New Equipment Rack
Ben, Smitty, Chris and Corey proudly display Control Room A's new equipment rack.
This rack was designed and built by the students enrolled in AUDI 4800, Audio Engineering.
The Audio Production Students in AUDI 4800 (Audio Engineering) were among the first in the U.S. to audition and
review the new Telefunken USA RM-5C ribbon microphone. Listening to the microphone on voice, guitar,
tenor sax and congas,the class compared the RM-5C with a classic ribbon microphone, the Coles 4038.
The object of the excercise was not to declare a "winner". Rather it was to learn something about
microphone design and use. The RM-5C was well-received by the class. The microphones were made
available byAssociate Professor, Barry Hufker,who was first in the country to purchase this new model.
