Audio Media International released a very detailed new review about the LCT 640 TS. Read the full review here!
Conclusion: "The Lewitt LCT 640 TS is the swiss army knife of microphones and is always ready for action. It is a pleasure to use, well designed and built to last. It holds some weight but not so much that it would give you boom arm issues, and it is attractively priced for a multi-pattern mic (or two mics really) especially with plenty of accessories. I like the novel LED lights and multiple choices of pads and filters. The online manual explains things well enough and I think it’s safe to say that, given its price and performance, the LCT 640 TS will be a big hit.
And so for the “fix it in the mix” aspect – do we want or need these options in post-production? For us who have spent years developing an ear for the right microphone selection, in the right position, located in the right space, with the best settings for the sound source, will using this new mic cause us to be accused of over ‘vocal-shopping’ the end product? The answer I believe is down to the individual and how they like to work. I for one like this mic for it’s quality, pad, filter and pattern options, plus the stereo recording, but would probably not actually use it’s post-production features, although, having said that, who knows when I might actually need it to ‘fix’ an imperfect take!"
