    Dear Friends,

    The time has come for me to buy a proper set of microphones for sampling (piano or whatever else comes across me). I read excellent things about the Lineaudio CM4 microphones (and heard some really impressive audio, with people claiming they have only used a pair of these mikes).


    Anyone using these regularly? Anything to be aware of?

    Thanks in advance,


    We had a similar subject some days ago – maybe it might help:

    Interesting to see so many suggestions for SM57 which is something of an oddball in terms of frequency response (super uneven in the high frequencies).
    I guess there must be a good reason why it’s used so widely, however I thought that recording instruments (especially quiet sounds) is better with more sensitive – and more linear mikes.
