Excellent Mic at any Price

M-Audio SolarisPublished on 12/05/17 at 16:09
I've run studios for decades and had/used/auditioned many, many mics from very spendy ones (U47, U67, RCA 77 etc) to cheap ones. The Solaris is a very good sounding LDC. I prefer the frequency response in figure 8 mode. Sounds even smoother with that pattern. This may be the best cheap LDC one can get, period.

The M-Audio Solaris is a large diaphragm condenser microphone that is designed for use in the recording studio.  The mic has a high pass filter as well as a pad that has switches on the microphone itself.  It has an interesting and unique including a circle that encloses the capsule.



OVERALL OPINION

I've been using the M-Audio Solaris for about a year or so and have found it to be a pretty good condenser microphone.  I usually don't trust the microphones made by M-Audio as I find that most of the time they aren't made at as high of a quality as other microphones out there that I use, but the Solaris turns out to be an exception.  The shape of the mic makes it a good choice for vocals...…

I've been using the M-Audio Solaris for about a year or so and have found it to be a pretty good condenser microphone.  I usually don't trust the microphones made by M-Audio as I find that most of the time they aren't made at as high of a quality as other microphones out there that I use, but the Solaris turns out to be an exception.  The shape of the mic makes it a good choice for vocals as the circular shape makes it perfect for picking up sounds from the mouth of any type of singer.  The sound quality is pretty clear and I find that I'm always pretty happy with the results I get coming from this microphone.  In addition to using this microphone as a vocal mic, it works well for a variety of other applications including as a room mic for electric guitar, and as a close up mic for acoustic guitar and other acoustic instruments.  The price of the M-Audio Solaris isn't all that cheap as is the case with most M-Audio mics, but it is pretty cheap when compared to some other mics of this caliber out there.  While I don't think that this microphone is suitable for professionals as I don't think the sound quality is up to par, this is a pefect microphone for home studio owners.  If you are looking for a good sounding microphone at a cheap price, the M-Audio Solaris is as good of a mic in this price range as you can find.

Micro versatile static condenser, etc. Everything has been said and I am not an admirer of technical features.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for some years, I bought it when the model appeared, I had read good reviews on M-Audio microphones in this price range.
Supplied with a sturdy metal box and its support "shock mount" medium quality but very correct, I apologize for the convenience that the metal casing is not longer and we can not include the suspension.

I used it mainly for the vocals and guitars, I was relatively convinced of anything I could get him to do. Good return, you must do a lot of tests in settings directivity and low-cut, but in any case I always knew that I get...…

Good quality for a decent price (329 € new one if I remember correctly), this is not a Rode K-2 or the Neumann, but I think less than 400 € is not found as well (notice n ' only my opinion).
