A TRUE NEXT-GEN STUDIO MICROPHONE
Freely change the polar pattern in post-production
Designed and engineered in Austria, the LCT 640 TS will revolutionize the way we think about the recording process. Since the signal of the front and back diaphragm is provided by independent circuitries, any kind of polar pattern can be realized dynamically - even after the recording.
Revolutionary Dual Output Mode
The LCT 640 TS provides the signal of the front and the back diaphragm of the capsule separately. In addition to your standard XLR cable plug in the included adapter cable and experience all the possibilities of this true next-gen microphone. Use both outputs to capture the whole session instead of committing to a single source.
Change the material you have already recorded dynamically by adjusting the polar pattern, add or subtract room, and even turn your microphone by 180°. Think about all the possibilities!
Change pattern in your DAW
After recording with the LCT 640 TS, use our plugin to change the pattern. Jump back and tweak your material.
Standard Multi-Pattern Mode
Plug in one 3-pin XLR and you have a large diaphragm multi-pattern condenser mic featuring the following polar patterns: omni, wide cardioid, cardioid, supercardioid and figure-8
Magnetic pop filter
Hides nothing, captures everything - except plosives and hisses
This efficient magnetic pop filter will effectively reduce pops and hisses without covering 2/3rds of your vocal artist's face. The most subtle and convenient way of getting the most out of every single recording.
Stereo recordings with one LCT 640 TS?
Usually, stereophony can only be done with two microphones. But now, it is way easier to use one LCT 640 TS. Just point the side of the microphone to the signal source and record both outputs on a stereo track in your DAW. Change the panorama for both signals to adjust the stereo width.
Perfect Match technology
Every single LCT 640 TS undergoes a series of measurements followed by adjustment of the polarization voltage to achieve exactly the same sensitivity at 1 kHz in every microphone.
Innovative features make life easier
It is easily possible to miss if clipping occurred during the recording. Clipping History lets you know if the microphone clipped since it was last turned on.
LCT 640 TS
Change the polar-pattern - even after the recording
Designed and engineered in Austria, LEWITT’s new LCT 640 TS will revolutionize the way we think about the recording process. Set to Dual Output Mode the signal of the mics front and back diaphragm is provided by independent circuitries, any kind of polar pattern can be realized dynamically - even after the recording. Already recorded material can be changed dynamically by adjusting the polar pattern - room sound can be added or decreased, even a turn by 180° is possible. After recording with the LCT 640 TS you can use LEWITT’s POLARIZER plugin to tweak the material with incredible ease of use. In Multi-Pattern Mode the LCT 640 TS has all the well-known characteristics of a great sounding studio multi-pattern condenser mic. It features five polar patterns: omni, wide cardioid, cardioid, supercardioid and figure-8. Perfect Match technology takes care that all LCT 640 TS are having the exact same sensitivity at 1 kHz. The Dual Output Mode allows to record in stereo with only one LCT 640 TS - usually only possible with two microphones. Clipping History, 4 low-cut and pre-attenuation settings round off the outstanding feature list of the LCT 640 TS. The LCT 640 TS opens doors to a new world of recording techniques.
