Recording Vocals - Microphone choices

Forums

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.

Vocals aren't clear, how to fix them?

Forums

First post for critique. I was told the vocals weren't clear enough, so I'm wondering if I fixed that.
This is kind of a weird peace that started as a folk-ish tune, but turned to "something" else entirely. I got to messing around with Uhe's Tyrell and Zebralette and a few ideas came out. Sort of new for me since I'm not very much a synth kinda guy, but at the same time, I'm pretty opened minded about music. I think my eclectic taste is to my detriment sometimes.
I sing and play everything except the chorus vocals, which were done by a friend of mine.

Blue Spark vs. MLX 990s for home recording (acoustic & vocals)

Forums

hey all. visiting family & planning on doing a little recording with my niece. the only mic i've ever really owned is a studio b1 from like 2002. it died on me & i need to get one really quick and don't want to spend more than $100. I know...not much.

Guitar Center has a MXL 990s Patriot Edition for $55 brand new, but someone in the area has a blue spark for that they'd sell me for $75 that is new too.

Market Price on the Spark is $100 more than the MXL, so I'm guessing it's worth the extra 20 to get the Spark?

Mic for recording talking and vocals /rap

Forums

I have a sure sm58 and a c4000B AKG.
The problem is I like the sure sm58 for listening to myself talk all day. rap music and chorus singing.

So I want a mic like the sm58 thats good for recording talking and vocals and like performance situations.
400-1200 dollar range

I get a lot of sound in my room so that`s why. I like dynamics cause they don`t break but maybe I should move on.
Should I go with hyper cardiod or will the sure ksm9 cut out enough background noise so that I don`t hear my computer or room noise on all the recordings.

Foam Pop Filter On Condenser Mic's When Recording Vocals?

Forums

Hey everyone.

I have a RODE NT1-A, and I'm not a big fan of its pop filter. Now, I've seen the band Queen have a condenser mic, similar to that RODE (in terms of look of the instrument), and they used a pop filter like this on it:

I asked a Guitar Center employee what he thinks about it, and he basically gave me a weird look, but in my head I was thinking that (QUEEN DID IT & THEY KICKED ASS) lol


Has anyone done it before?
