If your budget doesn't have room in it for every microphone you want (and let's face it, few people's do) then you're going to love Antares's Mic Mod EFX. If you were making music back in 2000, then chances are that you recall Antares's original Microphone Modeler plug-in. That legendary plug-in made heads turn here at Sweetwater, and engineers everywhere were simply blown away by what it could do. Prepare to be blown away all over again by Mic Mod EFX. This amazing plug-in is so simple to use and effective, it almost seems too good to be true.
First, you load Mic Mod EFX up on one of your tracks and tell it which microphone you're actually using, as well as how close it is to the source, which pattern it's set to, and whether or not it has a low cut filter on. Next, you tell Mic Mod EFX which microphone you wish you were using and specify the same details. The effect is astonishing! Thanks to Antares's Spectral Shaping Tool technology, you can make your handheld dynamic microphone sound just like a high-dollar tube condenser or a rare ribbon, and the only one who will know the truth is you. You can even use Mic Mod EFX live to take the sound of your favorite fragile studio mic onstage.

Had VO tracks that were recorded on a less flattering mic.
Now we have a really usable tube sound. Love it

The draw back is it only works in 32 bit... read more [+] mode with Logic 9, it works in a 64 bit session but you need to use the bridge software to convert it to 32 bit from 64 bit. works fine by using the bridge but, it would be nice to be in 64 bit !!!! I am sure it will be some day! close [-]
Mic Modeler fills a niche
by Eric Broviak from NE OhioThe Mic Modeler does exactly what it says it does which can be a rare thing. When used on medium and lower quality mics, it can give the illusion of a much better frequency response. Certainly, it c... read more [+]an't add detail that was not originally captured. With high quality mics, it allows the user to change the tonal characteristics (say for example from an Equitek 1000 to an RCA 44). That's pretty cool. It really shines with instruments taken direct where you can experiment with different settings to get the desired sound. My favorite is the Royer ribbon on a bass guitar. The model warms it up without being boomy and seems to do a better job than EQ at making a sound I like. The proximity controls may be a bit overstated but allow real control of the low end. It is important to set the input control correctly so the modeler can do its thing. Overall, a great tool in the arsenal that adds subtlety when correctly applied or really changes the sound if you recorded something with a U87 and model it down to an SM57. close [-]
