Tone with FSTV microphoneEpisode 3 from our 2010 season of Factory Sound TV, and the theme of interviews continues. This time it’s with Ken Kimura from DPA microphones. He gives us the lowdown on some of the newer microphones coming out of the Danish company that is so well respected for their natural sounding microphones – and he gives us the scoop on what is just about to come out. Plus there’s a bit of interesting info about the Space Shuttle… Read More »

bulletproofOk, we like this one. Even if it wasn’t our idea, we hope that Uli Behringer was at least a little inspired by Factory Sound TV. In case you haven’t seen it yet, the video clip is a ripper ad for the new range of Behringer mixers, which are actually packed with even more features than the last Xenyx series.
