NAMM 2011: Blue Microphones Unveil New Multi-Pattern Reactor Mic
Reactor combines large-format capsule technology from Blue's renowned mic line-up with an innovative approach to professional multi-pattern flexibility in one custom-designed microphone.
Reactor unites an innovative pattern selection method with a swiveling capsule head for precise positioning.
Featuring Blue's premium condenser capsule and proprietary pre-amp circuit, Reactor allows for noiseless live switching between the three distinct patterns (cardioid, omni or bi-directional).
"Reactor takes microphone technology and design to the next level, combining Blue's high-quality sound capture with intuitive pattern switching and physical microphone design," said John Maier, CEO of Blue Microphones.
Drawing from the design of Blue's renowned B6 capsule, Reactor's capsule technology delivers a full sonic signature with a detailed top end, texture mids and a full bottom end.
Reactor is built upon Blue's premium large diaphragm, condenser capsule design, along with a custom pre-amp platform that provides low noise and distortion and silent switching between the cardioid, bi-directional and omni-directional patterns.
Featuring an innovative swiveling design, Reactor's capsule head rotates fluidly across a 90 degree range, with resistance to hold the head in a precise position.
Facilitating ease-of-use in multiple mic setups such as Mid/Side or X-Y recording, Reactor's swivel head allows for accuracy and fine-tuning of setup geometry and microphone tone.
Reactor's recording pattern selection is both intuitive and stylish, featuring LED backlit pattern indicators and a unique magnifying optic that compliments the contemporary design.
Reactor also comes with a coordinated carrying case for protection and storage. A custom-tailored shockmount and pop filter will complete the recording experience of Reactor.Posted on 12 Jan 2011 09:00 to category : Instruments News
