akg vs neumann
I'm about to upgrade my mic from AKG Perception 120 to Neumann TLM 103 .. the thing is.. will the AKG shockmount be compatible with the TLM 103 or do i need an adapter?
I have a small home studio and I am looking to purchase my first high end mic. It will be running directly into the preamps on my Apogee Duet interface. I will use it mainly for recording my Taylor GS5 and Vocals and will occasionally use it for piano as well. I have about 1000$ to spend and I am looking for the best mic. I have a lot of experience with the C 414, some experience with the TLM 103, and no experience with the TLM 102 but I hear that it is nice. I like the C 414 but I don't know the other mics well enough to say that one is better.
I'm trying to decide on a vocal mic for my home studio. I've used a borrowed AKG C414 for while on vocals and on acoustic instruments for the last couple of years and am about to purchase a mic of my own. I've read some on the Neumann BCM104 and I'm wondering how it compares to the AKG. I'll mostly be tracking male vocals/country music. Anyone have any input? thnx!
