My at4050 for your at4047? To me, the AT4050 isn't the kind of mic you fall in love with-but more a really good, versatile workhorse. The Shure KSM-141 is a terrific mic and quite affordable, and for more money (a lot more), the Schoeps Mk5 capsule is world-class on any acoustic source. Having said that, I was very impressed by the shootout recording of the WA-87, and preferred it slightly over the 4050 for that voice. Hey there! Thanks for posting that. I'm hearing pretty much the same from my WA87. By up-fiddler in forum Recording Techniques Replies: 9 Last Post: 07-08-2010, 03:47. I would say sibilant. I have the 4050 and 4047. I agree that 414s capture a lot of room character, which didn't work for me in the end. Yep. Hey there! Just a friendly reminder that political discussion, (including "offhand" and 'sideways' commenting) is, Ok so I am about to buy one of these mics... has anybody tried all three? This is a good review of the Blueberry mic. I also agree the 4050 and the u87 are similar. Oh ok so nothing beats a SDC omni mic then? I bought the SM7B twice. I wanted to see how some of their microphones compared to their vintage counterparts. The AT is not bad but I still prefer the 414 B-ULS. Warm Audio WA-87 R2. I strongly suggest getting a proper Omni. It works on more sources and sounds like a record. When you buy products through links across our site, we may earn an affiliate commission. The folks at A-T sent one for review, and I have to say, I loved it from the get go. And after trying the Metallica trick of 4050 on a guitar cab, so good. Then I realized the U87ai is also an LDC type. Sounds like the 87 is bestest or the brighter 414. The condenser capsule is a center-terminated, externally-biased design. Surprised more are not talking about the Blue Blueberry. The same capsule in EB sounds darkish. I wanted to add "trimming away at the bottom" was in reference to vocals. http://www.mediafire.com/file/dnbrdk...t_4_inches.wav, http://www.mediafire.com/file/uvx59h...t_4_inches.wav, http://www.mediafire.com/file/qat6ac..._12_inches.wav, http://www.mediafire.com/file/ypkkho..._12_inches.wav, Warm Audio introduces WA-87 R2: Updated And Upgraded.

I can't say I have a mic in my locker that has a response curve like the WA87. LD dual diaphragm capsules in Omni have poor consistency off axis. I owned two U87s and one AT4050. C414s vary quite a bit model to model. B-ULS has only the new capsule which is duller, but very usefull too. Rather than base our WA-87 circuit on current incarnations of this mic, we decided to closely follow the early circuit designs that date back nearly half a century. I would love to hear from you. For stereo and certain vocals I like the 4050. I find nothing really needs to be added or subtracted on the top. If you are on a budget and want that sound I would definitely opt for the AT4050. Warm Audio’s WA-87 is one of the most popular inexpensive alternatives to a real U87. I have 2 AKG 414EB P48 mics. The WA87 is unique with it's bump at about 5K. I've owned both the U87ai and the AKG, but also used the AT4050. I have a lot of experience with the AT mics, and just got the WA87 a few days ago. Only sold the AT4050 because it was so similar to the U87 and clients always went for the Neumann name. Just a friendly reminder that political discussion, (including "offhand" and 'sideways' commenting) is. With the u87 being the sm7. There is a big difference with capsules, old brass one is very desirable with famous smooth bright sound. Hence the added presence. Audio-Technica's AT4050 performs with as little noise as possible -- its floating construction elements really isolate the microphone from environmental noise and vibration, so that when you sing or play into the AT4050, you hear your voice or instrument, and nothing … Also, I always feel that cardioid mics tend to highlight some part of the guitar more than others. The AT4040, on the other hand, is a real seductress. Much prefer it to the 4047 on any source, This is what I'm thinking my 4050 will be used for (as far as vocal duties go) from now on. While I do find them to be similiar sounding, I think the U87 is a little warmer in the lowmids, maybe due to the transformer. Regarding the 4050 vs the 4047, my personal opinion is the 4050 is the superior mic. Some vocalists it works great for as well. The AT4050 is fully featured, offering three selectable polar patterns (cardioid, figure-8, and omnidirectional), an 80Hz highpass filter to remove low-frequency rumble, and a -10dB pad for recording loud instruments. Maybe the Warm, I dunno. I would like to try omni pattern mics to see what they sound like. Small diaphragm I still use Sennheiser MKH without question. It has remained so popular throughout the past 15+ years that A-T has just released a limited-edition anniversary model, the AT4050/LE, with a beautiful commemorative metallic silver finish and a custom wooden storage case. But I wouldn't mind having an AT4050 on hand. "Oh ok so nothing beats a SDC omni mic then?". I took the files into my studio and listened. My first choice for cello. Complementary mics. For me, mostly some trimming away at the bottom. Warm Audio is a gear manufacturer that strives to emulate the sound quality of vintage high-end gear, but with a much smaller price tag. WOw, cool thread. Out of the 3, the 414 is my fav in Omni, but I haven't tried the current XLII or XLS, I can only vouch for the 414, 414E, EB, B-ULS and TL(-II). I'll also add that I've recorded vocals with the 4050 through a UA Solo 610 and thought they paired rather nicely. It's great on many things. I use it as a kick drum out mic, which it's just OK at. With a strategically placed sound absorber, I dig an 87 in omni for vocals even in my smallish room, though lately I've been getting into figure 8 of all things. The Neumann is completely beyond my reach, but the AT4050 is attainable. Michael Joly's MJE Hulk 990 is a better all rounder than any of your choices, and dirt cheap, yet no compromise is quality, at least compared to your stated options. I may have to look into that mic. Yes, similar in a way that both are microphones, yawn, but U87 and AT4050 are not showing resemblance in tonal characteristics. With that said, the 4050 is a great deal.

It's cardioid only, and like the AT4050, it has switches for … I don't own the AT4050 but I think it's a pro mic and anyone can get pro results from it. Warm Audio now says that they’ve learned “a bunch more” about microphones since the WA-87 … I'm finding after using it more that it requires very little eq. That's getting right to the point. In fact, I just went looking for frequency response charts on the mics I use most in my studio. Be aware, though, that there are a few multi-pattern SDCs, which can give good results in both cardioid and omni and maybe do a lot of what you'd be able to with an LDC. The better your room, the better it'll sound. Thanks for the input. I like the old ones (COMB, EB, B-ULS).
