View Full Version : Best Shotgun Mic For Crowd/Game FX Sound

05-05-2016, 09:12 AM
We're looking to add better crowd noise/game FX noise to our broadcasts. Does anyone have a suggestion for reasonably priced shotgun mics? We'd take them into a mixer before they entered the Tricaster. Also, how do you recommend placing the mics to capture the best game FX noise?

Rode NTG2 are not a bad choice for nat sound. Pretty rugged and can be powered by AA or Phantom.

My preference is always a Sennheiser MKH-416. Those mics are just amazing.
