Newark, NJ (February 22, 2017)—Mojave Audio’s MA-201fet condenser microphone is a favorite at the studios of Audible, the world’s largest producer of downloadable audiobooks and the United States’ largest audiobook producer and retailer.
“A colleague introduced me to Mojave Audio’s microphones back in 2008,” reports Darren Vermaas, an associate manager and post production engineer at Audible Studios. “I use the MA-201fet due to its incredible clarity and ability to capture a true representation of the voice without needing additional EQ processing. This microphone is a first choice for any voiceover recording, and for music production, I also love it on kick drum, upright bass, and of course, vocals. This is a remarkably capable microphone. Presently, I have one MA-201fet, with another three mics on order.”
Vermaas has engineered and directed numerous celebrity narrations, including Emma Thompson, Richard Armitage and Arianna Huffington.
“The MA-201fet is a no-frills mic that is built like a tank and sounds great on just about every performer you put in front of it," he said. "Because of this, the microphone saves me time on productions, and any time saved is a big plus when you’re working with long-form audio. The mic’s sound quality meets and exceeds that of other industry standard microphones.”
Vermaas adds, “I was compelled to reach out to Mojave Audio’s customer service to find out how I could help spread the word about their mics, but honestly did not expect a response. I was really impressed when Dusty Wakeman—the company’s president— wrote me back personally to thank me for reaching out and then made the time to speak with me by phone. It’s a great indicator of the quality of people at Mojave, which reflects upon the quality of their products.”
