If you’ve been following The Recording Revolution for any length of time now, you may be aware of my stance on music gear: I want value for my money and never want to overpay if something more affordable will get the job done just as well. This is especially true when it comes to microphones. You just don’t need to spend too much to get a great microphone for your home studio. That being said, today’s review of the Editors Keys SL150 only proves my point more as it is a solid offering for today’s home studio owners. Let’s take a look.
Who Is Editors Keys?
Editors Keys is a company based out of England that specializes in adhesive shortcut keyboard sticker sets and Silicone Covers for major software programs like Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, Final Cut, Photoshop, etc. Basically these keyboard products help you edit faster. Since 2009 they’ve stepped into the home recording realm with their “Studio Series” line of microphones, portable vocal booths, pop filters, and other accessories.
Mark at Editors Keys was kind enough to send me their SL150 microphone so I would have a chance to use it and formulate an opinion. He probably figured my readers would find it a great option for their own studios (He’d be right, by the way). After checking out the review, head over to EditorsKeys.com to see the SL150 and all the other great products they offer.
How I Reviewed It
From the moment I opened up the SL150 I wanted to use it in a “real” setting, so I wrote a song, plugged in the mic, and just sang through it. That’s exactly what I use microphones for and that’s how I wanted to test this thing. How did it hold up compared to what I normally use in my studio? The short answer: beautifully.
Instead of just doing a written review I decided to show you the microphone in action. I want you guys to be able to hear it for yourselves to you can know exactly what I’m hearing and make your own decision. Below is the video review of the SL150. Check it out for yourself.
