Good Mic

It is interesting playing around with the mic-collection-software, but mostly, I end up using the mic "pure", often switching the phase of the rear-side and summerize rear and front more or less, a very good microphone! To be honest: I haven`t expecting this, when I get it in the course of a promation. I own some of the "originals", like sm69, U47, 421 etc., but the sphere is a very usable tool, I won`t miss it anymore!

Amazing Mic!

I am very happy with this guy! There is nothing in this price point that can compete with this mic and I would dare to say this mic can compete with mics 3 x its price. It sounds soooo good! I would also like to add that the build quality is second to none. It is built to last. Well done UA and Townsend Labs!

Game Changer

All I can say is that paired with an Apollo Solo and the LUNA recording system my vocal recordings have elevated by leaps and bounds. I upgraded from a focusrite scarlet 2i2 3rd gen and Aston Microphones Origin recording in Cubase and mixing in Studio One. I’m new to mixing and the old set up produced okay enough sound quality I’m sure if I was more experienced would probably have produced even better results. But once I saved up and got The Apollo Solo and Sphere microphone there is a noticeable difference in sound quality. I don’t have to do as much processing to get a great sound. I cut Cubase out of my process and only use Studio One to strip silence, align vocals, automation, and trackspacer for Luna doesn’t have these functions and trackspacer can only side chain one track at a time.

I blended an 800-G with a 251, 12, and 103 mic (3 different presets) and use the API vision channel strip because the expander on it cuts all background noise and gives me cleaner recordings. The Sphere LX is worth the money especially with a good interface. If you have a decent setup this mic will definitely elevate your game

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!
