In the following “Quick Listen” video, Greg Johnson demonstrates the Korg Minilogue Polyphonic Synthesizer and shows how this powerful new synthesizer can be a useful addition to any musician’s inventory. The video explores some of the 100 Factory/User presets and how to utilize the onboard true-analog oscillators, filter, amplifier, envelope generators, and LFO. Johnson shows us each of its eight modes including 4-Voice, Duo, Unison, Mono, Single Note Chords, Delay, Arpeggiator, and Side-Chain.  Additionally, the video touches upon the 16-note polyphonic sequencer, which can be implemented in step mode or real time.

In the following video, Rob Rives, from B&H, discusses the Zoom F8 Professional Multi-Track Field Recorder for Filmmaking and Sound Design.  Using both an Audio-Technica AT899 Condenser Lavalier Microphone, as well as a Schoeps CMC6 MK41 microphone mounted on an Auray Boompole with a Schoeps shockmount, Rives makes a direct comparison of sound quality at 24-bit/192 kHz resolution between the Zoom F8 Field Recorder and the more expensive Sound Devices 688 Professional Field Recorder.    The video explores the F8’s features including timecode support, three power options, dual SD card slots, redundant recording, its use as a multi-channel audio interface for Mac and PC, and compatibility with the company’s microphone capsules. It also includes wireless control with a mobile device using a dedicated app. These features make the F8 a powerful tool for everything from multi-tracking band rehearsals, recording sound for picture, and Foley work, among others—all in a portable and durable form factor.        We hope you enjoy the video, and invite you to view the wide selection of other instructional and informative videos at BandH.com

In the following video, Rob Rives, from B&H, discusses the Audio-Technica AT8024 camera-mount microphone. With the microphone mounted on a Canon 5D mk III, the video explores the microphone’s two settings: one for a mono cardioid pickup pattern and one for an internally matrixed mid-side stereo pattern.  The video compares the sound quality of the microphone to the camera’s built-in microphone, demonstrates the integrated shock mount that attaches to the camera’s shoe mount, as well as noting the 100-hour battery life from a single AA battery. The microphone includes a-10 dB and a-20 dB pad for recording sounds up to 148 dB, and an optional 80 Hz high-pass filter to help reduce hum and wind noise.

While we generally recommend getting closer to the subject and using a dual-system solution to avoid recording the camera's noisy preamps, in many one-shooter, run-and-gun situations, that's not always possible. This video is designed to give you an idea of what some of these microphones sound like in such situations. We begin by listening to the poor audio recorded from the built-in mic on a DSLR, followed by examples of how six camera-mountable microphones sound, individually. The featured microphones include: Polsen SCL-1075, RØDE VideoMic Go, sE Electronics ProMic Laser, Sennheiser MKE 400, Shure VP83, and the Senal SCS-98.
