We've known that counterfeit mics are available for years - the SM57 and SM58 dodgy mics being well known, but a friend sent me an SM7B to try.
Things didn't go that well, to be honest - but not in the way you might imagine. One thing is clear, you do need to be on the ball. In the video, I've run through what I found, and you can hear the genuine SM7B against the fake.
I found an Aria Pro 2 guitar with a Roland Pickup, and the GR-33 synth - I've panned the room sound to one channel and the synth to the other. Not really sure on this one, but I think it dates to the late 90s, and has a truly uninspiring set of very odd sounds.
This might be interesting - we produce a lot of show tracks. Mostly used as click tracks in stage type shows - for where you need extra musical parts you simply cannot do live, or as emergency tracks where a band member might simply be unable to sing due to illness - the usual coughs and colds, or where simple medical issues make certain thing impossible.
