Nova large-capsule, Sputnik vacuum tube condenser, and Pulsar II small-diaphragm matched-pair microphones

Cumberland, R.I. (April 8, 2013)—M-Audio is reintroducing a number of models from their popular series of recording microphones. Created for professional and project studio recording, M-Audio microphones offer durable housings, advanced electronics, and superior sound.

“Even today, these mics remain extremely popular, so it only made sense to keep them active in the line.” says M-Audio Product Manager Hiro Shimozato. “They sound amazing, and each model offers the user a both a great value plus outstanding audio performance.”


Multi-Pattern Large-Diaphragm Vacuum Tube Condenser Microphone

Offering cardioid, figure-eight, and omni-directional patterns, Sputnik is an ideal microphone for a number of critical vocal and instrument applications. The largediameter Mylar diaphragm features an evaporated-gold coating, providing a uniform and even response. The inverse-mounted vacuum tube delivers an ultra-clean, uncolored sound. Solid brass offers integrity to the body and the tuned backplate as well. Sputnik comes with a shock mount, dedicated power supply/cable, and a custom flight case.


Large-Capsule Cardioid Condenser Microphone

Nova offers the open warmth of a large capsule design in a cost-effective microphone. Over one inch in diameter, the diaphragm is finished with an evaporated-gold coating to deliver uniform results. The body is made from solid brass, providing reliability and a substantial feel. Included with the Nova microphone are a hard mount and a zippered carry bag.

Pulsar II

Matched-Pair Small-Diaphragm Condenser Microphones

The Pulsar II matched pair microphones are ideal for evenly capturing any stereo source, from a piano to a choir. The narrow brass bodies house an internal shockmount system that helps isolate the capsules and reduce vibrations. The Mylar diaphragms are three quarters of an inch and feature a sputtered gold finish. Housed in a wooden case, the set also includes hard mounts, windscreens, and an adjustable stereo mounting bar. M-Audio will be exhibiting at Hall 5.1, Booth B45 during the 2013 Musikmesse, April 10- 13, in Frankfurt, Germany.
