I record about 90% hip hop 3-5 nights a week. I have U87
which sounds great on some voices. I actually use my SM7b
quite a bit though. It's a handy mic to have around or rap vox.
is sometimes SO brittle sounding that it actually hurts my ears after a long night. It's also extremely sibilant. I have to have it tilted a bit, a pop filter, and often have the talent back a ft or 2 from the mic.
sounds pretty good no matter what, unless you're not rocking directly straight in to it.
I've been eyeing up a Kiwi
or something else too, tho a Mac Pro and PT9 will be first.
