    I have only an opinion to share. It seems that unless you are trying to over dub onto an old track that used one of these old mic then the relentless pursuit of an exact match don't make much sense to me. Further, I believe it is a fact that few of these old mics sound like same as another of the same make.

    I think what Slate is really selling is a package that offers a variety of great sounding front end for recording with all the proven characteristics of the past greats. The bottom line is can you get great sounding recording from this product? Further, there is a ton of budget and an time conveniences built in.

    For a small studio this seems like the ultimate mic to set up in a vocal booth on a permanent basis.
