One Direction on tour with Milab Microphones

Helsingborg, Sweden – One Direction has arguably been the most successful band in the world this decade. They are the first act to have all their first three albums debut at number one on the Billboard Hot 200 list and their latest album Midnight Memories was the best selling album of 2013 according to IFPI.

For the 2014 Where We Are Tour, FOH engineer Mark Littlewood and Monitor engineer Ant Carr decided to add four Milab DC-96B’s to the lineup.

Ant: “I’d never used Milab before we started rehearsals. Mark had put them on the input list for overheads and I was willing to give them a try. I like to build drum mixes in in-ears starting with the overheads, it’s important to me to get a balanced mix of cymbals and drums without too much ambience outside of the kit and then mix in the direct mics. The DC-96B has such a smooth response and accurate pick up pattern, it gives me exactly the sound I need.”

Josh Devine (drummer for One Direction): “These overhead mics are insane, I can pick everything out. The devil is in the detail!”

DC-96B’s are also used for the guitar amps.

Ant: “While going through the input list with Mark I said I really wanted a dynamic and condenser combination on the main guitar amp. We tried several combinations but always came back to a pairing that used the DC-96B, Mark only uses this mic in the PA mix. We use them on both Dan Richard’s amp and 1D member Niall Horan’s amp.”

The microphones were delivered by Milab’s UK distributor Autograph Sales – www.autographsales.co.uk.

One Direction is currently in the USA for the third and last leg of the tour which will end with a final show in Miami on October 5th.

Rycote to design custom shock mounts for Milab Microphones

Milab SRND 360 with the new Rycote mount

Helsingborg, Sweden/Stroud, UK – Milab Microphones is proud to announce a collaboration with Rycote, the British manufacturer of industry-standard microphone windshields and suspensions. The first fruit of this closer working relationship is a custom version of the Rycote InVision USM (Universal Studio Mount) suspension for the Milab SRND 360 surround microphone, and further Milab-specific Rycote products are currently at the design stage.

To fit the large 60mm barrel of the Milab SRND 360, Rycote designed a modified version of the USM — the standard version accommodates any large-diaphragm microphone from 18 to 55mm in diameter.

At the heart of the USM, the microphone mounting ring is acoustically decoupled from the rest of the suspension by the use of Rycote’s patented vibration-resistant Lyre clips. Made from a non-elasticated thermoplastic which can be bent more
