NOS Audio NOS12 Modeling Tube Microphone. How do you emulate a classic microphone? You start with a classic microphone.The NOS12 starts off as a re-creation of one of the most sought after large diaphragm tube microphones of all time: the venerable C12. Its sound is bright and clear while at the same time full-bodied and smooth, characteristics that make it especially desirable for recording vocals or any instruments you want to sound larger than life.
These characteristics also make it an excellent base for emulating other classic tube microphones, such as the C12, Ela M 251, U47, U67, and C800G. Even without the modeling plugin, the NOS12 has unique features that set it apart from other microphones in its class.
Edge terminated, dual-diaphragm brass capsule based on the CK12. Vintage-style, low reflection head basket. Genuine microphone grade 6072A vacuum tube. New Old Stock (NOS) oil-in-paper capacitors at crucial positions. Customize your NOS12 with the following capsule options.It is the finest reproduction made today of the CK12 capsule that was used in the original C12 microphone. It is a center terminated capsule and is not the correct capsule for re-creating a C12. However, we have found that it sounds wonderful in the NOS12 and is an excellent choice if you are looking for an even fuller and smoother sound.
The difference in sound is negligible at a dramatically lower price due to increased availability. The premise behind the NOS12 microphone and plugin system is that the best way to authentically re-create the sounds of classic large diaphragm tube microphones is to start with a microphone that already has the same basic characteristis. The plugin will not transform the NOS12 into a dynamic, ribbon, or small diaphragm condenser because that's not what it is.Instead, we aimed to emulate as closely as possible five of the greatest microphones of all time. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. We know there is a pride and a joy that goes along with owning a great microphone. Finishing touches like the vintage style head basket, nickel finish, and custom metal wind screen and aluminum case ensure that the NOS12 looks as good as it sounds.
