    Default 3D Mic CD-Male Vocal Samples

    These files are from the 3D Mic CD, and feature a male vocalist singing through 49 different vocal mics, ranging from a Shure SM57 (under $100) to a Telefunken 251 (over $20,000). They allow the listener to hear how great an influence mic selection can have on the sound of a recording. These high-resolution recordings (originally recorded at 24-bit, 88.2 kHz, offered here at 16-bit/44.1 kHz) will allow you to audition the largest collection of vocal mics ever assembled on male voice. These recordings of male voice present each mic in a precisely calibrated setting so you can hear the differences for yourself in your studio on your monitors. Is one mic worth 200 times as much as another? You listen and decide for yourself. This download includes a the artwork from the CD book with pictures of the listening party, technical details of the testing, and the all-important key which identifies each mic. This is an invaluable resource for anyone who wants to learn more about microphones. 

    Produced by Lynn Fuston.

    At 46 cents to hear each mic, I think that's pretty darn reasonable. If you can audition a mic for less than that, then go for it. I would strongly encourage you to listen to them first hand instead of listening to my recordings second hand.

    PS: If you find a 251 or C12 or U47 that you can rent for 46 cents, I need the owner's name so I can rent it.
