Using The Periscope

In order to get the sound anywhere as close to The Periscope it would take a massive amount of time to dial your rig in. And probably you would not be quite there anyway. The Periscope can be thrown anywhere giving you ready made sound right away.

Immediacy. ”Fix it in the mix” method is so passé that it hurts any given engineer’s soul. The Periscope is providing immediate results matching your vision of the sound right at the time of recording. 

Cleaning nasty artifacts generated by parallel compression, created by duplicating a track, is just a waste of time. Focus on the essential instead – the sound of the music.

Hell yeah. The capsule and circuit can handle painful amount of sound pressure but be aware that due to circuit design the distortion factor will be quite noticeable.

For sure you can. But.

As the compressor is squeezing the shit out of it and the capsule is omni-directional, be prepared for some serious feedback especially in small venues where the mic is close to the PA system.

In big venues like arenas and stadiums, the PA system is most likely hanging far away from The Periscope so you’ll have good chances to achieve enough gain before feedback.
