I want to hear the results people get in the studio with these mics. I also wouldn't mind hearing clips of the GLS Audio ES-58 or ES-57 (Shure clones) if available.
I'm using an audio interface. The mic pres on computers stink almost as much as the headphone outs. The noise is unacceptable. I rather imagine that you would not want a long mic cable with the 3.5 mm plug because it's probably unbalanced (tip-ring). The longer the cable, the more noise an unbalanced cable picks up.Thanks for your response. Why wouldn't you use a long mic cable? How long is too long? Are you using an audio interface or a XLR-to-3.5mm cable like the one pictured above?
No, one mic can't make a stereo signal. Don't think right/left, think input. Identical r-l signals=mono.Thanks. So if a cable like this (below) is used with, say, a SM58, does the sound card receive a stereo signal with identical L and R signals? Or does it just receive a mono signal?
But it's only USB 1.1! According to the TweakMeister, that cause performance problems:Mackie Onyx Blackjack rules!

The firewire card is integral (installed in) to the analog mixer. It's just a digital out. The only thing from the analog section of the mixer used is the mic pre. It then goes into Logic, where the backing tracks are recorded. Then I mix and add some 'verb, and export to mp3.Hak why are you not using a virtual mixer in pro logic or in garage band?
