Lauten Audio has begun shipping three new studio microphones: the Oceanus LT-381, the Clarion FC-357 and the Torch ST-221.
“We are very excited to begin shipping and filling our pre-orders,” says Brian Loudenslager, Founder of Lauten Audio. “I am really proud of everyone involved that made these new mics come to life.”
The highly anticipated Oceanus LT-381 features a newly designed large dual-diaphragm capsule, NOS military grade pentode input, transformer-less triode output, and variable omni, cardioid and figure-8 polar patterns. It is an original high-performance tube condenser microphone that produces full and detailed recordings. List: $1599
The Torch ST-221 is a small diaphragm tube microphone that is packaged in pairs. These microphones feature interchangeable cardioid and omnidirectional capsules, NOS military grade
vacuum tubes and premium high-resolution electronics.
The Torch combines the characteristics of the small diaphragm and the tube, making it an ideal choice for recording instruments. The package includes 21 components and accessories. List: $1499
The Clarion FC-357 is a solid-state multi-pattern large diaphragm condenser microphone, with a blend of classic and modern FET sound. It has class-A electronics and a dual-diaphragm
capsule capable of omnidirectional, cardioid and figure-8 polar patterns.
It also features a unique three-position attenuation and gain switch, which offers powerful recording options. List: $799
“Each of these models offers a unique sound to recordists, and all of the Lauten Audio studio microphones are designed to compliment each other,” says Loudenslager. “The feedback we received from our pre-release evaluations beat our expectations and really validated what we wanted to accomplish. I am very confident we have raised the bar for original sound and innovation as a boutique brand.”
“We are proud to offer a truly different microphone brand in the US,” says Erik Papp of Summit Audio, which is Lauten Audio’s sale representative in the US.
“From the beginning of working with Lauten Audio I have been excited about being involved with a microphone manufacturer that is creating unique products. I have a lot of respect for their ability to successfully create original designs. After years in development with the new products, we have really great products to offer.”
