    Buyer's Guide: Audio Plugins
    No matter your personal preference, the world of pro audio has continued to move towards digital. Tape machines have transitioned to DAWs, analog consoles have slimmed down to control surfaces, and CDs have been replaced by streaming services. With little more than a laptop, you can create music that would have taken a team of professionals over a week in a world-class studio just 30 years ago, all thanks to the magic of audio plugins.

With the power to emulate some of the most iconic mics of all time (all within the few clicks of a mouse), modeling microphones are one easy way to pull together an arsenal of legendary sounds at a great price.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
