The backbone of the work I’ve done over the years has been face-to-face sessions with clients but with the pandemic, it’s not possible to be in the same room. Of course there’s still music to be made so what to do?
A couple days ago songwriter Nes Cora called as he had a track to work on while he “sat over my shoulder” as he’d done many times before the current crisis. Rather than turn down the session, I was determined to find a combination of modern technology that would make real-time, online collaboration feel like an in-person session. With file transfer via Dropbox, monitoring of Pro Tools via Audiomovers and last but not least, instantaneous screen sharing and chat via web conferencing app Zoom while utilizing my new TONOR Q9 Microphone for my audio, a remote session seemed possible.
Success! Happy to report that all these parts added up to an awesome session yesterday and the TONOR mic was the star of my new setup. The microphone solved several problems I’d faced during previous sessions:
All in all the TONOR mic proved to be an essential asset for this remote session. Oh and did I mention the price? Currently under $70 on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/TONOR-Microphone-Condenser-Recording-Podcasting/dp/B07JMYG6LF. “Bang for the buck” for sure.
