The video not only features interviews with composer/conducter Alan Chan and recording engineer & studio owner Greg Curtis, it also gives you the chance to hear isolated tracks from the session in a live demonstration.

Man of Steel just opened up this past weekend with a record breaking $125 million in ticket sales, and we are honored that AEA mics and preamps were part of making superstar composer Hans Zimmer's vision become real. Famed scoring engineer Alan Meyerson chose his favorite R44C "Bessie" ribbon mic powered by an AEA TRP preamp as his main spot mic to capture the beautiful Artot-Alard Stradivarius violin played by Ann Marie Calhoun at the Warner Bros stage. The intimate violin performance serves to create a wonderful contrasting element to the explosion of Superman's home planet Krypton, in Zimmer's exceptional score.

How was the N22 ribbon mic conceived? Why did we go back to the way RCA would design microphones? And why is the N22 so well suited for singer-songwriters and musicians? Wes Dooley himself and our team of beta-testers have the answers for you! http://ow.ly/qbLjO

The list of record-breaking motion pictures with AEA involvement just keeps growing: 'Despicable Me 2' blew away all expectations last weekend with a massive $142.1 million in US box office sales. Award-winning recording and mixing engineer, Alan Meyerson (Transformers, Batman: The Dark Knight, Shrek, and many more) chose AEA R44C and KU4 microphones, and AEA TRP preamps to capture the lively brass section recorded at the Fox Studios scoring stage. http://ow.ly/mUnSs
