The matched pair of C414 XLS ST Reference Multi-Pattern Condenser Microphones from AKG are designed for detailed pickup of acoustic instruments. They offer five selectable polar patterns, providing a suitable solution for a wide range of recording situations. There is a high SPL capability, wide dynamic range, and low self-noise to produce clean, lifelike audio with a minimum of overloads or distortion.
The C414 XLS ST features a metal body and transformerless design, allowing it to resist electrostatic and electromagnetic interference for trouble-free operation. The microphone's capsule is internally mounted on an elastic suspension to minimize vibration and noise handling. A set of 3 switchable bass cut filters and 3 pre-attenuation pads reduce low frequency pickup and increase headroom while recording loud sound sources. Bi-color LEDs conveniently indicate the selected polar pattern and output overload. The package includes two C414 microphones, two elastic spider suspensions, two stand adapters, two windscreens, one stereo mounting bar, and one aluminum carrying case.
Nine selectable polar patterns offer a suitable setting for a wide variety of applications
Three attenuation levels for close-up recording or high-output sources of up to 158dB SPL
Three different switchable bass-cut filters to reduce wind noise, subsonic noise, or proximity effect
Overload warning with audio peak hold LED to detect shortest audio peaks
