Whenever I see a picture showing someone making a voice recording (such as voicing a cartoon character, looping for a movie, or reading text) I notice that they are using a large, spherical microphone. Is that just a big windscreen or is the microphone that big. What kind of microphone are they using. If you think it relates to a particular Shure product, which one?
You might be referring to the "popper-stopper" model PS-6 in front of the mic.
Typical recording mics are the Shure KSM series.
