Putting the RØDE M5 to the test

Steve WB recently posted a test of the RØDE M5 on Facebook, here is the result.

The Rode M5 is one of the cheapest and surprisingly awesome mics out there that packs a whole lot of punch. No I am not paid by Rode nor am I an ambassador. I just love Rode mics, and this one is a little gem.

Look, I recorded this whole song with the Rode M5 only (other than bass, which was D/I) and the results surprised me. The vocal sound surprised me the most!

No pitch correction, no reverb, no EQ and no compression. Only pan, volume and master limiting for loudness.
