Lauten Audio LA-320 V2 Large-Diaphragm Tube Condenser Microphone

Just flip the switch for vintage tube-mic vibe or modern clarity with Lauten Audio's twin-tone tube condenser, priced within reach of home studio artists!

The Lauten Audio LA-320 is a twin-tone tube microphone that allows you to choose between the warmth and body of a vintage tube microphone and the clarity and presence of a modern tube microphone at the flip of a switch. Classic tube microphones were made for a signal chain that you don't have, so Lauten designed the LA-320 to sound great without it. Centered around a custom-made Lauten Audio capsule and hand-soldered tube circuit path, Lauten's unique microphone design gives you the musical color and gentle compression associated with classic signal chains but straight into your audio interface.

Two Tube Mics in One

The LA-320's onboard sound-shaping eliminates the need for mic swaps and wasted time. Choose between the warmth of a classic tube microphone and the clarity of a modern tube microphone at the flip of a switch. Capture the wood of a worn-out acoustic guitar and the air of a pop vocal with the same microphone at the flip of a switch.

Custom-Crafted Capsule

Unlike classic capsule designs, Lauten Audio's hand-tuned 32mm transducer naturally imparts gentle compression and balance to any sound source, making it ideal for use on traditionally troublesome applications. This means getting a great recording in the real world is faster and easier.

Finished Sound Without the Signal Chain

The LA-320 isn't flat –- it sounds like music. Lauten Audio believes every microphone they make should stand on its own and make your life easier. Does the LA-320 sound great read more with a high-end signal chain? You bet! Does it need one to deliver powerful, present sound out of the box? Not at all.

Inside Story

The LA-320 is hand-soldered with high resolution, low distortion polypropylene capacitors and resistors, a dual triode vacuum tube, and a vintage-inspired output transformer. The resulting sound is crisp, clear, and full without the high noise floor and delicacy of vintage microphones.

This mic sounds amazing on vocals. I’ve owned a lot of entry level mics, Blue Bluebird, Blue Spark, Audio Technica at 2020 and several different USB mics, the sound quality from this mic blows them all out of the water. Definitely the best purchase I’ve made to step up the quality of my productions.
