Polar Pattern Selection
The LCT 1040 gives you continuously adjustable polar pattern control to get exactly what you want.

Flexible Outs
Two XLR outputs allow for full flexibility in post-production. To prepare you for all possible scenarios, the LCT 1040 features two XLR outputs with Neutrik connectors. The Mix output delivers the ratio set with the Circuit control, a combination of the tube and FET circuit. The FET output delivers 100% pure FET independent from the Circuit control.

Additional Features
The LCT 1040 includes a shock mount with carbon fiber elements and quick release mechanisms for the microphone and the adjustment of the angle. Carbon fiber elements support efficient decoupling of the microphone.

The microphone can be turned by 360 degrees when inside the shock mount.

A dual-layer magnetic pop filter is included for clean recordings. This high-performance pop filter protects your capsule from unwanted plosives and moisture. Its double-layer design perfectly integrates with the shock mount and makes sure recordings stay clean with any vocalist or genre.
