There is a very interesting article about a Dan Wallin new record for Wachowski Brothers’ “Speed Racer.
Dan Wallin says: “For me, the TLM 170 is the basic tool that any engineer needs to properly record an orchestra. You can record anything on a TLM 170 and it sounds fantastic, and the headroom is phenomenal. Transients sail through perfectly.”
“Like the other mics in the TLM Series, the 49s have no transformer and thus no phase shift,” he said. “As a result, they have a wide open sound that is absolutely truthful and accurate."
