Kick out the jams

Manufactured at AKG's flagship factory in Vienna, the D12 VR is a reference dynamic microphone designed specifically for kick-drum recording applications. Touting the thinnest diaphragm available, this mic reproduces an instrument's sound with incredible accuracy. Switch on the phantom power, and you'll gain access to three filter presets:

  • a low-end boost that enhances the kick drum's power and impact;
  • a midrange attentuation that makes room for other instruments in the mix;
  • the first two settings are applied, along with a high-frequency bump that enhances the kick drum's slap.

Without phantom power, the microphone works in passive mode, delivering the instrument's warm sound without any coloration, even at unbelievably high levels, and its cardioid pattern rejects sounds from neighboring instruments.
