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

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

(this is a review of the PreSonus Eris E3.5 model)Good:- Sound is neutral- Very accurate sound stage- The 'acoustic tuning' it's called allows you to adjust for environment- aux in on front- professional look that isn't flashy and full of leds trying to call attention to itself.Cons:- Cables you get are pretty mediocre- Cabinet build

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.

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

The Focusrite Scarlett Solo is, quite simply, the ideal USB interface for recording the human voice or a single instrument. You could purchase a 2i2, but if you only need one input, why pay more? The solo is easy to use, has an excellent latency free headphone jack, and lets you get high quality audio from professional-grade

The brand new Akai Professional Mini MPK MKIII is absolutely amazing!

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. The only mics I own that are even close to this cost well over $1000.That's very important for people looking to do voice recording because the recording is clean and clear

The hype is real! I'd heard about the Stellar X2 back in September and that it was supposed to be every bit as good as a Neumann U87, and for a tiny fraction of the cost! I've never had the money to buy a U87 (which is over $3,000) so I've always used what I could afford. But when I finally got my Stellar X2 in the mail (shock mount

Look you have to understand that this is what it is... and that is a PART of a solution to minimalize the negative acoustic factors in a space (echoing, feedback, external noise.) That being said, I still utilize this in a walk-in closet where I allow the clothing to be a part of the solution. My testing certainly indicates that this

Sound absorbtion is great. Tried it out with a couple different mics. The stand is extremely durable. The only reason I gave it 3 stars, is because the "mic holder" won't securely stay supported and I can't attach a microphone to it safely. It seems I've gotten a different attachment piece than what is shown in the assemble

I LOVE this microphone. And even though I already loved it, it got 200% better when I got a boom arm that clamps the desk and puts the Snowball mic next to my face. Got a pop filter too.

I make YouTube videos and podcasts several times a week.

My company produces videos for corporations, weddings, and events.

This is the audio solution I'd been searching for for my YouTube videos. It's really an all-in-one device - a pocket or belt clip-sized recorder (for a separate wired lapel mic), a standalone microphone and a USB desktop microphone.

So, after many years of using FL's pirated version (straight back to Fruity Loops days) to finally owning a full license, I can say the feeling is exhilarating.
