We are pleased to announce a partnership with Dr. Jonathan Cresci, Director of Frederick Community College’s Audio Production Program. Dr. Jon and his students are assisting us in a huge way. They are conducting microphone character analyses on the microphones in our ‘mic locker.’ Essentially, they will record a variety of instruments using the microphones we have access to and document their findings on how the mics respond to each task. This data is extremely useful, as it will help us anticipate what mics we might choose when we have a need to record a particular family of instruments. As Phase I is now open (and there was much rejoicing!), we will be able to put this knowledge to immediate and long term use. Thanks FCC, Dr. C, and Audio Production students!
