Wooo hoo! So after a very easy setup and a weeks worth of tweaking we think we’ve got the new setup at Red Angel Studios operating at tip top performance!
Check out the difference between VO recordings on the same microphone from our last system (tascam fw-1800) and our new system (ssl x-logic x-rack w/ apogee symphony i/o) ! Would love to hear feedback!
Recently I got the chance to shoot-out three great microphones. My friend, Chris at dmt pro, brought by a Royer mic for a loaner for a week and I figured it would be a great opportunity to test against our other go to mics! We ran them through our tascam FW-1800 desk. THough I would love to do the shoot out again when our ssl xrack mic pres get here – and also the apogee symphony … but since we only had the new toy for a week, I figured better try it out!
So to go over the mics again:
The Royer – a ribbon based microphone. Which I found to be very interesting. I found it to add a smoothness to the voice over that might sound very nice for book reading or other narrations.
The MK4 – which has been a go to mic for me for VO and lip synch dubbing, because of it’s overall good for everything sound.
The Rhode NTK – a nice mic, that I use as a go to mic for VO – when I need a rich – in your face sound / like television commercials. I really like this mic on male vocals.
Anyhow — here are the wavs and you can hear them for yourself. 🙂 Feel free to comment and I hope you find these useful.
