Sound professionals naturally rely on a set of various high-end microphones to get the best out of their sound. But alternating microphones and adjusting settings can take valuable time, disrupting the creative flow of a session. With its Authentica series flagship LCT 940, Lewitt offers a microphone that will revolutionize modern studio recording procedures and helps both engineers and artists to react more quickly to a desired change of style and sound. It combines the specific characteristics of a premium large-diaphragm FET condenser microphone and a top-notch tube microphone, all in a single housing. Basically, users can choose between the 2 main settings "FET" and "Tube". Yet the decisive factor here is that the LCT 940 features both a tube-based impedance and a FET-based impedance converter. These 2 signal paths have been incorporated separately and work independently of each other. "Tube" delivers the classic, warm, rich tube sound, while "FET" stands for the clear, exceptionally rich and nuanced sound Lewitt condenser mics are renowned for. However, the LCT 940 offers another unique feature that true recording enthusiasts will swoon over: as the characteristics of the 2 main settings can be mixed and merged continuously, it opens up huge creative possibilities for both artists and producers.

Further, it features a total of 9 different polar patterns – Lewitt's 5 "standard" polar patterns: omni-directional, cardioid, figure-8, wide- and super-cardioid and 4 additional intermediate patterns. Additionally, it offers 3 levels of attenuation and 3 switchable low-cut frequencies, LEDs and pushbuttons for noiseless handling on the PSU. Automatic attenuation and clipping history round out its outstanding featureset.

Rich in advanced technological features, the LCT 940 opens up a new dimension of sound reproduction in demanding professional studio uses. Its unmatched set of qualities makes this microphone a must-have for recording pros who strive for nothing less than perfection.
