Placerville, CA (May 8, 2006)–Fox Channel 6 in San Diego recently installed Millennia HD-3D mic preamplifiers and TD-1 channel strips for their Emmy Award-winning live music show, Fox Rox.
FOX engineers Mike Klowas holding a TD-1 and Sean Dailey pointing to an HV-3D”These preamps are insane,” said Fox 6 engineer Sean Dailey. “With the same mics, we are hearing things we have never heard before. We are hearing harmonics, higher and lower frequencies that just were not getting to the mixer before Millennia Media.”
“When we crack open the mics on the mixer now, our jaws just drop,” commented engineer Mike Klowas. “Vocals through our Audix OM-7’s are so detailed and have such sparkle, that the mics sound like large diaphragm studio mics now.
“The amount of information coming off the mic is huge. What is literally produced by the singer is heard; it sounds as if the singer is standing next to you. We can actually lower volume levels and still get a better ‘sound’ now, which is critical when recording to digital videotape.
“There’s also less need for EQ to make the instruments mix together. The wide open sound allows the various instrument frequencies to mix naturally. Thanks to Millennia’s outstanding quality products, Fox Rox has the world class sound we have only dreamed about–and that makes mixing quality audio so much easier.”
