Welcome to my audio-blog!
Here I'll post shootouts, some personal audio-research and more. Studio-related stuff mostly.

Mics: C1, Mk-012 JJ mod, STC-2, M179, NT5

I've tested some new mics.

Up for test are these three LDs:
  • Sontronics STC-2
  • Studio Projects C1 JJ mod
  • CAD M179

and these two SDs:
  • Oktava MK-012 JJ mod
  • Røde NT5
Files here  (Gearslutz)

First impression:
C1 JJ mod seems very nice, rich bass (a little bump there maybe), balanced and nice
STC-2: A little thin, some hard hi-mid
M179: Nice and balanced
MK-012 JJ mod: Balanced, some more bass than the NT5
NT5: A little sharper than the MK-012


    1. Hey there - That c1 sounds awesome! for some reason all of the download links aren't working today. Do you know what capsule is in that c1?

    2. Sorry about the links. Server problem I believe. Seems ok now.
