Neumann has launched a brand new card game app for the iPhone, iPod and iPad based on the company’s current and classic microphones.|
In the style of the Top Trumps card game, the winner is determined by who knows which microphones can handle the highest sound pressure levels, have the lowest self-noise, have the greatest number of directional characteristics, or have been available on the market the longest.
Free of charge from the Apple App Store the game has a single-player mode with two difficulty levels, where players match their skill against the computer, and a multi-player mode using Bluetooth. In each case, a game of ten or 20 rounds can be played, or the game can finish when one player has no more cards. Neumann president Wolfgang Fraissinet commented: ”In an entertaining way, aspiring and experienced audio engineers will learn many things about the strengths of individual mics and can test their knowledge.”
In addition to its role as a game, the app can function as a miniature product catalogue and also contains information about areas of application for both analogue and digital mics.
