I have a video mic pro too. The new X version which I used here is in fact much better! The noise level of the original was fairly bad. The new one also has new and differently mounted bottles. Basically its an entirely different mic which is why it is also much more expensive. It is still an SLR model not a true studio device but punches way higher than you would expect.dagfinn wrote: ↑14 Feb 2020 09:27I'm surprised you think that mic and this setup sounds that good. I have Røde Stereo video mic Pro, and it's ok for it's purpose. It's a weak link, though. Also, when professionals mic up speakers, they do it in a very different way, to avoid ambience, for instance. There is really a loss of many musical/sonic elements, imaging, separation, dynamics and additions of lots of ambience in your method. The list goes on. Both channels of your mic can hear both speakeres at slightly different levels, so... crosstalk. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crosstalk#In_audio
Different mics, with different quality, properties and purposes - and ways of use to obtain different results. Recording sound the right way in high quality is a challenging task, and my ears is no longer TOL after many, many concerts and rehearsals at stupid levels without protection :( . Still I can hear lossy compression without problems, and really don't like it.
I'm here to learn, and perhaps return the favour, if I can, and to have good times with friends. You have a great system, enjoy it! Rickie Lee is on my top 5 list, and the track you shared a wonderful song... :D. I've been out of vinyl since The Magazine, and the album from your first video is now on my "must get" list, so thanks for that :D .
Its not a 4000 dollar neumann or AKG, but still a solid mid quality microphone.
