This time we have gone to far greater lengths to ensure that the sound quality of our YouTube demonstration videos is as good as it possibly can be. We understand that listening via the internet often means using a quite poor speaker system so the starting quality is not always significant but, with increasing use of the internet to receive high quality sound and video, we thought we had better ensure that we only broadcast the very highest quality possible audio to represent our instruments.
As you can see from the pictures we brought in quite a lot of equipment for this session setting up a small studio to enable us to listen straight away to the recording and audition the various microphone positions.
The ladder you can see in the bottom right hand picture was an unexpected requirement. It was used to dampen down a light fitting that was rattling in sympathy with the 16ft open metal bass G. We also invested in an auto-cue system so that the speaking sections are better presented.
The first of the new pieces with improved sound will be released in February 2015.
