MIC WARS | SHURE SM7B vs. RODE PROCASTER
In this corner is the legendary Shure SM7B. It’s been seen on countless podcasts and radio shows as well as in the studio to record vocals, narration, voice overs and instruments like guitar and bass. It has a frequency response of 50Hz to 20KHz, and a price tag of $400.
In this corner is the Rode Procaster. It’s also a large broadcast microphone that you have seen on many podcasts and used in plenty of YouTube videos. This mic also works well for metal vocals, voice over, narration, and recording guitar and bass. It has a frequency response of 75Hz to18KHz, and a price tag of $230.
Both of these microphones are end address, dynamic broadcast quality microphones, being dynamic mics, neither require phantom power.
Both of these microphones require a lot of gain, ideally a minimum of 60db. So we will be using the Cloudlifter mic preamp with both of these microphones.
Which of these Titans will take the title, which of these legends will prevail, dynamic vs dynamic, broadcast vs broadcast, legend vs. legend….
