The Memphis Chapter of The Recording Academy® and The Recording Academy's Producers & Engineers Wing (P&E Wing) presented a Mojave/Royer Microphone listening Session at Ardent Studios on Monday, November 5th. Microphones were set up in the studio and Susan Marshall and her band performed as the session was recorded. Attendees then listened to the tracks and asked questions about the different microphones and their placement. Microphones were then re-positioned and the band recorded again. Well-known producer and engineer Jeff Powell (Bob Dylan, Big Star, Beth Orton, Tonic, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Primal Scream, and The Afghan Whigs) hosted the event and ran sound. Dusty Wakeman of Mojave Audio also led the discussion and answered questions. The event allowed both members of The Recording Academy, as well as non-members insight into the audio engineering field. Attendees were given a great opportunity to network with fellow Memphians and with some of the leaders in the production and engineering field.
