For example, their song “Dimple” was recorded with a Neumann C-12 because it suited the record’s retro sound, whereas their more recent famous songs such as “I Need U” and “Save Me” were recorded with a Sennheiser e609 (as noted in RM’s shoutout video).

Originally the member V would sing vocals while playing guitar tracks live throughout concerts, but then he switched over to primarily producing beats after Min Yoongi introduced him to DJing.

Which Microphone Does NPR (National Public Radio) Use?

NPR uses Shure SM58-LC Cardioid Dynamic Microphone.

This is a very popular microphone that has been used by many people for many years. The frequency range of the mic is from 50 Hz to 15 kHz, which provides excellent clarity and sensitivity across the vocal spectrum with low distortion levels while providing superior feedback rejection.

In addition, it has an internal shock-mount system and can be easily plugged into any XLR input without requiring an adapter because it features a locking quarter-inch connector at its base. It weighs about 0.85 pounds (395 grams). Another great feature this mic offers is the ability to switch between omnidirectional or cardioid patterns depending on your desired needs to gain awareness when recording vocals or instruments as well.

Which Microphone Does Eminem Use?

The mic is best for recording vocals, drums, and guitar amps; it also produces clean audio with low noise in the background so that you can’t hear unwanted sounds on your recordings.

He was seen using this mic when Beyoncé came to visit him backstage after one of his concerts in 2017 as well as during an interview segment from February 2018.

One thing we know about Eminem: He never sticks with just one single piece of equipment – including microphones!

The mic has been her go-to for performances over the years, and she even took it with her on tour when headlining Glastonbury Festival in 2014 (and reportedly used it to record vocals for the 2008 album I Am… Sasha Fierce). She also had an array of other microphones at her disposal – including Neumann U87s – but this was still one of them!

It might not be surprising that the two biggest pop stars in recent history both use Shure mics; after all, they’re industry vets who have platinum records between them.

It records audio from 180 degrees on one side to up to 60 degrees on the other side of a central line and includes sound under the microphone as well as from behind, above, or below it.
