The UCM microphone cabinet features a wide variety of microphones, including many high-end models. This mic cabinet is shared by all the studio facilities in the Music Technology program, ensuring access to the perfect microphone for any job in which a student is engaged.
Most of the microphone cabinet is housed in the UCM Recording Studio, but some of the mics most often chosen for live recording stay in the Hart Recording Room.
Our philosophy is to train students on equipment used every day by professionals around the world. The microphones below have been chosen time and time again by engineers, critics, musicians, and educators as "the right mic for the job." Students in this program have access to many of the same microphones they will be using throughout their careers as audio engineers, enabling them to start learning the idiosyncracies of each mic now.
