CAD 1600VP

The 1600VP is a continuously-variable pattern condenser hanging microphone system with remote polar control and anti-rotational positioning mount. The variable polar pattern with remote control allows the user to precisely adjust the shape of the pick-up pattern for best performance from a remote location. Utilizing a two-conductor shielded cable (max length 2,000 feet) between the microphone head and the pattern control box, the user can adjust the polar pattern in real time without changing capsules, microphone positions, or inducing noise in the audio chain.

Special attention has been given to the frequency response and sensitivity of the microphone while utilizing the variable-pattern control to precisely alter the shape of the pick-up pattern. The large diameter, low-noise elements produce a frequency response of 40Hz to 20KHz with a selectable, recessed 80Hz, 12dB/octave high-pass filter that removes unwanted low-frequency energy when engaged. The filter control is conveniently located on the control box.

The microphone head is made of commercial grade aluminum, the control box is made of hardened steel, both manufactured in the USA. The microphone head is painted matte black for an unobtrusive yet stylish appearance. The remote polar pattern control box can be mounted in a single rack unit shelf with optional accessories. Up to six control boxes can be mounted in one rack unit - Astatic RU1. The polar pattern dial is positioned for easy adjustment on the fly and can be secured with a single “Flat Style” blank panel when rack mounted.

The 1600VP has been designed to resist interference from devices such as cell phones, two-way communication devices and lighting apparatus. Utilizing our RF Resistant Architecture, the 1600VP meets the stringent RF standards set by the European Union (see the specification section for more information).

The 1600VP comes complete with 30' (9.1m) of two-conductor shielded cable terminated with a TA3F type connector and XLRM-type connector. Also included with the microphone system is a 3-pin XLRF connector on a stainless steel duplex wall plate, exclusive articulating steel hanger, and anti-twist thread and rods.

The 1600VP is primarily designed for recording and sound reinforcement of choirs, instruments and ambient miking. The 1600VP can also be used for vocal pick-up in government, institutional and business applications. The 1600VP is designed to be suspended from a ceiling. The optional miniature-boom (MB-1), allows the microphone system to be used on a free-standing microphone post.

The 1600VP microphone system is designed to shorten the list of products an audio designer needs to consider when hanging microphones are specified. The remote variable polar pattern control allows the installer or end user the ability to change polar patterns when installed or from scene to scene. Adjustments to the pick-up pattern can be done on the fly without costly lifts, ladders and capsules. Choose the 1600VP for your next overhead microphone install.

Apex460B Multi-Pattern Tube Condenser

The Apex460B is a high performance wide diaphragm vacuum tube studio condenser microphone that delivers incredible versatility and tone. Competing easily with far more expensive microphones in its class, the Apex460B is an outstanding choice as the main microphone for any professional studio, home studio, or any of the computer based direct to hard drive recording system.

The 12AT7 tube in the Apex460B's preamp stage offers warmth and a smooth transient response not available in solid-state microphone design. The Apex460B has nine different selectable polar patterns easily available from a selector switch on the front panel of the external power supply.

Rather than limiting the user to the three popular patterns (Omnidirectional, Cardioid, and Figure-Eight pattern) most commonly available, the Apex460B has three gradient stages between each position. This allows the studio engineer or home recordist far more versatility especially in vocal applications where an omnidirectional pattern isn't quite 'fat' enough, but cardioid is too narrow.

Due to their rugged construction, high SPL handling capability and affordable price, the Apex460B is also an outstanding choice for live sound reinforcement or live recording. They have proven themselves as a versatile overhead microphone for drum kits, for guitar or bass cabinets where superior sound quality and high sound pressure handling is required. They are also the mic of choice for saxophones, flutes, acoustic guitars or acoustic bass where subtlety and clarity is paramount.

Shure Beta 87A

The Shure BETA®87A is a premium quality supercardioid hand-held electret condenser vocal microphone with exceptionally smooth frequency response and high sound pressure level capability. Used for professional sound reinforcement, broadcasting, and studio recording applications, the Beta 87A combines superb performance with the ruggedness needed for touring and field production.

The Beta 87A features a controlled low-frequency roll-off that compensates for proximity effect and prevents the “boomy” sound often associated with close pick-up. The characteristic Shure presence rise brightens the upper midrange. The tight supercardioid pattern, with null points at approximately 125 degrees, provides maximum isolation from other vocalists or instruments while offering minimal off-axis coloration. The Beta 87A operates on phantom power.

CAD 905R

The Astatic 905R is a line-cardioid, quick-mount, miniature gooseneck condenser microphone designed for speech and vocal pick-up. The line-cardioid polar pattern (LocusTM technology) is engineered to attenuate unwanted sources outside of the +/- 45 degree acceptance angle while effectively "zeroing-in" on the desired speaker.

Astatic's LocusTM technology provides a significant improvement over other line-cardioid microphones due to diaphragm size and low-noise electronics. The 905R is appropriate for applications such as boardrooms, courtrooms, house of worship and anywhere a gooseneck microphone with optimal distance pick-up is needed. LocusTM technology allows the installer to use the 905R in place of longer miniature-gooseneck microphones without sacrificing performance. It is the perfect solution for the user who prefers not to be distracted by an obtrusive transducer.

The 905R is a commercial-grade microphone featuring an all-metal body. The 8mm steel memory-flex gooseneck and ultra-quiet movement provide for worry-free, life-long microphone operation. Special attention has been taken to design the 905R with improved RF immunity to greatly reduce susceptibility to radio interference from GSM based cell phones, PDA/cell phones with walkie-talkie capability and other similar devices.

Includes

  • CAD 905R Microphone
