    Product Description

    Ara is AKG's latest microphone, designed for podcasters, content creators and musicians to capture either vocals or instruments at the highest quality level. Thanks to its dual-pickup pattern, you will be able to focus on one sound source or everyone in the room. The front is, in fact, a cardioid microphone, whilst front and back combined make for a multidimensional recording of the whole ambience.

    Ara is USB powered, so you can take it anywhere with you. Use it with the integrated base stand (included), on a desktop boom arm, or with a common microphone stand. If you're away from your laptop, you can get an OTG or Apple Camera adapter to use it with your mobile devieces.

    KEY FEATURES: 

    • Dual pickup pattern: Cardioid (Front) and Omni (Front + Back)
    • Can capture up to 24 bits and 96Hz for exceptional sound quality
    • USB-powered: plug and play into your computer, game consoles or smartphones (adapters not included) to start recording in no time,
    • Base stand included
    • Compact and lightweight, easy to carry around

    HERE'S WHAT AKG SAY ABOUT THE NEW ARA MICROPHONE:

    Pro-Grade, High-Quality Sound

    Record professional-quality audio at up to 24-bit, 96kHz resolution 
    for ultimate speech clarity and stunning vocal and instrument tracks. Gamers experience the thrills of fidelity that outperforms headsets, and videoconferencing is elevated with crystal-clear sound that’s far superior to built-in laptop or phone mics. And with a max SPL of 120 dB, there’s plenty of headroom for recording high-output instruments like drums, horns and electric guitars.

    Record Anything With Capsule Array Modes

    Ara provides two selectable pickup patterns for maximum versatility. The directional Front (cardioid) pattern captures sound directly in front of the mic while rejecting sound from other sides; it’s perfect for podcast hosts, bloggers, gamers, videoconferencing and miking instruments. The Front and Back (omni) pattern picks up sound evenly from all sides, making it ideal for capturing interviews with multiple speakers, tracking multiple singers and instruments, or recording ambient sounds on location.

    Simple to Connect, Simple to Set Up, Easy to Use

    Recording with Ara is plug-and-play simple. Connect directly to Mac and Windows computers and game consoles using a standard USB-C connector, to Android devices using an OTG USB adapter cable, and to iOS devices using an optional Apple Camera Adapter and a powered USB hub. Every function you need is easily accessible, including pattern selection, a mic mute button with LED indicator and a 3.5mm headphone jack for latency-free monitoring.

    Adaptable to Any Space

    Ara’s compact footprint and versatile mounting options make it ideal for both desktop use and studio recording scenarios. Set Ara on a desktop using the included yoke and base stand or attach to a boom arm or standard mic stand; use the included adapter for European mic stands.
