Los Angeles, CA (May 1, 2018)—Telefunken Elektroakustik sponsored The Unstoppable Recording Machine online recording school’s Nail the Mix contest in March, presenting winner Thomas Ferrell with a Telefunken AK-47 MkII large diaphragm tube microphone.
March's Nail the Mix contest featured the band Bring Me the Horizon and its song, "Doomed." Each student at URM was given the raw multi-tracks that were used on the released album by the band and submitted their own mixed version of the song. The community and staff of URM then voted on mixes that are given a number, to keep it anonymous. The winner is announced at the end of the month.
Telefunken’s Connor Rowen explained, "The Unstoppable Recording Machine is an educational community of many young and enthusiastic producers and engineers that maintains the feeling of being in a close and personal classroom through a dedicated staff and helpful group of peers. Eyal, Joel, and Joey were extremely easy to work with and made the process quite enjoyable. Through Nail the Mix, Mix Lab, and other courses provided, the guys at URM give aspiring producers and engineers the tools they need for success on levels that, as a degree holder in the field, I have not seen in any other educational setting by far. We are more than satisfied with our sponsorship of Nail the Mix and intend to work again with Eyal, Joel, and Joey in the near future."
URM Academy co-founder Eyal Levi, best known for his work with bands such as Chelsea Grin and The Black Dahlia Murder, comments, "What is there to say about Telefunken that hasn't already been said? They're one of the true classic audio gear manufacturers and have created gear that actually makes a difference."
