    The talent behind it has a LOT to do with that sound as well

    Here is a more generic demo--

    Did I forget to mention the talent? My bad.

    The voice is first. The mic is second. The preamp is third.

    And having a good vocal producer helps a lot too.

    Come hear him here! (How's that for a hard sell?)

    Good demo. He forgot to mention that it takes LOTS of gain. For someone plugging into their Mbox, that might be a factor.

    "Amish" in the morning-----

    That cracked me up--

    (he actually says I-mishhh) instead of I Muus.

    More and more females (of the masculine type) tend to put the SH sound on the s or the z. Do you ever notice this? Greta is getting better, she used to be the SH queen (The teeth clinched clique)


    Also, gain is your friend, if it is of the very quiet type. Cheap mic pres (noisy) need not apply-

    How about this part of my post?



    Have you considered an SM7B?

    Here is a video with Massenburg using one---(the lead vx)

    I've been using them for years, with very good results...

    SM7B's are very inexpensive for their performance. It and the RE or PL20 EV's

    And now to get back on track

    Could I use the same technique with my tube LCD mics? They are variable pattern -- maybe at a setting somewhere between figure eight and cardioid? You know, something resembling a hypercordiod or super cardiod pattern?

    I'm thinking that maybe I can tighten up the pattern for better separation so the violin is not to hot in the vocals. Unfortunately, I still have to pay off the tubes and we don't have an SM7B.

    Here is what we do have in our mic drawer:

    2 Beta 58a
    2 SM 58
    2 PG 58
    2 Beta 57
    2 SM 81
    2 Rhode NT 5
    2 Behringer B1

    My Mics:

    1 Peluso 2247 LE
    2 sE Electronics Z5600a II

    Let's see what you top-shelf pros can do with a bar-shelf setup like this
