I wanted to know how good the Mics are on my new Zoom H1. Being a mixer I think dialogue is one of the hardest things to record well as all humans are familiar with the sound to such a degree that it is obvious when it is done badly.
I setup a TLM170 and placed the H1 right next to it, I then read the opening paragraph to Michel Chion’s Audio-Vision, my mouth is approximately 15cm away from the mics. I’ve done nothing to the recordings (no EQ or Compression) and recorded at 24Bit, 96KHz although I bounced out to 16Bit/48Khz to enable a sensible upload time to SoundCloud (internet where I work is appallingly slow, took 10 minutes just to upload these 5Mb files).
Now, I have a lovely sinus infection and have a bunged right ear. PLEASE tell me how they both sound as I’m itching to know and wont wait until I’m feeling well again.
