Alright, I've finally gotten this all together. These tests are less than scientific, as they were constrained by my time with the bands/artists and were meant to determine which was the best mic for our purposes. However, I did make some efforts at control: All mics were run into my Focusrite ISA 428, with a little tweaking of the gain. No processing coming in or going out. The impedance was set at ISA 110 (still looking for an actual #). W/o any further delay, here are are a series of tracks of a male vocalist signing the same verse.: Shure SM58 (he sang a different part, but I'll get it up soon anyways) Sennheiser e835 http://www.sendspace.com/pro/dl/0cwx2h Sennheiser MD 421-II http://www.sendspace.com/pro/dl/sohqjv MXL 3000 http://www.sendspace.com/pro/dl/43i10f AKG C 414 B-XLS http://www.sendspace.com/pro/dl/cnib7y Blue Bluebird http://www.sendspace.com/pro/dl/lpmeqo Cascade FATHEAD-II http://www.sendspace.com/pro/dl/yxbeum Any questions, comments, concerns? Please send them my way - I'm hoping to make this a useful experiment for all of us.
