Change the Polar-Pattern – After Recording
The ability to change your recording setup after the fact might just be the ultimate freedom of choice. This idea is the central motivation behind Austrian microphone company LEWITT’s design for its new LCT 640 TS – a large-diaphragm condenser microphone that revolutionizes the way we think about the recording process. When set to Dual Output Mode, the microphone’s front and rear diaphragms use two independent circuits. Any desired polar pattern such as omni, wide cardioid, cardioid, supercardioid, figure-8, or anything in between can thus be created before and after recording.
This paves the way for new recording and mixing possibilities. Previously recorded material can be changed dynamically by adjusting the polar pattern, and room sound can be increased or decreased – the pattern is incredibly easy to set and change right within your DAW by using LEWITT’s “Polarizer” plug-in. The LCT 640 TS even makes it possible to rotate the microphone’s directivity by 180° after recording. Recording in stereo with just one LCT 640 TS, rather than with the usual two microphones, is a snap in Dual Output Mode. In Multi-Pattern Mode, the LCT 640 TS has all of the well-known characteristics of a studio multi-pattern condenser microphone – and LEWITT’s Perfect Match® technology guarantees that any two LCT 640 TS mics will always form a matched pair. The LCT 640 TS is available now for around $899 USD.
