    Sanken Cs-M1 new mike

    Has anyone here had a chance to listen to one (in person) yet? If so, what are your thoughts?

    Audix SCX1 HC and Sennheiser MKH 416 Audio Sample.

    Hi Eric. The mics were approximately 18" from my pie-hole. You can definitely hear the difference when listening on headphones. The Audix doesn't have the "bite" that the 416 does, but for the money, it sounds pretty good to me. I think it may work nicely on some of the more edgy sounding voices? For $300 used on Ebay, I couldn't pass it up. Don't tell my wife....
  5. Just to give you a sense of the difference in sound between the Audix SCX1 with hypercardioid capsule and the Sennheiser MKH 416. Recorded on a Sound Devices 633 in the same room, at the same distance and with the same gain settings. No additional processing has been done to the audio. I know, it's like comparing apples and oranges, but I thought it may be useful to someone? Listen to the audio sample on Soundcloud here!

    Sound Devices Mix Pre-3 and Mix Pre-6

    I'm wondering if a cable like this would work with a bds (using NP1's) to power one of the mix pres for bag work?

    Any Exciting New Lavs?

    The only thing that I'd like to change about it is the price... Thanks! I'll need to try the slim. I like the idea of the adapter system.

    Any Exciting New Lavs?

    Is there anything new in the world of lav mics that I should know about? I've had a hard time finding anything that I like better than the cos-11 (at least for my particular use).

    Repair MKH 416 P48

    Hello all, First off, I've done quite a bit of searching on these boards and have not come up with any definitive answers, so... Does anyone know of a reputable place where I might send an MKH 416 P48 for repair (besides Sennheiser)? This particular mic seems to be lacking a bit in the lower end and also has quite a bit of self noise. Thanks! Dave
