Session Notes | About Us
 

The Jam Room Sessions goal is to provide fair and accurate comparisons of microphones (and other equipment) in real world situations. However, humans are…human. As such, no two performances will ever be exactly the same. We realize this flaw, yet find the results of these clips to be helpful in the decision making process for potential buyers easier. I would caution taking these clips as the "be all end all" of microphone information. Hear them for yourself, that is always the best method of selecting microphones for your studio. We hope this serves as a guide.

All vocal recordings, acoustic guitar and drum clips are cut live one after the other, positioning the mics virtually the same way for each take. The distance is pre-determined by choosing several mics and finding out their most balanced "sweet spot". The electric guitar cabinet tracks we are able to re-amp the signal for consistent use (within each session). Every clip lists the recording chain & instrument used. We have listed the microphones below, and which session features each mic.

The Jam Room Sessions are brought to you by the Jam Room Recording Studio & FrontEndAudio.com. It is not free, although it is being offered at no charge to you. Please remember us when making your next pro audio purchase! We try to support the community above and beyond and appreciate your business.
