Hey everyone, I was wondering if mic cables can effect the amount of sibilance that comes through a mic. I recorded vocals for a song a few years back and the sibilance was pretty well controlled. The past two days I recorded the same vocal parts(re-doing a song) using the same mic, mixer, and interface. When comparing the two, the most recent takes have very strong sibilance that can't be found on the original takes. The only difference in my setup is the room I'm recording in(and I'm confident the room wouldn't cause such a drastic change in this area), the cable I'm using, and I have a sock over the mic this time(lol, I know. I need to just spend the few bucks to get a pop filter but I didn't order one yet and needed a quick solution. Doesn't seem to change the tone as far as I can tell). The only other possibilities I can think of is that I may be singing closer to the mic this go round, not sure though. How far away I sang from the mic 3 years ago isn't very fresh in my memory. Also, I guess my singing could have changed and I'm stressing my consonants more these days but I hardly think that I'm stressing them as much as I've heard in the recording if at all. So, I was just curious if the xlr cable could make that kind of difference? Just going through the possibilities. Thanks in advance for your input!
