I'm planning to (finally) buy my very first mic, and I'm overwhelmed with the choices. I need some good advice! Thanks so much!
Here are the particulars: I sing mostly classical and Byzantine music, church music, and jazz standards. My voice ranges from mezzo on classical/Byzantine music to alto on jazz, and can get quite powerful when singing classical. The timber ranges from soft to metallic.
What I'm looking for is a recording mic (under $600) that will bring out the best in my voice.
I am also thinking of buying an Apogee Duet 2 to go with the mic and my Macbook Pro.
Please help me find my mic!
My first choice for a female vocalist is a Neumann KMS 105. This certainly rugged enough to withstand the rigors of the road, and it is completely credible as a studio microphone as well.
It may be a few dollars more than your budget but mine sounds as good today as it did when I got it about 7 years ago.
Note: There is a preset for this microphone in the Bose T1 ToneMatch® Audio Engine. The T1® can also be used as an interface for recording via .
I hope that helps.
PS - this forum is dedicated to the Bose L1® family of products. Are you using an L1®?
Heil PR20 on the low end of cost ($99) - Heil PR40 on the upper end ($300).
