Does anyone have any experience with these small DBX RTA mics for music recording. I know they are designed to be used as a system calibration tool but I have 2 of them laying around and am going to be recording drums this weekend. Was wondering if anyone has ever tried them as overheads or any other application.
It is a very flat response omni-directional electret condenser mic.
It's like a poor mans Earthworks microphone.
I used it over a drum set live on a simple location recording, very realistic representation of the actual sound. Too bad the drummers kit was a kinda not so good sounding plexiglas kit with dead heads.
Hmmm. I don't know if i feel like taking the risk. I don't want to put them up and then say...mmm sounds ok... and have to either live with it or rearrange the rest of the microphone set up to substitute out the DBX's. Maybe I'll just rent 2 KM184's instead.
Any other opinions on them would still be appreciated.
