Paris, France (May 17, 2006)–French studio engineer, consultant, and high-end recording equipment seller Christophe Bouillot will be joining forces with microphone manufacturer Crowley and Tripp at this year’s AES Paris 2006 Show, May 20-23. Christophe, who has been involved with studio recording for years and now operates from his Chevilly-Larue, France location, will be a new face at AES this year, along with Crowley and Tripp Microphones, introduced by their U.S.-based product manager Christopher Regan. The two will be demonstrating the new Crowley and Tripp Naked Eye dual voiced ribbon microphone at the show, and also at Twin Studios in Paris each evening of the show.
Crowley and Tripp’s Naked Eye microphone”The new dual voiced Naked Eye ribbon mic has been very well received in early appearances in Europe, and we look forward to introducing it at AES Paris,” remarked Regan. “The Naked Eye design is inspired by the sound of Crowley and Tripp’s highly regarded Proscenium and Studio Vocalist microphones. It is geared toward personal studio owners and artists who require greater flexibility and robust output with low noise, which is something that Crowley and Tripp have become known for.”
Bouillot, who recently used the Crowley and Tripp microphones to record the score of the French film OSS 117 Le Caire: Nid D’Espions, remarked, “Audio Addict is very, very happy with the Crowley and Tripp mics. They have a sound that is smooth like a ribbon, but with the desirable sound of a large diaphragm condenser that makes them much more useable than most ordinary ribbon mics. Everybody is amazed when they first hear them. They have no direct comparisons in either ribbon or condenser categories, are very versatile, and are the product of some high tech research going on by people with serious experience in acoustics.”
Crowley and Tripp and Audio Addict will have live demos of the microphones at booth #1929 throughout the AES show. Models that will be exhibited include the Soundstage Image, Proscenium, Studio Vocalist, and new Naked Eye ribbon microphones, all hand-built in the USA.
