The C414B-ULS is a good all purpose mic. Dark and full sounding, it is a nice choice for overheads, orchestral recordings, acoustic guitar plus vocals when in figure 8 mode, and on rare occasions, vocals.
The polar pattern, filter and pad controls make it really versatile. Still, not quite the same as a good old C12. And no, the VR is not a C12. Why AKG, why?
