PNW AES Section

April Meeting Notice

The Ribbon Microphone Resurgence
London Bridge Studio Tour

Presented by
Cascade Microphones
London Bridge Studios

Thursday, April 24th, 7:00pm
London Bridge Studios

Directions to London Bridge Studios

n.b. In order to accommodate the studio tour, this meeting starts 1/2-hour earlier than our usual start time.

The AES PNW Section welcomes Cascade Microphones' presentation focusing on a number of factors that have led to a modern ribbon microphone re-evolution. The discussion will include a brief history of ribbon microphones, the manufacturing and mechanics of modern ribbon microphones, and their practical uses in the studio and in live sound. Cascade will also discuss their particular brand, including some critical listening and live demonstration at London Bridge Studio.

Arrive early and take a tour of London Bridge Studio. London Bridge is noteworthy for having been a part of some world-changing and successful recordings from the 90s such as Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, and Blind Melon as well as many modern artists like Cat Power, Fleet Foxes, and Death Cab for Cutie. The studio's unique design continues to make it a worthwhile visit for music fans and artists alike. The studio is currently raising awareness to restore their classic Neve recording console so that they can continue offering the unique "Seattle Sound" they are known for well into the future.

Our Presenter

Ken Levy is the current general manager of Cascade Microphones and oversees all business operations within the company.
