Mike Bratton commented on Beau Weaver's group 'Tech Notes for Voice Talent'
"No problem... If you're mixing in headphones, and I don't recommend it unless you have to, the K240s are really, REALLY good for that. The 7506 cans will bleed, but you have to have 'em CRANKED to make that happen...so, hopefully…"

"Dan, I have several pairs of the Sony 7506 headphones...have been using them for years and years...most studios I go into have them, or the AKG K240 (but I don't see them as often ). Both are excellent in terms of sound reproduction. The K240s…"

"Ed, Just taking a peek at the tech docs for the 003 family, and it looks like the SPDIF I/O can handle 96k/24bit audio...that should be a bit of good news. 003 Racks have been going pretty cheap lately...well, relatively cheap anyway. Good…"

Thank you for your thorough response. Your comments are very helpful.

 

I am thinking that to get the most out of the 103, I need to understand EQ and maybe compression a better, rather than trying to buy more expensive mics.   

But let me ask you, when you finally got the U87 was it worth it?  

Thanks again for taking the time to answer Alexis and I really appreciate it.

Hi,
This Alexis's dad Rob. Thanks for writing back.
I was thinking of replacing my TLM103 with a 49, and I wanted your thoughts.  I was in a rush because there was a sale yesterday at Guitar Center. The only unit they had was dented and scratched so I passed. 
Also I noticed you use a Rode NTG3, I was thinking about that as well and wanted to see what you thought of it. 
Thank you.

Thanks for your advice on the NTG-3, Mike! I still have not pulled the trigger, so your advice is still timely. It's still between the 416, NTG-3, or a Sanken CS-1. I'm not in a hurry at this point, looking at 2010 for this purchase. BTW, I noticed in the comments section of the youtube vid that one VO claimed that the 416 "cuts through" a lot better than the NTG-3. I'm not sure I agree from hearing the raw video, I wonder how they'd sound behind music. The main reason I'm considering a shotgun type mic is for the ability to cut through a mix.

FYI, I just bought a Studio Projects CS5 for about $325, and so far I'm loving it. Another talent I respect says that he recently recorded on a CS5 from his home studio to update a tag he recorded for Disney, and it perfectly matched the U87 that was originally used. I also am getting in a Mike Joly-modded MXL 909 any day now that I am very curious to check out.

Anyhow, thanks for your reply, Mike! It definitely was not too late.

All the best,
Tom Test

Hey Mike,

How do you like your Rode NTG-3 vs the 416? I'm in the market for something like this. (Already have a TLM-103, Rode NTK w Amperex NOS tube and Shure SM-7B). I'd love to hear your thoughts.

All the best,
Tom Test

Thanks for your time! I trust our paths will cross soon!

Mike,
I saw that you were offering to sell your 416 and ship it in your NTG-3 case. How do the two mics compare for voiceover?
