In this video, DUB FX goes thorough some of his essential gear. Starting around 0:30 in this video, he talks about his Rode K2 mic: “…definitely my microphones, because I’m a vocalist, and pretty much most of my music comes from my mouth. So definitely the Manley VOXBOX… as well as my Rode K2 mic, which I *love* the sound of. Being a valve mic it brings out the growl in my voice a lot more, and it sounds great for beat-boxing as well, it adds a little bit of harmonic soft clipping - sort of that distortion in the bottom end as well as the top end. It just sounds really smooth.”more
In a December 2013 article for Australia's Audio Technology magazine, Kevein Parker mentioned using the Røde K2 as a mono overhead drum mic. On the thoughts behind the choice, he said “I’m not even sure if you’re meant to use that as an overhead. I think it might be a vocal mic or something. But it works, and at the end of the day, even if you’re doing it wrong, the fact that you’re doing it wrong is going to make it sound different to how everyone else used it, which is ultimately a good thing. If you make it sound different in some way, then it’s going to give it a flavour different to everyone else that’s using the gear as it should be used.”more
