Greetings from Boulder, CO.
Summer is still here. The nights are getting cooler, but the sun is still warm. Local sweet corn and tomatoes from the garden are on the plate, late season native flowers are still blooming, but we're slowly starting that glorious transition into autumn...
Speaking of which, this fall we will be attending the 127th Audio Engineering Society Convention in NYC. The dates are Friday, October 9th through Monday October 12th at the Javits Center. We'll be at booth # 448, so if you plan on attending, please stop by and say hello. We will be displaying our entire line of high fidelity hardware, including some very exciting new things that you simply won't want to miss.
m101 TEC Award Nomination – our single channel microphone preamplifier has some friends in high places who nominated it for the Technical Excellence & Creativity Awards for Outstanding Technical Achievement. While it's a tough award to win (going up against some pretty big companies), the nomination comes from a panel of industry peers and is a great honor by itself. We'd love it if you could take a few seconds to vote for the m101 (click here), and maybe we could put the award on our wall!

Important news about the m904 / m904b monitor controllers - The m904 and m904b stereo monitor controllers enjoy the reputation of being the premier products of their type in the pro audio industry. We believe very strongly that reference quality monitor control can create a major improvement in production quality, so we have decided to help close the gap between the people who really need this kind of improvement and their ability to make it a reality. What this means: price drop, big price drop. For complete details, please contact a Grace Design dealer near you.
Recently, jam band heroes PHISH played a sold-out 4 night run at the favored local venue Red Rocks Amphitheater. Meanwhile, we've been putting the finishing touches on the Spacebar family of microphone positioners, including the latest configurations: a Blumlein bar, a Decca Tree and a Surround Tree. While these systems aren't quite yet available, the concerts at Red Rocks proved to be a great maiden voyage for the Spacebar Surround Tree. Michael worked with the band and crew to set up in front of the main mix position. Using 5 Sennheiser MKH 8040 cardioid condensers atop the Spacebar Surround Tree, feeding an m802 preamplifier with our A/D converter module, some fairly rare and fantastic 5 channel recordings were captured. Its too early to know if these recordings will be available for release, but if it does happen, it will be through the band (Phish) and not us.
Thanks for reading, folks!!
