Blue Microphones Reactor Review

Reactor's Studio The launch of the Spark, which we had the opportunity to review here, generated a lot of excitement. But Blue Microphones shows no intention of stopping there and has introduced a new microphone with a quite... different look?! Reactor enriches the product range of the US brand while staying faithful to the philosophy of offering affordable, but original products. Let's dig into the details. read more…

Blue Microphones Spark Review

The Mic that Sparks Interest The American manufacturer Blue Microphones — famous for its emblematic Bottle — decided several years ago to extend its products range by offering more accessible microphones with the same reliable manufacturing quality. Today, the brand reaffirms its ambition and launches the Spark, a condenser microphone that redefines the down-market mics, both for Blue and its competitors. Will it sparks things off? read more…

What a find. (Oktava - MK-219)

By ikeena, 10/05/2018
I use this for voice over, live performance and studio applications. I did not compare the MK-219 with other microphones. I found this with stand and cable at a Goodwill Store. I was surprised when I saw it. I saw the price and thought somebody was kidding or had set up a sting. The MK-219 will pick-up the slightest sound so if you want a clean recording, don't record in public. I have used it to mic a video set and direct to a video camera (via slr). Versatile, solid. Phantom power can be problematic. The best $45 I have ever spent.

Excellent for Recording Vocals Until... (Sterling Audio - ST51)

By D Aasiya-Bey, 19/01/2019
I used this mic to record vocals and it initially gave a nice quality sound that was warm and clear. After a few months of using the mic, it started making a crackling and static sound that would come and go intermittently. I thought it might have been the cable so I purchased a high quality cable but the problem continued. I have had to do recordings with hopes that the static sound would not return while singing was occurring. I have had to redo vocal tracks due to the static sound manifesting during a recording and now the mic does not work at all.
It's unfortunate that a mic with such an excellent build quality that initially generated a top notch sound no longer works. Lastly, this mic was in a stable environment (home studio) and handled with care.

Here are some successful recordings that I did with the mic before it stopped working (all vocals were done using this mic).

Neumann TLM 103 works beautifully on acoustic guitars (Neumann - TLM 103)

By bainmack, 02/06/2019
Hello curious wanderer,
Owned and used a Neumann TLM 103 for about a year now.
I've paired it with various preamps including a LA-610 mKII.
Primarily used w/ acoustic guitars and vocals.
There does tend to be a lot of artifacts when using this mic at close sources -- these artifacts i have not experienced with other mics and concluded that the microphone is causing the problem. These 'artifacts' are distortion in nature of the source and tend to be difficult to edit out or make EQ correction. That's why I only give this a 4 star instead of 5 star review.

BUT, like always, take every review with a grain of salt.
You can hear it paired w/ other microphones here:
