That's madness. You can't sing AND listen.

Reminds me of recording my wife, who is a great singer BUT she will sing a couple takes and I'll motion to keep going and she will stop me and tell me the last one was great and I'll tell her it was a good performance but pitchy and she will have to hear it for herself to believe me. And I always tell her "you can't sing and listen critically at the same time". Of course her response is something like, meh.

Thanks! My chess skill honestly, has declined a bit though-finally at 60! But I'm having a blast though now, going back through the song catalog I grew up with. Mostly 60's/70's.

Like the Early Elton , ala Tiny Dancer etc.
It was always a little too high for me, so I'm thankful now I can sing that Low Tenor stuff now.

Hi, well we made about 13 demo units (finished units, sans retail packaging) which went out to a couple reviewers and mostly our major distributors around the world, so yes, likely your major distributor has a unit that they have heard and can use for demo. thanks. shipping units very soon.

Again guys, this is a tremendous "bang for the buck", general all rounder microphone.

Sounds exceptional too.

Thanks again Chad, for helping to put this together.

Surely you guys must have some content? I mean you probably did a few test recordings

It's peculiar nobody has heard this mic yet. Maybe they started their marketing too early. Clearly many people want to hear it, but I don't know many people who will pre-order a mic blind, after half a year of marketing. There is a reason nobody is hearing it. What that reason may be could be a number of things. Maybe they were expecting more pre-orders based solely on the marketing to fund the manufacturing and ran into a hurdle there. And now, with the state of things it could be till the fall. Who knows. Just speculating, but it is peculiar. If they wanted people to hear it, we would have heard it.

FWIW I'm sure Chad will do whatever he can, when he can. More than worth the wait-if you can wait.

Most of us "enthusiasts", aren't under as much deadline pressure, versus a Pro Studio.
Especially now!

First, many people HAVE heard the mic. At NAMM this past January. Second, as far as there being no demo's this is not peculiar at all. The mic has been on public display. There's a TON of stuff to do to bring a product to market, and Chad / United is not like Samsung, Phillips or Harman. It's a small operation with only so many man-hours to get all the work done -- when big companies have dozens of people to do the same jobs. I'm sure he'll have demos when he has time to do them. Until then, wait for the release. Then there will be 3rd party demos no doubt.

I disagree. When you have a MICROPHONE on pre-sale for nearly half a year you might consider making letting people hear it a priority. Anyone buying a microphone from the photos alone may be proven very foolish.

Yeah, but he's not selling microphones yet. From the best of my knowledge, there IS no pre-sale. Just an announcement that it's coming.

Wrong. It's on pre-sale on many online retailers and has been for months.
