  • Surprisingly good guitar amp mic

    Audix D4Publié le 04/30/21 à 00:01
    I have had an Audix D4 mic for a couple of years and have mainly used it on floor tom and percussion and bass cabinets. I had a guitar player in the studio a few months ago who wanted to try a kick drum mic on his guitar amp. So I thought ummm, let's try this D4, what a surprise it sounded fantastic. Thought it may have been a one off situation so I have since tried it on guitar a few more times and it always sounds great. I have set it up with SM7B and tried it against a SM57 and a few other common guitar mics for comparison and I have and have generally preferred the D4 capture. Give one a go on guitar you may be surprised, I was....

    It is a dynamic hypercardioid microphone (directional) dedicated low fréquances (bass amp, bass, bass drum etc ...).
    I use it mainly for the sound recordings of my bass amp, but also for transplanting live.
    The metal body is of good quality and relatively small size. Aesthetically pleasing, fairly original form, but it is anecdotal.

    I use it for 2 years, it is the first and only such micro I have. I needed this type of product for the uses mentioned above. I do not regret my choice. The record is clear and warm, knowing that his forte is serious, while not leaving much to the side, the beaches of mediums. When the acute, difficult to judge in this sector through......

    It perfectly captures the sound out of amp, even at high volume, while avoiding "pollution" sound around.
    Supplied with a specific clip, although the high price is correct with respect to quality.

    dynamic, very small

    OVERALL OPINION

    I tried the Beta 52, D6, akg D112, Sm 57,

    of all is that which retains both the bass without being rough (goodbye D112), maintains a good accuracy and good dynamic in the IR and acute diums (goodbye beta 52) and is especially very linear (goodbye D6)

    bass amp sounds as is, coupled with an ID you get what?
    your bass sound, that of your amp (it's not bad is not it)

    The Audix D4 is a dynamic microphone designed for use with instruments. It has a frequency response that is tailored to use with lower instruments, and Audix advertises the Audix D4 as being great on a kick drum, a bass amp, and any other low instruments due to its "flat, linear, response." The microphone has a hypercardioid pickup pattern, and it is capable of handling sound pressure levels of up to 144 dB.

    It also boasts many of Audix's signature taglines for its microphones. The D4 has a proprietary anti feedback design, isolates each instrument's "sweet spot," and has a very low mass diaphragm to improve its transient response. It also has exceptional feedback and off axis......

    It also boasts many of Audix's signature taglines for its microphones. The D4 has a proprietary anti feedback design, isolates each instrument's "sweet spot," and has a very low mass diaphragm to improve its transient response. It also has exceptional feedback and off axis rejection, and it built very ruggedly, so that it is capable of taking a trashing or a beating. The microphone itself does admittedly look a little bit cheap, not quite keeping in line with many of Audix's other microphones. However, this is entirely deceptive, and the ruggedness of these microphones does in fact hold true to Audix's claims, completely contrary to what one may expect when seeing this microphone. The D4 has a frequency response from 40 Hz to 18,000 Hz, and is very much like the D2 in that it is under 4 inches long and weighs just over a quarter of a pound.

    OVERALL OPINION

    The Audix D4, in use, has that thunderous sound that one may expect from an Audix drum microphone, and this one is particular keeps it tight and clean. It sounds a little bit oxymoronic, but the truth is, the Audix D4 has the special unquantifiable something that makes the microphone very versatile, especially in the studio. It gives you that big sound, but does not make it impossible to tone it down by coloring it.

    I can without hesitation recommend the Audix D4 to anyone who wants just a little more oomph out of their drums but is just slightly afraid of the muddiness that usually comes with that oomph.

Even my drummer and sound engineer I don 't come back yet, I rediscovered my drums and those groups that I'm on tour.

    When we started making plays, it was realized that the floor tom had never sounded so good "as is" without any adjustment of EQ or compression is applied to him ...

    Like the other mics in this range battery, it has its own sound, quite punchy and clean, perfect for rock and pop <img class="smiley" src="/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_lol.gif" alt="" />

    The value for money when buying opportunity for the whole package was quite astounding, in the 600 Euros, you can imagine what I had at that price in other brands, even occasion ...

    Strongly recommended to save time and save a bit compared to other brands <img class="smiley" src="/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_lol.gif" alt="" />

    The Audix D4 is a moving coil dynamic primarily designed for use with percussion of all types but more specifically drums.

    It is a rugged and excellent sounding mic much in the vein of a Sennheiser MD409. The lows are tight and full while it also demonstrates clear and accurate mids and highs.

    It is fairly flat down to 38hz and has that nice rise around 2k that gives that great presence and klik to a drum strike.

    All of the Audix D series are small and easily placed on a busy drum kit. Except the D6 of course.

    The D4 was the original kik drum design before the D6 was released and here it shines brightly. A lot of low-end for the size.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have been using this mic for seven years now. Both live and in the studio. It has never failed and has taken a beating . The finish is barely marred even with its use as a low-tom mic, and zero dents from stick strikes. The D-series is a very hardy mic.
    In the studio I like it as a kik drum mic right in on the beater for the klik and a tight lowend response. I use it in conjunction with either another dynamic at the front head, usually an ATM25, or a condenser in a tight cardiod pattern.
    It is also a surprisingly excellent sounding mic for a heavy guitar part played through a multi-speakered cabinet. Its hyper-cardioid pattern helps with phase issues in a multi-mic placement on this type of cabinet.

    The entire kit of D-series I bought all those years back have been nothing but a great bargain and I would definately own them all again.

    The Audix D4 is a dynamic microphone capable of use in both the recording studio and on the stage, although I have only used it in the studio. It is a small mic and is easy to place on drums, which is what I use it for. It is built well and is enclosed in a sturdy case to avoid harm to the microphone. While it is built well, it does have a kind of cheap look to it, so don't let the appearance fool you.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've been using the Audix D4 for about three years. While I was skeptical at first because of how cheap it is and because it does look kind of cheaply made, this is a great microphone for micing tom tom drums that are on the smaller end. This means drums that are 14 inches or less. They also will sound good on electric guitar, but they wouldn't be my first choice. While I would rather have a Sennheiser 421 on any tom tom drum, these are great because the the D4 is about a third of the price. This makes them a great option for the home studio owner looking for a few dynamic drum mics on the cheap. Even though I do like the D4, I would also probably rather have a Shure SM57 for any situation when it comes to recording and is only slightly more expensive than the D4. This being said, this is personal preference and I would encourage interested parties to shoot out the mics themselves if they can as it all depends on what you would like to use the mic for. This is the only Audix microphone I have used, so I don't know how it compares to any of the other Audix microphones. All in all, the Audix D4 is definitley worthy of a look when it comes to recording drums.

    The Audix D4 is a dynamic moving coil type mic that is specifically designed for drums. This mic can be considered the model in between the D2 and D6 by Audix. The D6 is a dedicated kick drum and bass amp mic, while the D2 finds more use as a rack tom mic. The D4 is designed to be something in the middle, so that you could use it on your kick drum, or on your toms. My favorite use for it not surprisingly is the floor tom however. You still get the added mid range and presence that the D2's have, and you get part of the low frequency response that makes the D6 great. This way you can capture a really booming floor tom that can still poke through a busy rock mix. It is a cardioid......

You still get the added mid range and presence that the D2's have, and you get part of the low frequency response that makes the D6 great. This way you can capture a really booming floor tom that can still poke through a busy rock mix. It is a cardioid polar pattern which can't be switched. It doesn't need any phantom power since it's a moving coil capsule type. It will connect to your preamp with an XLR cable. It doesn't have an attenuation pad, so make sure you're not overloading the mic. The mic does have an exceptionally high SPL tolerance though, so that will probably not be an issue. There isn't a low roll-off because you will want to keep in all of the lows you record.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had one of these for almost 10 years. These are great for those times when you want a kick drum that is almost more boxy sounding than deep, and for floor toms which should not have as much low content as a kick drum does. You get a very nice &quot;thwack&quot; sound on the drum skins with this mic without having to do too much with EQ. The Audix D line is very cheap compared to other mics, so it's definitely a good value. I'd get it again.
