Love the audio scrolling downward next to the meters.  Like the old SSL Screen Sound or the mag dubbers before it!  Cool.

Had a question about sub $500 vocal mics in another thread. What I came up with is below, but what's your opinion ? any favorites ? 

-----

depends on what kind of vocal.

TL;DR - I like the bluebird and the 4050 in this range, but a solid preamp matters. If you can listen with your own preamp, in your own space, do it. 

IMHO:

Studio Projects C1 is a little bright, so male vocals that work the mic in a specific way are probably ok

Blue Bluebird has more rounded bottom end and a smoother mid, and works well for female vocalists and males that are "mic savvy"

TLM 102 is a good all 'rounder, but IMHO is a better instrument mic than a vocal mic. I have a U87 and the TLMs ( transformer-less) sound very different. 

Same with the C414 - the TL designs are ok, but not my favorite. 

AT4050 has a little presence bump, but sounds pretty darned good. 

If you are brave and can find a used one, Blue Woodpecker is an interesting ribbon for ~ 1k new, 6-700 used. 

in all cases, steady phantom and a good preamp will make a difference.

+1 to the SM7.  Also an RE20.  421s are sometimes great on vocals and are useful on everything else too.

And let us not forget the FatHead II.  Most people that don't like tracking vocals with ribbons (1) don't understand ribbons or (2) need a better EQ.  If you have an EQ with a flattering top end and aren't afraid to use it, you'll discover that the top end is silkier than any low-end condenser.

Notice something missing from my list of go-to mics under $500?  Condensers.  Thing is, as I've gotten better and better condensers, I mostly quit using my less expensive ones, but I always use my dynamics and my ribbons.  I think dynamics and ribbons are better studio investments than low-end condensers.

Also see Xiph.Org's new video, Digital Show & Tell, for detailed demonstrations of digital sampling in action on real equipment! Articles last month revealed that musician Neil Young and Apple's Steve Jobs discussed offering digital music downloads of 'uncompromised studio quality'.

It's a compelling argument within the context of a contentious topic, I must say. Given that I'm a hobbyist recording musician with inexpensive converters (Duet I) and inexpensive monitors in an untreated room, I'm going to stay at 24/44.1 for the time being. I do hope to ABX different sample rates in the near future, though.

Dan Lavry's paper is also quite interesting:
