AKG P220 Large-Diaphragm Cardioid Condenser Microphone (Black)

Boasting even higher SPL handling and lower self-noise than the P120, the black AKG P220 large-diaphragm condenser microphone is poised to give clear, distortion-free sound on a budget, whether you record vocals at home or mic up blaring guitar cabs and explosive drums on stage. This side-address mic sports a rugged all-metal body that not only bolsters durability, but also aids in rejecting RF interference from sources such as wireless systems. It comes with a spider-type shockmount to isolate the mic from vibration noise and a metal carrying case for safe transport.

The true condenser capsule of the P220 utilizes a 1" gold-sputtered diaphragm tuned to yield a detailed sound with slight rises in high and low frequencies. Plus, it is capable of handling SPLs up to 155 dB (-20 pad on) without audible distortion, so it'll have no problem taking on drums and guitar amps. A low-cut filter at 300 Hz can be engaged to help reduce rumble, wind noise, or even bass buildup from up-close miking. Stage bleed and background noise are attenuated by the mic's cardioid polar pattern, which is most sensitive to sound in front of the microphone. Use a separately available XLR cable to connect the P220 to an XLR mic input that can supply 48V phantom power.

Cardioid Polar Pattern

This side-address microphone is most sensitive to sounds arriving in front of it while picking up much less of sounds arriving from the sides or rear (from monitor speakers or neighboring instruments). This makes the microphone equally suited for recording and onstage use.

Gold-Sputtered Large Diaphragm

The P220 features a true condenser capsule design. Its 1" large diaphragm is made of a plastic foil that is gold-sputtered on one side only to prevent shorting to the back electrode even at extremely high sound pressure levels.

All-Metal Body

The all-metal body adds to the rejection of RF interference so you can use the microphone near transmitter stations and along with wireless microphones or other communications equipment. The extremely rugged, heavy body and sturdy front grille protect the microphone from damage from tough handling on stage.

High Headroom and Minimum Distortion

Capable of handling sound pressure levels up to 155 dB without introducing perceptible distortion and built to resist high temperatures and humidity, the microphone will give excellent results in a wide range of applications.

Bass-Cut Filter

Selector 1 on the microphone front further reduces low-end distortion caused by footfall, wind noise, and air conditioning rumble. The filter also minimizes the proximity effect that close-in miking from less than 4" causes in any unidirectional microphone. The filter rolls off at 12 dB/octave from 300 Hz downward.

Switchable Pad

Selector 2 on the microphone front lets you increase the headroom by 20 dB for distortion-free recording up close. The pre-attenuation pad prevents the microphone's output level, particularly at low frequencies, from overloading the miniature transformers used in many mixer input stages, etc.

Connecting to Audio Equipment

The P220 uses a condenser transducer designed for 48V phantom powering from a source such as an external mic preamp, an audio interface, or a mixing console. It provides a balanced output on an XLR 3-pin male connector; use an XLR cable (available separately) to connect the microphone to a balanced XLR input with phantom power.

Shockmount and Metal Case

Included with the P220 are a spider-type shockmount and a metal carrying case. The shockmount absorbs vibrations, which aids in isolating the mic from stand handling noise and foot noise.

JBL 1 Series 104-BT Compact Powered Desktop Reference Monitors with Bluetooth (White Matte)

Offered here in a stylish white matte finish, the JBL 1 Series 104-BT comprises a pair of monitors suitable for both consumer and critical audio referencing. They take the respected design of the One Series 104 and add Bluetooth 5.0 to the mix, so you can stream music from your favorite compatible media player straight to the speakers. Mixing engineers may also benefit from these desktop monitors, as they can now hear what Bluetooth transmission would do to their mixes. 

These monitors employ a coaxial design to give you a smooth representation of the frequency spectrum, so that you have a more accurate picture of the sonic information coming your way. As such, these speakers are useful for home-recording studios, podcasters, video editors who pay attention to sound, and anyone looking for accurate, yet portable monitors.

A 4.5" low-frequency driver and a 0.75" high-frequency driver are situated in a coaxial design, while a 60W amplifier distributes 30W of Class-D power to each speaker. Set your monitoring level with the front-panel volume knob on the master speaker, and you'll find accurate sonic representation at any volume. The frequency response is 60 Hz to 20 kHz, but a low-frequency port ensures presence in the low registers to better judge bass content.

Inputs are made possible through balanced 1/4" jacks, a 3.5mm connection for auxiliary devices, or unbalanced RCA connections. A front-panel headphone jack on the master speaker mutes the speakers and outputs signal directly to your favorite pair of cans. Included with the monitors is a 6.6' monitor extension speaker wire, a 3.5mm-to-RCA audio cable (perfect for stereo receivers, for example), and a power cable.

Key Features at a Glance

  • Coaxial 4.5" LF driver and 0.75" soft-dome HF driver
  • Reference mixes via Bluetooth 5.0 streaming
  • Integrated 60W Class-D power amplifier
  • 30 watts distributed to each speaker

Auray RF-C12 Professional Desktop Isolation Filter (Gray)

The gray RF-C12 Professional Desktop Isolation Filter from Auray is a desktop solution that allows music producers, broadcasters, and podcasters to get better recordings by isolating a microphone from vibrations and sound reflections, especially when its used in a space that is less than ideal for capturing audio. The Auray Desktop Isolation Filter makes capturing clean, dry vocals or instruments more natural sounding with less sonic coloration.

The RF-C12 fits on a desk or tabletop and uses multi-layer acoustic treatment to absorb unwanted ambient noise and control acoustic reflections. So, if you're recording vocals, voiceovers, or podcasts in an untreated room with hard surfaces, the RF-CF20 provides advanced microphone isolation.

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 Desktop Isolation Filter fits on your desk or tabletop and minimizes reflections of unwanted noise bouncing off hard surfaces from entering your microphone. Usually, expensive acoustic foam is required on walls for your room to sound dry. With this reflection filter, you capture what you want in your own room or workspace.

Multi-Layer Acoustic Treatment

Multiple 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 any noise coming in from the room. A layer of acoustic fabric and a molded-vented polymer shield help deaden and disperse sound waves, leaving you with clean and dry recordings with little to no coloration.

Adjustable Mic Depth

The RF-C12 allows the microphone depth to be adjusted so you can dial in the right amount of room ambience. Easily slide the microphone closer to the filter for less pickup of room noise or slide the microphone away to add space in your audio recording.

Filter Stand

The Auray Desktop Isolation Filter is mounted on its own stand. This allows you to place your filter and mic setup on a desk or tabletop, which is ideal for recording vocals, doing live podcasts, or broadcast applications. It's a portable option for doing recordings on the go. The isolation filter's height is adjustable from 7.25 to 9.1". (18.4 to 23 cm), and can accommodate all sizes—short or tall—to optimize mic placement when capturing audio.
