The Periscope is designed to be as simple and quick to use as possible. The circuitry and capsule have been fine tuned to ensure that the sound you get out of The Periscope is great right off the bat – without the need to mess around with eq’s and compressors. Just plug in and record.
Using The Periscope
It would take a large amount of time (and money) to replicate the sound of The Periscope using a more traditional ‘mic + preamp + compressor’ recording chain. The Periscope can be setup easily, giving you a great sound straight away.
Immediacy. You’ve already got a great sound so you don’t need to “fix it in the mix”.
Duplicating tracks, routing and re-routing audio paths, choosing a plug-in, dialling in settings, choosing another plug-in, dialling in settings, cleaning artefacts generated by parallel compression, checking for phase issues and balancing levels can take up so much time.
The Periscope speeds up your recording and mix sessions, allowing you to focus on the music.
Hell yeah! The capsule and circuit can handle a painful amount of sound pressure – but be aware that due to circuit design the distortion factor will be quite noticeable.
But… the capsule is omni-directional and the built-in compressor is squeezing the hell out of it so you should be prepared for some serious feedback, especially in small venues where the mic is close to the PA system.
In big venues, like arenas and stadiums, where the PA system is most likely hanging far away from The Periscope, you’ll have a much better chance to achieve enough gain before feedback.
