Product Description

The Aphex Microphone X sets a new standard for sound quality and features for a USB microphone by including an Aphex optical compressor and the famous Aphex Aural Exciter and Big Bottom processors in the analog domain. The optical compressor provides a consistent output level, while the Aural Exciter and Big Bottom processors add presence and air to the high frequencies and depth to the low frequencies in a way that no EQ ever could.

This condenser microphone features a great sounding, high performance capsule with a low-mass diaphragm, custom-engineered for Aphex to have extended frequency response and superior transient response. The cardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of the desired sound source.

Applications

Home Recording: Whatever software you use, Microphone X will provide amazing results without having to buy any external hardware!

Podcasting: Make your Podcasts standout from the rest by providing excellent sound quality. Keep your listeners coming back for more!

Voiceover and Narration: Are you tired of sending out demos for voice over and narration jobs and getting no replies? Use the processing power of the Aphex Microphone X and get noticed!

Analog Aural Exciter & Big Bottom Processing

Microphone X features the famous Aphex Aural Exciter and Big Bottom processors to enhance your sound before it is broadcast or recorded. These features can provide that "larger than life" radio voice for Podcasts or a warm and present tone for vocalists.

Analog Optical Compressor

Microphone X features an Aphex optical compressor. This keeps your dynamic range under control and provides a consistent input level to the DAW without clipping.

High Output Headphone Amp

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
