Don't miss these awesome CDs!

Hi!

To some of you these CDs might be very familiar, but for those who haven't seen these CDs before I think you might be interested... (I'm not a sales man, I am an audiophile!!) This is pretty important stuff in recording...!

"The 3D Mic CD is a Redbook CD that features a male and a female vocalist singing through 49 different vocal mics, ranging from a Shure SM57 (under $100) to a Telefunken 251 (over $20,000). These high-resolution recordings (originally recorded at 24-bit, 88.2 kHz) will allow you to audition the largest collection of vocal mics ever assembled on male and female voice. Over 70 minutes of solo voice recordings (98 cuts) present each mic in a precisely calibrated setting so you can hear the differences for yourself in your studio on your monitors. Is one mic worth 200 times as much as another? You listen and decide for yourself. The CD includes a 16-page color insert with pictures of all the mics and the listening party, technical details of the testing, and the all-important key which identifies each mic. This is an invaluable resource for anyone who wants to learn more about microphones. The mics included are: ADK A-51 t.III, AEA R44C, AKG C-12, AKG C-414, AKG C-414 B-ULS, AKG C 3000B, AKG Solid Tube, Audio-Technica 4033, Audio-Technica 4047, Audio-Technica 4050, Audio-Technica 4060, BLUE Bottle, BLUE Dragonfly, BLUE Mouse, Brauner VM-1, CAD VSM, Coles 4038, DPA 3541, Earthworks QTC-1, ElectroVoice RE-20, GT Electronics AM 62, Lawson L251, Lawson L47MP, MM 2000 "MagMic", Manley Reference Gold, Manley Reference Cardioid, Microtech-Gefell M930, Neumann M-49, Neumann M-147, Neumann M-149, Neumann TLM 103, Neumann U-47, Neumann U-67, Neumann U-87ai, Rode Classic, Royer R-121, Sanken CU-41, Sennheiser 441, Sennheiser MKH-800 P48, Sheffield C-9, Shure KSM-32, Shure KSM-44, Shure SM-7, Shure SM-57, Sony C-800G, Soundelux U95S, Soundelux U99, Soundelux Elux 251, Telefunken ELA M-251."
