Mic Mod EFX

Classic Microphone Modeler

Now the mics you own can sound like the mics you wish you owned.

Mic Mod EFX

Mic Mod EFX is the microphone-modeling tool that makes the microphones you own sound like the microphones you wish you owned.

Spice up your tracks with models of vintage mics from Neumann, Coles and others plus modern boutique microphones. Our patented Spectral Shaping Tool™ technology gives you precise digital models of over 100 legendary microphones. Simply tell Mic Mod EFX what microphone you are actually using and what microphone you’d like it to sound like.

Not only do Mic Mod EFX’s models reproduce all of the subtle sonic characteristics that make each microphone unique, but they also give you control of each mic’s specific options. Does the mic have a low cut filter? If so, it’s in the model. Wind screen on or off? Close or far placement? Each option results in the same sonic effect that it would have with the actual mic. For that final touch of perfection, you can even add some tasty tube saturation.

Mic Mod EFX gives you a huge virtual microphone collection that you can use for recording, mixing and even in live performance to get the sound of mics you would never consider using on stage. It’s also a great tool for broadcast and podcasting applications.

If you’ve ever wished for an extensive collection of exotic mics (but shuddered at the cost), then Mic Mod EFX is the plug-in for you. Not only do Mic Mod EFX’s models reproduce all of the subtle sonic characteristics that make each microphone unique, but they also give you control of each mic’s specific options. Does the mic have a low cut filter? If so, it’s in the model. Wind screen on or off? Close or far placement? Each option results in the same sonic effect that it would have with the actual modeled mic. And for that final touch of perfection, you can even add some tasty tube saturation.

Source Mic and Modeled Mic
Simply select the mic you’re using (or used during your original recording) and the mic you want it to sound like.
Proximity
Proximity Effect is a bass boost that results from placing a directional mic in close proximity to a signal source (e.g., a singer’s lips). With Mic Mod EFX’s Proximity controls, you can actually create the effects of different mic distances based on the specific physical properties of each individual modeled mic.
Low Cut Filter
If your source mic has a low cut filter, enter its setting in the Source Mic Low Cut menu. If your selected modeled mic has a low cut filter, you can model the effects of any of its settings with the Modeled Mic Low Cut menu.
Pickup Pattern
If your source mic has variable pickup patterns, enter the selected pattern in the Source Mic Pattern menu. If your selected modeled mic has variable pickup patterns, you can experiment with the effects of any of its patterns with the Modeled Mic Pattern menu.
Tube Saturation
Based on the same technology as Antares’ famed WARM Tube Saturation Generator, the Tube Saturation control lets you give your track the warmth of a high-quality tube pre-amp.
