I知 sure this question has been posted in some fashion however I am just curious if anyone out here with experience can give me some practical steps to finding a solution to my problem. I am a rapper with a mid range voice, an aggressive type voice I will say and am looking for a vocal mic for my voice. My rap style is kind of border line yell aggressive very similar to eminem. I have been in a search for a microphone high and low and have read so many different opinions/articles on microphones. I have tested at least 10 different microphones, each microphone that I have tested has some sharp grainy frequency quality that in my subjective opinion is undesirable or some serious sibilance issue mostly around the f sounds which have produced a hollow nasal sound in my environment. I have also used micriphones that are just to warm almost foggy sounding. I would say that I am very critical about the sound that I知 after. I am recording through a presonus pre amp studio channel into a lexicon omega, real budget gear and use standard xlr cables. I record also with a pop screen about 3, 4 inches away. I understand room acoustics can play a role in the vocal recording however what I am hearing in my vocal is undesirable hi frequencies that break up my vocal instead of just giving a smooth solid clean vocal. Could it be my gear that I have is not up to par to get that professional sound that I知 looking for? I have been at this for months now and I知 curious if I just have to upgrade equipment. Mics that I have used have been in the $100-$600 price range. I have used both dynamics and condensers. List of mics tested, at 4040, akg c214, sm7b, mxl 69, blue bird, baby bottle, sm58 beta a, Samson C03, at 4047. akg c4000. It seems that each mic has responded better than others in regards to proximity effect and sibilance issues. I知 not knocking any mic here just looking for Insights, tips, suggestions would be appreciated!!
