New York, NY (October 4, 2005)–Later this week at the NYC AES Convention, Studio Projects will launch the CS Series of its condenser microphones and show the SP-828, a new eight channel mic preamplifier with built in two-buss mixer.
Sporting an entirely new look, with “lollypop” style capsules, the CS series picks up where the Studio Projects C Series left off. “As a microphone company, Studio Projects is known for delivering a great sounding product at a very low price,” said Alan Hyatt, CEO of PMI Audio Group. “The CS Series continues that tradition, but is designed for the more demanding user, those with a more sophisticated ear who are willing to invest more money into a microphone.”
The first microphone in the series is the CS1, a single pattern (cardioid) large diaphragm condenser. Three thumb-wheels are positioned just under the windscreen, rotating perpendicular to the axis of the body, controlling High Pass Filters (50hz, 75hz, 150hz, 300hz), Low Pass Filters (3Khz, 5Khz, 7Khz, 15Khz) and Pad (-5dB, -10dB, -15dB, -20dB). A small window adjacent to each thumbwheel indicates the state of adjustment. The CS5 is a dual diaphragm multi-pattern large diaphragm condenser. Combined with all the features of the CS1, a fourth thumb-wheel has been added to allow users to adjust Pattern (cardioid, wide cardioid, hyper-cardioid, omni, figure-of-eight).
Targeted squarely at DAW and remote recordists, the SP-828 combines eight Burr-Brown mic pre’s with a built in stereo mixer. Each channel has 48V Phantom Power, Phase Reverse, Solo, and Direct Outputs, with LED Peak and Signal Present indicators. The Mic/Line switch doubles as a -10dB PAD when no connector is present at the Line Input. Dual 9 segment bar graph meters allow visual monitoring of Solo or Output. Housed in a rugged 1u steel chassis, the SP-828 sports an attractive brushed aluminum face plate with easy to read nomenclature, and is laid out in a user-friendly configuration. Up to four units can be linked together, for 32 channels (with direct outputs) that sub-mix to stereo and headphone outs for monitoring.
Studio Projects is exclusively distributed in the United States by PMI Audio Group, Gardena, California.
