Rode S1 or the journey into the unknown

Gordon H., 29.07.2012
After I ordered a S1 at a cheaper provider on the Internet, I was very unsure whether the processing quality of Rode, because it did not work so right. If it worked, I was however very satisfied with the sound. So I have studied forums to find out what it could be (consoles and cables exchanged, run on different circuits), but the problem still existed (unpredictable signal loss or even additional noise after repair). I could not guess that I would still hold a defective microphone in the hands after the second complaint. So I had the phantom power of my Yamahapultes in suspicion, since the S1 according to forum contributions is probably something bitchy with the phantom power. I was even on the verge of buying a new console when I decided to order a second reference microphone from Thomann. However, I could not determine where the error was. If he is with Rode himself, the company is not recommended for me. If he has his cause in the customer service of the other provider, I have already drawn my conclusions. In any case I could have bought a Neumann for the sum of two S1.

Here is the story to decide for a condensation micro. Finally, it is not self-evident that a decade-old SM58 user (by the way, without a single failure ...) is considering the switch to a condensation mixer. For a long time, we have been recording live recordings with our duo, with the micro also being used as a HiHat replacement with the mouth. Everything always sounded crystal clear and present, only the voice (especially the mouth Hi-Hat) was dull in the middle and despite the elevation. The original idea was to use a SM58 beta, but I could not quite make friends with it. When rummaging through the condensation corner, I then decided to break with the "vintage tradition". See, the voice can now be found in all frequency bands without any significant equalization.

Conclusion: If it works, the sound is great for my sound. If it does not work, the whole evening is messed up. From the point of view, it corresponds to a dynamic micro, only slightly longer. My next condensation microphone will definitely be a Neumann by Thomann.

Supplement:
In the meantime, I have worked with different cables and lo and behold, there are probably also problems here. Rode has added a completely dumb rubber ring to his S1 to prevent the problem of wobbly plugs in the micro. Once the contact is interrupted, the micro needs several seconds to restart. It would have been better to name a reference plug that works reliably. The black Neutrik plugs seem to work.

At the end of my wishes

Friederike K., 20.12.2010
I was long looking for my microphone for the stage. It was supposed to bring my soprano crystal clear, with the sound pressure produced by my voice not capitulate, robust and also with not quite so disciplined singing (I sings both classical and soul and pop) no Plosives generate. In the studio I am satisfied with a Neumann KMS 400, but when I give a full voice, I have to keep a half a m distance. Besides, it is too bad for the stage.

The Rode S1 immediately convinced me, it does not sound the twice as expensive Neumann sound. The triple pop protection is excellent, and this micro is also able to withstand the most powerful singing. The frequency response is transparent and balanced. The feedback resistance is also very good for a condensation microphone. By its tangible weight it is also a weapon, if a technician seriously a SM 58 wants to present. Also my Toning is enthusiastically. He usually does not know a singing microphone, which he can easily use for the amp acceptance on the backline. The only flaw I could find: the packaging reminds of the tights of Aldi. A thin cardboard box is absolutely inappropriate for a micro of this price class. That cost the fifth star.
