Sennheiser Group brings audio galore to The 2024 NAMM Show

Visitors will be welcomed to experience the latest solutions from Sennheiser, Neumann, Dear Reality and Merging Technologies in two dynamic demo rooms.

The anticipation is building for this year’s NAMM Show as the Sennheiser Group prepares to showcase its latest audio innovations in two demo spaces. The Sennheiser Group Live Room (located in demo room # 18806) and the Immersive Demo Room (# 18808) promise an unparalleled experience for show visitors, featuring the latest audio innovations from Sennheiser, Neumann, Dear Reality and Merging Technologies, as well as offering seminars and panel discussions with some of the industry’s leading experts.

The Sennheiser Group Live Room (# 18806) will offer visitors a chance to explore the rich histories of Sennheiser and Neumann by showcasing both companies’ timelines. A focal point within the space will be the unveiling of Sennheiser’s latest addition to its professional studio portfolio, with NAMM attendees having the unique opportunity to engage with the product for the very first time.

Besides its wireless offer for musicians (pictured are transmitters and receivers of the EW-DX series), Sennheiser will unveil a new studio product. Additionally, a dedicated wireless station will feature the Evolution Wireless Digital family of wireless microphones, Digital 6000 wireless mics as well as XS Wireless IEM and evolution wireless G4 IEM systems.

An insulated “Whisper Room” will accommodate selected Neumann microphones for demo. Moreover, Neumann will announce three new products. The MT 48 audio interface will receive an eagerly anticipated feature update, which, among other things, will allow working in immersive audio formats. Another focus is live sound: Neumann will show an omni capsule for the Miniature Clip Microphone (MCM) system as well as goosenecks of various lengths. Also on display will be much-requested additions to Neumann’s renowned family of vocalist capsule heads for wireless systems.

Two workstations will offer a hands-on experience of accessible immersive workflows. Here, spatial audio expert Dear Reality will introduce the successor of its popular dearVR PRO immersive spatializer plugin, dearVR PRO 2. This plugin adds another layer of spatial experience to any professional audio production and puts the listener at the center of the sound.

Furthermore, visitors can experience solutions to control the DAW in VR with Dear Reality’s dearVR SPATIAL CONNECT as well as monitor spatial audio mixes through headphones with the dearVR MONITOR mix room plugin.

The second immersive workstation will showcase Merging Technologies audio interfaces. A highlight will be the company’s Venue Mission software for the Anubis audio interface, which is set to revolutionize workflows for live musicians and sound engineers, providing them with unprecedented control over the entire audio ecosystem via an intuitive user interface that has a full 16-channel mixer at its heart.

In addition to product demonstrations, the Sennheiser Group Live Room features a stage with daily seminars led by industry luminaries. Monitor engineer Salim Akram, Grammy & Emmy awarded broadcast audio producer-mixer Michael Abbott, mixing engineer Brandon Blackwell, Sennheiser’s Jimmy Landry as well as music producers Mark Needham and Daniel Rowland will share insights on topics ranging from navigating a journey in live audio to the role of AI in music production.
