Swivelling Head, Multi-Pattern, Large Diaphragm Mic

Blue Microphones Reactor is now available      19/08/11
After a limited release, Blue Microphones have now announced that Reactor, their latest large diaphragm, multi-pattern studio mic is now widely available at authorized Blue dealers.
Reactor unites Blue's proprietary pre-amp circuit and innovative pattern selection method (cardioid, omni or bi-directional) with a swiveling capsule head for precise positioning, making it inherently well-suited for multiple mic setups. Here's more details in Blue's own words...
Multiple Patterns and Sonic Signature:
Drawing from the design of Blue's renowned B6 capsule, Reactor's capsule technology delivers a full sonic signature with a detailed top end, texture mids and a full bottom end. With the versatility of choosing between the cardioid, bi-directional and omnidirectional patterns, Reactor's sound can be tuned to specific uses such as full and present vocals, warm guitar acoustics, even capturing the room frequencies of drums.
Featuring an innovative swiveling design, Reactor's capsule head rotates fluidly across a 90 degree range, with resistance to hold the head in a precise position. Facilitating ease-of-use in multiple mic setups such as Mid/Side or X-Y recording, Reactor's swivel head allows for accuracy and fine-tuning of setup geometry and microphone tone.
Reactor comes with a high-quality metal carrying case for protection and storage, along with a custom-designed shockmount and a custom magnetic pop filter complete the recording experience.
