Ok, so this one isn’t designed for ‘creating’ music, but if you spend any amount of time with mics in a studio or on stage, this could be a handy free app to have on hand.
Did you ever wish you could carry one of the world’s greatest live sound engineers in your pocket or backpack? While MicVault Live doesn’t make that possible, it comes pretty close. Whether you are a seasoned pro or a hobbyist, every audio engineer and musician find themselves needing advice on deciding what microphone to use on a particular sound source from time to time. If you do not have the phone numbers of the world’s top engineers on speed dial, MicVault Live will instantly save your day by offering advice from three seasoned pros, Jason Spence, Chris “Sully” Sullivan & Chris Taylor. MicVault Live includes microphone recommendations for everything from drums and percussion, to strings, guitars and vocals. And, if the recommended mic is beyond your price range, the engineers offer a low-budget alternative (if they feel there is one).
These three engineer’s credits run the gamut of commercial music and include artist’s such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Janet Jackson, Keith Urban, Barbara Streisand, Joe Cocker, Steven Curtis Chapman, Megadeth, Jewel, Conway Twitty, and Amy Grant. Their TV mix credits include Grammy Awards, Super Bowl, CMA Awards, CMT Awards, MTV Awards Europe, and the Garth Brooks Central Park concert.
MicVault Live makes the experience these engineers gained while working with these artists and events available to you in a simple, quick and easy-to-use interface.
The easy-to-use app includes photos of all of the recommended microphones, as well as links to the microphone manufacturer’s websites.
