neumann u87 vs u87ai
I found this interesting and entertaining so here ya go. It was pretty hard to hear the subtle detail on a youtube but to me they sounded close but the ai was sightly brighter. Interesting to hear how everyone hears things different. I like the fact they had a women's ears in this too. Women tend to be less tolerant to upper mids and she chose the ai.
I just finished a comparison using my voice, which is a gravelly baritone. I've read much inconsistent reviews on the RODE Classic II so I had to find out for myself . I stacked it against a new Neumann U87ai which I love BTW.
I used three of my Favourite Preamps
Great River MP 2NV, Millennia M-2b, PreSonus ADL 600.
I am getting a new Neumann U87ai and was wondering what the differences were between the original U87 and and the ai.
I've read so much bias and or opinions on both that its hard to get the real facts as to which one is better or worse. I come to the conclusion that either way you shoot, its still a beauty and able to take eq very well.
I'm searching for a professional microphone for recording vocals and acoustic instruments. I've heard about the Neumann U87. It should be a very good item for this recording situation but the company Neumann only produces now the new model U87Ai. Can anybody tell me what the differences are between the two mics?
