My new Rode NT1a

For a number of weeks I have been reading this board and learning about different microphones and preamps and good fun stuff like that. I even posted a few questions about doing V/O and narration. Well, Friday I went to an audio shop in Atlanta (a GREAT place for audio stuff) and bought the Rode NT1a and all the other fun stuff, preamp, pop filter, stand, etc. Well, was it worth it? Damn right. I love this new sound. It has changed my entire production. It has doubled the quaility of my work. Douglas, you were right. Audio is 70% of what you see. Thanks to all of you for your help. Bob

I use the NT1A for some of the VO work in my ads, and I was equally as happy with the results. I think you will continue to enjoy that mic (and it was such a good price, wasn't it?). Bryan and Matt and some of the others here were a huge help in pointing me in the direction of the NT1A -- Rode should be paying some sort of commission!

You can hear it in use at in the Schlotzsky's ad and the Foundy Park Inn ad (as well as some of the others). I record in my home office, through an inexpensive Tapco mixer (w/ phantom power), and it still sounds good -- although it has a lot to do with the vocal quality of the folks I record, of course.

By the way, which store in Atlanta are you raving about?
