Audix, who has been manufacturing the OM series since the early 1990’s, is launching a new campaign called "My Mic. My Voice." The campaign features real world users and is aimed at the gigging and aspiring musician. Audix VP of Sales, Cliff Castle, states, “Audix has developed a huge following for the OM series mics in the pro market, and we are now stressing in this campaign that for every singer, their mic is their voice.”
“As a result of this campaign”, Castle continues, “we intend to drive more customers into your stores.”
The ads will feature stylistic photos of a real world vocalist along with a testimonial letter as to why they rely on Audix for their vocal microphone. Along with the campaign will be videos to support the concept “How to Choose a Vocal Microphone” and “How to Use aVocal Microphone.”

To be entirely frank, I’ve never been a fan of prepackaged drum mics. While convenient, these usually take a one-size-fits-all approach, often with too many compromises over the à la carte style of selecting mics one at a time. That said, I’ve been a fan of Audix vocal and instrument mics and have been using its D4/D6/i5 drum mics for some time with great results. So when Audix announced the FP7, a mid-priced ($479), seven-piece drum mic package, I was curious, especially considering it’s about half the $900 street cost of the company’s high-end DP7 package....

Sometimes drum microphone packs are simply a group of existing products packaged with a case, which can be a cool way to get several decent mics at a good price. But other times the packs are rebranded inexpensive transducers that are typically decent for the money and will do until you can afford something better. I usually recommend that you find solid individual models that will give you the results you want for the long term and that you buy only as many as you can afford, adding more along the way. Audix has totally redesigned its Fusion series drum microphones, which are available singly and in packs. These aren’t bundles of existing top-line mics (which are also available in packs); they’re entirely new models. They were designed by the same wizard who came up with the company’s popular D6, i-5, and SCX25A, with component manufacturing handled overseas and assembly and testing done back here.

It is with extreme regret that we announce the passing of another industry leader and our very dear friend Keith Wilson.
Keith and the rest of the team at Audio Supply – Cathleen and Lauren (Ryann and Reese!) are family.
We mourn the loss of such a dedicated and inspiring man. At the same time, we celebrate his life finding some comfort in viewing this clip posted by NAMM – Keith was added to NAMM’s Oral history library last year.
(February 10, 2010) – Often credited as being one of the all time greatest guitarists and known amongst his peers as one of the all time greatest collaborators, the ultimate Clapton collaboration will take place June 26, 2010. For one day only, Clapton will gather the past, present and future of guitar music onto one stage for an incredible full day musical event. Announced today, the third Crossroads Guitar Festival, scheduled for June 26, 2010 at Toyota Park in Chicago, will be a cornerstone of this year’s summer music festival season. Fans should note that gates open at 10am. All profits from the Festival will benefit The Crossroads Centre in Antigua, a treatment and education facility founded by Clapton for chemically dependent persons. The Festival will be presented by T-Mobile myTouch.

Here are the final versions of the “How to mic your drums” video that were shown at NAMM.
These are the first definitive videos on how to mic your drums with clear explanations and useful examples. It is divided into 7 chapters.
Dean K has used AUDIX mics for more on air recordings than anyone else out there and Mike Snyder is a professional clinician (for Roland) who speaks directly to drummers in terms they can understand.
These videos will be on YouTube soon but for higher audio and video resolution we subscribed to Vimeo and suggest that they be viewed there. For faster viewing make sure the “high def” option is turned off. AUDIX will also be making a DVD to be included with all DP series packs.
