True condenser mic
Superlux PRO238MKII: Featuring a modular design with a removable capsule, high SPL characteristics, a hidden low-cut switch, and a warm, detailed sound, the new Superlux PRO238MKII utilizes a 1" gold-plated thin film diaphragm in a protected capsule that delivers a wide frequency range with emphasis in the mid-high band. Featuring a cardioid polar pattern, the mic has a frequency response that extends from 20Hz-20 kHz. To accommodate a wide range of sound sources, the PRO238MKII has a switchable 100Hz/12dB per octave low cut filter that can be used to eliminate low frequency rumble caused by wind that may occur during outdoor performances. This switch is hidden in the chamber that houses the microphone's capsule to protect it from being accidentally changed during performances. The PRO238MKII's maximum level is 136dB SPL and the noise floor is only 16dB SPL A-weighted.

FW27: The FW27 is a 27' mic stand that is an ideal tool that collapses to just 5' for outstanding range and easy portability. It weighs only 9.5 pounds, making it the lightest tall stand in the market. Articulated legs and a bubble level allow placement of the stand on uneven surfaces. The microphone mount is constructed of heavy-duty 5/8-27 threaded steel, ensuring long-term reliability.
Mscore Series: The Mscore Series will be a new way for radio programmers of all formats to understand how radio listeners use radio. The first in the series, Mscore Switching, calculates an index of switching when radio panelists react to songs on the radio. The Mscore is derived from looking at what happened during many spins of the song on a specific station and then displayed on the Media Monitors Web service. Mscore can also be downloaded into RCS' GSelector so that music scheduling is enhanced even further.
