Good enough to get a backup!

Everything is true, nothing more I can add other than I can't wait until their next updates and/or new version! I haven't tested against the actual mics other than the online mic kitchen test and I couldn't tell a difference plus even without the emulations - the features alone does it! I've had one since Summer 2019 and a second one is on the way due to that great Apollo X rack series bundle that actually came with a free one!! Plus this mic has went down about $300 since I got it - y'all better get one.

Sphere L22 is my 'Go To" mic now!

I had been eyeing this mic for about a year and then decided to "jump in"...the only thing I can say is, why didn't I do this sooner?!?! Will be purchasing 2 more for the vocal booth. This is DEFINITELY a sound investment (no pun intended)!

No regrets recording yay!!

Tonal quality doesn't work? try another model. Wished to have recorded a little closer or further on some spots? automate the proximity. This mic is so flexible. Must-have for any producer. Only downside is the extra cost of a 2nd channel of the matching preamp.

Great Mic for the $$$

Really an amazing microphone! Sounds great on its own and the models are discrete, yet add a really nice character for a lot of different applications.

My favorite mic I own is a Flea 47 - it adds incredible magic to any track - especially vocals. I bought the Sphere thinking I could potentially replace my flea, but it does not compare. The depth and quality just isn’t quite there with the Sphere.

Probably not a fair comparison when you consider it’s about a third of the price of the Flea. With that said I would highly recommend this mic to everyone! I bought it thinking I could potentially save some money by selling/replacing my Flea, but I ended up spending extra money because I’m going to keep them both!

So versatile, And better than the original mics..

I own u87, c414 and many other microphones. Even without the modeling, the sphere sounds very good. Modeling adds countless possibilities.

The best modeling mic on the market!

Wel, the L22 is one of the best investments in my studio. Brilliant how you can customize every microphone, very flexible and the big wil is the nearly zero latency when you use the L22 in combination with the Apollo core interface. Also I was surprised with the latest update and the reflection filter you can use.
Great for podcasts.

Just bought a second one!

This microphone sounds so good without any modeling at all. I love that this system takes the approach of starting with an already very pleasing signal captured by the capsules so that the software has plenty to work with adding saturation and other processing that is applied after. I've used other systems before that have a very average to poor sounding microphone that is supposed to sound just like the real thing after adding the plugin modeling, but inevitably falls short. I've enjoyed using it alongside all of my other microphones in the studio that I've just purchased a second one! The UAD ecosystem really opens up the possibilities for this microphone and I'm grateful for it. If you're on the fence, don't even hesitate. This is a workhorse microphone built sound amazing and last a long time.

Microphone nirvana!

Such a great concept and fantastic sounding mic. Brilliantly executed with its supporting software. Took less than a week before I decided to get a second one.
