STUDIO SOUND IN REAL-WORLD SPACES

The LA-220 is a two-tone FET microphone that allows you to choose between the warmth of a classic microphone and the clarity of a modern microphone at the flip of a switch. Traditional microphones were made for a signal chain that you don’t have, so we designed the LA-220 to sound great without it. Centered around a custom-made Lauten Audio capsule and hand-soldered circuit path, our unique microphone design gives you the musical color and gentle compression associated with classic signal chains but straight into your audio interface.

TWO MICS IN ONE

Choose between modern clarity and classic warmth at the flip of a switch. Is something too bright? Flip a switch. Too dark? Flip a switch. The LA-220’s onboard analog sound-shaping eliminates the need for mic swaps and downtime, which means you can focus on the main thing --- making music. Capture vocals with presence and punch or an electric guitar without any annoying high-end sizzle effortlessly.

CUSTOM CAPSULE

The LA-220 utilizes the same upgraded capsule as its larger tube sibling, the LA-320. Unlike traditional capsule designs, our hand-tuned 32mm transducer naturally imparts gentle compression and balance to any sound source, making it ideal for use in an array of string, percussion, and vocal applications.

WHAT'S INSIDE MATTERS

Hand-soldered with high resolution, low distortion polypropylene capacitors and resistors, a US-made ultra-low noise JFET, and a vintage-inspired output transformer. The result is a crisp, clear, mix-ready sound brimming with life.
