"The 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."
- Ross Simpson
By enabling you to record both diaphragms, the LCT 640 TS provides something different to most multi-pattern microphones. If you enjoy experimenting with recordings, this microphone would be an excellent addition to your arsenal. Furthermore, if you are looking to invest in your first multi-pattern condenser, this can always be used as a standard condenser as well as in Dual-Output Mode, and is a great-sounding microphone.
Produce Like A Pro
The LCT 640 TS provides an amazing, very balanced sound, so it lends itself to recording almost any instrument or sound source. But it also innovates in terms of the way we record music: the LCT 640 TS records both sides of its capsule simultaneously and independently, which allows you to capture stereo recordings or blend your room sound with the main recording – all in one microphone! And because it’s one single capsule, the two tracks are perfectly in phase.
Sound on Sound
The real strength of this microphone is in its ability to allow real-time and/or post-production adjustment of the polar pattern. For example, being able to move smoothly from omni through to figure-of-eight not only has an audible effect on the character of the direct sound (mainly because of the proximity effect), but also changes the sense of perspective (ie. room-sound contribution), and any spill from other sound sources.
The LCT 640 TS is an affordable mic that you will use all the time. The Dual Output Mode is so incredibly useful, I can’t see any reason not to engage it every time you record with the mic. When you have such a sonically excellent condenser like this under $900 and then add in the unique feature set, you have to try it.
