If you are looking for a microphone and interface for recording vocals and instruments, check out the AKG C 414 XL II and Apollo Twin DUO Recording Kit from B&H. It includes an AKG C 414 XL II multi-pattern condenser microphone, a Universal Audio Apollo Twin DUO interface, an XLR cable to connect the two, and an Apple Thunderbolt cable to connect the Apollo to a compatible Mac.
The C 414 XL II is a workhorse microphone that can be used on a variety of instruments such as acoustic guitar, bass, and percussion as well as vocals. It has 5 selectable polar patterns, 3 selectable filters, and 3 pads. The microphone comes with a shockmount, a pop screen, a foam windscreen, and a road case.
Universal Audio's Apollo Twin DUO is a 2 in/6 out Thunderbolt interface that can capture your audio in up to 192 kHz/24-bit. It features 2 of UA's Unison mic preamps, which allow you to emulate classic and vintage preamps, down to their impedance and gain structures. The Apollo Twin DUO allows for real time processing of your tracks through their line of UAD plug-ins, and comes equipped with Universal Audio's Analog Classics bundle.
The classic C414 XLII Multi-Pattern Large-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone from AKG is a staple within the audio industry. Equipped with nine selectable polar patterns, three attenuation levels and three switchable bass-cut filters, the C414 XLII remains one of the most versatile condenser microphone for recording vocals, drums, and acoustic & amplified instruments in the studio or on stage.
This microphone closely approximates the sound of the legendary AKG C12. A slight high-frequency rise at 3 kHz and above helps compensate for the natural loss of high frequencies that occurs at a distance, making the C414 XLII an excellent choice for miking vocals & instruments that are positioned far way. The 1" edge-terminated dual-diaphragm transducer combined with the low-noise electronic circuitry provide a wide dynamic range of 134 dB and can handle SPL up to 158 dB, for a neutral and detailed sound.
Features include a peak-hold LED to alert you if overload peaks occur, and a Lock Mode so the microphone settings cannot be changed unintentionally. The elastic capsule suspension minimizes structurally-transmitted noise from chassis vibration. The rugged all-metal body ensures efficient rejection of RF interference and makes this microphone well suited to withstand the rigors of studio and stage handling.
Built and designed in Austria, the C414 XLII comes with a metal carrying case, a spider-type shockmount, a pop filter, and a foam windscreen.

Universal Audio Apollo Twin DUO Desktop Interface with Realtime UAD Processing for Mac and Windows
The Apollo Twin DUO Desktop Interface with Realtime UAD Processing from Universal Audio is a Thunderbolt audio interface capable of capturing your audio in up to 24-bit/192 kHz with realtime, low-latency UAD plug-in processing. It features Universal Audio's Unison technology, which, in conjunction with their UAD plug-ins, is capable of emulating a range of tube and solid-state microphone preamps, including their impedance and gain-stage sweet spots.
The Apollo Twin DUO includes the Realtime Analog Classics UAD plug-in bundle, featuring legacy editions of the LA-2A Classic Audio Leveler, the 1176LN Limiting Amplifier, and Pultec EQP-1A Program Equalizer, plus Softube Amp Room Essentials, and the 610-B Tube Preamp.
Record and Mix with 24-bit/192 kHz Sound Quality
The Apollo Twin gives you 24-bit/192 kHz sound and clarity. Its mic preamps, input stage, and audio conversion are identical to the Apollo series, translating into recordings with depth and punch. Digitally controlled analog monitor outputs provide full resolution audio (without digital scaling) at all listening levels - letting you create better mixes in real-world environments
A Complete Analog Studio with Realtime UAD Plug-In Processing
Imagine having access to a classic analog recording studio, right on your desktop. Apollo Twin lets you record and mix through the full range of UAD Powered plug-ins - including vintage EQs, compressors, reverbs, tape machines and more - at near-zero latency, regardless of your audio software buffer size. With UAD plug-ins from Ampex, Lexicon, Neve, Moog, Roland, SSL, Studer, and more, Apollo Twin can provide analog tone and warmth. The key is its onboard UAD-2 DUO DSP Processing, which powers the UAD plug-ins while reducing the strain on your host CPU. Apollo Twin includes the "Realtime Analog Classics" plug-in bundle, featuring a choice selection of vintage compressors, EQs and reverb, plus guitar amps and tube mic preamp emulation. From there, you can choose from a vast and expanding collection of plug-ins in the UA Online Store
Track Through Classic Mic Preamps Using Unison Technology
Unison technology allows Apollo Twin's mic preamps to sound and behave like the world's most sought-after tube and solid state preamps - including their all-important impedance, gain stage "sweet spots," and circuit behaviors. Based on integration between Apollo's digitally controlled analog mic preamps and its onboard UAD processing, Unison lets you track through colorful preamp emulations like the bundled UA 610-B Tube Preamp plug-in
Thunderbolt Connection to Your Mac or PC
Apollo Twin's Thunderbolt connection features PCIe audio drivers for high-bandwidth, low-latency performance on all Thunderbolt-equipped Macs and PCs. Because Thunderbolt offers 12x the bandwidth of FireWire 800, you can connect numerous devices in line with Apollo Twin - including hard drives and HDMI/USB3 hubs
Apollo Twin is a 2-in/6-out interface with two mic/line preamps, two analog line outputs, two digitally controlled analog monitor outputs, and up to eight additional channels of digital inputs via Optical connection. Its conveniently located Hi-Z instrument input and headphone jack allow you to capture inspiration the moment it strikes
Console Application and Console Recall Plug-In
The Console application is Apollo Twin's software control interface. Its analog console-style design provides "realtime" tracking and monitoring with UAD Powered Plug-Ins - a feature not found in any other interface. Complete Apollo Twin Console setups can be saved as presets, or even saved within your sessions using the Console Recall plug-in. This enables hardware recall of all Apollo Twin settings, even months and years after you last opened your session

Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable - 15' (4.6 m), Black
The black Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable (15') is designed to be an extremely quiet and flexible cable that is ideal for the most demanding live sound and performance applications. The cable is engineered to be durable and to provide protection against EMI, RFI, and static noise. While the cable's color-coding affords the ability to quickly differentiate between multiple connections on stage, it provides a pleasant aesthetic quality at the same time.
Premium Performance 3000 Series cables are made from 24-AWG OFC copper wire that's wrapped with PE insulation and a conductive PVC inner shield. A cotton-yarn inner layer helps reduce electrostatic and microphonic noise. 95% dual-spiral shielding makes the cable resistant to EMI and RFI noise. The Neutrik XX silver connectors provide a high level of connectivity, and all the solder connections are shrink-wrapped for protection.
95% dual-spiral shielding offers protection from EMI and RFI noise
Twin conductive PVC inner shielding provides 100% coverage of the core conductor. It helps keep the cable's signal from radiating and affecting nearby cables, and also helps prevent external EMI from penetrating to the cable's core
24-AWG oxygen-free stranded copper inner core provides the best possible conductivity
Cotton yarn reduces electrostatic and microphonic noise
All solder points shrink-wrapped for protection
Neutrik XX silver connectors offer high conductivity
