thumbsup thanks a lot for your expertise and your detailed answer ! really appreciated.
I think a lot of the 'modern' thing is a question of how you use the mics.
I think that's what I wanted to read, the source and the way the mixing is done is far more important I guess (certainly some urban pop songs were recorded with vintage U47 mics...).
From my experience I realized that I like vocal mics on the left top of this chart area around the c800G, peluso 2251, brauner phantom, AT 4050...
Maybe with age I will consider some darker microphone (it's like the first glass of wine at 15 years old, I prefered soda
) will check as well the rode k2 mics.
For your info my currents are :
I used to have an oktava 319 modded
apex 460 modded ( I borrow it to a friend)
By the way do you know some spots in London where we can test some mics as I'm going with my girl for 6 days to London (I promised to avoid music shops and concentrate on her
but I can fake a relaxing afternoon and jump out
Thanks a lot for your support,
