Step up to Limelight, and you'll immediately hear the difference — and your audience will too.


Designed by an expert team of engineers, Limelight combines a modern circuit with a professional dynamic capsule to produce smooth, clear broadcast audio.

Limelight features a tailor-made frequency response of 50Hz - 20kHz, sculpted for close-range vocal frequencies and designed to reduce the noise.

512 Audio is built on the Warm Audio legacy.

Built on the vintage-inspired professional audio legacy of Warm Audio, Limelight was engineered with modern circuitry and mic design to meet the needs of today's broadcasters and podcasters.


With a hyper-focused pickup pattern that's nearly 20% narrower than a standard cardioid microphone, Limelight captures your voice while rejecting unwanted room noise around you.


No pops - Built-in pop shield blocks intrusive plosives, like ppp's, bbb's, and fff's, for an uncompromised sound and less audio cleanup in post.

No low-end rumble - User-switchable low-frequency filter prevents unwanted noise and low-end rumble for more control over your sound.

360° swivel mount - Achieve perfect placement on a mic stand or boom arm.

Gear advice

Are you looking for the right gear for your recording set-up and budget?

Choosing the correct item for your home recording set-up is easy for some and confusing for most. Even if you have been working with audio for years, things are constantly changing. The marketing guff and searching the net usually sends you down a rabbit hole of time-wasting.
The core of Indigo Oak Studio is to help people set up and record by taking the mystery and costs out of recording. Right now, that cost you will save is time, patience and disappointment.
