    Good shotgun article.

    I ended up going with a Rode NTG4, mainly because it's the best I found for less than $400 and I wanted to save some $ for windscreening accessories (e.g., Blimp). It's great...

    That's especially true in traditional tremolo applications, where the changes are too fast to parse, and I don't expect any really useful differences between curves and straight lines in that mode....
