AKG C414B ULS

c414

AKG C414B ULS microphone.

This is the only microphone I own and I use it for all my vocals and occassionally recording ambient sounds and percussion/handclaps etc.

I'm no expert but it sounds pretty good to me, I usually use lots of compression and add a lot of treble. It's quite a dark sounding microphone and to get the amount of air I want involves quite a large treble boost on the desk, which can lead to sibilance problems.


EXAMPLE SOUNDS

C414 - my skilful kalimba playing.
