The Kicking Saturday Vocal mic
why do i own this mic for lead vocal it is open kinda up close so back off set up your mic level add a DBX 902 why it will save you time on the S sound on the highs plus DBX is a world class S killer. only the DBX 902 is the best tool for vocal there is others but DBX keep the vocal is a safe natural setting why play with a computer. i would say make do not fake it you can fake it in a computer ask yourself why.
Depth, Bright, Deep all at the same time.
This microphone captures the voice extremely well. If I could describe this microphone in a few terms, it would be tone rich. This is a pro's pro's kind of microphone, extremely solid and no inherent flaw. Super quiet microphone and inspires confidence recording with it.
Totally transparent. Ultra reliable. Used every day.
"Work horse" people say a lot, which is true although perhaps a little reductive. It is as true to real life as a microphone could get - totally flat / transparent frequency response curve. Got all the moving parts a U87 does, and sounds like it. Perhaps a touch more 'crude' if I had to tell the difference.
Occasionally I yearn for a figure of 8 pattern, let alone an omni, but frankly my work load doesn't really require it so I just roll my eyes and move on : ).
Why mess around?
This thing is amazing. I bought it because (1) its made by Neumann and (2) Drake used it for the whole recording of his break-through album "Thank Me Later" in a hotel room with Noah Shebib (40). Love this mic, it filters out all the noisy crap while remaining honest to its sounds.
