Best Microphone For Recording Vocals
MXL Mics 770 Cardioid Condenser Microphone
Best Microphone For Recording Vocals is very nice product. I’m confused here. Why is this mic such a low price but fantastic quality. This is quite the most literal plug and play mic there. I am a musician who has recorded with the u87s and top end blue mics and the list goes on. I’ve been in studios frustrated with the way my vocals sound. Not enough air, not enough bass, not full enough, not powerful enough. The list goes on.
I spent under 5 minutes getting the mic to cut through the mix all while grabbing the bass in my voice without the boom. I feel like I’m cheating using this mic. Honestly trying to find something wrong with it and can’t. I would fit into the audiophile group I believe and there are many cases where price won’t always line up with sound quality. Other times, you’ve got to bite the bullet. This mic is a great mic. I’ve seen a lot of reviews from non musicians using this mic and I hope to address concerns of people saying they need a Neumann to sound good.
Just not the case. I would advise using a great interface and pre amp and ADA and so forth. But as for the professional aspect of this mic, there’s no compromising quality for price. My biggest worry was the frequency response chart having a lot of high end. You can’t hear it. It just adds air to the vocals. Probably wouldn’t use it on overheads for cymbals, but I’m just focused on the vocals. I’ve heard a lot of mxl mics that have high problems with sybelence. This one doesn’t surprisingly. Wish I saw more professional reviews of this mic.Promised Review by Trevor Utz
