Lauten Audio Atlantis FC-387 FET Microphone

Multi Voicing ®

With Lauten Audio’s Multi Voicing® technology, the Atlantis can switch between Forward, Neutral and Gentle modes. Forward is meant to deliver a bold, present, and modern sound but without getting harsh. Neutral is a smoother, more organic sound that naturally helps tame sibilance and Gentle will give you that dark, sultry, warm, vintage sound we’re all after.

Three Polar Patterns

The Atlantis features three polar patterns – figure-8, cardioid and omnidirectional. Figure-8 captures sound from the front and rear of the microphone resulting in a more open, natural recording. Cardioid captures sound from the front of the microphone only and is most commonly used for recording vocals with minimal room reflections. Conversely, the omnidirectional polar pattern picks up sound from all sides of the microphone making it ideal when your intention is to capture the sound of the room in your recordings.

Three Way Gain Staging

As if that wasn’t enough from one microphone, the Atlantis FC-387 also features three-way gain stage switching. The three settings are 0dB, +10dB and -10dB. 0dB is the default output gain selection. Use this setting when no additional gain, character, color or saturation is desired. +10dB will give you a 10dB boost when recording quiet sound sources or when using consumer-grade audio interfaces that could benefit from a bit of extra character. Switch it to the -10dB position when recording loud sound sources or when more color and saturation from high-end preamps is desired.
