I was looking for a less expensive alternate for live micing app's than the AMT or Nuemann KM185. I assume other hypercardiod mics might sound comparable. I know the Oktava MC012 is a common sub for the KM185. Has anyone had any experience with these. Another is the Audix M1245hc, Elation KM201, or the Hebden CM1050c. I can't help thinking that for less precise (ae live) applications some of these mic's might be ideal.
