Imperative Audio Lucent

Unlimited versatility

The sound quality of the Imperative Audio Lucent equals microphones costing ten times the price. The Lucent features 3 polar patterns: cardioid, figure 8 and Omni. This will provide you with unlimited versatility as whatever recording situation you find yourself in, the option of 3 polar patterns means you’ll capture every harmonic detail with the best authenticity.

 

Astonishing price and performance

The Imperative Audio Lucent represents an astonishing price/performance ratio employing a dual gold capsule configuration to provide a well-defined frequency response. The back-to-back capsules operates via a VPM (Voltage Phase Matrix) which maintains a predictable polar pattern throughout the frequency range. The 35mm capsules are pre-aged to ensure they maintain their tight tolerances for life not just for a few months. The Imperative Audio Lucent copes well with problems such as stage borne noise by including a 10dB pad and a low-frequency roll-off, which is great for you need to remove those low frequencies that aren’t part of what’s needed to be recorded, like mic stand rumble for example.

 

Internal components

Internally the Lucent is manufactured with a pair of JFET preamps. The junction field-effect transistor preamps offer high input impedance with super low noise figures. This allows you to capture sound sources with the lowest noise platform and a wide overload margin. Resulting in the Lucent being able to perform without any comprise in any situation find yourself in.

 

What’s in the box?

Additionally, the Imperative Audio Lucent comes complete with an included foam windshield to suppress any wind noise. Alongside an elastic suspension, the ultimate answer to mount the mic as it will isolate any floor noise or mic stand bumps when recording.
