Which microphone should I be using?

Excellent question.  There are so many microphones in the market today for so many different uses.   Without boring you to tears on the aspects of each kind, let me just cut to the chase on which is best for you in the studio.

Every sound engineer would agree that you MUST have a large diaphragm mic to record with if you want to get every little sound.  The difference?  Night and Day. Large diaphragm mics are built to pick up the lightest sound and still be able to handle the harshest.

If you are going to do voice-over work, or recording vocalists and instruments, the large diaphragm is the way to go.  I recommend a microphone with that has at large a once inch diaphragm.

The AT-4040 has proven to be a workhorse for me in my studio for every aspect of the genre. I use this microphone for all my recording into Soundtrack Pro 2 and it works excellent.  Any one working in music or video production that wants quality for their audio, this mic is for  you.
