Hello Craig,

A (very) little absorption on the deaf side of any mic is not enough to overcome a bad acoustic environment except on CSI.

Thanks Ty. Comes in at $700. cool.

Can you recommend a portable sound booth of some kind or does this really take a room designed for this purpose?

Also if we were to use the TLM102 directly into an editing program will the mixpre-d do the trick. I know it can provide the phantom power required.

Also would you advise a thrid party shock mount or does the stand mount that comes with it do the trick?

Craig,

Do you really need a booth? Tell us about what's going on at your place.

Suspension mounts are important if you have a lot of structure born vibrations. If you don't have that, you should be oK without one.

Mix PreD will work. You might want a pop filter.

Regards,

Ty Ford

The video production class shoots a variety of short form videos, some of which require a voice over added in post. It is rare that we can record anything isolated from group noise. I have 4-5 production teams per class. This just looked like it was possible to block some of the surrounding environment.

Craig,

That line from Dirty Harry comes to mind. Do Ya Feel Lucky? Well, Do Ya?

I have no way of knowing what you deem acceptable. While it will block SOME direct sound. I doubt it will be enough. Blocking sound like this from the rear of a directional mics really doesn't buy you much.

I've never used a PVB, but our VO booth uses their bass traps which are excellent.

If you are having problems with picking up too much noise from round the room you may want to consider the Shure sm7b as a VO mic. They don't have a lot of gain and so require a good quite preamp with plenty of usable gain, but they have the advantage of allowing you to get really close to the capsule. If proximity effect is likely to be a problem, the ElectroVoice RE20 is another possibility as it has virtually no proximity effect ( ie: it doesn't sound bassier the closer you get to it). Both are dynamic mics and require no +48. Both of these mics have a long history as broadcast announcer mics and are well under your $1000 figure, which means you have some money left over for sound treatment in the room.
Well acoustically treated recording spaces make a world of differencre to the outcome v untreated spaces.
