No I'm not engineering big names I'm only 22. A guy can dream though.
SOS articles aren't trustworthy? I always thought they were a good source.
As for hearing the difference between dynamic and condenser on a master i would be willing to chalk that up to young naivety, though i do feel there is a level of detail that differs from one to the other. I have experimented comparing the sm7 to the u87ai and they sit in a mix very differently.
I'm here to learn so don't be afraid to drop me some knowledge.
Don't be a sheep. Use whatever sounds nice.
Being a "sheep" as you call it is how i put food on the table, many low enders wont use a studio if there are no neumanns or protools, they expect industry standards and will take their business else where if you can't provide them. I wouldn't be surprised if this was the same for bigger studios as well.
Exactly what it is....
Monkey see, monkey do.
Dehumanization is great right? Take your childish behavior elsewhere.
