Nashville, TN (July 14, 2004)–The second Vocal Microphone Invitational, presented by Pro Sound News and AES Nashville, is scheduled for July 22 in Nashville, returning by popular demand to Belmont University’s Oceanway Nashville Studio A. Scheduled to participate in presentations and demonstrations at the event are manufacturers Shure, AKG, CAD, and ADK.
This year’s presentations will be similar in format to last year’s event, with a male and female vocalist on hand to perform on demand, their a cappella voices used to demonstrate differences between the microphones. Participating manufacturers will be given equal opportunity to make presentations, call upon the vocalists and will have an exhibit area with hardware, literature, and eager personnel ready to answer attendees’ queries. Manufacturers will also choose the microphones they present, with vocal microphones for stage and studio included. The event will begin midday, with a complete all star panel of studio and live engineers, discussing the art of capturing vocals will follow the serial presentations by manufacturers.
Clair Brothers Nashville is providing ace technical assistance for the event, with additional expertise from the AES Nashville section. Attendance is open and free for the greater Nashville engineering community, students and attendees of NAMM’s Summer Session. Additional schedule details and panelists will be announced later this week.
