Thank GOD for M-Audio

By Cram

from New Jersey

I just purchased a studio for my home, and purchased the mic, because of a low budget, but WOW!!!! I have compared it to the mics used in the studios I've worked in, and it gives them a run for there money, but spending a bunch less. My artist, friends and engineers couldn't tell that I recorded it on this mic. You will definately get a Bang For Your Buck with the Nova!!

tons of bang for your buck

By Jeff

from Los Angeles, CA

I bought this mic for voice overs. I figured it would be a good starter mic. This is much more then a starter mic. For so many years, I used this mic for sessions, high level auditions, everything. Even national spots. I like this mic better then the Rhode NT1A. It's quieter. I now own several other expensive mics, but I'll still use this one for certain situations. It's great! More then worth the money.

Great budget mic

By colorprotocol

from Columbia, Maryland

This is a great all purpose microphone, suitable for most applications. I have recorded guitar and voice with it and it handled very nicely. Clear highs, reasonably accurate midrange and decent lows. It doesn't have the best features, but for $100 you're getting a pretty good deal.

Great Vocal Mic

By WCA

from Los Angeles, CA

I am impressed with the quality of the mic for its price. I use this mic a lot for vocals in my home studio. Be advised that you need phantom power for this condenser mic (no battery input). If you have a powered mixer or USB + XLR computer interface, you should be fine.

Not Bad

By Bassfingerz

from New York, NY

Not the best mic in the world, but I must say for the price.....Not Bad at All :) As I have learned....There is no good or bad mic. It all depends on how and what u use them for. This is def great for vocals, but also awesome for miking instruments, cabs, and surprisingly even as an over head.
