Thanks for the revealing opportunity! Minor logistical issue: I think it would have been more effective to use that sign wave at a lower volume and not match the peaks but RMS. The volume differences were not subtle and required me to match the tracks significantly before I could make any useful judgement. It would give a better picture of the compression of the mics as well as more effective matching.

Re: the test results, like others, I found the contenders at times remarkably similar, and other times obviously different, usually in the direction of some emulations being brighter and cleaner than the originals, though not always. I don't remember any showing up in the opposite direction, though. A side benefit of the test was to highlight the differences between the original models, even if, in that context, the performances weren't the same.
