Kevin W Smith, 09.02.2018
It's amazing what this mic system can do and it sounds excellent on everything I've tried. Without any emulation it's a really good microphone, and the emulations are legit. Ocean Way collection for UAD users offers even more options but "out of the box" it's fantastic. Excellent build quality, looks great, sounds great. This is the future of microphones. It doesn't come with mic preamps, but very flat and clean preamps aren't expensive anymore. You probably already have some (it needs 2).

Mine is paired with a UAD Apollo Twin Quad which lets me use different preamp sounds from their channel strips. My current favorite for this mic is the Neve 88RS, but without all that it sounds amazing on it's own; all the options and emulations in the Sphere plugin still work and sound great with just the interface mic preamps.
