Neumann TLM 102 BK Large-Diaphragm Cardioid Condenser Microphone (Black)

Bundled with a space-saving stand mount, the black Neumann TLM 102 BK large-diaphragm condenser microphone brings renowned Neumann sound quality to a price point that's inclusive to home producers, working musicians, and independent singer-songwriters. The capsule's high SPL rating of 144 dB permits the recording of percussion, drums, amplifiers, and other loud sound sources clearly and without distortion. With its 8 to 12 kHz treble boost, the TLM 102 imparts a silky vocal presence while avoiding pronounced sibilance.

The mic utilizes a cardioid polar pattern to provide directional sound pickup in front of the capsule and strong rejection behavior behind it, yielding less background noise than most other polar responses. The integrated pop shield reduces breath noise and vocal plosives, though external pop filters are available for even more control. The TLM 102's transformerless output stage aids the mic in achieving a clean character with plenty of reach in the bass range, and it delivers resistance to electromagnetic interference.

Silky Tone
Neumann developed the TLM 102 as a universal talent for vocal and instrumental recordings. Its finely tuned sound signature especially accents the area of 8 to 12 kHz which is crucial for human voices. The recordings get a silky elegance typical of large-diaphragm microphones; the voice gets a noble presence in the overall mix. Nevertheless, the TLM 102 remains easy to handle and deals masterfully with critical consonants or sibilants, thanks to the integrated pop shield.
No Problem with High Volume
The TLM 102 also processes extreme volume and jumps in dynamics without distortion. That makes it an excellent choice for miking loud amps and drums. It reproduces sound pressure levels of up to 144 dB (e.g. very loud trumpet at a distance of about 4") with great clarity: open, detailed, with powerful bass and refined treble.
Neumann Sound on a Budget
The TLM 102 stands for legendary sound on a budget. Neumann remodeled the production and omitted non-vital functions such as pattern, pad, and low-cut switches. When you hear the TLM 102, you'll immediately notice what they did not omit: the Neumann sound, which remains faithful to its big role models.
Clear and Powerful
The TLM series works with a transformerless output stage to enable a clean and direct sound, very "close" to the acoustic source, and a powerful bass transmission all the way down to the lowest frequencies. Its transformerless output stage also makes the microphone resistant to electromagnetic fields and minimizes transmission losses.

Rycote InVision Studio Kit with USM

The Rycote InVision Studio Kit with USM is a complete suspension and pop filter system which combines the InVision Studio Universal Shockmount and Universal Pop Filter in one convenient package—everything you need to capture professional radio-ready recordings free from pops and noise.

 

The shockmount supports any microphone with a diameter of 18 to 55 mm and weighing up to 1.65 lb. The patented vibration-resistant Lyre mount helps to reduce capsule and cable-borne noise and controlled tests at Rycote's factory show that it provides up to twice the isolation of traditional microphone suspension systems.

 

The pop filter is made with a custom mesh that attenuates frequencies up to 20 dB and is designed to reduce or eliminate pops caused by "b" and "p" plosives in vocal performances. Unlike other pop filters, this one causes no audible high-frequency loss, keeping the integrity and clarity of the original sound produced by your microphone.

 

With its universal screw clamp, the InVision pop filter not only works with the InVision USM but is designed to fit any universal shockmount with diameters between 1/8 and 1/2". When the time comes, the mesh filter is replaceable helping to maintain a clean, hygienic studio and the ergonomic frame is designed for comfort so you can focus on the performance and not on what's in front of you.

Warm Audio Premier Series Balanced XLR Cable (15')

Presented here with a cable length of 15'', this Warm Audio Premier Series XLR Cable is designed to provide a high-end connection between balanced gear with XLR jacks, such as microphones, outboard equipment, and interface-to-monitoring connections. If you care about the details of your sound onstage and in the studio, use this cable to preserve your signal.

This XLR cable is chock-full of features that enable a top-of-the-line performance, such as gold-plated connectors and a star-quad wiring scheme for superior RFI rejection in the balancing process. Double-Ruessen shielding helps protect against EMI, and a braided outer wrap fights against tangling. To guarantee an optimal performance, Warm Audio partnered with Gotham AG, one of Switzerland's best producers of premium cable.

The Premier Touch
Warm's Premier cables go above and beyond, adding features like gold-plated connectors, a braided outer wrap, four-conductor star-quad construction (helping aid in giving you powerful rejection of RFI), and double-Ruessen shielding (also for increased rejection of EMI).
Braided Premier Wrap
This braided wrap removes the friction that occurs when rubber or PVC rub together, so it's much easier to handle and wrap the cable. No more fighting with a rat's nest of cable spaghetti. The braided wrap also adds an element of strength and reliability, as it helps to protect the cable's PVC jacket from damage due to pinching or binding.
Star Quad Explained
A traditional balanced cable uses three cores of wire to carry audio signals—one shielded core for the positive leg, one shielded core for the negative leg, and a plain outer wrap that functions as the ground. The idea is this: a fully balanced system flips the phase of the signal, merges the positive and negative signals together, and effectively cancels out interference encountered along the cable's length by throwing it out of phase with the audio.

Star-quad construction takes that concept even further by using five cores instead of three. Two cores are provided each for the positive and negative legs, as well as a single ground. This helps to further shield the audio from RFI (radio frequency interference), ensuring an even better performance.

Double-Ruessen Shielding Explained
Double-Ruessen shielding goes further than more traditional techniques in two ways: First, the cable is wrapped with two separate shields. Second, the outer shield is wrapped in a contrary direction to the inner shield, creating a stronger and more complete barrier from EMI for the internal cores.
Gold-Plated Connectors
Gold connectors have characteristics that are advantageous for signal transfer and provide more resistance to corrosion than other metals, making it well-suited for cable connectors.

Auray RF-C20 Studio Isolation Filter (Red Composite, Metal Back)

The red composite, metal back RF-C20 Studio Isolation Filter from Auray provides a solution for music producers, broadcasters, and podcasters looking to help isolate a microphone and achieve better recordings in a space that is less than ideal for capturing audio. The Auray Studio Isolation Filter makes capturing clean, dry vocals or instrument recordings sound more natural with less sonic coloration.

The RF-C20 fits on a medium- to heavy-duty microphone stand and uses a rugged aluminum mesh frame, four-layers of acoustic treatment, a vented metal back, plus a layer of acoustic composite fiber to absorb unwanted ambient noise and control acoustic reflections. In a nutshell, if your recording vocals, voiceovers, or podcasts in an untreated room with hard surfaces, the RF-C20 provides advanced microphone isolation for better-sounding results.

Microphone Isolation
Recording, broadcasting, or podcasting in rooms with little-to-no acoustic treatment can wash-out vocal or instrument audio recordings with echo reflections. The Auray Studio Isolation Filter minimizes reflections of unwanted noise bouncing off hard surfaces and entering your microphone. Usually, expensive acoustic foam is required on studio walls to absorb reflections and get a "dry" sound. With this reflection filter, you can achieve similar results in your own room or workspace.
Four-Layer Acoustic Treatment
Four layers of acoustic treatment help to isolate your vocal and instrument recordings. A thick layer of composite fiber surrounds your microphone and absorbs unwanted reflections, as well as additional noise coming in from the room. Two more layers of fabric and a perforated mesh layer help deaden and disperse sound waves, leaving your incoming audio clean and dry with little to no coloration.
Adjustable Microphone Position
Getting the right position with your microphone to capture vocals or instruments is a crucial step when recording audio. The RF-C20 allows you to adjust the microphone position horizontally and vertically. Slide the microphone closer to the filter for that dry sound or slide the microphone away from the filter to add more of the room ambience. You can also adjust the microphone height to fit the person or instrument you're recording. You can even alter the angle of the filter and microphone with a simple twist of a knob.
Mounting Options
The Auray Studio Isolation Filter can be mounted three ways. Use the clamps to attach the filter to medium- to heavy-duty boom and microphone stands. The clamps provide quick attachment and minimize setup time. An included 5/8- to 3/8" adapter allows you to seat the filter directly to the top of your mic stand. In addition, you can mount the isolation filter upside down to a mic boom arm for overhead recording.
