- The Microphone Presets includes a sharp low-cut filter, keeping only that part of the audio spectrum where the microphone is useful. Using the microphone with this preset minimizes bass regeneration. The microphone presets were developed for close microphone use (“eat the mic”), which is the best way to optimize your vocal signal for tone and gain before feedback.
- About the presets: No mic that I know of sounds good for close vocal, even for recording for that matter. All our vocal microphone presets compensate for this. A lot of these mics sound a lot more natural when you back off a foot or so from them. Of course, this is true in the studio too. No one does this for a live performance (backs very far off the mic) since you want to maximize gain before feedback by eating the mic. And so then you get funny sound and so then you need our presets to make it natural.
