I've recently bought a Korg MR-1 recorder which is excellent, it comes bundled with a tiny CM-2M stereo electret condenser mic, which is a pretty good all-rounder...
however, I want to record my wife's band (Amy Blue) at their gigs and sessions in an 'audio-archive' capacity. At the moment the tiny mic handles most of the sound, however it is susceptible to distortion at the higher ends at volume.
Does anyone have any recommendations on an alternative microphone I could use?
I've managed to get the following information about the CM-2M mic;
Element: Condenser, electret
Polar Pattern: Stereo, directional
Frequency Response: 100 -12,000Hz (12kHz)
Sensitivity: 58dB +/-3dB, 1 kHz at 1 Pa
Impedance: 680 Ohms
Cable Length: 3.28 feet
Weight: 1.76 ounces with cable
+3V phantom power
The MR-1 allows you to record via 2 mini stereo phone in plugs, these can be set to power the mic (+3v) or line.
Thanks in advance
