What a great article on the trusty 414. The first line is great "... One of the most important and misunderstood microphones of all time" Exactly what I was thinking when I posted this thread. It's used it for so much else, why not a vocal mic? It actually turned out great. I did not have to bump up...

Well you've got a good point. Lots of talented artists attempt to save some bucks by doing it on their own or as much as possible. But people are deciding on what they can do at home and what they need to do in a studio. Almost everyone comes in with sessions that they either need touching up or add...

You know everybody with a computer is a producer, film maker, graphic artist, or whatever. The only thing that keeps nagging me is that my next song that I spent hours, days agonizing over and picking over every bit, chances are getting better every day that someone is going to come along and say, t...

The 414 has come in 2 flavors for years. The B/ULS and the TLII (tuned for vocals) were the instrument and vocal versions of this mic in the 1990s. Seems like they have continued this trend with the newer versions of the 414 as well. Jeff Yes that's along the line of what I was thinking. Putting up...

Oops it's an XLII. Not anXLS. sorry, doh! I broke out the paperwork that came with it. There is a slight bump at 3k then another at 6k. it's supposed to sound like a C12. But I can't compare with an a/b. Thanks guys, feeling better now. I would hate to have him record then listen back to something n...

Great! Good to know. I was a bit nervous for some reason. So far for me, an SM7b and 441 were fine, but now I have someone else interested doing vocs, so I was thinking 414, why not? At the studio I help out in, I have never seen those 414's come out of the locker for vocals because of all those gre...

414 for voc OK?

Until I stuff the cookie jar enough for something else, the only LDC that I have is an AKG 414. I use it for OH, room, in front of amps, but do any of you guys use actually that for Voc's? This is a 414 XLS. I think it sounds ok, and the pattern selection is great. I'll send it through a UA 6176 int...
