M-Audio Vocal Studio Producer

M-Audio music Producer microphone reviews

M-Audio isn't the first to make a USB mic: Blue Microphones makes a USB condenser model called the Snowball for roughly the same price. What makes the Session music producer different is its seamless integration with such popular software as M-Audio's Session and Apple's GarageBand. It also stands out for its ability to monitor the master output of the software while recording via a built-in headphone jack. This feature greatly reduces latency (noticeable and undesirable delay). On my tests, the Producer sounded good for a $100 mic. Those who have been toiling away with cheap Radio Shack mics as their primary recording option will find it both an ergonomic and audio-quality improvement.

The Producer looks like the archetypal modern condenser cardiod-pattern mic, with a metallic grill covering its capsule and overall dimensions of 9.5 by 2.8 by 7.75 inches (HWD). The body below the grill is blue, with a 3.5mm headphone jack towards the bottom of the front side, a blue power indicator behind the grill that lights up when the USB cable is plugged into a computer, and, of course, the USB connection where you would normally find the XLR connection. Like most condensers, M-Audio's new mic has some heft to it (3 pounds), which makes the tripod a bit less useful than it could be. For recording most vocals, you usually position the mic so it's more or less vertical, and this works perfectly with the tripod. If you plan to angle the mic on the floor to find a sweet spot for your guitar amp, however, be careful—its weight could topple the whole setup over (never a good thing for a delicate mic!). The good news is that the mic mount is removable from the tripod and will fit on standard mic stands. In other words, you should view the included tripod as pretty much a vocals-only option, and for that matter, desktop-only (given its approximate 7-inch height). Other accessories include a vinyl faux leather pouch, a USB cable, and software to install the driver for Session.

Pretty good

I'd call it the best camera for that price. I'd go for it.
FYI, Downsides are:
* Limited lens compatibility (no autofocus motor, so many Nikon lenses won't work)
* Autofocus is slow enough to be completely useless in live view mode (try it in a store)
* Video mode isn't up to par with Canon and friends. You get limited resolution, awkward frame rate, horrible audio (11kHz with low quality built-in microphone, and no microphone input, and the kit lens will give you lots of image stabilizer noise).
Stepping up, Canon 550D is an amazing camera (albeit without the pivot LCD)
