Great Broadcast vocal mic
by Patrick from FloridaThis is a great mic for the price. Well worth the money and can fit most podcasters budgets. I disagree with the last review, this mic doesn't need "A LOT of gain" if you have a good interface. Cheap ... read more [+]interfaces like the M-Audio Fast Track series don't have great preamp circuits and as a result need more gain on the signal. So if you are planing on getting this mic with a $70 interface you can expect lower quality, over gained results. However if you put this through a decent interface of a similar level of quality then you will be very happy with the results. I have used this on a Presonus FireStudio as well as a Mbox2 Pro with no need to crank the gain up. I was also lucky enough to have the opportunity to use this on a Presonus ADL600 at a friends studio and was amazed at how clear and accurate the mic was on a higher end Tube Preamp. Moral of the story, don't sell yourself short by getting this and a cheap interface. You would be better served by the Rode Podcaster if your budget is $300 for mic and interface. Get a good interface and the Rode Procaster and be happy! close [-]

Great mic for Podcasting, broadcasting and training videos, but needs lots of gain!
by David from Ashland, Oregonthis is a a great mic for voice recording. It does an amazing job of rejecting side and back ground noise. The only problem is that it requires A LOT of gain to get a usable signal into the computer... read more [+]. I've paired it with an ART TupeMP with USB. I have to set the gain to max, add the additional 20db of boost and then set the output to 90%! But, when I do the sound is amazing. I have a dull voice normally, but this combination brings my voice way out in front, adds definition, presence and clarity. Though, at that point there is a bit of noise and ambient bleed that a little broadband noise reduction clears away easily. I've tried a dozen condensers and lavalieres and the Procaster is by far the best for voicecasting into a computer in a not-so-perfect sound environment (noisy fans, traffic outside, etc.) It delivers what Rode claims. close [-]

The Rode Procaster is my new favorite microphone for heavy metal and rock vocals. I was very happy with the way the Procaster handled all of the frequencies in my voice and it really cut through a mix that contained synths, heavy guitar, bass, and drums. Designed for broadcast, great for metal!
