Large-diaphragms condenser mic with several polar patterns Omni, Cardioid, Hyper and Figure I love its versatility, serious character, dynamics, extended response, response to transients, fidelity, density, cleanness, and sensitivity.
The first time I used it, I was very disappointed with the result. You need to be careful, it demands you to pay attention to the environment where you are background noise, etc. The richness of this mic in the low frequencies can sometimes mask the rest of the frequency spectrum and make a recording seem heavier especially when close-miking a snare, or bass guitar.
I often find myself having to give this mic more air than others mics, in order to get the best out of it. Excellent as overhead mic, too. Used with the Recorderman technique, you will only need two mics to record drums convincingly. I find it too "dull" for such applications where I prefer mics with more character, depending on the music style and the color I want for the recording.
Could it be that I have never used it on the right guitar style? The sound does not lie. It is really good on acoustic instruments. For the time being, I have been able to record clarinet, toms, acoustic guitar, small wooden percussions, etc… I think this mic loves wood. I have always been pleased with the results.
It is all right for thin vocals or to give some weight to a vocal line. I rarely use it for vocal sessions, for speed reasons, mainly because in a home studio environment where you must record 5 to 8 songs in two days at least in my case , I prefer to use a Chinese mic, which is more effective at first sight, because when you take a closer look, the superiority of this mic is obvious and sits better in the mix, besides being closer to what the musicians want.
I had one and bought another one, so yes, I already did. Did you find this review helpful?
