AT2005 Mic Demonstration

Post by Zandrax » Sun Apr 09, 2017 9:44 pm

I figured I'd demonstrate that the AT2005 mic is a great starting microphone. I am linking two sound clips.

The first is the raw (albeit converted to MP3) sound file with no processing or compression

http://geekvilleradio.com/podcasts/geek ... 05Test.mp3

The second is after compression and normalizing in Audacity

http://geekvilleradio.com/podcasts/geek ... ressed.mp3

It really is just a mic and Audacity, you can work wonders with just a decent microphone.

And yes I was channeling my inner Stephen Jondrew with the test format :D

Great sounding microphone. I think raw or processed/compression gets the job done really well.

I have not yet had a chance to listen to these clips but I will say that the Audio Technica AT2005 / Audio Technica ATR-2100 / Samson Q2U / Knox Podcasting Microphone are THE starting microphone(s) to get. The combo USB and XLR capabilities and the great sound make these microphones the best hands-down for someone starting out. I'd probably first use mine via USB then graduate to an Audio Interface / USB mixer eventually. I wish I would have known about them when I first started podcasting.

I use the AT2005 for my shows at home, on the road AND for my PA announcing -- it rocks as a PA mic, too.
