Snap! That Neumann is a wonderful mic for the money. A top quality large diaphragm condenser studio mic that’s cheaper than most of my location sound mics! Such a bargain!

I just watched the promotional video for the Audiofuse interface. It looks like a really versatile bit of kit. Do you ever take it out of the studio? I’m going to need to upgrade my computer soon, which sadly also means I’ll probably have to bite the bullet and fork for a new interface too, since my trusty old units are no longer supported by modern operating systems. :frowning:

Ah, I totally adore my TLM102 indeed. I must say, though, that while my original idea was to sell the Rode NT1A once the Neumann arrived, I found out that the latter works best for me in certain situations so I ended up keeping em both.

About the Audiofuse, hands down it’s the best interface I ever had so far. Period. I did take it out of the studio and it works really well, however I had a few minor bugs (a glitch or two in long takes, a few pops) when recording through a phantom powered input, as it’s expressly recommended in the manual to plug it to DC when doing so. And yeah, that sucks. I always prefer to go out with my trusted 4 inputs H6 when recording outdoors.

Taken from the manual:

One last thing: it heats LIKE HELL!!! Happens to everybody and they say it’s absolutely normal. Apparently it’s just the cooling method of the unit so… All of that said, I had it for three months and I’m loving it big time.

Hope it helps! Cheers!

You can never have enough microphones! They’re like guitars. One is never really a replacement for another.

Thanks for the info. I’ll consider the Audiofuse when I go for the upgrade.
