If you have never used a condenser microphone for singing before, you'e probably not aware of the enormous difference they can make to how well a singer sounds on stage as well as in the studio. This is so due to the fact that condenser microphones have a wider and more uniform frequency response range than conventional dynamic microphones. This is why most all professionals who sing or operate recording studios exclusively use condenser-type microphones for their unparalleled performance. Because condenser microphones need additional external power in order to work, a mixer with phantom power was usually needed in order to use them. Unfortunately, phantom power is a feature rarely found in consumer to semi-pro mixers, so most of the time dynamic microphones had to be used instead. Well, that is all changed now!
