I'm a musician/singer/songwriter and produce/engineer my own music with 3 album releases, yet being independent I have no claim to commercial funding so every piece of equipment I buy is a precious investment. I bought my SM7B after much research and have done numerous audio tests in my studio, with some preliminary recordings for a

I had been looking at this mic for a couple years to upgrade from my Shure SM58. Finally pulled the trigger and bought, right away I did a shootout of the SM7B vs the SM58. Obviously I knew there was going to be a difference in the sound quality, but I wanted to test exactly how much. This Mic has a really great response and it’s

By AL Arsenault
To be clear, this is not a BAD microphone. It's also not a GREAT microphone. It's...fine. Most voices through the SM7B will sound articulated, clear, thin, slightly nasal, and utterly bland. Also, be aware that this is not a plug-and-play mic. For podcasts or voiceover you're going to need to spend a significant amount of time in

Summary:The 2i2 3rd Gen is a solid advancement to the product line. Generation III helps this brand to remain at the forefront of audio interfaces. I had sold a previous interface and found myself in a pinch where I needed to get something recorded and produced within 48 hours. I found myself with a 2i2 3rd Gen and it was perfect.Good

I play guitar in my spare time and don't know the first thing about getting set up with a DAW or the logistics of recording my music or even getting it to play through my headphones. Other approaches I've seen have been extremely confusing, intimidating, and finicky to someone like me who knows nothing about the correct gear for this

We use these for a community radio station, and has used the 1st and 2nd gen 2i2s for years without problems. They fail after 2-3 years of 24x7 use, but that seems reasonable.However, the 3rd gen switches to a USB C connector with lightning, which requires a separate driver. In order to deliver this driver, the interface shows as a USB

This is a video review for the Quadcast. General pros and cons will go here:Pros:+ Very intuitive mute/unmute system, convenient gain control dial+ Warmer sound, but overall has a good balance to sound natural+ Four polar patterns to choose from, which is handy for things other than gaming+ Build quality looks solid but still is quite

I have owned many many mics ranging from the snowball to the AT20200 XLR. I just replaced my Blue Yeti with the Quadcast and immediately fell in love.

I use these headphones for PC gaming. I recently switched to these from "gaming" branded headphones, and the difference is mind blowing.

Before going into the details of the review it's important to point out that these speakers are actually designed as "near-field" monitors, not home-audio loudspeakers. I've seen a handful of complaints about lack of bass reponse, hollow sound etc.Near-field monitors are designed to reproduce sound with a *flat* response to give

Stopped working within two days. They sounded great and worked fine up until then.. I went outside for an hour and left them on. When I came back in I heard a rustling noise upstairs. It was the passive monitor. Turn on some music and find the passive monitor doesn't work period. Mind they were working just fine before I left the room.

This mic was so much better than I expected from a USB device. So much so, I felt compelled to create a short 6.5 minute video review. I used the mic to record the audio in this review and hope that the quality sound helps you in your search for a mic that delivers way above it's price break. BTW - I suggest you plug in some good

This is Shure trying to bait people into buying what they think is a slimmed down SM7B that they see everyone using for $250.

The size of the mic is great, it looks nice, and the stand is very nice. Audio quality is really good especially when you tweak it a bit in post. I've included some sample audio without and then with noise removal. I'll most likely be switching from a blue spark and audio interface to just this as the audio is good enough and I don't

Fantastic microphone for recording and podcasting. I've used a borrowed Yeti for a couple years and it was amazing.

This Tonor TC30 mic has exceeded my expectations! You simply plug it into a USB port and it’s ready to use. The pop filter screen is a nice addition to cut down on unwanted sounds in your recordings. I love it’s small size so it doesn’t take up too much room. It has a tripod and a knob where you can adjust the angle of the mic.

Very good case for the Akai MPK Mini. It is not super rigid so I would not recommend putting this in airplane luggage on it's own. But due to it's form factor it fits really nicely into a bigger suitcase. The padding is quite nice and the case seems to be very well put together.

This microphone is perfect for studio use because in addition to having a clear, natural warm tone, it's super quiet. The self-noise / noise floor is super low.
