Counterpoint: my personal experience has been the exact opposite. Swap sony and sennheiser and that's how I've found things to be.

I'm just a regular contrarian today, huh?

I need to chime in because these are recommended left and right - they sound okay, hardly flat, but there is a serious flaw - my click leaks through at any volume. It's made for some really miserable...

You're probably just saying off when you mean on or something, which confused him. If your ears say there's no hum, then there's no hum.

That's how that works if you want to use the line out. The next step up would be to switch to a real mic, in my opinion.

You export the individual pieces called "stems" (just the dry audio from each track with no effects) and send those to a studio in .wav format for them to mix.

Both of those are acceptable ways to do it. I use an amp, many people here use VSTs. Just use what works for you!

What you want is a compulsory mechanical license. You can get one from HFA.

1. Most places with two rooms were purpose-built and don't use stuff like foam. Most pro places use fiberglass instead of foam, I'll let someone else throw the book at you on this topic, though.

Heads Up on a Killer $95 Kick Mic

I just wanted to give y'all a heads up on a great budget kick mic, the Audio-Technica PRO25ax. It's part of their budget line, but it has similar guts to the ATM25 just in a smaller shell (I read...

Yeah, they're essentially the same thing, the SM58 is hardly a 'vocal' mic in the studio, but others here don't share that opinion with me.

Yep, that's along the lines of what I'm thinking as well. As long as you have phantom power on your interface, any cheap LDC will do you better than something based on an SM58 for studio vocals.
