Classic AKG vocal performance
Looking for a high-performance condenser microphone that can make vocal tracks really shine? Check out AKG's versatile C414 XLII. Although you can use it to mike a variety of sound sources, its slight presence boost makes it ideal for recording the human voice and other lead instruments. This mic's sonic signature is modeled after AKG's famous vintage C12 model.
Accurate sound and versatility
Nine selectable pickup patterns accommodate a wide variety of applications, including close-up and distance miking. Three switchable bass cut filters and three pre-attenuation levels let you adjust for different sound sources and recording situations. For live concert use, all controls can be disabled easily so settings can't be changed accidentally.
The C414 XLII mic has a wide dynamic range, and features a large 1" diaphragm that can deliver finely detailed sound. A 20 dB attenuation switch lets the C414 handle high sound pressure levels, so you can use use it to close-mic drum kits, guitar amps and brass instruments.
The microphone comes with a windscreen and pop filter for vocal recordings. Also included is a universal shock mount. And all of this gear fits in the included foam-cushioned aluminum carry case.
