This B&H Kit includes the Blue Spark SL Large-Diaphragm Studio Condenser Microphone, the PreSonus AudioBox 96 USB 2.0 Audio Recording Interface, a reflection filter, a microphone stand, and a 10' XLR cable. With this kit, you have everything you need to create a professional-quality recording solution almost anywhere, or you can construct a compact studio space in your home.

The combination of this kit's components has been designed to give you the ability to capture clear audio in spaces that can be acoustically-challenged. The Blue Spark SL features a JFET design that keeps the capsule's backplate evenly charged for delivering consistently transparent sound, while the shockmount, reflection filter, and mic stand help to keep things stable and isolate vocal performances from ambient noises. Using the two-channel USB Audio-Box 96, you can make sure you capture it all.

Blue Spark SL Large-Diaphragm Studio Condenser Microphone

Featuring a class-A circuitry to ensure a pure signal, the Blue Spark SL is a studio large-diaphragm condenser microphone which builds upon its predecessor to offer a switchable 100 Hz high-pass filter and a -20 dB pad, allowing you to offset pesky factors like the bass-heavy sonic signature of a given room, or an intrinsically loud instrument. It utilizes a JFET design, which has been fashioned to keep the capsule's backplate evenly charged, thus delivering a consistently transparent and even signal across the frequency response.

The Spark SL offers a cardioid polar pattern to minimize off-axis feedback and extraneous noise, giving you a frequency range between 20 Hz to 20 kHz, which is more than enough to record vocals, pianos, stringed instruments, and more. An SPL of 136 dB allows the microphone to capture a wide swath of dynamic material without damaging elements of the microphone. The microphone requires 48V phantom power to run, provides a dynamic range of 119.6 dB, and includes both a custom shockmount and a wooden storage box.

Key Features at a Glance

  • Capsule designed for transparent, neutral sound capture
  • Wide, richly detailed frequency response and SPL of 136 dB
  • High-pass filter and -20 dB pad to promote versatility
  • Suitable for use with home-studio interfaces (USB, Thunderbolt, or otherwise)

Auray RF-CM-S Reflection Filter (Silver)

The silver RF-CM-S Reflection Filter from Auray is the perfect solution for recording vocalists or voice over artists in less than stellar acoustic spaces where room reflection would otherwise be recorded along with the vocal, making post processing and mixing more complicated. This might be in a home studio, an untreated rehearsal space, or a makeshift film dialogue replacement situation.

Housed in a deep and sturdy, semicircular perforated aluminum shell, the high density acoustic foam provides a reflection free environment for the microphone, while simultaneously attenuating any room noise. The resulting dry and clearer recordings can then be treated during mixing or film post processing without extraneous noises or unwanted reflections getting in the way.

The filter mounts onto a microphone stand, and front and rear sliding brackets easily allow you to adjust its height and depth for precise microphone placement. Standard 5/8"-27 threaded adapters fit most microphone stands, clips and shockmounts.

Compact solution for providing sound isolation for vocal or voice over recording in untreated spaces
High-density foam absorbs acoustic reflections and minimizes room ambience, isolating the microphone
Perforated aluminum shield diffuses and prevents sound that might reflect back to microphone, especially when recording loud vocalists
Sliding bracket makes it easy to mount the microphone in the ideal position inside the reflection filter
Rear adjustable bracket provides additional filter height adjustment to accommodate different vocalist heights
Adapters with industry-standard 5/8"-27 threaded studs and sockets are compatible with mic stands, shock mounts, and mic clips with a 5/8"-27 post.
Deep, semi-circular design ensures dry vocals while attenuating external noise
