Blue’s latest multi-pattern studio microphone with precision swivel head is now shipping

(Westlake Village, CA—August 18, 2011) - Blue Microphones, a leading innovator in microphone technology and design, announces the wide availability of Reactor (www.bluemic.com/reactor),  a multi-pattern, large diaphragm condenser microphone that pushes the  envelope of microphone design in functional versatility, sound and  aesthetics. Reactor unites Blue’s proprietary pre-amp circuit and  innovative pattern selection method (cardioid, omni or bi-directional)  with a swiveling capsule head for precise positioning, making it  inherently well-suited for multiple mic setups. Reactor, MSRP $499 is  now available at authorized Blue dealers.


“Reactor  takes microphone technology and design to the next level, combining  Blue’s high-quality sound capture with intuitive pattern switching and  physical microphone design,” said John Maier, CEO of Blue Microphones.  “With Reactor, we are excited to offer multiple patterns and high-end  audio capture to a wider audience, along with making multiple mic setups  more accessible.”

Drawing  from the design of Blue’s renowned B6 capsule, Reactor’s capsule  technology delivers a full sonic signature with a detailed top end,  texture mids and a full bottom end. Reactor is built upon Blue’s premium  large diaphragm, condenser capsule design, along with a custom pre-amp  platform that provides low noise and distortion. With the versatility of  choosing between the cardioid, bi-directional and omnidirectional  patterns, Reactor’s sound can be tuned to specific uses such as full and  present vocals, warm guitar acoustics, even capturing the room  frequencies of drums. Like all of Blue’s studio microphones, Reactor  employs fully-discrete, Class-A solid state components for high-quality,  professional recording performance.

Featuring  an innovative swiveling design, Reactor’s capsule head rotates fluidly  across a 90 degree range, with resistance to hold the head in a precise  position. Facilitating ease-of-use in multiple mic setups such as  Mid/Side or X-Y recording, Reactor’s swivel head allows for accuracy and  fine-tuning of setup geometry and microphone tone. Reactor’s recording  pattern selection is both intuitive and stylish, featuring LED backlit  pattern indicators and a unique magnifying optic that compliments the  contemporary design. Reactor comes with a high-quality metal  carrying case for protection and storage, along with a custom-designed  shockmount and a custom magnetic pop filter to complete the recording  experience.

Reactor, MSRP $499, is now at authorized Blue Microphones dealers. For more information, visit www.bluemic.com/reactor.
