PreSonus have launched two new studio microphones to satisfy users looking for premium sound quality without the big pricetag.
The two new mics both fall into the diaphragm condenser category, making them suitable for a range of applications in the studio and the stage. PreSonus claim that both microphones offer 'exceptional clarity', and both models should be available to purchase now.
The PreSonus PX-1 features a cardioid polar pattern with a 25mm gold-sputtered capsule, constructed with 6 micron mylar. The microphone boasts a frequency response of 20 Hz to 18 kHz, with a maximum SPL of 135 dB and a noise level of 18 dB SPL A-wtd. This one's best suited to recording sung and spoken vocals as well as guitars and other stringed instruments.
The PM-2, on the other hand, is a small diaphragm condenser microphone, and is sold as a sonically matched pair intended for stereo recordings. They've got a cardioid polar pattern with 3/4 inch gold-sputtered capsules, as well as a frequency response of 40 Hz to 19 kHz, a maximum SPL of 135 dB and an equivalent noise level of 22 dB SPL A-wtd. The lightweight nature of the microphone, as well as the accompanying stereo bar, makes the PM-2 perfect for recording acoustic instruments, ensembles and drum overheads.
