Kind of hard to tell what the mics will do in that room, eh?

Hey, your thread caught my eye 'cause I just sold my Genesis. theproduca was being an ass all over this, so I just wanted to pop in and say that I enjoyed the song quite a bit. Simple structure and a nice, rolling rhythm.
Genesis might not be the best on her voice (as you said), but the guitar sounds good to me.

Thanks man. cool. Yeah it's a simple song. It's supposed to be. In the future when I record her voice, I won't use the Genesis. It's just too dark and it doesn't really do justice to her voice. I do like it for my vocals. At least I'll say that it'll get me by for now. I'm sure there are better mics out there, but I don't regret buying it.

Thanks for posting

Hey, thanks for this thread. It's so nice to see someone post ACTUAL sound clips of a mic, so that people trying to make buying decisions can make them. I'm also trying to decide between the MXL Genesis and the V69 Mogami, and the information for or against that I could find on the Internet was sadly lacking.

Props to you for putting your stuff out there for others to benefit from.

Absolutely happy to do it man. Glad someone found it useful. Actually an impressive mic to try for about half the money of the Genesis is the new Blue Spark. I haven't recorded any samples with it yet but its a pretty sexy sounding mic for $200. Much more open and bright than Genesis with a really cool silky top end that doesn't get as biting as most of the cheap mics I've had my hands on. If you get a chance try one before you decide.
