Perfect for podcasters, game streamers, or YouTube content creators, the AKG Podcaster Essentials offers all the tools you need to produce polished sound for your projects. It includes the Lyra multipattern USB condenser mic, a pair of K371 headphones, a dual-headphone adapter, Ableton Live 10 Lite DAW software, and a four-part recording course at Berklee Online. All you need to supply is your own computer or compatible mobile device.
Whether you're working on solo podcasts, recording shows with a guest, or streaming game play, the Podcaster Essentials bundle ensures that you can get set up and rolling in no time. There's no need to bother with driver installation or a separate audio interface; the Lyra provides simple plug-and-play compatibility with Mac/Windows computers and iOS/Android mobile devices. It also offers a 3.5mm headphone jack and headphone volume knob, so you can plug your new, comfortable AKG K371 headphones right into the microphone for real-time monitoring.
For those who want a high-quality experience out of their USB microphone, the AKG Lyra offers high-definition audio, powerful versatility, and superb simplicity, all while providing a stylish on-screen appearance. Whether you're creating online content, podcasting, vlogging, live-streaming, producing music, or fashioning ASMR content, the Lyra can come in handy.
The Lyra fulfills the needs of those looking for both a studio-quality sound and an effortless setup that avoids mixers, preamps, audio interfaces, and things of that ilk. As such, the mic offers 24-bit / 192 kHz conversion, a built-in shockmount, and internal diffusion to yield pristine sonic quality for your recordings. Take advantage of the integrated desktop stand and its built-in cable management to place the Lyra on a table, or remove the desktop stand, and you can mount the Lyra on your favorite boom arm or mic stand.
- Front: Isolates the target source from distracting background noise by rejecting unwanted sounds at the microphone back and sides—ideal for spoken word, vocals, and close-miked instruments.
- Front and Back: Captures and blends together sound equally on all sides—ideal for face-to-face interviews and duets.
- Tight Stereo: Captures audio in true stereo, providing discrete left and right audio for great sound separation—ideal for recording side-by-side interviews, panel discussions, drums, or piano.
- Wide Stereo: Captures audio with greater stereo separation, room ambience, and depth—ideal for situations where you want to capture sounds all around the mic, such as documentaries, field recordings, or spontaneous jam sessions.
