Would this be a good quality mic for creating voice overs for use in Final Cut Pro?

I need a mic for voice over recordings for my video. I use Soundtrack Pro and Final Cut Pro. I would like to record other quality ambient sounds as well. Would this be a quality all around mic?

    Definitely. The biggest help to you here will be the four pickup patterns - Omni for picking up ambient noise in every direction in field recording, cardioid or stereo for recording voiceovers. I did a quick sample recording of my voice in GarageBand. Upon playing it back through the speakers, my wife did a double take as she thought it was me talking until I turned around and asked her what she thought while the recording was still playing.

    Additionally - the headphone amp in this thing is worth the price of admission alone. I thought my Sennheiser HD280 Pros sounded good before, plugged into this there were highs, lows, mids, and noises I'd never before imagined hearing in my music. It makes a difference!

  • Definitely, Great mic. I use it for voice-overs, and it produces a very clean sound.

  • Yes it records a full sounding voice quality at high resolution that people compliment when i have sued it in screencast voice over recordings.
