Lauten Audio LA-120
The Lauten Audio LA-120 brings you a transformerless, sonically flexible, small-diaphragm condenser microphone. Ideal for both recording and live sound applications. This dynamic and transparent design sees the LA-120 equipped with two dedicated filters for analog sound-shaping at the source. It also comes with interchangeable capsules for added sonic flexibility.
The LA-120 is a transformerless and sonically flexible, small-diaphragm condenser microphone for recording and live sound applications. This dynamic and transparent design is equipped with two dedicated filters for analog sound-shaping at the source, and ships with interchangeable capsules for added sonic flexibility. Unlike traditional microphone designs that utilize a transformer to introduce colour and saturation, the LA-120 utilizes a USA made JFET to capture the uncoloured vibrance and character of an instrument with life and authenticity.
Onboard Sound Shaping
Offering immediate analog sound-shaping, the LA-120 features two onboard filters. Allowing you to shape sounds at the source, removing the need to change microphones to get the sound you want. Add warmth and weight to anemic percussion, or remove harshness and boominess from an acoustic guitar at a switch.
The LA-120 also features hand-tuned 17mm capsules that provide a natural, vibrant timbre. Without the harshness that you’ll find in more affordable designs. Therefore, it’s ideal for drums, acoustic guitar, choir, orchestra, and piano. Cardioid capsules focus the LA-120’s attention directly where it’s pointed. So you’ll decrease the overall room sound in your recordings. Omnidirectional capsules allow you to capture the room and off-axis instrumentation in a more open and natural manner.
Finally, the LA-120 signal path is populated with high resolution, low-distortion polypropylene capacitors and resistors. As well as a US-made JFET for dynamic articulate, and uncoloured performance.
