Those would work fine. The Neumann KMS-105, the AE5400 and the Audix VX-10 are all in the same ballpark as high end performing condensors that are also suitable for recording. Cost wise, you can probably get the best deal on an AE5400. Last I checked (admittedly a couple years ago) you could get one for $300 new. The Audix and Neumann will certainly run you more than that new. E-Bay is a good thing for these. The Audix can be had for @$250-350 on e-bay (I have 4 of them - all from E-Bay). The Neumann will be the most expensive, even on E-Bay.
Other alternatives are a Sennheiser MD441 or a Shure SM7.
Change your recording habbits, try to exclude the noice sources and get nearer to
the mic or the mic to the sound source and use noice gate or pref. expander for those tracs when mixing.
Matti, tired -don`t be even amused...
Interestingly, in the last couple projects I've been involved with, the SM7 has been the lead vocal mic of choice (male and female), beating out other more expensive mics. BG vocals choice was AEA R-84.
I´ve seen a good female vocalist singing to a Neumann 87? in her hand
through MTV live concert some years ago. Not the optimal situation
for PA guys though. But as a professional she made no handling
noices and used the mic to her advance. ( Proximity and how much etc. )
She was K.D.Lang , now I remembered.
a "dead" vocal cabin, i built to suppress all the noise in my living room (without the cabin you can hear the cars driving by, the freezer from the kitchen which is in the same room, etc).
i thought, with the right stage mic, maybe i could achieve the same or even better results without this "monster" in my living room
all the "specialists" tell me "such a cabin is ok - but your recorded vocals sound more lifeless than they would in a proper room".
to get an impression - here you can listen to some of my tracks (german pop and english rock):
I heart big time the sennheiser md421's, and people do nothing but rave about the shure sm7. That i don't have, but it's next on my "mics to purchase" list -- (which of course is not really a list on paper or anything, but a vast portion of my brain's memory devoted entirely to all the sexy, shiny, good sounding crap i will always be trying to buy)
this mic has a bass boost that makes my voice sound "thicker" - very pleasing vocal sound for my singing voice. The built quality and overall sound / resolution is very good - I can't find any disadvantage in comparison to my NT2A, yet.
