I tested Neumann USM69 LDC Stereo microphone in XY cardioids config against Superlux S502 ORTF stereo SDC.
Now this is certainly not a fair comparison, but then, why not?

Neumann M147 was sleep for quite sometimes, today I woke it up and try to have some recording... Oh Lord, NOISE appears... like Click and Pop comes and go! Cables replaces, Inputs changed... no improvement...
What's wrong? any idea to troubleshoot other than cables?
I owned this mic in 1998 for a while and bought one again in 2014. I always thought it was good, plus it allowed investment in Neumann technology, which was otherwise well outside my budget - and still is. However, I find it extremely dark on vox (and instruments) and am certain a mic of this accuracy and calibre shouldn't be. A quick look round shows I'm not the only one but wanted to gauge if there's a potential fault in the signal chain.

Each Channel has no EQ, and was clipped gained in PT10 to get the same level. The Tube-Tech CL1B Plugin was put on each channel in addition toa touch of Reverb (R-Verb) as well. Each Mic was recorded At Berklee College of Music (Studio C) and was ran through the Neve 1073 Mic Pre and The A/D DigiDesign 192.

...that would be your choice?
Hi everyone, I purchased a Neumann U87 microphone (vintage "1980) and Vintech Audio X73i, now I want to counsel,
I want to buy a compressor but do not know what better jump suit in this chain ...
WARM AUDIO WA76, but maybe you have other ideas, not expensive but perfect for this configuration
I am going to buy a microphone for the voice, just have to choose between Neumann's TLM 102 and TLM 103.
Are them suitable also to record brass instruments, or the TLM 107 would be better?
Very long time since I last wrote here, but now I'm back with my organ recordings. :)
Doing preparation for a pipe organ recording. So I went and tested some Schoeps CMC6 and CMC5, with capsule MK 2S and MK3. Neumann KM130 and all audio through the Metric Halo ULN8. What do you think about sound and the first impression of the recording?
There are two test recordings, improvisation and a Bach piece!
Oh well, I know it's only mp3. :whistle:
