Audix VX5?


Has anyone on here used the Audix VX5 live vocal condenser? I noticed the specs say it has a self noise of 26dB which seems pretty high?
What is the output and self noise of this mic like? Also, how does it compare to a Shure Beta87a?


Audix SCX1 or AKG Blue Line for recording dialogue?

I'm working on my first short film. New to the art. Am in the process of getting the audio gear I need. I've done a fair amount of research on what I need to record dialogue indoors (which is all I need to do for this project). My understanding is that the best type of mic for my purposes is a small diaphragm condenser with a hypercardiod pattern. I have found two microphones in my price range, but they have different specs. Was wondering if anyone could let me know which is the better option. I'll be using them with an H4N. The mics are:

1. Audix SCX1:

Audix SCX25-A

Large-diaphragm Transducer Type Cardioid Condenser Microphone.

SCX-25 delivers a sound quality found in classic mics that are much larger and many times more expensive. Uniquely shock-mounted within an intricate machined brass ring, the capsule is isolated from the microphone body and the electronics. By successfully minimizing acoustic reflections and diffractions, SCX-25 delivers a pure, open-air sound unlike any other mic.


• Transducer Type Condenser
• Frequency Response 20 Hz - 20 kHz

Audix 50 inch Carbon fiber boom system

I've been looking at the Audix Carbon fiber boom systems and wondering if our crew has had the opportunity to use them for choirs, and overheads? Maybe TheJackAttack?

I'm particularly interested in the Miniature Mics like:

Also, when they say they have built-in preamps but you still need Phantom of course, but that is how I connect PP via my outboard pres to get into the daw is a bit confusing for me.

SM57 vs. Audix i5

I know most consider the 57 industry standard, and a good go-to mic, but put popularity and all that aside. I want to know what you think of each of them and more importantly WHY.


EDIT: industry standard and go-to mic for Micing guitar amps and snare drums. Just so I don't get flamed for making a blanket statement. :p

Another mic question... Audix D2's

I have another mic-related question.

I recently picked up a pair of Audix D-2 drum mic's, but this particular pair each has a smaller, more compact metal screen on it than all the other D-2's I have seen so far. It just plain looks different. Everything else looks the same as my other D-2's (as well as the other D-2's I have seen so far).

Has Audix recently re-designed the screens on their D-2 mic's, or did I get some sort of counterfeit? Or perhaps someone may have screwed on a different screen?

Audix i5 vs. Sennheiser e609 I'm looking to expand (once again) my studios dynamic mic's...right now I'm recording only with Shure sm57's as my dynamic mics. I'm looking for I mic mainly for recording some guitar cabinets but it would be a plus if it could record some drum tracks/ other stuff...
both of the mics cost the same (100$) any one had some exprince with one or both of them?
what do u say?
