One of the really cool parts of my gig is that I occasionally get to help produce all kinds of creative content, including promotional gear videos. In some cases, the companies with which I work even let me have creative control...and I try to do the VO whenever possible, of course. love

Here's one I just finished where I developed the concept, wrote the script, performed and tracked the VO, and directed the storyboard and production of the video itself.



Way too much fun. grin boing

I haven't gotten in the habit of using it on instruments (yet), but there's a simpler version of this called the Cloudlifter Z that I use on dynamic mics all the time, including on the EV RE20 mic I used for the VO. Way interesting hearing how much of an effect and variance on the tone you can get by mismatching the impedance.

The real fun of this project was trying to find a way to talk about a geeky thing like variable impedance in such a way as to try to intrigue the creative side of the brain that wants to find new ways to get killer tone...and do it as quickly as possible, of course - I'd been hoping to keep it under two minutes, but couldn't do it. eek
