Get a full set of must-have accessories for your sE Electronics microphone with the sE Isolation Pack. The Isolation Pack includes one of sE’s upgraded shock mounts, which perfectly fits your sE X1, sE2200a II, or sE Magneto condenser microphones. Something the seasoned engineers here at Sweetwater particularly love about this shock mount is the handy quick release, which lets you swap out your mics in a hurry. On top of that, the sE Isolation Pack includes an integrated pop shield that packs heroic plosive-blocking power, and it’s fully adjustable to match any compatible microphone.
This sE Electronics RN17 stereo pair gives you a perfectly matched set of amazing sounding pencil condenser microphones. The first sE pencil condenser mic to sport a large scale, high-performance transformer and a slim 17mm gold-sputtered Mylar capsule, the RN17 gives you jaw-dropping definition and detail, delivering lucid transparency, with a silky shine. There are several interchangeable capsules available for the RN17, but this matched set ships with a pair of cardioid capsules, giving you the most common combination of consistent sound and off-axis noise rejection. The set also includes a duo of custom shock-mounts and a premium flight-case – everything you need to safely transport your sE Electronics RN17 stereo pair of condenser microphones.
As you might imagine, there are a lot of professional audio engineers here at Sweetwater. We all have our favorite gear, from the mics and preamps we love to the DAWs and monitors we swear by. When it comes to ribbon microphones, few engineers are mild-weathered about the subject. Some of us love their transparent performance and incredible detail, whereas others complain about their subdued high-frequency response. Here’s the mic that’s going to end the debate once and for all! Designed and built by Rupert Neve and sE Electronics, the RNR1 active ribbon microphone is a total game-changer!
What happens when sE Electronics and legendary electronics designer Rupert Neve team up to design a large-diaphragm tube condenser microphone? An all-out assault on the state of the art. The RNT incorporates a high-voltage tube circuit within the microphone body, a separate power supply sporting a discrete Class A amplifier circuit with the same custom op-amps as Rupert Neve Designs’ flagship 5088 mixing desk, two of Rupert’s custom transformers, and a custom sE mic capsule that delivers staggeringly high-bandwidth frequency response and enormous headroom. The Floor Box (power supply) gives you three gain settings and two switchable active highpass filters. A 9-way switch varies the polar pattern from omni to cardioid to figure-8, with three steps in between each setting.
sE Electronics rocks too with their Voodoo VR1 mic, which is one of the coolest, most affordable ribbon mics out there. Based on some of the innovations sE created when they made the world-famous RNR1 ribbon mic, sE Electronics designed the Voodoo VR1, an affordable, passive ribbon microphone. Designed by sE Electronics’ CEO Siwei Zou, the Voodoo VR1 performs amazingly well across its 20Hz-18kHz frequency response. It can be used on an array of sound sources, and the Voodoo VR1 truly shines on acoustic instruments and guitar cabinets.
Another first from sE… simple, but highly effective. This is a professional solution to the problem of needing different pop shields to suit vocal performances. The device has a strong goose neck with both a standard fabric membrane and a pro metal pop shield on a hinge mechanism. You can use either separately or both simultaneously depending on the application.
A tube mic – but even better! sE Electronics puts its own spin on the classic tube mic with the Gemini II. We’ve all heard tube mics on some of the most famous vocal recordings of all time, but you’ve never heard a tube mic like this. The Gemini II puts a cool spin on the traditional tube mic, using both a 12AX7 at the input stage and a 12AU7 at the output stage. Two tubes, huh? You might think this would put too much tubiness in play, but in actuality it gives you the body and warmth of a tube mic coupled with the top-end response of the “best of the best” solid state condensers. How could you go wrong? Many things promise to give you the best of both worlds, and few really do.
Grab an sE Electronics guitaRF reflexion filter and get the isolated guitar cabinet sounds you’ve always wanted, without the hassle or expense of building an isolation booth. The guitaRF is extremely simple and easy to use. In addition to a mounting bracket, which lets you support or suspend your favorite condenser or ribbon mic, there’s a hole in the filter that’s the perfect size to stick an SM57 or similar-size dynamic just off center of the filter itself. The result is that you can stick one mic on center and another off axis, all while blocking out room reflections and keeping both mics in phase. Its special flat base lets you slide the guitaRF right up to your amp for extreme close miking, and the whole structure is height adjustable, so you can line your mics up with the sweet spot of your guitar cab.
The sE Electronics Studio Studio Mic Pop Screen is a perfect example of all of the advantages a metal pop filter gives you over a standard cloth mesh model. Made from finely perforated metal, each groove in the Studio Mic Pop Screen is louvered to redirect ultra-low-frequency breaths, virtually eliminating the threat of plosive pops. But that’s not all. At the same time, the sE Studio Mic Pop Screen doesn’t affect high-frequencies the way cloth pop filters do, never dulling your sound. And since its made of metal, you can rest assured that your sE Studio Mic Pop Screen will last for the long haul.
What an elegant and simple way to improve the sound of your acoustic space! Not everyone has the budget or the space to work in a perfectly “tuned” and treated acoustic space. But that doesn’t mean you can’t sound great. Believe it or not, sE Electronics’ Reflexion Filter does an amazing job of making your mic sound better, because its six different layers diffuse the sound waves around the mic. Better yet, it mounts to any mic stand – you can take this portable acoustic treatment into other rooms or to other locations! The Reflexion Filter costs a fraction of what a full-room treatment would cost, and it does an outstanding job taming the reflections in the room. If you record, you’ll want this on your favorite mic!
