Audix Microphones have been around since 1984 and are recognized for their innovative design, performance, quality, durability and value. While I personally don’t own any Audix mics, I did get a chance to explore the company’s products at AES 2012 in San Francisco. In this video, Cliff Castle shows us the SCX25A studio condenser microphone.
From the Audix Website:
The SCX25A is a professional studio condenser microphone with an elegant design and a patented capsule suspension system. Uniquely shock-mounted within an intricate machined brass ring, the capsule is completely isolated from the mic body and electronics. By successfully minimizing acoustic reflections and diffractions, the SCX25A delivers a pure, open air sound with exceptional detail and realism.
The SCX25A is consistent when responding to on and off-axis signals. This mic exhibits outstanding phase coherence and minimal proximity effect. With a wide cardioid polar pattern, the SCX25A enables the sound engineer to blend the sound of the instrument or vocal with the sound of the room. The SCX25A will handle SPLs in excess of 135 dB and provides up to 20 dB of ambient noise rejection.
The SCX25A is perfectly suited to capture the sound of acoustic instruments such as pianos, guitars, vibes, woodwinds, brass, percussion toys, drums, orchestra and symphony sections.
Supplied accessories include heavy duty snap to fit nylon clip and foam lined wood case.
