Lewitt Introduces the LCT 441 FLEX Microphone

Lewitt has debuted the LCT 441 FLEX, an eight polar pattern studio microphone with one-inch capsule.

Lewitt said the choice eight polar patterns, including three reverse polar patterns, allows for higher flexibility without moving the mic. A polar pattern affects how much room sound is recorded. But switching the polar pattern not only changes the directivity but also alters the frequency response, resulting in a different sound coming from the same microphone.

Users can also control the proximity effect and have it pronounced or reduced according to the application. This can serve as another sound shaping tool.

The LCT 441 FLEX can be used to record the human voice or anything else. Its natural transient response and high dynamic range ensure that nothing will limit the performance on the technical side.

It is priced at $399 and includes shock mount and magnetic pop filter.
