MIC WARS 2 | ASTON STEALTH vs. RODE PROCASTER
In this corner we have the Aston Stealth, large format broadcast and studio quality dynamic microphone. It has a frequency response of 20Hz to 20KHz and a price tag of $399
And in this corner we have the Rode Procaster studio and broadcast quality dynamic microphone. It has a frequency response of 75Hz to 18KHz and a price tag of $229
Both of these dynamic microphones require a lot of gain! The Aston Stealth has a built-in pre-amp that gives you an extra 40-50db of gain. You turn it on with Phantom Power. For the Rode Procaster, I will use the Cloudlifter mic pre-amp.
In this battle I will read, “For Annie” by Edgar Allan Poe and seamlessly switch between the microphones.
Which of these microphones will take the prize? Which of these brutal beasts will destroy their foe? Who survives round 2…?
THE MIC WAR!
Once the MIC WAR begins, the microphone or audio track you see on-screen is the microphone you are hearing.
