That's called trying to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. I think much of it involves missing information (frequecy response) and that's pretty hard to fudge.

With some work you could certainly give the ME66 (and it's ME67 cousin) a fuller, richer sound. Heck, if Hollywood can create little goblins good enough to win Oscars, certainly this too is possible.

But an equally significant difference, as I alluded in my article, is something that you can't capture with sample clips. I, too, am not a real sound tech and won't wax rhapsodically about microhones. But the 416 just handles most situations more smoothly. Whereas you need to be very conscious of where the ME67 is pointed at all times, the ME416 responds almost as if it had eyes. OK, I'm going a bit overboard, but those who have worked with it probably know exactly what I mean.
