Audix set a standard for the studio condenser microphone: it must be able to record exceptional sound at every level – from home studios to elaborate recording or broadcasting facilities. The studio condenser microphones found in this section are utilized to capture vocal, instrument and ambient sounds. While designed for the studio, it is not uncommon for Audix studio condenser mics to be featured on live stage as well.
Like the lens of a camera, the different microphone capsule sizes provide different snapshots of the voice or instrument, providing the studio engineer with a wide variety of creative choices for which to record. The SCX Series consist of two superb microphones for studio and live mediums. Both models are designed, machined, assembled and tested at Audix headquarters in Oregon.
The CX Series are traditional large diaphragm condenser microphones, offering a combination of performance and value. The CX212B utilizes a switch allowing a choice of cardioid, omni and figure 8 patterns.
The ADX51 is an electret condenser that offers exceptional performance and flexibility, while the M1280B is an example of miniaturized condenser technology with unsurpassed sound quality.
The ADX51 is a professional pre-polarized condenser microphone used for stage, studio and broadcast applications. The ADX51 is known for its clear, accurate response and flexibility to handle close or distance miking for a wide variety of acoustic instruments.
Characterized with a uniformly controlled cardioid polar pattern, the ADX51 condenser microphone is designed to capture the acoustics of the instrument being miked while at the same time isolating it from the rest of the instruments on stage. With a wide frequency range of 40 Hz - 18 kHz, the ADX51 features a 14 mm gold vapor diaphragm and a -10 dB pad and bass roll-off filter at 150 Hz.
The ADX51 cardioid studio condenser microphone is very easy to position, durable and manufactured to high standards and tight tolerances. The ADX51 has a precision machined brass body, durable black E-coat finish, steel mesh grill, and gold plated XLR connector.
