Testing a New Microphone for My Cree Recordings

I decided to purchase what I thought would be an upgrade for my audio recording device. Below is a comparison of both audio devices.

First, is my old mic that I have been using for most of the year 2019, the  SF-666. My settings for the device are shown below when I used my Audacity app:

I used an excerpt from one of my stories, Blue Dress:

In a dream, Kristina is holding a birch bark basket, standing at the landing of a beautiful river, much like the one close to her school but with no roads or houses on the side.

My new microphone, the BM-700, used the same settings, however I had to amplify the audio to hear the sound clearly.

I am not a professional sound man, but I think the old mic sounds better than my new mic. It is an extra step for me to amplify the audio for the new mic. I do not have to make adjustments for the old mic unless I have to crop out sound from the beginning or end.

The ads by Amazon are products that are very similar to the devices I am comparing. The old one I use is no longer available and the new one is not listed at this time.

I am sure that there are better options, however, I may stick to my old mic for now and hang on to my new mic in case something happens to the old one.

What do you think of the devices recordings? Please comment on the Facebook post.

On a side note, some of my recording was interrupted by my niece’s cell phone alarm. She wanted me to fix it because her screen is blank but the audio still works. Anyway, here is one of the interruptions from her annoying alarm:

Unfortunately, I am not going to able to fix her cell, she will have to get another one.

Awe, there it goes again. Until next time.
