Shure Get the Gig

Shure has announced its second annual Get the Gig Artist Relations internship competition.

Entries are now being accepted for the summer 2013 program, where one winner will get an “inside look” at the music industry and learn how to outfit some of today’s most talented artists and bands with the right equipment to produce the best sound possible — in the studio or on stage.

“If your world revolves around music and you’re not afraid to get your hands dirty…you could be our next summer intern,” said Cory Lorentz, Artist Relations Manager for Shure. “Our requirements are simple – be hungry to learn and be ready to expect the unexpected. While artist relations has its perks, it’s definitely not a ‘walk in the park.’ There’s no such thing as a typical day.”

Shure Artist Relations manages the relationships between musical artists and bands and the Company, providing product and technical support and assisting their front of house, monitor, and studio engineers as needed. Fans around the world enjoy music created by Shure artists such as Cage the Elephant, Foster the People, Jason Mraz, Matt & Kim, Mos Def, The Band Perry, The Black Keys, and Toby Keith, among others.

During the summer, the “Get the Gig” intern’s responsibilities may include providing support for social media initiatives, helping to manage Shure artist endorsers, assisting in the evaluation of potential endorsers, working with the Company to negotiate endorsement contracts, and coordinating Shure-sponsored events, including clinics and trade shows.

College juniors, seniors, and recent graduates from the class of 2012, who reside in the U.S., are eligible to enter and take part in up to three rounds of competition to demonstrate why they deserve to be the next Shure Artist Relations intern.

Shure launches KSM9HS—KSM9 vocal condenser microphone gets new polar patterns

Related: , , , Posted in news on Oct 29, 2012 - comment 0 comments
Shure KSM9HS (Cartridge)

Shure has introduced the KSM9HS, a new variant of its premium KSM9 Vocal Condenser microphone, with switchable hypercardioid and subcardioid polar patterns.

“The KSM9HS gives sound engineers more options to adapt to different stage conditions or the microphone techniques of a particular performer,” says Chad Wiggins, Category Director, Wired Products at Shure. “The hypercardioid pattern setting provides tremendous rejection of off-axis sound in high-SPL situations, which isolates the voice from monitor bleed even better than a supercardioid.”

In contrast, the KSM9HS’ subcardioid pattern is beneficial where bleed and volume are not an issue. “The subcardioid pattern has a wider pickup angle than a standard cardioid, which is useful on quieter stages,” says Wiggins. “In those situations, stage ambience can enhance the sonic palette.”

The KSM9HS is available in wired and wireless versions. The original KSM9, which debuted in 2005, will continue to be available with switchable cardioid and supercardioid polar patterns. Both the KSM9 and KSM9HS feature a groundbreaking dual-diaphragm design that delivers the transparency of a studio microphone, and minimizes proximity effect for more consistent sound quality at different working distances.

According to Jay Rigby, Front of House engineer for Cage the Elephant, “Due to the high overall stage volume, our traditional vocal microphone [a KSM9] was picking up too much stage bleed, thus overwhelming the IEM mixes. As soon as we swapped out the KSM9 for the KSM9HS, everyone on stage noticed the difference immediately. With the improved tight pickup pattern we were able to get the vocal levels needed without all of the stage bleed coming down the mic. Problem solved.”

Colin Cargile, Front of House engineer for Drive-By Truckers, says, “I really liked the way the KSM9 sounded and wanted to use it on our two main vocalists, Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley. But our stage was just too loud. Shure gave me a couple of KSM9HS to try out and everyone immediately loved the warmth and body as well as the all-around consistency and durability of the mics. It is also a blessing to be able to switch the capsule pattern with ease.”

The KSM9HS dual-diaphragm vocal condenser microphone is priced MSRP $874 USD.

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Oct 18, 2012 - comment 0 comments

Shure has announced new rechargeable accessories: the SBC210 Portable Charger and SBC-DC Bodypack Power Insert.

Coupling the rock-solid reliability Shure products are known for with improved efficiency, the new solutions offer customers intelligent power management for extended usage times and battery life.

Shure SBC210

The SBC210 has a compact, rugged design and is available in a convenient desktop unit. Built with a rapid charging function, the portable accessory can charge two SB900 batteries to 50 percent capacity within one hour.

A full charge for both batteries can be achieved within three hours. SB900 batteries are compatible with the Shure P9RA and P10R Wireless Bodypack Receivers, the ULX-D™ Digital Wireless Handheld Transmitters, and the UR5 Portable Diversity Receiver.

Shure SBC-DC

Compatible with SB900-powered devices, the SBC-DC Bodypack Power Insert connects to a PS41 power supply for consistent and continuous operation without batteries.

The SBC-DC can be used with P9RA and P10R Wireless Bodypack Receivers, the ULXD1 Wireless Bodypack Transmitter, and the UR5 Portable Diversity Receiver.

In designing the SBC210 and SBC-DC, Shure kept the everyday challenges audio professionals face top-of-mind, enabling the accessories to build on the benefits of the Company’s existing rechargeable products. All Shure rechargeable products have precision metering, enabling users to track remaining battery life on the transmitter and receiver displays in hours and minutes—accurate within 15 minutes—for increased reliability and more definitive monitoring. Additionally, Shure’s rechargeables combine Lithium-ion chemistry with Shure battery circuitry, resulting in zero memory effect. Batteries can be recharged at any time, and a complete discharge is never necessary.

Shure adds ULXD4D & ULXD4Q multi-channel receivers to ULX-D Series

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Jun 14, 2012 - comment 0 comments

Shure has announced it is extending its ULX-D™ Digital Wireless Microphone System with new multi-channel receivers, a High Density mode that enables 47 systems to operate in just six MHz of spectrum, and integrated Dante™ digital audio networking.

Shure ULXD4D/ULXD4Q
New Dual and Quad channel digital receivers coming late Summer 2012.

The new ULXD4D dual channel digital receiver and ULXD4Q quad channel digital receiver pack two or four channels of wireless into one rack space, with individual gain controls, LED meters, and XLR outputs for each channel. Like the single-channel, half-rack ULXD4 digital receiver, the new dual and quad receivers feature fully digital audio processing and RF transmission as well as AES 256-bit encryption.

“ULX-D has already set a new bar for audio quality, spectral efficiency, and features with its intelligent rechargeable batteries and AES256 encryption,” said Erik Vaveris, Category Director for Wireless products at Shure. “The addition of full-rack dual and space-saving quad-channel receivers provides customers with professional form factors and an amazing list of new features and enhancements.”

The dual and quad receivers add two new features that make using a large number of systems not only possible, but simple. Selecting High Density mode enables up to 47 ULX-D systems to operate in just six MHz of spectrum (equal to one U.S. television channel), with a working range up to 30 meters. High Density mode optimizes the system’s output power and digital RF filtering to reduce its spectral footprint from 350 kHz to 125 kHz, with no loss of sound quality. This lets ULX-D systems be tuned to frequencies that are much closer together without interfering with each other. Even in Standard mode, up to 17 ULX-D systems can operate in six MHz.

“High Density mode provides a unique option for getting an unprecedented number of microphones on the air,” added Vaveris. “As spectrum challenges continue to increase, High Density mode is a key tool for systems integrators who need to maximize the amount of microphones that can reliably operate in less spectrum.”

The ULXD4D and ULXD4Q receivers are also equipped with integrated Dante digital audio networking, which enables multiple channels of audio to be distributed to a variety of devices over a single Ethernet cable, including Yamaha’s new CL Series consoles. Dante networking provides reliable, low latency audio transport, and can coexist safely on the same network as IT and control data. Shure has executed a licensing agreement with Sydney, Australia-based Audinate for the Dante digital audio networking technology.

Launching the dual and quad receivers at InfoComm makes perfect sense because their feature set is so well suited to the needs of systems integrators. Starting with ULX-D’s remarkable audio and RF performance, adding Dante Digital audio networking provides a great way to simplify set up while also increasing flexibility in installed sound systems. Include features like bodypack frequency diversity, a reliable and intelligent rechargeable battery system, and digital encryption, and you have a wireless microphone system that can meet the needs of just about any sound reinforcement application.

The new ULXD4D and ULXD4Q receivers will be available in late summer 2012 through authorized Shure resellers in numerous configurations with a wide range of Shure microphone options.
