Sweetwater Advice

  • Ashton Vaudt

    The AKG C414XLS has been a saving grace in my studio. The best way I can describe it is that once I started using it, so many sources instantly sat better in my mixes. I can put it in front of vocals, guitars of all kinds, drums, percussion, strings... no problem! The C414XLS can handle it all!

    Solid Mic

    Compared this to my brothers Neumann tlm 103 it doesn't have the same boost in the high end but it seemed very accurate and it didn't feel like there was anything missing from that range. Flipping through the different patterns there is quite a spread of different tones you can get out of the mic. I can tell this will be a mic that I hold on to for a long time.

    My Top Choice by AKG

    I got this mic a little over 6 months ago. I already owned a C214 and a C414B-XLII. My first run through it was kinda blah.
    2nd session in I started working through the polar patterns and WOW! Out of all my mics - this mic is flat but has life and makes those beautiful radio sounding vox if you spend the time on your tracks!
    I tend to go for this mic when wanting to produce a very upfront clear - defined vocal line.
    The extra - intermediate polar patterns make a world of difference.
    Im very tempted to buy the current XLII version of it and see if these extra polar patterns make the difference on that mic as well!
