The Lewitt LCT 940 is a top-notch studio-grade mic packed with more features than you can count. The first of its kind, it unifies the characteristics of a premium large-diaphragm FET true condenser microphone and a top-notch tube microphone. With "Tube" you get warmth and musical harmonics with a bit of vintage touch which has become extremely sought after, while "FET" gives you clear and nuanced sound. You can blend tube and FET circuits at any ratio and find your ideal mix. This way you can dial in the perfect combination of warmth, punch, and clarity to adapt the LCT 940 to different voices.
You can switch between 9 polar patterns with the knob on the power supply unit, so you can change it while recording without making noise. There is also a 4-position switchable pre-attenuation pad (0 dB, 6 dB, 12 dB, and 18 dB) for handling extremely high sound pressure levels, and you can even set it on auto PAD to automatically adjust itself (see manual for instructions), and 4-position high-pass filter (linear, 40 Hz, 150 Hz, and 300 Hz). The mic is also see-through and lets you see the glow of the tube, which adds a great vibe to the studio.
So if you want an ultra-quiet self-noise, great sounding, excellent mic with all the bells and whistles, then this one might be for you.
