Anaheim, CA (January 13, 2011)–Blue Microphones has launched Reactor, a multi-pattern, large-diaphragm condenser microphone, featuring Blue’s condenser capsule and proprietary preamp.
Reactor reportedly allows for noiseless live switching between three distinct patterns (cardioid, omni or bi-directional). The mic unites a pattern selection method with a swiveling capsule head for positioning. Like all of Blue’s professional studio microphones, Reactor employs fully discrete, Class-A, solid-state components for use in professional recording.
“Reactor takes microphone technology and design to the next level, combining Blue’s high-quality sound capture with intuitive pattern switching and physical microphone design,” said John Maier, CEO of Blue Microphones. “With Reactor, we are excited to offer multiple patterns and high-end audio capture to a wider audience, along with making mulitple mic setups more accessible.”
A custom-designed shockmount and pop filter are included.
