LCT 040 MatchAustrian company Lewitt has home studios in its sights with the launch of its most affordable condenser mic, the LCT 040 Match.

The Lewitt LCT range combines innovation with hard-wearing craftsmanship in a line of small and large-diaphragm condenser and tube microphones offering a modern alternative to older, traditional designs. The LCT 040 Match offers the definition and accuracy on which the LCT range is built, but with a new stripped-back, ergonomic design for maximum positioning flexibility. Inside a compact and sturdy metal housing, the custom-designed capsule is optimised with fast transient response for the qualities of acoustic instruments from acoustic guitars to drums and strings.

The LCT 040 Match stereo pair uses a custom-developed process that extensively analyses the microphones, and couples those exhibiting identical behaviour. This introduces new possibilities for studios striving to achieve the best possible stereo recordings of drum overheads, acoustic guitars or even choirs for a price not normally associated with this degree of precision.

Available as a single pencil mic and a stereo pair package, meanwhile. the Lewitt LCT 140 Air features exceptional off-axis sound suppression, pre-attenuation and low-cut filter. Its Sound toggle allows users to switch between a linear response or a nuanced, ‘airy’ mode for open, more characterful recordings. 

The LCT 040 Match  costs US$99, while the LCT 040 Match stereo pair retails for US$189. The LCT 140 Air will debut at $149.
