Audix SCX1 Professional Studio Condenser Mic Available in 3 Patterns

The SCX1 is a professional studio cardioid condenser microphone designed for a wide variety of recording, broadcast, and live sound applications. Known for its high sensitivity, pin-point accuracy, low profile, and consistency, the SCX1 is also available with hypercardioid (model SCX1HC) or omnidirectional (model SCX1O) capsules.

With a smooth uniform frequency response from 40 Hz – 20 kHz, the SCX1 is very consistent when responding to on and off-axis signals, and exhibits excellent phase coherence and minimal proximity effect. The SCX1 is characterized by a wide cardioid polar pattern; this, coupled with the high output and sensitivity of the microphone, makes the SCX1 an ideal choice for miking overhead, drums, instruments, room ambiance, orchestral sections, stringed instruments, piano, vibes, and sound effects. The SCX1HC condenser microphone is a number one choice for miking hi-hat both live and in the studio.

Other features include a 21 mm gold vapor capsule, miniaturized electronics, and an extremely small footprint. The SCX1 will handle sound pressure levels of 130 dB and will provide up to 20 dB of ambient noise rejection. In addition to acoustic instruments, the SCX1 is an excellent choice for group vocals, speech, or Foley work. The SCX1HC has become a popular choice for interior dialogue boom pole miking. It has a precision machined brass body, interchangeable capsules, black multi-layer class ‘A’ liquid finish, and gold plated XLR connector. The SCX1 studio condenser microphone is manufactured to exacting standards and tight tolerances.
