V67G clip

V67G clip

Did this sitting on my bed with my laptop, Line 6 Toneport UX2 as interface in to Sonar 8.5 x64 on Win 7. Used a Presonus MP20 with Jensen Tranny and Burr Brown chips. Mic for everything was a MXL V67G stock, in a desktop stand sitting on my bed, trying to absorb as much low end as possible. Acoustis Right, Left and Lead Center all with V67G, same with main vocal and harmony track, Strings was absynth soft synth in Sonar. I want to get my V67G modded now, cause I think it's just a darn good mic, even stock.

Nice man! Everything sounds great! I love my V67G. I too am looking forward to getting it modded. I've recommended this mic to a bunch of other people too... It's fantastic.

Anyone have a comparison between the stock and modded V67G?

Check the MXL 2003a shootout thread, which includes both a stock V67g and a modded one.

Nice clip thumbsup

The V67g does sound very nice stock.

What the mod does is smooth out the high end and changes the tone to be more like the U87.

I like the guitar work too!!

I'm curious what people characterize the V67G high frequencies issue as.. If there is an issue.

Perhaps he isnt saying its a "problem" but that the modification is just to change the microphone's voice to the U87

how about the ssssssssibilance top end that is all over the example track here? otherwise it sounded ok on guitar but ive noticed bright mics that are sibilance also tend to pick up extra fret and string noise

your voice is great but to be honest i couldnt listen to the whole song sibilance is a huge pet peave of mine

If you had to stick a number or range on it, what frequencies do you think are the over-hyped sibilance roughly? (noob question sorry ;P )

EDIT: Also, technique (and a pop filter of course) can go a long way to controlling that

I mistakenly didn't use my pop filter for this vocql, obviously i should have, and recently I have discovered the waves de-esser and from now i I will use that on my vocal tracks. I bought that waves pack a while back and thought there were actually too many plugs that I would never use, but now i am finding out about more and more of them.
