Rediscover your instrument and voice on a whole new level of musical detail. With the LCT 540 S, we set a new benchmark in terms of capturing fine-grained details of your recording source. Our unique approach towards electronics and capsule design makes the microphone better than human hearing. Record details of your voice and instruments that usually wouldn’t even be audible. Make every detail count.
The LCT 540 S reveals unheard dimensions of musical detail. You can create ultra-resolution sonic images of your vocals and instruments. Make even the subtlest nuances sound crystal clear. Produce vibrant recordings and rediscover sound with depth and musicality. Every single part is meticulously calibrated pushing this microphone to capture even more details than human hearing.
Our hearing threshold is very frequency-dependent. It is less sensitive towards low and very high frequencies and most sensitive around 2 – 5 kHz. With our specific and unique approach towards circuit and capsule design, we were able to realize self-noise that'll stay below the threshold of hearing across the entire frequency spectrum.
With its cutting-edge circuit and capsule design, the LCT 540 S features an impressive dynamic range of 132 dB to capture everything from loud to subtle. You won’t hear the self-noise of the mic even after heavily compressing the signal. Material recorded with the LCT 540 S is fit for extreme processing.
To measure the self-noise of the LCT 540 S, we built a unique device. It's ten times more massive than conventional ones, weighing over 4500 kg or 9900 lbs in total. This amount of mass will dampen frequencies up to a 1/10,000th of their sound pressure. The frequency range from 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz is dampened by 60 dB, up to 80 dB on the higher frequencies.
