    Expert Review

    Audix’s D6 microphone has been specially tuned for the types of frequencies associated with kick drums. Though it’s a cardioid microphone, it is actually able to capture a great sound no matter where it is placed in the vicinity of the kick drum. This is an ideal set of circumstances for those who tire of having to search for the sweet spot in order to get a great sound. The unit’s VLM diaphragm helps the D6 respond quickly to transients. This results in a kick drum sound that has a full-powered attack, which makes for an overall harder-hitting sound.Rating: 4.75/5

    Maybe this mic is broken but I've tried to EQ, compress, gate etc.... and this mic still gives a huge amount of distortion at low end. Can't get any clarity out of it, the kick drum sounds muddy. Out of desperation I dropped an SM57 in the kick drum and it made a huge difference. Probably going to replace the Audix with the Shure BETA 52 or the AKG D112.
