Lynn (and anyone else who's used it) have you tried out any of the Bock/Soundelux microphones, with the FAT switch on-For vocals?

Thanks, Chris

Some Mojave's I've found a little miss, but when they're good they're REALLY good.!
Can you post a link to a song that you recorded vocals with the ma1000? Would love to hear.

Chris,

The FAT switch makes a huge difference in the sound. AND in the output level of the mic. (As much as 6dB as I recall.) I didn't do a level matched comparison so I can't comment on the differences in the EQ, but it did sound drastically different. Again, part of that was the level difference.

My U195 is my most-used vocal mic, and I use the FAT switch in conjunction with the HPF for most singers. The effect, to my ears, is to emphasize the fundamental of the voice in a way that gives the track more "elbow room" in the mix. I can then usually leave the low end pretty much alone and use EQ to fine-tune the midrange. This works better for some singers than others--sometimes it can get overly creamy--but most often it's a good thing.

Thanks Lynn and nightchef. So far I've mostly tried the U195 in "male falsetto" (high Soprano), with the HPF/FAT switch engaged. It's fantastic for that.

I'll have to try that more, in my Baritone/2nd Tenor registers.
My guess is that for the thicker Bari range, I'll keep it flat.

probably my trust old sm7.

it just works on such a wide variety of voices.

i've got some nice LDCs, some tube mics, etc...but the sm7 rarely fails me.

Hadn't tried an AKG 414 since the EB days and had a chance to sing on a commercial and the engineer trotted out a 414XLII. Sent it straight through Audient preamp and it was one of the best tracks I've done in a long while. The early ones were great on acoustic guitar but a little bright on my voice but this setup worked and I'm picking one up after work tonight. Got to stop reading and just try for myself.

Sure, I'll get around to it at some point.. I'm going to post a set of comparisons including the GZ67FET and ISK 2B.
