AIR delivers an open, sparkling character. A great choice if you need record ready sound right from the start. You can immediately use and share those recordings without spending any time on post-production.
FLAT provides a linear frequency response for “as-it-is” reproduction of drums, strings, acoustic guitars, and choirs. It's a great choice if you aim for highly realistic sonic images.
Having both options at hand makes the LCT 140 AIR a highly versatile recording tool.

This is an unprocessed audio recording. No EQ or compression added.
The LCT 140 AIR is very durable yet lightweight thanks to its CNC'ed aluminum housing. Positioning and setup become easy tasks.
The low-cut filter minimizes structure-borne noise and low-frequency rumble. Use the pre-attenuation pad, if you want to record high SPL instruments.
