I already voted and preferred sample 1 but was curious if both pairs used the same large DPA windscreens and which pair was in front of or higher/lower than the other.

I used small schoeps windscreens and Andy used the dpa’s.

I look forward to listening and comparing both recordings.  Someone has already expressed my thought regarding what may or may not have been done with the recordings.  EQ?  Normalization? Etc.?  They should both be the same characteristics for a fair comparison.  Personally, I'd like to hear them completely raw, with the only alteration being to edit them to be the same bit/sample.

Nothing was done to either recording except the sample rate conversion and level matching.

I never touch my 24bit filesets anyway.

shouldn't have to :)

I know these quotes are old, but really?! I haven’t had a 41v recording that didn’t need eq in the low end to not sound shitty.

Never run 41v fob, only when I have a so so seat and/or the room is shit. Always need a low end bump. Sound good but too bright without EQ.

I run the mk41v FOB, mixed with a mk21/mk8 rig.
