Which brings the following question:
Mic recommendations for the Omni VI ?? I've the plastic mike as
below (700?) that even -DX- complains about the squeak. Otherwise the
audio quality is ok. I've tried Heil headsets, Shure 444's, D104, etc.
I still can not find a mic that will give both good audio quality, AND
work with VOX.
I have a very deep voice, and would really like to use VOX, but as of
yet I cannot find a mic that works. The problem is if I get the delay
to high to keep VOX from dropping in between words, the delay's too long
and defeats the purpose of the VOX system.
I've adjusted both gains, anti-vox, and delay to no avail. I do not
like amplified mic's. I like to run clean, clear audio. Anyone have a
recommendation for a good -desktop- mike that will do the above, yet
keep clean, clear audio quality???
