Dual triode 12AX7 tube for warm sound - Get to the heart of that iconic tube sound.

Remote control and power supply in one - Make yourself comfortable.
The user interface on the remote control with an integrated power supply allows a quick setup of polar pattern, pre-attenuation, and low-cut.
It is easy to check or change the settings on the remote power supply unit, even in complete darkness due to its illuminated user interface.
Multi-pattern design - Here are your five classic patterns.
A polar pattern affects how much room sound you end up recording. But switching your polar pattern not only changes the directivity, it also alters the frequency response, resulting in a different sound.
You can also control the proximity effect and have it pronounced or reduced according to your application.
"The LCT 840 sounds like a very warm-sounding U87 with a cleaner low end, and it really solved a lot of my EQing issues."

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. It's clear he has an ability to keep things in understandable terms for noobs like me, and I have no doubt he can scale up the advice for all levels. Cheers Aaron and look forward to our next sesh. Pete"
