The team is back at the shop and back to business as usual. We enjoyed visits from some happy users including Jake and John Sinclair, Joseph Magee, Chuck Ainlay, Wes Maebe, Jack Douglas, Gary Belz, Al Schmitt, Bryant Sionno, David Royer, Jason Brennan, Bobby Owsinski, and so many others!
Proud AA users Jake and John Sinclair:
"AA was all over the place on Harry Connick Jnr"
"What do you use your CM67se on?
|Jack Douglas: "I need one of those CM251's"||Gary Belz: "I've heard great things, I want a CM67se"|
Winston Hauschild and Warne Livesey used the CM67se at the Peak Performance project this August. The Peak brings together the top 12 bands of the west coast for a week of intense recordings and seminars. AA were happy to offer up a pair of CM67se for use on the album that was created up in the mountains of Princeton BC. Watch the bootcamp video and see if you can spot the 67se!!
"I used the Advance Audio CM67se at this year's Peak Performance bootcamp. They were great on everything! Overheads, vocals, acoustic guitar and gang vocals. Another great mic from AA."
- Winston Hauschild - engineer, producer, songwriter
"The new Lee Ann single is one of the songs we re-sang using the AA67, sounds awesome! Thank you!"
- Chuck Ainlay, producer, engineer, mixer
"I've been using the CM67se on vocals and bass for awhile now. Had some good success with it so far! I used it on Train's upcoming record, Travie McCoy, New Politics, a bunch of fun stuff." - Jake Sinclair, engineer, producer, composer
Produced by Pretinho, in Rio de Janeiro at Melhor do Mundo Studios, the duet features vocals by Kelly Slater, Karina Zeviani aswell as acoustic guitar all done on Head Engineer, Alexander Griva's CM47.
"The mic has a beautiful high end and warm sound, sounded great on both voices. Sometimes you have to change mics from male to female voices...not with this mic, even the guitar has great high end definition and full body. It´s a killer!" - Griva
We are happy to be visiting the137th AES in LA this year! The show should be even bigger then last year and runs from October 9-12. We will be showing off our new microphones, the CM251 and the CM1084 as well as the production models of our new preamps.
Stop by booth #1252 to say hi and to grab some great swag! The "Just Try Them" set up will be in full swing with all of our mics available for comparison.
You can certainly say Dan Cleary of the band Striker puts the SPL handling of the CM47 to the test on their most recent album, City of Gold! Here he tells a little about how the CM47 did. The Canadian heavy metal band recorded both in Sweden at Studio Fredman and back in Edmonton, Alberta Canada.

"Advanced Audio Mics are up there with the finest maple syrup in terms of the most legendary thing to come out of Canada. Like the best maple syrups, you can count on Advanced Audio mics to be sweet, supple and always bring unexpected complexity and depth. Beware, because once you have a taste, you'll be coming back for at least a second pour."
We are very proud to hear the massive sounds of a 40 piece orchestra being captured by AA mics on Amy's recent album.
Amy's sax is done with the CM67se and a Royer SF-24V. Check out the tech sheet and some more info on the session. Read more.
First, was Atlantico Blue Studios just outside Lisbon, where they have not one, but two original ELA M251's that we could put the CM251 up against.
Atlantico Blue's studio A with a Neve 88 Console.
|The CM251 and the vintage ELA M251|
The initial tests (Scotty's " 1,2,3,4" radio voice) had most in the room curious if the mics were actually being switched! Further recordings on piano and vox revelaed just how similar the mics were. Listen and read more about the trip>>
The CM414 can do it all, even the kitchen sink! Here it is shining on foley and drums in a recent Target commercial.
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!
