  1. Using Remic Microphones For Open Air Concerts With Taketo Gohara

    Using Remic Microphones For Open Air Concerts With Taketo Gohara
    Miking instruments in open-air settings like amphitheaters can be complicated, as the weather can always be unpredictable and factors like the wind can ruin your sound.

This past summer, Front of House Engineer Taketo Gohara went on with legendary Italian singer-songwriter Vinicio Capossela, and was tasked with running sound for two orchestras. When miking the Filarmonica Arturo Toscanini and the Orchestra Teatro Massimo in open-air settings, Gohara opted to use the REMIC LB (Live) microphones featuring built-in windscreens.
