oktava mk 319
In the videos I have been producing, we've listened to a number of microphones and how they respond to voice and instruments, but for completeness, we'd not heard them on voices. I'd been working on a little job where I'm creating a stage track for a person I've worked with for years and I always send him the stems, and a guide vocal. He then replaces that with his voice, and does another of just the track which he uses live with a real voice and the tracks. I thought it an opportunity to put out an array of mics and record my vocals on the different mics.
My 2 main vocal mics are an AT4033 and an SM58. Most of the time I wind up using the 4033 as I love the high end sparkle it has without being at all harsh in any way on my voice. So I am happy with it. That being said, I think I'm beginning to develop the gear addict syndrome that some of you talk about, and I have around $300 that I'm thinking of investing into a new mic. It'll primarily be another vocal and acoustic guitar mic and right now here's what I'm considering. I've never heard any of these mics.
Any recommendations would be helpful!
I'm moving my mic selection up a notch. My LDC collection has been a pair of MK319s and a pair of Studio Projects C3s. It's been this way for a few years.
P.S. The issue is June 2005
I know this has been covered a lot...but is there a more "bright" vocal mic that will work well on male or female? Has anyone else noticed this about the MK319?
Anyway...does anyone have any suggestions for a step above these mics. Right now I am on a tight budget ($400 and under please). I had a larger budget a week ago, but overlooked a few bills. I need something before my next session because it is more high profile than my last session.
BTW...I'm running the mic into the GT Brick...a nice pre.
The singer I'm currently works with sounds awsome on this mic. But I'm not happy with the overall quality of the signal. I may perhaps just have a "bad" one, as my friend did buy it from guitar center 5 years ago, but I've always hear people saying the tone of the mic will be horrible if you happen to get a bad one, not the noise level or sensitivity.
has anyone heard of this mic? I did a websearch and didn't come up with anything. Its a big ol' thing.
