I don't know if this link has ever been posted here... but if your like to listen to a huge serie of microfone tests this is the place to go: http://testing.holmerup.biz/mic_pretest/index_en.html It's mainly done with budget mics but some are more expensive... Tests on many models from Oktava, ADK,TSM, MXL, Röde, Neumann, Studio Projects, Generis ....and on BehringerECM8000, B.L.U.E. Baby Bottle, Earthworks QTC1, Milab LC-25, Shure Beta58, Line Audio Design CM2, Nevaton MC-48, Earthworks M30, Beyer Dynamic MCE90...*sigh* If you download all the files (Zipped)... it's about 1.46 Gb!!!!!!!! But you can always download single files or even MP3 -versions. Anyway I thought the site would be helpful if you'd like to compare some mics... The guitar is played by the man behind Virtual Guitarist. I really admire people that are crazy enough to do things like this. I hope that you'll enjoy it.
