My go to for screaming vocals, spoken word, rap, and podcasts.
If you want clear and concise vocals this mic is all you need. Metal vocalists or anybody mixing metal vocals need this mic. It will capture growls and squeals. The late great Mitch Lucker used this mic and will make your vocals pop out of the musical ether that is metal. If metal isn't your thing its great on any vocal performance, capturing the voice clear with all its perfection or imperfection. A lot of people think that its low gain makes it hard to use but if you are mixing, this mic will give you all the headroom needed to make mixing easy.
Butter on Vox, good on Kick & Bass cabs too.
For me it falls under essentials. If memory serves the late King of Pop MJ used it for all of the Vox on Thriller...with a palace of a studio as well I'm sure it was an amazing signal chain-but SM7's smooth as silk in this mans opinion. THEY DO REQUIRE A GOOD AMOUNT OF GAIN THO. So match it with the right pre & your psyched.
It's just always great.
Built like a tank, smooth as butter, and never unflattering. This is just a great vocal mic that can be used for most people to get a quality outcome. I think its best suited for male vocalists but I think it can be a good choice for just about anyone. Needs gain, it's true. Does even better with a good preamp, but for most modern interfaces going direct in will work just fine.
It took me a while to upgrade to this for my home studio just due to the price, but now that I have it I will never part with it. A must-have for audio work, and great for home studios due to background noise rejection provided by dynamic mics.
