San Francisco Lauten Audio Listening Event

Last Wednesday we hosted our second Lauten Audio listening party of the month with cosponsor Cutting Edge Audio and the tremendous help of Matt Boudreau, owner of the magic Broken Radio studios. Trust me, there is nothing "broken" about them.

Matt McGlynn over at summed up our events perfectly. "We all read about new microphones all the time — especially those of you who hang around this website! — but we don’t very often get a chance to hear them....
Lauten Audio is working to patch this disconnect, by hosting a series of listening parties around California. These events provide an opportunity to hear Lauten’s mics on real artists, through great signal chains, over great monitors, in treated control rooms."

Our event on Wednesday featured the new up and coming recording artist Chi McClean ( Chi performed brilliantly at the event as we all nit-picked about mic placement, guitar and amplifier tone etc etc. What else would you expected from a bunch of timbre huggers? Joke, get it? One thing was for certain, we all gave praise regarding the tone of Chi's voice. He was clearly born and blessed with a fantastic voice. I see sold out College campus shows and famous theaters in his future. Did I mention I'm not a fan of indoor stadiums?

Cutting Edge Microphone Clinic


Lauten Audio microphones continue to carve out a niche for recordists seeking microphones with an original, sound-empowering passion. The company added to their award-winning Horizon tube microphone in October 2008 and began shipping three new studio microphones. Their Oceanus and Torch microphones were recently added to the "Best of" list of upper-class microphones by the Germany-based Professional Audio Musik & Equipment magazine. All of Lauten Audio's microphones have garnered exceptional reviews from both end-users and magazines around the world. Come hear for yourself.


One of the most historic Bay Area recording studios is here in San Francsico.
It was originally built in 1969 by Mercury Records and later redesigned and run by the famous engineer, producer and businessman Bill Putnam as Coast Recorders for many years. 1340 Mission has been known under a small variety of names since 1969 including Mercury, Coast, Toast then back to Coast. In June of 2007 producer, engineer Matt Boudreau took over the recording space at 1340 Mission to start a new history under the name Broken Radio. This is a rare opportunity to hear the latest from Lauten microphones in one of the most venerable Bay Area studios.
