Capture the scene: change the polar-pattern – even after the recording
A TRUE NEXT-GEN STUDIO MICROPHONE
Freely change the polar pattern in postproduction.
Designed and engineered in Austria, the LCT 640 TS will revolutionize the way we think about the recording process. Since the signal of the front and back diaphragm is provided by independent circuitries, any kind of polar pattern can be realized dynamically - even after the recording.
Revolutionary Dual Output Mode
The LCT 640 TS provides the signal of the front and the back capsule separately. In addition to your standard XLR cable plug in the included mini 3-pin XLR and experience all the possibilities of this true next-gen microphone. Use both outputs to capture the whole session instead of committing to a single source.
Change the material you have already recorded dynamically by adjusting the polar pattern, add or subtract room, and even turn your microphone by 180°. Think about all the possibilities!
Change pattern in your DAW
After recording with the LCT 640 TS, use our plug-in to change the pattern. Jump back and tweak your material.

Standard multi-pattern mode
Plug in one 3-pin XLR and you have a large diaphragm multi-pattern condenser mic featuring the following polar patterns: omni, wide cardioid, cardioid, supercardioid and figure-8.
Magnetic Pop Filter
Hides nothing, captures everything - except plosives and hisses.
This efficient magnetic pop filter will effectively reduce pops and hisses without covering 2/3 of your vocal artists face. The most subtle and convenient way of getting the most out of every single recording.
MS Stereo with one LCT 640 TS?
Usually, mid side stereophony can only be done with two microphones. But now, it is way easier to use one LCT 640 TS. Just point the side of the microphone to the signal source and record both outputs on a stereo track in your DAW. Change the panorama for both signals to adjust the stereo width.
Perfect Match technology
The future of stereo recording.
Any two LCT 640 TS will always form a matched pair. Add another one and you will get a "matched triplet", and so on. Every single LCT 640 TS undergoes a series of measurements followed by adjustment of the polarization voltage to achieve exactly the same sensitivity in every microphone.
Innovative features make live easier
It is easily possible to miss if clipping occurred during the recording. Clipping History lets you know if the microphone clipped since it was last turned on.
Low-cut and attenuation
Adapt to every situation
Low-cut: linear, 40 Hz, 80 Hz, 160 Hz
Attenuation: 0 dB, -6 dB, -12 dB, -18 dB
Designed and engineered in Austria, LEWITT’s new LCT 640 TS will revolutionize the way we think about the recording process. Set to Dual Output Mode the signal of the mics front and back diaphragm is provided by independent circuitries, any kind of polar pattern can be realized dynamically - even after the recording. Already recorded material can be changed dynamically by adjusting the polar pattern - room sound can be added or decreased, even a turn by 180° is possible. After recording with the LCT 640 TS you can use LEWITT’s Polarizer plug-in to tweak the material with incredible ease of use. In Single Output Mode the LCT 640 TS has all the well-known characteristics of a great sounding studio multi-pattern condenser mic. It features five polar patterns: omni, wide cardioid, cardioid, supercardioid and figure-8. Perfect Match technology takes care that all LCT 640 TS will always form a matched pair. The Dual Output Mode allows to record Mid Side stereo with only one LCT 640 TS - usually only possible with two microphones. Clipping History, 4 low-cut and pre-attenuation settings round off the outstanding feature list of the LCT 640 TS. The LCT 640 TS opens doors to a new world of recording techniques.
