Sontronics Apollo 2

Sontronics Apollo 2

Apollo 2 er en oppgradert versjon av forgjengeren. Nå bygget for hånd i England og med en utsøkt transientrespons og svært lite egenstøy. Apollo 2 er en stereo bånd-mikrofon, med aktiv elektronikk som skal ha fantommating. To stykk bånd (ribbon) elementer er festet med 90 graders vinkel i forhold til hverandre og gir deg perfekt Blumlein X/Y-stereo oppmikking. Apollo 2 har mange bruksområder, og bl.a. i Abbey Road Studio i London er den ofte brukt på orkester-grupper eller som overhead- eller ambient-mikrofon på alle slags akustiske instrumenter. Båndmikrofonens evne til å ta med alle transienter og all original dynamikk er overtruffen, og den myke diskanten låter lekkert på de aller fleste lydkilder, stemmer og instrumenter. Sontronics Apollo 2 kan vi anbefale på det varmeste.

Like the original, our APOLLO 2 boasts two highly sensitive ribbon elements set in an X-Y Blumlein configuration, ideal for all stereo miking applications.

APOLLO 2’s uniquely designed, laser-welded cylindrical grille enables the microphone to capture a truly stunning and superbly accurate three-dimensional image. This means APOLLO 2 is perfect not only for orchestral, choral and piano recordings, but also for capturing the ambience and character of your entire recording space. APOLLO 2 also works amazingly well as an overhead microphone for drums and percussion or smaller instrument and vocal ensembles, giving natural, expansive results with perfect detail and clarity in the high frequencies and a balanced depth and fullness to the mids and lows. If required, either of the two ribbon elements can be used in isolation, enabling APOLLO 2 to behave as a mono microphone.

Perfect for:
• overhead and room miking
• vocal/choral ensemble & opera
• chamber and orchestral work
• piano
• drumkit & percussion overhead

• acoustic guitar

Getting the best results from APOLLO 2 is effortless! Thanks to its phantom-powered circuit design and custom-wound, UK-made transformers, it requires very little gain and no EQ. Furthermore, our engineers have incorporated RFI (radio frequency interference) filters into the electronic design (ours are the only ribbon mics in the world to have this feature) to ensure that APOLLO 2's signal is kept crystal clear, whether being used in a recording studio or a live venue. APOLLO 2 is designed as a distance recording microphone and should be used with care as the ribbon elements are very exposed and extremely delicate. However, with sensible placement and careful handling, APOLLO 2 will bring you immense satisfaction for many years to come.

For more information about using and caring for your APOLLO 2 or servicing your ribbon elements, see our User Guide in the technical column. The microphone is supplied in a sturdy, foam-padded ABS flightcase together with its unique shockmount and stereo cable. APOLLO 2 really will take your breath away and impart a professional quality to your recordings that you didn’t imagine was possible!
