Shootout – Universal Audio OX Amp Top Box versus Shure SM57 mic

Out of curiosity and having a certain taste of provocation, The Guitar Channel presents you an unusual shoutout between the Ox Amp Top Box from Universal Audio and a timeless Shure SM57 microphone. A kind of David against Goliath fight in the field of sound recording!

The goal of the game is more to show the different renderings that can be obtained rather than cloning the SM57 absolutely in the OX. So for the video below here is the detail of the configurations used.
