Studio Condenser Microphones and Preamps:

  • Line Audio CM4:

    Small size sub-cardioid condenser microphone. The CM4 follows and replaces the recently discontinued CM3.

    Our opinion: Successor of the CM3 and still one of the most neutral microphones on the market. A must have.

    Overview:
    • This little microphone has a natural, detailed and balanced response. Perfect for natural reproduction of acoustical instruments such as members of the bowed and plucked string-families, grand piano, brass, percussion, overhead choir and voice -with a minimum of colouration. The linear off axis performance is beneficial with large sound sources and for stereo recording, preserving sound character at an angle.
    • The CM4 is tough enough to handle drums with full depth and punch, drum overhead clearly and crisp without strain. It also handles amplified instruments well.
    • It's suitable for professional studio and PA use, with a pricetag at the hobbyist level.
    • Its very small size (about the same as a normal XLR plug) makes it easy to place, without being in the way. Its size and black colour makes it close to invisible on stage.
    • During manufacturing each capsule is measured, selected, and modified by us to close tolerances. Out of range capsules are rejected. This in combination with the internal circuitry, results in a response with a unique flatness. These are quality microphones made for demanding situations.
    • Windshield and holder/clip included (as shown).
    • Hand-Made in Sweden.

    Configurations:

  • Line Audio Omni1:

    Small size Omnidirectional condenser microphone. Replaces the well known previous incarnation, absolutely identical technically, but renamed for legal reasons.


    Our opinion: Like the CM3 / CM4, the Omni1 is extremely neutral and unique in its price range. Perfect for location recording, Classical music and also in the recording studio. Free Field/Linear response.

    Overview:
    • This omnidirectional microphone has a natural, detailed and balanced response.
    • Perfect for natural reproduction of acoustical instruments such as members of the bowed and plucked string-families, grand piano, brass, drum overhead, percussion, overhead choir and voice -with a minimum of colouration.
    • The response is very smooth and flat, with fine off axis performance.
    • It's suitable for professional studio and PA use, with a pricetag at the hobbyist level. The small size (about the same as a normal XLR plug) makes it easy to place, without being in the way. Its size and black colour makes it close to invisible on stage.
    • During manufacturing each capsule is measured, selected and trimmed by us to close tolerances. Out of range capsules are rejected. This in combination with the internal circuitry, results in a response with a unique flatness. These are quality microphones made for demanding situations.
    • Windshield and holder/clip included (as shown).
    • Hand-Made in Sweden.

    Configurations:

  • Line Audio CMEA:

    Shockmount system (released July 2022).

    Our opinion: This shockmount is smaller than the CMEH, lighter, with very good balanced isolation as well.

    Overview:
    • Suitable for 20mm diameter light weight microphones such as CM3, CM4 and Omni1.
    • This is for the Adapter only (picture shown on the left) and it goes into the K&M 85035 clip, which is included with all new CM4 and Omni1 microphones. (Additional K&M 85035 clip/holders, custom 20mm version, available upon request).
