Nashville, TN (May 30, 2012)—AudioVault has released MicVault Live, a companion iPhone app to its MicVault Studio, this time aimed at live sound engineers. The app provides miking advice from seasoned pros, helping users choose the best possible microphone to use on a particular sound source.
Aimed at all skill levels, from hobbyist to seasoned pro, MicVault Live provides microphone recommendations for everything from drums and percussion, to strings, guitars and vocals. And, if the recommended mic is beyond the user’s price range, the engineers offer a low-budget alternative when appropriate. Information is provided in a simple interface, and the app includes photos of all of the recommended microphones, as well as links to the microphone manufacturers’ websites.
MicVault Live draws upon the combined knowledge of Pro Audio Review contributor Jason Spence, Chris "Sully" Sullivan and Chris Taylor, whose combined credits include work with artists such as Michael Jackson, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Janet Jackson, Keith Urban, Barbara Streisand, Joe Cocker, Steven Curtis Chapman, Megadeth, Jewel, Conway Twitty, and Amy Grant. Their TV mix credits include the Grammy Awards, Super Bowl, CMA Awards, CMT Awards, MTV Awards Europe and the Garth Brooks Central Park concert.
AudioVault’s apps have been created with the development assistance of RedTruss Software, a company that has also created concert production apps such as Truck Loader, for keeping track of a truckpack, and KVA Calc, for helping estimate the correct size generator required for a show.
