October 2009 Meeting

Date: Sunday, October 18, 2009
Time: 6:00 PM
Place: Boston University, Life Science & Engineering Bldg, 24 Cummington St, 1st Floor Conference Room (Room 103), Boston, MA 02215, (617) 271-6588

Featured Guests: Chairmen of Microphone Testing Clinic

Topic: Microphone Clinic Demonstrations & Early Registration

Our October meeting will include a discussion, demonstration, and early registration for the BAS Microphone Test Clinic.

The actual clinic will be held on November 21 (Saturday) between 12:00 Noon to 6:00 PM.

The Microphone Clinic Committee, as usual, will include tests that are typically not listed in published specifications but are important in microphone quality.

(1) Impulse & Polarity
(2) Frequency Response & Polar Pattern
(3) Noise & Sensitivity
(4) SPL Overload
(5) Recording Distance Sensitivity (Proximity Effect)

The Clinic Chairmen will have the ability to test about 30 microphones, one every 10 minutes. The costs will be $5 for each microphone. We ask BAS members and non-members to submit for testing microphones that most recording engineers would find interesting. We anticipate more request than available times/spaces.

After all requests are received, you will receive an e-mail designating the time to bring your microphone for testing.
