Blickfanger, 21.12.2010
This is the one microphone that I always want to use whenever possible. (I purchased a second one after falling in love with the first.) It is a superb product in every way, from the aluminium suitcase, to the Vovox cabling, to the power unit, to the microphone itself. I have never heard a more quiet mic, while it has an unbelievable ability to pick up soft and subtle sounds. It almost sounds as if a very good optocompressor was used. A theoretical one, with no noise! This makes it excellent for voice work, but also for foley studio recording for movies and to record room ambiences. Voice recordings will cut through the mix on one side, but they will be very warm at the same time, with great although well-defined lows and fantastic silky representation in the highs. A true tube sound, but again: without any perceivable noise.

This mic is so extremely sensitive that for some people it may be too much of mic goodness. Think of a speaker with false teeth. This mic will let you hear it loud and clear. Is your recording room not well isolated? You will hear the traffic 5 kilometres away from the house. An AKG C414 might be a better choice under such circumstances, because it is far less sensitive than this baby. (Well, it's a totally different mic in many other ways of course, but just to give you some indication.)

I find that the Valvet X performs best with a neutral solid state amplifier, with low noise. The (very modern) tube sound is already there and who wants distortion anyway? I use it a lot with LAKE PEOPLE MIC-AMP F355 CLASS A FRONTEND or the built in high quality preamps of Sound Devices 788T-SSD recorder. If I had the money I would perhaps pair it to the Schoeps VSR5 Mic Preamp, or a Grace Design m201. Recently I had to send a recording that I made from a great voice actor to a big voice-over studio. These people were absolutely stunned about the results and wondered how I had processed the sound to make it that beautiful. It was just a straight recording from the actor in the sound booth with the Valvet X into the SD 788T-SSD...

The shockmount is also very nice to the eye, but it is somewhat less effective, so I use this mic with the RYCOTE UNIVERSAL STUDIO MOUNT USM-L, which is simply the best shockmount I have ever used. It works perfectly with the Valvet X.

Just to put in perspective how much I love this mic: if I had to save only one mic of my pretty large collection of high-end microphones (that includes a vast array of fantastic Schoeps mics) it would be this one.

Georgi K., 14.04.2011
Auf der Suche nach einem hochwertigen Großmembranmikrofon, stieß ich auf das Valvet X und bestellte es ohne groß nachzudenken.

Zu Hause dann die Erkenntnis: Dirk Brauner und seine Jungs wissen tatsächlich das Motto "the art of microphones" umzusetzen. Ein hochwertiger, abschließbarer Koffer beinhaltet das optisch ansprechende Valvet X, welches bereits in seiner edlen Spinne steckt. Das Netzteil wirkt unkaputtbar und zeugt von einer schweren Qualität, genauso wie das VOVOX Kabel, welches von Haus aus dabei ist.

Mikro aufs Stativ, Kabel rein, Netzteil an, Sänger davorgestellt und: Hammer!

Das Mikro ist extrem hochauflösend - zum guten und zum schlechten. Man hört alles in der Stimme - auch kleine Schwankungen, Schmatzen, Grunzen, etc...:) Die hohen Frequenzen der Stimme werden besonders hervorgehoben, dafür fehlt es an den mittleren. Das Mikro hat einen hohen output und trotzdem ist kein Rauschen hörbar.

Das Mikro ist bei Leibe kein Allrounder. Nun die herbe Enttäuschung: Es eignet sich VOR ALLEM nicht für Rap. Ich persönlich hatte es mir allerdings genau für diesen Zweck geholt... Mein Fehler! Als ich bei Brauner angerufen hatte, sagte man mir darauf: "Das ist Thomas D's Lieblingsmikrofon...". Ganz ehrlich, für mich ist Thomas D kein Rapper, doch da scheiden sich natürlich die Geister. Genau die mittleren Frequenzen, die wichtig für den Punch und die Dynamik sind, fehlen und konnten im Nachhinein auch nach stundenlangem Equalizing nichtmal ausfindig gemacht werden. Es ist als ob das Brauner diese einfach nicht zu "100% aufnimmt" und auch nach anschließendem Hinzufügen, damit nicht gut klingt. Das Mikro klingt ZU HiFi für Rap!!! Negativ ist mir vor allem aufgefallen, dass nach der Komprimierung die Stimme anfängt zu zischeln (hört man auch leicht ohne Kompressor), was wohl wirklich an der Frequenzanhebung im oberen Bereich liegt. Ein De-esser ist hier von Nöten!

Sicherlich ist das nicht der Sinn der Sache, da diese Prozeduren den Sound immer matschiger machen und es bestimmt Mikrofone gibt, die für solche Zwecke besser geeignet sind und schon von Anfang an bei schnellem Sprachgesang und schnellen Transienten gut klingen (Neumann TLM 49, Neumann TLM 103, evtl. Audio Technika 4050, etc...). Die Lektion die ich schmerzhaft lernen musste ist vor allem, dass es egal ist wieviel ein Mikro kostet - es gibt immer ein besseres, welches vielleicht etwas billiger ist, doch für einen bestimmten Zweck besser geeignet ist.

Das Valvet X ist aber ansonsten ein Mikro, welches sicherlich einige Anwendungsbereiche findet (Männer- und VOR ALLEM Frauengesang oder Instrumentenaufnahmen) und diese dann hervorragend meistert. Danke für diese Bereicherung Hr. Brauner!

Ich persönlich werde trotzdem versuchen das Mikrofon loszuwerden.
