David Schwartz, a digital audio pioneer, will soon be unveiling a new design for a microphone that is aided by lasers to isolate “pure sound.”  According to his research, traditional microphones have a physical diaphragm that colors the sound recording and a laser accurate microphone can detect particle movement that usually hinders the quality of the captured sound.

Schwartz holds a number of sound-related patents and has aided the development of digital audio including a foundational patent to the MP3 format.  The new microphone promises to provide an “absolutely pristine transduction process” and audiophiles will certainly be following the presentation coming soon.  The concept will be demonstrated at the Schwartz Engineering and Design booth at the 127th Audio Engineering Society Show between October 9th and 12th in New York City.
