In a delightful musical mélange, OHMA and Ohma World have joined forces with Hailey Niswanger on saxophone & keys and Mia Garcia on rubber bridge baritone guitar performing their original song "Between All Things".
OHMA showcased their unique style through their custom Ohma microphones (hehe), choosing the warm tones of Apricot and Eyelid Orange. To set their mics apart, Mia selected an Eyelid Orange body with Apricot screens, while Hailey chose an Apricot body and Eyelid Orange screens. (Apricot isn't currently available in the customizer, but we're open to adding it!)
Handpicked with precision, each screen was chosen with the instrument in mind. The tune was captured with Motif Condensers on vocals and a palette of ribbon mics for each instrument. The Windows Ribbon adeptly captured the saxophone's wide sonic range, while gently tempering the higher frequencies. The Wurlitzer's extensive sonic spectrum was embraced by the Holes Ribbon. Positioned near the guitar's neck, the Stripes Ribbon intricately picked up the charming mid-range tones, and the Scales Ribbon, used on the guitar amp (off-screen), skillfully moderated the baritone's deep resonances.
