The "End All' and "Be All" of Microphones

Never knew much about mics in general. Always wanted a condenser mic and almost pulled the trigger on a Mojave. Fortunately, and just in time, I saw the LX and watched all the videos and was immediately sold. Recently UA had these discounted and I knew it was time. As it happened, the plugins went on sale a couple of weeks later. With all the coupons UA was emailing me, I ended up getting the Bill Putman collection. That means LX users get ALL the mic models included with the DLX. Turns out, more discount coupons arrived in my inbox and I purchased the Ocean Ways as well. With 58 mic models now in hand, I have hundreds of thousands of dollars in vintage microphones all in one place for less than $1000. This is a total game changer! Buy it and don't look elsewhere... you won't regret it! Wish we could use dual mode blending BP with OW, but beggars can't be choosers!

This already made a huge difference in recording my vocals!!! They sound so much clearer and crisper right out the box. The isoSphere software is so easy and intuitive to use. Still haven't tried out all the different presets yet but i definitely plan to. Thanks so much UA!
