The Lauten Audio LT-381 Oceanus Variable-pattern Large-diaphragm condenser microphone is great for capturing vocals, and its multiple pickup patterns provide a range of stellar sounds. The LT-381 Oceanus gives you excellent clarity, thanks to its well-designed dual-diaphragm capsule. This transformerless mic’s vintage-style power supply includes a variable pattern selector to smoothly transition between cardioid, omni, and figure-8 patterns. You get a full complement of accessories (including a wooden box, a shockmount, a 7-pin tube mic cable, and a premium flight case) with the amazing-sounding LT-381 Oceanus.
The LT-381 Oceanus features a variable polar pattern selector allowing you to choose omnidirectional, cardioid and figure-8 as well as six intermediate positions. This variable pattern selector provides the ability to achieve many variations of sound characteristics.
Internally the LT-381 Oceanus is an innovative blend of classic and modern day components. This microphone contains one of the most unique circuit topologies of any microphone in history. It utilizes a pentode vacuum tube with a carefully selected operating point as the input and gain stage, a FET signal dividing stage, and a transformer-less vacuum tube output stage. Finally, our unique vacuum tube isolation chamber reduces component temperatures as well as noise.
