Do you have a list or what say you... ?
I've already owned:
-c214 (liked it)
-ksm42 (sometimes I liked it but wasn't my fav)
-at4047 (didn't really like it that much)
-st69 (sometimes I LOVE it sometimes not as much)
Okay so I'm looking for one of these and am apprehensive hence the thread you see here:
- c214 again
- Warbler 87 imitation
In this video I explain where it count the most to invest. If you don't get the basics right there ain't nothing you can buy that will make you sound good.
Oftentimes vocals are looked upon as routine in the recording realm. As a result, I feel the effort one puts into details like the choice of the right mic, pre-amp, etc is minimal. But from what I've experienced, vocal recording is an area of huge possibilities. Thoughts?
Here is a blog that discusses this point:
I recorded vocals lately, and cannot get rid of aggressive high frequencies that weren't there before...
You can hear the main nasty frequency around 3-4Khz and some other ones from1 to 3 kHZ ( audio: Creep_VXREC_WA87ChorusAnnecy 1&2 )
I recorded the same vocals 1 month ago in another flat, and it was fine ( see audio "Creep_VXREC_WA87ChorusDundee").
