It’s As Good As They Say. Hear for yourself (Video) The Shure SM7B is a fantastic microphone. When setup properly this thing produces crisp, clean, professional audio with the lowest of noise floors; even in less than ideal conditions.I have no window treatments in my room, a computer, and a 5 disk array whirring in the background and this thing can cut them out and provide me with a signal so good I don’t have to post process it. No joke.I can talk about this all day but words would never do it justice. Check out my video (https://youtu.be/QarxpFpHq2o) for a demo of how this thing sounds. I have it pared with a Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 and Cloudlifter and it’s a thing of beauty.Video Demo With Unprocessed Audiohttps://youtu.be/QarxpFpHq2o

You need to buy additional equipment and dbx processors to make it sound great. I prefer to start with a microphone that … The microphone’s “natural” sound is a thud to my ears. You need to buy additional equipment and dbx processors to make it sound great. I prefer to start with a microphone that is dynamic across the spectrum BEFORE any processing takes place, I returned this Shure, spent an extra $100.00, and got the EV RE 27….huge difference and much more prsesence.

When you Power it Properly it Really Shines! This mic is absolutely amazing. I thought I had done something wrong when I first received it as it sounded extremely sub par compared to the glowing reviews from Major recording studios that it has garnered. Then a much more knowledgeable audio technician explained to me that it is a very power hungry mic and needs a capable preamp to really shine. So I grabbed a Grace Design m101 and wow… Just wow! If you don’t have the cash for that there is also the Cloudlifter CL-1 but I can speak to that options quality as I didn’t directly compare the two.This is now easily one of my favorite recording combo’s!
