Blue Spark SL overview

  • 1Description

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)

  • PreSonus AudioBox 96 USB 2.0 Audio Recording Interface

    The AudioBox 96 from Presonus is a two-channel USB computer audio interface. Designed to be portable, the unit utilizes 24-bit converters that sample at 44.1, 48, 88.1, or 96 kHz. Two high-quality PreSonus microphone preamps with switchable 48V phantom power are also provided, as are combination jacks for 1/4" or XLR inputs, MIDI I/O, and solid drivers. Whilst recording, you can achieve zero-latency monitoring with a knob that allows you to blend signal from the preamp with signal in your DAW, giving you a tailored balance of both sources. 

    The interface is bundled with the Studio One Artist 3 DAW software for Mac and Windows, and includes the Studio Magic plug-in suite, providing effects, virtual instruments, and third-party loops, software, and instrument sounds. This unit is sturdy enough to be taken on the road, though also finds its home in the studio.

  • 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

The tripod stand design features collapsible legs for convenient storage and a telescoping center column that can be adjusted to reach a maximum working height of 76", including a standard reflection filter.

    The stand also features non-slip feet for added traction on hard surfaces as well as a 5/8" threaded adapter for attaching a shockmount or mic clip.

    Provides sturdy support to a microphone and a reflection filter at the same time
    May also be used as a speaker stand (may require 3/8" thread adapter)

  • Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable - 10' (3.0 m), Black

    The black Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable (10') 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
    Caged type contact and improved ground contact
