This is just one of those rare cases where you can’t help but wonder why no one had thought of this idea before. Well, someone had to be the first and with the DX-2, MXL won this race easily as no one else saw it coming and even knew it was category.
Looping has been hot for several years, and there are no immediate indicators that the whole loop craze was just a flavour of the month phenomenon. Just one more reason why Solomon’s new Puq mic for cajon is a brilliant idea!
Solomon really nailed it with their LoFreq sub-mic for kick drums. Now they do it again, simply zooming in on a single application and a specific market segment – in this case cajon players. And then simply nailing it!
Sure, the LoFReQ sub mic from Solomon was created with kick drums in mind. But just like some bass players have also used it on their cabs, no rules are set in stone when it comes to recording.
Freestyle rap is such a cool phenomenon. You need to be extremely snappy and know your rhymes by heart. Improvising is the key and Harry Mack is among the best there is out there.
MXL are great at designing microphones for capturing music, but it doesn’t stop there. They also have a dedicated broadcast mic on the roster and it is on review in this video.
This demo is Indonesian. Luckily, music and sound is a universal language so the main part of this video is perfectly understandable by everyone.
Sound on Sound’s Will Betts stopped by MXL’s booth at Summer NAMM 2016 in Nashville when the DX-2 was being shown to the public for the very first time.
We have said it before, and now we’re saying it once again. The Solomon LoFReQ sound is hard to explain just in words – it needs to be heard to be believed.
Sure, if the venue is small a little kick drum support and maybe an overhead mic may be all you need, but if you need more than that, here is your complete drum mic solution.
