Recording Vocals - Microphone choices

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?

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)

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?

Recording Opera Vocals

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.

Recording vocals and acoustic guitar without a computer

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.


Mic for recording talking and vocals /rap

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.
