    Advice for a novice

    I was hoping decent sound doesn’t take 7 years at university 😂 learning has been fun so far it’s a whole new science for me Rick I was looking at the sanken but can get the mkh50 and mkh416 for only an extra $400 over the cost of the sanken alone... having heard so many good things about the 416 I thought it may be good to invest in both eventually, as a long term creator + really appreciate all the professional feedback - thank you 🙏🏻

    Thanks again for the feedback seems like Its not worth getting the 416 from what everyone is saying - it’s either 2 hyper cardiods or 1 cardiod 🤔 I suppose i could hang some blankets up as well if that’s going to be a game changer.. I’ll let you know how I get on. When I bought the video mic pro I thought I would get good sound like magic... turns out it’s quite an art!

    Thanks for the feedback everyone - my main location is indoors, for 2 people it’s sitting still reasonably close together, my location for solo filming (that is mostly what I am currently doing) is in fairly bouncy surfaced room hence I was leaning toward the mkh50, but perhaps there’s a mic that covers 2 people close together nicely? My local dealer also has an offer on the mkh60 if that’s anything worth considering..

    Advice for a novice

    Hi everyone been reading this forum for a little while and thought to join up now to learn a bit more... im a novice creator trying to work out good sound and video for YouTube vids (at the moment indoor and just 1 person), audiobooks and podcasting. I just got myself a mix pre3 and am now shopping for a one for all mic solution to upgrade from the rode videomic pro. So far the mkh50 seems like the go to option - nice bass and seems a good all rounder. Other mics I was considering where sanken cs3e, schoeps mini CMIT, schoeps mk41 (bit pricey though). There’s a good offer on the 416 locally but am of the understanding that is not the best mic out there anymore so willing to put a bit more down for something that I be happy to use for the long term. My other thoughts where for use of putting 1 mic between 2 people sitting close, I have 1 Sony uwp set allready so maybe it’s better to get another when it comes to 2 people... Anyhow pointers and advice much appreciated... ps if anyone knows a good thread on learning how to use a mixer/ recorder would be much appreciated - took me half an hour to work out how to get any sound through it!
