This B&H Kit combines the Behringer X18 Compact Digital Mixer with the Rode NT1-A Large Diaphragm Microphone Package, a pair of studio monitor headphones, a tripod microphone stand, and a headphone clamp to create a high quality recording setup for audio engineers, musicians, and voice over artists. The X18 is designed to sit flat on a surface and features 16 top-facing MIDAS-designed fully programmable microphone preamps via balanced combination Line Level TRS and Microphone XLR-3F connectors, an integrated Wi-Fi module for wireless control from an iPad or tablet, and an 18 x 18 channel bi-directional USB audio interface. The mixer can be controlled via a free iOS or PC application when connected to an Ethernet, LAN, or Wi-Fi network. Controlling the mixer using a portable device allows you to reference your mix from different listening positions within the venue or studio. The free control app includes four stereo (eight mono) multi-effect processors including delay, chorus, dynamics, 31-band EQ, and simulations of classic analog equipment such as the Lexicon 480L and PCM 80, EMT 250, and Quantec QRS reverbs.
The NT1-A is a 1" large diaphragm cardioid condenser microphone. It has a self-noise level of 5 dB-A, making it a great choice for vocal microphones, as well as for recording guitars and percussion instruments. A studio grade pop shield and shockmount is included, along with a premium 20' microphone cable, dust cover, and an instructional DVD with recording tips. The studio monitor headphones feature a classic closed-back, over-the-ear, collapsible design. With features like interchangeable cables, a refined frequency response, wire guides, superior comfort, and durable materials, the headphones are ideal for studio and field applications. The tripod microphone stand features a fixed boom and durable, steel construction. The 31.5" boom arm allows you to angle the mic however you need it. An ergonomic twist-action clutch helps adjust the height of the stand, while the reinforced tripod base and non-slip feet keep it firmly and sturdily in place. The clamp-on headphone holder easily attaches to microphone stands that are up to 1.2" (30mm) in diameter to provide a hanging hook that supports two pairs of studio headphones.
