Ola Onabule discusses and demos the Neumann KMS stage microphones

Ola Onabule has always had a love of vocal microphones. "I have always been fascinated by sound" he says. Onabule goes on "As much by the way it is produced, as by the way it is perceived. I am intrigued by it's mystical and scientific qualities. The fact that it can stir the full gamut of emotional responses in the listener and that it achieves this through the agitation of a delicate membrane in the ear and sound waves in the air. Microphones are to my mind, the electro-mechanical facsimile of this phenomena and to a singer, the single most important piece of technology they will ever interact with. So not surprisingly, as both a singer/songwriter and producer who runs a project studio and tours extensively, I really do love me a good mic …or two."

Onabule was introduced to Neumann's range of microphones at the start of his career more than two decades ago and he still gets knocked off his feet by the effortless reproduction of nuance and harmonics that he'd previously only ever heard in his head and never out of a pair of studio monitors.
