Reminds me of effects that emulate tube microphones. Plug in your Sure
SM58, select Brauner VM1 and an algorithm will generate everything
missing by the SM58, based on the information provided by the SM58. This
on the other hand reminds me of Jerry Bruckheimer and Co.'s scientific
soaps. An observation camera shows somebody from behind and the digital
forensics guys use an algorithm that calculates the view showing the
face of the person, whose face wasn't recorded. Preparing an eggplant is
easy to do, handling algorithms faking abilities also is easy to do.
