I'm filming a whole series of videos for Halfords at the moment as a Think Bikes project. I've been looking for an excuse to buy one of those XLR -> USB adapters for a while and this was it. Maplin has a ProSound unit for £20 - very reasonable if you ask me.
The sound quality is very good, but the biggest disappointment is the delay - I can't listen to myself through the headphones whilst I'm singing because there is around a 240ms delay - by my trial and error calculations.
Another project I've been working on, was talking about doing a viral song - using the Avenue Q "Everyone's a Little Bit Racist" as a base for the parody. So, whilst slightly bored with doing voiceover and wanting to test out the adapter - I did the first verse of the song in a couple of takes. The hardest part was doing the male voice as I had to pull my larynx down quite far to get the "froggy" sound required. Couldn't do that all day, I can tell you.
