From Unidyne to Dualdyne – Reinventing the Dynamic Microphone
In 1939, Shure introduced the original Unidyne Model 55, the world’s first single-element, unidirectional dynamic microphone. Offering greater rejection of unwanted sounds and improved gain-before-feedback, sound reinforcement and reproduction experienced a huge leap forward in quality. Further refined into the Unidyne III element, the SM58® became the blueprint for all unidirectional dynamic microphones to follow.
Now, in 2016, Shure has introduced the first significant reinvention of the dynamic microphone in more than 50 years, with the KSM8 Dualdyne Vocal Microphone.
Join us on February 15 to learn more, as Shure Product Manager, John Born, will trace the history of the unidirectional dynamic microphone and give us a glimpse into this exciting new technology.
Shure has released an excellent video series on their Youtube page all about personal monitor systems. The four-part series explains why you would use in-ears, which system is right for you, and how to set up a new PSM system. Check out the first video below and click here to view the playlist on YouTube.

In this one-hour Webinar, Michael Pettersen, Shure Corporate Historian and White House Liaison, will illustrate and describe the technical reasons that support the use of the SM57 for this critical sound reinforcement application. Behind-the-scenes stories will also explain the evolution of the Presidential audio system over the decades. The presentation will be about 40 minutes, allowing time for questions.

How to Choose and Use Personal Monitor Systems
Shure has added the PSM®300 Stereo Personal Monitor System to its personal monitoring lineup. PSM 300 has two offerings; one easy-to-use system designed for entry-level users and a professional system with advanced features and performance.
While the majority of musicians and monitor engineers are clear on the advantages of personal monitors, the proper ways to configure a personal monitor system are not as well known. Since no two situations are identical, it’s up to the user to decide how to use the system, from selecting the right system, to purchasing the right number of components, to making connections.
In this one-hour Webinar, Gino Sigismondi, Shure Systems Support Manager and author of Selection and Operation of Personal Monitor Systems, will arm you with everything you need to know about using personal monitors, including:
An overview of the new PSM 300 systems
Critical aspects of configuring a personal monitor system
Tips on successfully transitioning from stage monitors to in-ears
Explore supplemental equipment that can enhance the experience
