SKU: LA320

    Product Description

    The LA-320 is packed with features. High and Low cut filters, a tube built in to the body of the mic and a vintage inspired transformer balanced output.

    With so many tricks under the hood, this is a real workhorse of a mic, grab it out of the box, plug it in and go. Each of the filters are independently controlled, so you can set the mic for the room. At home in the hands of a studio engineer or the bedroom producer the 1 inch diaphragm makes the LA-320 endlessly versatile.

    The History of Lauten Audio
    Early in the 21st Century Brian Loudenslager saw an opportunity. A pedal company that would bring a unique sound to a range of contemporary microphones built with utility and versatility in mind.
    He teamed up with Grammy nominated engineer and producer Mike Terry (The Eagles, Foo Fighters and Ash) and theoretical physicist Dr Charles Chen Ph.D.
    Their goal was a work horse microphone that brought a unique sound to an already saturated market. The Horizon was born and since then Lauten Audio have gone on to produce a whole range of mics that definitely met the original brief.

    Here’s what Lauten Audio say about the LA-320

    The Series Black LA-320 large diaphragm vacuum tube condenser microphone is a professional and versatile microphone for studio and vocal recording. This microphone features a 1 gold sputtered diaphragm with cardioid polar pattern, dual-triode vacuum tube, 120 Hz low-cut filter, 12 kHz high-cut filter, and transformer balanced output. The low-cut filter helps reduce boomy lows or low-end rumble; the high-pass filter helps to tame bright sources. These features help you to achieve excellent recordings regardless of your skill level.

    You are ready for this
    You’ve been recording for a while, you’re starting to learn the sonic difference between different microphones, and now you’re ready to enter the world of vacuum tubes. It’s time for you to let the Series Black LA-320 lead the way into that vintage vacuum tube tone you’ve heard all about. Designed for budding recordists, the LA-320 is the best entry into professional quality recordings with a tube microphone. We’ve made it easy to use and affordable for anyone to get serious about their sound.

    Independent filters clean your tone
    The high and low cut filters make solving common problems in home, basement or bedroom recording environments easy. The LA-320 features two independent filters located on the microphone and easy to engage via switches located on the front of the microphone. If the room or source is boomy, or you have low-end rumble from outside sources like road noise, furnace, air conditioner etc., turn on the low-cut filter and eliminate the problem. Use the high-cut to roll-off above 12k and tame a bright room or a bright source. What’s even cooler is you can use both filters at the same time resolving many problems before the recording hits your hard drive.

    Incredible price performance ratio
    Inside the LA-320 is a 1 inch pressure gradient true-condenser capsule and dual-triode vacuum tube inspired by those used in classic German microphones. Don’t be fooled by the affordability, the LA-320 features high quality components often found in much more expensive microphones. We have used our years of experience to create the best performance for the price of any large diaphragm vacuum tube microphone. Any budding engineer is sure to be pleased with the microphone.

    Fully equipped and ready for recording
    The LA-320 comes fully equipped to get you recording with great results fast. Each microphone includes a classic inspired spider shock mount to isolate the microphone from vibrations, a quality 5-pin tube microphone cable, custom, stable, dedicated power supply with a selectable mains voltage for use in all countries (100, 115v, 230v etc.), and a durable hard case to keep your microphone safe and clean when not in use.

    This is exactly what I had hoped for. The sound is clear and detailed, highs are bright but smooth. It is quite sensitive but is coping very well with my room acoustics. I could not be happier :-)
