Internal backoffice tool for SkillPages

Share

One of my main responsibilities at SkillPages is the development and maintenance of the Backoffice tool. This is an internal website through which many important activities can be performed, such as monitoring spam, vetting opportunities, examining key statistic, and others.

Fathead II

Share

As part of putting together a home studio I'm slowly amassing a small collection of microphones. Recently the family has grown one larger as I procured a Cascade Fathead II. This is the first ribbon mic I've owned, and it's now officially the most fragile I have. Traditionally ribbon microphones have been very fragile, owing to the fact that it is based around a narrow aluminium strip, used to capture the sound. Modern models are more robust, but a direct blast of wind (such as that coming out of a kick drum, a plosive sound made by a singer) can destroy the mic, so pop shields are a must.

Got a chance to check it out this weekend on some vocals, along with an acoustic guitar. I was surprised at how different the sound was compared to the Oktava-MK012 condenser I've been using, very warm sounding, and definitely compliments the vocals well - I look forward to trying it on a guitar cabinet.
