legit uses for mic modeller?

Discussion in 'Recording' started by transparency_76, Apr 6, 2005.

  1. While fun to tinker with I have never really thought this product by Antares had any legit uses for audio recording, outside of tinkering in the home studio. Does anyone find it to be a truly helpful product for recording?

    I guess my bias is based on the idea that your source amterial is your source material. You can compress it, EQ it, add effects to it, and the like, but the quality of the recording that you get from an SM58 is always going to be just that. It seems to me that all this program really does is change the EQ around a bit, but I thought I would throw it out there to see if anyone else had a different opinion.

    Your're on the right track IMO - they're pretty much good for nothing. There is more than EQ to the process (convolution) and it may be possible to impart a bit of C12 to a C414, but not to a 57.
