Couple of words of caution:

  • The room in which we have been using TLM 103 is not perfectly treated and some of our settings will reflect this.
  • Your recording setup may be completely different to ours.
  • Each voice is unique and the same settings will not have the exact same impact on everybody. You may need to tweak this further to your own benefit.

We offer one on one audio coaching for those looking to tweak their setup to perfection. We can help with adjusting both hardware and software to create ultimate sound for your recordings. Get in touch if this is something we can help with!
