The Audix OM6 is a hand held style dynamic microphone that can be used in just about any situation. I've personally only used it in a recording studio where I was the assistant engineering on the session. The OM6 has a hypercardioid polar pick up pattern, so it picks up sound best when a source goes directly head on into it. While I haven't used this for vocals during a live show, this is the perfect kind of microphone for that sort of use. The setting that I used it in was for a live recording session.

OVERALL OPINION

When using the Audix OM6, the main idea for us was to get a nice sounding vocal without it picking up too much surrounding sound since the singer was in the same room as the drummer and the rest of the band. This wasn't for the recording of an album, but for a live recording session, so the idea was more to get a vibe with everyone in the room rather than isolating everyone. We choose the Audix OM6 one day when we decided to start experimenting with the vocal microphone that we did for these sessions to see if anything else could work as well as the Electrovoice RE-20s that we were normally using to record vocals. The OM6 was around and seemed like a logical choice because of it's hand held nature and the fact that it is a hyper cardioid microphone that won't pick up unnecessary low or high end sound. While perhaps not as good for this application as the RE-20 was, the Audix OM6 got us a very good sound when run through a Neve 8108 console and a Tube Tech compressor. It wasn't as full sounding as the RE-20, but was definitely adequate and did a great job of isolating the vocal sound. Although a bit more expensive than other hand held microphones of this nature, the OM6 is definitely in another league as it sounds a lot better than most of them out there as well. If you're looking for a high quality vocal mic for studio live sessions or live shows, the Audix OM6 should definitely be on the list of mics to investigate.
