Do Or Die Productions is always looking for ways to showcase pro audio gear made by passionate companies. Below you will find some of our partners who make exceptional gear and do exceptional things for the pro Audio industry.
Who They Are
Placid Audio was started in Dallas, Texas by bass player and engineer Mark Pirro (Polyphonic Spree/Tripping Daisy) in 2003 as a vehicle to facilitate small batch production of his first prototype microphone, The Copperphone. With emphasis on durable build quality, attractive design and distinctive sonic character, Placid Audio has been honoring these aspects as the company has grown over the last several years. Now in 2017, we at Placid Audio offer a variety of unique audio recording tools designed to expand the possibilities of the creative recording process.
What We Have of Theirs
We are the proud owners of a Placid Audio Carbonphone RU-80. The microphone has a carbon capsule that adds the perfect fuzz and lo-fi type distortion that can add color to just about any source. What drew us to the RU-80 was that it had a tone we'd been trying to achieve in post production on many of our recordings in the past. Now, no post production needed! Just add the RU-80 to your mic setup and blend it under the main tone. It has become a must have in many of our sessions.
