Sophisticated instrument recordings

Capture the natural sound of your instrument.

The real character of your acoustic instruments lies within the transients. By having an excellent transient response, the LCT 340 can reproduce the natural musicality of your instrument. 

Low-cut and pre-attenuation

Engage for a cleaner signal.

The LCT 340 is equipped with a four-position low-cut filter and a pre-attenuation slide switch. Using a low-cut filter is recommended in live situations, especially if you are recording a drum kit, to improve clarity and reduce structure-borne noise. If your source is too loud and overloads the capsule, activate the pre-attenuation to reduce sensitivity keeping the signal clean.

Cardioid or omnidirectional (optional)

Change the capsule for more flexibility.

The LCT 340 comes with a cardioid capsule which is great for unidirectional recording. One source is in focus and you'll hear a very clear signal. Get the optional omni capsule and max out versatility. The omni pattern records sound coming from every direction and has a very natural bass response. Pick the omni pattern when you record in great-sounding locations or if you want to record multiple instruments at the same time.
