Yeah, I was really not trying to bag on the Joly modded clip.
FWIW, he did a stand up job on my 012's, and they sound great.
I have a CMC6 here that an employer of mine has given to me on indefinite loan. They loaned it to me for video work, along with some other things..mixer, porta brace, fishpole etc. I am expected of course to bring this stuff when I show up to do A1 work for them, but am allowed to use it at my place as well.
Anyway, long story short, after Michael did my mics, they sound of the same caliber as the Schoeps, but they are a little different. Some difference is to be expected, because straight away the pickup pattern is completely different on the Schoeps. Not to mention the circuit
When I asked him to mod the 012's, I simply wanted more clarity and air from them, and he did just that. They seem a bit quieter too.
All of that said, the CMC6 still sounds brighter, on every source
. This is not always what you are looking for though. On some things, the CMC6 gets put away cuz' it just sounds to thin for me. Too thin and like a microscope. Thinline acoustics and that mic just don't get along at all at my place. Talk about thin and anemic.
The fact that these low cost Russian mics could step up to the plate w/ the Schoeps though, this says something.
Just saying all of this to let it be known that I DO like the work Michael did for me, and the service was excellent. It's just that particular clip sounds stifled, muffled...whatever to me in this case.
I level matched as best I could in my DAW, and it still sounds that way to me. Could it just be that one
mic? Anyone else used the same mic that Michael modded, and this sample is not characteristic of theirs?
Just curious. I have been seeing that Tape Op ad for a while now. "HAVE THIS?....NEED THIS" I have been very curious as to what this would sound like at my place. However, if that clip is indicative of the sound of the 47 type capsule's sound w/ all mics, I would probably pass on this. So, is that clip's sound close to what anyone else is getting with Michael's V67g mod? Or is it just an oddball anomaly?
I wouldn't mind hearing another clip from another source if anyone has one.
