I just finished a comparison using my voice, which is a gravelly baritone. I've read much inconsistent reviews on the RODE Classic II so I had to find out for myself . I stacked it against a new Neumann U87ai which I love BTW.
I used three of my Favourite Preamps
Great River MP 2NV, Millennia M-2b, PreSonus ADL 600.
The RODE Classic II is lush and wonderful. It is a killer mic for VO to rich Rap/Soul,Blues/Rock vocals to name a few. Wow, I love this thing. For $2000.00 is a great deal. All three amps produced excellent results. The GR and Millennia being exceptional.
Samples? Really I just want to hear what your voice sounds like.
hehe. You aren't missing much if I say no way :) But,maybe I'll post the Testing, 1,2,3 > ABC. but its best to just take my word for it. It could effect the nation if I post me singing lol.
