I'd heard a lot of positive hype about the NT1A and claims of it being the "quietest mic in the market". I was very much surprised by the low-cost and comparisons to microphones in a much higher price range, so I picked one up figuring that if it didn't live up to the claims, I'd return it and buy a more expensive mic.
I didn't return it. And I don't ever see myself selling it either.
Quite simply, this mic is amazing. I plugged it in direct to Roland 24-track digital workstation and cranked the gain all the way to 10. Not even a touch of hiss. This never happened with my SM57, and I always attributed the hiss to weak preamps in the Roland. Guess not. The pickup on the NT1A is incredible, to the extent that I had to remove a small clock on the far wall because I could hear the second hand ticking. This wasn't audible to the naked human ear until you literally put your ear on the clock. I even had to add a couple throw rugs in the studio under the mic area because I could hear the carpet pad connecting with the cement floor. Amazing.
The mic sounds nice direct, but I typically run it through a good tube preamp and the sound is warm and pristine, with the only noise coming from the preamp. I've recorded everything from dreampop to industrial screaming and this mic handles it all.
Only complaint--with the exception of the XLR cable that came with it, I've had issues getting other cables to connect to the NT1A.Read more ›
No, it doesn't allow you to utilize multiple polar patterns, it is strictly cardioid. That's why this microphone is best for vocals. I would say that would be one downfall of this mic. But geez, it only costs $229... how could you possibly go wrong? If you're starting up your own home studio, this is a must buy. Don't go with those cheap USB powered microphones... they're not good for vocals or anything except talking on skype and podcasting. The Rode NT1-A is an exceptional mic, and the value cannot be beaten.
