Addicted to Fun and Learning

Or use a better suited mic. With the begin of the pandemic I went into home office, and after 2 days of many video meetings I began to hate the wireless headset supplied by my employer. I switched to my private equipment: a hypercardioid Beyer Dynamic MCE 86 S2 connected to a Mackie 1402 VLZ PRO mixer (which supplies phantom power) connected to an RME ADI-2PRO fs which also feeds 2 Genelec 8020a for listening. The mic is located below the left screen at about 50 cm distance which means I can move my head freely without major impact on loudness of the recorded voice. The room is very small but heavily furnitured so no problem with reflections.
I know this looks like total overkill just for video meetings, OTOH people told me that my voice had the quality of a professional news speaker ...
Funny. I did the same
DPA 4066, the same Mackie 1402 VLZ pro, connected to RME ADI2-Pro fs BE.
I listen through Focal Elegia, though ;-)
For work video I'm using an Earthworks Audio SR314, front addressed, and it's pretty enough to show in the camera if I want to Connected to a MOTU M2 while listening with Beyerdynamic headphones powered by my RME ADI-2 DAC FS. My "webcamera" is a Fujifilm X-T2 with a XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR lens.
Overkill, but with the pandemic is forcing me to work so much from home it did me give an excellent excuse for indulging myself.
