Dude. No.

Would you sell any classic piece of hardware for a focusrite liquid channel? A roland mic mod?

In a few years, the Manley will still be a great sounding, useful, well made tool that retains its value.

No. Why would you? I love my Manley and instead of selling just add another mic to your arsenal

A software controlled mic is going to have a time when it stops being useful. That is not true of a well cared for "standard" microphone.

How many have used and heard the Townsend mic who have responded so far? I would sell the Manley and purchase an even better mic. I'm sure the Townsend is a great tool, however without hearing it I would have to put the mic through its paces before I would consider selling anything I know and use daily for it, esp. a ref c. Give the Townsend a spin you may very well like it and find it does exactly what you need and more, but don't sell anything you use and like before hand

Is it that much of a hardship to mute a channel and swap out a mic? No mic works for everything, that's why we acquire mics. Horses for courses.

I only divorce gear that isn't working for me. Otherwise, I group it all together like an orgy. Some see more action than others....
