Real-World Review: Zylia Recording System

"We're excited about bringing the ZM-1 to the La Roche Bluegrass Festival, because it is the perfect one-mic solution for capturing bluegrass music, practices, impromptu jam sessions, and scheduled performances," said Tomasz Żernicki, Zylia co-founder and chief technology officer. "The unique recording capabilities of the ZM-1 microphone array and the processing capabilities of ZYLIA Studio allow musicians to obtain a great-quality recording, extract individual instruments into separate tracks, adjust the volume and panning of those instruments, or automix them."
