The Lauten Audio Atlantis FC-387 FET Microphone is a multi-pattern and Multi-voicing large diaphragm FET studio condenser microphone designed for engineers looking for an extremely diverse, unique and modern FET sound.
Lauten Audio's Atlantis FC-387 offers full and rich, low and mid-range frequencies as well as smooth and unique high-mid and high frequencies no matter which voicing setting is selected.
The voicing switch makes the Atlantis an extremely diverse microphone. The options are F (Forward), N (Neutral) and G (Gentle). Forward offers a very open response and very modern, revealing sound. Neutral is a more even response with slight de-emphasis on mid and high frequencies for a more classic sound. Gentle offers the ability to tame harsh, bright or very forward sources or for a very vintage sound. As you will see below, each voicing setting has a unique frequency response; it's like getting three microphones in one.The multi-voicing feature is an extremely powerful option when recording vocals and many other sources. No need to swap out different microphones or EQ on the way in; simply flip the switch on the rear, compare the various timbre qualities and start recording.
Unique 3-way Gain Switch
The Atlantis also features Lauten's unique three-position attenuation and gain switch. The +10dB gain switch, which boosts the microphone's output, makes it less dependent on preamps to achieve excellent sound. This is an excellent option when you want to hear more of the microphones internal character rather than the preamp. The -10dB Pad gives you the option to record very loud sources adding even more options to this extremely diverse microphone.

What We Think
The Atlantis FC-387 FET is an awesome sounding microphone with a lot of features! The multi-voicing switch is super useful, and each option has its own distinct timbre. This microphone allows you to tailor the sound to your source. For example, on my acoustic guitar, I really like the F/Forward to be engaged as it adds a nice top-end presence. For my voice though, I feel F is a bit too bright, so I prefer the N/Neutral setting. Some sources with a lot of top-end may benefit from the G/Gentle setting. This setting has a nice way of softening things, like a ribbon mic – great for taming harder transients. Utilizing the different options on this microphone is a great way to add some tonal separation in a mix. Try the N/Neutral setting on a lead vocal and then switch to F/Forward for your harmonies to help them shine above guitars in a dense rock mix. You also have additional polar pattern options and a +/- 10db switch. If you’re only going to have one microphone, this is a GREAT option as you’re really getting three in one – nine in one if you consider the polar pattern options! - Wes DeLoach - Pro Audio Sales Rep
