LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – SEPTEMBER, 2016: TransAudio Group, U.S. distributor of the world’s best professional audio recording tools, is pleased to announce the addition of Latch Lake Music Products to the curated collection of manufacturers that it distributes. Although most engineers’ daydreams drift to the sexier tools of their trade, such as Drawmer and Tube-Tech processors or ATC reference monitors, TransAudio Group also focuses on the not so glamorous tools that can nevertheless dramatically reduce the stress of the studio recording experience. At some point in every engineer’s career (or, more likely, at some point in every engineer’s day), they’re forced to wrestle with a stripped or improperly balanced microphone stand. In response to that persistent frustration, Latch Lake Music Products builds the world’s best microphone stands: they adjust with grace, tighten with confidence, and balance with assurance.
Latch Lake produces three essential microphone stands, each with variations to address special situations. The Latch Lake micKing 3300 is the original Latch Lake mic stand, featuring Latch Lake’s patented base, a Spin Grip Mic Mount, lever-lock adjustment mechanisms, and moveable counterweights. At up to twenty feet tall, the 3300 is also the largest offering and most commonly used in orchestral recording applications. The micKing 2200 is essentially a smaller version of the 3300 that’s ideally suited to use with vocals and trap kit overheads. The micKing 1100 is even smaller and optimized for portability, while still using Latch Lake’s best-of-the-best components and architecture.
“At TransAudio Group, we pay attention to the entire recording process and curate a collection of manufacturers that build stand-out products,” said Brad Lunde, founder and president of TransAudio Group. “Like Hakan and Pauly pop filters and Sabra-Som microphone mounts, Latch Lake builds the kind of tools that help ensure that sessions run smoothly with a minimum of frustration and stress. If you’ve never used a Latch Lake microphone stand, I invite you to give it try. The improvement over workaday mic stands is so obvious that you’ll understand why we felt compelled to add Latch Lake to our collection of top-of-the-line manufacturers.”
