mk012 on vocal

I've tried this once a few years back and had pretty darn good results. The vocal with no eq just fit right into the mix. The room was small, dead, and (if I recall) the singer was a few feet from the mic with it angled down towards him. Just heard the track again recently and wondered why I haven't tried this since. I was wondering if anyone else has gotten good results with this mic for vox.

Hey there.

I've had some decent results with this mic in general, but never on vocals.

I'm honestly not blown away by it, I usually go with my km184s over this little guy, and am actually thinking about selling it.

The midrange doesn't rock my world, which may not be a bad thing on some nasal vocalists.

octava on vox

I have used it lots on vocals!

For a few commercials where the vocal sound had to be 50ies/60ies (Ray Charles style) it sounded better than my (way more expensive) large diaphram condenser mic's, for some reason. Ha... I love that. I do put it though a tube compressor that adds a bit of distortion when singing loud.
I have impressed big time clients in the studio here with the old skool sound.

So why not.

Trust only your ears. (Russia is cool!)

I have used it on some vocals also with quite decent results. Great all around mic.
