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?
1. Audix SCX1:
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
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.
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
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?
Ok...so 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?
