Quinn Reviews the Novation Impulse 25

This is a 25 full size key midi controller (it does not generate sound on its own) with midi in and out, USB connectivity, as well as inputs for both sustain and expression pedals. Keep in mind, if you plan on using this with your computer you do need to download the latest drivers for everything to work properly. That being said, once installed you can take full advantage of the features built into the controller. You have the option of using Automap software which does just that, automatically maps the controls to whatever software or plugin you are using....


Cables Make the System

Posted by Phil Miller on

We use cables everyday in the audio industry. Whether its the permanent install cable we pull into conduits and chases at customer sites, in the recording studio, or stage cables when running a live show. Each application has a different set of requirements and trade-offs for price, gauge, durability, twist-rate, shielding or flame/smoke resistance just to name a few.   When choosing cables for stage use, we highly recommend paying extra attention to durability. The jacket needs to resist abrasion and remain flexible. The conductors need to be large enough to handle the signal level that runs through it without...


Introducing Cloud Microphone's JRS-34 – Microphone

Posted by Phil Miller on

Made in the USA. Not a phrase we hear often in the audio industry any more.

MightyMics Welcomes Shure To The Lineup

Posted by Phil Miller on

Shure. When I hear that name I think about enduring quality. The SM58 was one of the first microphones I ever used as we trekked our small music theatre group around the midwest. We were fanatics about taking care of our equipment, but accidents do happen. The Shure products survived our ventures and our mishaps. I wish I had those old mics in my collection, I wonder where they went.But we have a stack of new product in our warehouse. Call us up and you can start your string of fond Shure memories.We're tickled to announce that we have added...
