Townsend Labs Sphere L22 Microphone


Townsend Labs Sphere L22 Microphone

The Sphere L22™ microphone system from Townsend Labs models the characteristics of the most sought-after large-diaphragm condenser microphones with amazing accuracy, and allows selection of different mics and patterns even after tracking.


The Sphere™ system consists of an extremely high precision dual channel microphone, which when paired with the included Sphere DSP plug-in (UAD, VST, AU, AAX Native) accurately models the response of a wide range of mics, including transient response, harmonics, proximity effect and three-dimensional polar response.

Record with the sound of microphones many have only dreamt about

Change mic type, polar pattern, and other microphone characteristics, even after tracking!

Audition the sound of different microphones without tiring the vocalist

Reduce bleed, undesirable room coloration, and other common issues using Off-Axis Correction™
