Overview

A classic reborn with nine selectable pickup patterns, lock mode and more.

The AKG C414 XLII condenser microphone is the successor to the famous AKG C414 B-TL II mic. The AKG C414 XLII mic shows the unique sonic signature of the highly sought after AKG C12 which enables lead vocals and solo instruments to be placed even in a dense mix. The unrivaled up-front sound is also well-known for distant miking applications like classic music recording or drum ambience miking. The XLII mic version differs from the XLS version in one major respect-the capsule. Both the slight presence boost and the impressive spatial reproduction is similar to the legendary AKG C12 microphones.

The AKG C414 XLII offers nine pickup patterns for you to choose the perfect setting for every application. For live-sound applications and permanent installations, all controls can be disabled easily enabling trouble-free use. A Peak-Hold LED displays even shortest overload peaks. AKG ships the C414 XLII microphone complete with carrying case, pop filter, windscreen and a spider-type shockmount.

Features

  • Sonic character of the famous AKG C12
  • Nine selectable polar patterns
  • Three attenuation levels (-6,-12,-18dB)
  • Three switchable different bass-cut filters
  • Overload warning with audio peak hold LED
