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
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.
