The Atlantis is the three distinct FET microphones packed into a single, hand-finished brass enclosure. Designed in close collaboration with renowned Producer and Mix Engineer Fab Dupont, the Atlantis provides a dynamic and versatile wealth of sound that makes picking the right microphone for even the most troublesome sources as easy as flipping a switch. From modern, tight and bright to smoky vintage velvet, the Atlantis offers an analog abundance of ready-for-mix sounds in a single microphone.
Three separate signal paths are readily available for effortless timbral selection at the flip of a switch. The Gentle selection is warm with a vintage feel, ideal for taming bright or abrasive sound sources. The Neutral selection is classy and balanced with a smooth top-end, perfect for acoustic instruments. The Forward selection is bold, present and modern, without ever being harsh – the quintessential sound of modern Pop, Hip-Hop, and R&B.
ONE OF A KIND CAPSULE
The capsule of a microphone captures music’s most meaningful moments and converts them into electricity with relentlessly unforgiving results. Our precision-crafted 38mm capsule is one of the largest in the world -- a one of a kind super-transducer designed in Silicon Valley and tuned by hand to capture the spirit, soul and wonder of a performance with unprecedented authenticity and realism.
THREE-WAY GAIN STAGING
Further extending the versatility of the Atlantis is a three-position gain switch. The +10dB selection is ideal for use with quiet sound sources and consumer-grade audio interfaces where more character from the microphone itself is desired. The -10dB selection is useful when more color and saturation from a high-end preamp is desired, or when paired with very loud sounds. Set to 0, the output of the Atlantis is at its default output selection.
SELECTABLE POLAR PATTERNS
Polar patterns have a significant impact on the sound of a microphone because each selection determines what the microphone hears. A Cardioid selection will focus all of the microphone’s attention directly to where it is pointed. This is the most commonly used polar pattern for sound sources such as vocals. Figure-8 and Omnidirectional selections allow the sound of a room or other off-axis instrumentation to be captured in a more open, natural or authentic way. These patterns are extremely useful for recording acoustic sound sources like guitar, piano, or drums.
The Atlantis signal path is hand-populated with high resolution, low distortion polypropylene capacitors, a US made low-noise FET, and a custom wound output transformer that puts the finishing touches on every sound that passes through its copper windings. The result is a smooth, mix-ready sound brimming with life.
After being hand-polished, the Atlantis’ solid brass enclosure is hand finished with a durable, non-toxic ceramic coating and baked in an oven for curing before final assembly, burn-in, and testing.
