These patterns, combined with the three-stage pad and filter controls, make STC-3X a incredibly flexible microphone, ideal for vocal and instrument recording as well as overhead, room, ensemble and spoken word applications.
The pack includes must-have accessories to get you up and running straight out of the box: a nylon-mesh popshield, spider-style shockmount, 5-metre XLR cable and zip-up pouch.
Our Sontronics STC-3X Pack is an all-in-one package that guarantees professional-quality recordings in the studio, the classroom or even at home.
The package comprises our class-leading STC-3X condenser microphone (available in silver or black), which features three switchable polar patterns – cardioid, omni, figure-of-eight – for supreme versatility.
Our STC-3X microphone offers three polar patterns – selected via a switch on the rear of the mic – which will open up a world of creativity for you and your recordings.
In figure-of-eight mode (switch to the left), the STC-3X picks up sound only to the front and rear of the mic, creating intimate-sounding results on instruments such as solo violin or flute, and can also be used to capture face-to-face interview or conversation.
In cardioid mode (switch in the centre), STC-3X picks up sound to the front and sides of the mic. This gives incredible results on vocals, guitar, guitar amp, piano, drums and other acoustic instruments. Its pickup is wide enough for you to record vocals and guitar at the same time, making STC-3X Pack an ideal tool for singer/songwriters.
In omni mode (switch to the right), STC-3X picks up sound from all directions meaning you can place it further out in a space or hang it overhead to capture a natural image of whatever you’re recording. This works especially well for piano, drumkit, ensemble and choirs.
STC-3X is a hugely versatile mic, thanks to its multiple patterns and filter/pad controls. You can expect ouststanding results on everything from vocals, voiceover and instruments to drumkit, ensemble, overhead and room miking.
