Details

Please note that this product requires an "iLok" USB smart key, which is not included. You may use an existing iLok, or purchase a new one.

Mic Mod EFX is a modern incarnation of Antares' legendary Microphone Modeler plug-in. First introduced in 2000, Microphone Modeler won that year's TEC Award for Outstanding Technical Achievement in Software Signal Processing and garnered rave reviews from musicians, engineers, producers and the music industry press.

A few examples:
"It proved to be an amazing and powerful tool to quickly enhance any mono source I could throw at it....What it provides musicians and producers is an amazing sculpting and sweetening tool. This fact, and its sheer ease of use, earn it a Key Buy...Mic Modeler never ceased to amaze me.
- John Krogh, Keyboard, September 2000

"The affordable Microphone Modeler is a great tool for DAW-based personal studios with limited mic resources. It sounds great and is perfect for everything from mixing to tracking. Microphone Modeler definitely gets my vote as one of the most innovative plug-ins of the year."
- Eric Hawkins,Electronic Musician, October 2000

“[My engineer Alan Meyerson] had experimented with the plug-in on the new Ridley Scott film Gladiator for composer Hans Zimmer, running the entire orchestra through Mic Modeler. For me, he was using the Mic Modeler for enhancing string samples. All I can say is that the difference was profound and wonderful. Mic Modeler is becoming one of my favorite plug-ins to make everything sound more vibrant and interesting.”
- Jeff Rona, Film Composer

Now, Mic Mod EFX brings you all that sonic goodness in an affordable, easy-to-use package for today's digital recording systems. With over 125 microphone models included, Mic Mod EFX truly makes the mics you own sound like the mics you wish you owned.

Now the Mics You Own Can Sound Like the Mics You Wish You Owned
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.

Using our patented Spectral Shaping Tool™ technology, we've created precise digital models of a wide variety of historical classic and exotic microphones. Simply tell Mic Mod EFX what microphone you are actually using and what microphone you'd like it to sound like. It's as simple as that.

With over 125 microphones models included in Mic Mod EFX, you can afford to record each track through a model of the specific mic that will best produce that ideal sound you're looking for. Or use it in live performance to get the sound of mics you'd never consider using on stage. You can even use it during mixdown to effectively change the mic on an already recorded track.

Not only do the 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.

Here's how easy it is...
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.
