The new beyerdynamic TG MM1w interchangeable measurement microphone capsule features omnidirectional polar pattern, with a linear frequency response in a compact and robust housing, made in Germany. In combination with the beyerdynamic TG 1000 handheld transmitter, it makes possible to perform measurements and calibrate sound systems in large auditoriums and live sound applications without the need for extended cabling.
According to beyerdynamic, the transmission characteristics for this all-in-one solution have been selected to achieve a linear frequency response and therefore natural sound reproduction. The omnidirectional polar pattern of the TG MM1w makes possible to measure the sound equally from all directions, while the compact all-metal housing has minimal influence on the acoustic environment and is also very robust.
Ulf Oeckel, a freelance FOH mixing & audio system engineer, has already tested the TG MM1w on Adele’s “Adele Live 2016” world tour. Since 1996, Oeckel has worked as a system engineer on many tours, including with Rammstein, Sade, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pink, Cher, Mark Knopfler, and others.
“When calibrating using a tablet in the venue, the handheld transmitter with its interchangeable measurement capsule is very convenient, light and practical, but also sturdy. The frequency response of the TG 1000 system in both the upper and lower ranges is very impressive, because it produces an almost linear system response. This persuaded me to use the TG 1000 system with the TG MM1w interchangeable microphone capsule to measure the acoustics. I use the system primarily for time alignment, monitoring the system response in different areas of the arena during the show. The TG MM1w has already mastered many difficult situations and is always consistent, which is really remarkable.”
Every TG MM1w is hand-made in Germany using high-class components and durable materials. The recommended retail price for the TG MM1w is 249 EUR. Each microphone is supplied with a printout of an individually measured 0° frequency response curve.
