The Shure KSM32/SL Project-Studio Vocal Solution is available exclusively to B&H customers. The kit accessorizes the Shure KSM32S/L studio condenser microphone with everything necessary to achieve quality vocal recordings in home and project studios. The KSM32S/L is delivered with the PreSonus Studio Channel microphone preamp, sE Electronics Reflexion Filter Pro, pop filter, On-Stage boom stand, Closed-Back headphones, and an XLR cable.
Featuring integral pop protection and shock-mounting plus a large-diaphragm true condenser capsule and transparent Class-A circuitry, the champagne Shure KSM32/SL microphone is built to deliver excellent transient response and neutral tone in the studio or on stage. Its flat frequency response and selectable settings—two low-cut filter options and a -15 dB pad—make the KSM32/SL honest and versatile, so it can be used on anything from vocals and guitars to drums and piano. The SL model comes with a ShureLock shockmount, ShureLock stand mount, velveteen pouch, and hard shell carrying case.
The uniform cardioid polar pattern of the KSM32/SL helps reduce the capture of stage bleed and background noise, allowing you to achieve more gain and stronger direct sound. The built-in pop protection utilizes three separate layers to minimize noise from vocal plosives, breaths, and even light wind. Internal shock-mounting helps to decouple the mic from sources of vibration that could otherwise transfer from the mic body to the capsule. Being a solid-state XLR condenser mic, the KSM32/SL requires 48V phantom power.
The Presonus Studio Channel is a channel strip that features a tube preamp, a VCA compressor, and a 3-band parametric EQ. The tube preamp section features two knobs: Gain and Tube Drive. This allows you to adjust the amount of signal that hits the tube circuitry, opening up a wide range of sonic options. The VCA compressor section is well-suited to help all different kinds of audio sit nicely in a mix, whether it's percussion with fast transients, or smooth and silky vocals. The parametric EQ features a custom amplifier with a gain control on each of the 3 bands, with a variable Q knob on the mid frequency.
If you're curious about outboard gear and want to upgrade your signal path from the stock preamp found on most audio interfaces, the Presonus Studio Channel is an excellent choice for deeper sonic exploration. Likewise, experienced professionals will appreciate the Studio Channel's solid set of sound shaping tools, as well as its afforable pricetag.

It mounts to your stand with a vertically and horizontally adjustable and lockable clamp that can be tilted to accommodate instrument recording.
The Auray PFSS-55 Pop Filter with Gooseneck with Springloaded Desktop Clamp features double-layered nylon to greatly reduce noise from aspirated plosives like p and b sounds.
