Lauten Audio LA-220Lauten Audio has expanded its line of microphones aimed at budding recordists with the Series Black LA-220 professional, solid-state, large-diaphragm true-condenser studio vocal microphone and the LA-120 pairing of professional, solid-state, small-diaphragm FET instrument condensers.

Both microphones are designed to give budding recordists an affordable entry into the world of professional sound recording.

The LA-220 features a US-made ultra-low-noise JFET amplifier, a 1-inch pressure gradient, diaphragm and a true-condenser capsule with cardioid polar pattern. The mic features independent 120Hz low-cut and 12kHz high-cut filters, a transformer-balanced output, and includes a spider-style shockmount.

The LA-120 mic package comes as a pair, and features interchangeable 17mm pressure gradient condenser cardioid and omni-directional capsules, US-made ultra-low-noise JFET amplifiers, 50HZ and 150Hz low-cut filters, 10kHZ and 15kHz high-cut filters, and a transformer balanced output. The dual mic package ships with a wooden box and hard mounts.

‘We are giving developing recordists two excellent new microphone options that complement each other, as well as the LA-320 vacuum tube condenser mic that is already available, also in the Series Black line,’ says Lauten Audio founder, Brian Loudenslager. ‘Our unique high- and low-cut filters take into consideration common problems in home, basement or bedroom recording environments, and make achieving great recording results easy for anyone.’

Both microphones feature two independent filters located on the microphone with easy to engage switches. If the room or source is boomy, or if there is low-end rumble from outside noise, recordists can turn on the low-cut filter and eliminate much of the problem. The high-cut filter can be used to help tame bright sources.

Both mic packages feature high-quality components often found in more expensive microphones: ‘We have again used our experience to create what we believe to be the best value of any professional microphones on the market today. With the classic inspired designs, ultra-low-noise JFETs, built-in filters, and included accessories, these microphone are sure to quickly become a popular choice for any recordists on any budget,’ Loudenslager adds.

The LA-220 has a manufacturer suggested retail price of US$499 and an estimated street price of US$249 and the LA-120 has a suggested retail price of US$599 and an estimated street price of US$349. They will be available in US retailers starting in August 2016 and worldwide in October.
