Hey guys, this is a long shot, but I thought I'd try. I'm looking to buy one mic for a home studio. I'd like to stay under $1000k, or worse-case scenario not much over it. I've read through forums and listened to many shoot-outs. My main concern is I want something that really works well with my voice. I know the only way to really figure that out is to go to a studio and do it, but the area I live in has no studios with a decent mic selection, nor are there any places to rent mics from. I'd have to book studio time and travel a long way. Would anyone with experience be able to listen to this video of me singing and give it a shot at a mic that would complement my voice? Toto - Africa (Wyatt Welsh cover) - YouTube I was thinking about the AKG c414 b-uls? I wanted to do the vocals at home so I could really spend the time to get the best performance. Am I better off paying studio price to use something like the Neumann u87? I know that the pre is a big factor, and that's for a different thread, but assuming I have a good pre, any suggestions?
