The first thing that came to mind when I heard about the DR-20 Dynamic Microphone from Roland was, "Great! Just what we need is another mic!" Then I heard that Chuck, one of the owners of Sweetwater Sound had bought one for himself for live work - gee, he could have any mic he wanted. So I asked him: "What's the deal with this mic?"
The answer I got was, "It's a really great mic for not a lot of money." True, at just $150 retail, the DR-20 isn't going to put anyone in the poorhouse, but there had to be more.
After further investigation, I found out it not only sounds great on stage, but what is really amazing is when you plug it into the Roland VS-880 V-Xpanded digital multitrack (with effects expansion). Using the onboard mic simulator, you can actually "model" the DR-20 to closely emulate the sound of such classic condenser mics as a Neumann U-87 or Sennheiser MD421 thanks to COSM technology. Ah, mystery solved! It's not just another mic.
