NAMM 2017: LEWITT release the LCT 640 TS microphone

LEWITT has announced the arrival of its latest microphone, the LCT 640 TS, a large-diaphragm condenser microphone that they claim “revolutionizes the way we think about the recording process.”

LCT 640 TS

The motivation behind the creation of the LCT 640 TS comes from a single thought; “The ability to change your recording setup after the fact…”, which LEWITT believe to have cracked in the LCT 640 TS.


Here’s what they have to say.

‘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 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 £879 and can be purchased here where you can learn more about its features.
