HARMAN's AKG D12 VR Showcases Versatility, Going Vocal
The newly launched HARMAN AKG D12 VR large-diaphragm cardioid microphone for recording and live applications has since been utilized as a vocal microphone in numerous applications. Many professional audio reviews reinforce the fact that D12 VR is a versatile vocal tool.
STUDIOTEC, the Finland-based distributor for AKG recently held a launch event for the D12 VR, where the mic was used for vocals and instruments. "We came to realize the fantastic quality of the D12 VR and provided our guests with perfect sounding entertainment during our launch of the mic," stated Perttu Siren of STUDIOTEC. "During the event, our guests, the artists and long-time AKG customers were thrilled to see the versatility of D12 VR and we look forward to providing the industry with the revamped piece!"
D12 VR (vintage sound re-issue) offers an ultra thin diaphragm within its newly designed capsule - normally a foil with only 7 microns of thickness is used in condenser microphones. The low-frequency performance gets enhanced with an updated bass chamber below the capsule-element. With phantom power disabled, the D12 delivers accurate, pure character from the sound source. With phantom power enabled, one of three switchable active-filter presets can be used to quickly adapt the mic's response to suit the user's desired kickdrum
