Audio Quality - Behringer C-3 Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone


I record with a Behringer C-3 Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone at home. And I don't have an acoustically treated space to record in - I do the maximum amount of soundproofing I can possibly do at home.

Here's a sample of what the mixes currently sound like:


I need a new Large Diaphragm condenser- can you help me choose?

Hi all,

In the recent years I've slowly accumulated most of the studio equipment I need, however for my LDC I'm still using the first mic I ever got from about 4 years ago, a USB Samson G track.

I don't know why I've been so slow to upgrade it, when personally I use my LDC the most out of all mics in the studio.

Overheads: Large or Small Diaphragm?

i am about to invest in some nice overheads, and am not sure weather to buy a matched pair of small condensers or 2 large diaphragm condensers, to use as overheads. I mostly record heavy rock/pop, and like my drums to sound huge. currently using D112 on the kick, sm57's on top and bottom of the snare, and on the toms. Does anyone have any advice on what type of overheads would suit me best?

Large Diaphragm condenser for choirs/orch/etc.


Well... I'd like a few suggestions on Large Diaphragm condensers. Basically, I need something to record choirs and orchestras, and possibly concert bands with. Also, as a Mid mic for M/S recording. I was only hoping to spend $100 - $200... but it looks like I would have to spend a minimum of $600 to get a quality mic! However, I've been looking at the following:

Positioning a large diaphragm condenser

Hi, I am working with a RODE NT1 with the SM1 shockmount. I am having trouble angling the mic into the proper position using a boom stand. I don't have the option of setting up the mic close to the performer, so I have the boom extended. I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions. The SM1 only pivots just a little bit and that's what is making it so difficult to work with.

Large or small Diaphragm ?

I have (in my short life as a recording enthusiast) always used a pair of c1000,s as overheads but I have primarily used them to mic up the cymbals (rolling off everything below 500hz).
I am now trying to progress and to purchase 2 mics that I can use as true overheads. I want two mics that will give a good sound of the whole kit so that all I need to add is a kick and snare mic.
