I recently heard that the EV-757 was the best mic ever made for vocals. What compares to it or even surpasses it in the new line of EV mics? Also, are the new ones American made like the old ones?

Don't know if I'd go that far. Microphones (like other gear) has specific design characteristics. The EV757 is a great mic and is best suited for female vocals (or Art Garfunkle). I paid $190 in the early 90's ($390 retail). I like dynamic mics for their ruggedness and no ned for phantom power. A condenser mic like a Neumann U87 cost $3,000 but faithfully reproduces. "Best" can only be used in conjunctioon with "for a particular purpose"

Eq for male vocal mic on mackie 1604 vlz3


There is no easy answer to this. It will depend on the mic, the speakers and the singer and genre amongst many other things. It will also probably be room dependent too although the overall eq should be able to take this out of the equation to a large extent.
Your best bet is to get someone to sweep the frequency on the mid range with a bit of positive and then a bit of negative eq to find where most affects your vocals then fine tune to your liking. Are you using a bit of reverb/chorus/echo as his can often, when used sparingly, enhance even a good singer. The biggest difference you'll probably find is from using different mics. The ubiquitous SM58 does not suit everyone but is robust, warm and forgiving but if you're after a more pure sound there are many more accurate mics you can try.

Make sure the switch is set to "mic/line" and not "guitar"
Your input level will be set by the "input L" or "input R" knob, depending on which side you are using. Start with them all the way down and then sing into the mic, turning them up until you get a signal about halfway up the bar in Cubase. That should give you plenty of headroom for clean vocals.
It may be difficult to get a good sound if you have one of those cheap mics that has a "1/4" jack instead of a 3-pin XLR jack. You might want to go to your local music/pro audio store and invest in a "condenser" microphone, which is good for vocals in the studio.

How can I get a professional sound out of my vocals; what I'm trying to say is how do I edit my vocals to get that studio effect or what ever, like all of that panning and equalizing business and so...


first, you need a hugh quality studio mic or a seinheiser, sure sm 58s and cheaper mics sould muffled compared to real studio mics.

whatever mic you have, the key to the studio sound os overtracking. record your vocals, singing exactly the same, 2 times, and pan 1 take to the right, and another to the left. this will give it as chorus effect.

then, use an eq to drop everything below 500 hertz about 20 decibels or so, thios will make it cut above the pusic and sound clearer.
after this, you can add effects such as delay, reverb and maybe chorus, but too much effects will muddy the sound.

I get a quiet signal when using the mic.


Hi,

You should use the mic input of your computer.
If it's not there, use a microphone pre-amplifier.

Tascam DP-02cf


You've got two inputs on the DP-02 so you can record two sources at once.

Depending on how you want the electric guitar recorded (mic the amp, or direct line in) you can in the first case plug your guitar mic into one of the mic inputs on DP02 and plug your vocal mic into the other mic input. You also have the option of plugging the guitar directly into the DP02 (using the hi-z input - I believe it is labelled 'guitar' or something on the DP02. I any event I believe it's the one on the left). This way you only need one mic for use recording the vocal part.

To avoid any 'bleed' between channels you can use the headphones while recording this way and you'll avoid having the unamplified guitar sound coming through over the vocal mic.

Once you have the mics or guitar and mic plugged into two inputs, you need to assign the inputs to a channel (track) to record on. You do this by pressing the select button for the input and then pressing the select button for the track where you want to record the input. Do this for both inputs so that they are recording on different tracks. Then arm the tracks for recording by pressing the record button for each track and the lighted buttons will flash above each armed track. Then just press play and record and you'll be recording. You can go back and redo it as many times as you like and record over what is there, or preserve a take and assign a new track (or tracks) for another take. You've got 8 to play with.

Hope this helps.

MXL 990 has really low output


These are really cheap mics! I have two dozen of them because what I do requires the mic to be expendable. The capsule is pretty fragile and just a little drop or hit to the mic can drastically alter the frequency response and output level. If you record with it and it has a hollow sound I would bet this is what happened. If you can generate white or pink noise out of your system, then record it. Just hold the mic in front of the speaker. Play it back and compare the tone of the recording to what you just heard. Hollow? There you are!

Can not record vocal and guitar at the same time


The monitoring switch should not affect the recording at all. Maybe you have a defective mic?

Does it record from the line input if you set it to Line In mode?

Vocal problem


hi there..if there is video and background audio coming out from the TV, and no voice recognition from the mic- then mic is the problem. I believed the problem is the "voice coil". This is a part that can be replaced- you can contact me and we can repair that.

two ways to check
remove the mic ball
the part which the mic ball is is covering is the voice coil.
try holding both terminals (black and white wire)- if there is feedback sound- it is open and need to be replaced
try using your tester- test the impedance- there should be 500- 600 ohms reading
