Aseyer Mic Review: D36B and L36B

Thursday, October 13th, 2011 | by


 

AseyerSo, Matt asked me if I’d be willing to review some microphones from a company called Aseyer. I had never heard of them, but why would that stop me from plugging them in to see how they sound?

When the mics arrived they seemed to be made from “off the shelf” bodies. This wasn’t a huge surprise or concern of mine. I’d rather a company focus on what’s inside the mic than on its casing. The L36B is round with a non-tapering body and looks vaguely like a slightly polished FET47 with the catching ‘eye’ logo etched into the metal that looks quite nice, if a little large. The D36B Pro has a tapered body and grill and a matte finish. Yea, yea I know, move on…

So, how do they sound? The answer is pretty good. Often when I get mics the first thing I do is put them over my drum set, and record myself playing. I’m a lifelong drummer so I know what sound will be produced and I can often get a feel for a mic after listening to playback. When I heard these tracks together I thought the sound was really great. These two mics make one excellent overhead. When I listened to each individually the differences were quite striking. The AseyerL36B has a really nice low mid, good articulation and nice sound in the top end. There’s a slight scoop in the upper mids, which keeps it from getting too harsh. The low was fairly clean. The D36B, on the other hand, is much more upper-mid-forward with less of the low-mid warmth, and a brighter top. These differences are probably why I enjoyed the sound of the two mics together.

My first use of the mics in an actual session was a solo acoustic guitar and vocal, with Patrick Jenkins, an artist I’ve been slowly chipping away on a record with. He’s a very good singer and writer, but not a ‘fancy’ guitarist. This particular song was designed to be just guitar and vocal, maybe with a harmony.

I knew that I’d want stereo guitar and some room sound. For the room I used the AseyerD36B, thinking that I’d be able to capture the ambience, even if it is low in the mix. I figured while I was at it I’d put the L36B on the vocal. Both mics did quite well. The L36B has a very even tonality on vocals and the D36B worked really well for some room splash. For the harmony vocal we wanted something more based in feel, and more interesting. I had Patrick stay where he was, but I only used the room mic to record the track. The distance and sound of the mic gave it a very cool, eerie feeling, reminiscent of Bruce Springsteen’s Nebraska.

A little while later I used the D36B as a close room mic on drums for a gospel session. The drummer had a pretty tight snare sound, and nice articulation. I put the mic at snare height about 4 feet from the drum, and got a really nice hard sound of the full drum-set. I’ve worked with this group before and we end up workshopping [read: learning] the tunes with the full band and five singers. I have keys and bass going through a small PA, the singers singing without mics, and the guitar in the hall, with the door open. I pointed the D36B’s null at the PA speaker, and had no issues with bleed being too loud, even though the mic was only 18 inches from the speaker.

I put the L36B up in front of the singers after a take, but as expected there was just too much sound in the room to hear it as anything but a room mic with vocal bleed. BUT, when it came time to cut vocals, with the lead singer and the backgrounds separated by a gobo, the L36B sounded really nice on the lead vocal, and the D36B worked fine for the backing vocals. Again the L36B (the more expensive mic) sounded very even on a female singer with a wide range. It’s not a color mic by any stretch, but a solid performer. The D36B being thinner in tone worked well for backing vocals, helping them not take over the lead, even though four ladies were singing into it at once.

All in all I think these are pretty decent mics. The less expensive D36B is useful, but far from special. The L36B seems like a mic that would, in time, prove to be a pretty smart purchase.

MATT问我愿不愿意试用几支来自一间叫做ASEYER的公司的麦克风,并写一写我的感受。我之前从未听说过他们,不过我觉得不能因此就拒绝把他们插上,听听它们的声音。
 
当我收到这些话筒的时候,发现他们的外形并没有经过特别的设计,用的就是市场上可以买到那些的外壳。我对这些毫不觉得意外,也并不觉得有什么大不了。我宁愿一个话筒制造商更注重他们产品的内在品质而不是外观。L36B是圆筒形的,从网罩到外壳都是一般粗,看起来有点像纽曼的FET 47经过了少许的抛光之后似的,外壳上蚀刻了“EYE”的LOGO,看上去很漂亮,只是觉得有体型有点大了。D36B有着锥型的外壳和网罩,外表经过糙面精整的处理。好吧,好吧,我知道啦,说重点……
 
那么,它们听起来如何呢?答案是非常好!通常我拿到了麦克风以后所做的第一件事就是用他们来录我的套鼓,由我亲自来演奏。我打了一辈子鼓,我知道它们听起来应该是什么样的。所以当我用麦克风来录了之后再回听,就能对所测试的麦克风的品质了解一二了。这一次当我将这两支麦克风的声音一起回听的时候,我觉得那声音棒极了。这两款麦克风一起可以组成非常棒的架到鼓的上方的录音话筒(overhead)。而当我分别听这两支话筒的声音的时候,它们之间的差别很明显。L36B的中低频非常好,在高频的部分声音清晰、优美。在中频的偏高部分有一个弯,这让声音避免了过分刺耳的感觉。低频的部分非常的干净。相比较而言,D36B的中频的偏高的部分相比中频的偏低的部分少了一些温暖的感觉,高频较明亮。可能就是因为这两款话筒的这些不同才让我那么喜欢他们两个一起回放的时候的声音。
 
我第一次真正用他们来录制作品是和Patrick Jenkins一起录一个吉他独奏加人声,我正在和他一起制作一个专辑。他是一个很好的歌手,可是却算不上是一个很棒的吉他手。这次录的这首歌的构想是只有吉他和人声,可能会再加上一点和声。
 
我知道因此我要录一个立体的吉他声和一些房间的声音。为了录房间的声音,我用了D36B,我希望可以用它录进一些环境音,就算是在混音后听起来并不明显。当我搭环境的时候我发现我应该用L36B录人声。两支麦克风的表现都非常好。L36B录制的人声音调平稳,D36B录到的环境音恰如其分。录和声的时候我们希望更随意、更有趣一些,我让他站在原地不要动,但是只用D36B来录这一轨,麦克风和歌手之间的距离使得录下来的声音有一种很奇妙的怪异的感觉,让人想起Bruce Springsteen的Nebraska。
 
稍后我们在录制一段福音音乐的时候又把D36B用作close room mic录鼓。这个鼓手的特点是军鼓的声音很紧,鼓点清晰。我把麦克风放在军鼓的高度,离开4英尺,得到了非常结实的整个鼓组的声音。我之前和他们合作过,所以后来我和乐队的全部成员还有5 个歌手一起进行调试。我让基调和低音部进入一部小的PA,歌手们并不对着麦克风演唱,吉他手在过道里演奏,房门开着。D36B心型指向的背面对着PA的扬声器,尽管它离扬声器只有18英寸,也不觉得收到的声音太大。
 
我录了一次之后,把L36B架起来放在歌手的前面,不过和预期的一样,因为环境音太大,结果是声音听起来只是一个房间麦克风(room mic)不小心录进了人声。不过,后来当我们切割人声,用杂音过滤布把主唱歌手和背景音乐分开的时候,发现L36B录进的主唱声音非常好,D36B录的伴唱也不错。想再说一下的是,L36B(比较贵的那支)在录女声的时候在很宽的音域里的声音都很平稳。对于声音没有任何的修饰、染色,忠实地还原了声音。D36B的音质有点薄,用来录伴唱很合适,可以让他们的声音不至于盖过主唱的声音,尽管她们有四个人同时演唱。
 

总而言之,我觉得这两款都是相当不错的话筒。价位较低的D36B挺好,可惜没有什么个性特点。而L36B,在我看来,经过时间的验证,最终你将会发现买它是一个明智的决定。
