new UK mics...Aston
Old 5th March 2017

Gear Head
 

I was thinking that I may have faulty line feeds or too much cable length between the mics and the pres, but when I replace the Aston on the same line with any of my other condenser microphones the noise goes completely away. I've sent an email to Aston, but haven't gotten a response yet. I will update this post as soon as I do. I hope it's something that's correctable because I love the Hell out of this mic.

Tried them out on a recent album recording with my band, mostly just to try 'em out (had settled on something else originally).

Short version: They remained on the stands, on every track. They suited the music perfectly, being a little darker, smoother than many other LDCs.

I actually got a little "ribbon feeling".

Chain: Aston Origin (spaced pair) --> Warm WA-412 --> Focusrite Clarett 8PreX
(no compression or eq on the way in)

I also used them for lots of bright electric guitars on these sessions, and I will try it out on vocals as well.

Love these mics!

Any updates to the noise problems? I'm interested in these, however noise would drive me bonkers, would love to actually HEAR this things. A lot of you are posting about it and talking about it, yet there are no audio files here to listen for ourselves....

The Origin is included in the Sweetwater 50 mic shootout. There's a thread here on GS. I'll give you an idea how it faired against some other well regarded mics.

Just got a new pair to listen to instead of the pre-production models I got so long ago. I haven't been reading about the noise. I'll have to check for that.
