ISO Great starter stealth cards
« on: May 18, 2022, 08:47:28 PM »
Looking for some recs on a pair of cards for stealthing.

What I'm running now:

Have a pair of SP-CMC-2 (link below) that work good but I know there could be better. I have a pair of CA-14 omnis that sound great. I'd like to get his cards but he doesn't have any in stock and I'd like to get some ordered before some gigs in mid-June.

The primary rig I"m running those mics through is: mics > CA Ugly > PCM-A10.

What's a decent pair of mics that should be in stock and provide an upgrade for around $150-300.

The ones you have now (AT831)SP CMC 2 are really good and i'd say equivalent to others like CA-11.CA-14 , AT853,AT943 .. those are the other ones SP sells named SP CMC 4 (AT853) and SP CMC 8 (AT943).


I don't see there being any improvements there.


Better to improve your post processing techniques and recording location.


Got any samples of your recordings your unhappy with?

Not that I'm "unhappy" with any of my recordings. I just know my mics weren't too expensive ($150, I think) and thought some more expensive mics would mean better quality.

More expensive mics will result in better quality but the cost is quite a bit more for Schoeps, Neumanns, DPA's Microtech Gefells etc.  These are not generally considered starter mics.  Unless you are prepared to spend that level of money the previous suggestion applies.  I know a couple of tapers who have made the Schoeps upgrade recently and have been very happy but they also had the money available to buy what they wanted.
