I’d love to be able to say I’ve tried my voice and my studio set up with the most popular, top industry microphones out there. I haven’t. And, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t curious. But I know when it sounds clean and accurate, and that’s what I want from my microphone — pure sound. I think I found that with the microphone I bought recently, the Shure SM7b. It’s a dynamic microphone which tend to be a little brighter and broader, a little more rugged and they travel well for voice actors who work on the road. It doesn’t require phantom power which again makes it a more attractive choice for on-the-go voice actors working from laptop DAWs.
It’s hard to test the accuracy with my own voice. After all, I only hear my true voice as it resonates from my head. Great. I just admitted I hear voices in my head. Hmmm.
