NAMM 2019: Lewitt to launch condenser mics for home recording

Austrian microphone innovator Lewitt is bringing forth quality recording to home studios with the affordable LCT 040 MATCH and LCT 140 AIR, debuting the new products at The NAMM Show 2019

Lewitt will showcase its new condenser mics – the LCT 04 MATCH and LCT 140 AIR – at the upcoming NAMM show, in Hall A, booth 11110.

Lewitt LCT presents an award-winning range of small and large-diaphragm condenser and tube microphones that offer a modern alternative to older, more traditional designs. They are now being made available for those who want to record in their home studio, providing an affordable option.

Debuting at just $99, the compact LCT 040 MATCH is designed ergonomically for maximum positioning flexibility, and it produces the natural qualities of acoustic instruments, ranging from acoustic guitars to drums and strings.

The LCT 040 MATCH stereo pair, launching for $189, enables accurate matching by using a customised process which analyses the microphones, coupling those exhibiting identical behaviour. This introduces new possibilities for studios striving to achieve the best stereo recordings of drum overheads, acoustic guitars or even choirs, for a reasonable price. 

The LCT 140 AIR, for $149, features off-axis sound suppression, pre-attenuation and low-cut filter, and the SOUND toggle allows users to switch between a linear response or a nuanced, ‘airy’ mode for open, more characterful recordings.

“We take great pride in the fact that Lewitt microphones are loved by an expanding community of high-profile engineers who want a modern alternative to old technology, and now we feel the time is right to bring the same design ethos to everyone who loves sound as much as we do,” commented Roman Perschon, founder and CEO of Lewitt. “With the LCT 040 MATCH and LCT 140 AIR, more people than ever before will have the chance to experience Lewitt, and I can’t wait to introduce them at the NAMM Show.”
