Just starting using a pair of RODE NT5's with directional capsules to record the guzheng. After some experimenting with positions, I've settled on both overhead, one on each side, about 3ft from the instrument. I've added no effects to this recording other than a compressor. What do you think?
The capsules in the RODE NT4 and NT5 have identical specs, and every review I've seen says that the matched pair of NT5s, when mounted for coincident stereo recording sound identical to the NT4.
So why is the NT4 priced 25% more than the NT5 Pair?
I'd like to get a pair for recording on-the-road; the NT4 looks more convenient for Stereo recording, but the separate mics in a pair of NT5s may be more flexible. Is the NT4 a better mic than a pair of NT5s for any technical reason?
RODE NT5 Matched Pair for $430 (sdc condensers)
I can't decide in between a pair of NT5's or a pair of NT1000's for drum overheads.
I use overheads as the main mics, I place them to pickup the boom of the toms, not just the cymbals.
I'm looking for a big open sound.
The price difference is not an issue.
I've just purchased a Tascam US-122 MKII audio interface, two dead cats and a matched pair of RODE NT5s for recording via my laptop, hopefully outdoors. The reason for this is to have good audio for the videos i'll be filming on my canon 550d of various artists, for posting on YouTube, but maybe also, just for readers of my site, also downloads of the tracks.
Hi everyone, hope all is happy tracking. Was wondering if you had to choose between the RODE NT1's or NT5"s for overhead which you do cats prefer?
I'm trying to decide between the nt5's and the mk012, mp.
I need something that I can also use on acoustic guitar and overheads, and some day I'll get a better SDC for acoustic guitars etc. But for now I need something that will work well with both.
I heard the nt5's are a bit harsh on the high end, and I don't like a lot of high end on mics but for overheads this might be better than the mk012's. But is that high end too much for acoustic guitar?
In a perfect world I wouldn't have to worry about it but for my budget I do for the time being.
I am in the market to purchase a matched pair of condenser microphones. I do not have an incredible budget and have been looking around for mics that suit my needs.
I already own an Audio-Technica AT4040 and an AKG C1000s, which so far have provided me with satisfying results. Recently however I had the opportunity to hire a range of microphones and record my friend's project - a set of automated music machines. There's a video here;
As subject states. I'm considering either a pair of RODE nt5's or a pair of AT3031's. Here in Vancouver Canada, the prices are as follows for each:
RODE : $495 for a stereo pair
AT's: $199 a piece ($398 pair)
So, the AT's are nearly a hundred bucks cheaper. I've read quite a few online reviews on harmony central and musician's friend and such. Both microphones are very highly regarded it seems, in terms of bang for the buck. I imagine I'd end up being happy with either one. I'm just wondering if anyone has had any direct comparison experience with these mikes?
hi all, i'm in the market for a pair of small diapragm mics, i'm wondering if anyone has advice regarding RODE NT5 vs. Peluso CEMC6. This will be my first pair of SDC's, so they need to be pretty versatile. Mainly acoustic guitar and drum overheads/room.
