AKG Delivers Revolutionary Performance With The New Versatile C 414 Microphone Series

AKG showcases its industry leading versatility with the release of the C 414 XLS and the C 414 XL II, one of the most famous recording, live sound and broadcasting microphones since 1971. The legendary C 414 needs no introduction – it is a tool found in most recording studios and has been used on thousands of hit records; it’s been on stage with artists of every musical genre and is also used by leading broadcast facilities the world over.

The new C 414 XLS and the C 414 XLII offer nine pickup patterns that enable it to choose the perfect setting for every application. For live-sound applications and fixed installations, all controls can be disabled easily for trouble-free use, and the peak hold LED displays even the shortest overload peaks. Both mics have three switchable bass cut filters as well as three pre-attenuation levels that allow lead vocals and solo instruments to be placed in even the densest mixes.

“For over 60 years, leading musicians and engineers have used legendary AKG microphones to capture their sound so their audience hears every nuance,? said Thomas Stubics, Product Marketing Manager for Recording and Broadcast. “The C 414 family has been one of the world’s most widely-used and respected studio and stage microphones in audio history. With the new useful features and even greater ease of use, we are able to answer the demands from our ever–growing customer base all over the world.?

The C 414 XLS maintains the sonic character of the legendary C 414 B-ULS, the longest-lived C 414 model. Engineered for the highest linearity and neutral sound, it is the most universal and versatile large diaphragm microphone released in decades. Widely used for accurate, beautifully detailed pickup of any acoustic instrument, the new C 414 XLS combines proven reference quality, leading-edge technology and state-of-the-art components.

The C 414 XLII is the successor of the famous C 414 B-TL II. It shows the unique sonic signature of the highly sought-after AKG C 12, which enables lead vocals and solo instruments to be placed even in a dense mix. The unrivalled up-front sound is also well known for distant miking applications like classical music recording or drum ambience miking.

The C 414 comes complete with everything you need to create great sound recordings, including: a carrying case, a pop filter, a windscreen, and spider-type shock mounts. In addition, AKG offers both the XLII and XLS in stereo sets. The stereo sets are created by AKG’s sophisticated matching method for stunning, three-dimensional recordings.
