    this weekend we test 12 mics.
    we recorded:

    vocals
    saxophon
    shaker
    preamp: langevin dvc
    a/d: waves L2

    i wanna make a "blindtest", so the files just named "vox1, vox2, vox...".
    all files are recorded 24bit/44.1 without any manipulation, the levels are somethimes a bit different. for a good compare please balance the levels of the files.
    it would be nice, if you can send my for each file you result. give points between 1 & 10, 1 for really bad, 10 for fantastic.
    the email is:

    mictest@echochamber.ch

    at the end of november i will write the names of the mic's & the result on my page.
    if someone like a mic a lot & will buy it before end of november, i send him the mic-name of his prefered mic.

    the files can be downloaded at:

    http://biobonsai.com/echochamber/microphones/

    its around 120mb! sorry, but i think, mp3 are not good enough for a mic-test.

    if you wanna be sure, that i don't change the mic/number later to manipulate, i can send a list now to someone like fletcher or george massenburg...if the say o.k. to this.

    have a nice time
    :)

    all mics are large diagram condensers, the cheapest one is a chinamic, the most expensive a german tubemic for 8 times the price of the chinamic.

    hi,

    nice test. Even the Langevin DV could not save some of those dogs. The good ones were GOOD.
    I sent you an email with my opinions.
    Please send me the results via email. I am eager to know

    it would be nice, if i can get a vote for each micropone, not only the nice one's.
    only this way i can make a solid ranking.
