Audix has announced the release of its new BP5 Pro and BP7 Pro microphone Band Packs.
As the first company to release professional instrument microphone pack ensembles to the market, Audix’s new BP5 Pro and BP7 Pro Band Packs come complete with five and seven-piece studio-quality microphones respectively.
Also new for 2012 are two lower-cost equivalent Band Packs, which appear in the form of the BP5F and the BP7F. These combinations include microphones from the dynamic Fusion Series. The Band Packs were put together with microphones that have been used by artists, engineers and sound companies for many years.
Audix co-founder and vice presidnet of sales, Cliff Castle, explained: "The Band Pack idea evolved after years of working with artists and engineers on all performance levels. Because the Audix instrument microphone packs were a tremendous success, the next logical step was to offer complete ensembles, which include both vocal and instrument microphones that complement each other and work in tandem.
“Staying true to our mic pack philosophy, we are able to provide pre-packaged microphone sets at a huge savings compared with purchasing the mics individually."
The BP5 PRO is a five-piece professional microphone pack, which includes the D6 and i5 instrument mics, primarily used for micing kick and snare drums, while the OM5 lead vocal dynamic microphone and two OM2 dynamic vocal mics for support complete the Pack. The BP7 PRO is the same package with two additional microphones – the i5 dynamics, for micing guitar and bass cabinets a well as a variety of other instruments.
Castle also commented: "In order to satisfy all market demographics, Audix chose to offer the same Band Pack Pro configurations in our cost effective Fusion Series. Not to be underestimated, the Fusion Series mics offer excellent performance and affordability.”
