I'm still looking for a "modern" mic, in my a mind a "modern" mic is very transparent, bright ( I prefer bright mics than darker one for my voice), it can sit easily in a dense/dance mix (with electronic instruments for examples).
1 modern mic I experiended by myself and still like, even sometimes it's unforgiving by definition as it's transparent :
Braune phantom AE
some other I guess they are "modern" by listening to demo/shootout or reviews:
peluso 22 251
Mojave ma-200 (not sure for this one)
As you can see in this list the prices and caracteristics are very different ...
What mic would you add in this list and do you agree with the one I put above (if not why ?)
Just for your info my budget is around 1500 $ for a new mic but that's not the goal of this thread, I just want to better understand your opinions and learn some experiences
thanks a lot,
