Okaaaay so I recorded vocals for a song back in December at a buddy's set up (here is the song): YouTube - Standing in the Rain And I recorded that with the Rode NT1-A. Now I was going to buy that mic, but it was all sold out at Sweetwater so the sales guy recomended me to go with the Perception 220 (because it was in the same price range since the NT1-A was bundled) and I did. Now I dont think that the 220 is a bad mic by any means, but I immediately noticed that my voice sounded different. I wasn't sure if this was because my buddy was using plug-ins that I didn't know about when we recorded at his place, but he says he is pretty sure all he did was compression. Anywho, I'm short on time to type this but I'm wondering if those two mics would really have that difference of a sound if the same preamp and plugins are used? I think my voice sounds quite a bit different, but not HUGE. Still, I liked it better on the NT1-A. Any help would be great. Thanks!
