Last week we recorded a dialogue script using 4 different boom mics that you might use for indoor dialogue for your film and video projects. We didn’t tell you which was which so that you could let your ears choose which sounded best—hopefully a decent way to let your ears make the unbiased decision on which sounds best to you. This week we talk about how your voting played out—which was most popular and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of each microphone.
Also, you can listen to the uncompressed .wav files here.
