The Rode VideoMic Pro+ Part 2

Hands – on Review by Chris North M.M.Inst.V

                      Chris north has done some more test on this microphone, this time outdoors , to test for wind noise and ambient noises. (previous review here) Chris asks… and would like some feedback Which settings do you prefer (ie sound most ‘natural’) from these clips ?

It may well depend on the person’s voice – I generally run my outdoor/ location mics with their moderate bass cut applied. The Rode’s permanent +5dB of treble boost ‘built-in’ seems a bit strange to me- so when the switchable Treble boost is applied on top of that, the boost peak increases to about +7.5dB at 4000 Hz which seems a bit aggressive (although this has the advantage of bringing the higher frequencies beyond 5500kH up to the 0 dB line).
