This is a slightly different take on the impossible question of "which Mic should I buy!"
I know there's a few forum threads on this topic out there, but none of them quite answers my question. I want to try out a few different types of tubes to replace the standard 6922 tube inside my RODE K2. Do I need to replace this tube with the same type (i.e. 6922 aka ECC88) or can I use different types as well?
I've been shifting away from electronic music and working on more indie/shoegazey material as of late, and I've been fighting my vocal takes tooth and nail. I've been using a Neumann tlm-103 and have also tried an AT-4040 and the results have been less than spectacular.
This might sound like a silly question (as i know Neumann mics are legendary microphones), but I am looking to buy a new mic for my studio. I have tried the RODE K2 and I really liked the sound of it on vocals, it sounded a much warmer than my SE electronics mic.
I need a good pre for the RODE K2..
Budget is about the 500/800euro..
BTW i produce Hip hop /RnB
I want to record vocal,rap for my dance music.
i only make dance music and pop music.
my mic preamp is Fous voice mastre pro.
RODE k2 or Studio Projects t3, which should i buy ?
please tell me :roll:
Looking to see if anyone has any comparison between these two mics. I'd be using them for pretty mcuh all instruments but my main purpose is to have a high quality stereo pair for drums and such. I'm familiar with the 414 but I've been reading a lot of good things about the k2. Unfortunately the k2 isn't something I have available to listen to. Features wise eveything is very similar.
my price range is around $700-$800 and i am looking for either of these or any mic in this price range used. i run a small home studio right now in my home and i am looking to finally step into the world of owning a good large diaphragm mic for vocals. i use a KSM32 right now and i personally think its too multi-functional for really good vocals.
I have a K2 but I'm finding it a tad to bright on my vocals. Just a little too high-endy. I'm looking for something a little silkier.
