Both amazing. The first one is a fantastic smooth Lindy groove. Made me want to dance.

I tried to post that last one here but the thread never came back to life. :(





Maybe not as legit as Postmodern Jukebox, but still fun.

But does that count as a cover? What about this?

I kinda feel like I got to hide for this one, but I still think it is really awesome.

Usually I don't like miley cyrus' music at all but this cover touched me for whatever reason.
Maybe it is just because I love the song no matter who sings it as long as it is done well. And I for my part have to say, this one is well done.

I second that and would add. Any cover that Heart does of Led Zep is the best cover ever.

They do Led Zeplin better than Led Zeplin  ;D

I just came bac kfrom band rehearsal where I used my Shure 55sh today...that's the model of mic miley Cyrus is singing in.

The clip gave me a very "unline" feeling and at 01:15 she sings on and away of the mic....
And still the volume was very consistent
I did that by accident too and I lost too much volume...

or there was a lot of production in it or it was just a playback setup.

The mindy smith version had an original touch and she has a nice voice but the song missed some serious balls. ;)

Sorry I only believe it when this guy is singing it

You know Likke li with "I follow rivers"? well, actually she isn't that much of a singer.
Throw it in the hands of Triggerfinger. See them recording it at a Dutch radio show.





I never liked "sweet dreams" that much but Triggerfingers frontman Ruben Block makes it just right:





ah k; didn't know this song but after checking the original by Rihanna, I made my choice.

Lieven, I don't think it's a SH55. I don't know what it is, but I think it's a large diaphragm dynamic microphone. If not that it might be a condenser, but I've never seen a condenser that looks like that.

I like that version of Sweet Dreams, thanks for sharing.

well I trust your judgement in identifying mics.
(if it's not, it surely looks like one)

Well, at least, when she's singing in it, at least it's at the correct spot.
It turned out to be the solution for keeping out the bleed of our leadguitarists' amp :)

OK.. I have to ask.. Were you using an omni mic before?

Sm58's present at the rehearsal room. It's a small shack and acoustically not the best but I thought sm58 were uni, not omni, right? ( and my spot is head to head with the Guitarist, with several meters  between)

Yes, they're both cardoid. Similar pickup patterns and frequency response. I might be misunderstanding. When you said; "It turned out to be the solution for keeping out the bleed of our leadguitarists' amp" were you suggesting that it was because of the 55?

I'm not sure which Shure you are looking at but the one on Jolene is a 55sh.

The 55sh and sm58 are both cardioid dynamics. Both actually have very similar polar patterns but he 55 rejects a bit more and the frequency response of the two are different.

But if you mean the MC video,,, I'm sure they are not recording out in that field. that is a studio sound and probably not even the mic they used.

Well, yeah, the frequency responses are different..  :o  But similar. What I'm getting at is that there's no low-pass or high-pass filter on the mic. There's no boost switch. They're both cardioid. "Cardioid" got it's name from the "heart-shaped" polar response pattern. Could it really be that different? 

This is a 55:


This is a 58:


The 58 looks like it has better rear rejection..

I can see switching from a 58 to a beta 58 (or some other supercardioid or hypercardioid mic) somewhat reducing some bleed.. but going from a 58 to a 55 being "the solution for keeping out the bleed of our leadguitarists' amp" ??

I must be missing something.

I'm not disagreeing with you.

I agree... from specs... it doesn't seem that it would be the cure for guitar amp bleed unless, like he said the room has problems at specific frequencies that the 55 rejects better. Like below 200 where it looks like the 55 has a at least a few dB better rejection ( if I'm seeing those dots correctly,,, which I may not be ).

The 58 also has 4dB better sensitivity. So that gives you maybe 8dB below 200Hz.. or 4dB at other problem frequencies. It's quite possible that the 58 has a peak where the room has a peak and maybe the 55 has a dip... So you have as much as a 10dB difference fairly easily. Luck of the draw perhaps... but real none the less.

That might be.. but guitar is fairly broad-spectrum and usually what's excessive or lacking in frequency response gets compensated for on the console EQ. I've just never found using different mics with similar polar patterns to be a solution for bleed. Usually only gating, isolation, mic placement and/or reducing volume helps with that.
