Townsend Labs Sphere L22

Townsend Labs Sphere L22™ mikrofonsystem gir deg nøyaktige karakteristikka og lyden av noen av de mest anerkjente (og svært dyre) studiomikrofonene som finnes. Med en grensesprengende nøyaktighet, kan du endre mikrofontype, mikrofonkarakteristikk, avstand og mikrofonvinkel - ETTER opptak. Sphere™ inkluderer en høykvalitets dobbelmembran mikrofon, som sammen med et genialt plug-in system for UAD, VST, AU, AAX Native, modellerer responsen og alle essensielle parametre, for å skape en helt tredimensjonal opplevelse av mikrofonenes egenskaper. Dette er fremtidens teknologi, som (nesten) opphever fysikkens lover. Kom innom oss og hør den i vårt showrom, og bli overbevist! Med UAD sin programvare får du lyden av legendariske mikrofoner uten forsinkelse rett i øret, og det er en sann fryd!

The Sphere L22™ microphone system from Townsend Labs models the characteristics of the most sought-after large-diaphragm condenser microphones with amazing accuracy, and allows selection of different mics and patterns even after tracking. The Sphere™ system consists of a high precision dual channel microphone, which when paired with the included Sphere DSP plug-in (UAD, VST, AU, AAX Native) accurately models the response of a wide range of mics, including transient response, harmonics, proximity effect and three-dimensional polar response.

Now You Can:

  • Record with the sound of microphones many have only dreamt about
  • Change mic type, polar pattern, and other microphone characteristics, even after tracking!
  • Audition the sound of different microphones without tiring the vocalist
  • Reduce bleed, undesirable room coloration, and other common issues using Off-Axis Correction™
  • Record in stereo from a single microphone

Breakthrough Microphone Modeling Technology
Sphere’s three-dimensional  approach captures the spatial nuances, proximity effect and off-axis frequency response of a wide range of microphones, which until now was not possible with any other product.


Dream Collection:
Access some of the most prized microphones of all time,
including a 47 (with VF14 tube), a 67, an M49, and a C12.

Sphere L22 Microphone
The Sphere system employs the high-resolution, dual-channel L22 large-diaphragm condenser microphone, custom designed to capture the three-dimensional soundfield with exacting detail. Manufactured to extremely tight tolerances, the L22 ensures that modeling is consistent and accurate.

Realtime UAD Processing
With Universal Audio Apollo, achieve extremely low latency (approx. 1.6ms round trip at 96kHz) for guaranteed real-time performance. Also supports native AAX, VST and AU.


Polar Pattern Modeling

Because Sphere captures the three-dimensional response of target microphones, it precisely emulates the polar patterns and other off-axis characteristics of vintage microphones which are essential to their unique sound.

Re-Mic Sphere Tracks
Select mic type, polar pattern and other settings both before and after tracking.

Adjustable Proximity Effect
No need to move a microphone solely because of too little or too much bass due to proximity effect. Great for punching in a vocal where distance from the mic varies from take to take.

Dual Mic Models
Dual Mode in the Sphere plug-in makes possible phase-coherent mixing of multiple virtual mic models from the same physical microphone, before or after tracking. It's also possible to adjust the relative phase alignment of the two mics with the Align control.

Sjekk ut mikrofonmodelleringen fra Ocean Way eller Bill Putnam's collection. Det er makaløst bra emuleringer!

The Ocean Way Microphone Collection plug-in, exclusively for UAD hardware and Apollo interfaces, expands the capabilities of the acclaimed Townsend Labs Sphere L22 microphone system with 12 ultra-precise emulations of the “best of the best” vintage mics from Allen Sides’ world-renowned mic locker.  Townsend Labs’ Sphere is the only microphone modeling technology endorsed by Grammy-winning engineer/producer Allen Sides to capture the sound of his vintage microphones. Every model in the Ocean Way Microphone Collection plug-in is based on what he felt are the very best representations of classic mics from Neumann,® Sony,® RCA,® AKG,® and more.*

The Bill Putnam Mic Collection plug-in, exclusively for UA Audio Interfaces and UAD hardware, adds nine vintage mic emulations — modeled from Bill Putnam Sr.’s renowned collection — to the Townsend Labs Sphere L22 microphone. These mic emulations not only nail the classic timbres of iconic mics used by Bill Putnam to track Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra, and more, they also faithfully model the transient response, harmonics, proximity effect and three-dimensional polar response of the original mics.
