The Rise of Skywalker
Imagine that you are about to record the soundtrack for a major Hollywood blockbuster. You have the big studio booked, and a full orchestra coming in on full union rates. And one of the most renowned living composers is coming to conduct.
What microphones are you going to use for this? You have the budget for the very best, and need a great sound, low noise and reliability.
For the latest Star Wars movie, the answer was Extinct Audio BM9 ribbon microphones. This video clip is taken from the behind the scenes special on ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ blu-ray. Conducted by John Williams and engineered and mixes by Shawn Murphy. We counted four BM9s above various orchestral sections.
