PERFECT TWINS for stereo recording of any acoustic instruments in studio and on stage
The C414 XLS reference multipattern condenser microphone offers a choice of nine polar patterns for the perfect sonic capture for every application. The C414 XLS maintains the sonic character of the legendary C414 B-ULS, the preferred AKG C414 version since 1971. Engineered for highest linearity and neutral sound, it has been the most versatile large-diaphragm microphone for decades.

The C 414 family has been one of the crucial world’s most widely-used and respected studio and stage microphones in audio history. New useful features and even greater ease of use are the answer to the demands from our ever–growing customer base in every single place the world.
NINE PICKUP PATTERNS
Nine pickup patterns give you the perfect sound for every application – without any compromise. Signal-bleeding from other sources will also be minimized quick and easily. Moreover, for on-stage applications gain-before-feedback will also be maximized.
PEAK HOLD LED
The polar pattern indicator LEDs also provide an overload indication. With conventional peak indicators, overload peaks lasting only for a fraction of a second may easily escape your attention. The new peak hold function makes sure you are going to notice even the shortest overload peak: If the output level of the microphone exceeds the overload limit, the currently active polar pattern LED will change to red for about 3 seconds.

C 414 XLS
• maintains the sonic character of the legendary C 414 B-ULS – the longest-lived C 414 model• engineered for highest linearity and neutral sound• well-referred to as the most universal and versatile large diaphragm microphone ever• proven reference quality widely used for accurate, beautifully detailed pickup of any acoustic instrument• delivers the well-known C 414 Sound – for any application
Live-sound engineers as well as engineers for theater, opera, or musical productions steadily use the same microphones for the same purposes every night, and may even install some microphones permanently. In Lock Mode, all controls on the microphone are disabled so the settings you selected for a specific application (polar pattern, preattenuation pad, bass cut filter) cannot be changed accidentally.
