AKG C 414 B-XL II is a recording mic that can be used as well for live performances.
It uses a condenser technology that gives a wide dynamic range and a rich sound.

OVERALL OPINION

The thing that I like most about it is how well it captures the recording, it can be used to record various type of musical instruments and still capture all the overtones, which I find very importantly in terms of mixing and arranging.

Another great features of this product is that it adds some warmth and bite to the vocals that can make a huge difference in some more rocky songs or ballads.
AKG C 414 B-XL II is a pretty expensive mic , it costs around 1000 $ however it can be as well as well by some Pro's or just some amateurs because the manual and the connection with your working soft is pretty easy and fast to manage.

A really unique features that this product has is the multiple patterns which is practically having several different mic's .

Precision and quality of the sound is very high,it has an ncredible Dynamic Range, with a low 6 dB-A self-noise, and a dynamic range of 152 dB.

It has nine switchable pickup patterns, three bass-cut filters and three pad levels to suit any type of sound input.
Peak Hold LEDs illuminate to display overload peaks that is really helpful when you're recording with an vocalist.

It comes with AKG's PF 80 pop filter, foam windscreen, spider-suspension shock mount, and foam-lined aluminum flight case, having said that, with a good preamp you can get a very deep yet pro sound quality.

Knowing what I know, I'm not quite sure if I would buy the mic again because it's quite expensive, however it money isn't a problem, you should check this mic and buy some high quality preamp, that way you can get those great sounds that you've searching for.
