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.
What is your list of favourite microphones for recording vocals and do any of these in a list matter? Please feel welcome to add any mic/preamps combos
- small rooms
- live rooms
- dead rooms
- high ceilings
- low ceilings
- soft voice
- music styles
I'm in a few Facebook groups and what to buy to start is the most asked question, so I decide to make this video.
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.
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?
Here's an interesting vid...
Hello Guys! I really need your help!
I sing opera and i am a lyric Baritone.
I' ll be recording lots of things as a Baritone and i really don't know how to do it but i know it's a little complicated.I have recorded rock,metal,pop stuff before but i know that this is a lot different.
All i got is 2 Rhode NT1 mics, one Shure SM58. My audio interface is Roland Quad capture(which has decent mic preamp) and i'll be recording in my basement which is 6 X 5 and 2,4 height Meters. 19,6 X 16,4 and 7,9 height feet. I really can't record anywhere else so it is going to be here.
Hey all, probably a stupid question but I need to know if an MXL-990 condenser mic will work with a Tascam dp-32sd Portastudio without an audio interface. I was thinking of ordering this recorder and mic to get away from computer recording and wanted to make sure I get everything I need at one time.
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.
