Hey all,

I wanted to post some more sound samples of Poctops u67 with my capsule. This is the production capsule and I will soon be creating a white market thread to take orders. My approach tuning this capsule was with the 100pf feedback cap so it will allow the end user to tune the mic a it further if they want it brighter or darker depending on their own taste. Please respond and let me know what you think. I am doing a limited first run. Here are some pics of a cap as well as our good friend Wave doing a bit of singing. These are two clips recorded at different times, the first is through a neve 9098 and the other an SSL 9k. Please let me know what you think...

Hi Eric,
Thanks for your strenuous work on this capsule!

The two clips are the same one is through a neve 9098 and the other an SSL 9k. Please let me know what you think...

If I understand you correctly the soundclips are the same take recorded in parallel through two different preamps. In the SSL version I hear distortion, particularly on the second syllable of *thinking*. Any comments? How did you split the mic signal going into the pre's?

sorry I should have been clear, these are actually 2 clips recorded at different times. the SSL very well could have an issue. I should check it out although I didn't notice it when we listened on Dave's genelecs. What did you think of the sound of the capsule?

Paid for 2x U67 ioaudio kits and 10x standard taper U87 kits :)

Used four of the u1621's today to record drums (tight OH L/R in a GJ setup, and trumpet/sax) and it sounded absolutely great. One take on like nine or ten songs.

Thanks Dany!
Cheers,

Paid up. Eventually the missus put the brakes on the U87 long taper, so we'll have to do with U67 pair for now..
