M-Audio (Arcadia, Calif.) announced the Record Now Series of free guidebooks, which are designed to help musicians make informed choices on music technology, as well as provide tips and techniques on how to get the most out of today's gear.

The first title, Choosing and Using Microphones, focuses on mic technology and techniques. Technology topics includes types of microphones (with an emphasis on condenser mics), design attributes of capsules and electronics, polar pattern characteristics, specs, manufacturing standards, etc.; techniques include basic miking principles, close vs. distance miking, stereo-miking arrangements, etc.

Commenting on why they chose to highlight microphones for the first installment of the new series, Adam Castillo, marketing director at M-Audio, said, "Microphones were a logical choice for a first title because the new series of Groove Tubes microphones M-Audio distributes puts world-class mics within the reach of just about any serious recordist. Our affordable matched pairs also introduce stereo recording to a whole new strata of musicians and engineers."

Choosing and Using Microphones is free, and is available from any M-Audio dealer or download at www.mic-guide.com.
