New York, NY (September 24, 2014)—Rob Macomber, chief engineer of the Music Studios at Jazz at Lincoln Center for SiriusXM Satellite Radio, employs Sanken stereo CUW-180 microphones on a regular basis.
In his nine year tenure at SiriusXM, Macomber has worked with such artists as Wynton Marsalis, Bobby McFerrin, Eric Clapton, Willie Nelson, Paul Simon, Sting, Beyonce, Santana, Andrea Bocelli, Chick Corea, Dave Brubeck and Joshua Bell. He has recorded and/or mixed music for television broadcasts such as the Tony Awards, the MTV Video Music Awards, Country Music Awards, American Music Awards, Victoria Secret Fashion Show and numerous DVDs and concert films.
"The CUW-180s perform wonderfully anywhere and everywhere," says Macomber, a Grammy and Emmy Award winner. "On a regular basis I use them as a pair over the stage for ambience. That's my standard main stereo pickup over the stage. Eight feet up or so, at the lip of the stage angled at 45 degrees. I also use them for ensemble sections, like trombones and trumpets. As a section mic it is fabulous."
