Today we are shining light on another project that used Lauten Audio microphones.

Sally Jaye recently released her first full length record titled “Amarillo”. Sally Jaye originally comes from the south and now resides in Los Angeles. I have had the opportunity to see her live and can tell you she’s just as impressive live as she is on Amarillo. The album was produced by Will Holden, engineered and mixed by Mike Terry who’s credits include; Foo Fighters, Eagles and Jessica Simpson to name a few and mastered by Gavin Lurrsen of Lurrsen Mastering. The record was recorded to tape at New Monkey studios using some of the most sought after vintage equipment around. Check out New Monkey studios here

The Horizon can be heard on the Snare drum and bass and electric guitar amps among other areas.

Be sure to check out Sally Jaye’s new record. You can visit her myspace page here or purchase her cd here

Pacific Island Audio to Distribute for Lauten Audio in Canada

We are proud to announce that we have teamed up with Pacific Island Audio and Ron Sluzar to handle our Canadian distribution. Ron has many years into the professional audio industry and we feel great to have his company on board. Ron and I first started talking at winter NAMM this year. After a short introduction period, both Ron and I decided Pacific Island Audio and Lauten Audio would be an excellent fit. Ron can offer us the close personal touch that a new high-end microphone brand needs, and we can offer Ron a product that fits in-line with the other high-end professional audio products his company distributes.

If you are a dealer or consumer in Canada, be sure to give Ron a ring!

Impressed with the Horizon Tube Microphone

Below is an actual email from a recent Horizon tube microphone user.

"I just wanted to share how impressed I am with your Horizon mic. I had a client who was looking for a mic for his personal studio and having a fairly extensive collection he came along and we borrowed a few others from other studios including a Horizon from Aki at Eastern Acoustics.

After whittling it down to 3 possibles from 10 in all cases in a blind test the Horizon rose to the top beating out mics 5 times the price, needless to say my client took it from Aki.

While I don't own my own one it has jumped onto my priority list as it fills a void in my collection and offers another “tube” flavor. Kudos for bringing a great product to market.

Regards, Matt "

Thanks for the kind words Matt! We appreciate you taking the time to send us an email and for allowing us to let others know what you thought of the Horizon Tube Microphone.

Feedback from afar – Horizon on Voice Over and Spoken word

I received an email recently from David Teren of Sonic Junction in Windhoek, Namibia, Africa. David purchased a Horizon from Eastern Acoustics in Cape Town, South Africa and had some nice things to say about it.

David says “We often record dialogue and are more than surprised at what the Horizon delivers in this area. Sometimes you need to listen to hear the difference. But with Horizon you just hear it.”

Thanks David, we appreciate your feedback! If you are ever in need of recording services in Africa be sure to look up David Teren Productions.
