Sound Recording Revolution Around the Corner
Guest Post by Carti Venandi

Zylia, a young company from Poznan, Poland established in 2012, has been dedicated to one thing since starting up: developing “revolutionary tools and technologies for recording and post-processing of music, 3Daudio, and VR (Virtual Reality).

It appears they're accomplishing this mission with the emergence of their newest product, the Zylia ZM-1 microphone (or “microphones” if you’d rather considering it has a total of 19 omnidirectional condenser capsules in this one piece of equipment).

Not only that, they offer high quality 48 kHz/24 bit recording and their proprietary Zylia DAW software is included. Now, you may be wondering what sets this product apart. What's so revolutionary here? Why in the hell do we need 19 microphones in one?!

No need to hold you’re breath because I'm about to break it down to brass tacks.

Track Separation Software, BOOM. Now despite sounding not so exciting, this is some groundbreaking stuff. The ZM-1 lets you record multiple instruments simultaneously, then separating each individual instrument from the full mix, keeping the acoustics and quality intact for each track. Some could say it's the biggest revolution in music recording since multi-track recording technology came to light in the 1950s.

The ZM-1 and its accessories are still in the production process but they're promoting and funding through Indiegogo - offering you a chance to contribute or, even better:  pre-order the ZM-1 at an attractive price. Check it out.

EM International - Lord Apex

Lord Apex's Interplanetary Funk LP is one of the best sounds springing forth from London, UK, that we've heard yet. 

We of MB believe place is expressed most authentically by the art and music emerging from the microcosm. The life that can be observed, heard, and felt through these mediums is what constitutes the spirit of a place, or genius loci

We also believe in supporting great sounds and socially conscious artists from around the global. More than that, though, we're interested in cultivating the sounds, ideas, and creations emerging from our home in Knoxville, TN. 

Drop us a line and let's jam.

R.S.I. - Fujiya & Miyagi

What to say about this? This group has a cool and unique sound of the ear-drum tickling variety. 

They can groove and rock, at the same time. And we guarantee this will make you feel all sorts of good ways. Stay for the whole ride.

Check it out. And support the good sounds springing forth from Brighton, UK

Play that Funky Music (Live)

On Thursday we had the privilege of playing at the 9th Annual Taste of Anderson County, a benefit for the United Way, hosted in Jackson Square in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. 

We jammed out a 12-track set list and had a blast doing so, hopefully to the pleasure of our audience - we loved hanging with you btw. 

Fortunately, Matt's dad had the great prescience to film a few slices of the action on his phone and we wish to share our jam through the interwebs for those who could not join this time around.
