MIC WARS 2 | RODE PROCASTER vs. SHURE SM7B w/Bass Roll-off & Presence Boost
In this corner we have the Rode Procaster broadcast quality dynamic microphone. It has a frequency response of 75Hz to 18KHz and a price tag of $230
And in this corner we have the legendary Shure SM7b dynamic microphone. It has a frequency response of 50Hz to 20KHz and a price tag of $400.
The SM7b has a flat frequency response, but it also has two switches to engage a bass roll off and a mid-range or presence boost. We will test every possible combination in this battle.
Both of these dynamic microphones require a lot of gain! A minimum of 60db. So we will use a Cloudlifter CL-2 as our mic preamp.
In this battle I will read “Annabel Lee” by Edgar Allan Poe and seamlessly switch between the microphones.
Who will win this epic battle?
Rode vs. Shure, dynamic vs dynamic, TITAN VS. TITAN!
