Lauten Audio was founded nearly a decade ago during a time when a new brand or model of studio microphone was hitting the street what seemed like every week. Lauten Audio’s founder Brian Loudenslager saw a need for well thought-out microphones with truly unique character. Eight years ago Brian began work on their first studio microphone, the Horizon.
Working in collaboration with Grammy nominated Engineer/Producer Mike Terry and Theoretical Physicist, Dr. Charles Chen Ph.D, the three started putting their heads together on what they wanted to be a unique sounding work-horse studio microphone. Two years later the Horizon was introduced. Fast-forward 8 years and Lauten Audio has become known as a leader in original sounding microphones with unique timbre and has garnered a loyal following. Most Lauten Audio owners not only love and cherish their microphones, but they consistently come back for another one, knowing it will be unique, yet compliment their other Lauten Audio microphones.
At Lauten Audio we continue to collaborate with industry professionals to help us achieve a fresh look at what our next original sounding microphone should be. We will never mimic a classic or vintage microphone and always start with a clean slate to bring you original, inspiring, microphones.
