Jean-François Moreau

Sound engineer

  • The VL21-C is the mic I've been waiting for.

    A faithful capture of the color of the instrument. The violinists who at the end of the balance listened to their sound amplified by these microphones were all won over.

    Bravo Ludovic Lanen and Prodipe!

  • The CL21 shouldn't need to be talked about, just listen to it.

    No more nasal cellos. This microphone respects the range in which it plays and respects the woody timbre of this magnificent instrument.
