Lauten makes some incredible versatile microphones. With great quality, comes a price tag… well sometimes. Lauten has made a more affordable tube mic for home, project, and I’d bet even professional studios.
The Series Black LA-320 large diaphragm vacuum tube condenser microphone is a professional and versatile microphone for studio and vocal recording. This microphone features a 1″ gold sputtered diaphragm with cardioid polar pattern, dual-triode vacuum tube, 120 Hz low-cut filter, 12 kHz high-cut filter, and transformer balanced output. The low-cut filter helps reduce boomy lows or low-end rumble; the high-pass filter helps to tame bright sources. These features help you to achieve excellent recordings regardless of your skill level.
You’ve been recording for a while, you’re starting to learn the sonic difference between different microphones, and now you’re ready to enter the world of vacuum tubes. It’s time for you to let the Series Black LA-320 lead the way into that vintage vacuum tube tone you’ve heard all about. Designed for the budding the recordists, the LA-320 is the best entry into professional quality recordings with a tube microphone. We’ve made it easy to use and affordable for anyone to get serious about their sound.
The high and low cut filters make solving common problems in home, basement or bedroom recording environments easy. The LA-320 features two independent filters located on the microphone and easy to engage via switches located on the front of the microphone. If the room or source is boomy, or you have low-end rumble from outside sources like road noise, furnace, air conditioner etc., turn on the low-cut filter and eliminate the problem. Use the high-cut to roll-off above 12k and tame a bright room or a bright source. What’s even cooler is you can use both filters at the same time resolving many problems before the recording hits your hard drive.
