  • Steve,

    Are you looking for a way of connecting a non-USB mic to the pc - or some way to add USB ports to system that's run out of ports?

  • Does anyone have a recommendation for a USB interface? Just need one mic to connect to my computer. Thanks!
  • Mike...I've been suggested by one of the foremost VO talents here (Ken Sparkes) to look at the NTG-3...currently I run an sE (Studio Engineering) "Mini" mic, which does the job formidably - but i'm also looking at the Rode for a 2nd mic and something to take with me on the road - and that doesn't need a lot of treatment, and I've heard the Rode is excellent for that. Thoughts, experiences ?
  • Yes...there is a Santa!!! Just got my new Avalon VT-737 10th Anniversary Edition preamp. Very nice sounding. Even cooler looking. Flat black with blue lights/LEDs. Very clean. So clean it's scary. Tossed in a Emphirical Labs EL8 DIstressor for added spice (if needed). BTW, the Rode NTG-2 and NTG-3 mics are great sounding. Not only through my new set-up but otherwise. I've got one for the road and one each studio.

  • I'd be running a 416 though it. So that's great.
  • I've been using the 416 from Sennheiser. I actually use a variety of mics, via the P-2...and since it's the same thing as the solo...albeit with one extra preamp...I'd say that you can use most anything ya like.

    The shotguns sound really nice through it...I've used large diaphragm condensers as well.

    Although, if I'm on the road, I'm probably not working in the most sonically forgiving environments ( hotel bed comforters make great voiceover booths! ), I almost always just travel with my shotgun mic.

    Recently, I've switched from the 416 to the NTG-3 from RODE. It's a GREAT mic. If you want to have your 416 at home, but don't want to shell out the bucks for a second one for the road...get yourself an NTG-3.

    They're virtually indistinguishable from one another in a side-by-side taste test.

    These days...I actually prefer the NTG-3 to the 416.

    Take care!

  • That's good news, because that one is very budget friendly compared to other big names. You're right it looks cool too (in pics). What mic are you running through it?
  • Ben,

    I've got the P-Solo for just that very purpose. It's great. I'm a big fan of the box. I bought it first, started using it on the road...and turned around and picked up the P-2 Analog for my home studio.

    I really can't speak highly enough about it. looking too!

    It beats the pants off just plugging your mic straight into an MBox or whatever your porta-recorder of choice is.

    Hope this helps!

  • Has anyone tried out the new Focusrite ISA One or the P-Solo from True? I'm wanting to add a portable pre-amp for "on the road".
  • Happy Holidays to you too, Todd.
    Congrats on the new mic and good luck on your vo success!!!!
