The sE X1 Dis the first dedicated instrument mic in the X1 series. It has
been designed specifically to record sound sources producing very high
SPL’s such as kick drum with incredible accuracy and a natural sounding
full frequency response. The sE X1 D includes a custom designed and
hand crafted Titanium-sputtered capsule, a world’s first at anywhere near
its price point, which delivers exceptional performance in the handling of
super-fast percussive transients.
Every engineer loves the sound of condensers on kick drum but it's easy to get a little fearful when that might thump goes off near your precious mic. Well no need to worry any more as the X1D is tailor made to deliver all the transient detail and air or a condenser while being built brick tough.
Titanium Capsule: Custom designed and hand crafted Titanium-sputtered
capsule. The much stiffer
Titanium sputtering means that
membrane returns to its resting state incredibly quickly after
to transients compared to normal condensers. This in turn translates
incredible percussive accuracy.
Cardioid Polar Pattern: Delivers great
on-axis response, with off-axis
rejection, which is needed
when recording a drum
as part of a kit
percussion section where it may be adjacent to the other instruments.
Integrated shock protection:The mic has a built in rubber capsule mount
for isolation, dispensing with the need for a bulky external shock
Stand adapter: X1D includes a
side-mounted stand adapter for
fitting your mic to a mic stand.
140dB SPL dynamic range:Drums in particular can be loud and create very
fast transient sound waves. The sE X1D design enables this full dynamic
range to be captured
with ease without introducing
sonic artifacts that
could be caused if using inferior quality components.
80Hz Bass Cut:May be applied to decrease the level of proximity effect,
typical in cardioid pattern microphones when they are placed very close
a sound source, or to isolate from low frequency rumble coming from
sources such as kick-pedal to floor.
-10/-20 dB Pad: Useful when recording very loud signals the -10/-20 dB
Pad will reduce the output level from the microphone ensuring a high
signal is delivered to
the receiving ancillary
equipment in the recording
