In the Studio with Harman Professional

<< back to videos

Five world-renowned musicians and Harman Professional came together for recording session at Capitol Studios in Hollywood. The entire session and the resulting mixes were produced using only equipment from the Harman Professional brands, AKG, JBL Professional, Lexicon and Soundcraft. The session delivered three terrific recordings and a documentary video. From mic to mix-down, the Harman equipment used on this session is affordable and readily available. The total price for the system used is less than $5,000 and the excellent, transparent sonic quality of the mixes speaks for itself.* Harman Professional recording equipment is available from Harman's world-wide dealer network Information about the equipment can be found at: Session Notes: * A .wav file of each mix is available for download.
