Your ultimate FET studio condenser microphone.

Whether you're recording studio vocals or stereo drum overheads, the LCT 640 TS is up to the task.

Its forward-thinking feature set has been officially certified by the Music and Technology Alliance (MET), consisting of top award-winning audio engineers/producers, including Elliot Scheiner, George Massenburg, and Sylvia Massy, just to name a few.

Watch the video and learn why the LCT 640 TS should be part of every microphone locker.

LCT 640 TS performer

Premium capsule

Record every detail.

For when you need beautifully bright and clear recordings, the professional-grade FET circuitry of the LCT 640 TS will let you hear every nuance of the performance.

You'll get perfect clarity, and small details will shine through, making it the best choice for vocals, stringed instruments, piano, or even ASMR recordings.

Hear examples

One mic, two channels with Dual Output Mode.

Stereo recording can be time-consuming and challenging. With the LCT 640 TS, you can record perfect, in-phase stereo with a single microphone.

The signals from the front and back of the LCT 640 capsule can be output on two separate channels, making it adaptable to both solo vocals and wide open rooms and even choirs.

More freedom and flexibility.

The LCT 640 TS gives you all the control you'll ever need from a microphone.

  • Five different polar patterns help you adapt your microphone to any source.
  • A switchable pad can attenuate up to -18dB for even the loudest performances.
  • A generous four-step roll off filter can attenuate up to 150 Hz to reduce low-end rumble and room noise.
  • The included POLARIZER plugin lets you get creative by adjusting polar patterns in your DAW.

Perfect match technology

The same sensitivity in every microphone.

Every single LCT 640 TS undergoes a series of measurements followed by an adjustment of polarization voltage to achieve the same sensitivity in every microphone. It is what we call our Perfect match technology.

If you add more LCT 640 TS to your collection, you can use any two of them as a stereo pair.

"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."

MusicTech Magazine

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.

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.
