Studio Mic Performance With Desktop Convenience


The Perception 120 USB is the very first USB-equipped microphone from AKG, offering, they tell us studio-quality sound performance without requiring any installation or drivers.
Thomas Stubics, AKG's Product Marketing Manager for Recording and Broadcast, told us, "The new USB-equipped Perception 120 USB microphones will extend AKG's successful Perception range. With the widespread USB standard and its ease of use, this new model allows users without any recording experience to make professional-quality recordings from their home."
Here's the rest of what AKG have to say...
The Perception 120 USB is a real plug-and-play device that allows users to do podcasts, voiceovers, and studio-quality rehearsal-recordings quickly and easily. It is capable of working with Windows XP, Windows Vista and Mac OS X but also the new Windows 7. And for the price, it is one of the only USB microphones with an integrated high-quality Analogue-to-Digital Converter (24-bit, 128x oversampling) for convincing sound quality and low noise.
As of 2008, there are about two billion USB devices sold per year, and about six billion sold to date. The USB is a widely known interface for audio equipment like sound cards, active monitors, and outboard equipment, which makes the Perception 120 one of the most versatile microphones available. The Perception 120 includes a two-third-inch condenser capsule with a low-mass diaphragm delivering accurate sonic details an integrated pop filter that avoids plosives, a switchable bass cut filter, and an attenuation switch. The Perception comes complete with everything you need: a tripod table stand, a swivel mount and an USB cable.
