Help need for recording with Oktava 219

Okaay let me first start off by saying im not asking for feedback on if this is a good mic or not. i personally love the recordings it produces and since it was free i have no room to complain.. Okay to my question

It has these switches on the back. and i know what they are for.. but i still do not fully understand how i should be using them..

i have been recording on "N"ominal and i want to say that the High pass filter is on also.. but what my concern is.. what should these settings be for vocals? i have a recording session coming up with a buddy of mine who sings. and i want to get this dillema corrected so i dont have to ask him to re-do it later..

im wondering if i should record with nominal or 10 db

please and thank you

Most likely you should leave it on (0 or N), not the -10. Try with the high pass and without, and pick the one you like best. If you can't decide, pick flat.


Don't be embarassed about that mic, it's worth what you paid for it. Heck, it's worth $100 more than you paid for it, IMO.

thanks for taking your time and responding. and its not that im embarressed about it ive just seen alot of mixed opinions about it. but i personally think its a very good versitile microphone. i also have a lil dillema when recording my buddy since he sings very louding and i get clipping on the recording so i adjust the gain and then its too low -.- probably cause i record in a small room. but still experiementing.
