AKG Ara USB Condenser Microphone

The AKG Ara two-pattern USB microphone lets podcasters, bloggers, gamers and musicians capture pro-quality, high-resolution sound right from their desktops. Whether you’re streaming or recording, capture audio at up to 24-bit, 96kHz resolution for crystal-clear speech clarity and stunning vocal and instrument tracks.

Pro-Grade, High-Quality Sound Record professional-quality audio at up to 24-bit, 96kHz resolution for ultimate speech clarity and stunning vocal and instrument tracks. Gamers experience the thrills of fidelity that outperforms headsets, and videoconferencing is elevated with crystal-clear sound that’s far superior to built-in laptop or phone mics. And with a max SPL of 120 dB, there’s plenty of headroom for recording high-output instruments like drums, horns and electric guitars.

Record Anything With Capsule Array Modes Ara provides two selectable pickup patterns for maximum versatility. The directional Front (cardioid) pattern captures sound directly in front of the mic while rejecting sound from other sides; it’s perfect for podcast hosts, bloggers, gamers, videoconferencing and miking instruments. The Front and Back (omni) pattern picks up sound evenly from all sides, making it ideal for capturing interviews with multiple speakers, tracking multiple singers and instruments, or recording ambient sounds on location.
