As the Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim approaches, we’re offering Mix readers exclusive sneak peaks of some of the new products debuting at the show.
Blue Microphones announces Reactor ($499 MSRP), a large-diaphragm condenser microphone that combines large-format capsule technology with an innovative pattern selection method with a swiveling capsule head for precise positioning. Featuring Blue’s premium condenser capsule and proprietary preamp circuit, Reactor allows for noiseless live switching between the three distinct patterns (cardioid, omni or bi-directional).
“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,” says 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 multiple mic setups more accessible.”
