This condensor microphone is awesome!! I got it along with the M-Audio MobilePre USB preamp audio interface. With the two, I can get some really professional sounding recordings. I highly recommend this microphone for ANYONE.
Working with audio is a bit like learning to ride a bike; you never want to learn to ride by jumping right onto a Harley and you never want to jump into audio work with expensive and highly technical equipment. Think of this mic as your first bike...with or without training wheels. It's a mic to have fun with and learn how to record. This mic has served me well in that respect. Once you understand how it sounds and how it records your voice/instrument, you will begin hearing and understanding the mic's limits and capabilities; knowing this will help you in choosing your next mic...whether you need more warmth/depth or clear sterling headroom for high frequencies. This mic will help you understand what you and your instrument need in a mic.Because this is a beginners mic, you get a relatively flat line frequency...not much headroom for high pitches and not much bottom end for the lower frequencies. But this does not mean you're not getting great audio, but it does mean you have to work at it and experiment a little with mic placement, room sounds, and EQ...it forces you to be creative, which will lead you to learn a lot more about audio and recording than you would learn from more expensive condenser microphones.
The primary reason I purchased this mic was for voice recording. I am an animator and got the mic for doing character voice over and sound effects for my home studio. Today I recorded some guitar and was quiet impressed with the clairity of the recording. Just like any condenser just let it warm up for about 10 minutes or so then have fun. Recorded from a fender 100w amp about 3 feet away and was amazed. For the money, well worth it. Digital Reference is made by Audio Technica so the products are good. Again, overall I am pleased with the mic and the recordings that I am getting with it. If you want a good starter mic, you can't go wrong with this.
