Lyra Ultra HD Multimode USB Microphone from AKG
Ultra HD-grade 24-bit/192kHz audio resolution
Showcasing advanced circuitry inspired by 70 years of legendary AKG acoustic engineering, the AKG Lyra provides the highest audio quality in its field, with acoustically transparent, 4K-compatible, Ultra HD-grade 24-bit/192kHz audio resolution.
Lyra arrives with the innovative AKG Adaptive Capsule Array, a nifty little feature that allows user-selectable capture modes which are optimized for any performance and makes it easy to deliver a professional, optimal sound for any given application. The simple plug-and-play operation enables creators of all experience levels to get set up with and start recording in no time, all the while the easily accessible controls provide flawless and effortless operation.
An internal self-adjusting shock mount reduces contact noise, while a built-in sound diffuser along with AKG’s proprietary Internal Element Overload Prevention automatically decreases noise, gets rid of pops and boosts signal levels.
Four Versatile Capture Modes
Wider stereo separation, room ambience, and depth The AKG Adaptive Capsule Array adopts four versatile capture modes to accommodate to performance needs, eradicating guesswork and giving users the ability to capture unprecedented audio quality in a wide range of recording scenarios. Front mode confines the target sound from distracting background noise by blocking unwanted sounds at the back and sides of the microphone, ideal for capturing or live-streaming spoken word, vocals, or close-mic’d instruments.
Front and back mode captures and mixes together sound equally on all sides, which is perfect for face-to-face interviews and duets. Tight Stereo mode captures audio in true stereo with discreet left and right audio, delivering great separation for side-by-side interviews or panel discussions, or for recording instruments like drums or piano. Wide stereo mode captures audio with a wider stereo separation, room ambience, and depth. This is optimal for dynamic situations where users want to capture sounds from all around the mic such as documentaries, field recordings, or spontaneous jam sessions.
Engineered to work straight out of the box Designed with plug-and-play simplicity, Lyra applies ease of use for all creators to set up and record straight away, regardless of experience level. It requires no assembly, no need for a separate audio interface and thanks to its seamless software integration, Lyra has been engineered to work straight out of the box.
Compatibility with Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android devices shows Lyra’s versatility so users can swiftly record ideas in the studio or on the go. Whether you’re recording music in a digital audio workstation, live streaming on Twitch or shooting a YouTube video, AKG have made using Lyra as simple as plugging in a USB cable and pressing go-live or record.
Full Focus, No Interruptions
Zero latency Lyra is rigged with a “zero-latency” headphone jack and headphone volume knob that cancels out the short delay between speaking into a microphone and hearing the signal in the headphones, preventing creators from breaking concentration and helping them maintain full focus on their performance.
A Visual Overview of the AKG Lyra USB Mic
Quick and easy control with timeless aesthetics Inspired by classic studio microphones like the legendary AKG C414, Lyra features a sleek design that combines quick and easy control with timeless aesthetics. Users needn’t worry about losing control thanks to essential functions like capture modes, volume levels and mute all of which are ergonomically placed and easily accessed right on the mic.
For easy positioning on a desktop, Lyra comes with an integrated desktop stand featuring hassle-free, built-in cable management. The mic may also be mounted to a traditional mic stand or microphone boom arm for added flexibility in the studio. To top it all off, Lyra includes Ableton Live 10 Lite recording software, and works flawlessly with all major audio and video production software and online platforms.
