MXL Microphones CR30 Condenser Mic at AES 2012

When attending AES, you have an opportunity to demo and try out new software and products being released over the next few months. The Noise Room will be previewing some of this gear with numerous videos that we shot at AES. I was impressed by the number of microphones that were on display. In this video, Kevin Weiss from MXL Microphones talks about their new CR30 condenser mic that will be available towards the end of the year.
