Hi everyone. Happy New Year/ of the Tiger.
Thanks for the TLM 102 info, John. I've yet to hear any female voices in any of the samples -- and I have been scouting for them as well. Now that it is around I'm going to go try it out and I'm happy to report back. But like the times I have used the TLM 103, it was in a commercial studio with a skilled engineer so of course it sounded great. Would my Edirol UA 25EX be enough to do a 103 or 102 justice? And this is in a non-isolation booth home studio space. I would love to also hear what you all think about other mics (used or new) for a lower range female voice in a home studio environment. What are all you women using? Thanks.

Hi Gang,
Great to have so many resources on one site! Gear Heads seems like the group I've been searching for, to bounce opinions and recommendations on audio gear. There's so much stuff out there, and I've never felt comfortable asking a sales rep for his opinion on a piece of equipment. I'd rather get advice from real users, like you!
That said, I'm thinking of getting a Rode NTG-3 Mic. Heard that it rivals the Senn 416 on many levels. And it's considerably less expensive.
I'd love to hear from NTG3 owners and especially from people who've had the chance to compare the Rode to the Sennheiser MKH416. My use will be in my home studio for VOs.

Hi Everyone,
I got a nice email from Christopher Currier that contains some links to information about the TLM 102. Also there are links to reviews and audio samples below.

You can certainly share all of these links with the voiceover folks!

I saw where the TLM 102 won a PAR award (Pro Audio Review magazine) at the AES show. It said the mic was geared toward vocal applications.
More as it comes in.

Thanks John.

I saw an article in Mix magazine that only mentioned it. There should be some reviews coming out soon. If they do, I'll pass on the information.

Hello everyone -- I've been looking around and haven't seen any real reviews on the TLM102. Anyone have any info/ an opinion? Thanks!

Hey all-- I am building a new studio (got alot of work ahead!) and I got all my soundproofing supplies from ...owner Skip has been a dream and a wealth of information. If anyone ever needs any soundproofing supplies, these guys are AMAZING.I did alot of shopping around and research and I have been amazed at how much solid advice they gave me well before I made moves to buy anything.

Hi everyone - great to be part of the group!
I have just moved here from Australia, where I have been working for the last 10 years.
VERY different scenario there - I get ALL of my work through my agent and go into the studios.
I am not good with technology and have not had to record at home - this is all very new.
I am currently in the process of setting up my first basic home studio with the view to upgrade in the future.
Goals: I travel a lot for work, so the studio needs to be somewhat portable.
So - I have a MAC and an MBOX 2.
I was told that the Apogee Mini-Me would be a great pre-amp for my basic set-up whilst satisfying the portability requirements.
Problem....they seem to be hard to find these days....and I don't want to purchase off eBay.
Can anyone suggest a good vintage audio dealer where I might be able to pick up a well serviced used unit? Or other suggestions for how to pick one up?
Or suggest a good alternative with digital output, Phantom Power and XLR connectors.
The Focusrite ISA ONE was suggested to me - thoughts? A little too big...
Any advice that would bring me out of the dark would be greatly appreciated.
