Is Sphere The Future of Microphone Technology? Try Out The Plug-In For Free

It's an impossible question to answer outright, but judging by user reactions the new Townsend Sphere L22 mic and plug-in system could be the most advanced mic modelling system to date.  

We were intrigued by the arrival of Townsend Sphere L22. It smashed its IndieGoGo crowdfunding campaign by 547% to raise $214,684 (they wanted $40,000)! 

Now they’ve just made a free demo version of the plug-in for Sphere so anyone can try it out on pre-recorded audio before making the commitment to buy the Sphere L22 system.

Here’s a brief description about Sphere:

"The Sphere™ system consists of a high precision dual channel microphone, which when paired with the included Sphere DSP plug-in (UAD, VST, AU, AAX Native) accurately models the response of a wide range of mics, including transient response, harmonics, proximity effect and three-dimensional polar response."
