PMI Audio Group

is proud to announce the development and distribution of several flagship microphones and professional audio processing tools for AES 2002. Among the range of products are stunning new studio microphones from legendary designer Stephen Paul, a range of powerful—yet affordable—studio processors from Toft Audio Designs and new Studio Projects products that further the company’s reputation for award-winning performance at affordable prices. First and foremost from PMI is a recently announced partnership with famed microphone designer Stephen Paul. Long known for his modifications of current and vintage pro condenser microphones—as well as technical refinements in capsule and amplifier design—Stephen Paul has partnered with PMI to effectively enter a microphone market he helped create.

“With PMI Audio Group and Alan Hyatt, I have found the type of partner that I have sought for many years,” said Paul. “For the new line of flagship Stephen Paul condenser microphones, we have agreed that compromise is not an option. Perfection is a must. I believe that our new line of microphones will turn the industry upside-down, offering unsurpassed boutique mic quality at unheard-of prices.”

PMI is also proud to announce a partnership with Toft Audio Designs. While the company name may be new, the man behind Toft Audio Designs is none other than Trident Audio founder and renowned engineer Malcom Toft. The latest releases from Toft Audio Designs include the ATC-2 Dual MicPre/EQ/Compressor, AFC-2 Dual MicPre/4-Band Sweep EQ, TFC-2 Dual FET Stereo Compressor/Limiter and ATC-1 Mono MicPre/EQ/Compressor. All feature very high-quality components and impeccable construction throughout. From classic FET compression to precise VU metering, extremely musical EQ, and thick, rugged anodized aluminum front panels, these rackmount processors bring top-end performance to more accessible price points, perfect for a wide range of project studio and live sound applications.

Finally, Studio Projects is making project studio owners’ lives that much easier with a collection of affordable new microphones and the amazing VTB-1 Mic Preamp. Studio Projects mics include: the C1 and B1 cardioid large-diaphragm condensers; the C3 and B3 multipattern mics; the T3 multipattern tube mic; the new C4 matched-pair, small-diaphragm mics; and the new top-of-the-line LSD-2 large-diaphragm stereo mic. Each of these models is designed to compete with mics costing hundreds or thousands more—at a fraction of the cost owners would pay for a world-class microphone.

The perfect complement to Studio Projects microphones, the VTB-1 is the ultimate in low-cost mic preamp technology. Incorporating high-end touches, such as true Class-A/B switching and a totally discrete circuit design, the VTB-1 also boasts a “Tube Blend” feature. Based on the classic 12AX7 vacuum tube, this function allows users to blend in as little or as much overdrive as they like—perfect for recording guitar or bass. While offering the most flexibility of any mic pre in its class, the VTB-1 follows the Studio Projects tradition of high quality at irresistible prices.

There’s more to come: The SP-828 8-channel microphone preamp/mixer offers all the features you’d expect from Studio Projects. The SP-828 will debut at NAMM 2003.
