Neumann TLM 107 Microphone

The Neumann TLM 107 Microphone is a reference class microphone for vocals and instruments with breathtaking realism. With five directional characteristics and a novel operating concept, this standard-setting large-diaphragm microphone provides sound without any coloration

The TLM 107 offers true high definition sound quality at an affordable price. Neumann developed this microphone for project and home studio users who prefer to capture an uncolored sound image, true to the original source, in order to retain all options for post processing and mixing. The TLM 107, in turn, offers all the flexibility required to make a high quality recording of any source in any situation. Neumann decided to give the TLM 107 a modern look, although the large tapered headgrille does echo the iconic design of such Neumann classics as the M 49 tube microphone. The stylish navigation toggle on the back of the microphone is a joy to use as it controls all settings in one place: pad (0/–6 /–12 dB), low cut (lin/40 Hz/100 Hz) and polar patterns (omni/wide cardioid/-cardioid/¬hyper¬cardioid/¬figure-8). The newly developed dual diaphragm condenser capsule is specially designed for the TLM 107 to offer outstanding transient response and an extended, carefully balanced frequency response for all polar patterns. This means, you can adjust the directional pattern according to the recording situation without affecting the overall sound balance. Which is quite extraordinary for a large diaphragm microphone! And, needless to say, the TLM 107 offers true Neumann quality in any setting.

Neumann Engineering
As a member of our TLM series, the TLM 107 operates with a transformerless circuit ensuring an open, transparent sound and a full, unrestricted bass transmission, even at highest levels. Two low cut settings are available to reduce rumble and compensate for the proximity effect in close miking situations. Even without engaging the two pad settings, the TLM 107 can handle enormous sound pressure levels of up to 141 dB without clipping (up to 153 dB with preattenuation). The TLM 107 has a self-noise of only 10 dB-A, which is much lower than the ambient noise in a very quiet recording studio. In other words, the TLM 107 will add neither noise nor unwanted distortion to your recordings. The TLM 107 is primarily designed for small studios but due to its no-compromise sound quality can also be used for high-end professional applications including broadcast and classical recordings. Not only is the TLM 107 an extremely versatile workhorse microphone for a wide range of instruments, such as acoustic and electric guitar, piano, upright bass, drums and percussion; it is also an outstanding vocal microphone.

    Great allrounder

    I chose this mic for exactly what the subject line says. To me an LDC with five pickup patterns, a low noise floor, and an essentially flat response is a mic I can throw at anything. It certainly has the Neumann signature sound and is impressive right out of the box. That's when it's great if you want an otherwise natural and uncolored sound. Otherwise simply go to work with swapping pres, channel strips, plugins, etc. and make it the mic you want it to be. It takes EQ very well. Be forewarned, it is truly ruler flat down to 20 Hz., which makes the rolloff subsonic. So unless you want to record the earth's rotation be sure to manage the bottom end. I've seen mild gripes about the joystick on the rear but I like it. Everything is right there. Push it in (it clicks) to activate it, and click up/down/left/right to do everything rather than working a stack of switches. Granted you can look at the typical switches on the front of most mics, but everything you can do is audibly obvious. And of course you can simply spin it around, make the changes, and spin it back. And don't freak out when you hear the subtle swishing sound. It's just saying, "hang on a sec--I'm making that change." To me it's a very nice mic with the right vibe, but not enough to narrow its applications.
