South Windsor, CT (May 30, 2013)-Telefunken Elektroakustik has announced a new monthly mixing contest, Telefunken Multi Track Sessions Live, in partnership with Indaba Music.
Each month, a new song recorded exclusively with Telefunken microphones, live on stage in front of an audience, will be available for download as part of the mixing contest. “Go Go Go,” recorded live with Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers, is the first song in the ongoing monthly contest. Bluhm previously released a solo record before relaunching her country soul career with the Gramblers.
Contest participants can enter by submitting their mixes via the Indaba Music contest page. The top 10 mixes will be determined by popular vote, with a winning mix judged by the artist and Telefunken’s staff members.
Each month, both the winner and the popular vote winner will receive a Telefunken microphone. Prizes include microphones from the R-F-T and Dynamic Series, including the M82 Dynamic, M81 Universal Dynamic and the M80 Dynamic, as well as the CU-29 Copperhead, AR-51, AK-47mkII and the ELA M 260.
Focusing on the Dynamic Series, Telefunken’s Multi Track Sessions LIVE recordings feature the newly released M82 on kick drum alongside the M81 on guitars and toms, and the M80 on vocals and snare drum, as well as the ELA M 260 small diaphragm tube mic on drum overheads and room mics.
