Michael has been interfacing with MIT Cables products for many years. Speaking of one of his recent projects during which he utilized seven pairs of Oracle MA-X Rev.2 Interconnects, Michael wrote:

Dear MIT Cables,

I had the chance to use the new Oracle MA-X Rev. 2 Interconnects in-session at my latest sessions with jazz pianist Hiromi, bassist Anthony Jackson, and drummer Simon Phillips. The session took place at Water Music Recorders in Hoboken, NJ. The release is titled, "Voice" and will be on Telarc with a June 2011 US release. I believe the CD will be released February 2011 in Japan.

I employed the Oracle Interconnects at every critical signal junction, but particularly between microphones and preamplifiers. I also employed the Oracle Interconnects in the subsequent mix session for the same project, this time at the new Clonick Hall Studio of Oberlin Conservatory of Music.

The Oracle interconnects made a significant contribution to the outstanding audio results we achieved on these sessions - once again!!!

It's easy to say good things about the MIT Interconnects - I now consider them to be an important set of tools in achieving the sound I want to get in my recordings. Every component utilized in the recording chain is critical. The Oracle Interconnects are then all the more important in that they provide the best possible interface between those components. Their use allows me to optimize the power AND audio transfer in a way that no ordinary interconnects ever could.

With best regards,
Michael Bishop
Recording Engineer & Producer
