You can find two switchable polar patterns underneath the head basket – cardioid & supercardioid, a 120 Hz low-cut filter and a 12 dB attenuation to deal with loud singers or adapt the capsule to the rest of the signal chain.
Its dual-layer design makes the MTP W950 immune to wind and pop noise and protects the capsule from condensation with a protective drip guard layer. And there’s also the incredibly handy cupping-safe design, known from other LEWITT MTP live vocal microphones, which avoids tonal coloration when gripping the head basket.
LEWITT product manager and project leader Roman Jagl is a touring sound engineer with over 20 years of experience. His expertise and field testing were essential to directly address weak points of available live microphones and solve them with innovative designs that ensure outstanding live vocal mixes without the typical tradeoffs.
“It is interesting to develop a new and innovative product for a field that you’re so familiar with. I have witnessed all the big steps forward in live sound, and I am confident that this microphone is one of them. While testing it over the last months on tour, every colleague I met immediately asked – when can I get one, haha.” Roman recalls, „but we at LEWITT would also be interested in getting your input and feedback before the planned release. That’s why we invite professional live sound engineers to participate in our beta testing program.”
You can apply for beta testing on LEWITT now, and you will find further information about the microphone on the company’s website.
The MTP W950 modular microphone system is perfect for vocals and speech applications and will be available in Q4 2022.
