Overview

AKG D12VR

The AKG D12VR is a reference large-diaphragm dynamic microphone with cardioid polar pattern. Designed specifically for kick-drum recording applications, the microphone has a thin diaphragm to enhance the low frequency performance. Its warm sound is realized by the original C414 transformer, especially impressive at high signal levels.

The D12 VR features three active filter presets to match its sound shape with the kick drum’s character. When activated, the output level is automatically reduced by 10 dB. The filter settings can be controlled using a switch on the microphone body. Without phantom power, the microphone operates in passive mode and delivers the instruments pure sound.

  • Active dynamic microphone, fine-tuned for kick drum applications
  • Operates passively without phantom power
  • Applying phantom power allows you to access three different filter curves
  • Filter 1 adds low-frequency boost for depth and power
  • Filter 2 is a midrange cut that opens up sonic room for other instruments
  • Filter 3 combines the first two filters, and adds a presence boost for clarity
  • C414 transformer adds sonic richness to high-level signals
  • Ultra-thin diaphragm and bass-optimized capsule chamber capture huge bass tones
  • Cardioid polar pattern, with up to 25dB signal rejection of off-axis sounds
  • Excellent for use in both studio and live applications
