AKG D5!

For a scratch track but it's still a nice little mic. I actually prefer it to the SM7b most of the time!

I just realized, you asked about vocal mics, and not mics in general. So, never mind my previous post

Ya, Kev. It's the sound of baked chocolate chip cooks. Warm and gooey. Responds well to post EQ.

You bet your ass for vocals. Nice breathy female singer with just a touch of bitey attitude. Going for a vintage vibe when it's all done. Bonus: She knows how to work the proximity effect.

Only an old short ribbon would've been better, maybe... Inspired by Pink Floyd @ Pompeii, honestly. Gilmore sings into an old 409 for most of that film.

I have an oversized mic locker, I experiment a lot... too much maybe. For example: I've gotten damn near perfect results from MK-012 for vox. Think outside the box a little

In the meantime I'm going to bake some real cookies. They'll make me feel better when I'm using my crappy mics.
