Sound Profiles and Noise Rejection
When you are venturing into being a content creator and care about sound well that’s just going to be another subject that’s deep and full of nuance. At this point because of where I live I knew I needed a dynamic microphone. What that offered me is better background noise rejection. In turn that means less work in post trying to get rid of unwanted noise.
Microphones can be expensive and because of that these two that I’m testing were purchased used with great discounts. They both do very well at what they are meant for. If they accomplished the goal then what was left? Being satisfied with how I sound. Everyone will sound different so its hard to determine if a mic will serve you well without first trying it out. I like both these mics but in the end they are no longer with me. The Rode Procaster was not a fit because it made my voice more nasally. And the Electro Voice RE320 while bright and crisp made me doubt if it was in 100% working condition. There is a point in the video where there is an audio glitch. Of course now I know that it could be for other reasons. My audio interface for one. But at the time I thought it would be best to just get rid of the mic while I could.
If I would have bought the RE320 new it would still probably be with me.
Curious on how they sound, take a look at the video.
