A fan Tweets to Madeon, "I'm getting a budget microphone this Christmas, vocal melody plans have been stuck in my head ever since I considered it!" Madeon replies, "you can find a rode nt1a with a full pack for pretty cheap nowadays, and that's the mic i've been recording with" (Tweet from 27 Oct 2015).more
Amazing sound in this price bracket, lots of high end, can be more suited to male vocals, but generally really great on acoustic guitars and percussion. Can't really go wrong at this price, next step would be a Neumann u87 or Blue microphone.
Great all around mic! Captures anything you put in front of it....honest and clear with presence. EQ to taste and you have a all purpose tool at your finger tips. Did I mention Rode backs this product with a 10 YEAR warranty?? Yeah...you can't beat it. (comes with XLR cables, stand mount and pop filter)
Love mine so much....I bought two.
