OVERALL OPINION

Micro SPECIFICATIONS ddi voice in proximity. The output level is low, it is normal for this type of microphone is designed to capture only the foreground, the decline in background noise is important and it was built electro-acoustic intgre a powerful low-cut . It should be set vertically, height of the mouth, against the chin. Obtained in these conditions a superb voice, clear, profound, terrible music and intelligible without plosives and sibilance without houses in the Larsen scne use (for which he seems Designed t it). Studio in the axis of the mouth about 5cm. Restitution lack of air, of course, but it is precisely the aim to close on a trs voice. It's more lgant a U87, but shallower Submitted a U89 and an AKG C414 equilibrated BX-LII. I use it more for the lead voice in the studio, I prfre more to U87. We can make big fat voice well, well ahead, and the voices of children and lgres always intelligible. Static, I do not know better for that use. The Schoeps cmh64 rpond the same requirements, but I do not know enough.
Its large decline in the background makes good trs mic live-studio and home studio as the other instruments and acoustic noise are returned about -30 dBvu. On scne it is more sensitive to feedback that the KMS 105, but a singer who is best eats the microphone (as much). In the studio, his inconvnient is to force the singer to stay at his fig micro and deprives some of its movements, but it may be held by hand without problem, it is done. This is one of two or three microphones condenser I prfre for solo voices, and the only one I like for vocals in proximity. It is becoming trs ais mixer, at least as a U87. It is in that U87 is most like a grave-mdium alive. It's like Ragit him to piano, recovery amp, bass drum, harmonica, in the right direction and acoustic guitar, hi-hat, hi-hat in the wrong direction. It remains a microphone proximity at all times and quickly dtimbre ds that the moves away from the source. Out of the catalog, in rare occasion and given its brand spcificit trs, investment dpend of our own needs.
