Mic Madness with Warren Huart

Tuesday, August 22nd, 2017 | by

Warren of Produce Like A Pro invited me to do a Q&A session on Youtube Live, which he dubbed “Mic Madness with Matt McGlynn.” We went on for over 2 hours!

It was good fun, and we got into some detail about a number of things (but of course mostly about microphones!).

Here’s the recording:

Because several people have already asked: I used my go-to podcasting mic, the beyerdynamic M 99beyerdynamic M 99. That was my personal favorite from the Ultimate Podcasting Mic Shootout.

My studio isn’t really set up for video, so rather than drag my usual preamp, interface, and and outboard gear across the room I went super-simple on the audio chain: mic, Mackie USB interface, laptop.

Warren talked about doing another Mic Madness session. If you’d like us to, leave a request (or even a specific question) here or on the Youtube video.

    Awesome Mic Madness video! Simultaneously fascinating and informative. Always good to glean information about how different products differ and reasons behind manufacturing, etc., so more informed choices can be made. Thanks for your generosity to the community and I look forward to more!

    Hi Matthew
    I’m French / located in France, and I appreciate a lot your website, very helpful for me (especially images of the PCB / internal part of the mics), due to the fact I’m a mod’guys. This “mic madness video” part # # was very interesting, I took some notes and discover new brands I didn’t know.

    What I will appreciate about the next talk is :
    1) about CAD audio Equitek (M179, e60, e100s) ? (Sonic difference due to AOP vs FET. FYI, I have some)
    2) about Superlux products ? (eg : e241)
    3) about KickPad Earthwork ?
    4) about Transformer in some Dynamic mic (like Superlux, for having a more stabilized sonic vs Z input) ?
    5) This subject touch also sonic differences in Mic Preamp for Z input variation (like ART audio preamp)

    FYI : an European alternative for CloudLifter exist (less cost, more compact) : FetHead from TRITON Audio.

    Thanks and continue
