Description

The D12 VR is a large-diaphragm cardioid dynamic microphone. Designed specifically for kick-drum recording applications, the microphone has a thin diaphragm to enhance the low frequency performance. Without phantom power, the microphone delivers the pure character of the sound source. This setting is perfect for loud wind instruments and also for vocal use. With phantom power enabled, one of three switchable active-filter presets can be used to quickly adapt the microphone response to suit the desired kick-drum sound. The filter setting can be controlled using a switch on the microphone body. In this mode the output level is also reduced by 10 dB automatically.

The implementation of an active electronic filter in a dynamic microphone is an AKG patented solution. “Phantom Power” must be supplied from the connected mixing desk in order to power the active filter circuitry. The operating principle of the active filters is based on analogue circuitry combined with a transformer. Frequency processing is performed in the filter circuit and then combined with the audio signal in the transformer. Impedance differences between the microphone and other equipment are cancelled out enabling a perfect sound regardless of the connected device.

Features:

  • Four different sound shapes
  • Ultra thin diaphragm
  • Optimized bass chamber
  • Original C414 transformer
  • Cardioid polar pattern
