Microphones - Studio Electronics SE X1

Post by kingrad » Tue Nov 01, 2011 9:27 am

Hi I am interested in getting a vocal mic for home studio. Mostly making techno related music so will probably pitch shift or vocode vocals/speak mostly. Can anyone recommend the SE X1. It gets advertised a lot in future music. How about the RODE NT1A or 2A. I don't want to spend heaps but it needs to be good enough for professional recording (at home). Also how important is the reflexion filter?

Thanks

IMO Rhode are good value for money and an Australian company.

I own several sE mics. ; great value and quality. I use the se2200a for all my vocals and amp recording.

Thanks to both of you for replying. They all sound like good microphones

On another point. Its amazing I can get a RODE mic on amazon in the USA substancially cheaper than I can here in Australia where they are made. Seems crazy to ship to USA and then buy back cheaper.
