Ease of Use
Best studio sound ever...
Your general opinion of this product.
Don't have a lot of studio experience, but I'm a 33 year full time performing professional. Got a great price on a V88, and it's simply the best vocal sound I've ever had in my studio. Plug and play, incredible sensitivity, I can hear nuances in my voice I've never heard.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Only had it for two days, but it appears well designed with a shock mount and comes with a case to protect the mic.
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
Just had to briefly view the manual to properly place the mic and power up with phantom power and I was singing in minutes...
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
Incredibly sensitive mic, picks up vocal nuance from three feet away, and I'll have to figure out a way to isolate my acoustic guitar, as it's blasting through the mic as well, almost overwhelming the vocal signal...
How is the tone?
After brief experimentation, very warm sounding, gets bigger and rounder as I get closer, signal is very crisp as well, very clean sounding mic
