Audio-Technica AT4050/LE Winner
If you saw my recent review of the AT4050, you know I think it's a great workhorse mic. I liked it a lot on drums, and I've since had a chance to hear it on female vox, where it shined. I ended up keeping the one I reviewed, so that should tell you something.
Our most recent drawing was for the commemorative anniversary model, the AT4050/LE. I'm excited to finally announce the winner:
Congratulations to Matt Parmenter of Austin, TX!
Matt started recording with a "Vietnam-era Sony reel-to-reel," moved on to borrowed 4-tracks, and ultimately built a studio in Chicago's Sterling Ice Cream Factory building. He relocated to Austin in 2008, where the current incarnation of Ice Cream Factory Studio houses two rooms, an amp closet, and a growing collection af mics, pres, outboard gear, and instruments. And a shiny new multipattern FET condenser from the good folks at Audio-Technica.
Matt's work in the local music scene was recently recognized by the Austin Music Awards, which picked one of his productions for best album, song, band and producer (!). Check out the record, Quiet Company's "Where We All Belong" -- now streaming via Bandcamp.
Congratulations on both wins, Matt!
