The X1 A
It could be your first mic - but you'll want to keep it forever.
Where the original X1 broke the cost vs. performance barrier, the X1 A completely shatters it all over again, providing an even more affordable entry point into the acclaimed X1 Series mics from sE.
With a newly-designed condenser capsule & low-noise electronics, and the same robust metal chassis and features as its immensely popular older brother, the X1 A yet again redefines what is possible for a "first microphone".
The original gold standard in affordable large-diaphragm condensers.
With a hand-crafted and individually-tuned 1" capsule, rubberized paint to minimize chassis resonance, a -10dB pad and a high-pass filter, the X1 has the sound and features you'd expect from a serious high-end studio mic, at only a fraction of the cost.
Also available as part of:
The X1 Vocal Pack
(with shockmount & cable)
The X1 Studio Bundle
(with shockmount, Reflexion Filter X, & cable)
The X1 R
A passive ribbon to bring out the midrange magic in your tracks.
Drawing on some of the technologies in our Voodoo ribbon mics, the X1 R is a vintage-modern hybrid that provides all the inherent smoothness of a hand-crafted ribbon mic, but with more versatility, durability, and ease of use than the delicate ribbons of yesteryear.
The X1 D
D is for Drums. A titanium capsule makes all the difference.
Titanium is strong, light, and - above all else - stiff. This means it reacts quickly enough to capture the very fastest of transients (the initial hit of a drum stick, the pick on a bass guitar string) faster than a traditional gold-sputtered diaphragm.
Until the X1 D, such diaphragms were available on a very select few mics - and a very expensive few at that. Read more to find out how the X1 D can change your percussion tracks forever.
