Hi Guys -
I've had the chance to ask for help on studio monitors (and have settled for the MSP5), and now the next obvious question is on microphones ...
Considering I can't get anything too pricey, how do you feel these options compare (or if they're utterly useless) :
Marshall Elec. MXLV69LE
I'm looking for something around the 350$ range, tops...
I know this kind of question usually poses a dilemma (i.e. if they're all crap, it's better to keep your money or buy their worth of SM57Bs).
They would basically be used for recording voice and acoustic guitar.
Best, and kudos to the list - I've learnt a lot from it (and the most important thing I've learnt is that I know more than I hoped, but less than I should )
I have both the C1 and The V69 (HEHE!!) but they are both great microphones for the money. The C1 (SP) has way too much high end on it. IF you get that mic then get a contrasting mic like a RODE nt1 a which is a bit darker to uses on different tracks because if your one and only mic is a mic like the C1 then you get a curve that looks like this
and it is a little hard on the ears. Get a PreSonus mp20 and use the saturarion feature on 75% and then you have one hell of a combo. I just tried it and i gotta get me a an mp20
I'd recommend the Shure KSM
Ditto onthe KSM 27..Or try a AT 4040
Don..short and simple
I have the C3000 and have gotten some great female vocals on it, have yet to try it on acoustic, but my gut tells me it would be just fine.
Don't go with the AKG3000(b). I can't stand this mic. I bought two of them years ago. I've never liked them on anything. In fact absolutly hated them on most things. Hell if your not convinced I got 2 I'll sell ya. :td:
Yes don't buy the AKG3000b I made that mistake already too.
