Video 1: Brauner - The Art of Microphones:
The Brauner VMA is a hand-built variable-pattern general-purpose valve microphone that combines the sonic characteristics of both the VM1 and VMX microphones.
Uniting two sound designs, the Brauner VMA takes the clean, uncoloured sound of the award-winning VM1 model and allows you to switch it with the characterful and warm qualities of the VMX version, for maximum adaptability - and all in one microphone. Capable of immense subtlety using this design, the Brauner VMA can be both sweet and pristine, able to reproduce high frequency signals with utmost fidelity due to its Class A amp stage and yet offer smooth response with a soft, lower-end proximity effect for more intimate and personal vocal delivery, or to bring sounds closer to the speaker plane.
Careful attention to the signal paths, removal of all extraneous switches from the audio line, plus the infinitely variable pickup pattern ensure that the Brauner VMA gives you an unrivalled performance over the entire range of sound. Dirk Brauner put some serious thinking into creating the best microphone available when he designed the first VM1 model - he had a head start being from Germany, the home of the greatest microphones, but that just made him work harder and think more.
Two sounds requires two different microphones, right? Not for Dirk Brauner - the Brauner VMA shows that innovative thinking comes from looking at a situation afresh in a new light and then, chance favours the prepared mind, as someone once said.
