The Rode NT1-A is a high-quality condenser microphone designed for capturing studio-grade vocal performances in immense detail. The NT1-A features a large 1-inch capsule with a gold-plate diaphragm and a cardoid polar pattern. These premium-grade components ensure you get the best possible performance from your microphone, capturing every nuance of your vocals and maintaining the tonal characteristics. The wide dynamic range spans from 20Hz – 20kHz, ensuring you capture everything from the bass in your voice to the high-end sparkle. The high sensitivity means even though its primarily suited for vocal recordings, it can also be used as an overhead microphone or for recording acoustic instruments.
One of the most unique and prominent features of the Rode NT1-A is the ultra-low-noise performance. The self-noise level of only 5dBa makes it one of the quietest studio microphones available on the market. The low noise performance optimises your audio performance, with its minimal operating noise ensuring the best possible signal integrity and clarity. The NT1-A is also a true condenser microphone, with an externally biased design and JFET impedance converter with a bipolar output buffer.
The accessory pack that comes complete with the microphone is designed to optimise your microphone’s performance. The vocal recording pack is comprised of a shock mount, pop filter, dust cover and 20 foot XLR cable. This provides you with everything you need to set up and get professional-grade recordings. The studio-grade pop shield helps to minimise sibilance and plosive sounds, boosting your audio quality. The shock-mount helps to hold the microphone in place within the cradle, minimising any operational or handling noise while in use. The high-quality microphone cable measures at 20 feet long, making it ideal for a range of spaces from studio to home recording setups. It also comes complete with a dust cover for preserving and protecting your microphone when it is not in use.
The ART Tube MP Mic Preamp is a TEC-award nominated microphone preamplifier featuring an integrated Tube and hybrid circuitry. At the core of the Tube MP is the hand-selected 12AX7a tube. This premium-grade vacuum tube is known for its high-end sound reproduction, warmth and fatness. The resulting sound is warm yet powerful, easily cutting through any mix as a dominant sound. This allows you to add the warmth and presence of the tube to a signal, whilst still retaining the low-noise performance and high-quality audio. The hybrid design ensures optimal audio quality throughout, with the ability to process not only microphones but line-level sources and instruments for maximum versatility.
The 12AX7a vacuum tube provides 70dB of gain, providing the unique warmth and fat sound right up to the max levels. Built-in Phantom Power means the preamp can be used to process studio-grade condenser microphones for vocal recordings. The optimised sonic performance is thanks to the unique design, designed to improve the audio performance from onboard preamps normally found in mixers and interfaces. With its low-noise functionality and hybrid design shining through, the ART Tube MP one of the most sought-after preamps on the market. As well as being great as a microphone preamp, the Tube MP is also perfect as a direct input box with impedance matching and amplification of any instrument, improving your sound and signal quality.
The compact yet highly robust design provides maximum portability, allowing you to take your preamp on the move with you. A Phase Reversal switch is included in the design, ensuring maximum compatibility with a range of equipment. The portable and ergonomic design features precision potentiometers for the input and output levels, as well as convenient buttons for Phase Reverse, Phantom Power and +20dB gain. A power/clip LED light is also included, providing visual feedback for your levels.
