mock communities selection

I would like to ask your opinion for the selection of mock communities for 16S or WGS seq for microbiome analysis. There are many DNA mock commmunities available from both ZymoBIOMICS and ATCC and they differ in many ways. Some are logarithmic and some have equal percentages from every bacteria species. Would a logarithmic community help more for the identification of errors in sequencing and library preparation than equal percentage communities?
Thank you very much!
