I suspect the Rode track would need the help of some additive EQ to help cut through a full mix, and also for my taste. But a friend of mine who owns both microphones has done an audio high quality comparison: https://www.dropbox.com/s/2eofdj2mxu9zocz/X1-NT1.mp3?dl=0 #1 is sEx1 and #2 is Rode NT1, In which I found sEx1 to be more warm and better. Nonetheless, several mics have stood out over time as favorites in this category. The -10db pad would allow me to use the X1 for loud sources (such as close drum overheads), which I know from experience the NT1A can not handle. Nor to transport the X1 in a cardboard box. I ran into a problem with the mic clip included with the X1. In contrast to Roberto’s strumming, Joe employed a finger-picking style. In contrast, the clip included with the X1 was a disaster. A mic’s self-noise comes into play here. In all the above audio tracks, Mic #1 is the sE Electronics X1. It always feels lighter than I expect a mic of its size to be. Neumann TLM 102 or sE X1 or Audio-Technica AT2035, info: Overall, there isn’t a huge difference between the mics. I wish the switches for the pad and the HPF on the X1 matched the mics’ otherwise very sturdy construction. SE Electronics x1 vs Rode NT1: I've done an error? The entire mic is covered with rubberized textured finish, even the grille! A new contender in this category is the sE Electronics X1. Unless you plan to use an X1 for some kind of permanent installation, I’d say save yourself the frustration and use a different mic clip. I would say, that if you're just doing voice acting, the sEx1 will be plenty useful. In this review, I will compare it to the established Rode NT1A. The NT1 Kit comes with everything that you need to get starting including a shockmount and an integrated pop filter. _wpaudio.enc['wpaudio-5fc339d27df3f'] = '\u0068\u0074\u0074\u0070\u003a\u002f\u002f\u0063\u0064\u006e\u002e\u0072\u0065\u0063\u006f\u0072\u0064\u0069\u006e\u0067\u0068\u0061\u0063\u006b\u0073\u002e\u0063\u006f\u006d\u002f\u0073\u006f\u0075\u006e\u0064\u0073\u002f\u0073\u0061\u006d\u0070\u006c\u0065\u0073\u002f\u0058\u0031\u002d\u004e\u0054\u0031\u0041\u002f\u0052\u006f\u0062\u0065\u0072\u0074\u006f\u0058\u0031\u002e\u006d\u0070\u0033';Fender DG, Mic #1 With the X1, I would likely reach for a de-esser. That graph is for the Rode NT1 released in 1997. Thanks a lot. I have been looking at the RODE NT1A and the SE ELECTRONICS X1 which are in the same price range. Like the NT1A, it also features a fixed Cardioid polar pattern at a competitive price. In a mix with other instruments, I don’t want too much of those from the acoustic guitar, so I usually cut around 200–400hz. She performed an acapella cover of “Settle Down” by the wonderful New Zealand artist Kimbra. At the first listen, both mics sounded very similar. This is a proven sweet spot for mono-miking an acoustic guitar. _wpaudio.enc['wpaudio-5fc339d280267'] = '\u0068\u0074\u0074\u0070\u003a\u002f\u002f\u0063\u0064\u006e\u002e\u0072\u0065\u0063\u006f\u0072\u0064\u0069\u006e\u0067\u0068\u0061\u0063\u006b\u0073\u002e\u0063\u006f\u006d\u002f\u0073\u006f\u0075\u006e\u0064\u0073\u002f\u0073\u0061\u006d\u0070\u006c\u0065\u0073\u002f\u0058\u0031\u002d\u004e\u0054\u0031\u0041\u002f\u004a\u006f\u0065\u0047\u0074\u0072\u004e\u0054\u0031\u0041\u002e\u006d\u0070\u0033';Epiphone Dreadnaught, Mic #2. Mic #2 is the Rode NT1-A. While I did manage to wrestle the darn thing onto the mic once, it was entirely too difficult and frustrating, and was impossible to do without thoroughly blemishing the finish around the bottom of the mic where the clip attaches. The sE X1, according to its tech specs, produces 16dBA self-noise. Hi guys, I am a male low voice voice actor and I'm looking to upgrade to some new setup and I'm really in a doubt for the Mic, in the past months I've watched a lot and lot or reviews and thought that Rode was the best choice. I bought the sE X1 mic a few days ago, and I encountered the same problem with the features “0 dB – 10dB” and the low cut switch which I still can’t understand when it is engaged or not… I have checked all possible manuals and I do not know which of the symbols on the right side of the mic (the low cut switch) activates it or not… Rode NT1-A, sE X1 Mic, Neumann TLM 102, AKG Perception P220 Blind Test. The difference in the high end and the resulting sibilance is more apparent here than it was with Joe, and I again prefer the NT1A. For vocal recordings, an external pop filter was used. Please use the Purchase Advice Thread for buying advice. Now, I bought Sex1 voice pack and I'm kinda regret that decision, be honest with Me did I make a wrong choice? Nonetheless, the NT1A still gave me more bass response than I want. To my ear, the X1 was leaner on the low-end, but only very slightly so–nothing that a decrease in proximity effect on the NT1-A couldn’t replicate. For all-around studio usage, I would give the edge to the Rode NT1-A. _wpaudio.enc['wpaudio-5fc339d27b061'] = '\u0068\u0074\u0074\u0070\u003a\u002f\u002f\u0063\u0064\u006e\u002e\u0072\u0065\u0063\u006f\u0072\u0064\u0069\u006e\u0067\u0068\u0061\u0063\u006b\u0073\u002e\u0063\u006f\u006d\u002f\u0073\u006f\u0075\u006e\u0064\u0073\u002f\u0073\u0061\u006d\u0070\u006c\u0065\u0073\u002f\u0058\u0031\u002d\u004e\u0054\u0031\u0041\u002f\u004a\u006f\u0065\u0058\u0031\u002e\u006d\u0070\u0033';Male Vox, Mic #1 The artist’s movement during a performance could cause slight volume and tonal fluctuations between the two mics, but I feel the resulting differences are negligible as compared to the potential differences between separate performances. If this post is not looking for buying advice, then message the moderators, and it should be resolved within a day. The X1 ships in a foam-lined box containing the mic, a clip and an instruction manual with a frequency response chart. 22 Jan 2012 1 Comment. And again the NT1A exhibited more low-mids — perhaps a little more than I’d like for Brooke’s voice, but when it comes to dealing with proximity effect/low mids on vocals I always prefer having to use EQ subtractively than additively.
