Lewitt Audio Ray XLR Condenser Microphone

Magic? No, it's the Lewitt Ray! Based on Lewitt's LCT 440 PURE condenser, this smart mic senses how far away you are and automatically evens out your levels.

Imagine recording vocals was as easy as taking pictures with your phone. RAY is the first microphone to make this a reality. Featuring LEWITT's sensor-based technology called AURA, RAY dynamically adapts your levels and tone according to your distance to the microphone. It's like autofocus but for your voice. Instead of perfectly sharp pictures, you're getting perfectly balanced recordings. With the groundbreaking AURA Technology and MUTE by Distance feature, RAY completely changes how you interact with a microphone. And with its Record-Ready sound, voice recordings for podcasts, streaming, content, and music production become easier than ever.

The magic of LEWITT's AURA technology
RAY overcomes major limitations that conventional microphones share - to ensure consistent sound quality you need to keep the proper distance and avoid moving around. Usually, when moving close to a mic, your sound becomes loud and boomy, known as the proximity effect. When moving away, your levels drop, and your sound gets thin.

RAY changes these rules with AURA, a sensor-based technology that precisely adapts your level and tone depending on your distance to the microphone. It's like autofocus for your voice. You can focus on your performance while creating flawless recordings for podcasts, content, live streaming, and music production.

MUTE by Distance - a revolutionary way to mute your signal
RAY introduces MUTE by Distance. Easily set a specific distance to automatically mute/unmute read more your signal. Step away from your microphone, knowing your audio will be muted or go live as you approach it. It's a game-changer for your live performance, stream, and content alike.

A MUTE button directly on your XLR microphone
RAY is the first professional XLR microphone with a dedicated MUTE button. You get clear visual feedback when MUTE is engaged, and it also works when MUTE by Distance is activated. This convenient way to control your audio is perfect for streaming, podcasts, and video meetings.

Featuring LEWITT's Record-Ready sound
RAY embodies the signature LEWITT Record-Ready sound that artists, creators, and renowned studios have come to adore. This Record-Ready sound makes recording easy and gives you a polished sound from the start. The only thing you need to do is press record.

1-inch true condenser capsule and high-end studio specs
A 1-inch true condenser capsule is the "gold standard" for detailed vocal recordings. RAY's gold-sputtered capsule comes with a cardioid polar pattern that records everything in front of the microphone while rejecting sound coming from behind.

With an incredibly low self-noise of just 8 dB(A), and the capability to handle sound pressure levels of up to 131 dBSPL, RAY will ensure your performance is never limited on the technical side.

With AURA off, RAY delivers the same outstanding results for vocal and instrument recordings as LEWITT's best-selling studio recording microphone, the LCT 440 PURE. RAY uses a completely analog signal path and a gold-plated 3-pin XLR connector to integrate it to your current audio setup. All features are powered via the 48V phantom power coming from your audio interface or preamp.

Compact and camera-friendly design
RAY's compact design perfectly integrates with the included shock mount which reduces low-frequency rumble and structure-borne noise. The camera-friendly pop filter attaches magnetically to the shock mount, ensuring it stays in place. This clever pop filter makes it easier to show your face to the camera, read a script, or view a screen while using the microphone.
