I did this little shootout the other day to see which one I liked better on my vocal. To me, it's not so clear cut. There are things I like about both of them. There is one I'm leaning toward, but I would really appreciate some input from anyone. Both were recorded on the same take, and aside from an 80hz high pass filter, there is absolutely no eq on either. I got the volumes set as even as I could and there is also a very small amount of verb too.
Again, I would very much appreciate any opinions. Thanks.

I just uploaded both of them as mp3's, so now they download very quickly. (Trust - A) (Trust - B)
I also uploaded both of them to myspace, to avoid downloading at all. Of course, this gives the least sound quality. They are labeled 'Trust A' and 'Trust B'. Here's the link.

Ok....Didn't really get the participation that I'd hoped for on that one. Anyway, I realized that the guitar part in the song was skewing the perception of the mics. Mostly because it was recorded on my old interface, and the vox were done on the new one (the pre's on the old one are thin sounding in comparison to my new interface). Since the 4033 has a thinner sound than the mod, I think it sat better in the mix with that guitar part, giving it an unfair advantage. I wanted to be fair to JJ audio, and make sure that anyone who actually listened to the song understood that (if they didn't already). I did end up doing a comparison with just a naked vocal, there's not even any compression or eq on it. So if anyone is interested, here it is. BTW...I'm not really interested in any feedback this time, just wanted to right a wrong. (4033) (JJ Audio V67 mod)

Usually when you post samples for comparison, it can take several days to get some quality feedback.
People have things to do and it may be awhile before they can give a good listen, much less good return.

Sidetrack -
I also have questions about preferred methods for posting tracks. Should we have some sort of standard?
Myspace? Soundclick? YouSendIt? Sendspace? MP3? WAV?.......
