Topic: Live Sound Question Large Diaphragm Condenser
Replies: 15
Views: 4483

Large diaphragm condensers of all polar patterns have been used in the live environment for decades, so the issue isn't the mic. Adding a gain stage (outboard pre) won't help, either - it's still going to pass through the FOH console's mic pre, so any benefit is lost. In fact, it may sound worse. Fo...

The Pro 37 is most definitely cardioid, NOT supercardioid.

My friend used an HR-16 for many years and did a lot of great stuff with it.

Then it burned down his house.

For the record, the 603 S is S ub-cardioid, not cardioid. jt Wow, not only did I not know that's what the "S" stood for, but I don't think I've ever heard "sub-cardioid"! I can't find anywhere that I'm seeing the 603S described as sub-cardioid, I only see cardioid, I'm surprised it isn't written th...

Really? So why doesn't this happen with any other mic I use on kick drum?

I don't think the D6 has any versatility at all. That thing has the most aggressive smile curve I've ever seen on a mic. Mega hyped lows, highs and almost no mids. It speaks one language: metal. I haven't found that to be the case, at all. In fact, I have had a D6 in front of, behind, inside, next ...

True stereo is very different from panned mono. Stereo sounds 3-dimensional because both sides of the image "hear" each sound differently (not just higher or lower in volume, but also delayed, revervbed, off-axis, etc.) just like your ears do. You can create a stereo image from mono sources by (for...

I'd like individual inputs for A, B & C. Sounds like you need a small mixer. One effects loop that can be used with A, B, & C; together or independent. A small mixer with at least one aux send.
