HEAR THE DIFFERENCE WITH APOGEE HYPE MIC COMPRESSION
If you are struggling to make your recording, podcast or livestream stand out from the masses with a present and powerful sound, you may have heard that "compression" helps you achieve your goals. Apogee HypeMiC's built-in compression does just that.
Apogee has tried every possible formulation to describe compression - it's "reducing the dynamic range", it's "squeezing the audio", it's "the polish you hear on the radio" - but in the end, the best way to understand compression is to hear it in action.
Apogee asked LA-based singer-songwriter Joel Taylor to record an entire track using only HypeMics, so Apogee recorded each instrument and vocal with a pair of HypeMiCs carefully positioned to accurately capture his performance. With one crucial little difference, one mic had compression on, one didn't - science, my friends!
The engineers noticed something interesting about the lead vocal tracks - even if the peak levels of both tracks were precisely matched (in other words, the loudest note on each track was set to exactly the same level on the meters of the audio tracks) - the compressed vocals had a punchy, direct character that made mixing much easier.
Listen to the final mix - everything was recorded with a single HypeMiC, including piano, bass, guitars, vocals and even the drums - a single microphone! We chose the compressed microphone for bass, drums, one guitar and vocals, while we chose the uncompressed microphone for the piano and the other guitar.
