Whats a good mic that for VO work
on Mar 2, 2006 at 8:59:30 pm

Hi I am looking advice on a mic that is good for doing voice over work that will be recorded at different locations. Also our budget is not that grate so price is an issue. The mic will be plugged in to an M-Box that is recording to a apple G4.

I usually attract a dissenting comment or two when I post this info, but here I go again...

I own and use several expensive studio condenser microphones.

But here is a link to a Mic that simply will work great for VO work, choir and orchestra recording.
Its very sensitive with low noise, so it will work well for recording stage plays.
The price is $69.99 (yes, that's 1 cent under $60).
(Check back, it often goes on SALE for just $49.95 (almost FREE!)

I'm not kidding, this is a terrific mic. It requires Phantom Power to operate.
The standard phantom power is 48 volts, but I have easily run this mic on 12v to 20v phantom power from a battery-powered mixer.)
If you're looking at a Behringer mixer, they work great together.

A pair of these mics mounted in the right place can help you create a beautiful stereo recording.

This mic also sounds quite good on piano, string instruments and woodwinds.

Because it is very sensitive, it can be over-powered by the close-micing of percussion and some brass instruments.
There is another version (for a bit more money) that has a 10dB attenuator for use under LOUDER conditions.

Info on this mic has been posted on the COW many times and it ALWAYS gets surprised and grateful responses from those who buy it.

I got this one, AT-2020 which is designed for VO work and not so much for musical instruments.

Below the "ADD TO CART" button you'll see a MAKE-US-AN-OFFER button. They sell it for $99 but I offered $70 and got it for that.

Good company. I've purchased more stuff from them. He also found me a neat table stand with a small boom on it for a decent price. I love it.
