Who uses AA mics?!

jack douglas


Jack Douglas has enjoyed a legendary career in music. After starting on Robert Kennedy's senatorial campaign, Douglas worked with a Who's Who of rock luminaries, from John Lennon and Yoko Ono to Aerosmith.

 "Advanced Audio has nailed the CM251 dead on! I love how easily it brings a source right to the front of the mix. This microphone captures a beautiful smooth tone from top to bottom. At the same time its robust and sturdy, taking everything I throw at it."

For Robbie the last few years have been pretty spectacular, culminating in 2 Grammys (Best Album, Best Engineered Album) for his work on Beck's 'Morning Phase' and the 2015 MPG Breakthrough Engineer of the Year award. After starting his career under Grammy winning producer Mike Hedges at the legendary Wessex Studios, Robbie went freelance back in 2004, becoming the engineer of choice for many leading producers.

Robbie has been using the CM12se and CM67se since getting them a few months back.

"I've been using the CM12se as my main mono drum overhead on pretty much everything I've done since we got it. I am pleased to say I am still loving both mics"

"The CM12SE became the principal vocal mic on this last album I've just done for EMI in London, sounded great on the lady in question, ahead of various mics M150, and M149 included.... So, thanks again for the quick turnaround, and informed advice. "

"I recently used one of your prototype CM12SE mics at Crew Studios in Vancouver, currently working on an Elvis Costello and the Roots album, it was perfect for Elvis´s voice and it sounded amazing. I´ll be mentioning you and your microphone in the credits of the album, it was that great. I don´t even have to EQ it.

Great work."

"AA microphones have immediately taken a place in my mic selection for tracking. They've been used to recording everything from drums to vocals. I'm able to make micing choices based on my preferences for their older counterparts and have very similar sonic result. The character of each AA microphone is true enough to it's inspiration that it's easy to achieve the sound I know I want without the need to use much in the way of EQ. With a price much lower than vintage or other boutique mics, they are an easy choice.
