Rockville RCM01 Microphone User Manual

Rockville RCM01 Microphone User Manual

The RCM01 was designed for crystal clear capturing of vocals, acoustic and amplified instruments, as well as room reverb. The frequency pick up pattern makes this microphone amazing in studio applications. Its large frame and metal construction make the RCM01 tough enough for live sound applications as well!

The RCM01 can be used in multiple ways. You can connect this to the phantom power of your mixer or you can connect it directly to your computer sound card. We include a cable to connect it to your mixer as well as a cable to connect the mic to your computer!

This microphone is made of metal. It is very rugged and tough like you would expect from any Rockville product. This microphone has a large diaphragm which is what enables our mic to deliver a wider range of high and low frequencies than our competitors. Our frequency range is tested at 30Hz – 20kHz! The mic sounds crystal clear with no distortion!

The PCB (circuit board) uses surface mounted components which is the same method the expensive brands use. We use only top components that under-go extreme testing by our own audio engineers.

The last thing you should know is that our product is very sturdy. When you are recording, you do not want even the slightest noises coming from your mic. Microphones consists of a casing inside of which there is a cartridge. You definitely do not want that cartridge moving around. We made sure to adjust our mechanism so as to ensure the cartridge is firmly in place and not creating any unwanted noises.

It is important to position the microphone directly in line (on axis) with the person speaking/singing or instrument (or other sound source) to achieve the best frequency response. For use in speaking/singing applications, the ideal placement for the microphone is directly in front of the person speaking/singing. The same placement is optimal when micing an instrument such as an acoustic guitar, drums or piano. Experiment with different mic placements to find the best sound for your particular setup.
