Capture The Ambience Of A Room

The Sontronics APOLLO 2 has been designed to be used as an overhead/room mic. Thanks to the uniquely designed, laser-welded cylindrical grille, the microphone is able to capture room ambience to produce a stunning and accurate three-dimensional image, bringing your instrument recordings to life. The APOLLO 2 is ideal for orchestral, choral and piano recordings, but also for capturing the ambience and character of your recording space. It is perfect for being used as an overhead mic for drums, percussion, smaller instruments, and vocal ensembles. It produces natural, expansive results with immense detail and clarity.

Superbly Balanced Tone

The APOLLO 2 boasts 2 highly sensitive ribbon elements set in an X-Y Blumlein configuration, making it ideal for all stereo miking applications. However, either of the 2 ribbon elements can be used on their own, allowing the microphone to act as a mono mic. The APOLLO 2 offers a tone with crispness and clarity in the high-end, and depth and fullness in the mids and lows. The phantom-powered circuit design and custom-wound, UK-made transformers means the APOLLO 2 requires very little gain and no EQ to produce a great sound. The APOLLO 2 also features incorporated RFI (radio frequency interference) filters that ensure the signal is kept clear, making it ideal for live use and well as in the studio.
