Lewitt has added two new microphones to its MTP Live Series.
The MTP940 (UK RRP £499) offers three switchable polar patterns – wide cardioid, cardioid and super cardioid – making it suitable for a wide range of applications; from lead vocals, public speaking and choirs, to unplugged situations involving a singer with acoustic instrument, for example.
A three-position high-pass filter allows the user to directly influence the proximity effect, and the three-position pre-attenuation pad is designed to ensure clip-free results even in the most extreme high SPL environments. The externally biased large-diaphragm provides a dynamic range of 135 dB, while the high headroom and patent-pending Direct Coupling circuit design make the MTP940 capable of delivering a self-noise level of 9dB.
The second new addition to the Series is the MTP840 (UK RRP £209), which is ideal for studio and live use. It features a circuitry design and components that were engineered to create optimal low self-noise and maximum dynamic range. A tailored frequency curve – specially designed for vocal applications – was introduced to ensure "professional sound quality." It also includes a three-step high-pass filter.
A built-in three-position amplifier makes the MTP840 an active mic, allowing for improved capturing of vocal nuances and distant sources.
LEDs on both models provide visual confirmation of the microphone's various settings.
