The worlds most realistic recordings? - Simpson Microphones calls for musician listeners



As part of our on-going research & development, Simpson Microphones (Poland) would like to hear from musicians & listeners of classical music.

After the recent introduction of a new class of microphone we are in the process of conducting subjective trials, in order to gauge the subjective improvements that accompany a large reduction in mechanical distortion.

As you may or may not be aware, until the introduction of the Model A, microphones had not fundamentally changed since the 1930s, so this is an exciting time for recorded music.

When we perform location testing, due to the improved mechanical performance of the new class of microphone our recordings are very hard to tell from the real source, but we are interested in how this improved mechanical performance affects your listening experience.

All we want you to do is listen to the following recordings and tell us how you perceive the sound quality (please include details of your listening system):

Early Music Clip A.mp3

Early Music Clip B.mp3

* high-resolution .WAV files or CD also available by request

These recordings were taken during a live concert that was part of the Jaroslaw Early Music Festival (Poland) and feature string ensemble with Soprano, Male Alto, Tenor , Bass & choir.

The material is from the period 1600-1700, the composers are Antonio Caldara & Arcangelo Corelli.

The recordings themselves are 2-microphone stereo recordings, calibrated to sound essentially identical to the real source.


You can post your impressions here or write them anonymously via email to this address: Feedback at SimpsonMicrophones.com

For example, do you notice a reduction in the sound of 'mechanical stress' in the recordings? - a feeling of dynamic freedom? - reduced ear-fatigue? More natural timbre?

Thank you for your time & help, we hope to hear from you soon.
