“My objective is to capture the live sound. Right off the top, the Sanken CU-44X with direct output is really one of the most amazing mics I’ve ever heard. It’s just better than any other condenser that I’ve used in my career. ”
Grammy award-winning engineer/producer, Frank Filipetti credits include, Rod Stewart, Elton John, James Taylor
“A lot of my work is mixing but my favorite thing to do is to record a bunch of musicians in a room.”
Grammy award-winning engineer/producer, Chuck Ainlay credits include, George Strait, Mark Knopfler, and Taylor Swift
“I have a couple of the new Sanken CU-55s, which I absolutely love. But the ones that just blow my mind, and they’re indescribable, are the CO-100K microphones. I actually don’t know why they sound the way they do, but they’re ridiculous.”
United Recording Studio Staff Engineer – credits include, Brian Wilson, Carly Rae Jepson, Downset
As staff engineer at the historic United Recording Studio, Wes gets to work with many different musicians and has spent a lot of time finding the right mic for recording different instruments and singers. His favorite Sanken Chromatic mics are the CO-100k, CU-51 and the CU-55.
“The new microphones do something that the old ones don’t. More and more in the blind tests people are picking the CU-51”
