I also have a pair of audio technica 4041's for oh and acoustic duties, as well as various shure, ev and akg dynamic mics, but would really like a pair of ldc's. The 414 has been a great utility mic for me, but I do find the sound a little 'vanilla' if you know what I mean, and it is very tempting to be able to replace it with a pair of mics.

My only concern with the mk1 is for my vocals, which can be a little cutting in the 2-3 kHz area if I'm not careful. I have a feeling the IV might suite my voice better, but the mk1 does seem like the most all purpose mic. Quite the predicament haha.
In other words I believe an mk1 would be a safe bet. However the IV may be better suited for you specifically.
