The real epiphany with this mic came for me when I recorded a vocal with singer-songwriter Sophie Koh. When we listened back to the first take we both had the same breathless reaction – the P12 sounded absolutely sensational on her voice. There was plenty of body and midrange clarity but the top-end had a luxurious airiness that no other mic in my collection comes close
to. We quickly found ourselves using that sound as the benchmark for all our previous vocal recordings.
