I've been testing my new Rode NGT 2 with my Zoom H4N Pro. My girlfriend is a professional singer so mainly testing with her singing. The Rode NGT 2 seems ridiculously flat and untextured compared with the Zoom's on-board recording. Yes the Zoom is recording in stereo, but the Rode is ridiculously poor, about what you get when recording with a smart phone. I tried initially with the phantom power from the Zoom, and then with a battery, which improved things a little, but not to a level that I would call good. We're both confused that a microphone that is meant to be suitable for basic pro uses should be so so poor.
Does anyone know if the NGT 2 and the H4N Pro is a bad pairing, and is there a work-around?
Is it surprising that it should sound so flat?
