Aston Origin

What type and size you need, and where you should point it. Does a large diaphragm do a better job in preventing pregnancy than a small? WTF is phantom power and why do you need it? All these important questions and more, discussed within. Entendre at your own risk.

Aston Origin

Post by musicturtle » Sat Jan 27, 2018 2:24 pm

Bought this mic last summer for about $250 new. Have done some voice overs and a few vocals through it and I have to say I am pleased so far, although the mic I was replacing was what came in the Focusrite Scarlett package(not really a heavy hitter I know). Just wondering if anyone else used it and what their feeling were.

I've not used one but I'm curious about them. I have a bunch of mics already but, like a dumb ass, I'm always looking for other toys.

I almost bought one for $100 off of Facebook but the dude flaked out on me. They have a great reputation, but I've never used one.

I have the Focusrite package mic which is ever so so so - mind it was an upgrade from the Berhinger B1. I up graded further to a Audiotechnica AT2020 which, in hindsight, (bad pun or what?), was/is/will be unnecessary as I've only recorded my voice with it and a pencil is more than adequate to record my voice.

My mate (who collaborates on my Savant Syndrome stuff) runs a semi-pro small studio and he has one of the Astons - not sure which model, though. He rates it highly.

It's not as good as the next model up, the Martin...

Missed this thread until now. My vocals are often recorded through a Focusrite Scarlett (CM2?) mic. Would be interested in an upgrade at some point.
Although I often use a SM57 or an i5 too.
