. Niall John Acott, the engineer for the session, and James have used AA microphones in the past, but never on such a large scale.
" We've used Advanced Audio mics in recent years on a few different sources, mainly CM12se and CM47ve on vocals. More recently, we recorded a string quartet using the CM12's on violins, CM47 on viola and a CM67se on Cello, with great results. A stereo pair of CM28's in ORTF performed well as an ambient pair. The 67 is particularly sonorous on cello." Niall John Acott
