The Audix M55 Ceiling Mic System “Simple to install and configure... simply amazing !”
The M55 offers four interchangeable capsules – omni, cardioid, hypercardioid, and supercardioid (shotgun) – and is optimized for speech. Its electronics are fully integrated, high sensitivity, low noise, and the signal output is balanced, so cell phones and GSM devices do not cause RF interference
Installing the M55 requires drilling just one 5/8-inch hole in the ceiling, with no additional tools needed. The M55’s mounting hardware easily adjusts the hanging height up to four feet from the ceiling surface without removing ceiling tiles. An aiming clip (two options) makes additional angular adjustments easy and requires no tools. The cable assembly, with its Phoenix connector, is neatly housed in an airtight, plenum-rated
junction box. A wire safety cable provides additional seismic restraint.
An excerpt from a video produced by Midtown Video featuring the MicroBoom with M1280S shotgun capsule. It is not only informative but very impressive when they switch from the lavaliere mic to the M1280S.
Thanks to Lofty (our favorite Brit!) for acquiring this edited clip!

How many artists of diverse nationality, musical styles and Audix microphones can you fit onto one stage? International music group Scurdia is committed to answering this question!
Scurdia was formed by Austrian piano virtuoso Markus Schirmer with his artistic alter ego - oriental Oud Master Risgar Koshnaw, Scurdia is an eclectic group of musicians from Austria, Armenia, Bosnia, Iran, Iraq, Netherlands, USA, and Venezuela who together skillfully and artfully blend diverse world music styles into an eclectic, hectic and wonderfully entertaining musical mélange. Schirmer describes their sound as "A blend of middle eastern folk, jazz, soul, funk, ethnic, Austro and of course, classical music"!
In a live concert series recorded earlier this year at the Opera House in Gras, Austria, Audix mics were used extensively for vocals and for miking a myriad of instruments including percussion, tuba, accordion, strings, reeds and woodwinds.
D Series dynamic mics were used liberally for percussion and Leslie (Hammond B3). The CX112 condenser mics added top-end coverage throughout the performance. The ADX60 Boundary mic was used on cajon and percussion box, while a clip-on ADX20i covered the tuba.
