Think Academy Awards or Golden Globes or Grammy's.
What's the best mic for a speech in a large hall setting with very (and I mean very) loud monitors on the stage? It will have to be used on bassy male voices and screechy female voices - voices of all types and frequencies.
Currently I'm using a hyper-cardioid pencil-mic capsule on a custom-built microphone stand, and while mixing the voice it's definitely hard and battling a lot of splash from the monitors and phase-cancellation issues from the podium.
I'm about ready to just ditch the condenser and place my AKG C5 mic I won in a contest. The amount of notches and dynamic EQ I am using is just absurd and shouldn't be that way for a simple podium situation - am I right?
Thanks - Ryan
