HARMAN Professional Solutions unveils the AKG Ara, a two-pattern USB condenser microphone. The new microphone allows content creators to capture studio-quality audio for superior speech clarity and clear vocal and instrumental tracks.
“What’s really great about Ara is that it can accomplish so many goals for a variety of users. It’s perfect for elevating interviews and video blogs with its crystal-clear sonic quality and sleek looks,” says Chris Hansen, Director of Recording and Broadcast, HARMAN Professional Solutions.
The microphone offers two pickup patterns that either focus on a single source or everyone in the room. The directional Front pattern captures sound directly in front of the mic, rejecting any other sound around it. This feature is great for podcast host and videoconferencing. The Front + Back pattern picks up sound from all sides evenly, perfect for recording interviews with multiple speakers.
“But it’s also great for gamers who really get to step up their in-game vocal delivery with a mic that sounds phenomenal. And Ara’s selectable patterns and the ability to handle up to 120 dB max SPL give musicians plenty of headroom to record everyone in the band. The best part is that Ara is plug-and-play simple, thanks to USB connectivity and class-compliant drivers,” Hansen said.
Majority of Ara’s essential functions are located on the front for easy access including pattern selection and mic muting. The small and versatile mounting options make Ara ideal for desktop and studio use. Check out their website for more information on Ara.
