Why Choose Thronmax Microphones
30 November 2020
If you’re serious about your craft, you’ll know of the importance of having the tools to do the job right. The same applies to audio. If you’re a YouTuber, streamer, podcaster, gamer or working from a studio or rehearsal space, then you’ll need a microphone that captures your voice and sounds from the source correctly, accurately and free of distortion, tonal imbalance or colouration. That’s where a quality Thronmax microphone comes in.
Thronmax is a Swedish owned and operated company that formed in 2009 with the aim of elevating the often-neglected microphone and recording quality to levels common to speakers and video. The company offers a range of products to suit any application that requires professional recording quality.
Thronmax MDrill One Pro
The flagship of the Thronmax microphone range is the MDrill One Pro. It features a 96 KHz sample rate and 24 bit bit-rate and it incorporates Thronmax’s Vertigain technology which aims to minimize sound wave scattering. Less scattering means leads to an increase in clarity and sound quality compared to many traditional mesh microphones.
The MDrill One is an amazingly versatile microphone thanks to its flexible modes. You can choose between cardioid, stereo, bi-directional and omni-directional modes. This means the MDrill One can be used with applications ranging from something as simple as a one on one Skype call to team conferencing, to Twitch and YouTube broadcasting, all the way to musical instrument recording.
Other key features include a smart LED indicator that shows mic gain and headphone volume, a 3.5mm headphone jack for real-time listening and playback, USB Type-C connectivity and a 7-colour LED mood light. Setup couldn’t be easier thanks to plug-and-play compatibility across various platforms including PC, Mac and PS4. It’s also available in a kit with useful accessories including a pop filter, travel case and boom adapter. If you don’t need professional-level 96KHz/24bit recording then the non-Pro MDrill One does everything the Pro does but at a more affordable price.
Microphones that are perfectly suited for gamers
If you’re looking for a top-quality mic but don’t want to spend big bucks then the MDrill Pulse will suit perfectly. It offers Cardioid recording with noise-cancelling making it a perfect mic for users looking for top quality podcasting or twitch recording, but who have no intention of using recording modes that are aimed at musical or studio recording. It’s compact and portable too and it will elevate your recordings to quality levels that the mics on inferior headsets won’t be able to match.
Then there’s the MDrill Dome. It can be used for all kinds of applications including omni-directional capturing, but consider this: You have an expensive and much loved set of audio headphones, and you don’t want to spend big dollars on a headset that might not match them in terms of audio quality and more specifically, music playback quality. In that case the MDrill Dome isn’t just a functional upgrade, but a cost-effective one when compared to the cost of a premium headset. You could also use it to replace a poor quality or even failed headset mic. If you’re gaming and chatting over discord, or discussing your team tactics in-game, then a clear voice will definitely be appreciated.
Thronmax Accessories that add functionality and enhance your recordings
A simple table-mounted mic is suitable for a Skype call or conference call, but if you’re broadcasting, you’ll want your mic positioned to capture your voice without picking up background noises. The same goes for instrument recording. You need a quality boom that positions the mic to maximise pickup. The S1 Caster boom arm is simple to install and user friendly. There’s no need for any installation tools, and its 360-degree rotation offers unlimited versatility.
If you’re looking for something a bit more affordable, the scissor design S3 Zoom Boom arm is a great option. Both are compatible with a broad range of mics from other manufacturers too, not just those from Thronmax.
If you’re serious about your recordings, Thronmax offer accessories that help you to get the most out of them. Consider the Thronmax Expert Shock Mount. It’s designed to isolate microphones from shocks and vibrations. Its 5/8 mount means it’s compatible with a broad range of mics.
If you’re recording vocals, you’ll want to consider a pop filter which helps to eliminate the plosives and changes or variations in air movement that are common to singing. Also, it will protect your expensive microphone from saliva droplets that can easily damage a microphone over a period of time.
A quality microphone and the right accessories will breathe new life into your recordings. Forget about onboard webcam, laptop or phone mics! A Thronmax microphone will add quality and that touch of professionalism to your content, no matter if you’re recording voice, vocals or even instruments.
