AKG’s XLS mic capsule sounds great in any setting
Recording engineers at Sweetwater like AKG’s XLS mic capsule because it captures great results from anything you put in front of it. And we like it because any off-axis sounds it picks up still sound relatively natural, unlike some mics that sound significantly different when off-axis sounds are introduced. So even if you’ve got some bleed from other sound sources, you’ll still get great results from the AKG C314.
Overload indicator helps you make better recordings
While the AKG C314 microphone can handle impressive SPL levels (up to 155dB with the pad engaged), it also sports a peak indicator LED that tells you when you’re overloading the mic. When you’re setting up mics and doing a sound check you won’t need to constantly reference your monitoring system to know excessive sound levels are distorting the mic.
A great go-to mic pair for project studios
While any home recordist can appreciate the great sound and recording flexibility of the AKG C314, it really packs a lot of value for project studios that constantly record different sound sources. Even if your sessions for the weekrange from voiceovers, hand percussion, and choirs to string quartets, rock bands and foley for sound design, you’ll be able to produce exceptional results with this C314 Matched Stereo Pair.
