Review LCT 640 TS

Pro Sound News Magazine

"We recorded Ray Levier’s drums with a single LCT 640 TS above the kit. In the mix stage with the Polarizer plug-in, you can move the slider from left to right across the various polar patterns and dynamically change the sound of the kit. In Omni, you get the full spectrum of front and back."

"This is a valuable production tool; we liked different positions for some pieces we recorded. Also, we then copied the track and plug-in, reversed the phase, and had a totally separate room mic to mix in.

We recorded shakers, hi-hats, acoustic guitar, drums and percussion using the LCT 640 TS and it was really useful to play around with the Polarizer to explore what setting worked best for each piece of music. The mic has a nice forward presence and sounded excellent on every source. It’s very versatile—not only because of its ability to change polar patterns, but because by pointing the side of the LCT 640 TS to the source, you can capture MS Stereo."
