First off, please bear with my minimal microphone knowledge...
I'm using a very low-end CAD U37 mic.
How can I tell if my large diaphragm condenser microphone was damaged during a recent session. After the session I'm thinking that I had a guitar cab up a little too loud for my mic.Afterwards I started recording a vocal track and noticed that the microphone seemed to lose much of it's brightness and clarity.I really can't tell if I'm just hearing things or what.Does any know what can happen when you manage to exceed the SPL rating of a condenser microphone?
Anyone else have any problems like this?
