Scoring TV, film & video games with Jeff Rona and Blue Microphones

TV, film & video game composer Jeff Rona gives an inside look at how he uses Woodpecker, Dragonfly and Mouse to capture nuance and detail in his recordings. Hear why he chooses Blue microphones to capture instruments ranging from cello, woodwinds and frame drums.

Manufacturer's Description from Blue

Over five years in development, the Woodpecker is the only choice when searching for the smoky, warm, classic sound of a ribbon, but without sacrificing the bright presence of top-end. The Woodpecker is designed to deliver the wide frequency response needed in today’s modern recording environment. With its focused mid-range, ultra-smooth top end and outstanding bass response, the Woodpecker captures the essence of any recorded sound. It also excels at ambient recording, capturing room tone with the most intimate detail.
