No, the Rode Procaster does not include a shock mount. However, the RM2 stand mount is included. Rode's PSM1 Shockmount (B&H # ROPSM1) is available separately.

How close do you have to be to the mic when recording vocals?
Asked by: Anonymous
The manual says 2 inches or less. I agree -- voices are awesome at that distance and background sounds minimized or eliminated.

question

Will I need a cloudlifter to get good sound out of this mic? I was planning on using it with a Focusrite Scarlette Solo.
Asked by: Peter
I use the Procaster with my H4n Pro recorder for podcasts and voiceover work, and, for me, no preamp is needed. I speak relatively softly, so I have the mike level set fairly high on the H4n Pro -- 85-90 (out of 100), and that regularly hits -12 on the meters, which sounds perfect. I LOVE this microphone!

question

Can I use this mic to record vocals for music? Im curious.
Asked by: Luis G. B.
The Procaster has a distinct tone that is in my opinion professional broadcast quality. If that is the tone you are going for then yes. Of course a mixer and post can reasonably adjust for most desired tone. It's an awesome microphone!

question

I know this mic has an internal pop filter, but does anyone use an external as well? If so, what are you using?
Asked by: John K.
The Procaster is an excellent mic. and the internal pop-filter seems to function extremely well. However, I purchased an Auray PFN-6 which I use with my some of my other microphones.
