SoundField ST350 surround mic now available
Las Vegas Pro Audio is now shipping the new portable ST350 microphone system with SoundField's technology in a miniaturized package. The ST350 is comprised of a lightweight multi-capsule microphone and fully-featured compact mic-pre/control unit that generates surround and stereo simultaneously at balanced line levels.
The new microphone electronics are capable of driving long cable runs, enabling the microphone to be positioned hundreds of yards away from its control unit or alternatively handheld on a short boom. Control features include high-performance mic preamps with discretely switched 6dB gain steps and composite five-segment LED monitoring. Continuously variable control is offered over the stereo polar patterns from omni through to cardioid and figure-eight with a width control providing everything from mono to wide image stereo. End-fire and invert controls are provided to correct for 3-D microphone positioning while still maintaining the correct stereo and surround perspective. Other features include hi-pass filtering to reduce rumble and wind noise, switchable M/S output and headphone monitoring.
