Just having one really oversteps the mark.

That's not absolutely accurate . . . . I've made very good use of the case and wouldn't mind another . . . case that it is :)

I blush at the memory of just how utterly ignorant I was when I allowed myself to be convinced that a c1000 was, I quote, 'Just perfect for you because it can record acoustic guitars and vocals' :headbang:

Thankfully that was over 20 years ago and as that's the only purchasing decision I really cringe about , I got off pretty lightly :)

Isn't there a box, or a piece of software that claims to "make any microphone sound like a U87" If it works with a C1000 then they deserve the Nobel Prize...

There's things like the Slate: https://www.slatedigital.com/virtual-microphone-system/
but they're starting with something a bit better than the C1000 :D
