    Jared, just a thought.

    For the Slate VMS I think it's not important if the mic is the flattest of all mics although the goal was to be super flat. But once Slate had a particular mic design that he could get consistently reproduced then the software end knows what in going into it and can then work with that signal appropriately. If you found a flatter mic it would still be a different mic and not what the software is expecting. It's the whole package that makes it work.

    So the real quality question is, is the mic and pre-amp manufacturing process consistent enough? My guess is Steve is the type of guy who is pretty on top of that. I don't know. He just projects that personality in his videos.

    IMHO. Not an expert here at all.
