RME forced to use other chips for the foreseeable future

Global chip crisis with extreme never before encountered production and distribution challenges.

Apart from that, at the end of 2020 a fire destroyed AKM's production facilities for AD and DA converter chips. A resumption of production and thus availability of these components is not expected before 2022. Therefore, many manufacturers - like RME - are forced to either discontinue products based on AKM chips, or to use other chips for the foreseeable future.

Just released my first album (blues rock instrumental) — cheers for the mixing feedback over the year!

Hoping you all agree it turned out ok!?

Will a microphone with a frequency response of e.g. 50-15000 Hz not capture anything at all above 15k?

Hello! Been a while since last time I posted here.

In all my years of recording I have never bothered to learn what the specified frequency response (FR) of a microphone really means. I have always thought it means that the mic wont capture anything outside of the FR range, but is that really true?

According to Shure the FR "defines the range of sound that a microphone can reproduce and how its output varies within that range". 

Is it like if you'd put a low pass filter with a slope of say 96 dB/octave at 15k?

Where do most audio engineers live?

While searching for information on audio engineering, google highlighted this:

Although there are abundant audio engineer jobs in America, a large number of them are in the Northeast. Oregon is the best state in the country for audio engineer jobs, and Maine has the second-highest median salary in the country. Oregon is the best state for jobs for audio engineers, and Rhode Island is the worst.
