TUBE // WARM // RICH // NUANCED // CLEAR // FET
... an infinite number of microphones in a single housing
The LCT 940 combines a premium large-diaphragm FET condenser microphone and a top-notch tube microphone in a single housing. Choose between the two main settings of “TUBE” and “FET”, or find your sweet spot in between - they are mixable at any possible ratio.
Honest tube sound
The dual triode 12AX7 tube delivers a warm and comforting sound with smooth high frequencies while still preserving the ability to cut through the mix. Low self-noise and high dynamic range exemplify how the LCT 940 is vintage design brought into the present.
The future of vintage
Innovation and heritage unite
The LCT 940 is like its country of origin; Vienna, Austria. It is a mixture of old and new, traditional heritage and high-tech. We love rich tube sound, and we love precision and transparency. The freedom of having both and everything in between makes the LCT 940 a dream come true for all recording professionals.
Our LC10 capsule
Precision taken to a whole new level
The externally polarized dual-diaphragm 1″ capsule captures every nuance of your performance due to its 3-micron-thin, gold-layered, low-mass diaphragms. It can handle everything from vocals to full orchestras.
Remote control unit
Illuminated user interface
The illumination of the user interface makes a quick and accurate setup of pattern, pre-attenuation and low-cut possible - even in total darkness it is easy to check or change the settings on the remote power supply unit.
Use the Tube // FET blend control - find your perfect mix of warmth and absolute precision
Automatic Attenuation and Clipping History
The LCT 940 is packed with useful features that make your recording workflow easier!
The LCT 940 provides 9 polar patterns: omni, wide cardioid, cardioid, supercardioid, figure-8 and 4 intermediates.
Tube // FET and everything in between
The LCT 940 unifies the specific characteristics of a premium large-diaphragm FET condenser microphone and a top-notch tube microphone. "Tube" delivers warmth and musical harmonics, while "FET" stands for the clear and nuanced sound for which LEWITT condenser microphones are renowned for. Use the Tube // FET blend control - find your ideal mix. The LCT 940 features a total of nine different polar patterns – five "standard" polar patterns omnidirectional, cardioid, figure-8, wide- and supercardioid and four additional intermediate patterns. The illuminated display of the remote control unit guarantees easy handling in dark environments. Automatic Attenuation, Clipping History, four pre-attenuation and low-cut filter settings round off the feature list of this outstanding microphone. The LCT 940 opens up a new dimension of sound reproduction and its unrivaled set of qualities makes this microphone a must-have for recording professionals who strive for nothing less than perfection.
