This raises the question of which is more desirable to have electronic
eq built into a mic, or to add eq in post.
One problem of having built in eq is that it is not possible for the eq
to be ideal for every recording situation, so it may be necessary to
eq it again in post anyway, which could involve undoing what the
built in eq is achieving.
An advantage though, of having built in eq, is if it happens to be just
right for a particular situation, then the signal can be monitored
without guessing as to what the final recording will sound like.
