Microphone used for making voice only, words spoken (audio books) and not sung.
I was curious to see the results compared to a Neumann U87.
I purchased because I thought neumann was a fair bit of very serious voice. Preamps I are Focusrite Liquid chanel beautiful and I load different preamps and compressors, it did not change.
So comes the VM1 brauwner. The assembly is somewhat difficult for the anti-pop filte shaped cylindrical lampshade. In addition, a microphone placed aside, we are left with an amount in full before the filter: should tweak.
And go. The rendering is very neutral and I seemed a little pushed into the medium compared to neumann. Preamps and compressors are loaded Manley and the voice of the narrator is a very light but little push, almost whispered voice. Not any less wheezing and pop (micro shifted slightly to the right.
And a word, superb microphone that deserves its reputation.
A small problem: at this price point, the doc is entirely in German (I bought cheap Thomann) and their website (Brauwner) bug on the doc in English.
They could make a little effort.
Here is a micro almost universal, high-end ... I saw him at work in concert on the violin Subramaniam, and I had the pleasure to listen to the result after the fact: I will not say ... there were also taken on his acoustic guitar, flamenco and classical, certainly the most ungrateful instrument to record, again, the result is perfect to me! and believe me I'm so demanding. This is a REAL TUBE microphone technology, nothing to do with microphones Euro 1000 who claim to do the same, let me laugh ... which is complementary to "blow" the first time I actually use this mic is that it was a good ten minutes it was plugged in front of me and I do not realize it was! You can imagine my surprise? All that to say that in terms of transparency, it's downright crazy. Try you'll see. that day I had the headphones back of this gear that I was simply a 1604 VLZ ... nothing unusual on that side.
I do not have, I used it in the studio for three weeks and I have an indelible memory, I loved everything about this microphone, the sound, the sound more accurately, 100%, I well its aesthetics, its aluminum case provided very luxurious, your microphone can be transported completely immune to shocks.
I enjoyed the food too, because the directional change (there are all the main) is done from a button on the power, so remote (if desired), this button also does makes no noise when the handle.
I could compare it to a Neumann U87 I have, and it must be said that the Braun goes a good step above.
value for money remains relatively Raisson considering that you buy there may be the best or one of the best three or four microphones on the market.
if I had the budget is certainly one I would buy and knowingly.
Obviously there are also the manley, but they are even more expensive ...
who am demanding and does not want color on my nylon string guitars, I found the microphone to excellence, and the Rolls in my opinion.
S. P I have here now a DPA 4011 an excellent cardioid microphone very straight in his return and both precise and rich in the end analysis ....
But Brauner shows a return-on guitars Dumoine - more natural, more transparent, brings a real presence + (very nice in this register).
dpa in a 4011 best sum ....
if I win the lottery when I inherit from my or my (...) (...) buy it, and one or two neve preamps and API.
