Perfectly matched stereo pair

What does stereo add to my sound?

Stereo creates a three-dimensional and therefore, a more authentic listening experience. Just as with our ears, the location of a sound source can be determined by differences in level and time.

By having two matched cardioid pattern microphones, you can create perfectly balanced stereo recordings.

Easy drum recordings

Hear what you feel when you lay down that beat.

Transients are the DNA of your instrument's sound. To retain the natural musicality of your instruments, the LCT 040 MATCH delivers an excellent transient response. The natural characteristics of a hi-hat and snare drum are captured accurately.

You get a punchy and precise reproduction of your drum kit’s unique sound.

Easy acoustic guitar recordings

Capture the feel of your favorite chord.

With its fast transient response, the LCT 040 MATCH makes your acoustic guitar sound crisp and defined.

What you get is a mic for guitar recordings with fast attack and a sound that cuts through the mix.

Matching process

We match our mics precisely.

We measure the frequency response and sensitivity of every single microphone we produce. Our measurement system controls the polarization voltage of the capsule to adjust the sensitivity, so it is the same for all LCT 040 MATCH.

An algorithm compares all measured frequency responses and puts together the perfect pairs. Those get packed and sent to you.

Durable and light aluminum housing

Light as a feather it lasts every tour.

Cardioid polar pattern

Your sound is in focus.

A cardioid polar pattern picks up sound coming mainly from the front of the mic. Background noise or other instruments will not get in the way, and your signal stays perfectly clean. 

Trust your ears. Listen for yourself.

No EQ or compression.
