New York, NY (October 19, 2012)—A card game based on Neumann’s current and selected classic microphones is now available to download as a free iOS app for the iPhone, iPad and iPod. Its self-explanatory name is Neumann Card Game App.
The rules are simple: The winner is the player who knows which microphones can handle the highest sound pressure levels, have the lowest self-noise, have the greatest number of directional characteristics or have been available on the market the longest.
The app has a single-player mode with two levels of difficulty, where players match their skill against the computer, and a multi-player mode using Bluetooth. In each case, a game of 10 or 20 rounds can be played, or the game can finish when one player has no more cards.
”In an entertaining way, aspiring and experienced audio engineers will learn many things about the strengths of individual mics, and can test their knowledge,” said Wolfgang Fraissinet, President, Neumann.Berlin.
In addition to its role as a game, the app can function as a miniature product catalog. It also contains information about areas of application – for both analog and digital mics.
