Instrument recordings with realistic or sparkling sound: Do you prefer your instrument to sound 100% natural or with some sparkle on top? The LCT 140 AIR can do both. It features two sound characteristics, AIR and FLAT. You can easily switch to the sound that fits your purpose.
AIR adds top-end sparkle, while FLAT reproduces your sound as it is. Try both and capture the performance the way you want.
Two switchable sound characteristics: AIR or FLAT? Record the source the way you want.
AIR delivers an open, sparkling character. The right choice if you need great sound without spending time on post-production. FLAT provides a linear frequency response for the “as-it-is” reproduction of drums, strings, acoustic guitars, and choirs. It is perfect if you aim for realistic sonic images. Check out the sound samples and hear for yourself.
Excellent transient response: Capture the natural sound of your instruments.
Transients are the DNA of your instrument's sound. To retain the natural musicality of your instruments, the LCT 140 AIR delivers an excellent transient response. The natural characteristics of cymbals are captured accurately.
In any case, you get a punchy yet warm reproduction of your instrument's unique sound.
Durable and light aluminium housing: It's withstanding and easy to handle.
The LCT 140 AIR is very durable yet lightweight, thanks to its CNC'ed aluminium housing. Positioning and setup become easy tasks.
Trust your ears. Listen for yourself: This acoustic guitar was recorded with the LCT 140 AIR at a distance of 30 cm (12 in).
Interface/Preamp: Metric Halo ULN-8
Guitar: Larrivee OM-10

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.
"Great service from Aaron-already Aaron has helped me make some important early decisions for going forward.
