...I put together another VO comparison of the Warbler MKIII (in voice position 1) vs the new Warbler MKVID (all 3 voice positions in cardioid) vs the Warbler I (voice position 1) to try and give some perspective to how the new MKVID falls in terms of it's brightest setting, in comparison the the MKIII, and it's darkest setting in comparison to MKI...

VOCALS: Warbler MKIV D (voice 1) ~ GZ67fet ~ GZ47fet V

This is a sample of vocals on three miss from 3U Audio, Warbler MKIV D (voice 1), GZ67fet, and GZ47fet V. Only the vocals were recorded with these mics. All microphones were in cardio pattern, no pad, and no filter. The all capsules were as close together as possible and at the same height and depth. I set the gain on the mics to be equal on the way in to an Apogee Quartet. The GZ67fet and GZ47fet V were at the same gain setting while the MKIV D needed to be set a little higher. All three mics recorded the same take.

The singer is female, alto, and stood about 25" away from the microphones with no pop filter. The song is Gary Clark Jr.'s The Healing.

The recording room is an office that is treated with Auralex foam squares and bass traps.

I'm a novice at tracking, mixing, mastering, room treatment, mic placement so my inexperience may show.

The samples with just the vocals have no effects, however I did noticed the music from the headphones bled into the recording . The samples with the vocals in the mix have some compression and reverb, nothing else. This was a quick mix effort. These files are uncompressed (about 18MB, 1:09 minutes) so may take a minute to load depending on your internet speed.

My preference is also the GZ47fet V. I'll try them on acoustic guitar next along with the GZ74.

Acoustic Guitar Samples - GZ67fet, GZ47fet V, Warbler MKIV D

All microphones were in cardio pattern, no pad, and the filter switch was on. The capsules were as close together as possible and at the same height and depth. I set the gain on the mics to be equal on the way in. The GZ67fet and GZ47fet V were at the same gain setting while the MKIV D needed to be set a little higher. All three mics recorded the same take.

The mics were pointed at the 12th fret. The guitar was about 25" away from the mics. I did some strumming and fingerstyle. The guitar is a Taylor GC 12fret all Koa with Martin Retro (monel) strings (12s). An Ultex .73mm pick was used on the strumming samples. My finger nails and pads were used on the fingerstyle samples.

While there seemed to be a clear difference in these mics when tracking vocals, I've listened to these samples and it is hard to tell the difference between them. So much so I went back in exported the samples again to make sure I hadn't just exported the same thing over and over again.

The samples are uncompress aif files.

Thanks for these. You're right, they're much closer on guitar than on vox. I can hear the differences but it's slight in this example. I do prefer, by a small margin, the top end on both the GZ67Fet and the GZ47Fet V. Any of them would work though for sure.

If you get a chance, I'd love to hear those GZ74 SDC's on acoustic too.

Will do a comparison of the GZ74 along with a few other SDC mics I have. I couldn't get the GZ74 in the right spot to included it in the group above.

Gotcha. That will be great. We haven't heard much out of the 3U SDC's.

damn, that 47FET V is really cool sounding, I'm def going to get one. its got all the detail of the rest and had a very professional sounding smooth top end.

the GZ251 demos sound very good too - quite thick and in the foreground.

Only other mic thats exciting me is AEG/RTT's 19a9 replica tube mic - not sure which to buy first.
