The classic C12 sound

The C414 XLII multi-pattern condenser microphone offers a choice of nine polar patterns for the perfect sonic capture for every application. A peak hold LED displays even the shortest overload peaks. For live sound applications and permanent installations, all controls can easily be disabled for trouble-free use.

The C414 XLII version differs from the C414 XLS version in one major respect – the capsule. The C414 XLII's slight presence boost and impressive spatial reproduction are both similar to the legendary AKG C12 microphone from 1953.

It surpassed my expectations. I sound so very good on it as not in real life. LOL. My voice is bassy and it did not enhance it although it mellowed it out. The high end was also spectacular -- sharp but not harsh. I use it for voice-overs and radio commercials.

If you then HOLD IT DOWN for a couple of seconds - AFTER choosing your shape of response - that will LOCK it again, so that it doesn&#39;t get accidentally changed. <div class="bvseo-author">Answered by: David B</div> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2021-06-06</div> </div> </div> <div class="bvseo-question-answer" data-questionid="5975180"> <h2 class="bvseo-question"> i can not click ther other botten cant chose the pattern the green light is not change in other pattern </h2> <div class="bvseo-question-detail"> </div> <div class="bvseo-author">Asked by: shakya</div> <div class="bvseo-answer" data-answerid="5936323"> We would like to get more information to help you out, please contact us so we can assist you: https://pro.harman.com/service <div class="bvseo-author">Answered by: Jem G</div> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2021-06-06</div> </div> </div> <div class="bvseo-question-answer" data-questionid="3814192"> <h2 class="bvseo-question"> Hi!
