  • Friday Night at the Pacific Audio Fest

    Genesis and Merrill Audio jointly sponsored a live big band event for the Pacific Audio Fest. We had the Kings of Swing with Paul Sawtelle and featured the vocalist Bethany Wilson. It was a great opportunity to experience first-hand the scale and power of a 17-piece dance band. 5 saxophones, 4 trombones, 4 trumpets, double bass, keyboards, drums and vocalist. Unfortunately, the brass and woodwinds over-powered the sound system at the live performance.

    However, we had Dr Phillip Chance and Ki Choi record the band with a Nagra VI as a mixing console and a Nagra IVs with QGB rolling SM900 tape. The main stereo pair of microphones were a pair of Neuman TLM 50. The next day, we played the freshly recorded tapes through our system.

      Here are a few videos of the performance. The video was recorded on a Canon 5D Mk II, and the audio on a Nagra VI. The main stereo mics were Neumann TLM 50, and a feed was taken from the vocal mic.
