The Mic Mate is a USB 2.0 high-speed device that is backward compatible with USB 1.1. The analog section of the Mic Mate features a 20Hz-20kHz frequency response, and a three-position, switchable attenuation pad with settings for high (0dB), medium (-5dB), and low (-10dB), making it easy to configure the attached microphone to virtually any sound source. The digital section features a 16-bit Delta Sigma A/D converter with a sampling rate of 44.1kHz and 48kHz. For use with condenser microphones, the Mic Mate supplies 48V phantom power.
RIAA Reporter: This royalty-reporting tool automates the new per-performance RIAA royalty reporting requirements that went into effect in 2008. As a result of the new royalty fee arrangement, streaming radio stations will no longer be allowed to report royalty fees by aggregate tuning hour, which was based on the total hours of programming that the stations transmitted during a month to all listeners. Instead, stations will be required to report on a per-performance basis - or the total number of people listening each time a performance is played. Royalty fees are paid by streaming radio stations to Sound Exchange. RIAA Reporter removes the burden for stations by generating a monthly and quarterly report in spreadsheet format that does all the calculations, showing what was played, how often, and the total number of listeners. Clients need only to logon to the Liquid Compass Client Control Center and select from pre-populated dropdown information such as call letters and date range. The program will automatically calculate the stations fee and provide it in a form acceptable to Sound Exchange.
