Instrument recordings with realistic or sparkling sound.
Do you prefer your instrument to sound 100% natural or with some sparkle on top? The LCT 140 AIR can do both. It features two sound characteristics, AIR, and FLAT. You can easily switch to the sound that fits your purpose.
AIR adds top-end sparkle, while FLAT reproduces your sound as it is. Try both and capture the performance the way you want.
Two switchable sound characteristics
AIR or FLAT? Record the source the way you want.
AIR delivers an open, sparkling character. The right choice if you need great sound without spending time on post-production. FLAT provides a linear frequency response for the “as-it-is” reproduction of drums, strings, acoustic guitars, and choirs. It is perfect if you aim for realistic sonic images. Check out the sound samples and hear for yourself.
Excellent transient response
Capture the natural sound of your instruments.
Transients are the DNA of your instrument’s sound. To retain the natural musicality of your instruments, the LCT 140 AIR delivers an excellent transient response. The natural characteristics of cymbals are captured accurately.
In any case, you get a punchy yet warm reproduction of your instrument’s unique sound.
Durable and light aluminum housing
