November 2013 marked a big milestone for Advanced Audio with the launch of our European division and webpage, Advanced Audio Europe.
Happy to have our CM12 and CM47 recently reviewed in Sound on Sound!!!
Paul White reviews the CM12 and CM47 in the December issue of Sound on Sound. It hits the shops in Europe Nov 21 2013.
"To my ears the CM12 has a much more airy sound than my AKG C12VR, with a more controlled low end. There’s just an inherent ‘rightness’ to the sound that’s hard to put into words"
The company traveled to New York City in October 2013 for the AES convention and we appreciate everyone who came to see us and chat microphones. Thank-you NYC!!!
Jon Smeltz stopped in to scream "Thank-you!" for his CM12se that he carries in his briefcase. Jon has recorded Al Green, Mariah Cary, Miles Davis and Toots and the Maytals to name but a few.
Chuck Ainlay came by to check out our mics and chat with Dave about something they are both very passionate about: The need for groups, like the AES, who provide accurate information about gear and recording techniques to new engineers.

The beautiful Portuguese Fado artist Maria Ana Bobone and producer Rodrigo Serrao in the truly amazing Atlantico Blue Studios, in Lisbon, Portugal. Testing several Advanced Audio mics for an up and coming production, AA mics were put up along side the vintage Neumann and AKG classics, which Atlantico Blue has no shortage of.. Once again AA mics were beating the "classics", and in most cases the preferred microphone.

We got a little nod over at Mix Magazine in Wes Maebe's review of the best gear at the AES this year. The CM414 has long been Dave's favorite for overheads on piano or drums, but he also adds, "Sometimes if you want an acoustic guitar to...
We are proud of what our friends do with our microphones. Send us your work to be considered for "Mics in Motion". Here is a great example of the CM414's in XY cardioid on a peformance of Nun Wandre, Marie by pianist Andrew Kraus and Jennifer Paschal. Read more about what Andrew had to say about the recording.
