Hello,

A few months ago I started a thread here asking for information about gear, mostly about a new hyper mic.

I received many and v helpful answers and advice which, together with some research mainly here, greatly helped me in buying the equipment i needed, even though some of them weren't on my list in the beginning. The microphone i chose was the Audix SCX1-HC, on which i found few comments and no sound samples, but since i always appreciated the brand i went for it. I have to admit that i am very satisfied with it. After completing 3 projects (feature length doc and 2 corporate videos) i can safely say that, imho, the mic has a very natural sound, with good detail, low sibilance, suitable both for male and female voices (amazing on acoustic guitar recordings too :) ). I am planning to make some test samples, when time permits it and share it here, so you can have a 'taste'. After many comments i decided to blow away my budget and went for an SD302.. and what a great buy was that! Sound quality aside (surely not much to comment here) i am truly amazed on how thoughtfully this device has been designed, allowing a fluid workflow and accounting for everything one would need at work. The booming pole also proved to be a great purchase, talking about the Ambient QX580, a very lightweight carbon fibre pole (bought on a great deal) with a stellar locking system.

So, reason for writing this is to thank everybody that participated in my thread and also all that comment on equipment and general queries here, your help to new professionals on the field and me in specific is greatly appreciated.

All the best

+1 for the Audix. Highly under rated modular mic. Very close to he sound of a Schoeps 641 at 25% of the cost.

The mic is 500 UK pounds here in the UK so I wondered what you were comparing it to at 25%of the price of an equivalent and in what situation would a documentary recordist use it.

Just curious Eric.

I bought one because I needed a good hyper that was small for tight spacesl. The price was so reasonable I also bought a cardiod capsule. I don't use it much anymore but it is a very good sounding mic and I'm glad I have it. Would make a good plant mic too.
