Hello to everyone. I’m looking for a vocal mic to add to my set-up and would like some suggestions. The use would be to (primarily) bring out the qualities of a male vocal between baritone and tenor. I’ve done the search but can’t find anything that addresses this specific question. The mics I currently own (with my “opinion” on their characteristics) are: AKG 414 B-XLS (too thin for this vocal… great on acoustic guitar), TLM 103 (too much ‘warmth’ with an almost ‘compressed’ response), Octava MKL 2500 (too much bottom end even with the roll-off) and Shure KSM44 (transparent response but it hangs in the range of being too ‘boring and distant’ to compliment this particular vocal). I usually record (where the mic has the option) with the bass roll-off switched at 80 Hz in a cardioid polar pattern. It is a single room studio with a flat-response (no unruly reflections) with the mic is set away from and receiving no board or outside noise. The typical signal path is through a Trident S20 direct to a Korg D32XD board set with no effects and flat EQ. Monitors are Event ASP8 with the 80Hz roll-off enabled. If there are some good mic suggestions, the price range would be +/- $1,500 or up but not exceeding $2,000. Though I suspect, with a small project studio, that there is a limit to getting a better sound where better mics are concerned… meaning a $3,500 mic isn‘t going to change my world… but there must be something available that’s better than what I have that will. The answer may lie in the way I use the current set-up… should I not roll of the bass response of either the mics or the monitors? If there are any thoughts on how I might get a better response from my current set-up (a different pre?), that would be appreciated as well, but the primary reason for posting is mic suggestions. Thank you. I’ll wait patiently for any thought, input or opinion on the subject.
